Thankful Thursday & Zap GIVEAWAY Reminder!

On this day in History in 1940: The animated feature-length film Fantasia is released.

Thursday Thursday....

Today our class is going on a field trip to the Museum, to partake in the "Great Southern California Shakeout". It's a an event that raises awareness about what one should do during an earth quack. It's weird how living here so long has made me completely numb of the fear of earth quacks but when I lived in Memphis I was sacred to death of tornado's!!!!

This morning the alarm went off at 4am but I decided to snooze it and skip spinning class, my right hip flexor and knees are a little too sore right now, and I am doing kickboxing tonight so I will get some exercise. I made a new bfast combo, Muffin Top Oats.


1/2 c oats
1/2 c hemp milk
1/2 cup H2O
1/2 Banana sliced
handful of unsweetened coconut flakes
handful of flax seed
dash of Cinnamon
1/2 whole wheat banana muffin
drizzle of agave nectar
spoonful of pumpkin butter

I love putting Oatmeal on toast, so I thought what better then putting a muffin right on top!!! I was yummers:)

I also had a cup of peppermint mocha sweetened coffee in my Youth Works cup. Youthworks was something I did for three summers, and opportunity of a lifetime!!!!

Well I am off for the day, going to do a bit of stretching before I hit the shower. I think that today well be a Thankful Thursday, even though I am going through a rough season, there is still much to be thankful for. Have a THANKFUL THURSDAY!

Remember tomorrows the last day of the ZAP PB contest, get your comments in and even your extra ones!!!!

There is DEFINITELY a lot to be thankful for in life - thank you for reminding me of that, on this Thursday.

I am thankful that I don't live in California because I am DEATHLY afraid of earthquakes. Oddly enough, I'm not very scared of tornadoes.

Also, I like your muffin top idea. I want to eat some muffin tops, rather than have muffin tops on my jeans. :(

Thanks! Unfortunately I won't be able to participate after all - I went to the doctor and he decided to remove a mole FROM MY LEFT HEEL!! It makes walking difficult and running impossible. Sad day. Good luck with the contest, I can't wait to see how it goes!
