Hi! My name is Jamie, and welcome to my day-to-day journey in finding balance in life. Although there are many surprises and challenges in our every day, I believe life can be made easier by controlling what we can. By eating real, honest, wholesome food, living an active lifestyle, and looking at things optimistically, we can feel free to attempt the impossible: take chances, make mistakes, yet still find our way back to balanced.

Today was such a dreary day, and especially on a Monday it was just so hard to stay awake at work!
I slept ’til 7:30 when I woke up on my own without an alarm. Wish I could have slept a bit later…
Woke up and had some oatmeal
^^Paired with a cup of back coffee^^
Super Creamy Oatmeal
1/4 cup oatmeal (I use quaker)
1/4 cup oat bran (Hodgson Mills)
1 cup almond milk
1 Tbs Chia seeds
Put all ingredients in pot and bring to boil. Stir while it bubbles for about 5 minutes. The longer the creamier.
Top with fresh fruit and nuts. Enjoy 🙂
For lunch today I used a mish-mosh of fridge leftovers:
^^Salmon, eggplant, spinach, olive/pomegranate tapenade^^
^^Top Flat Out wrap with goat cheese and above ingredients ^^
Roll and pop into toaster oven…
^^Gets nice and crispy!^^
^^Look at the size of this cucumber!^^
Around 2:30 I was totally feeling that “2:30 Feeling” (5 Hour Energy commercial anyone??)
Since I think I would not like a 5 Hour Energy drink, or any energy drink for that matter, I solved the problem like so:
^^2 advil (was a bit sore), a vitamin B (was told these perk you up), some dark chocolate, and some coffee^^
And a State Farm ad 🙂
It worked- ’til 6 when I came home for dinner—
^^Lentils, WW cous cous, hard boiled egg, parmesan cheese^^
Can you say protein!?
Such a random day of eats- now off to Pilates! Can’t wait to stretch out…
