Peachy Keen

by Meghann on September 19, 2008

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone is as excited for the upcoming weekend as I am. Lately my weekends have been jammed pack, which is fine with me. I love being on the go all weekend, its so much better then sitting at my desk all week for work.

I also love the weekend, because it means longer time for running. Since I try to run before work during the week I usually only have about an hour and at my pace is usually no more then 5 miles. But on the weekend I get to step it up and see what distance I can reach before my body can’t take it anymore. I have two great long runs planned for Saturday and Sunday! They’re the last long runs I can fit in to my schedule before my 15k next weekend.

Here are my stats from this morning’s run:

Time: 54 min 23 secs

Distance: 5.24 miles

(I’ve decided not to include the calories burned estimates anymore, until I get an HRM I really don’t trust the stats they provide online)

 

This morning’s cereal creation was another experiment.

 

 

I decided to puree a peach in my food processor, before adding it to the cereal. It came out with the same mushy texture as my applesauce that I usually add on top. I combined the pureed peach with ½ cup of Kashi Go Lean, ¾ cup of Kashi Heart to Heart, and a handful of grapes. A great morning combo.

 

 

 

I really liked the idea of pureeing the peach before adding it to the cereal. It mixed so well and every piece of cereal had a little bit of peach attached to it. I think I’m going to experiment with pureeing more types of fruit before adding them to my cereal.

 

Countodown minus 8 hours until the weekend!

Does anyone have anything fun planned?

 

As I said above, my weekend outlook is pretty filled.

Friday – Laundry, Bloggers Dinner (!)

Saturday – Long run, Shopping!, Picking my Mommy up from the airport, Driving to my parents

Sunday – Long run, baking, family birthday party, back to o-town, grocery shopping, relaxing

I’ve never had peach with cereal before – may have to give it a try!

I might be in my house, ALL BY MYSELF, for 7 hours tomorrow! That rarely happens. My daughter has homecoming (parade, football game, dance) and my husband and son are going to the NIU game.

I’ll probably end up cooking and cleaning instead of watching movies, but I am looking forward to it!
