Old Fashioned Oats

Goal Update

Good morning! I am still catching up on getting back into the swing of things after this business trip like woah. I did unpack and go grocery shopping, but I have been soooo exhausted that today I just turned my alarm off and went back to sleep. I never do that! Snooze, yes, but off? No. So I think I need to go to bed extra early tonight so I can get an extra hour of sleep and hopefully wake up easier tomorrow.

Even though I’m not doing that great with my goals (largely from traveling to OKC for 6 days/5 nights), I wanted to do a check in now we are over a week into June. Here is a list of the goals and my progress on each of them.

1.) Drink more water. Half Check. I was drinking a lot of water during the first few days of June and into my trip, but then during the weekend my water consumption was slacking. I started back up again yesterday and have been getting in my 8+ glasses a day yesterday and today, and plan to stick with it.

2.) Be consistent with exercise. Half Check. I worked out twice during my trip, and then went back to Bikram yesterday. My goal is to get in 5 days of exercise a week if possible, but last week I got in only 2-3 because of traveling. I plan to make up for that starting this week and going forward.

3.) Get back to strength training. Check. I did free weights while in OKC for the first time in a while. My goal is strength training once a week, and I plan to do some more tonight since it’s rainy outside and not ideal for a run/bike ride outdoors.

4.) Go back to Weight Watchers Meetings. I’m giving myself until the end of June to get back to meetings so I still have more time on this one.

5.) Limit alcohol consumptionFail. I drank too much during my trip to OKC and have a reception and bachelorette coming up this week. To make up on this goal, my plan is to not drink any alcohol after Saturday night (the bachelorette) until July 4th/my birthday weekend. This should be totally doable. 🙂

6.) Count WW PointsHalf Check. I was counting points before I left for OKC but not during my trip. I’m back to counting today, even though it’s my least favorite thing to do.

Did you set June goals? How are you doing on them so far? It’s not too late!

Breakfast today was nothing exciting but it was delicious.

Vegan Overnight Oats that had:

  • 1/3 cup oats (1.5 pts)
  • 1/2 cup light soy milk (.5 pts)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (1 pt)
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (1 pt)
  • 1 Raisin Bran Vitatop (1 pt)

I also had an asian pear on the side.

I haven’t had one of these in forever so I was excited when I spotted them at the grocery store yesterday. They are soo good and 0 points! They are kind of a cross between an apple and a pear – sweet but crunchy. I love them!

Have you had any foods lately that you’d forgotten about/haven’t had in a long time?
