Fall Mornings: Crockpot Oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Crockpot Oatmeal

I made Apple Cinnamon (my favorite) crockpot oatmeal for the first time last night and it’s delicious! I love oatmeal, but was skeptical that this would be tasty. It’s not only tasty, but it’s also clean and healthy.

Ingredients:

What you need.

What I used…

Grease your crockpot FIRST!!

I used Unsweetened Almond Breeze in place of skim milk and rolled oats instead of steel cut (didn’t have any).

Throw it all in the crockpot, sliced apples last and cook on low for 7 hours. I got up this morning about 7 and put my crockpot on warm. Left it that way until 10 and it was perfect. I added a few packets of Truvia, well because I have a sweet tooth.

Nutritional Info:

3/4 c. serving size – 149cal (that’s using skim milk), 3.6g fat, 27.3g of carbs, 3.9g fiber, 4.9g protein.

Original idea came from here.

Last night.

This morning!

Yesterday, my new medicine ball arrived, along with my Gymboss timer. I love them both!! So of course I had to try them out.

WOD: 10 weighted squats – 30lbs, 10 strict push-ups – 5 rounds for time

Thrusters and wood chops, oh my!

Used the weight plate for thrusters and the medicine ball for wood chops and more push-ups. Killer workout.

Last thing, if you know me well, you know I LOVE sports. Baseball and football are my two favorites, but I just love competition in general, so I get sucked in to most sports. Last night was VERY bittersweet as a baseball and Atlanta Braves fan. I’ve been a Braves fan my whole life, been to countless games and cheered religiously for them. Chipper Jones was a rare athlete in that he stayed an Atlanta Brave. For as long as I can remember, he has been the face of the Braves. The reason I’ve been a fan. Along with John Smoltz, Chipper has always been my Brave. You know, the one you buy their jerseys, t-shirts, etc… So his last at bat was emotional. I had invested many hours of my life cheering for him and I’m incredibly happy he has retired an Atlanta Brave. Thanks for the 19 seasons, Chipper!! Every minute cheering for you was worth it!!

My favorite Brave!

Homemade taco seasoning

Do you make your own taco seasoning? Well you should ;).

What you need:

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic & onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon sea salt & pepper

It won’t turn your meat that weird orange color and tastes better.

Almost done with September…notice our Disney week?

Did a 3 mile beach run last night, averaged a 7:45 pace.  Was your run this gorgeous?

Sunset run.

Friday ‘WOD’: Run 200m, 11 push-ups, 11 weighted walking lunges (35lb weight plate), 11 thrusters. 5 rounds for time.

Core workout: Plank 2 spidey, reverse plank w/ leg lift, V-ups, ankle taps, butterfly sit-ups. 5 rounds, 15 reps each.

Happy Fall!! We might not get all the beautiful tree colors of fall, but my Birds of Paradise have bloomed! Love them!

Birds of Paradise are blooming!
