A bug flew in my mouth today while I was running. Before I knew it I was choking it down, gagging from the thought of what I just swallowed.
I don’t even want to attempt to count the amount of bugs I have digested over the last year while running. I guess it’s just what happens when you run with you mouth hanging open, gasping for air. But I mean really, what’s the harm in swallowing a little bug? As my Dad would say, it’s just a little extra protein. 😉
With the bug incident not deterring my running at all I still managed to get in a 6.5 mile run before breakfast.
Breakfast was a colorful masterpiece as per usual.
Last night I made a quick breakfast cookie to enjoy this morning. Before I went to bed I mixed together
- 1/2 cup Country Choice Organic Multi Grain Cereal
- 1 tablespoon BTR Mystic Mountain Trail Mix
- 1 tablespoon Naturally Nutter Chocolate Butter Toffee Peanut Butter
- 1 spoonful Applesauce
- Shredded Coconut
I flattened it on a plate and then put it in the fridge over night.
This morning I topped it with 1/2 of this container of Pina Colada Coconut Milk Yogurt.
I enjoyed the flavor of this one, but I still think the Coconut Milk Yogurts are too sweet for my palette. There were again too many grams of sugar on the label for my liking, but it was great that it covered my breakfast cookie like icing.
I chopped some Strawberries to sprinkle over the ‘icing.’
During my run I was really craving an Orange, so I cut one up on the side.
The orange was nice and refreshing. It was so juicy I felt like I was drinking a nice tall glass of OJ as I was eating it.
Today is my last day of work in the office for the week. Yay! I guess that means its time to get busy, busy!
Do you travel a lot for work? How do you balance healthy living while traveling?
