Make Mine Upside Down

It’s humpday already! I’m still pretty confused as to what day it is after the long weekend of traveling, but I think I’m just about back on schedule. I slept pretty good last night after running, eating, and reading for a bit. I had a hard time getting out of bed, actually – I think I hit the snooze 4 times? it’s hard to want to get out of the warm bed when I’ve got a big warm cat keeping my feet warm on the bed.

I thought about having eggs this morning, but oatmeal won again. I had some pineapple in the fridge that I needed to use, so I made my pineapple upside down oats.


It’s been too long since I made this one. I need to remember to keep some kind of pineapple in the house at all times.


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts
  • cinnamon!
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp brown sugar, for melt effect


Hello, walnut

Oatmeal + fruit + nuts + cup of milk = one of my favorite breakfasts


Plus an awesome cup of coffee Nick made me –


Today is our last day of BodyPump  :(  Our gym membership ends this week, and I don’t think we’re renewing it right now. Today should be a good one!

I can’t wait to get in the car and read some more on the way to work!


What are your favorite strength moves/routines/videos to do at home? I don’t want to lose the muscles I’ve gained from BodyPump!


  1. Hmmm, I would probably recommend one of Jillian Michaels’ torture dvds or the Firm. Which reminds me, I need to start doing them again!

  2. Jillian Michaels. All the way! Also Women’s Health and SHAPE have really fun and easy strength training routines in their magazines or on their websites too.

    The coconut looks great!

  3. I love Jillian Michael’s dvds I have a couple of them.
    I love your breakfast it looks amazing!

  4. Great breakfast!! I have no videos to recommend… sorry!

  5. Jillian Michaels’ 30 Minute Shred is great

  6. Great looking Oatmeal! My gym membership ends next month too. But I got some great DVDs to keep me company ;)

  7. i agree — must remind self to have pineapple available on a consistent basis!

    i’m so lousy with at-home workouts — i never stick to them! let us know if you find the answer :-)
