ode to jillian. {and a yummy recipe}

I know I've mentioned it before but several weeks back I started Jilllian Michaels' 30 Day Shred DVD ... And can I just say it is kickass. 
{pardon my french!}

I'm on Level 2 of the DVD and have been breaking a hardcore sweat during my 20 minute workouts with Jillian. 

Here's a clip of all 3 workouts ... 
I'm moving up to Level 3 on Monday and can I just say that I'm slightly TERRIFIED
{and by slight, I mean extremely}

The Mr. and I have also been trying to eat more healthy and I have discovered my new FAVE breakfast food ... 

the breakfast cookie
essentially overnight oatmeal but you get to say you're eating COOKIES for breakfast ... no way you can go wrong there! :) 

Recipe: 
1/3 C. oatmeal
1 Tbs. nut butter 
1/2 scoop protein powder
~ Mix all of these in a small bowl, using the back of the spoon to break up nut butter. Add in 1/8 C. of milk and mix until fully moistened. Then add in your fixins' {banana, raisins, cranberries, chocolate chips, almonds, pumpkin ... you get the point! can be whatever your heart desires!}
~ Pour mixture onto a small plate and press flat with a spoon. Refrigerate overnight and ENJOY in the AM! {via}

You know you wan to eat cookies for breakfast too! :) 

Happy Thursday Y'all! 
Do you eat breakfast? What's your fave breakfast food?

I have done this workout SOOO many times!!! I like the first one the best. She's kind of harsh, no? "I have 400 pound people that do jumping jacks, so can you."

Ummm,YUMMO on the breakfast cookie! Love that idea, especially since I am not a breakfast fan and can't ever seem to find something that sounds good. Love that you can make it ahead too. You just made my day! And way to go with the shred! (And please, go reward yourself for getting to the next level and buy one of the cute bikinis at Target for me):)

Yum! I think it's replace the oats with almond meal, throw in an egg and bake. Cookies for breakfast would be awesome!
