Quick post/survived office goodies/Day 26

So, I mentioned I got exercise DVD’s from the library. I saved the hardest one for the last night before I had to return them for good reason….It was Jillian Michaels! I really didn’t pay attention to which one it was at the time, but when I grabbed it, my heart sank a little –…

Homemade no bake granola/Day 25

My intention was to make granola bars – but they wouldn’t stick together so it became granola instead! I followed a few other recipes for inspiration and used what I had on hand. I will have to be careful though because this stuff tastes amazing!! Jenn’s no bake granola 1/2 cup peanut butter (I used…

Neely’s BBQ chicken salad/Iron Yoga/Day 24

My lunch inspiration came from The Neely’s on the Food Network. I watched one of their programs over the weekend and even though most of the things they make are not so healthy – I made their signature rub. It’s super easy – just 3 ingredients. They use this rub on chicken, steak, potatoes, ribs,…

Close game/I ate spaghetti in my basement/Day 18

It was a nail biter of a game for my 9 year daughter’s softball game last night. It was the 2nd playoff game, if we lost then the season was over… We started out kind of slow, the other team scored 6 runs to our zero runs. The 4th inning, we rally back, making 5…

The Hundred Workout/Day 17

So in a quest to mix things up workout wise, I did a workout called The Hundred Workout – and this is what it entails: My sister e-mailed me this workout last week and so I thought I would give it a try. It seemed like it would be easy enough – ummm.. it was…
