Hey hey. Hope you had a lovely Waffle/Workout Wednesday… whichever you prefer.
Today was one of those days. One in which my morning bowl of creamy, oaty goodness was the highlight of my entire day.
I get excited over oatmeal easily, and today I was extra enthused because I tried a new-to-me hot cereal and almond butter. Hot cereal, fresh berries… the ideal way to start any day.
1/3 c. Arrowhead Mills Organic 4 Grain + Flax hot cereal, 1/2 banana, 1/2 T chia, vanilla
topped with 1/2 nectarine, raspberries, scoop of crunchy Barney Butter
I loved the cereal, but I did not love the almond butter. I’ve never purchased BB before, but it was on sale and I had a coupon, so I added it to my basket. I’ve realized – as a nut butter connoisseur – that I don’t care for nut butters with added sugar. It’s not that they’re necessarily too sweet, it’s the texture and consistency that is notably different. Anyone agree?

Though today was a productive one, I didn’t get to my scheduled speed workout – uh oh. I want to keep on track with my SmartCoach training plan, but the grey skies weren’t motivating me to power out 7-minute miles today. I think I may actually be missing the Chico sunshine.
Some Workout Wednesday, I’m going to give this kettlebell yoga workout a swing! My two new favorites in one – yes please!
I already know tomorrow will be a better day! :)
