Bake up a batch of these Gluten Free Cherry White Chocolate Chia Cookies this weekend and freeze some off for the next time you need a little sweet-something! Alrighty guys, I know we are all crazy busy today. I am in the middle of getting a birthday and Halloween stuff ready for my crazy crew. A little guy with a birthday on Halloween means I am learning to embrace the holiday, it has never been my favorite, and make it a super fun day. Which also means I have very little time to get in a workout, it also means I am super stressed and the best thing I can do for my sanity is sneak in at least a little bit of a workout. So today I am all about a quick but effective workout you can do at home.

Nichole here....those cookies sound fantastic. I am always looking for new ideas in my allergy house. Well, we have gotten our healthy treat, now let's talk about the other side of being healthy....time to get moving!

I will be honest, my warm up today will mostly consist of wrestling the youngest one into a nap. After that I know I better make it as fast as possible.

10 burpees
20 pushups
30 squat hops
40 alternating forward lunges
50 situps
40 dips
30 lunge hop switches
20 squats
10 burpees

Push hard and make every rep count. If you can do it with a friend that is even better. You guys can race and make sure the other is doing it without slacking or cheating.


 Happy Friday!
 Much Love and Peace~
 Nichole and Ruthie
