2. "Overhead Squat-athon"

3."Filthy Fifty"...get in teams of 2...FIND SOMEONE NEW to workout with so you dont get all chatty!

you can do these in any order that you would like...the jumping pull-ups can be done at the Smith machine and should be done in teams of 2...I would start with one team, tag another team when you are ready to move on.
How’s your nutrition this week? Are you getting the results that you want? Are you reaching your goal?
how wonderful!
One of my favorite things to do is grow a little garden, it is small, but, I love it.  My children help me pick out the plants.  We go to the nursery and decide what to grow for the summer season and we plant together. We work on weeding, watering and upkeep.  This year, we planted sweet potatoes, having no clue how it was going to turn out! Imagine our excitement when these GIANT sweet potatoes started poking out of the ground this fall! So, I am on a mad hunt for recipes that I can use these amazing sweet root vegetables.
Did you know sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants?
Did you know that it is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), a very good source of vitamin C and manganese, and a good source of copper, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and iron.
Sweet potato, baked, with skin has 95.39 calories!

cherry tomatoes still growing in Mid-October!

By the way, its so wonderful to be still getting tomatoes in October!
