Chickpeas & Lorna Jane

I recently participated in the #HolidayMobbing Twitter Party with Fit Approach & Fit Mob and HEYO!!! I WON!  I love twitter parties! They are fast and furious, inspiring, and fun, and you meet new awesome people to follow, and sometimes you WIN awesome stuff like a $50 Lorna Jane Giftcard and the Lorna Jane 2015 Diary!

10836456_320684171457956_211701094_nI was so excited when I got my diary in the mail! It is awesome! Such a great way to prepare to be successful for 2015! Plus it helps get organized with a calendar, set goals, and it has awesome inspiration and recipes in it!

I love this quote found in the book!

10833580_320684168124623_2040334585_nWhat a genius quote, just says it like it is! 

Either dream about your dreams, or get up and chase them! 

I think I love that quote so much because that is exactly what I finally did when becoming a Yoga instructor! It was something I always said One Day I would do.  Then finally I just did it! One Day is NOT ON A CALENDAR! So instead of saying one day, set a date on a calendar and make your dreams happen! Ever since I stepped out towards that one dream of mine, I feel like so many other awesome things have fallen into place for me, and I love it! 

I also am loving the recipes in the Diary! Here's one I made recently and love this idea as an on-the-go snack for me, and once my son gets a little older, for him too! In the book, they made these as a salad topper, but I made them just as a snack to pop in your mouth!

chickpeas

It's so easy! Here's how you make them:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, Drain the chickpeas, Make a mixture of 1 teaspoon  of each (cumin, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper), lightly coat chickpeas in a bowl with Olive Oil, sprinkle mixture over peas and coat. Lay them on a baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes. The chickpeas should come out crispy.

Enjoy these at home, on a salad, while you are out and about and get hungry, or take them with you while you travel over the holidays, and snack on these instead of convenient store snacks!

Now, back to my awesome gift card! Thanks to Fit Approach & Fit Mob, I snagged the Lorna Jane Amy F/L Tight while they were only $50!! And FREE Shipping! I have several colored tights, but no black, so I was looking for a classic black tight that I could wear in the gym, to Yoga class, or out on the town!

Let me just tell you, these are the PERFECT tights!!

Here I am working out in them at Abilene Fit4Mom Stroller Strides workout! They are incredible!

The waist band on the leggings are so comfortable and don't dig into me.  They have a draw strong that gently makes them tighter if needed, and they aren't always sagging when I move.  A lot of tights when I'm doing an active workout I am always pulling up! These are not like that.  Plus they have lines down the back and side that really flatter the body. Oh and did I mention they are so comfortable and the fabric feels amazing!

And here I am wearing the same leggings at our town's Christmas Parade this week! I love how versatile they are and how easily they go from the gym to the street! So if you need new tights, check these out!

Thanks Fit Approach, Fit Mob, and Lorna Jane for the awesome gift card, and a great Twitter Party!
