PB&J Oatmeal Delight

Happy Thursday!

Today marks the halfway point for bootcamp….thank goodness!

Yesterday, Mom and I enjoyed a scrumptious lunch at Bertucci’s. They have the best rolls. Every time I’m in Connecticut, I just have to go!

Our salad came with a lite burgundy dressing that was surprisingly good!

027 (6)

Mmmmmmm. Bread.

028 (5)

I ordered the Mediterranean Salmon Salad.

This salad is really good! The salmon has some type of pesto on it, and there’s also navy beans, capers, sundried tomatoes, and garlic croutons.

I guess we were hungry!

Purple lettuce. Ick.

We asked to bring our extra rolls home, and the waiter gave us a bag with 4 rolls and dipping oil inside Smile

A pumpkin spice latte for me! Gloria Jean’s makes a reallllly good one…I liked it better than Starbucks!

Sammy has such hairy paws!

Birdie was hiding on my chair at the dinner table….sneaky cat!

Today’s breakfast was a pretty darn tasty one – Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal!

In the bowl:

  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. flaxseed
  • 1 small apple, chopped (not part of a normal pb&j, but I love apples)


  • Grape jelly
  • Peanut butter
  • Peanuts

Yum!!!!! Tomorrow I might try this with a sliced banana, instead of apple – we’ll see!

Today’s Workout:

At home Body Pump:

I set my phone’s timer for 5 minutes and switched muscle groups after time was up.

1. Squats

2. Chest

3. Back

4. Triceps

5. Biceps

6. Lunges

7. Shoulders

8. Abs

It was a fun time….but I’m starting to miss the group atmosphere of Body Pump at the gym!

  • Raspberry lime seltzer (mmmmmm!)
  • Baby carrots
  • 1/2 pomegranate (first of the season…I love this fruit!)
  • Tuna fish sandwich

And for dessert:

I saw this chocolate bar by the checkout at Trader Joe’s last weekend and decided we needed to try it!

021 (7)

Mmmmm. It had the consistency of a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but it was WAY better. Yum. Mom and I both had two pieces….this stuff is dangerously delicious!

Question of the Day:

What’s your favorite pumpkin spice latte? Starbucks? Another coffee shop? Homemade?
