Updating... Once again.

Earlier I was thinking that if I just blogged regularly, I wouldn't have to keep doing updates. 

But, since I've noticed I've been lacking discipline lately... I'm not surprised I haven't been consistent.. 


Seriously though.


I've been ocupied with getting my Mary Kay business started up! I've been practice makeovers on faces...I need to get 30 done by the 31st! WOW! So excited to share the #1 makeup product (to me) to the people I know and love!

I've also been getting Thor ready for the fair. Fair is Monday. Let me say that again, Fair is MONDAY. Pray for me. 
He's so cute when he begs for licorice. 

ATTENTION: I'm doing the 24 day challenge starting Monday. Don't worry, it's totally safe. It's been since 90 days since I've done the cleanse. 

Bad news is.....I'm pretty sure I've gained back the weight that  I lost when I my first challenge... :( I did that to myself and no pity parties are allowed! I'm going to DESTROY the challenge and remain active and eating like a normal person. 

Until we meet again,

XOXO Katie

I Don't Always Eat Oats..

I am guilty of being a repeat eater of oats.. {As you may or may not be able to tell by my previous posts..} 

I love oats because you can put peanut butter in them.. And I love anything that you can eat with peanut butter.. 

But, I don't ALWAYS eat oatmeal. 

Believe it or not, but I made a bagel sandwich. And it was glorious.

It's not so beautiful looking.... But it was beautiful TASTING!!! 

I had to take out the pepper and eat them separately because it was too hard to handle all of it. #foodieprobs ;) 

1 whole wheat bagel thin
3 slices of lunch meat {turkey}
4 slices of yellow pepper
1 laughing cow  sun basil  flavored cheese.

Toast the bagel. Construct as wanted. Devour.

4th of July Festivities

Good morning my lovelies! 

Hope you had a WONDERFUL 4th of July celebration this weekend!! I hope it was filled with lots of friends, food, and great memories! 

My 4th was pretty low key {I didn't mind..}. I stayed home with my family and later on in the day went over to a friends. Caught some rays, had good conversations, and ate some fabulous food!! 

I did get a little festive and made a blueberry, strawberry and yogurt covered pretzel tray {Inspiration is from Pinterest.. S/O to Pinterest for always giving me GREAT ideas!!!} 
Isn't it adorable?!?! 

It didn't last long... Actually, it lasted long enough to take is picture.... 

I'm off to the gym! Make today a GREAT one!

Raspberry Chia Seed Jam

Ripening raspberries + newly bought chia seeds = Raspberry Chia Seed Jam 

I've made jam before with like 4 tons of sugar.. But, this time I was thinking I should take another route {Inpiration credit to The Honour System

All the hype about chia seeds had me wondering what they were really all about. Turns out they have an amazing amount of fiber and healthy fats. Score! 

What you'll need:
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup raspberries
2 tbsp honey


1. Soak chia seeds in 1 tbsp of water for about 10 minutes
2. Place raspberries, chia seeds, and honey into a blender or mixer of choice.
3. Place jam in a container or jar. Refrigerate. 
4. Consume and enjoy!

Perfect for bagels, bread, or whatever else comes to mind!
