Happy Wednesday! Tomorrow, I fly home to see my family. I seem to be traveling a lot on the weekends and I so wish my husband could come with me this weekend but he has to stay here and work. Sadly.


This morning I completed a Zuzana Light workout that she posted back in April. I saw that she focused a lot on arms so I wanted to get my arm workout in along with some jump training to get my heart rate up.

Here is ZWOW #14. She explains every workout and you can watch her do the workout. She is a great instructor and this workout will kick your butt. Let me know if you try it!

ZWOW # 14
10 reps of each move- 5 rounds
Push Press
Back Curl Lunge
Preacher Curl
Weighted Lunge Jumps
Broad Jump Burpee
** I used 8lb weights, you can use what works for you.

This workout was really intense! I was drenched by the end of it and it only took me 20 minutes. Make sure to stretch for sure!


In honor of National Peanut Butter Cookie Day yesterday, I baked these cookies last night. You should check out the above link and see all the food holidays there are. Why haven’t I been celebrating these more often?! National Strawberry Shortcake Day is coming.. get ready for it.

If you haven’t noticed by now I am a lover of all things coconut and so is my husband. I decided to re-vamp the traditional peanut butter cookie and I hope that you enjoy!

How do you make your peanut butter cookies?

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

(1/2) cup of rolled oats

(1/4) cup of coconut oil- melted

(1) cup of peanut butter

(1) egg

(1/4) cup of sugar (you can add more according to your sweetness liking)


Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 6-8 minutes in the oven. You don’t want these to overcook.

Enjoy with a glass of almond milk.  Yum.

Husband approved.
