It was Vitamin A if you want to check it out. Next week I promise vitamin B1, Niacin will get some love. Yup, you should set your calendars.
This weekend we don't have any major plans. We are in the middle of a few big projects and I have a final on Thursday, so we are getting ahead on that. Dinner with Kyle's sister is on tap for tonight and a family workout and lunch for Father's Day.
|Minnie says hi.|
1. Gas Prices
It's because I'm closer to 30 then 20 that I can comment on economic issues such as this. I drive 120 miles a day to school and I had an extra trip to Tampa this week. I like saving money and $3.29 doesn't look so bad.
2. Overnight Oats in a Jar
If you are a blogger, you're down with the OO. You also then know what a special treat oats in a jar are. If you're new to this concept (hello, Mom) you should write this down. It's a gem.
2. Add 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup any kind of milk, 1T chia seeds, cinnamon
3. Let refrigerate overnight
4. In the morning you can top it any way you like and enjoy!
This morning I had mine with almond butter (not as good as peanut butter), blueberries, and a bit of Splenda.
3. The NBA Finals
This is a Kyle pick. I'm kinda torn on who I want to win. I always like an underdog and I'm a big KD fan...but when LeBron is clutch. He's clutch.

Deadlifts are the move of the week. Want a move that kills calories, lifts your butt, and makes you feel like jello the next day?
Go for the deadlifts. We have an awesome deadlift machine, but you can use dumbbells too or a straight bar. I have the worst time with the straight bar, because I have a long gorilla arms.
Kyle made me use the straight bar today and it was tough. Here's how it went:
- 15 deadlifts,
- 30 seconds of box jumps
- 10 deadlifts
- 20 seconds of box jumps
- 8 deadlifts
- 10 seconds of box jumps
When doing the deadlift try to "push" your butt back like you are sitting in a chair. Keep your abs tightened and engaged and your chest up.
5. Summer Songs
Do artists plan really upbeat and poppy songs for the summer? It always seems like each summer has an "anthem"....what do you think?
For me this year it would be "Call me Maybe"! It's catchy, but in a very fun way. It's also kinda sassy. I dig sassy.
I'm sure most of you have seen the Harvard baseball version of the song, but if you haven't watch this. Classic. A perfect Friday funny.
I can't talk about summer songs without a nod to the BEST SUMMER SONG EVER. And you may not agree....ready.....Summer Girls by LFO.
He likes girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch. Don't hate.
My BFF Bree & I were OBSESSED with this song in high school. We saw LFO in concert and my Mom caught a Twinkie they threw. At Bree's wedding we most definitely rocked out to LFO...and Hanson. Teen habits die hard.

What's your favorite summer song?
Love and Chinese food makes me sick,
