Is it Friday yet??

Today was my gym day off. I had an absolutely fabulous gym sesh yesterday though. I blasted through my spin class and even did a cool down on the elliptical, followed by some abs. Nice!! But the one thing Ive learned is to let the body rest. I personally like to take 2 days off a week. Its just what works for me and I just try and listen to my body on which days to take off. So today was a rest day for me! I have definitely been a victim of over training and its no fun. So take care of yourselves, its important!!

I had a quick lunch today of some scrambled egg whites, corn tortillas and some kale, cucumbers and tomatos. Super yummy!


I was having one of those super hungry days too, ya know those days where you can eat anything thats not nailed down? yup, that hit me today! So I obliged and made a bowl of cereal too. I kind of have aADD when it comes to cereal and I cant just eat one kind at a time. oh no. I mixed up 5 different kinds in this bowl! Theres some Puffed millet, Puffed Kamut, organic crispy brown rice, Fiber one and some Peanut butter balls sprinkled on top. Ate this with some cold almond milk and it was amazing!


One of the many things I LOVE about reading people's blogs is all the amazing ideas everyone has! Im continuely impressed and I love to learn new things. Purusing around I checked out LighterPortion's blog and saw some great lookin' oats! So I had to make some for dinner. Mine is pretty similar but here what I did:

Savory Oat Bran:

1/3 c. oatbran
1 c. water
1 laughing cow cheese wedge
sprinkle of chili powder
sprinkle of garlic powder

1/4 c. chopped onion
3 c. fresh spinach
4 Tbs. salsa
cilantro
fresh pepper
salt to taste

Easy dinner! All I did was carmelize up my onion in a dry pan and tossed in my spinach. While that is going I put my oatbran, water, cheese wedge, chili powder, garlic powder in a bowl and heated until done. Then I tossed in the onion mixture and stir it up! I topped it off with some salsa, cilantro and some fresh ground pepper.



This was better than I expected. It was warm, creamy and amazingly satisfying. I will definitely be making this again.

Then for dessert I had some chobani yogurt with cereal (Ive been on this cereal kick now for days) and topped it with some pom arils.


And for Austin (my husband) I made a huge crazy mound of banana soft serve with granola and some chocolate and PB chips. Look at that huge pile of banana goodness!


I hope everyone has a great night!!

Also, One FitFoodie is having an AMAZING chocolate/coffee giveaway! Im so excited about it!
