Blueberry Oatmeal Crisp

One of my weaknesses is my sweet tooth, so I have been searching lots lately to find some yummy treats that are healthy too. This recipe is about as good as it gets! You don’t have to feel guilty eating seconds…or thirds 🙂
Blueberry Crisp:
-1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
-1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
– 2 eggs
-3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
-1 3/4 cup almond milk
-2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp baking powder
-2 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp nutmeg (yum!)
-3/4 tsp sea salt
-2 cups oats
Oven at 375. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and wet ones in another. Leave the blueberries out. Grease a 9 inch baking dish (or whatever you have because let’s face it most of us in college just use whatever) with some butter or coconut oil. Place 1/2 cup blueberries on the bottom and then pour dry mixture over berries. Pour wet mixture over that and shake shake shake it so it sifts down through the oats. Place the other 1/2 cup blueberries on top and sprinkle with some coconut sugar on top if you would like it a little extra sweet. Bake for 42 minutes. Eat up! I served it with a scoop of plain greek yogurt and drizzle maple syrup on top.

Tricep Shredder

Happy July 3rd! Tomorrow is literally my second favorite holiday next to Christmas and I am so excited to make some new traditions here in Hawaii. This is my first 4th not spent in Utah, and I am a little nostalgic for all the memories. To me, it’s the peak of summer and has everything I love all wrapped into one: yummy food, family, friends, warm summer nights, and fireworks! Before you start your 4th of July shenanigans, try out this tricep shredding workout with a little bit of chest added in. 

Warm up:
1 mile run at speed 7
Superset #1: 
-Tricep extensions: I used a 20 lb db (12 reps)
-Straight leg lifts (12 reps)
Do this 3 sets through. 

Tricep dips (12 reps)- 3 sets through.

Superset #2: 
-Skullcrushers: I did 20 lbs plus the bar (12 reps)
-Close chest press (12 reps)
Do this 3 sets through. 

Burnout to finish:
Tricep pushups (keep elbows by rib cage) until failure. 
Finish with a 1 minute plank! Now go light off some sparklers!!
