• GOOD MORNING! Happy Friday, my friends! What’s on the agenda for the weekend? I hope something exciting!

    Since it’s Friday and all, I thought you might enjoy another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. This one is jam-packed with fun stuff!

    Jessie Mundell  – Her website is such a great website for pregnancy and post-partum fitness! She has a “core + floor restore” program that rehabs the abs, and I am seriously considering buying it because I still have that space between mine. Boo.

    So many Lululemon finds – This duffle bag, these shorts, and this tank. I want them all. Hey, my birthday is coming up soon!

    Alaskan salmon burgers from Whole Foods – These salmon burgers are sort of on the thin side, so, even when frozen, they cook fairly fast. On the stove top: Just 4-5 minutes each side. In the oven: 8 minutes total, so you could always throw in a couple while you’re roasting veggies or cooking something else.

    Are you running junk miles? – Quality versus quantity.

    These Chewy Trail Mix Bars – I made a batch of these earlier this week, and they turned out so well. So delicious. (I used apple butter instead of applesauce.) Each one has 95 calories and 5 grams of protein, so they’re a perfect snack before or after a workout.

    Alaska Airlines LGBT discounts – Alaska is now highlighting destinations that support marriage equality, Pride celebrations, and other things of interest to the LGBT community. Awesome, right? They are also offering flight deals and group rates when planning special events.

    Speaking of airline travel…

    Infant Airplane Seat – This thing is GENIUS! I wish we had purchased one before our trip to Seattle. On the plane, it attaches to the seat in front of you and around your waist, so it’s basically a hammock (with a harness) and allows for face-to-face interaction with your infant. The baby can easily sleep in there, so it’s comfortable for the both of you. It’s also a high-chair outside of flights. And the seat is compliant with all FAA regulations. So cool.

    Slow Cooker Loaded Sweet Potatoes – I saw these on Lindsay’s blog the other day, and I absolutely want to make them for dinner next week. What a great idea!

    ThredUp is buying maternity stuff now – Ok, I actually think they have for awhile, but I recently received an email about it and wanted to share since I know I’ll be doing some Spring cleaning with my wardrobe soon enough and thought some of you ladies might too!

    The Last TWO Days…

    Hi, friends! How’s your Thursday going so far? I just got back from a glorious 90-minute run (9.67 miles), which was outside and actually semi-warm (upper 40s). Holy cow, it was amazing. Seriously, it was so nice to not have to run through snow and slush while dealing with cold hands, frozen cheeks, and scary I’m-running-in-the-road […]

    Interview With Rebecca Zamolo, Star of ‘INSIDE/OUT: My Battle with IBD’

    March 26, 2015

    Remember how I blogged about Rebecca Zamolo last week? She’s the woman who made a documentary about her experience with Ulcerative Colitis and adjusting to life with an ostomy bag. Well, her publicist contacted me and offered me an interview with her and, of course, I jumped at the chance. Her story resonated with me so […]

That said, here are 20 of my very favorite, go-recipes that are crazy-easy to make (if I can make them, anyone can!) and they come […]

    Balancing CrossFit and Running

    March 24, 2015

    Hello, hello! I get questions all the time from readers about how to best balance CrossFit with running, specifically long distance running, like training for a half or full marathon and, honestly, I never really knew how to reply—mostly because I hadn’t figured it out for myself yet. It was a constant struggle for me to […]

    It’s Like We’re Camping

    IMG_0461-800x600_thumb.jpg

    So, our heat went out again last night. We had our furnace serviced just a few weeks ago because of the same issue, but, unfortunately, it went out again. *sigh* (Is it Spring yet? Oh, yea, it is. Is it summer yet? Jeez, Louise. I am so done with this winter-like weather.) I woke up in the […]
