I hope everyones day so far is filled with some positivity and smiles!
I’m determined to make a lot happen today. I have a bunch of things on the agenda, so hopefully my to do list will get a lot checked off!
I usually accomplish things in bursts. I will feel super duper productive one day, so I just do a bunch of things that I’ve been putting off for…well, an extremely ridiculous amount of time.
The day started out how it usually does, breakfast and coffee.
I wanted to change up my oats a bit today, so baked oats were on the agenda. I went with banana coconut baked oatmeal. It was as yummy as it sounds.
I preheated the oven to 375, mixed all the ingredients, and baked for about 20 minutes.
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
The banana got so creamy and sweet while baking in the oven and was super delicious all around. This breakfast definitely hit the spot.
Tuesday will include my list of thoughts and things happening.
1. I am obsessed with Goblet Squats.
Since cutting down on my high intensity workouts, I have been trying to get in some more strength training moves and squats are just about my favourite right now. They make my booty burn, in the best way possible of course.
2. Another thing I totally adore is this Revlon lip stain.
I have a lipstick I wear pretty much daily, but wanted another one just for a little change up, and picked this up on a whim.
Turns out it’s an awesome product. It lasted for such a long time, which is perfect for work and it went on really smooth as well and wasn’t sticky.
My biggest pet peeve is sticky lip gloss. The worst is when it’s windy out and the wind gets all up in your hair and gets stuck in your lip gloss. That’s just not a good look on anyone.
3. Full fat greek yogurt is glorious. So thick and creamy!
Why one earth was I eating fat free for so long. Full fat is so much more filling and satisfying.
Yep, this will be a regular occurrence over here.
4. Roasted vegetables are so dang delicious. I. Can’t. Stop.
Even though it’s still super hot, I won’t stop turning on my oven for the sake of these wonderfully tasty things. Especially when they are cooked in coconut oil and nutritional yeast. Tasted kind of popcorn-y.
5. New Recipes.
How good do these both look?!?
6. Olivia Munn is quickly becoming one of my favourite style icons.
I can’t get enough of these outfits and would very much like the chance to recreate it…at a reasonable cost of course.
Speaking of Olivia Munn, has anyone seen and loved The Newsroom like I have? It is such a good show! A new obsession is growing. Not that I need another one.
7. Self Love.
Do you experience those negative conversations that happen in your mind? Telling you you are “not good enough” or that you “look fat today”.
Don’t allow those thoughts to overcome your attitude for the day! The first thing to do in these situations is be aware that you are thinking negatively. If your mind is playing those nasty tricks on you, replace every negative thought with 3 positive things that you love about yourself.
Trust me, you will feel much better when you accept that these negative thoughts are happening, and take control of the negativity by addressing the thoughts right away.
By writing down three thing you love about you, it will confirm with evidence the things you love about you. You will have this to look back at whenever you feel down. It will increase your confidence and self love.
8. 5 Random Things about me
I’ll leave with this survey I got tagged in on instagram a while ago, and just thought I’d some random tidbits about myself.
