Hey y’all!! I hope everyone had a really nice Labor Day!! It was pretty relaxed around my house. We did end up going to my friend Brandi’s house for a couple hours for some swim time and hanging out. Before that, I hit the gym to try out a new circuit I put together. Let’s just say it was a good one and left my whooped the rest of the day. I can definitely tell I had not been putting full effort into my workouts the last month or so. Oops!!
Before heading to the gym I tried a new to me breakfast…..peanut butter and banana quesadilla. Oh my, it was so DELICIOUS I may have to eat another one today!!
After letting my breakfast settle I headed to the gym to get my workout on!
This is a great circuit for a home or gym workout. Just make sure you lift as heavy as you can with proper form!!
Dinner was pretty darn good up in my house last night! We may not have had an official Labor Day BBQ but we did fire up the grill. Teriyaki Chicken, honey roasted corn(from the frozen section) and green beans made my belly happy.
Last week I found out that my son will be in class with a child that has a peanut allergy. Darn…..no more PB & J’s which was his staple sandwich for school days. This has forced me to get creative and come up with some other lunch options instead. Good thing I remembered the blueberry oat muffins that I made a couple weeks ago. My kids devoured them within days and the best part, they were super healthy!! I made some changes from the original recipe this time and I think they came out even better!!
This time I used the following variations:
- vanilla yogurt instead of lemon
- coconut oil instead of canola
- I also added half a very ripe banana for extra moistness
I will add some fruit, yogurt and carrot sticks and my kids will have a nice balanced meal that is anything but boring!!
FALL WARDROBE WISH LIST
Now that Labor Day is officially behind us, I feel like I can really start focusing on all things Fall. That means I finally get to hang my mesh wreath, buy pumpkin flavored coffee and make my Fall clothing wish list!!
Sunday I did a bit of shopping but that only touched on what I want to add to my wardrobe for the Fall season. Being that it doesn’t start to cool off here for another 6 weeks or so I will have plenty of time to shop and gather up these pieces. Let’s hope they aren’t too hard to find!
