Sloppy

I got my butt out of bed and I went running this morning!

And as I came back in the door and checked the weather forecast —> rain, rain, rain – I was really glad that I did it.

3 miles.  No big deal.  But I’m happy it happened.

Despite the cold, dreary weather, I once again found myself wanting a cold breakfast…maybe the sloppy weather outside had me craving a sloppy breakfast…who knows.

Whatever triggered it, yogurt bowl it was!

I love how many clusters can be found in a box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

Clusters are the best – they make me a happy girl.

Into this yogurt bowl went:

I nuked the strawberries so they were nice and warm…such a great contrast with the cold yogurt.  The temperature contrast plus the texture contrast with the crunchy clusters and smooth yogurt worked out really well.

A perfect start to this dreary Tuesday!

I was so glad I didn’t look out the window this morning before high-tailing it out of my apartment to go on a run. So dreary out! But it really makes a difference if you can find a little extra energy from an am workout. More power to ya girl!

I know sometimes it’s better not to know how gross out it is. It totally does make a difference! If it didn’t, I don’t think I could motivate myself!

we had twin mornings. I went for a rainy run and came back raring for a yogurt and cereal bowl ;) It’s a pretty awesome way to get the day started!

Omg.. I made it out this morning too because I’m going to be in the airport tonight. It was brutal, but so glad I got it done. Wish I would’ve had that oatmeal. We were trying to empty the house of groceries so I just had blueberry Eggos! :)

Blueberry eggos don’t sound half bad to me!! My bowl is actually filled with yogurt! :) Glad you got your run in and safe travels tonight!

Hey, 3 miles IS a big deal,lady! Some people can’t (or won’t) even attempt that, forget at the crack of dawn, so good job. :-D

Three miles is a big deal! I can barely run two because of knee problems and would love to be able to run more. :)

I love that you warmed the berries!! That’s such a great idea!
I’ll be trying that next time I make a yogurt bowl like this!

Yeah I wasn’t sure how it would taste at first but it really came out delicious! Let me know how you like it if you try it!

Isn’t Kashi GoLean the best?! It’s so hearty and crunchy – what a good idea to put it on yogurt! Looks like I need to go to the grocery store and pick up a box. I swear, that stuff lasts like 1/2 a day when it’s in the pantry.

Go Lean Crunch clusters are the best! Lately I’m doing a lot of Go Lean bowls with pomegranate and sliced bananas. Breakfast just taste so much better after a work out!
