I learned a very important lesson yesterday, overnight oat are not over weekend oats! I went to open my breakfast yesterday morning, not too hot on eating oats in the first place and was greeted with a pretty bad taste and an even worse texture. So those went in the garbage and I ended up having some cherries and some almonds that I had in my desk.
It wasn’t enough though because by the time lunch rolled around I was starving! For lunch I brought in an Amy’s Bowl, I use to eat these when I was at Ocean Spray so I thought why not give them a go again.
The taste was very good but it was still a frozen meal and I would much rather leftovers or making something the night before. Sadly there was nothing left from the calzone night that I wanted so it was a freezer meal. It did the job and I was satisfied for the rest of the day. I then headed off to the gym where I did a quick 30 minute warm up on the elliptical. For some reason I couldn’t find a program that really got me sweating, but I also didn’t try to do it myself because I was too busy playing games on my phone. The blood got moving though and that was all I really needed so I could jump into a strength circuit. For the circuit I combined all body groups to get an all over workout. I don’t know when I’ll be going to the gym again since the rest of the week is crazy and then I’m on vacation. I call it the ABCD workout because it gets the Arms, Back, Core and Derriere.
I had a pretty good mix going too which kept me motivated, along with the constant switching of exercises this workout flew by.
By the time I made it home I was starving, so I quickly whipped up a marinate for the pork based off something I found on Pintrest but with my own little twist. I was a little nervous but thought the worse case was we just put some barbecue sauce on it and cover the taste. While the boyfriend was grilling the meat I made us some couscous and some corn. I also loaded my plate with salad, that way I didn’t eat as much pork and couscous.
The meat turned out fabulous, the boyfriend did a stellar job grilling it and the marinate was really good too. The best part was it used stuff that I already had in the pantry.

We had a winner!
- 1 LB of Pork Chops
- 6 TB of Honey
- 5 TB of Soy Sauce
- 2 TB of Gourmet Garden Garlic
- 1 TB of Crushed Red Pepper
Combine all ingredients except the pork chops in a bowl and whisk together until completely blended. Once they are incorporated add pork for about 10 minutes before cooking. While grilling the chops brush on additional marinate.
