The Good Old Hockey Game

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 1, 2010

Such a fabulous 17 day stretch of the Olympics!

Canada is not typically a country associated with a great deal of overt patriotism, but these winter games really brought the country together in a way that we never have before. I couldn’t be more proud of my country and for all of the amazing athletes in every country around the world!

I had a great snack after the 1st period of the hockey game yesterday. I was hungry all day from that run outside in Toronto! There is something about fresh air that always makes me more hungry than usual.

I needed to get out my frustrations with some crunch!

I forgot to mention yesterday that I had no knee pain after my run (I didn’t wear my knee sleeves). I am definitely going to keep up the strength training as my legs feel so much stronger than they did last year. Hopefully with the strength training I can eliminate, or at least reduce, the need for my knee sleeves. :)

What a hockey game!!!!!

I squeezed Eric’s hand the whole game. I think I almost broke his finger when USA tied it up with 25 seconds left! Canada shed a single tear.

It was such a close game and really could have gone either way. I thought both Canada and USA played with every ounce in them. We really couldn’t have asked for a more exciting gold medal game. Kudos to all the players for giving their blood, sweat, and tears!

Of course, I had to celebrate our athletes this morning with a festive bowl of oats…

Oh Canada Oats

So fun!

I’m so sad the Olympics are over!!! They made winter so much brighter, didn’t they?

Size Healthy Around the Blog World:

Coming up tomorrow: March Madness at Glo Bakery! I was hoping to announce the exciting variety pack today, but I am integrating Fedex into our shopping cart and it is proving to be very difficult to code. We are switching over to Fedex as they are more reliable and faster. Also, if you ship your package to a non-residential address (e.g., to your workplace), you will save $2.50 on your shipping costs.

Enjoy your MARCH 1st!

Angela,

Your oats are adorable and probably darn tasty, but not as tasty as the GloBars my fiance surprised me with :) woot, woot. I loved the feeling of pulling one out of my purse at an all-day meeting this past Sat as the other people inhaled the bagels. Just wanted to share my love!

What type of Manitoba Hemp Protein Powder do you use?! I bought one last night but Whole Foods had several different types. I put it in some oatmeal this morning and wasn’t really happy with the results! Haha! The one I bought is Hemp Protein & Fiber powder. I’m sure it’ll be fine in Green Monsters though!!

Love your oats and also your blog.
I came up with a similar idea, independently. Oatmeal mixed with greek yogurt and topped with maple syrup – My “Ode to the 2010 Olympics” oats. Your dish was prettier though! Great minds think alike!
Keep on glo-ing Angela!!! Love your recipes and attitude!
