Frozen Steelcut Oats+Her First Half Ironman

OH my goodness it is almost Friday, one more day to go!!!!

I am getting so stoked about the weekend! I love the beach and this will be the first time we go this year:) One of my friends Erin is having a bond fire down there and it’s going to be a blast!

So last night I mentioned a Half Ironman I would be doing this weekend, well it’s kind of true;) A half ironman consists of  a 1.2mile swim, 56mile bike ride and a 13.1mile run. It’s my goal to do one of these competitively one day, but for now I am just doing a mini one for fun! On Saturday morning I am doing a ten mile run and then getting on my bike with some friends and riding 25 miles down to the beach. Then once at the beach I plan on getting my swim on!!! So I shall be doing almost a half marathon, half of 56 mile bike ride, and I am sure there will be less then a mile swim in there!!! Have you ever thought of doing an Ironman, or half Ironman? 

Taking the list I got about energizing foods last night, I complied a yummy jump start breakfast!

I started with some Newman’s Own Organic Dried Cranberries, delish! I love these babies:)

I tried Trader Joe’s Steelcut Oatmeal this morning, They say, “ T.J’s Frozen Steel Cut Oatmeal brings speed and convenience to the previously time-consuming process of cooking steel cut oats.” This is sooo true! I love making Steelcut oats, but when I don’t have the time, these are perfect!

I am riding my bike to Kettlebell class this morning but I am having second thoughts. I had a great 8 hours of sleep and feel ready to hit the gym, but I have so much to get done around here that I might have to skip it. But I know me I will be bummed if I don’t go, decisions, decisions.

Have a Thought Provoking Thursday!!!
