Friday Success-2, Failure-1

Happy Friday!!!  I’m pumped for the weekend!

I started this lovely Friday morning off with Day #1, Week #3 of my interval training (2 minutes walking, 4 minutes running for 30 minutes).  Knees are doing really good, which makes me SUPER happy 😀


Breakfast #1


Regular PB2 + black raspberries + Mama Lupe’s low carb tortilla =

+ George Foreman


SUCCESSSSS.   If you haven’t tried a grilled fruit and nut butter wrap yet… get on it!  They are delicious!

Breakfast #2

After seeing the breakfast cookie success Leashieloo had on her blog, I decided it was time for round #2 with the breakfast cookie. 

Last night  I gathered all my ingredients:


  • 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp smuckers organic creamy peanut butter
  •  1/8 cup unsweetened Almond Breeze Vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Mott’s unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sweetened coconut

I was a little hesitant when I combined all the ingredients because it seemed like it was just going to be a big mushy mess.  I contemplated making back-up overnight oats, then decided to just pack some extra almond milk so I could make on-the-spot-overnight oats if needed.

Well my worries were valid — my breakfast cookie didn’t turn out like a cookie but more of a mushy mess. 

I added a 1/4 cup of almond breeze to the mix to make it more like overnight oats.  Overall, I think I’m just not a big fan of the applesauce in the breakfast cookies.  Not sure why, but it doesn’t jive with me!

Fail 🙁

Today I had a very special lunch treat!  My friend & colleague Natalie and I had an outdoor picnic courtesy of Jimmy Johns!

I got the usual:  Beach Club Unwich – Mayo + Onion + Giant pickle 😀


Weekend plans include shopping, dining, cookouts, R&R, and fam time 😀

  1. I would just omit the applesauce situation. I forgot to put 1/2 a cup of a mix in today (it was going to be banana) and it turned out very nice.
