Biggest Loser, Who Me?

For the past sixteen weeks I participated in a Biggest Loser competition at work and guess what WON!

I lost 11.03% of my body weight and this made me feel really good.  

Around the beginning of the competition, my doctor diagnosed me with a gluten intolerance. This caused a huge change in my eating. You cannot imagine how much food contains gluten. Cutting out a lot of gluten items caused me to eat lots and lots of fruits, veggies and protein. Also, I mostly followed the Tone It Up plan.  

If you are not familiar with Katrina and Karena from Tone It Up, you should check them out or check out my previous posts about the 7 day slim down.  I love the support that they give on Facebook, Twitter, and their Tone It Up community.  I have learned so many things about what to eat and when.  Plus they have great workout videos on for free!  

My office is going to host round two of the Biggest Loser competition on campus. I hope I will be saying I won again realizing that the money is not the biggest factor. It is totally about getting rid of weight and feeling better!

My New Addiction, Oatmeal in a Jar

I have a new addiction from an old favorite oatmeal in a jar.

If you are on Pinterest you might have seen the pins about overnight oats.  Well these oats looked so good that I wanted to try them but one hiccup, no regular oats just quick ones so I came up with two hour oats.  Right before leaving for work, I add the following to a mason jar.

1 cup quick oats
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup of Dole Ready Cut Fruit Strawberries, Peaches & Bananas (these are frozen)
1 TBS chia seeds or hemp seeds
add sweetener of choice if needed ( I omit because I do not like sweet stuff in the morning)

Shake everything up and put in my bag that I take to work. So around 10am I open up my major jar and the best creation in recent times for me pops out, two hour oats. No cooking.

My mom thought the no cooking was strange but she tried them and like them so I think you will too. Enjoy!
