>never let go of hope.

>my tattoo i got on saturday šŸ™‚
i love it. it didn’t hurt at all either, surprisingly!

im finally feeling like myself today. i have been sick with a terrible head cold for the past 4 days. so that equaled lots of soup, vitamin c, sleep, and no exercise. i rested instead.

but i decided to crank it up a notch today and go back to my usual mondays with 3.5 hours in the gym. t-n-t, power yoga, 20 min treadmill, bodyattack. i think my physical activity today kicked my cold’s butt.

my eats:
i decided to change up my oats a little bit this morning and had overnight oats! last night i put these together using a recipe from the edible perspective.

Overnight Pumpkin Oats:

  • 1/3c oats
  • 1/3c pumpkin (these turned into normal overnight oats because my pumpkin was moldy!)
  • 1/3c plain SF greek yogurt (i ran out of greek so i just used nonfat plain)
  • 1/3c unswt. vanilla almond milk
  • 1 small bananer
  • 1/2t cinnamon
  • few shakes of nutmeg + ginger
  • vanilla extract splash
  • i added 1/2 scoop of chia seeds as well
  • i also added 2 organic figs

i put the dry ingredients together first
these figs were only 75 cents @ walmart the day i got them!
i added in the milk, yogurt, banana, and cut up figs
and mashed it all up together
put it in the fridge overnight in a bowl covered with saran wrap.
this morning i added more cinnamon, sugar free maple syrup, & 1 tbsp of chopped walnuts
cold oats are definitely not as delicious as hot oats…but i still liked them =)

for lunch today i decided to eat swiss chard. i’ve never had swiss chard and it looks so pretty.
i found a recipe that used eggs and after working out for 3.5 hours, i needed some protein.

here is where i got the recipe.

Swiss chard scramble
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 bunch chard, leaves and stems chopped separately
4 eggs
1 tsp turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Saute onions until tender, and then add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for another minute. Add chard stems and let cook until tender (about 5 min). Then stir in chard leaves, cover skillet, and let cook until chard is wilted (about 3 min). While chard is cooking, whisk together eggs, turmeric, and salt and pepper. Pour eggs into the skillet and stir with the chard until eggs are cooked (about 4 min). Serves 2-3.

i cut everything in half to make it serve only one! except i did end up using a bunch of chard… i needed to get rid of it. and lettuce doesn’t have many calories šŸ™‚

first saute your onions
make sure to chop your swiss chard stems & leaves separately
add garlic and red pepper to your onions
add stems & cook until tender then add leaves. cover & cook until leaves are wilted
mix eggs, turmeric, salt & pepper
add to the skillet
and enjoy the foodgasm. i added some hot sauce on mine to help clear out my senses. hah
with some cottage cheese too. just to get rid of it!

well….off to studying now. joy.

    Such a great tat. My husband just dumped me recently out of the blue… I’m looking for inspiration to get a “If you love something let it go” theme ink. I like your “never let go of hope” and the dandelion to birds, so awesome! What made you think to do it? I won’t copy you but it made me smile to see it. Rock on.
