I Eat the Same Thing

The ice cream eating streak continues. My son got his tonsils out yesterday and is milking this ice cream thing for all it’s worth (pun intended). He’s probably had about ten bowls since yesterday, not to mention jello and pudding. He’s also eating tons of mac and cheese. I guess tonsil surgery gives you an appetite.


I woke up early this morning to squeeze in a little cardio time at the gym before running a few errands. Before heading to the gym, I had some overnight oats for breakfast. And I had legit overnight oats this time because I made them last night instead of thirty minutes before I eat them.

This time, though, I poured a little bit of Bear Naked cereal on top. What a difference the crunch makes! These oats were way better with the crunchy cereal. I even made sure to buy another box. Mostly so I can pour way more cereal on top.


  • 2.3 miles treadmill
  • 15 minutes stationary bike
  • 10 minutes stretching

Just a quick workout today. After my workout I had an apple and a CoolFuel bar (yes, I steal these from my kids – what? They’re good). And I know that you’ve probably missed pictures of me eating in my car, so I figured that I better include one.

After the gym, I went to Target to pick up a few little Christmas presents and get a sleeping bag for my son. He’s going to his first sleepover party! Oh my gosh – I’m so nervous. I know it’s crazy but he’s only slept over with family members before. Now, he’s going to a hotel swimming party. What? Is this what 10 year olds do? What happened to McDonald’s birthday parties.

My younger son is a little jealous that his big brother is going to a party without him, so I picked up this gingerbread house kit (50% off!) for us to make while he’s gone.

Thankfully, I don’t like gingerbread, but I can’t guarantee that there will be any gum drops left to put on the house once I get ahold of them.


I had the same exact thing for lunch today that I had yesterday. A bagelwich and Southwest salad. I tend to eat the same thing over and over and over…Maybe I should have called my blog Run & Play instead – that way you wouldn’t you have to look at the same three foods over and over again. Pancakes, bagelwich, oatmeal. Repeat.

Whatever – it was good. I’ll probably eat it tomorrow too.

This weekend will be pretty laid back since my son is still recovering from his surgery. But next week will be busy with school parties, last-minute Christmas shopping, and doctor appointments.

Have you finished Christmas shopping yet?
