Yesterday I felt sort of under the weather…it’s the kind of day where I want to just be anti-social, drink hot chocolate, and sketch. But it’s also the sort of day where lots is happening and I have loads to do, whether I ignore the fact or not. So because of the circumstances, I pampered myself at breakfast. A delightful pause before the flurries of activity. This I did with creamy, sweet Swiss Oatmeal. While I waited for my breaky to set (it takes about a half an hour), I munched on a small orange and some red grapes. Pre-breakfast.
Swiss Oatmeal with Blueberries
- 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- ¼ cup blueberries, mashed
- 1/8 cup organic rice milk
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 tsp. agave nectar
- 1 packet Truvia (opt)
Mix and mash it all together and then stick it in the fridge for 30-45 minutes. Garnish with a couple blueberries and sliced almonds.
Today: I braved a 4 mile run on the treadmill today…I was wondering if I should. Maybe it was too early with my injury. I did it, but it was a hard run and I had to be very careful not to get out of breath. It seems that my injury involves bruised ribs or something similar, so there’s a lot of pressure on my chest. I’m under the impression that I shouldn’t of run, but I guess I’m feeling a little desperate to get some training in. I’ll try to take the rest of my day easy and head to bed earlier tonight.
I think this afternoon will have what yesterday did not have time for…some sketching. I’m working on a new oil painting project, but I need to get some more sketching done before I actually put some paint to canvas. I get kind of giddy when it comes to art projects. Me thinks I’ll be doing some apple snacking with caramel apple dip too…just saying. Should be fun.
