Over Night Oats That Weren’t

By Marensmorsels @marentweets

Good morning guys. How’s your mornings going? Mine has been a little disappointing.


First. Last night I had the brilliant idea to make Over Night Oats. So I mixed some Stonyfield French Vanilla yogurt with rolled oats and some raspberries. It looked really good this morning.


I took one bite and they weren’t that tasty and my body screamed “I don’t want you!”. I thought simple over night oats would be delicious but I guess not.

Weight Loss

I’ve been trying to eat really well this summer and I knew thought I had done a great job this last week. so I stepped on the scale thinking I’d see a drop in my weight. I can even tell I look slimmer in my clothes. But the scale read no change. It might have even gone up a little.

Here’s the deal, I’m not making it my sole purpose in life to lose weight. I’m just trying to eat healthy and light. And the past months I’ve dropped a few pounds, steadily. So after such a great week of light eating I just assumed I’d see something positive on the scale this morning and I didn’t.

I know I’ve been working out a lot more lately and I build muscle really fast. So I probably have gained a few pounds of muscle. I guess the whole experience was a little disheartening. To feel like I did so well and not see any results from it.

Oh well, life goes on!

The Real Breakfast



Old Faithful. A sourdough english muffin, a slice of turkey, fried egg, and a slice of cheese.


I’m off to the office for a morning of work.
