I didn't have a chance to post yesterday, twas quite a busy one, my apologies but I have to share my breakfast from yesterday given that it was NATIONAL OATMEAL DAY!
Oh yeah, this jar was ready
Tah-Dah! What do you think? Is this good for National Oatmeal Day?
- 1/2 c oats
- 1/3 c frozen cherry mix from TJ's
- 1/2 nanner
- Left over Smuckers All Natural PB
- Flax seed
I made a smoothie to bring with me to work using one of my last Amazing Grass Berry Superfood packets
(taken at a red light)
- 1/2 banana
- 3/4 c skim milk
- 1 amazing grass berry superfood (I am getting much more used to the amazing grassy flavor!!)
- frozen berries & mango
I had work today at 5am...this is one of those days that I work back to back shifts meaning yesterday my shift was 11:30-8, then I go home, prepare food for the next day and literally am in bed by 9 or 9:15. I wake up at 4:15 to be at work to open up the gym at 5.
- Many of you asked how I can wake up at 4:15 one day, then 9:00 the next morning? Let me tell you, this was NOT easy when I first started. It messed with my body clock and I was very thrown off. I have been doing this schedule for about 6 months now and I am so used to it, its as if my body knows what to expect so its quite easy! Its crazy how the body can adapt to whatever changes you bring about!
I hopped on the treadmill at 6:30 and ran 4 miles in 36:30! this was great time for me. I tried to do the last mile for speed, keeping it at or above 7.0. I was very happy with this time and it felt awesome! I was chugging along to Basshunter (ahh my techno!) I did some core work and called it a day!
Oats, berries, 1/2 banana, truvia, cinnamon w/ Justins PB drizzled on top... Perfect!
I also enjoyed a Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice coffee!
and This guy! Empire Apple
After work, I stopped at Target on the way home. I wanted to pick up some travel size accessories for COSTA RICA. I am so excited but I always get anxious about travel and how much and what to bring before a trip
**Do any of you get anxious about traveling and always start thinking about what you will bring weeks in advance? What are some staples you always bring with you when you travel?**
I always have with me a book, chapstick, hand lotion, hand sanitzer, bars, nuts, dry cereal (not all of it, but make sure I have snacks), my ipod
Goodies from Target!
- Low Sugar apricot preserves
- All natural Archer Farms Vanilla Cranberry PB
- 2 fage yogurts
- Archer Farms Pumpkin pie yogurt
- Mojo PB & Jelly Dipped bar
- I also got a cute top and of course some travel size goodies, (not pictured)
I also got this!
Yes, you have to turn your head, sorry! Pumpkin Pie Spice diffuser!
It already smells amazing! This was taken in my kitchen, but it is certainly for my bedroom
While I was beginning to think about what to eat I munched on this guy
mmm Carrot. I love big carrots better than baby carrots, They have so much more flavor to them! (IMO)
Are you a baby carrot or large carrot eater?
I also spotted this on the counter, and I was not the one that took the bite from it! (Ahem, mom, Ahem) I believe she took a bite and left it on the counter! Oops!
I decided on a wrap using this French Onion Laughing Cow I have never tried this flavor before!
Turkey, LC, red onion, romaine, hummus, sprouts AMAZING all wrapped up!
I recieved this package from Kathys Krackers
these crackers are
- Made with fresh fruits and vegetables
- Loaded with flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds
- Full of Omega 3's and omega 6's
- No flour
- 100% vegan
Adding flaxseed to your daily diet can be very beneficial in many ways. Flaxseeds may protect against many health problems like cancer and high blood pressure. They are the best plant source of healthy omega-3s. They have bothinsoluble and soluble fiber which helps keep the digestive system working well. They also provide a complete source of protein, meaning that it contains every amino acid that your body can’t make on its own
I got samples of:
Savory-Golden and Brown Flax Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Tomatoes, Peppers, Garlic, Vegetable Protein from Soy Beans, Purified Water, and Parsley.
Apple Cinnamon-Made with Golden and Brown Flax Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Apples, Cinnamon, Sea Salt, and Stevia.
Salsa-Golden and Brown Flax Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Tomatoes, Bell and Jalapeno Peppers, Garlic, Sea Salt, Cumin, and Oregano.
First up were the Savory Crackers

Packed with flax, red pepper flakes, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, parsely. These crackers are thick and I could imagine so many possibilities. These would be amazing crushed up on a salad or dipped in salsa or hummus
Ah, thats better! These were so tasty! they gave the hummus a bit of a kicked up, mexican flavor. Next up I will certainly be crushing these up on my salad. These were delicious! I cannot wait to try the other flavors!
