To start...drum roll please.....dddddddddddddrrrrrrrrrr....1 more lb gone...wohoo!!! I could of lost more, but my weekends are bad for me. It starts on Friday night and continues through Sunday night...mindless snacking and not watching the portion sizes. It's only because of working out so much more that I was able to lose 1 lb...i need to get at it on the weekend also so i can lose that much more :)
As most of you know I love my oatmeal :) And love to experiment with it. At one time, not all that long ago, i would put 1/4 cup of sugar in my oatmeal...that's ALOT of sugar!!! So I decided to try some concoctions...lol.
Here is a little break down of what I am putting in my oatmeal...by serving size.
1/4 c Sugar-50 g of Carbohydrates all of which is sugar (duh...lol) and 192 calories
1 Tbsp Sweetened Condensed Milk-11 g of carbohydrates all of which is sugar and 65 calories
1 Tbsp Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chips-9 g of Carbohydrate, 8 of which are sugar and 70 calories
1 Tbsp Caramel Topping-15 g of Carbohydrates 6 of which are sugar and 60 calories
So I have moved away from the sugar and sweetening with other things that yes, have sugar, but not over the top either.
Here is a list of some of my favorite combos :)
