Labor Day

Happy Labor day!! I hope you all had a relaxing labor free day!

First off I have a confession...

I wear white after labor day..

phew.. glad I got that off my chest!

We started off the day with some egg scrambles and then it was off to the gym!


Brent and I both woke up early today to get our workouts in.
I completed a this super set workout along with a Body Combat class--which I haven't gone to in awhile.


Last nights dinner can not go unmentioned..
I chopped up lots of veggies!
Sweet potatoes..


And yellow squash...

Saute'd them in 2 tbs of olive oil. I added the sweet potatoes first and let them cook a little longer before adding the squash and zucchini.

For about 15 minutes. --Stir frequently!

I also chopped up some sweet potato fries for future meals! (one of my making healthy easy tips!)

I tossed a simple romaine lettuce salad with purple onion, cucumber and tomato drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette.

The steaming hot veggies--Done!! -- The steam kept fogging up my camera lens!

We grilled some salmon in tinfoil for 20 minutes and topped it off with some peach-kiwi salsa!! It added the perfect sweetness to the Alaskan Salmon! 

And to top of the meal with grilled corn on the cob! Can you believe this is the first cob I've had ALL summer! Yes.. I realize I have some major making up to do! It was SO good!! 

I baked the sweet potato fries and put them in a airtight container and popped it in the fridge for future meals! After I snagged one or two ;)

After a long day of running errands with the fam we are tired and I'm pretty sure its time to settle down for the night and watch some Bachelor Pad!--No worries, Brent is just as addicted to it as I am! Ha! Reality TV at its finest. 

Have a good night!
