Pumpkin Makes a Comeback!

Guess who’s back…. back again….


and it’s in the form of a “speedy” version of the blog world famous Overnight Oats. Visit any healthy living blog and there are recipes for overnight oats. I usually just roll with the instant oatmeal packets, but I tried something a little different this morning.

But FIRST, I had to get up and run Week 3 Day 1 of my C25K plan! It felt amazing outside and made my run so enjoyable!

When I got back from my run, I got to work on my version of overnight oats.

1 packet plain oatmeal

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1/4 cup pumpkin

pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and splenda to taste.

Mix everything together and stick it in the refrigerator for as long as it takes to thicken. For me, I let it sit for about 20-30 minutes while I drank my coffee and checked emails.

Back up to last night’s dinner, and you’ll see that I went with a lazy option. Chad had to get to a meeting last night, so dinner had to be quick. I called on Betty Crocker (in a box) to make this quick Cheesy Chicken and Noodle dish. It was good and worked out fine for a quick dinner! Not too bad for you either. 210 cals, 5g of fat, 32 carbs, 10g of protein, and 4 sugars per serving. Not bad at all. Thanks Betty!

Since yesterday was such a lazy day (I did practically nothing), I had to make sure to have a few plans for today, which include:

-Grocery trip

-Lesson Plans

-Possibly a Haircut?

-Voice Lesson

-Opera Rehearsal

-Dinner alone 😦

Chad had yet another meeting tonight, but this time he wont be home for dinner, so I’m on my own.

Well, I’m off to tackle my to-do list! I may have a Tuesday 10 post up later tonight! 🙂  Thanks for reading!
