Praise Report Share

I wanted to share this everywhere I can. Don't give up!!GOD is always there with you even when times are low! My event today so I had to share.

Awesome praise report!!! I found a Walmart gift card in my wallet. I have had this gift card for a very long time. The time is tough and tight right now. Off to Walmart I go shopping for the monthly groceries. I struggle at every item and I am weighing the options whether to buy or not. Get to check out and end up giving the cashier a coupon which he said was expired! The he said he will give it to me anyway. The I give him the gift card, and he swipes it and hands the card and the receipt back to me and says thank you. "What wait, I don't owe anything?" He said, " no mam, there was plenty on the card"!!!! GASP!! I thanked GOD all the way to the car and shed a couple of tears to. Blessings in disguise!!

So I ended up downloading Suzanne Collins Catching Fire and Mocking Jay audible book for free through the library!! WOW!!! Ok yes I did go to the book sale today and got 6 books for $7, not to bad huh!! Now off to find more time to read!!! Oh and quilt!! Quilt update tomorrow!!

June 2, 2015

WOW what a morning. Lost 2 hrs of sleep. My back was killing me!! Not sure if I may have over did the exercise or not. I thought the workout was rather simple. But man oh man all night my back hurt pretty bad. Not to mention all day to. The foods I ate was a new recipe for Chicken, broccoli, and quinoa. It was very good at dinner last night and today for lunch. Been having breakfasts in a jar also.  Snacks today were celery and carrots. Basically the foods that I had planned to eat today I ended up not eating all of them. I am sure thats a good thing. Well, skipped the workout today and maybe tomorrow I will give the work out another try but maybe not the full amount.

June 1, 2015

Ok I officially started the 21 Day Fix plan. Well, I think I did very well personally for the first day. I didn't drink the required water amount. But I did drink water. The only sugar I did have was in the am in my coffee. I haven't had any bread all day. Did very good. I also tried a 20 min quick workout that Autumn  had posted on her You Tube Channel. Well, I thought I was dying!! Yeah and it was a real simple work out. Then I figured out real quick I am really out of shape. But hopefully I will be able to at least eat in small portions and get some exercise in.

21 Day Fix Breakfast Idea

     Life is busy and we make it harder than we should sometimes. I have found a cool breakfast idea for busy people. I am in the process of merging into doing the 21 day fix program, so this works perfectly for breakfast.
     Breakfast In A Jar!! Yes thats true breakfast in a jar. How cool does that sound. I don't have a picture of my own for you so I will borrow one idea from the web and link the recipe there. Look at this yummy goodness in a JAR!. Below is my recipe I used.

1/4 C old fashioned rolled oatmeal (can use steel cut)
1/3 C Almond Milk (unsweetened)
1/4 C Greek Yogurt (low fat)
1 tsp Chia seeds
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla flavoring)
1/2 C blueberries (or desired fruit)

21 Day Fix results= 1/4 purple, 1/3 red, 1/16 orange, 1 yellow

Place all ingredients in a jelly jar and lid. Shake well and place in fridge overnight. Perfect grab and go meal.
Disclamer: I am not a Beachbody Coach, I am just learning how to eat better.
