Happy October

October 2, 2010

It’s officially October.  Aka race month, aka mini vacation month, aka Halloween month, aka midterms… but let’s think about that next week.

Today’s breakfast, which by the time this post goes up with be yesterday’s breakfast started last night or two nights ago…this is confusing!

Anywho I mixed me up some pumpkin pie oats — and brought them into our room in search of better lighting.  Joey would have found me very weird had he woken up and seen me snapping photos under my bedside lamp 😛

In the mix went:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1T chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg

Uhh yeah, I may literally have dreamed about getting to eat this bowl and it lived up to my expectations.

These were good but they needed a little somethin somethin.  And by that I mean a drizzle of maple syrup.

Ohhhh yeahhhh, that’s more like it

Lunch = stir-fry. 

I steamed an orange bell pepper and some broccoli till soft then mixed them with some hoison and soy sauce.  Topped with crispy tofu.

Plus this Maple Brown Cow

And a taste of this acai drink.

Sidenote: I have a thing about plastic bottles.  They totally gross me out!!!  I had to pretend I didn’t have this phobia while taking the quickest sip possible.  Was I convincing, Beanie?

Oh and I added some cashews to my stirfry.  Did you know I eat cashews like it’s my job?  I might have a problem…

I came home hell bent on going on a run.  My toe felt completely fine it was my stomach that didn’t.  Maybe eating a banana and wayyy toooo many cashews RIGHT before running isn’t such a good idea.  Otherwise it was a great 4 miles 🙂  Hello, ten mile run, our date for this weekend is back on!

My last 3 miles were ALL 9:40’s exactly.  So weird!

We enjoyed a little family time afterwards and even though I had to deal with an attack on my preference for non-meat over meat the rest of the night was quite lovely.

Chicken kabobs were on the menu.  I brought a leftover potato bean burger.  So sue me.

I threw my “burger” on the grill to heat it up along with the bun for a little toasting action.  Tasted just as good as last night 🙂  Also on the plate:

  • Cold veggie salad
  • Beets and their greens with a little onion.  My brother is a beet pro!  I’m jealous.
  • Pasta salad with sundried tomato, olives and feta

I also tossed a home grown lettuce piece on my “burger.”  Consider it a huge compliment if I use your lettuce on my sandwich/burger/wrap because I usually hate lettuce.

I stuck a piece of chicken on my plate but ended up giving it and half of my “burger” to Joey.  I needed room for pie!

Pumpkin, of course 😀

I “shared” a piece with Joey and by that I mean I ate 70% and he ate 30% because he “doesn’t like pie.”  What a FA-REAK.

I spent the rest of the evening on the couch with this little guy.  Also named Joe.  I guess I attract people and animals with that name.

I, for one, am pooped.  So is Tonka, who’s sleeping on my half of the bed!! 

How was your first day of October??

    I don’t like pie.. well, actually I DO like pumpkin pie. Just not many others.. the crust always bothered me.

    My first day of October was alright. I did a good job of getting started on my goals so I guess that’s a big plus. 🙂

      Well if you like pumpkin at least you have some sense 🙂 Getting a start on things is the hardest part, it’ll be all down hill from here!
