Friday Favorite -- Sweet Peppers

I love these peppers for SO many reasons!  The main one is they are an easy snack that 2 out of 3 of my kids LOVE.  I also love to put them in my salad & other things.  They are just so yummy.

What is your go-to healthy snack?

P90X - update

I know I posted that I started P90X officially with the scheduled workouts, etc.  I'm still doing it & am in Week 3!!  Some days I feel like I am not getting enough of a workout & others "I'm done!" (like Joe in Shoulders, Bi's, Tri's)  :)  The 1st 3 weeks are identical.  Next week will be different then the 3 weeks after that all the same.  It's a great thing that I KNOW what I'm doing each day & don't really need to think about it.  BUT there are some down points to that.  One of them being......I know what I'm doing the next day & don't really need to think about it :)  I strongly believe we have to schedule our workouts as well as anything else that is important to us so I'm going with it.  If there is something I just really feel like doing (like more cardio) I schedule part of my day for that as well as the P90X that I am scheduled for.

I'm hoping at the end of this 90 days I will see a difference for sure.  At this point I have start logging my food at  I have never used this site before & am looking forward to it.  I have used Spark People but for some reason myfitnesspal feels less busy of a site & easier to figure things out.   Oh & they are both FREE!!!

My next goal after P90X?  Yes I have one!!  I want the Chalene Extreme workout!! 

What workout are you currently doing?  Have you ever done a workout like P90X?

My daughter has always loved playing with the toys her older brothers played with (the boys are 7 & 10 yrs older than her).  Cars, dinosaurs, etc.  She loves to play with dolls & girly things too but can I just say she is the envy of all the little boys at the baseball fields when they walk by & see her playing with Matchbox cars & dinosaurs.  Seriously.  Anyway, when I woke up this morning to do my workout, this is what I found:

Nope, I kept them there.  Love my little girl & these little signs of the fun she had the day before are perfectly fine with me :)

NEW Running shoes

Oh yes I did!!  Just ordered a new pair of running shoes.  I have been going back & forth about running again with all the foot problems I have been having but once a runner ALWAYS a runner.  For me anyway.  LOVE these too!  I have the same kind but in blue & now can't WAIT for the pink!!

What kind of running sneaker do you like?  Have you ever tried barefoot running?

Ok, I have begun the program P90X.  I have had the DVD program for quite a while but never actually did it with the schedule that comes with it. I have to admit.....I was nervous.  I have decided I need to mix things up a bit & give it a try.  I took BEFORE pictures and plan to take AFTER pictures & I will post (maybe) if there is a big difference.  I'm looking forward to it & I LOVE seeing how I am getting stronger with it and I'm only in my 2nd week! 

I have been working out for over 5 years now & have gotten to a level where I felt I was in a rut.  I like this program right now because I can up my weight & push myself to challenge myself.

Do you workout on a regular basis?  What do you do to challenge yourself?
