Good morning! hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday. My morning actually started last night when I started making the infamous “overnight oats”!! Was my first time, so I was excited to see the results! Started off with some Scottish Oatmeal:
And then added an equal portion of skim milk, and a dollop of my beloved greek yogz.
some yummy blueberries:
some Pumpkin Butter (amaziiiiing), and some brown sugar:
Finished it off with half a mashed banana:
Mixed this bad boy up, and put it in the fridge. Night night oats!
Woke up at CRACK THIRTY this morning to teach spin and could barely manage to open the ole eyelids:
Somehow managed to make it to The Wellness Center and taught using Monday night’s CD. Really diggin’ that one, it got me nice and awake, and a bit sweaty.
The nice thing about now having two classes at The Wellness Center is the fact that I get a free membership. They have an amazing aquatics center, so this morning after class I took full advantage and did some laps in the pool….chilled in the hot tub, and then roasted to death in the Sauna. I always forget how much those things make you sweat, it is intense!
As I was leaving Johnson City I knew I was low on groceries, so I went to the place that truly warms my heart:
Earth Fare, aka Earth Fizzle, or Earth Fizzy. 😉 I’m such a gangsta. (contain your laughter.)
I swear I could, and do, spend hours roaming around in this place. Its so much more than a shopping trip to me. I am literally like a kid in a candy store. My favorite part is probably the “bar” aisle, look at it’s massiveness:
It’s so hard to choose, but there are SO many options that you can always try something new. Which is nice. Picked up two Luna Cookies – Chocolate Mint , among some other little pieces of joy! 🙂
Also…my new favorite part of Wednesdays:
Yummmmm, can’t wait for lunch now! Check out the new re-usable bags at Earth Fizzy, I love:
And the rest of the loot for the day:
I had been thinking about veggie sticks all week, thanks to Monica….so I grabbed those up quick! Also, they finally have my beloved canned pumpkin back!!! I have been going through some major pumpkin withdrawals. Got a huge bran muffin, and some mini spelt cookies from the bakery. Cannot wait to munch on those, along with everything else!
YAY for having groceries. Also, when I got home I had this beauty smiling at me…nice and chilled from it’s overnight stay in the fridge:
AMAZING. I am definitely adding this variation on oats to the breakfast list. Here was a breakdown of the recipe:
Kitchen Sink -Overnight Oats
- 1/4 Cup Oatmeal (I used Scottish)
- 1/4 Cup Skim Milk
- 1 TBSP Greek Yogurt
- Handful of Blueberries (to taste)
- 1/2 TBSP Pumpkin Butter
- Sprinkle of Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Mashed Banana
Combine everything, and refrigerate overnight!
Well, I feel pretty accomplished for 10:00am, and on that note….off to face the world again. Adios bloggies, catch you later for lunch and dinner! 😉

Are you a rebel when it comes to food and trying new things, or do you stick with what you know? Also, I would like to know what your idea of a “splurge meal” is…and why?
