I am committed to strength training and just starting to remember what I used to like about strength training back when I used to be committed to it. I guess this makes me RE committed to strength training then : )
Anyways, I know that I am committed because even though I had to be at work early one morning last week, I still got up, went to the gym, and did my own strength routine. It was shorter than my usual AM workout, but I made it work and using the jump rope in between sets, made the most of my time. I still haven’t mastered the strength training selfie, so I don’t have a good photo to accompany this post. Mostly, I haven’t mastered it because I typically leave my phone in the car or in the locker room because I’m always embarrassed to get caught taking photos of myself. Unless I’m upside down in an aerial yoga class that is…there I did just fine.
So after my workout, I had a quick turn around time to get myself ready for work and on the road. And had to fit in breakfast. I didn’t have any bread for almond butter toast and only had steel cut oats. I also happened to have yogurt from a previous recipe. Although I don’t typically eat a lot of dairy, I wanted to use the yogurt before it spoiled. I knew there was a way to do overnight oats with steel cut oats and thought just maybe the yogurt could work too.
I was able to find a recipe for inspiration and came up with my own concoction. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out and was thrilled with my breakfast when I sat down to eat it before drying my hair.
So excited that I even took a few pictures to share the recipe with ya’ll!
I ate my oats with an apple and was truly satisfied with the thick mousse like texture.
I liked this breakfast so much, that I made it again this morning after spin class!
What do you eat at the gym?
Here are a few of my other favorite On-The-Go breakfasts…
I know last week was kind of a bust with my messed up meatballs, so I’m excited to have lots of recipes for you guys this week!
Starting with these incredible cookies…
Steel Cut Overnight Oats (in Yogurt)

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (optional depending on desired consistency)
10 tsp ground flax
10 tsp chia seeds

Place in refrigerator over night until set.
In the morning, cover oats with your favorite toppings, like nut butter and fruit, and enjoy!
