A Big Bite

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 5, 2008

Morning everyone!

Happy Friday once again :D

My morning has been a whirlwind! I got up and drove Eric to the train this morning, thankfully I didn’t get stuck in traffic like last time. Although the round trip is still 35-40 mins total so it takes a big bite out of my morning! I have 7 mins. to write this post actually!

I jumped on the treadmill as soon as I got in the door and pounded out a great, sweaty 3 mile run:

  • 1 min quick warm-up
  • 3 mile run, speed 6.2, incline 5
  • Max heart rate: 172 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 152 bpm (88% of max)
  • Total duration: 36 mins (78% of max)

I showered and got ready and had a huge bowl of a new kind of Spelt cereal called “Healthy Valley Spelt Flakes

They have a great nutritional profile and only 100 calories per cup– which means you can eat LOTS! :)

I have been eating much more earlier in the day now as opposed to the bad habit I was in for a while with eating a lot of calories late in the evening. I find I not only have more energy but I wake up with a big appetite in the morning! It is a nice transition and I hope to stick with it. :)

Ok rush rush rush off to work!!!

Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten about the homemade Larabars and the Britney interview review!

Tonight will be a super awesome Friday post– I am baking over 100 cookies for the office Christmas party and going to try out the Larabars to boot! Stay tuned :D


There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you.

Just thought you’d like to know that I tried your treadmill trick last night at the gym – rather than focusing on the time counting down, every time a new song came on I switched the speed and incline setting in order to focus on something else. I had the best run that I’ve had in a while! Every time I start to stray from healthy lifestyle choices, I am constantly reminded of your blog and my personal goals.


p.s…I read your post late last night about your current job situation and I could not possibly relate more. Keep pursuing your dreams and focus on what is truly important to YOU! (That’s what I’m trying to do – one step at a time. It’s so easy to settle and push the dreams aside, but I’m not going to let that happen and I have a feeling that you won’t either!)

I’m going to have to try that song trick.
Enjoy your weekend!

I’m trying to eat more in the morning too! Eating after dinner is such a hard habit to stop though. I’ve seriously been trying for months and no luck. I think I just need to give myself a little kick and actually do it :)

hi! I LOVE your blog. I also love how you eat spelt products, me too! I have some spelt recipes on my food blog and maybe you’d like them!

Can’t wait for LaraBars!
