So I woke up this morning and made some oatmeal, and I loved it!!!!  I’m so excited to say that I actually had oatmeal and really enjoyed it.  I put a good amount of stuff in it and I think it made all the difference.   Thanks for all the great suggestions, I’ll be sure to pick up some other mix-ins on my weekly shopping trip tomorrow!

In my oats I had cinnamon, vanilla extract, 1/2 a banana, blueberries and of course pb.

I think the difference is I put a full 2 tbsp of pb in it where as before I used tbsp.  Definitely a big difference.

Here’s proof I ate every morsel.

How appropriate that at the bottom there was a heart.  I know why you all love it so much know this kept me full for hours!  Can’t wait to keep trying oatmeal new ways.  The cinnamon and vanilla made it taste almost like French toast, and the blueberries were perfect in there.  I ❤ oatmeal!

I went to the gym this afternoon and had a great sweaty session.  I love the weekends the gym is always so empty, wish it was like that on the weeknights.  I’m hoping once it starts getting warmer out I’ll be able to hit the gym or go for runs in the morning.  I just can’t drag myself out of bed when it’s so cold.  I’m envious of those of you who can.

After the gym we hit up Panera.  I had the infamous “You Pick Two.”  I got the Mediterranean veggie sandwich, on whole wheat bread (instead of the tomato basil bread.  I got it without the hummus so I’m sure the 1/2 portion was a little lighter then what the nutrition facts show.  I also got the Low Fat Chicken Tortilla soup.  It was absolutely delicious I was close to licking the bowl.  I didn’t know it came with tortilla strips, they didn’t add much flavor to the soup and I would probably get it without next time.

I saved the whole wheat baguette for later.

My orginal plan for dinner was to make Snobby Joe’s for the first time.  I was dying to try this.  Unfortunately my sister is back in the hospital, this time with pneumonia.  So I wanted to eat something quick so I could get down to the hospital.  I had the remaining 3 meatballs on the baguette  (and one on the side) with 3/4’s of an ounce mozzarella cheese.

I also had a salad with romaine lettuce, a mini green bell pepper, some onion, and light balsamic dressing.

A yummy quick dinner, I hope I get to have the Snobby Joe’s soon though.

Well I’m off to visit my little sister in the hospital, she’ll be spending the night and hopefully home sometime tomorrow.  I hope she gets better quickly, last time she had pneumonia she was in the hospital for a week.  I would be so upset if she had to stay that long again.  Please keep my sister in your thoughts and wish her a speedy recovery, I know she could use some positive energy right now.  And you are all some of the most positive and supportive people I know!
