So far. So good.

Beautiful Friday weather? Check!

We’re expecting highs in the 80s this weekend, but I was surprisingly greeted with a cool breeze when I walked out the door this morning. Now there’s nothing but sunshine. Love it.

Morning workout? Check!

I should have taken a photo of the gym at 6:00am this morning. It was EMPTY and perfectly peaceful. I managed to get a good 15 minute warm up walk in on the treadmill and completed NROLFW 4B. I even had a good chat with one of the T3 coaches about marathons. He’s training for a small Jacksonville marathon next month that I hadn’t even heard of, but am now questioning whether I should run it too. Bad Meghann. It’s not hard to talk me into new races. However, I know I’ll have to sit this one out. πŸ˜‰

Delicious Breakfast? Check!


Last week I found myself scraping the bottom of the almond butter jar. Bad news for the almond butter wrap I was making, good news for the oats in a jar creation I’ve been craving.


I tried something different this morning. Instead of overnight oats, I used hot. I’m not the first person to try this, but it was still a first for me. The verdict? It was good, but I think I preferred the overnight oats in a jar combo.


In the jar:

  • Pumpkin oats
  • Pumpkin granola
  • Apple


All done.


Ready to tackle the last Friday before Thanksgiving? Check!

You’re so lucky that you’ve got temperature in the 80s! We’re below freezing now (sadly, but I guess it’s about time for winter to start in these parts) and I had to bust out mittens on the way to the gym this morning. Thank goodness though, I treated myself to an automatic car starter so it was lovely to get into a nice warm car! Happy Friday!

I’ve actually only ever done hot oats in a jar! I love it because it melts the peanut butter, soooo good!

I love living in Florida sometimes. No layering to go workout! πŸ™‚

I just did OIAJ the other morning. I’ve never done overnight oats in a jar but have always been curious to try. Will definitely have to tackle it upon the emptying of my next nut butter jar! πŸ™‚

80s this weekend?! I think it was low 30s in Boston this morning, but it’s sunny, so at least there’s that. πŸ™‚

I’m a bit envious of 80 degree weather- it’s definitely no where near that here in RI.. I had hot oats in a jar this morning with peanut butter- but it was my first time making eggwhite oats- which were pretty good I much admit.

I have a jar of Maranatha that’s ready to be made into OAIJ! Tomorrow is the lucky morning :).

Happy Friday, and so, so jealous of your temperatures. It is windy and freezing where I am!

The Jacksonville Bank marathon was the one I had been training for and the one I’m (99.9% sure on this one, although the doc says he thinks I MAY be able to do it) knocked out of due to my stress fracture. I was really looking forward to it.

I WISH my gym was empty in the AM. I get there when it opens at 5 .. and people are usually standing outside the front door at 4:50 waiting for the person with the key to come. I wait in my warm car until it is open. Still.. there are a lot of people. And when I am leaving at 6:30 or 6:45.. its packed!
