Brooke needs her own Twitter account and cookie salad recipe.

Brooke sent out a tweet this morning.  I was getting ready and she had my phone for one minute.  ONE minute.   The phone was on but somehow she got into the Twitter app, composed a tweet and sent it out.  I noticed right as she was pushing send.  

I told Billy about it and he said he would set up an account for her when he gets home.  Let me know if you are interested in following her.

I did my pool running workout followed by ATTEMPTING this workout.  I was able to do 4 out of 7 of the super sets.  It is so hard! My goal is to be able to do all 7 some day:)

An example of one of the super sets:

Some friends came over for lunch.  Egg salad sandwich (I forget how much I love these) and a quinoa salad.

 I made my favorite PB no-bake cookies.

And a quick hello from Brooke… she is crawling all over the place now.  I personally think she has great form.

I feel really bad about the last post.  I mentioned that we had cookie salad and I didn’t give you the recipe.  That was insensitive of me to tell you about something so great and leave you hanging.  My friend sent me the recipe:

 2 cups buttermilk

1 5.1 oz vanilla pudding mix

1 large 16 oz tub of cool whip

1 20 oz can of pineapple tidbits

` regular can of mandarin oranges

1 pk of Keebler elf fudge striped shortbread cookies.

Mix the buttermilk and pudding together.  Then add the cool whip.  Add everything else and make sure to drain the cans really well.Cut the cookies into small or big pieces depending on how you prefer.  I like them cut into about 6 pieces per cookie.

Tonight Im getting plenty of rest because I’ve got my long run tomorrow! (YAY) Workouts lately haven’t been to hard but a few nights ago I went to hot yoga and that is no joke! I felt like a river was pouring off my body. The last cookie I ate was a chocolate crinkle cookie. It rocked.

Dinner with grandma and grandpa tonight. Third cake smash of the week for Monkey! Then headed to the park to enjoy beautiful weather before rain comes in. My husband and I do this Spartan strength workout that kicks my butt every time. Lots of squat, lunge, and push-up moves. Last cookie I ate was one of my daughter’s Earth’s Best cinnamon cookies. Surprisingly good! Have a great weekend!

Yay for cake smashing! Hope you’re taking lots of pics!
My last cookie was 2 seconds ago- Kashi Almond Butter Chocokate Chip

I would definitely follow Brooke on twitter! ;)
The last cookie I ate was definitely a girl scout cookie – a frozen thin mint!

Hahaha! That workout gets a million times easier after a few tries. I hope it doesn’t hurt you too bad. The first time I did it, the next day I could barely move!

Wait until Brooke posts pictures you don’t want to share on FaceBook. :) Tonight we are celebrating my daughters 3rd birthday with friends. Pizza and beer!!! Well not for the kids. The last time I had a hard workout was the day after the Boston Bombing. I ran my heart and legs out that day. I’ve done my rowing machine a couple of times and I’m doing a Pushup, Plank and Squat challenge so I think I’md doing pretty good in that area. The last kind of cookie I ate was chocolate chip. Your sandwich looks amazing by the way!

I hope it’s a hot date ;-) Brooke’s form is flawless. Last hard workout = our race in Feb but I am trying crossfit Tuesday! Pray hard haha.

Time for my second workout of the day tonight. And, yay! Brooke is crawling! She is too adorable!!

Brooke is just the cutest thing! My last hardest workout was a 5k. I know that’s super easy for some people, but it was the first time I’ve ever run that far, so I was excited!

Reply

Congrats on that 5k!

Brooke is going to be a Twitter celeb!

Ha!! You better be careful….my friend’s baby bought a $30 app in 30 seconds! The is a child proof setting in your phone’s setting. Just an FYI.

Brooke has the cutest dimples on the back of her hands!

I’m pretty good about getting my strength training in. I lifted three times this week.

Reply

Oh I’m so glad you put up the recipe! It sounds delicious!
I would totally follow Brookie girl! Speaking of Twitter, I didn’t know you had one! Consider yourself followed by this girl :)
I had a sugar cookie with sprinkles yesterday. Yum!

It’s fish night with my hubby and I and probably a movie at home. I just volunteered to work tomorrow so I’ll be in bed early tonight.

Reply

Haha Brooke is crazy talented with the electronics! Maybe she can be your manager?!

My last hard workout was a strength workout from Best Body Bootcamp. Ouch!
The last cookie I had was not amazing. It was a gluten free maple one. Maple just doesn’t do it for me!

Have a fun date!

Last hard workout and strength: My first BodyPump. Holy wow, I was not expecting it to be that intense.

Brooke’s form is coming together really well. I think she’ll be a first class runner when she’s 2 years!

Everyone has been talking about cookies today :shock: And here’s me, not even really remembering the last time I had one. BUT! I’ll be changing that tonight. I plan on whipping up a batch of my favorite cookies – chocolate chip oatmeal – so I’ve got a date with my stove tonight ;)

Reply

Just grocery shopping tonight (I know, I’m wild for a Friday night). But we’re going to a food truck festival tomorrow. Can’t wait!

Apparently we think alike. The questions I asked in my blog post today:
FAVORITE workout this week?
What was the last cookie you ate? <twins.

Reply

Doing nothing but getting ready for OKC marathon on Sunday!!! I am definitely making that cookie salad!

Reply

It’s an App date night with my 2 BFF’s :)

Reply

No plans tonight, we’re super boring. I did manage to get two strength training workouts, plus a barre class so I call that a win

Reply

I saw the tweet and wanted to say hello but it was deleted before I could. I’d follow her!

Reply

Cookie salad sounds delicious! So does the quinoa salad-what’s in that?!?

Reply

Cucumber, tomatoes and olive oil! It was really good!

Reply

Hahahahaa at the tweet!
Yayyy for the cookie salad recipe!
Tonight is me and my final exam -_-
I got in 1 strength so far this week and might get in another this evening!
My last realllllly hard workout was probably when I did the TRX class I think
Maybe.
Last cookie was a girl scout pb cookie!

Reply

Who wouldn’t follow Brooke? She’s got some really important stuff to say!

Tonight I was supposed to stay home and catch up on the mountain of schoolwork I’ve got to do, but a friend is having a going away party so I’ll make an appearance there.

My strength training basically consists of yoga, and I did that a few times this week. :)

Reply

My last hardest workout was the plyometric DVD from the Insanity workout series…..LOVE IT!! Last cookie…hhhmmm can’t remember which is kinda sad:( Better change that tonight.

Reply

School dance and sleeping at a friend’s tonight :) omg. Every time I have an egg salad sandwich I wonder why I don’t have one everyday. Theyare so good. Last cookie… chocolate chip. Can’t beat it.

Reply

I’m taking my kid to lacrosse practice. Good times.
This entire week has been hard. I’m in operation Cancun mode so I’m stepping it up. I’ve done strength training 3x this week, plus pilates and running. It would probably be more effective if I didn’t keep stuffing my face.
Brooke is adorable.

Date nights are the best !
Egg salad has made a return in my rotation recently too. Delish.

Reply

I love egg salad! Especially with mashed avocado!

Reply

no way. my dad made that same exact salad this morning for his work

Reply

I only got one strength training session in this week. Soccer started this week, and after two games so far by body is in rough shape. As much as I try to prepare, the beginning of soccer season is always a shock to my body.

Reply

I have no idea what I’m doing tonight. My last hard workout was a while ago… I hurt my ankle/shin while running so I can’t do much right now :(

Reply

Tonight I am catching up on blogs and relaxing waiting for my hubby to get home from a 14 hour long work day… Have fun on your date!! :) What are you guys doing?

The last kind of cookie I ate was a Brookie (no relation to your Brooke)… it’s a brownie and cookie together!! So delicious and so soft…. yum!! :)

Reply

Brooke is growing up TOO fast! And I hope your date night is with Billy ;)
I snuck a couple of my son’s mini Chip Ahoy cookies the other night. I really want some homemade cookies though. I doing strength training (right now) twice a day while trying to recover from an ITB injury. I need to start working on arms too. Have fun tonight!

Reply

Thanks for the cookie salad recipe! YUM! I got my strength training in this morning. Worked my triceps and they are super sore already! I’ve got a date tonight, too!!! :) Have fun, Janae!

Love her tweet! So cute :) Tonight I went to my parents house for my dad’s birthday. We had lobster and cake m son helped my mom make. A lot of fun :)

Reply

OMG Brooke is brilliant! of course I want to follow

Reply

haha Brooke’s a social media natural! I’d absolutely follow :) Last night I had a homemade chocolate chip cookie from a coworker and it was delish.

Reply

My last hard workout was TODAY- 11 miles long run in Central Park. My legs were very tired (probably because of yesterday’s tempo run) and I had to drag myself from one hill to the other- worst run ever! So the plan for tonight is couch+compression socks to speed recovery!

Cannot think about the last cookie I ate but I can tell you that thanks to you I became addicted to the kettle corn from Trader Joe’s- I’m eaitng it right now! Hope you had a great date this evening ;)

Reply

Tonight is stay home and rest night. We have a long weekend ahead of us. Last night was date night.

The last cookie I ate was a chocolate chip cookie my daughter made. Yum!

Reply

Jillian has been kicking my rear end in gear all month! I’m on Level 3 now and I can really tell a difference.
Thanks for the recipe :)
Enjoy your date!

I’m making a new playlist for my race on Sunday! This one has a ginormous hill that is intimidating the hell out of me, so I’ve convinced myself if I have new music I will rock it. Do you have any good suggestions these days? Imagine Dragons was a good recommendation last time :)

Reply

My really hard last work out was a little over a year ago.. no joke. Recovering from back surgery is the pits.

Reply

My husband and I have been doing the Insanity workout program. It’s very aptly named! I can’t even remember the last cookie I had!

Reply

My daughter would TOTALLY get what Brooke was saying, but too bad my little girl can’t talk yet to share. I think that tweet will forever remain a mystery. I bet Brooke will have more followers than me (probably even my daughter)…the sad truth lol.

Reply

That is a whole lot of goodness in that cookie “salad”. No plans tonight. Just a detox bath and early to bed for me, I have a 8 miler tomorrow morning with my running girls.

Reply

The LOVE of my life, my 8 month old nephew, has been texting me since he was 3 months old, I swear. He even texted me “lard” one time and I didn’t not even care that he was insulting me bc I was so proud of him texting me an actual word.

We had a rare wild night out last night so tonight will probably be couch/food/tv!

My last insane workout was 8X800s with only .2 rest intervals – it killed me. And I did strength this week shockingly – Body Sculp Tues and No More Trouble Zones Fri – still sore!

Reply

I would totally follow Brooke on Twitter! ;) My last really hard workout was when I tried to create a “hill” on the treadmill. I’ve never panted so hard during a run!

Reply

Is this your donut date tonight??? (How exciting!)

Last really hard workout was running 7 miles and doing bodypump!

I teach Bodypump! YAY!! Love it!

I ate a MONSTER COOKIE!! PB, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chips, and M&M’s…..I’m starting my own little baking business, so I have tons of cookie dough lying around. You should stop by. haha :)

Reply

Hubby and I are going out for dinner with my parents and brothers tonight!! I ate one of those black and white sandwich cookies earlier today. Earlier this week I did a killer HIIT workout and my legs are STILL sore!

Reply

Ha! That is too cute! My 6 month old took a photo of himself with my iPhone the other day (by accident, of course). Kids these days are sure getting into technology at a young age, aren’t they? :) I’d totally follow Brooke!

Reply

I had a 20 mile trail run yesterday, a 3 hour break, and then a 6 mile run in the neighborhood. It was incredibly hard for me – and the farthest I have ever run in a day before!

Reply

Finally! I was scared you wouldn’t share the cookie salad recipe with us :).

My last really hard workout was last week’s speed work.

Reply

every once in a while I have a hankering for egg salad!
