Speed it up, please!

The internet has been so fickle this morning! It’s been partway loading and then stopping. VERY irksome! However, I did still have a nice and relaxing morning at home (even though my nights are late, my mornings are long and relaxing.

This little guy greeted me bright and early:

1/2 cup oats

1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 tbsp peanut butter

2 tbsp skim milk

1/2 banana

garnishes: prunes, raisins, pecan (good addition!)

I also had a pot of coffee to myself and read my news. Poor John Updike.

After fiddling around trying to get the internet to work and a few good hours of procrastination, I decided to do a Yoga Download.  I did Power Yoga #4, 25-minute free class.  It was pretty arm-heavy (lots of planks and downward-dogs, but it felt great to stretch out my muscles after Step yesterday.

For lunch, I made a variation of my favorite sandwich of all time: cheddar and pear (I usually make it with Granny Smith apples) on cinnamon raisin bread.  De-lish.  I broiled it in the oven until the cheese was gooey, although i toasted the sides a little bit.

This sandwich is also great if your fruit is a little unripe; cooking it brings out the juices and flavor.   I made a carrot fortress inspired by Caitlin to protect my sammie from the gerkin juice.

I have a break between my afternoon and night classes, so I’m going to try to squeeze in a nice workout at the gym and pick up my iron supplements.  Runner’s World has an article about running newbies that’s pretty interesting (what it feels like, how to prevent injury, etc.). I feel like a newbie again, and I want to be as cautious as possible.

Have a great Wednesday!
