Wow- this weekend has been crazy busy and I just have not had much time in front of a computer.  For the sake of simplicity I am just going to catch up fast on what I ate.

Sunday: breakfast: two packets of instant maple brown sugar oatmeal, coffee
snack: banana
lunch: potluck lunch at church with black beans, watermelon, salad, some kind of pasta salad with brownie, and some kind of pudding based dessert
snack: apple, pumpkin pie smoothie
dinner: pilsbury savorings, 4 cookies

As you can see there was a lot of fat, crazy amounts of desserts and sweets, and just a lot of heavy eating.

I know I made some good choices yesterday as far as fruits and veggies go but dinner and everything else was just too much.  Too much fat, too much sugar, too much quantity.  All I can do is try today and dust myself off and make better decisions.  While I'm here I'd like to share two recipes with you.

Cherry Pie Oatmeal:
1/2 rolled oats,
1/2 c vanilla soy milk
1/2 c water
1/4 c dried cherries

Mix all together and heat oatmeal in microwave for 4-5 minutes.  It is delicious!

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal:
1/2 c pumpkin (frozen in ice cube trays works best)
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 c vanilla soy milk or 1 serving of silken tofu
1 t maple syrup
cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice
1-2 ice cubes

blend until smooth, creamy, and fantastic.  A nice alternative to hot pumpkin coffee drinks.  Also, the banana sweetens the drink and makes it thick but you do not really taste the banana
