Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal Seduction in the KitchenDid you ever feel like your on the verge of starting something new? I have “things” going on in my life right now from personal things to work, to starting the recipe submission site Recipentrest. It feels like I am on the verge of starting something new. I truly am starting a new chapter in my life. Actually, I know on the 25th of April, I am starting something new and it will be a new chapter in my life.

I decided I want to take the bull by the horns. I spent a lot of time in the shadows waiting for things. It got me nowhere, so I am tired of waiting. I got my eyes opened the other day on Facebook, on my personal page, not Seduction in the Kitchen’s Fan page. All I did was post a photo of my hair. I wanted to do a makeover, so I did a very subtle ombre effect, but I did a little too subtle and all I did was post this:

Capture

 

What surprised me what I got a message, how need make that my profile picture and as you can see some saying how pretty I am. I am the first person to admit, I don’t think I am pretty. My weight is what keeps me down. I have had so many guys reject me because I am fat, so I don’t think I am pretty. So I took the advice and made that my profile picture, I got 28 likes for it as my profile picture. I never get that many likes for my profile pictures.

It made me realize, I need to break out the shadows and just take the bull by the horns. Be me and if someone doesn’t like it, it is them. I have let rejection, hurt and pain keep me hidden. I need to break from that. It is hard I admit it has to do with self-esteem. I have come a long way in my self-esteem. My ex-husband, he made me feel like I was ugly, he would not even go out in public with me, in fact, he really did not want anyone to know I was married to him. When you go through abuse like that, your self-esteem suffers. With that photo and all the people just liking it and commenting how pretty I am. It really helped me with feeling pretty.

I have been trying to lose weight and that helps too with self-esteem, especially when you get told you would be a knock out if you lost weight. Yes, I did have a date tell me that. Hey what can I say, it these Mediterranean professional guys that say this to me. I know it my weakness, that is the type of guy I go for. I know I need to break from that. Why I want to start new chapters. Realizing it too is the being on the verge of starting something new.

Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal | Seduction in the Kitchen

As I been eating healthier as part the trying to lose weight, I come to come to love baked oatmeal. I always liked oatmeal, but with baked oatmeal, I found ways to make with more protein, like this one, or cut the sugar down like I did with the Pineapple Blueberry Oatmeal. I wanted to do a protein based oatmeal when I spotted peanut butter granola at the store. Tinkering around with it, I came up with a nice power protein baked oatmeal I love on Sunday mornings.
