Don’t you hate it when your normal “routine” gets disrupted? Today was like that. I had a hair appointment scheduled for 6:30am! UGH! So not a morning person. I stumbled out of bed at 6AM and got ready to go. I didn’t have time for breakfast but you NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST. Skipping breakfast = overeating later. Especially standing in line at Starbucks and gazing at the scones and muffins and yummy oatmeal…..
Anyways! I had some unsweetened ice tea and a few strawberries for my “first” breakfast. That was all I had time for.
My hairdresser is a sweetheart and took me next door to get coffee from Starbucks. Then, after my appointment, I had my Oikos Greek Yogurt and a small plum.
The yogurt and plum I ate for breakfast were NOT filling. My morning snack is my banana and some peanut butter. The peanut butter is a single serving packet that I found at Whole Foods for only 69 cents!
I did not eat the whole package. It was just too much. This was the first time I’ve tried Almond Butter. I liked it. It was nuttier than regular peanut butter. But it was also very rich.
Today I ran at lunchtime. And I RAN IN THE RAIN! This was a first for me. I’ve gotten caught in the rain on accident, but never set out to run when it was rainy. And it wasn’t that bad! I figured, if people can run the Boston Marathon (and survive Heartbreak Hill), I can run for 30 minutes in the rain! 🙂 And I will confess that I did fantasize a bit that I was running in a marathon.
My time was great too.

While I was running, I saw a SEA LION in the Willamette River!! I was so surprised! He seemed a long way from home. It happened so fast I couldn’t get a picture 🙁 but this is what he looked like:
He poked his little snout out of the water, spun around onto his back and swam a bit before ducking back under the water! It was such a surprise, I stopped running to watch.
QUESTION: What is the coolest thing you’ve ever seen while out exercising? And what do you usually have for breakfast?
