16 layers of Jell-o and My breakfast everyday.


Good morning! Happy Sunday!

My breakfast this WHOLE week has been a oatmeal frenzy! I’m a huge fan of oatmeal because it is SO versatile. You can throw anything in the mix and fill satisfied for the entire morning!


Eating breakfast is SO important! You should eat your breakfast within a half hour of waking up to ensure a revved metabolism that is essential to burn fat and not to mention feel energized and ready for whatever your day may bring.

To make my oatmeal, I measure a 1/2 C. Rolled oats and 3/4 C. of egg whites into a microwave safe bowl and cook for 3 minutes in the microwave.

Then I get all crazy up in here with my mix-ins.

  • Chia seeds
  • Strawberries
  • Flax seeds
  • 1 Tbs. of coconut oil
  • Stevia liquid drops
  • Protein PB2 drizzled on the top!

Carbs, Protein, Healthy fats, and omegas all in one bowl!

Perfect breakfast if you ask me!


Yesterday, started bright and early! It was launch weekend at one of the gyms I teach at. We launched combat and then I taught body pump. We had a packed house for both classes! Got to love it. I even grabbed some free yogurtland they were handing out on my way out the door!


It was also the SLC marathon yesterday! The weather was dreadful. It was raining, hailing, windy and really just not the greatest conditions that you would want to race in. I was so impressed and inspired by all those that ran it. I sold my bib about a month ago because I have a vacation next weekend and couldn’t miss work two weeks in a row.

I had several friends run the marathon, even a couple who ran Boston on Monday!

At the expo they had this banner that all the runners could sign to send to Boston.IMG_3132[1]

If you look close you can tell there is not ONE inch left on it. THAT is cool.

My friend Walker ran the entire marathon holding the American flag!


{Thanks for the pics Liz!}

Runners do not back down! Despite the casualties in Boston, we do not let them weaken us, it made us STRONGER!


Afterwards, I didn’t even have time to shower {what’s new?} before we had to be at a birthday party! My friends little girl turned ONE! So we headed to celebrate and I couldn’t get over the amazingness that is this 16 LAYER JELL-O.


You would have to be that most patient person on earth to make it. In fact, my friends mom made it and she takes care of T and B for me while I work so I KNOW she has the patience of a saint. Maybe one day, I’ll test mine through Jell-o. Probably not though. When it comes to food there is no such thing.Winking smile


The kids ate their Jell-o on the floor… It was a jammin party and I didn’t want them to drop anything on carpet so they partied there. They didn’t seem to mind.

I ate lunch when I got home..and it was weird.

Eggs, Spinach, sweet potato with avocado and a sweet potato with protein PB2 on top!


I accidently added to much liquid to my PB2and it looks more like soup then syrup but eh, whatever it still tasted good.

Later in the day, we went for a walk and bee was all ready to go with her cat hat.


My SIL came with us!


Then of course we decided we needed fro-yo post walk. Mainly because I didn’t get to eat the Yogurtland earlier because it hurts my stomach, and I couldn’t get it off my mind so we headed to my favorite fro-you.


They recently came out with RASPBERRY SORBETTO and I tell you this stuff is dreamy!

It is GF, SUGAR FREE, and DAIRY FREE and only sweetened with stevia which makes it 10-15 calories an ounce. Not to mention that its packed with probiotics that make my tummy happy!


I dug right in, This stuff is creamy! I obviously couldn’t get enough because I bought a quart to take home.


I filled it a little high…”on accident.” Someone couldn’t keep her little fingers out of it either!


B and T can’t get enough of the good stuff!

It was a great way to wrap up the day!

Do you eat fro-yo post workout too?

Who else’s inner “fat kid” buys a QUART of fro-yo to take home too?

Did you run/race yesterday?!
