This is whatÂ our backyard looks like today:
This is what I woke up to find Danny wearing this morning:
Shorts and a t-shirt! I asked why the heck he was wearing shorts and he said with 100% seriousness, It’s going to be 40 degrees today!
I guess after a 10 inch snow storm, 40 degrees is kind of like a heat wave in Chicago.Â But you won’t find me wearing shorts until it’s at least 80 degrees.
Breakfast sure was delicious this morning thanks to the peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough overnight oats recipe that Julie posted yesterday.
I mixed up my own version before I went to bed last night.
In my peanut butter overnight oats:
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp PB2
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp chia seeds (acts as a thickener)
- 1/2 tbsp chocolate chips (I added these on top in the morning)
I mixed everything up and let it sit in the fridge overnight. This morning, I added a small splash of almond milk and the chocolate chips. The perfect breakfast!

Good thing I got a good workout in this morning because I think it’s family Mexican food night! And I love me some Mexican food – it’s definitely my favorite!
After the gym I had some errands to run – Ulta, Old Navy, Target. I have to start getting everything ready for Easter – it’s so early this year! I’m getting the kid’s Easter baskets ready and we’re having brunch by us on Easter, so I am trying to plan the menu. And we always get together with my family to dye Easter eggs.
It was after 2pm when I left Target, and I was starving, so I stopped at Panera for a salad and sandwich.
There’s still time to sign up for the FitFluentialÂ DietBet! If you want to lose a few pounds and win money, join me!
I have to admit that I’ve been slacking a bit with my eating, nothing too bad. But once the DietBetÂ starts, I am really going to buckle down. I am very excited about this DietBet because it will be my last one and complete my one-year weight loss journey.
Danny is also doing this DietBet with me again. He has lost 20 pounds since the beginning of the year but still has a little more that he wants to lose.
I am currently working on a weight loss story page to share with you guys. Here’s an old picture that I found and a picture that I took yesterday:
The first picture was taken about two years ago. I haven’t worn that red flower shirt in a long time, and I pulled it out of my closet to wear yesterday and then I found the first picture of me wearing it about two years ago!
Have a wonderful Friday evening!
