I woke up feeling kind of bummed that I ate so much yesterday (and Thursday night) combined with my weight gain this spring – I am not moving in the direction I want to go! But reading all of your comments was so refreshing – so thank you all for the support!
I decided my outlook on the next few weeks is going to be keep it simple. I want to eat more like Polly! I’m going to focus on the usual, Real Food, but in a simple, refreshing form. Smoothies, salads, soups. The spring weather certainly helps! I’ve been so busy that I’ve been slacking on planning fun healthy recipes and I need to get back to planning our meals. I always tell people that a stocked fridge and a healthy meal plan is all it takes to kick start motivation. I need to do this myself!
So this morning I made a simple batch of oatmeal. A half cup portion because yesterday’s oatmeal experiment reminded me how good the OAT part of oatmeal is!
- 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 medium banana
- 1/2 date, 1/2 fig
- Splash vanilla
- 3 crushed jasmine biscotti
- A few slivered almonds
- Spoonful Naturally More PB
Spring Blend. I only drank half of it though – I need WATER!!!!
Today’s agenda is all fun and games with Matt around the house!!!
- Mow the lawn
- Clean the kitchen floor on hands and knees (didn’t happen earlier this week)
- Yard work
- More cleaning???
- A walk/run?
We’ve got one gorgeous day out there and I hope to spend most of it outside

if I was stranded on a deserted island, I would want nothing but cereal, and a spoon

Have a great Friday. JT
