Friday Favorites

Rather than a 5 Things Friday post, I’m calling it Friday Favorites. Mostly because I don’t have 5 things and second, because I want to join the Friday Favorites Link-up hosted by Life In Leggings.

Knock Knock Journals – the inner truth series
Seriously, I don’t think I have to explain why I love these journals. They are so fun and unexpected. Who wouldn’t love journaling with one of these babies?! Here are two of my favorites.


Popcorn
I’m pretty sure I’ve expressed my obsession with popcorn on this blog, but if not I. Love. Popcorn. We have a Family Movie Night weekly tradition and it always involves popcorn. I took my littles to the movies last weekend just because I was craving movie theater popcorn. Safe to say, “my name is Megan and I’m a popcorn-aholic”…

popcornAgusta Active Duffel Bag
I won this bag from a #SweatPink Challenge earlier this year. I love it! It is the perfect size for a gym bag (I have it crammed full of stuff now because I insist on using it as an overnight bag as well). It has a separated compartment for shoes or sweaty gym clothes and it’s just so fun! PS: it also comes in pink!Okay, I know this is short and sweet, but it’s what I’m loving right at THIS moment! Have a good weekend! What were your favorites from the week?

Until Next Time!

Linking Up With #TheFitDish

The Fit Dish with Jill Conyers and Jessica Joy

Hi everyone! Today I’m linking up with Jill Conyers and Jessica Joy on The Fit Dish! Today’s optional topic is to share my favorite healthy recipe. While this is not necessarily my favorite (I just tried it for the first time yesterday), it is a healthy snack, they are pretty delicious, and definitely worth sharing! 

A little background…..We put on a 5K/10K race Saturday and had a lot of bananas left afterwards so I googled “healthy banana recipes” and found one for 3 ingredient banana cookies. Yep, I said THREE ingredients! I adapted the recipe from The Burlap Bag via Pinterest

  1. Bananas (I used 3 smaller size ones)
  2. Quick Oats – 1 cup (more or less if your dough is sticky)
  3. Chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)

**confession: I added about a teaspoon of brown sugar and a handful of raisins because that’s just how I roll

That’s it, my friends (unless you want to add extras like raisins, cinnamon, nuts, maybe peanut butter…)

Then you just bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Delish!

My husband said they are good, but that you can’t really call them cookies. 

Simply dump the oats on top of the bananas and mush!

They don’t look pretty, but they are delish!

 

I need to work on my food photography skills, but you get the gist that these “cookies” are super easy to make!

Have you made these before? What are some of your favorite banana recipes?

Until Next Time,

Five Things Friday: Blogging Goals

Blogging Goals

Even though I’ve had my blog for several years, I still consider myself a newbie to blogging. First of all, I haven’t really focused on blogging until this past year. Before that, it was just a random outlet for me. Now, I’m focused and really want to use my blog to share my passion for fitness, wellness, and beauty with others.

With that in mind and keeping with my recent theme of Resolutions and Goals, I thought I’d do my Friday Five on blogging goals for the upcoming year.
