Pumpkin Oatmeal

This morning I woke up at 7 am to meet my friend Nicole to go on a run. She told me about the half marathon (which is next week!)and is participating in it, as well. Here is a picture of Nicole and I:

It was at a party a couple of years ago, hence the strange get-up.

We planned on running a good, long run, but I could only make it four miles before my foot started hurting. It was very disappointing because the past couple of days my foot hasn't been hurting at all. The race is coming up and I am hoping that I can just finish at this point. :/

We stopped running early and I went home and decided to cook up some pumpkin oatmeal to make me feel better! I used the recipe from the blog goodLife {eats}. Follow the link to see the recipe (and a really awesome blog, too!):

It was really yummy and I have some leftover for the next couple of days! Yay!
I also had some yogurt with sliced apple, too. Can't get enough of that stuff!

Later, I went to class and ate half a banana as a snack (I had the other half for breakfast with peanut butter before my run). Then, I went to the grocery store! I was in there for about an hour just to get a few things! I think my problem is that I have trouble finding certain things in the grocery store (and some things I wanted I never found, so I have to go back tomorrow). But I have some good ideas for delicious meals this weekend, and I can't wait to post them!

By the time I got home it was four o'clock! I was really hungry. I hate late lunches, because then I am not hungry at dinner time and end up eating dinner late, as well. I had tuna on toast (x2) and some yogurt (and a few mini candies after that). I did really well about not eating any sweets yesterday! I was so proud (they are my weakness, big time).

Dinner rolled around and I had some leftovers: chicken, rice, and baked beans. It was dinner plans for this weekend are MUCH better and better for you, too.

Joe is going to be here soon! :)
