After 30 years of standing at the sidelines of my own life, I am ready to "Pick Me!" first. Follow me on my journey of finding health and happiness in my every day...

I feel like crap… my Dad shared his cold with me! Nice parting gift Dad!!
Since my throat is on fire, and I am cold… a smoothie wouldn’t do!
Oatmeal is my other soft favourite for breakfast, and since the leaves are turning, and and I feel like it is Fall (I know, I know…it isn’t the 23rd yet) I went ahead and had me some PUMPKIN!!
In the Oats I put some canned pumpkin puree, a scoop of chia seeds, and some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. I also added 6 drops of vanilla stevia. I made about 3 servings of oats that I can heat up at a later time
Goal post will be posted later today!
Aquafit last night was cancelled due to weather Which means I better get my butt in gear at home, and bring a DVD with me when we go to the wedding as I am feeling BLAH! After the cancelled aquafit disappointment and procrastinating about packing, I stayed up WAY too late! I needed COFFEE this morning!!
Protein Oats were my eats of choice this morning… I honestly didn’t know what to have. I’m not that hungry, and I didn’t want to wake up my family with the hum of the vitamix…
In the bowl:
- Quaker 100% Whole Grain Oats packet
- 1 scoop Chocolate Protein powder
- 1 t Chia Seeds
- Boiled Water
I put it all in a bowl, and microwaved it for an additional 30 seconds so it had the wonderful souffle like texture. Topped it with some Coco-Loco, and a tiny bit of almond butter and dove right in…. I guess I was hungrier than I thought?
I’m off to the hairdresser today… hopefully for just a trim, and colour. I had a not so great experience there this spring when my Hairdresser was off work for a couple of months, and I used her replacement. I have been putting off an appointment as long as I can, as leopard print dye job is not what I want to be sporting at my cousin’s wedding next week… will keep you updated 😉
For once I planned ahead, and finally made overnight oats in a jar again. I have been thinking of them a lot lately, however, it is usually when it is too late to make them for the meal I want! … like 9am when I am wanting something to eat NOW!
Into the Jar went:
- 1/3 cup Large Oat Flakes
- 2/3 Almond Milk
- 1 scoop Chia Seeds
- Dark Chocolate Almond Butter
I spent the night dreaming about all the wonderful flavours of peanut butter from Peanut Butter and Co. I had bid on a sampler The Big Six at #TGFA… only to be outbid at the last minute I then frantically spent the evening trying to find things to bid on that were still going AND shipping to Canada. I did end up winning an auction in the end. It was an amazing fundraiser, and Janetha G deserves a round of applause!! In the end with her guidance the online community raised $26,432, through auctions and monetary donations.
…and I woke up to this!
YUM! I love Overnight Oats in a Jar! After adding a little Peanut Butter Granola, and a diced apricot, I dived right in!
