Keep those Love Grown Hot Oats entries coming!
Yesterday morning I had a boat load of phone calls to make. NO FUN. I now have a dentist appointment, a car appointment (Safety recall), have talked to my financial advisor, figured out why I’m still being billed for cable in Dallas, and have changed my address with Chase Bank.
I had breakfast before all that. A change from my oatmeal! This was Greek yogurt with vanilla and cinnamon, banana, and almond butter.
Also, I stood at my computer for lots of the morning, but REALLY want to figure out how to set up our treadmill with a computer desk. I wouldn’t use it all the time, but since I’m going to be working from home so much this spring it’d be nice to get a little movement. It doesn’t even count to get up to go to the bathroom because it is right next to me:) I found THIS online, but don’t really want to pay for it. Maybe I need to go to lowes….
Around noon I left for the gym where I ran 5 miles and then completed Strength A from Best Body Bootcamp. For my run, I used my increasing interval run but picked my “recovery” pace up to 7.0 from 6.7. Once I finished my intervals I was close to 5 miles so I sprinted at the end to finish up in less than 40 minutes. I had to run 3 minutes at a 6:30 pace, but I did it!!! I know I need to keep pushing myself like this to make progress with my speed.
I brought lunch and ate it in the car (egg, hummus, and spinach on a bagel, snap peas, and an apple) because I was heading straight to get my flu shot. I usually am so good about it but totally forgot this year. My doctor mother will have none of that (especially with the huge outbreaks) so I made sure to get one today. Shots (and needles in general) don’t bother me, so it was super quick. My arm is a little sore though.
Then at home I talked to P for a bit. Figuring out travel plans when the Navy dictates your schedule is nootttt easy, but I think I get to see him soon!
The rest of the afternoon was spent working on a few presentation proposals that are due at the end of the month, and around 6:30 my stomach started grumbling for dinner. AND I AM TERRIBLE! I told myself I’d take a picture of dinner since I forgot at lunch…but then I didn’t. I went super simple and had black bean soup with spinach and tempeh mixed in, and baby carrots on the side.
Now (it’s 7:10pm as I write this) I’m on the couch with tea and about to get something sweet for dessert. I have a client at 8, so the end of the Bachelor will be DVRed.
- Do you do any speed work?
- Have you gotten a flu shot? (I know some people aren’t down with vaccines)
