and I took a short walk this morning – it was chilly and I was not prepared!  I hadn’t made my lunch, or breakfast yet!

look at how cute he looks!  He hears squirrels - they drive him crazy!

The biscotti worked last night!  Baking powder is my friend!  I am happy I have redeemed myself!


  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 water
  • 2.5 ounce diced apple
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon sf syrup
  • 1 tablespoon trail mix
  • pinch of cinnamon

When I put this into www.calorieking.com to see how much insulin to take, this whole bowl came in at 192 calories, 5.4 fat, 5.3 fiber, 31.6 carbs, 6.5 protein.  Does that sound right?  It seems too low in calories to me!

Hope to work out at lunch, since I missed yesterday.  See you at lunch!

    Great picture of ED – Biscotti looks great!

    We are really enjoying ours. It has been years since I have made them. You are inspiring me to do it! It has been easy to buy them but looks like so much more fun to make them.

    That is a hearty bowl of oatmeal you got there. I love oatmeal with all kinds of stuff in it too. But then cream and brown sugar are always good 😉

    That oatmeal looks scrumptious! I love a good bowl of loaded-up oatmeal for breakfast! The calories might be a little off, but I would guess you are still keeping it to around 250-300 max. Not too shabby! 🙂

    Hey blogger 🙂

    Thanks for putting this post up about apple oats- I am going to be making some in the morning cause I’m all outta banana! I’m not sure what I want to use for toppings yet…..hmmm…..

    Thanks for sharing your office story with me. Some people are so ignorant. It is best to keep your mouth shut at times, other it is appropriate to stand up and educate others. You make the call!
