Baking Sweet + Savory

Today started off sleepy, with a yoga mat, and a workout from a magazine. I jumped "rope" for 1 minute, then tackled the following moves with 5lb weights, and a 5lb ball:
  • rapid fire punch (3x20)
  • triceps + shoulders (4x10)
  • knees up crunch (4x10)
  • balancing tricep press (4x10 each side)
  • tripod push up on knees (4x10)
  • omega squat (2x12) then felt sick to my stomach...
So I then stopped moving and sipped some cold water. I have no idea why I felt so sick, light headed, dizzy. I was only 12 minutes into the workout, but hopped in the shower + prepared myself for a refreshing green bowl...

a very delicious bowl, it was. I felt 100% in minutes!
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup rice milk
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 huge handfuls spinach
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 frozen strawberries
then, church was lovely. Acts 13:1-12 ~ The Holy Spirit called people, directed the mission & empowered the message. It is God's church, and we are his messengers, we're called to tell everyone about Christ! The Gospel changes lives, share that with everyone!

A little bit later, hubby and I each had one of these:

rice pudding from Mexican love.

I attempted Quinoa for Breakfast:

I'll give the details tomorrow, depending on how delicious or awkward this morning treat turns out to be!

I made 2 loaves:

[recipe here!]

I ate veggies:

squash, swiss chard, garbanzos, green bell, pineapple, pasta sauce.

I granola-ed:

3 cups oats, chia seeds, cinnamon,
almonds, 4 tbsp veg. oil, 4 tbsp
agave: Bake 10 mins @ 375*


so happy Costco sold me some frozen blueberries again! the mixed berries just aren't as good. This bowl was full of a few spoonfuls of yogurt, cinnamon, wheat berries, raisins, granola + muesli.

That was a good Sunday.
Tomorrow my body is going to get its cardio on at 6am! I'm stoked!
I miss them sweat sessions... and I think my legs do, too.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:8


  1. I've been playing around with making a sweet quinoa dish for quite some time now. I love the little grain, but all of my dishes with it have been savory so far. I love savory oats, though, so I can't imagine that I wouldn't like sweet quinoa :)

    I love a Sunday where the message in church really speaks to you. Yesterday's mass was lovely for me as well... all about having faith and letting go of anxiety. As an over-worrier, I could definitely use more faith in my life. Have to put my trust in God, and know that He'll never let me down.

  2. I've been debating breakfast quinoa, too! I really don't know why I stick to just oats - when really, ANY grain can be made as breakfast!
    Your GM looks delicious, too. I verrrry easily get lightheaded or dizzy when I haven't eaten or drank enough in a day. (even when I think I have!) Maybe that was it?
