Yesterday was one of those days where, no matter what I ate, it was not enough. Of course, I tried to fill the gaping Hunger Hole with healthy things - a salad with quinoa, an apple, a handful of granola. But towards the end of the day, I have to admit that The Hunger was mainly being staunched by this:
Can you blame me?! Helloooo, there is Dark Chocolate Chex Mix in the house. It's not like I'm gonna show a lot of self-restraint.
I actually meant to write earlier this morning, but I got so backlogged! This week I've been in a breakfast rut (one that I am in no hurry to get out of, by the way). This has been my go-to for the last few days.
Oat bran is back! This bowl was with grated apple, peanut butter, cinnamon, honey, and some raisins. Mmmm. Last fall (2011) I ate oat bran so often that I kind of got sick of it. This week is my first time eating it since then, and I think absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. I was eating on autopilot this morning while hurriedly trying to finish the rest of this book, which I will tell you more about next week!
I've been doing some editing and administrative work for CVMM, getting ready for the One-Hour Swim tomorrow. I am so ready to be done with this thing! My plan is to divide the hour into 15 minute blocks, and swim 1,050 yards on a 1:25 pace in each block, leaving about 10 seconds rest in between. I think I can hold this pace for about 3 sets, and by the last 15 minute block, I may drop down to 1:30 if I'm super-tired. If I can hold to this plan, I should finish at 4,150 - 4200. Which, as a sprinter/middle-distancer in a long-distance event, would be amazing.
All that remains to be seen, however. I'm due to report to the pool deck at 8:30 AM. Wish me luck!
And P.S., today I made the second batch of Jen's Make-up Cookies this week. My family loved them, and I'm planning to take them to the pool tomorrow for everyone to try out!
