My 5 Must Have Fitness Items and Some Raw Crackers!

Hey there fitness peeps!  Thursday already, can you believe it? 

Fitness Cheerleader has asked us to share what 5 items we MUST have when we work out.  For me, these are the usual:

1.  Water – Every morning, I go to the cafeteria at work and get a cup with ice and water.  This will be refilled at a minimum of 4 times a day (the cup is about 36 ounces).

2. My weight lifting gloves – I know, calluses are sooo bad a$$, but for this gal, soft hands are a must.

3. Notebook (under the gloves in the picture) – I like to see progress in my weight training, so I always write down what weight I use and how may reps I perform.  I always have a plan of attack for the week and know what workout I will be doing.  Before I head to the gym, I write the exercises I will be doing in my book.  When I am done, it looks like this:

4. iPhone and armband – I know, I know, this is actually 2 items. If I had to choose, of course I could just shove my iPhone in my sports bra. So there.

5. Sneaks – I prefer Asics or New Balance because I am an underpronator.  Do I sound all smart now?  Just means I roll my feet out when I run…. 🙂

So, there you have it.  The things that I cannot live without at the gym.  What 5 items can YOU not live without?

On another note, I just wanted to show you a recipe that I am dying to try.  Remember when I went to the raw food restaraunt?  I ended up buying some raw veggie crackers that were just delicious.  I have been looking for websites that show how I can replicate these little goodies.  I think I found it!!!!  Carrie from Carrie on Vegan has a really great way to make them.  Look at these – do they not look awesome? 

AND, my hubby has one of those Jack LaLane juicers (remember that infomercial?) that has been collecting dust in the cabinet.  I am going to dust that baby off and give it a whirl.  I will let you know how it goes. 

Until then, have a healthy and happy day!
