Hello everyone, can you believe June is here, where did May go? May was a good month for us, the bank did not accept our offer on the house (which is fine becasue we gave them a low offer to see what they would say) but we accepted their counter offer :) :) :)  Sometime this summer we could be in our first house :) Last week was my last body fit and zumba classes that I took through the parks and rec program :( Hubby and I decided that since I have come to love the group exercise classes it would be more cost effective to join a gym. Last weekend we became members at our local YMCA :) I have already taken two zumba classes and I look forward to trying out more classes. This is the first time that I have worked out in a gym since hubby was in the Marine Corps and I worked out on base.

Hubby and I have been having a more of a cold cereal version of the make ahead oatmeal smoothies I talked about recently.
Image Detail327 calories, 26.5g carb, 2g sugar and 7.9g fiber.
1/4c old fashioned oatmeal
1c unsweetned coconut milk or almond
1T chia seeds
1T whole flax seeds
1T barleans
1/4c Trader Joe's 2% Greek style lowfat plain yogurt

I love Trader Joe's Greek Style 2% lowfat plain yogurt. It has the lowest ammount of sugar that I have found in plain greek yogurt. For one cup it has 5g sugar, 9g carb, 24g protein and 160 calories. I often just use 1/4c or 1/2c at a time for even lower sugar. And for 16 oz I paid $2.79.

I guess that is all for now, I hope eveyone is having a nice weeknd. P.S. this is my 300th post :)


  1. How exciting about the house! How fun that you'll be getting to move in soon. So many seem to really enjoy Zumba; I've never tried it. Congrats on your 300 posts.

  2. Congrats on the house Katie. How exciting! I never had greek yogurt while I was losing my weight, but I have it all the time in maintenance.

  3. congrats on the house. Have a nice weekend :-)

  4. Yay! Congrats on the house! Very exciting! Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy 300th! That is great on the house. You have to be so excited. Are you going to the Central Y? I have heard that Evi is an amazing instructor.

  6. Great news Katie - the house, joining the Y, and you're 300th post!! :)

    Also thanks for the posting the shake recipe. I make a similar one but have never tried adding oatmeal. I love having different options. We make our own yogurt (easy to do) and then we strain it to turn it into Greek yogurt. We make 4 quarts all at once but you can make less. Let me know if you'd like the recipe. Have a great week.

  7. Trader Joe's. We don't have one here in this state.
    And congrats on the house :)

  8. Hooray! For everything! I'd love to try that yogurt - that's 2 grams less than my kirkland brand yogurt - wow! Have a great week!
