So much for all the sunshine we were enjoying this weekend. I was awaken early this morning by thunder and rain. It was 4:00am and I found myself not being able to go back to sleep until I made sure my computer and all chargers were unplugged. Does anyone else have those anxieties?
Luckily the rain cleared just after sunrise so that Maddie and I were able to enjoy a nice 3 mile run. (Maddie loved getting muddy in the puddles, I did not.) We followed the run with Workout 1 from the 30 Day Shred and a nice bath (for Maddie, not me 🙂 ).
Breakfast was mouth watering delicious. 🙂
Thanks to this almost empty jar of Naturally Nutty Vanilla Peanut Butter (RIP)
And the assistance of this team of ingredients.
1/2 cup of Rolled Oats
1/2 cup of Milk
A couple of spoonfuls of yogurt
Chia Seeds, Jam, Cinnamon, and Raisins
And refrigerated overnight
This morning I topped the overnight mix with Back to Nature Chocolate Granola and Strawberries
Overnight Oats in a jar is by far my favorite breakfast food. Now I need to purchase another jar of Naturally Nutty Vanilla Peanut Butter to repeat this all over again.
There were some questions in the comments this weekend about Derek’s heritage and I thought it would be a fun topic to bring up.
Derek is 1/2 Honduran on his Mother’s side and a European mix from his Dad.
Honduran + European = Derek
My roots include a little mix of everything. Most notably my great grandparents on my Mom’s side come from Finland (which explains why everyone on her side – including my cousin Andrea! – are all fair skinned and blonde) and my Dad’s Grandparents (Great-Grandparents?) hail from Sweden and Ireland.
Finnish + Swedish + Irish = Meghann
Are you familiar with your heritage? Where did your family originate from?
