Morning friends! It’s a rainy day in the DC area – perfect for oatmeal. Excuse the messy bowl – just keepin’ it real over here.
I made one of my standard fave combos – my Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal with frozen wild blueberries stirred in, topped with cottage cheese, walnuts, and cinnamon! Great mix of protein (cottage cheese + milk), healthy fat (walnuts), fiber (oats, banana, wild blueberries), and deliciousness (all of the above).
A rainy morning was also perfect for Urban Athletic Club via ClassPass! My friend Kathleen and I hit up Teisha’s 7 a.m. class. Her classes are awesome – so hard and athletic – lots of great drills that complement running and other sports, which makes sense since she’s a former D1 and professional basketball player!
Here I am working on my assisted pull up after class – we did this move as one of the interval stations. My foot is in a band to make it easier to do more reps. 🙂
As for yesterday’s workout, it was all about the running! My friend Karen and I met up for a run and it was so great to see her as always. Our runs together are kind of like therapy or mastermind sessions – so good to talk things out and the miles fly by! <3
We ended up crushing 5.26 miles at a good clip.
We did a little cool down walk on the Capital Crescent trail afterward because we weren’t quite ready to say goodbye yet, and we saw a TON of deer! Cool. This one scared me – I didn’t see it til we were right next to it!
To round out this random post, here’s what I had for lunch yesterday. It’s one of my favorite combos and I recommend you try it immediately if you haven’t yet. Makes a great packed lunch, too!
Just mash canned tuna with half a ripe avocado and a couple squirts of dijon mustard and you have yourself an excellent tuna salad. It’s great with crackers, in a wrap or pita, atop salad, or as a sandwich! I threw mine on sprouted grain bread with some baby kale for a little extra green. Yum! Plus some unpictured carrots and a kiwi on the side.
And now, back to work. Have a fabulous day, my friends!
What’s your favorite sandwich? Mine is definitely tuna – I’ve always loved it, even when I was little! Other tuna salad combos I love: tuna + greek yogurt + dijon mustard, and tuna + hummus. Here’s another variation with some fun additions: healthy tuna salad.
