day 22

I got to sleep in this morning, our kids have no school...good and bad! Good for the sleeping in, bad for not a lot to do..So we are still in our jammies, the kids are playing play dough, as I am listening to them bicker..good times. Not to mention the mess that I get to vaccuum up when they are done! lol...

So I confessed my cheating last night to step on the scale and weigh 113.4...losing 6 ounces!! What is up with that? I follow it to a T and lose only 2 ounces, then cheat and lose more..go figure? I will also add, that since my body has been eating so "clean" lately, that cheeseburger sent me running to bathroom, before practice was even over..not good! Oh and tomorrow mark the last  days of the drops..and of course it is going on over the weekend, the hardest time for us!

So here is my proof of bad habit lately....

Ok, it is wonderfully delish! Here is how to make it..super easy and way good!

4 C rolled oats
2C unsweetend coconut ( I had to use sweetened, I couldn't find the other)
2C almonds
1C cashews
3/4 C Olive Oil
1/2 C Honey
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Kosher salt

Mix all together and spread out over baking sheet, bake at 350* for 20-30 minutes.

You can add anything you like after it bakes and cools a bit...I added Reeses peanut butter chips..I know not so healthy! But it is really good! I also baked mine for a full 30 minutes, I would not next time, it got a little dark around the edges.

You can eat it plain, in yogurt, like cereal, even on ice cream!!LOL... You can add, dried fruit, raisins, pretzels, chocolate or yogurt covered raisins..really the possibilities are endless! Also for mine, I swithched the amounts on the nuts, only because we like cashews better than almonds.. Enjoy it!!

The kids have a home game tomorrow at 11, and Bella is cheering for Scottys team, so that is a plus, we get it all done in one shot. Bella has Cheer Competition on October 30...Then Scotty's team has a "Bowl Game" here, which is called the Turkey Bowl, and that is November 5th (Scotty's birthday) so that will be fun..I will get cupcakes for the team that day. It will be busy up until we move back..crazy busy, but I will take evrey minute of it..with a BIG SMILE!!

Happy Friday!

  1. That recipe looks great, and... have you shared that you are for sure moving back? :) Did I miss it? That is exciting. And... maybe you could maintain your weight by just eating "clean" 5 out of the 7 days. I struggle like you, on weekends. Keep up the good work.
