I hit the gym HARD tonight for a couple reasons…

1. I wanted to test drive the new Champion Long & Lean Workout T-shirt I got at Target yesterday!

You guys gave me a TON of ideas as to where and what I should buy for decent, inexpensive workout clothes, and several of you mentioned this shirt. While I was still uber-sweaty after my workout tonight, this guy definitely stayed dryer longer and was much lighter when wet then a cotton t-shirt. Win!

Also I have this thing about wearing tight, short shirts, so the “long and lean” style was super comfy. Oh, and it was only $9.99. I could get into this!!!

2. I ate a million chocolate chip cookies last night. No seriously, I did. It was a good reminder as to why I don’t bake often and/or keep sweets in the house. BECAUSE I WILL DEMOLISH THEM ALL! I have ZERO self control around sugar…

My 30-20-10 workout made me feel better!

30 minutes treadmill @ 7.0: 3.5 miles

20 minutes step mill @ level 7: 1 mile

10 minutes elliptical @ level 5: I forgot to look…

Made my workout sesh FLY I’m telling you. Also, I was audibly laughing on the treadmill to That 70s Show circa 5:30. Sorry to my neighbors… :)

Soooo dinner was seriously epic tonight. Take a hike Pumpkin Pie Pancakes – Pumpkin Pie French Toast is the new sheriff in town. Seeeeeeriously!

The secret ingredients that TOTALLY made the difference was the vanilla coffee creamer. It made the french toast creamy and sinfully sweet.

The cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice totally shined through and the whole thing tasted like luscious, luxurious pumpkin pie!

Pumpkin pie that’s been drizzled with maple syrup, mind you. :) I will be repeating this on a cold winter morning!!
