The ends of a week are now bittersweet for me. Sweet because it’s Friday and that means tomorrow’s Saturday and I don’t have to work. Bitter because each Friday means the end of the week, giving me one less week of wedding planning. Guess I really need to update this page huh?)
I’m trying to remain calm and tell myself it’ll all be ok. But I am stressing!
It seems like each day my “To Do” list gets longer and longer. I keep telling myself that as long as Lucas and I show up (and the officiant) the rest is just fluff.
We’re scrambling to get our invitations out. But I think we’ve come up with a pretty awesome game plan. We’re making our cards using a free template from Wedding Chicks. My dad is taking our engagement photos tonight to use with our cards. And everything should be ready to mail by Monday.
On top of all this scrambling, I’m trying to get a little bit buffer (buffer?) for my wedding day. With only two months to tone up I’ve gotta make sure that I reduce my cake snacking and cookie munching to a minimum.
All fitness experts say the best way to firm up is to track what you eat and make sure you eat a healthy breakfast.
For me, that means oats. And oats mean in a jar.
If you’ve never tried Oats in a Jar, you must do it, and do it now!
Hearty oats are mixed with milk and yogurt, left in a jar overnight, and turn in to this thick, cold, creamy jar of breakfast.
You might be thinking this sounds gross and disgusting. But don’t knock it til you try it!
It leaves me full for hours…and keeps me from having the one little bite of a brownie, that ends up turning in to a huge chunk of brownie.
Apple Pie Oats in a Jar
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup plain lassi (or yogurt)
1/3 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon chai seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/2 an apple diced
Mix all ingredients in a mason jar and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hours. Top with granola, peanut butter, maple syrup drizzle, and enjoy.
