Biscoff Jar Bounty

Adam had to stay up late again last night to register for something online and I’m just as tired as ever.  It’s possible I didn’t get up until after 9:30 am and only then because Adam called and needed me to do something on his computer.  But then I got up and went for a run.

My goal was to run at least 20 minutes without stopping.  I did it; slowly.  2.4 miles in 24 minutes 30 seconds.  Towards the end I would have been moving more quickly if I was walking, but I kept running.  My workout was basically someone else’s warm-up and it was hard!  There were certainly no negative splits; I did two loops and the second time around took 30 seconds longer than the first.  But I’m glad I did it.  And now my goal for Wednesday is to do it again in 30 seconds less.

Before and after my run I took a few swigs of this Strawberry Powerade Zero.

For breakfast I fueled with something much more exciting.

Another round of oats in a jar, this time hot oatmeal with cottage cheese in a Biscoff Crunchy jar.

In the microwave, I cooked 1/2 cup oats with a pinch of salt and  1/2 cup skim milk and 1/2 cup water.  Then I pulled out half of the cooked oatmeal for tomorrow’s breakfast and stirred 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese into the remaining serving.  Then into the jar it went, along with the last 2-3 Tbsp or so of Crunchy Biscoff.

It was great!  If I’d done stovetop oats with a stirred in banana it would have been even better but I was short on time and I didn’t want banana in tomorrow’s serving anyway.

The rest of my day brings a walk to campus, class, a meeting, and a shift at work until 9pm.

Do you do OIAJ?  What is your favorite kind?
