Pumpkin Martini’s and Stuffed Peppers

Just a quick post to share a fun Fall drink & an awesome stuffed pepper recipe 🙂

Here’s what the pumpkin cheesecake martini looks like

Pumpkin Martini

The doTERRA diffuser you see in this pic can be purchased at my doTERRA site here under accessories: http://www.mydoterra.com/carolelaney/

I use this diffuser daily pumping a variety of healing oils into the air. I LOVE the On Guard for when clients are here and I use the Serenity nightly when going to bed. If you want to learn about oils be sure to register for the free oil class on 12/07 🙂

Here’s all of the ingredients for that Pumpkin Martini 😉

I put my Betty Crocker hat on this afternoon & made some amazing stuffed green peppers!

An easy to make dinner and a fun martini to celebrate this beautiful Fall day! Hope your weekend is filled with fun & laughter 🙂

KILLER WOD

Today I needed something fast & furious in my workout so I put together this 30 minute AMRAP. LOVED it & can’t wait to do it again 🙂

CrossFit Medina Ohio

This is one of those workouts that you’ll still be sweating 30 minutes after you’re done. I will definitely add this to my must do’s and next time work on increasing my rounds instead of increasing the weight. I’m setting a goal of 16 rounds with less screwing around 😉 Too much dancing to “Angie’s Mix” sidetracked me but we’ll chalk that up to some extra cardio! lol

After this WOD I put together this great tasting juice:

Juicing

It’s so easy to make… Just throw together two fuji apples, one large cucumber, a chunk of ginger and a handful of organic baby carrots.

Juicing Recipes

If you haven’t tried juicing yet you just might want to ask Santa for a juicer. I just love mine and I use it daily 🙂

And don’t forget about the October prize giveaway. Anyone can send me a pic and be entered into the drawing. It works like this:

Since October is breast cancer month I have attached a bib for you to print and wear while you workout. For every time you exercise in honor/memory of someone and send me a pic (you MUST send me a pic of you with the bib on working out) your name will be entered into our giveaway. Example: Workout 3 times, 3 different people/bibs, send 3 pics = 3 entries in the giveaway. 3 – 2 – 1 – GO!!

CrossFit Girls CrossFit GirlsCrossFit Girls

Here’s the bib in PDF form: breast cancer month

You can email me as many pics as you want and your name will be entered EACH time you send a pic 🙂 Drawing will be during our Halloween class on October 31 at 6:00PM  – – – – – – Get Moving!!

Merrell BAREFOOT Shoes

A special THANK YOU to Second Sole in Medina OH. A couple of weeks ago they invited a few of us local Trainers to the store to view store inventory & learn a little bit about the products available to our clients.

Second Sole Medina OH

The store is beautiful and they have a full line of quality athletic wear, a fantastic variety of really cool athletic shoes, items for plantar fasciitis & they even carry foam rollers!

Second Sole Medina

The Merrell Shoe Rep was there to educate us about the newest shoes available for minimalist. He even gave us a free pair to take home and try them in our daily activities. The past couple weeks I have worn them cycling, rowing, jumping, walking, crossfitting, kettlebelling and running to the grocery store. LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!

MERRELL BAREFOOT

These minimalist shoes are a cross between barefoot shoes and traditional running shoes. They are a great way for runners to ease into barefoot running. They are extremely lightweight construction with little to no arch support and a minimal heel height of 4-8mm to encourage a natural running motion and a midfoot strike to improve posture. They are helpful in strengthening those unused foot & leg muscles & I really like that they offer some cushioning and flex.

We also got a really cool water bottle & a pair of running socks. The water bottle is a perfect size for fitting in my bike holder and the socks have been my new favorite because the compression feels like they’re ‘hugging’ my feet 😉 LOVE them!

If you need anything related to fitness go over to Second Sole & check them out. Tell Joanie that Carole sent you & she’ll give you 10% off your purchase just for mentioning my name. You’ll then get put in the computer & receive 10% off all future purchases for life 🙂

And remember… The Only Difference Between A Good Day & A Bad Day Is Your ATTITUDE!
