Pumpkin Pie for BREAKFAST?!

Well, not REALLY pumpkin pie...but it sure tasted like it!

Move It Momma's "Pumpkin Pie" Oatmeal
You'll Need:
3/4 cup steel cut oats, bring to a boil until cooked
2 tbs pumpkin puree
1 tsp ground cinammon
sprinkle of light brown sugar

*I created this recipe after a great run this morning and it was SO good that I wanted to hurry up and share it with all of you! It was filling and tasted great too!
After today's workout, I signed up for my VERY, FIRST HALF MARATHON and although I cannot get my hopes up, because it's Houston and lottery style, I am VERY excited to take this journey and complete this race in January!! I will find out Monday if we made it in and if not, we will sign up for the Livestrong Half in Austin, set for either way, I'm DOING THIS!!!

Stay tuned, I will be announcing the AWESOME GIVEAWAY ITEMS from our EIGHT sponsors, up for grabs for Independence 5K participants! Most of the prizes are on their way to me RIGHT NOW! WooHoo! Thanks to all of you that have spread the word for this exciting, virtual race! It's not too late to sign up, email me your info at

Tip of the Week:
If you bite it, WRITE IT! Sometimes we all get off track and find our eating habits a little out of control. To get back on track just in time for summer, get a journal and follow this simple rule...IF YOU BITE IT, WRITE IT and I think you'll find that tracking your food will hold you accountable and help you focus on putting delicious, healthy foods back into your diet and taking the junk food out. This will help keep your portions in control and help you avoid empty snacking!

What are your goals for the summer?

You did it! Way to sign up for your first half. Planning, training and looking forward to it are half (haha!) the fun.

I'm posting about your 5k tomorrow. I'll send you an email with the link, I need that extra entry for the AWESOME prizes.

Yay for the half! Great advice I needed to hear about biting and writing. I always have to remind myself that when I count my calories I lose and when I don't. . .well I don't. Good reminder and something I am working on.
