Hello my lovlies and happy Wednesday!

♥ ♥ ♥

I swear time does not exist, I feel it goes by so quickly sometimes.

But here we are again. Middle of the week. And that special occasion we all enjoy so much.

What I Ate Wednesday.

♥ ♥ ♥

I’m still loving the fitness theme and loving it in real life too.  I have had to be creative in my at home work outs, since a gym membership isn’t in my near furture.

But who says you can get sweaty with an at home workout.

#Proof. Sweat-tastic. And ignore the veins popping out of my hand and arm. That is kind of gross.

It’s 100+ degrees here, even by 7am when I get up, so runs aren’t usually a desirable option. But I get sweaty other ways. Although in this heat, cleaning the house gets me sweaty.

Gross. I know.

On to less gross things!

♥ ♥ ♥

So we don’t like to waste around this house.

If I like something, I like to enjoy every last drop of it.

Which means my jars (of almost everything) never get left behind.

Don’t believe me?

♥ ♥ ♥

The lovely Heather treats me so well and sends me lovely presents in the mail sometimes. She knows I am obsessed with the F.R.O.G.’s jam she has access to and sent me a jar.

This stuff doesn’t last long with me. I love it.

Maybe a bit too much because this happens way sooner than I would like it to.

Sad times.

♥ ♥ ♥

I actually hadn’t been eating oatmeal for awhile. I don’t know, I got oatmeal-ed out. If that’s even possible. But when a situation like this happens, there really only was one solution.

Because like I said. No mere morsel of this stuff was going to go to waste.

Oh yes. Return of the OIAJ. I whipped up a batch of “overnight oats” (I quote because they didn’t sit overnight, but I make them as soon as I get up and by time breakfast time rolls around, they have had a long enough time to sit and cool in the fridge)

Topped with half a frozen banana, blueberries and peanut butter drizzle and a little granola crunch.

Welcome back oats. Welcome back.

♥ ♥ ♥

So in conclusion.

How we make a sad day a happy day.

It had to be done. And I’m so glad it did.

♥ ♥ ♥

It doesn’t end there. Oh no. It has only started.

Empty nut butter jar? Why hello there. BAM.

I really forgot how amazing these are. Getting random surprises of peanut butter goodness? It’s a God send.

Frozen surprise berries with pb&j granola are pretty much amazing as well.

♥ ♥ ♥

Think that is where it stopped?

Guess again.

This stuff is like $6 a jar. Not going to waste. Nope. I’m getting my money’s worth!

And I did.

♥ ♥ ♥

Then a couple days ago I noticed another jar of peanut butter looking on the slim side.
I felt kind of bad, because to finish it off I chose Matt’s breakfast by making him a pb&j.

I didn’t feel too bad though.

It was all for a greater cause.

Always sad when a jar of nut butter is gone, but we send them out with style.

And some added blueberry goodness.

Oats, I must have missed you, because I could probably eat you everyday again.

And I just might.

♥ ♥ ♥

Well loves that’s it for me. I’m off to finish more jars and to put more things in them!

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

♥ ♥ ♥

Do you use your empty jars/containers as “bowls”? I seriously find a use for almost every jar. Not just for oats. Cereal has made a few appearances in empty cottage cheese and yogurt containers.
