I use to never really like oatmeal but the past week or two I have been obsessing over it! I was feeling sick last week and all I wanted was oatmeal for some really weird reason so I made some at home and every since then, I have been craving this particular recipe I make so I wanted to share it with you. Here are the ingredients that I used (I did use a tiny bit of cinnamon that I forgot to include in the picture)
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of vanilla almond milk unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 whole banana
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- A little dash of cinnamon
- I start off by putting the oatmeal and almond milk (or any milk of your choice) into a small pot and turn on the stove and let it get to boiling point. While I wait I stir it quite frequently.
- Once it starts to bubble/boil, I turn the heat down to low and add half of my peanut butter and half of the honey into the pot and keep stirring until I reach my desired texture.
- I then pour it in a bowl and add my bananas, the rest of my peanut butter and honey and top it off with a bit of cinnamon.
Last week I mentioned how I wanted to get into starting a new healthy habit which was to try and get 10,000 steps a day and go to the gym. Well week one is now done and I am proud of myself… I did Reach 10,000 steps everyday except for the weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Usually when I would start a habit or diet, the second I failed at something I stopped doing everything all together… This time around I kept telling myself that it’s OK that I didn’t get to finish my steps and that it’s OK to take a break for a day or two and start back up again the next day! I didn’t really weigh myself so I’m not sure if I have lost any weight but I am going to weigh myself tomorrow morning and hopefully keep track.
I have been enjoying going to the gym, it’s been a bit hard since I haven’t been to a gym in months maybe even a year but I’m excited! Here is my fitbit step tracker for the past week (obviously ignore the numbers for today since it’s barely noon here and I haven’t finished for today!
Every year I always make the same new year resolution/goal and that is to lose weight. Obviously like many others I lose my motivation after a few weeks and regain it at the end of the year. I want to lose weight so bad, idealy I would like to lose minimum of 60 pounds.
Before I would just start a diet and it would only last maybe 2 days to a week, this time around I want to start a new habit and slowly change my lifestyle for the better. Starting today I want to drink at least 100 oz of water and take 10,000 steps a day! I don’t drink nearly as much water as I should, even 100 oz is not enough for me since technically I would need to drink half of mg body weight on oz which would be 140 oz a day but since I’m not use to drinking that much, I will start with drinking 100 oz then add more in the days or weeks to come. Same with my steps, I don’t do 10,000 steps a day unless it’s a crazy busy day, so I will be going to the gym after work go make sure I gdt those steps in and I will share them here every Wednesday along with an update on how I am doing with this new habit of mine.
