I have to admit running on a treadmill that an awesome view of the ocean was a fun way to wake up every morning on my cruise, but there is something about running on the streets as opposed to a treadmill that can never be topped.
I laced up my running shoes this morning as soon as the alarm beeped and hit the pavement for a glorious 4.5 mile run. The best part was how fast the run went. Running on treadmill always feels like forever, but running around the block feels like it takes no time at all.
After having muesli on the ship yesterday morning, I was inspired to make a homemade version for myself this morning.
Last night I combined
- 1/2 cup Dry Multigrain Hot Cereal
- 1/2 cup Oikos Plain Greek Yogurt
- Dried Cranberries
- Unsweetened Coconut
- Crushed Walnuts
I put the pix in the fridge over night and then this morning I topped it with fresh strawberries, blueberries and 2 spoonfuls of Meg’s Tropical Jammin Granola.
I was pleasantly surprised to return to work this morning to a relatively tame inbox. It feels like I have been gone forever, but in reality I only missed one real work day. I need to take advantage of vacations over holiday weekends more often!
I think my body knew it was back to routine because right on schedule it was ready for a snack at 10:00am.
I dug in the bottom of my bar basket this morning discovered a Raspberry Chocolate Kashi Bar I had forgot was in there. It was a great sweet snack.
When I went shopping yesterday I basically just bought everything that looked appealing and had no game plan on what to have for meals the rest of the week. My lunch today was randomly thrown together when I walked in the door out.
I found a single can of tuna fish hidden in my pantry so I made an easy tuna melt.
On top of a multi grain english muffin I piled on spinach, a mix of Tuna, Oikos Yogurt, Tomato, Jalapenos and Crasins, then a slice of cheese. I stuck it under the broiler until the cheese was melted.
On the side I had some blue corn tortilla chips with verde salsa, a little pickle and a handful of fresh cherries.
You may see a lot of blue corn tortillas in the future. The bag is on the verge of going stale and I hate to waste food.
Now I can spend the rest of my afternoon trying to figure out dinner. Nothing makes the afternoon fly like piecing together future meals in your head. 🙂
