Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Overnight oatbran virgin

Unfortunately I didn’t get to the gym this morning and I used the old excuse, “I’ll start fresh on 2010.” The good news is that I finally got around to making overnight oat(bran). Not like it’s difficult to make but it’s more about remembering to do it. Two nights ago I stuffed 1/3 cup oat bran, 1 cup almond milk, cinnamon, and a banana in an almost empty peanut butter jar. As mentioned before, I didn’t eat them yesterday so they’ve been sitting in the fridge for three days now. I’m a little nervous to try it but I’m excited at the same time. I always wondered how it was possible that the PB jar looked so filled but it’s possible. Add the cut bananas and it fills right up.

I am feeling a little anxious about all the food we are planning to eat tonight so I packed a pretty healthy lunch:spaghetti squash, arugula, baked tofu and 1 tbsp olive oil.  If I were doing weight watchers I’d be at 12 points, including my coffee from this morning. My dinner will definitely be 10,000 points but the website says it all organic so I got that going for me. Len’s picking me up at five and we’re headed north about an hour. Should be a total shit show due to the weather and the traffic. I am packing along my computer to post tonight but I cannot promise. It’s always a little bit awkward busting out the computer and the camera wires at someone elses house. Happy New Year everyone.

  1. Have fun tonight! Enjoy your food and don’t worry about the points – how often do you get to enjoy an all organic, catered meal with good friends? 🙂

  6. I used that excuse this morning, too. Plus my hubby and father-in-law were in line for the treadmill before me. Illinois is about FREEEEEEEEEZING, there is no way I was going outside! Tomorrow’s the day to start fresh, right? : ) Happy New Year!
