This morning I am on my way to NYC. In preparation for it, I made some overnight oats last night to try for the very first time today! I made the Tone It Up lemon honey overnight oats. They were really easy to make (greek yogurt, lemon zest, honey, coconut/almond milk and chia seeds) and I liked the fresh, lemon flavor. I topped with a little bit of shredded coconut and some cacao nibs because, why not?!
Also–today marks the halfway point for my one new thing a day in the month of August. I was a little nervous that it might be tough to get one new thing a day to do, but because I was allowing for simple things–it made it easier. The tougher part is always documenting on the blog. If I do the new thing in the afternoon, it’s more difficult to make time to write a blog post when I have to make dinner or other obligations. I prefer to do my new thing in the morning and have my blog post done early. I’ve set a few exceptions for myself regarding my blog challenge to save both myself and Dave from going a little crazy…
1 – Since my goal was to challenge myself to a new thing a day as inspiration to blog every day, I might not blog about the new thing if I already had something I wanted to blog about that day. For example, yesterday I wrote about my marathon training status and a catch up post from Saturday’s new thing. It felt a little much to write a 3rd blog post about my new thing for Sunday. Instead–I just shared on twitter.
2 – Be okay if I skip a day for a personal reason. I didn’t blog on Saturday. My new thing was seeing a movie with Dave Saturday night. It would have interrupted our night if I got home from the movie and just went straight to write a blog post versus spend time with Dave.
Are you participating in the challenge? If you are–how is it going?!
