Heyyyy, Macaroon-ah.

*which is obviously being sing to the tune of Macarena, but I digress.*

Good afternoon bloggies!  How is Tuesday treating you?!

My breakfast this morning got started last night, as I took a lonely and almost empty jar of Trader Joe’s Almond Butter…

And added an arsenal of goodies to create some pretty bangin’ Overnight Oats In A Jar.

Star ingredient being of course chocolate themed:

The oats consisted of:

  • 1/2 Cup Oats
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 TBSP Polaner Peach Jam
  • 2 TBSP Chocolate Goji Lovin’ ūüėČ
  • Dollop -o- Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Diced Red Pear
  • 2 TBSP Chia Seeds

Tucked those bad boys in and kissed them goodnight.

Through the magic of blog world (mind blowing, isn’t it?!) I fast forward to the morning, and the oats that were waiting to be shoveled into my face:

Nothin’ like some oat goodness on the road.

Waste not want not…do I know how to clean a jar of nut butter, or what?!?!

Breakfast, check.

Headed for my KidFit class which was hilarious. ¬†We played “Musical Chairs” with the volume turned up. ¬†They had to do jumping jacks/crazy dances as they jogged around the chairs. ¬†It was high-larious.

Headed right to the YMCA after KidFit to sub a STEP class.  Considering I have no idea how to teach Step, they were subjected to weights/cardio/spin.  It was a very random, yet magnificent combo which produced massive groans/sweat.  Love it!  Also got to escape to Targizzle briefly with this cutie:

We “Y”……do you?!?!

Once it was finally time to briefly visit the casa, I was inspired by Ashlei to attempt a second round at my macaroons.  Last time I made them they were a bit dry, so I moistened it up a bit by adding an extra egg white, some Almond Milk, and RAW HONEY to the mixture.  This Raw Honey is seriously YAH-mazing.

Put those babies in the oven…

And ta-daaaaa!

I am being good, and taking them to work to have everyone taste test! ¬†There may have been a couple that didn’t make it to the container. ¬†They….um…..fell on the floor??? ¬†Yes, that’s it….they totally fell on the floor. ¬†ūüėČ

Lunch was pretty epic too.  Consisted of left over Thai (veggie fried rice) and steamed broccoli goodness, all heated up:

It Wok’d my world. ¬†(ba dum chiiiiiii)

Now it’s time for work!

Random Tyler fact:

I have been jamming this joint DOWN all day today belting this song out at the top of my lungs:

So my question is:

What is your favorite song/thing to do/sing when you are home alone?!?

PS…….want free chocolate? ¬†Thought so. ¬†Click here.
