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.

Fitness

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
Thrusters
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!

Flavor

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)

Steps

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.
