You see, when I take Sadie for a run before work, I knock out both my exercise and her exercise for the morning in one fell swoop. This means I don’t have to take her on a long walk after my workout which, therefore, means I get to sleep in a bit!
This morning, as Ryan headed off to the gym in the 5 a.m. hour, I slept in, promising Sadie a good run when I awoke.
When Ryan arrived home, I hopped out of bed, quickly changed and took Sadie on our typical running loop, completing 5 miles before walking a bit to cool down.
The weather in Central Florida is ideal for running right now! I checked my phone before we left and it said it was 60 degrees. Perfection!
Once our run was over, I was ready for breakfast.
Breakfast this morning came together in a flash thanks to some preparation last night.
Overnight oats awaited me!
Last night I combined:
- 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- Chia seeds
I let it soak all night and then this morning I added a scoop of chocolate peanut butter to the mix for some healthy fats and extra flavor.
Stir it up!
Sure it looks like baby regurgitation, but it tastes pretty darn good and that’s all I’m after!
I think Sadie smelled the peanut butter because she was really into givin’ out the lovin’ as I was eating my breakfast.
Sadie hugs are the best.
Time to hop in the car and head to work. On our run this morning I saw some really scary tire marks that led right into a lake near our apartment. Just a reminder to drive extra safe today!
