Hi everyone! Good afternoon.
Friday is so closeeee!
I wanted to share a yummy recipe that I had yesterday morning and it involves OATS.
I love, love, love overnight oats and when I have the opportunity to make them (and I feel like eating them) I will.
These were so creamy and the texture was perfect, that I had to share!
Coconut Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2/3 cup or more of almond milk
- 2 big spoonful’s of nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract
- Dash of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 tsp. of stevia or truvia or sweetener of choice
Directions: Mix all the ingredients together in a large enough bowl. Put plastic wrap over the bowl and store in refrigerator till the morning!
When you get it back out after overnight, put a splash more of almond milk, your favorite nut butter, and coconut flakes (optional)
They taste much better than they look. I promise.
Tuesday night, as I said, I ran 4.09 miles for Boston.
And if you saw my instagram pic (so cheesy), you saw I was giving/getting some fist pumps for those who went running for Boston!
I ran it with my dad and his running buddy, Edward (who is very fast)
He took pictures of us after we were done, but I have yet to receive the pics via email…so, I don’t know.
We saw a few runners out there running as well that I’ve never seen before, so we assumed they were motivated to #runforboston!
Last night, I went to the Trak Shak running/praying for Boston event with my dad.
I opted to do the 3 miler instead of the 5 miler just because my foot had a blister, I was tired, and it was HOT and HUMID out there. So 3 miles it was! I ran it pretty hard though, because to me, “If you go short, go hard” or it’s a complete waste of time…unless you’re recovering from a race, that’s a different story. (In my mind thinking that way just keeps me motivated, don’t judge )
There’s me with Jamie, who was stopped 1/2 a mile before the finish line. Can you imagine running all those miles, putting in all that work so you can cross that finish line, and then something horrible like that happens?
Down below is a picture of the Alabama Boston maraonthers who could make it last night.
Luckily, we had no one hurt from the bombing. A huge blessing.
And thank you Suman for all your wonderful pictures from mRuns.com
There’s the blood drive for those who wanted to donate blood.
And that’s about it…I’m going to head out for another run later (6X800m repeats, ‘gasp’) !!!!
I hope everyone is doing well!
- Have you ran for Boston yet?
- Do you go to running events/get togethers?
- From a scale of 1-10…tell me how much you like overnight oats?
