Oh HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂
I don’t go in to work until noon today, so I decided to take advantage of this morning and SLEEP IN! I’ve been getting up early every day this week and have gotten in either a run or a kettlebell class. So, I decided today will be my rest day this week 🙂 Nothing like getting almost 9 hours of sleep to kick of your Friday morning!
I have many things to tackle that will sure give me a good workout this morning without even going to the gym. The grocery store (SuperBowl Party), mop and sweep, and clean the bathroom 🙂
I was starving this morning and couldn’t wait to indulge in a big bowl of oats 🙂
I was kind of lazy with the actually oats part and just made a packet of TJ’s instant oats. But the toppings made up for it.
- Love Crunch
- chia seeds
- sliced almonds
MMMM…good! I was still pretty hungry so I just had a piece of Ezekiel Toast and PB 🙂
FIT FRIDAY BAKING (FFB)
Today’s treat was inspired by Tina over at Carrots N’ Cake. When I saw that her cookies had a little bit of Sea Salt on them, I just knew I had to make some soon!
The best part is they make almost 3 dozen and I had everything on hand!
I just changed up a few things and they came out so tasty. Hubby even liked them 🙂

I am still in need of some more Fit Friday Baking recipes, so send them my way 🙂
Todayâ€™s Love Dare
Contact your spouse sometime during
the business of the day. Have no agenda
other than asking how he or she
is doing and if there is anything
you could do for them.
Question: Do you regularly call people more or text them?
I am a huge text and email kind of person and I really want to start writing more snail mail to friends and family.
