Bailey Bones

I just wanted to post a picture of the dog treats I made last weekend. I found the recipe at All, and they are called "Birthday Bones" The recipe is super easy and it makes a ton of treats (I usually double the recipe). My dog, Bailey, loves these and I love them because it's cheaper and healthier than store-bought treats.

It has been a fun and busy weekend for me, I went out with some friends on Friday night and Saturday night. I'm spending Sunday just relaxing, watching movies and just gearing up for the week ahead.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Happy Easter!

Is it really almost Easter?! 

Where has the year gone, anyway?? I am happy to be off work today in honor of Good Friday. I have high expectations of my day and that's assuming my productivity level increases. It's not looking good, although in my defense it is only 8:00 am and I am still waking up. First on my workout. I have to burn off the stupid cadbury eggs I just ate (yes I did...happy Easter to me) You know the ones - they have the crisp shell and the delicious chocolate inside?? Yum. So, breakfast - check. 

Hmmm..what do I plan to do with my extra day off?? 
One item on the agenda this weekend is trying to get my blog to look halfway decent - I'm talking about the huge gap at the top of the page. Not sure what I did there, but it needs to be fixed. stat. 
In addition, I am hoping to add some buttons for the 'about me' page, my 'workouts' and some recipes I've found. 

I also need to make my dog some more treats. I found a recipe on All Recipes for "Birthday Bones" and have been making them for my dog for a couple years now. He seems to like them (although he does eat anything..). They are super easy to make; wheat flour, natural peanut butter, milk, I add a touch of honey and there you go... roll the dough, get a cute cookie cutter and go to town, bake for 15 min or so. have healthy dog treats! It is so much better than buying treats in the store with God-knows-what in them. For the full recipe and directions click here

I mentioned in an earlier post I've been doing the ChaLEAN Extreme workouts - I'm already on month 2 and I do like it a lot. I feel like it is making me stronger, my muscles are more defined, especially in my abs. I guess one thing that really frustrates me is that I can't seem to lose the last stubborn 5-10 lbs! I know, you just read that I ate Cadbury eggs for breakfast and you're wondering why I am surprised.. while it is no secret that I have a massive sweet tooth, that is definitely the exception. Usually breakfast is a couple of wheat waffles and coffee. On weekends, I like to eat egg beaters with artichokes. Anyway,  back to CE. I have also been incorporating the Ease into 5K app into my workout regime, so that is helping as well. 
My next purchase will probably be Turbo Fire. I love Chalean, she is super motivating and keeps you going.

Before I go (I've been rambling, sorry!) I wanted to do a quick product rave... I've been reading about L'Oreal's Color Riche Lip Balm on the blogisphere so I finally bought a couple to try out for myself. The colors I have are: Rose Elixar and Caring Coral. 
One thing to note about these lip balms - the color is so sheer I really think any color will look good regardless of your skin tone, eye color, whatever.  I also love the fact they don't contain parabens and they have an SPF 15. They make your lips feel moisturized and soft, it will become like crack for your lips -

If you sign up on L'Oreal's website you can get a $1 off coupon AND Walgreens has these on sale, BOGO 50% off... 

That's all - I know this post was really long but it's been a while since I've posted. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!
