Thursday I woke up really craving some oatmeal and blueberries. Nikki’s coconut butter has my stuck in my head too, probably because it is so good! So for breakfast I combined those things and made a wonderful
Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait
1/2 cup oats (or 1 pack plain oatmeal)
3 tbsp liquid egg whites
2 tbsp Nikki’s Coconut butter (macadamia nut cookie flavor)- microwave form 30 seconds to melt

1 scoop vanilla protein powder:
Mix with water until a pudding consistency forms. Drizzle over hot oatmeal and then top with berries and nuts!
This was the most amazing breakfast ever…. If you have a sweet tooth like me you will definitely want to make this! Since I am not eating sweets for my 30 day challenge this totally hit the spot
After breakfast I drank my fitmixer amino before going to crossfit. I tried the fruit punch and it was great!
Crossfit was challenging yesterday!
#1) 20 Minute AMRAP
10 Burpee Pull ups
Rest til Recovery
#2) 50 GHD Sit-Ups for Time
100 Ab Mat Sit-Ups for Time
I used a box for the burpee pull ups, but I will get stronger so eventually I won’t have to do that!
My face was bright red after class! What a great workout.
I had the BUSIEST off day ever yesterday! Non stop running. I finally sat down at like 8:30 ish while American Idol was on! This does not count as an off day for me!!!
After crossfit I went shopping for my Wildtree Party that I am having on Sunday. We stocked up on some meat for sure!!
I did about an hour prep work by separating all the meat and veggies into bags!
On Sunday my friend Jessica comes to host the party and we prep all of our meals with the food we bought! I will have 10-20 freezer meals ready for my husband to easily make when I work 10-12 hour shifts! Healthy meals too, since I am doing the Figure Friendly Menu. I cant wait to eat some of these great meals!
While prepping I ate some lunch myself. Chicken and veggies!
I also had the last of my cinnamon almond butter protein balls, so sad. That means I need to make more.
Since my breakfast was so good I wanted more of Nikki’s so I ate the last of my protein oatmeal loaf (warmed in the microwave) with 1 tbsp of melted coconut butter and 1/2 cup blueberries. Out of this world!
I’ve almost fulfilled my protein needs
I snacked on some carrots and humus while preparing dinner also.
For dinner we had Breakfast!
I made the boys pancakes and I had french toast on Ezekiel Bread with blackberries. Also some scrambled eggs and a turkey sausage patty.
A little Bit About Crossfit And Me
I still get nervous every time I go to crossfit because I know it is going to kick my butt! I have to remember that it is about ME and I need to take the time to do the exercises correctly, even if I do not have the fastest time!
I know I am not the strongest female there, but I will get stronger with time! I will never get better if I don’t go and TRY and ASK questions if I have them!
Burpee Pull Ups were not my specialty but they made my hear rate for sure and it was an awesome workout! Have you ever done burpee pull ups? I can’t wait until I can bust out some strict ones!
Here are some interesting links (that I liked) because I am a beginner crossfiter…. Check them out if you need some reminders, whether you are a rookie or a veteran
Have a good Friday everyone. Dont work too hard like me! (12 hours)
Do you LOVE breakfast for dinner like I do?
Have you made my cinnamon almond butter protein balls yet?? If not, what are you waiting for??
Last but not least, Try the oatmeal parfait, you will die when you taste how amazing it is!
