First, I have another blog give away to remind you of!
Sweet and Fit is having a customizable blondies give away!
Yesterday after dinner, I got together with some friends to watch a movie…little did I know that it would be Marley and Me. I have been avoiding this movie since it first came out!! You see, we lost our oldest golden retriever (my very first dog) , Mandy, 5 months ago on Halloween. I just knew I would be a blubbering mess and get all worked up while watching this movie…and I did. I didn’t just want to up and leave my friends and they all wanted to see it, so I just stayed and suffered through it. It really is a cute movie and I loved all of it besides the end…but so much of it was reminding me of her, especially the ending. I thought I was fine once the movie was over but when I got home, I broke down. I was just so attached to her (and Jaci) and miss having her here to make me smile. The first thing I did when I got home was go give Jaci a big hug…and then I felt much better. 🙂
Now, I will get to my breakfast…a repeat from yesterday:
Some of you were asking how to make these so here is how I do it:
The night before, mix together the following:
- 1/2 cup oats
- scoop of protein powder (or not, if you don’t want to)
- 1/2 mashed banana (or applesauce)
- lots of cinnamon
- 2-3 tablespoons of milk or water
Once you mix this together, put it in fridge overnight. The next morning, you can top it with whatever you like. I usually top mine with peanut butter/almond butter. You can also put fruit on top, chocolate chips, etc. The less milk/water you use, the harder (more cookie-like) it will be.
This is great when you need a fast breakfast because all you have to do it pull it out of the fridge in the morning. Plus, it is amazingly tasty!
For lunch at school, I decided to deviate from my usual PB & J and get the chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes lunch they were serving. This did NOT keep me full for very long and I was starving by the time I got home!
So I made a yummy snack:
Stonyfield plain yogurt with a Kashi dark chocolate coconut fruit and grain bar. Heaven. The sweetness of the bar and natural-ness of the yogurt make a perfect match!
Now I am going to throw together a quickie dinner and then I am off to go babysit for the night…which means I will probably have a lot of down time to read your blogs! Yay!
What are your plans for tonight?
