Damn Camera Pt II

by Meghann on August 7, 2009

Yesterday I made the rookie mistake of leaving my camera at home and for some reason this morning my cord to upload my pictures stopped working. I think my camera is having a good ole laugh trying to keep me from my regular posting schedule. Damn you camera!

Oh well, I was able to grab my USB/ SD card reader at lunch so now I can fill you in with the rest of my Friday. 🙂

This morning really did start out great. I woke up a tad on the earlier side because I was really craving a long run. My IT band was feeling very loved after a good stretch yesterday and gave me permission to run to my heart’s content.

I ran a fabulous 8 mile run at a 9:35 pace. The run felt great and went by relatively quickly.

To speed up the breakfast process last night I had pre-prepared a single portion of Kath’s Oatmeal Pancake batter. Letting the batter sit in the fridge over night really gave it a great consistency. The oatmeal soaked up the egg resulting in a very dense, chewy pancake that was easy to cook and flip.

For the topping I heated up a very ripe peach with just a drizzle of syrup and some peanut butter. It was very yummy. 🙂

(accidentally deleted picture… I promise it was pretty 🙁 )

The oatmeal pancake was the perfect protein packed meal to re-fuel with after a great 8 mile run. 🙂

Midmorning snack I had my second go at Kashi’s Dark Mocha Almond chewy granola bar.

The mocha flavor was a bit stronger today and I am still digging the mini chocolate chips on top. Yum.

Lunch today was very rushed due to the fact I had some last minute packing for Tampa to do. It was a good thing I had some leftovers from last night to rely on in a hurry.

I mixed the left over Tempeh and Brussel Sprout & Beet Mix with 1/4 cup Cous Cous, Spinach, Pecans and Raisins.

The cous cous did a great job of bringing the meal together. I ended up being a very filling, tasty meal.

I’m heading to Tampa straight after work and have plans to immediately meet up with Jenna and Anne P. for lots of Wine and Girl Talk. I am in desperate need of both!

I am crossing my fingers this weekend is better then the previous!

Have a great weekend! Things are turning up for you and Jenna, both – I can feel it!

I just love the Kashi Dark Mocha Almond bars! After you reviewed them, I was excited to see that my grocery store in Wisconsin had the new flavor as well. I have had one pretty much every day this week and now need to restock! Agreed that the mini choc chips make the bar…

I need to try those Kashi bars! How do you think Kashi compares to Cliff Z-bars?

Do you eat or drink anything before your morning runs or do you find you’ve got enough fuel to do it on an empty stomach?

Last weekend for my long run I made pb/banana toast and then had to wait for it to settle so didn’t end up running quite first thing!

Thanks!

Great job on the run! The pancakes sound delicious! I’ll take your word on it that they looked pretty too 😉

Have fun this weekend 🙂

Oatmeal pancakes with peaches on top sounds yummy. I made ones with peaches, blueberries, and bananas cooked in a month ago! They were great!

hope you and maddie have fun this weekend!!!

Pecans! I’ve never put pecans in my salads/dishes. It’s always almonds or walnuts – I’m going to have to get some on my next TJ’s run. Great idea! I’m going to have to try putting the pancake batter in the fridge overnight, too – when I let it sit for a few minutes before cooking it usually works out pretty well but letting it sit overnight will be even better!

I am always so impressed with your use of leftovers.. I need to get more creative! i never have enough patience, I get too hungry thinking about it haha.
