SATURDAY!!! Gotta love weekends :)

Hello there, bloggies!! Getting right down to business (quickie post today!)...

~Daily Eats~
Breakie: My day started at 4:45 a.m...had to be outta the house by 5. :/ Super quick, super yummy, super filling (suprisingly!) breakie this a.m.!

O. My. Gosh. SOOO good!! 1/2 c old fashioned oats, skim milk poured over top, 2 big blobs of crunchy almond butter! A MUST TRY for quick mornings!


Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread with almond butter and a slice of swiss cheese with a local gala apple...YUM!!

Snack: A banana....a VERY over-ripe banana....just the way I like 'em! :)
Snack: Unsalted peanuts
Snack: A pear
Snack: so I made zucchini bread the other is sooooo yummy! All natural ingredients (you know me!) and 100% whole wheat. Honey adds just enough sweetness without using any sugar! :D I had a slice of this for snackage!

~Fitness is Fun!~
Squats. Need I say more? Legs, butt, calves, and even a little abs! These are deff a serious strength move!
Rockstar jumps. Begin in a medium-low squat position. Jump off the floor as high as you can, bringing your bent knees behind you (like a double-legged butt kick). These are hard, so work up to as many as you can, but start off slow. These revv your metabolism and get your heart pumping!

My knee has been feeling so much better lately. I walked on it ALOT the past two days...NO CRUTCHES!! It's bothering me a little bit now, but overall it's much better than it was last week at this time.
IT'S HALLOWEEN EVE PEOPLES!!!!!!!!!!  SO excited! I love halloween! Can't wait to share my holiday-appropriate recipes and workout ideas!! ;)

Hope everyone has a good rest of your Saturday! Stay warm and stay healthy!
