Weigh-In Wednesday 12-5-12

Hey Guys!

It's that time 'o the week again! If you follow us on Facebook (and I hope you do) you have heard us mention our new contest which STARTS TODAY. For those of you that don't follow us, we'll wait here while you go take care of that. Take your time, we'll be here when you get back......

LIKE US HERE ------> <--------


 Did you do it? Ok, good! Let's continue! We're just going to quickly go over the rules again. Every Wednesday in December we will weigh-in on our blog and on our Facebook. You comment on our Facebook post with your weigh in. If you don't feel comfortable posting your weight for all the world (or at least 158 of us! ;) ) to see then just comment with whether you lost, gained or maintained. If you do this EVERY Wednesday in December you are entered into a drawing for a $20 gIfT cArD to the store of your choice. It's THAT EASY!

On to the numbers!

Starting weight - 244
Current weight - 230
Pounds lost this week - 4
Total pounds lost - 14
I am happy with my loss this week and motivated to keep on the straight and narrow. I am having a hard time getting motivated to work out because I have so much going on in my life right now and frankly, I'm exhausted! However, there are still 4 days left in this week and I am committing to work out every day to meet our 4 days a week goal. As always, I am so thankful for everyone that has supported us and helps to keep us going. I have a feeling December is going to be awesome!

Starting weight - 240
Current weight - 233
Pounds lost this week - 0
Total pounds lost - 7
Another week, another no pounds lost. Now, I'll be honest, this week I've only focused on the goals we set in our last blog which were no fast food, no soda and working out. However, I'm convinced I've got some sort of something that's preventing me from losing weight. I've made drastic changes compared to how we WERE doing things before the blog started. I'm just going to continue on this path until after the Holidays and then try leaving out wheat and if that doesn't work, dairy will be added to that list of things I shall have no more. Never the less, I am thankful for all the support and new friends we've made! It might be hard right now, but I know it will pay off in the end.... right?......... anyone?

So that's it for us! Make sure you get involved in the contest and please share our contest graphic, that is pinned at the top of our Facebook page. Thank you so much for reading and GOOD LUCK!

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oats

Hey guys!

Today I am going to share with you a recipe for Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oats!
This is a recipe that a lot of you seemed interested in. Sorry it has taken me so long to post! It would not be an exaggeration to say that I'm obsessed with my crockpot! (Ok, maybe a slight exaggeration). However, because of the wonder that is the crockpot, this recipe could not be simpler! You throw the ingredients into the crockpot, mix, set on low and go to bed! Then you get to wake up to a wonderful smelling house AND breakfast! That, my friend, is what I call a Win/Win!!!!!

Here we go!!

Nutritional Info:

Protein - 6g

Here's what you need!

First, spray your crockpot really well with non-stick cooking spray.

Put 1 c. of steel cut oats, 2 1/2 cups of water, 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 cup of pure pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!), 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, 4 Tablespoons of honey (or you can omit the honey and add it in when you eat the oats, which is what I will do next time.)

Mix it! Mix it good! Cover, turn crockpot on low and GO TO BED!!!!! (This is my favorite step of the recipe!!)


Please tell us how you like this recipe and if you did anything different! We love your suggestions!
See ya next time!!!!!
