Finally FRIDAY!!

Okay, so I realize yesterday I didn't do even one food post! My apologies.. it was a whirlwind of a day.. but I didn't make anything out of the ordinary.. so you didn't miss much :) due to the fact we were super low on groceries.. but I went this morning post workout.. so I'm back in the game!

Although I am still out of vanilla protein.. seriously what is a girl to do?!!!

Have chocolate!!?

Peanut butter Cup oats!!

1/2 C of old fashioned oats
1/2 scoop of chocolate whey gourmet by ELITE
1 tbs of cocoa
1tbs or so of freshly ground P.B
sprinkled with carob chips.. (although I thought about that 1/2 way not pictured)

yep.. its what I had for breakfast and I enjoyed every heaping spoonful :)

OH and yes.. I FINALLY got my new KICKS yesterday!!

Long overdue!! Seriously I think it has been about a year since I bought new Running shoes!! Because of my pregnancy I wasn't putting enough miles on my old shoes.. but they are now retired.. 
They are the K-Swiss kona's
 Fancy schmancy eh?

I was so excited I strapped them on and the babies and I went for a 5 mile run..

Do you like them??
They are super comfy and my feet felt fab during the run!! I could of run for 100 miles...5 more miles ;) 
p.s the weather outside is my favorite this time of the year!!

I love love love all the red!! the iphone of course doesn't do this ANY justice..but the colors were so rich.. FALL is definantly in the air!

We even saw a few familiar friends along the way.. can you see all 3?

and of course had to stop and say happy birthday to my mom..

(a little sweat apparently got on the lens of the iphone..)

I ordered one more.. and got a few extra..

  1. I wanna win! Yay for giveaways! So my favorite baby thing is the Bumbo so far, seriously a lifesaver for baby Brae!

  2. Hi my name is Brooke. I found your blog through a friend and can't stop reading it!! As an avid running and exercise geek I love the tips about food and different exercise routines you post. I hope you don't mind that I read it. If you do please tell me to stop and I promise I will! Also, my blog is!
    p.s. I put a link on my blog to yours.

  3. I also found your blog through a friend and love it! I had a baby in September and am working on losing the last few pounds and love all of your exercises and food. Oh and my favorite baby thing is the bobby pillow :)

  4. I didn't know what to become a fan of on facebook. And I did link you on my blog

  5. Hey!! So love the at home exercises!! They are killer! And I love all of your recipes. But I have two favorite baby products I love them both I couldn't just say one. Aden & Anais baby blankets, the are so big but really breathable, great for swaddling. And I also LOVE johnsons bedtime bath and lotion! It is magic and puts my babe right to sleep!

  6. I found your blog through a friend as well, I also had a baby in July and when I saw your blog it got me so motivated to get back in shape. I LOVE the JJCOLE muslin blankets they are the best. I put a link on my blog. but I don't know what I need to look up to become a fan on facebook!

  7. Favorite baby product? I love my stroller car-seat combo. I loved it so much (it's so tiny, folds tiny, so light, easy to carry) that I bought the double stroller (though I don't think it would fit 2 car seats at the same time)! The brand is Combi. I just hate lugging around horribly heavy strollers! And, as I'm sure you already know...of course there's a link to your blog on mine!! :) (does that count as my 2 entries? Haha!)

  8. My favorite baby product happened to be the snugli carriers. Super cute!

  9. candice! i think your blog is so cute. i am not going to lie when i first read it i thought there is no way i can do some of the things you do or eat some of the things you make but i find myself really enjoying reading your blog and it makes me feel more motivated to eat healthier! it took me a long time to loose all the baby weight from my sweet little man because i wasn't motivated and didn't exactly know where to start (your blog would have been super awesome 20 months ago!) but i feel like your blog is so helpful and honest and that's what i need. thanks for starting this and i look forward to many more posts!

    by the way my favorite baby product changes with age but as of right now i am LOVING aden & anais blankets. they are caydens FAVORITES and they are so easy to take along!

  10. Okay I found your facebook page and I am now a fan!!!
