I don’t know about you guys but I feel like this week is already chugging along! Of course weekends fly by even faster, but the weeks have just been spinning by! I can not believe its the end of March!
I’m a huge berry freak – but I’m not the kind of berry freak that spends $5 on 4 strawberries. Needless to say I tend to wait until the overpriced beauties that are berries come down in price & come into season. Luckily I saw that they were on sale at the grocery store this week! Summer, is that you?!
- 1/2 c Stonyfield French Vanilla Yogurt
- 1/2 c Oats
- Dash of Soy Milk
- Sprinkling of Chia Seeds
- A few Sale-priced Beauties
- 1 tbsp Peanut Butter
The other day I saw on Twitter that Roni had said at FitBloggin that Oatmeal made by other people truly tastes better than oatmeal you make yourself – isn’t that the truth! When I was on the cruise I had the most simple oatmeal that contained oats, raisins, brown sugar, & peanut butter. It was the best oatmeal I have ever have.
I thought that maybe it was the Peanut Butter component since I usually stick to Almond Butter so I’ve been mixing it up. I do think that I prefer my oats with PB & without bananas (sorry guys!) but I still haven’t replicated my beloved Cruise Oats!
What is your tried and true oatmeal combo? Do you remember the best bowl you’ve ever had the pleasure of eating?
At work I snacked on a Pink Lady and failed to open my Stats book to start some homework.
Instead of Stats I studied these:
Guilty as charged! I am a huge magazine fanatic. Magazines are my guilty pleasure.
I currently am the proud subscriber of:
- Women’s Health
- Real Simple
- Cooking Light
- Eating Well
- Yoga Journal
And I’m sure I forgot one!
What magazines do you subscribe to?
When I got home I was starving for lunch. I went with some leftover Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
With a piece of wheat with some melted cheese on top
After lunch the dogs and I embarked on our walk. The dogs had a blast sniffing and trotting along while I played phone tag with my mom. I love to use walks as opportunities to get things done – usually I use them as my phone talking time. I’m not one to just sit and talk on the phone I’m always doing something else!
Since I work almost every night of the week until 8 I usually pre-photograph my meals for your viewing pleasure. That was definitely the case last night especially since I felt bad about eating my soup out of tupperware!
A turkey, romaine, & mayo sandwich on 7 grain with 2 carrots & a plum (which I didn’t end up eating!).
To me turkey, lettuce, and mayo is the ultimate sandwich combo – it reminds me of my childhood!
After work I headed to my yoga where we tried an awesome move. I introduce you to Double Downward Dog.
I did try to convince Matt to run out in the woods with me so I could take a photo but he was not having it. So I stole this off of Google Images. Neat, right?
After yoga I headed home to 1/2 a c of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. In a measuring cup.
Obviously I have not done dishes in days! The rest of my day includes:
- Taking the dogs for a stroll
- Mailing some things
- Charging my dead phone
- Pack my clothes for Body Pump
- Eat a Girl Scout Cookie
This is literally what I have written down for this afternoon’s To-Do List! Haha!
Help End Childhood Obesity
As someone who was an obese child (and adult) I can now look back and honestly say that more needs to be done in order to help prevent kids and future adults from having problems with food and their weight. I am a huge supporter of having healthier lunches in the school systems and so is Kelly. Please visit her website and take 30 seconds to send an email (its automatically generated & you just type in your email & state) to your local government officials. Something so simple can really make a difference!
