Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all having a good weekend! Mine is going well, although I have to say my throat is not so happy – still not showing much improvement although I did get it checked and at least it’s not strep! Just have to ride it out I guess… obnoxious.

You know what makes up for it though? This AMAZING Chocolate Protein Oatbran I’ve been eating since spring break a few weeks ago! I made it every single day while I was there and I’m FINALLY sharing the recipe today! First though, let’s take a look at last week’s workouts and then what I have coming up for this week. As you all remember, I started Best Body Boot Camp at the beginning of last week and so far so good! My only complaint – my legs are SO SORE! Haha it makes running harder (as does my throat) so I ended up skipping out on a LOT of running/cardio this week.

Sunday – Workout A (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio


Monday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)

Tuesday – Workout B (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio

WednesdayCardio intervals (on the BBC plan) REST DAY (my throat needed it)

ThursdayRest Day (maybe a yoga class or zumba…) ZUMBA! + 15 min elliptical

Friday5-6 mile run Workout C + 10 min elliptical + 15 min incline walking

SaturdayWorkout C (circuit style workout) “REST DAY”

As you can see, I still managed to get 5 official workouts in, including all three strength workouts for boot camp. I put “rest day” on Saturday in quotation marks because I spent 4 hours Friday and 6 hours Saturday on my feet walking around tying to find a dress for an event I’m going to. No luck, but I was exhausted and my feet hurt. Hence the bonus rest day on Saturday. When I got home I only had about 2.5 hours until I needed to leave and meet up with Lindsay to watch the Michigan game, so I took those hours to lay down. Throat + shopping + unexpectedly waking up at 4am three days in a row was not conducive to a workout. Haha it was conducive to watching Once Upon a Time/attempting to nap.

Here is what I have coming up for this week:

april 7th

Sunday – Workout A (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio

Monday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)

Tuesday – Workout B (strength) plus 20 minutes of steady state cardio

Wednesday – Cardio intervals (on the BBC plan)

Thursday – ZUMBA!

Friday – REST DAY

Saturday – Muddy Monk 10K!


Saturday is the Muddy Monk Double Down 10K/20K, which I’m nervous about since I haven’t actually been running too much recently, but I know it will be fun which is the whole point. It’s a 10K course and while you’re running you can choose to either stop at 10K or do the loop a second time for 20K. Obviously I’m only doing 10… but it’s a fun concept plus I LOVE trail races so it should be fun.

Now, what I know you were all waiting for – the recipe!

Chocolate Protein Oat Bran


1/3-1/2 Cup Oat Bran

1/2 cup milk (I use almond milk)

1 cup water (+ more if necessary)

1 tsp psyllium husk (optional)

1 T cocoa powder

1 scoop protein powder (can also use 3 egg whites or 1 whole egg)

1 packet stevia (2 if using psyllium husk)


Heat oat bran, milk and water on stove until it’s partially cooked (still plenty of liquid left). Mix in stevia, cocoa powder and psyllium husk. If using the psyllium husk, after a minute or so it will significantly thicken your oat bran. I often add a bit more water at this point so there is enough to help mix in the protein powder, usually about 1/4 cup. Add in protein powder and mix until at your desired thickness. Top with PB/AB and fruit, and serve!


If using the psyllium husk, it does give it a bit more of a “weird” taste, which is why I add an extra packet of stevia. Why do I add psyllium husk? Well, personally, it helps with my digestion, plus I like the bonus volume. You could also use flax or chia seeds instead if that’s what you have, since those are great sources of Omega 3s. Mess with mix-ins and toppings – this is a pretty basic recipe that you can do anything with!


Do you workout much when you have a sore throat/cough? How do you handle it?

Ever have chocolate for breakfast? What flavor oat bran would you invent if you could make any flavor?
