Yep, I'm Still Here

Monday, May 30, 2011

Eeek! It's been so long since I've posted anything of substance! School kind of does that to me. :) Let's see, what have I been up to? I've finished my first year of radiology tech school (YAY!) and I've started my summer semester of clinicals. I took a kayaking class! It's was a BLASTY-blast! I'm in lurve! :) I don't have a kayak, but I do plan on using my newly acquired skillz several times this summer, even if it's mostly at the pool. :) I rode my mom's bike to work a couple of times (5.62 miles one way), but it's been rainy and cold since then, so I haven't done it any more times than that. I got my own bike! Totally stoked about that! AND I have my own treadmill now! Woohoo! I used it several times when I first got it, but exercising kind of fell by the wayside during finals. I DEF need to pick it back up tho.

Anywayz....enuff about me! Let's get on to even more exciting stuff: OATMEAL! Yep, I just said oatmeal. LOL I have never been a fan of oatmeal, well, any breakfast food for that matter. I would rather eat dinner for breakfast. I do make a point to eat breakfast now, because skipping meals slows your metabolism, but that doesn't mean I like it. ;) I think that's why my "regular" breakfast changes so often. It used to be smoothies, then it was brown rice cereal & almond milk, then leftovers, and now it's oatmeal. But not just any oatmeal. Almond butter chocolate oatmeal. Let the breakfast feasting begin!

ABC Oatmeal

Ingredients:

2 handfuls oatmeal
1-2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
Splash of almond milk
1 Tbsp. almond butter

Directions:

Put the first three ingredients in a glass bowl. Mix. Put the last ingredient on top & microwave for 1 minute. Stir thoroughly and enjoy!

After stirring...look at that deliciousness! :)

Note: I don't use too much almond milk because I like my oatmeal chewy. Feel free to add more as desired. And a little chocolate goes a LOOONG way. Beware! :)

I am so excited for this summer!!! (If it ever gets here...LOL) There's so many things I want to do and try and it's just so exciting! Hopefully I get to do some of it so that I can write about it here. :) And I'll leave you with a randomness for the day: Yesterday was my first time mowing the lawn with gloves on. Yep, it was THAT cold and rainy! :)
