Beachin It

03/01/2011 at 7:08 pm 47 comments

Hello my bloggies! 😀

Oh yyeeeaaaa I finally got my beach on. We’ve been having beautiful 80° weather for weeks and I’ve been sitting at home all day! What is wrong with me? I made it a plan to go to the beach and get some much needed color. If you are currently experiencing very cold weather and are forced to wear lots of clothing please avert your eyes, this post may create a lot of jealousy 😉 Just kidding!

Just another day in Miami

It was literally picture perfect weather, I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day. The beach water was a bit chilly but we went in anyways, ah so refreshing! I have to say I have never seen so many topless women at the beach lol It’s not a big deal to me anymore since I’ve gotten use to it but today was way excessive, I swear I must have seen at least 6 topless women walking around. Always something to see in Miami.

I went to the beach after my class which was at 6am. My breakfast was amazingggg. Can you guess what it was?

…..Ok ok yes it was oats 😮

Not just any kind of oats these were pumpkin oats! I ran out of nanners and had a can of pumpkin so why not. Either way I must say I enjoy nanners best 🙂

In my mix: 33g oats, 1 cup water, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, 10g chia seeds

As you must guys must know by now I am a topper, oats without a topping just aren’t the same. I need the crunchy taste to make my tummy feel satisfied.

The goods…

Topped with: Kashi, 1/2 T of chocolate “chips”, walnuts, a sugar free

vanilla wafer and Cinnamon Swirl Pb to top it off.

Another satisfying bowl of oats, it never does me wrong 😉

It was so much fun hanging out with the girls today and just talking about nothing. We’ve been friends since high school which was 2004 so it’s been a long time. It’s the random get togethers that always put a smile on my face.  These girls are gonna be my friends for a long time.

I really contemplated on doing cardio today but the beach just gets you so tired! I am ready for a restful night and a new Glee!

Hope everyone had a fantastic Tuesday.

  • Is the weather this nice where you are now?

(If not you are more than welcome to come down and say Hi! :))

    Okay, I’m on my way to you! It’s “nice” here in VA, but that means it’s 40 degrees and the sun is out. You’re so lucky!
    And I’m a oats “topper” as well! If I couldn’t top it, I wouldn’t want to eat it 🙂

    • 2. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 10:02 pm

    • 6. Jenny  |  03/01/2011 at 10:03 pm

  • 17. Tara  |  03/01/2011 at 11:07 pm

    I loooove pumpkin oats, but I do mix ins. People ask what I top my oats with, and I never know what to say! I am so jealous of the nice weather you’re experiencing! It was nice and sunny out today, but still cold so it didn’t matter too much. Summer will be here… eventually!

    • 18. Jenny  |  03/02/2011 at 10:04 am

      Lol I top it with whatever I find 🙂

  • 19. Kat  |  03/01/2011 at 11:09 pm

    SO jealous of your beach day but happy for you nonetheless! I’m in AZ right now, so I can’t really complain about weather. Warm weather and sunny skies all around! My bf starts medical school in Ft. Lauderdale in the fall…can’t wait to visit and sit on the beach!!! 🙂

  • 40. TheSceneFromMe  |  03/02/2011 at 2:00 pm

    I love all these bowls of goodness you are fixing! So yummy!
    It’s not too warm here in Indiana, sunny though, I’d rather be in Miami 🙂

  • 41. Laury @thefitnessdish  |  03/02/2011 at 2:32 pm

    You are definitely creating jealousy.

    It was about 55 here today, which was nice compared to 30!!!

  • 42. Fervent Foodie  |  03/02/2011 at 3:12 pm


  • 43. Kristie  |  03/02/2011 at 3:49 pm

    You’re right, jealousy for sure going on right here. BEACH weather? I still see a blanket of white stuff… at least the sun is shining here. It’s a start!
    I used to eat my oatmeal decked out with tons of cereal for a crunchy topping… and then I completely stopped doing that. I think I need to bring back the crunch!

  • 44. mindrunningwild  |  03/02/2011 at 5:04 pm

    pumpkin oats=heaven
    and the weather is SO not nice where I am now. It is so windy I’m feeling a draft through my window…..
    enjoy your sun and sand : )

  • 45. fitnessnfoodiegirl  |  03/02/2011 at 5:40 pm

    The beach looks lovely! It has been pretty nice here too, but not THAT nice! I hope you are enjoying it 🙂

  • 46. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  03/02/2011 at 7:37 pm

    The weather’s nice here..but I gotta say I’m totally jealous of the beach!!

  • 47. Olivia  |  03/02/2011 at 8:26 pm

    Oh Soooooo jealous!! I would kill to be in Miami right now:) pumpkin oats look amazing, I love that combo!
