I Love Cold Oatmeal

I’ve been on a huge BodyPump kick lately.

In the past I would take the class two times a week and add in a day of my own total-body weights routine for some variety. I haven’t done this in more than a month and today seemed like a good day to spice up my strength training.

How often do you change your workout routine?

Though I looked longingly into the BodyPump classroom this morning, I was committed to doing my own thing and surprising my muscles.

I completed this total-body weights routine with two little cardio bursts woven in:

Total Body Weights + 20 Min. Cardio Workout

Those tricep dips are no joke! My arms were shaking by the end.


I came home to a creamy breakfast bowl that included cold oatmeal, Greek yogurt and thawed frozen strawberries.

Breakfast Bowl

Cold oatmeal may be my new best friend.

I love the stuff! I prepared the oats last night and added a handful of frozen strawberries to the mix to thaw in the fridge overnight. By this morning, I had a cold and berry tasty bowl of oatmeal!

I added a cup of Greek yogurt to the mix this morning, stirred it up and dug in.

I like this breakfast bowl a lot better than overnight oats. Cooking the oats ahead of time and allowing them to cool overnight in the refrigerator changes the texture for the better in my opinion.
