Does anyone else feel like the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a lot closer than it really is?
Not that one month is a long time, but I always end Thanksgiving break with the notion that Christmas is like..two weeks away; One long weekend, quickly followed by another.
I guess we are all ready for a break once the end of the year rolls around, and though I have not started my Christmas shopping yet, I did get a head start on the decorating process!
Matt and I are still debating on cutting down a real tree vs. buying a fake one this year. We both agree that a real tree makes Christmas feel like Christmas, however carrying it in and out of our apartment and picking pine needles out of the carpet for weeks can become a rather strenuous task.
(plus I really want a white tree this year, and I’ll do whatever it takes to get it)
So along with decorating for the holidays, I also created a new workout and playlist for some Post Thanksgiving/Pre Christmas Fat Burning Fun!

OH! One more thing…
I have been loving the addition of 1-2 Tbsp. of ground flaxseeds in my oatmeal.
Allowing the oats and flax to settle in water for 10 minutes before heating in the microwave creates a fluffy, creamy texture, and it’s the perfect way to add some healthy fats to breakfast.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1.5 tbsp. ground flax
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Protein
- 1/4 chopped apple
- pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon
side note: to create a vegan egg, mix 3 tbsp. water with 1 tbsp. ground flax, allowing to settle for 15 minutes. Best results are when placed in the fridge during that time.
So If you’re not a fan of Egg White Oats…
Or if you just don’t eat eggs for that matter, try this version next time .
