I am now doing an off season program with my coach Kim Oddo. The focus is really to build more muscle, specifically in my glutes. So that means I have a little more freedom with my diet which has inspired me to create and try some new recipes.
One that I LOVE is overnight oats. Even my family loves this one! It is super easy, you can use any frozen fruit, I wasn't crazy about strawberry, but blueberry was great, and so was cherry. To make overnight oats, place ingredients in a mason jar. I used 1/3 c oats, 1/3 c almond milk, 1/4 c Greek yogurt, 1/4 banana, 1/3 c frozen berries, 10 drops vanilla liquid stevia (see pic for my favorite). You don't have to count out the drops, I use about 1/2 dropper full. Then just stir and shake and refrigerate overnight!
I had these redneck wine glasses, which then inspired me to make more. I have included pics of how to DIY, probably the easiest thing I've ever made.
To make these, all you need are mason jars (I had a couple already but I saw a TON at the thrift store for 75 cents), candlestick holders (dollar store), and E-6000 glue (any craft store, Wal-mart, etc.) just put a line of the glue around the top of the candlestick holder, place and center glue side down on to bottom of mason jar, press and hold for about 30 seconds to a minute. Wipe of access glue (I just used my fingers), and place in a well ventilated area to dry overnight. EASY!
Another fun thing I did this week was use these new gold temporary tattoos I got at The Sweat Store. I'm in love with these! I even got my step-daughter and her friends involved. I will definitely be using these again in the future. Next time I think I will try silver.
I also started cleaning out my art studio (I call it the Art Barn), and I involved my family in on painting creative words on the door. My goal is to have my studio ready by next week (pics to come) so that I can finish my family portrait that I have been working on. I have been going to another artist's studio and working there, but since I am STARTING A NEW JOB (more to come on that too, very excited!), I really need to have my own studio available.
Anyway, lots of exciting changes that will keep me very busy, which is good. Seeing everything that Shana does encourages me that it is possible. We actually talked about this the other day, it seems that the less free time we have, the more we actually get done. Probably because procrastination is not an option.
Hopefully you are inspired to create and try new things this week! We would love to see what you are doing, so send us pics! And if you try any of my ideas, tell us how it turned out!
