Whooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooo!

Up at 5 this AM for a chilling hour-long cycle class. I didn’t push it too hard and chatted too much with my cycle friend Jim. The music was fun and we ended with Phantom of the Opera!

Of course we had to do themed oats this morning.

My bowl was:

  • 1/3 cup oats, milk, water
  • 1/2 large banana
  • Salt, vanilla
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin (heated in my bowl)
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 cup cottage cheese (stirred in)
  • 1/2 tbsp flax
  • Chocolate eyes
  • Raisin mouth
  • TJ’s fiber worms for brows


He had craisins, worms and almonds –


I added a spoonful of PB on the side – plus coffee!


I’m off to Chemistry (plus an hour of annoying driving) and then I am having my best friend from my youth, Becca, and her daughter Zora for lunch!!

Heather at Hangrypants reminds us to enter her ProBar contest! (But I discourage you from entering so my chances of winning are higher 👿 )

Lastly, it appears that my email address sent out some spam email about Burt’s Bees. Have any of you gotten any random emails from “me” ????

Hope your day is full of tricks and treats!!

Hi Kath! I’m new to your blog and really enjoying it. We live in Austin, TX…a great place for living healthy. I have two comments this morning…I also went to a spin class this morning that ended with Phantom of the Opera! So fun! And, I also had trouble on a recent run with my ear phones falling out! So frustrating! What’s up with that!

Hey Kath, if you don’t want this posted on your blog, feel free to delete, but I just wanted to alert you and all the readers on your blog… I will be holding a contest on my blog to raffle of a sample package of ZAP products to one lucky winner on Saturday, November 1st. The sample package will include 2 jars of ZAP peanut butter and an assortment of their energy bars. Spread the word!!


I’m newer to the blogging scene and know you have a great fan base so I wanted to post that here. :)

Love the oatmeal faces!!


43 Fancy October 31, 2008 at 12:15 pm

About how many ounces of coffee would you say you drink each day? I know you only have 1-2 cups with breakfast…but how many total ounces would you say that is? I’m trying to cut back on how much coffee I drink each day so I would love to use your intake as a guideline. Thanks Kath! Happy Halloween!


44 Toni J. October 31, 2008 at 12:39 pm

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Happy Halloween Kath!!


45 justjen October 31, 2008 at 12:49 pm

Can I tell you happy I am that you put chocolate in your breakfast? (And sometimes cake!) And you still look great! There’s hope for all of us…


46 Lisa October 31, 2008 at 12:56 pm

haha how cute!


47 Kath October 31, 2008 at 3:01 pm

Thanks for all the fun comments guys!

Cat ,
We all love contests – thanks for sharing!

Fancy ,
I’d say about 8-10 oz? I’m trying to cut back too though and trying to alternate tea days with coffee days.



48 Eliza October 31, 2008 at 3:14 pm

I just spit out the water I was drinking I laughed so hard at the oats.

greatest couple ever


49 Megan October 31, 2008 at 4:54 pm

50 Natalie November 1, 2008 at 2:44 am
