Healthy Toddler (and adult!) Approved Zucchini Muffins

My mom’s garden is bursting at the seams with zucchini and yellow squash…like seriously — if you want some it’s yours.

So lately, I’ve been trying to find different recipes involving squash, and remembered how much I loved zucchini bread as a kid.  Of course I headed to Running With Spoons blog because a) I’ve made her stuff before and it’s always delicious, b) my baby (ok she’s a toddler now, but I just can’t stop calling her my baby yet) loves it too, and c) Her recipes are healthy and easy.

She had several recipes that called for zucchini, and I decided to …

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

1. Hayley and Nicole were able to attend a cooking class at The Wellness Kitchen at the Four Seasons Westlake Village and not only did they enjoy amazing food, but they learned so much about healthy eating and cooking that they haven’t stopped raving about the class {and even went to the store the next day to stock up on the recommended foods!}.  You can read more about their experience here.

How to keep the pounds off this Holiday season {Work it Wednesday}

November starts the season of impending holiday binging on Turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie which then leads to Christmas parties full of cookies, wine, and even more pie.  Now don’t get us wrong, we love a good holiday party {have you seen the Schussel’s Fakesgiving party!?!}, but all these delicious treats leave us feeling a little…well bloated and guilty.  But never fear, we have a fun, effective, and calorie torching workout for you courtesy of 3 Elements Lifestyle gym in Thousand Oaks.

Join a Local Sports League – more fun, more friends! {local fitness}

Did you know that you can join adult sports leagues through the Conejo Recreation and Parks District?? [The Fall Basketball League just started, but you can register for the Fall Soccer League now. Check out here for more deets!]

My husband and brother-in-law Luke (Hayley’s husband) participated in the men’s soccer league last year, after first playing a few pickup games at the Pepper Tree Playfield Park in Newbury Park. A couple of the guys had invited them to join the league so they thought they’d give it a go.

[And from the wife of a player, I can …

Beach Body on a Budget {Bikini Series}

At the top of my New Year’s resolution list this year was getting into shape and eating healthier (OK, it’s actually at the top of my list EVERY year).  But, this year, I really wanted to do something I would actually stick to long term — instead of returning to my old habits come February 1st.

I somehow came across a women’s fitness company at the end of last year called Tone It Up, and started checking out their website and blog. I figured they must be doing something right since they had over a million followers — and not only do they …

Work-It-Wednesday: November Community Fitness Events {local fitness}

November is not only the month of leaves changing colors, fall weather and Thanksgiving– but it seems to also be the month of 5ks, 10ks, marathons and workout classes! Maybe it’s because we all know at the end of the month we will be eating a lot of turkey and stuffing (okay, and mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie…. and the list goes on).

But it’s so worth it! Especially when there’s so many different ways to get your Work-It-Wednesday on at all activity levels.

Whether you’re looking for a yoga class, your first 5k, or another marathon under your belt- the 805 definitely has what you …
