Zombie Friday

Today’s sign of the apocalypse is brought to you by Running on Peanut Butter. Said zombie is me. Watch out, I bite.

Remember back in middle school and high school when you would stay up for hours just talking with someone, completely losing track of time? I remember back in high school I stayed up until 3 am talking with my cousin’s teammate. Back then, I could get away with sleeping through class the next day, with the occasional head snap to wake me up.

As an adult with a career, I can’t get away with it, but I’m honestly not complaining. Last night I crawled into bed around 9 and read for about 20 minutes before shutting the lights out. I was exhausted but I still goofed around on Facebook from my phone. Things went from boring to fun and before I knew it, 12:30 came around and I had to pull the “adult card” and get some rest. I love the unexpected.

I paid for it on my run this morning, in fact, I probably ran like a zombie too; arms out, red eyes and foaming at the mouth. I should have run outside during the sunrise, that would have freaked a few neighbors out.  Aside from a dismal run, I did get some great strength exercises in and also completed the 1-2-3 Ab Workout again. Love that sucker!

Morning Workout

  • 3 mile zombie run
  • 4 sets of 15 stair push-ups
  • 1-2-3 Ab Workout
  • 2 sets of 20 rock climbers
  • 2 sets of 20 air squats
  • Stretching

My pants are hugging my curves in great ways today.

My appetite is still raging today, and I had to face plant into my Raspberry Mango Overnight Oats earlier than normal. Feed the beast. I actually ate roughly half of my oats and will dig into the rest in about an hour or so.

The Evolution of Overnight Oats.. So Many Chia Seeds!

The thing I love about the overnight oats is that there’s a lot there, and it fills me up quickly so I basically get to enjoy 2 breakfasts for the price of 1. For a girl who loves to eat, I can’t complain about that one bit! I’ve realized all week I’ve been on my overnight oats kick and I’m thinking it will be my work week breakfast for quite a bit. Stick to my ribs oatmeal!

It seems like eternity since I said it last week, but happy Friday… FINALLY!

Peanut Buttery Pumpkin Muffin Goodness

The lovely way my body works is that it doesn’t need a lot of food throughout the day, or it needs a shit ton. Yesterday, I made it until 6 with only my overnight oats and veggie burger scramble. Today, I ate all of my meals and also snacked on my coworkers. Jen’s fingers tasted the best, especially when dipped in salsa.

Ok, I’m kidding. Well, not about the never-ending appetite. By the time work was over, I was light-headed from hunger, even though I literally just ate everything in sight. I sucked it up and hit the gym with Jen, where she went to do Zumba and I hit the cardio. It felt amazing to run, and I think the fact that I let me legs rest all day factored in on that. I went for 2.2 miles, bringing my total mileage of the day to 5.5. I could have kept going but I wanted to get a little different cardio in, in the form of the elliptical.

I dred the elliptical, especially when I get stuck on one that’s not in front of a TV. I can only pass time on that without poking my eyeballs out if I’m watching a show I some-what enjoy. Tonight, I was screwed, and only stayed on it for 15 minutes. Plus, I saw a guy I’m supposed to go on a date with tomorrow night while I was on it and I really didn’t want him to notice me, especially since I took a nice chunk out of my forehead right above my eyebrow.

I hit the ladies’ gym after for 3 sets of 13 deadlifts before deeming myself too sweaty and stanky and leaving. Did I mention how ravenous I was all day? My stomach was speaking to me and saying awful things. When I got home there was nothing to eat, so I warmed up a 2-ingredient pumpkin muffin, squeezed a single serving of Barney’s Almond Butter on top, and devoured that sucker. WOW. WOOOOOOOOW! Go do that right now.

After the gym and a quick protein snack, I went to the library to return a book I couldn’t get into and to pick up the one that was just delivered, The Secret Holocaust Diaries.”

The Holocaust, as awful as it was, it’s one of my favorite events to read about and continually learn about. Whenever there is a history show on TV about it,  you can bet I’ll have it on my DVR. I took a Holocaust class in high school and it was hands down the best class I’ve ever taken. I’m excited to read this and am just about to go snuggle in bed and begin my new book!
