Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

Hello....Hello...Anybody out there? Does anyone read this blog anymore? No? That's okay because I have neglected it something awful! I have been so busy with my children and their sports/end of the school year activities that this blog has become the last thing I think about.
So an update, yes I am staying true to PINK...I have messed up/cheated a few time but that is okay everyone does once in a while. The important thing is to get back on track and not let the cheating/messing up spiral out of control. To date I am down 45 pounds. I will post updated pictures in the near future though there isn't much change in my body, I don't think. I signed up for the Spartan race yesterday which will be on June 16th, the day after my birthday. That should be a fun challenge for myself. If you don't know what that is, it is similar to the Warrior Dash just a little longer and supposedly a little tougher, we will see. I am excited because it is not something I would have even thought about 6 months ago.
Hopefully when life calms a little bit I will be more inspired and come up with some more recipes but I wanted to share/pass along a link to a recipe I found on Pinterest yesterday for an overnight refrigerator oatmeal. I am not posting the recipe on this blog because I didn't create the recipe and don't have permission to post it but go to the link above and you will see 6 different flavors you can try or get the general idea and come up with your own flavor combinations. I assembled the chocolate banana versions before I went to bed last night and ate it for breakfast this morning...it was really good. I know it sounds odd especially because you don't cook the oatmeal but trust me it was really good and satisfying. It was rich and yummy and a perfect blend of protein and slow carbs for those of you who are in the primary phases of PINK and are following the blueprint for your meals. I can see this being a really good breakfast on those hot summer mornings where eating something warm just doesn't sound good. It is also a really good breakfast to take along with you when you are in a hurry in the morning. I made a raspberry version this morning for breakfast tomorrow, can't wait to try it. Give it a try and let me know if you come up with any good flavor combinations.
