• Hey, hey! Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday as well as a cool fundraiser that I am participating in this weekend and some delicious smoothie and juice recipes from my new book. Ok, here goes!

    3:00 AM… Murphy is not a fan of early morning feedings, especially when he’s not the one being fed. Poor pug. His life is so hard.

    Pre-WOD eats: Toast with almond butter and banana with a side of baby cuteness.

    Yesterday’s WOD was a FUN one… a serious leg and lung smoker! I finished in 18:45.

    PSA: Canned tuna is on sale at CVS for $0.88 per can. I also had a $5.00 ExtraCare coupon, so I got 10 cans for $3.80. Booyah. (I know I’m a dork. It’s cool. I just love good deals!)

    Post-WOD refueling: SFH vanilla Recovery protein powder + iced coffee + almond milk + water.

    Please note the nail file next to my shaker. Q scratched the crap out of his face yesterday. He even made himself bleed (his own blood – Dodgeball anyone?) in a couple of different places, like big, long scratches. Mal says it looks like he got into a fight, so I’ve been filing down his nails when I feed him to prevent him from doing it anymore.

    Lunch: Big salad with roasted sweet potatoes, chicken, crumbled feta, and spicy mustard.

    After lunch: Dark chocolate chunks + almonds. Mal asked me if I think the chocolate is healthier because I eat it with almonds. Well, yes, obviously, Mal.

    Tummy time included kicking Murphy in the butt yesterday. The pug didn’t notice Q’s baby kicks at all… or pretended not to. He’s such a good big brother.

    Afternoon snack: Broccoli florets mixed with Light Creamy Swiss from The Laughing Cow, dried currants, and sunflower seeds. Delicious!

    Late in the afternoon, I headed to the park with my favorite boys.

    Grain-Free Almond Butter Granola Balls

    Guys, I have eaten SO MUCH granola lately… well, technically, Renola. I seriously can’t stop eating the stuff!! It’s so frickin’ good and so easy to eat while standing in the kitchen in the middle of the night while holding an infant. Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the recipes I’ve made using it because […]

    Q says “thumbs up” to our first stroller bootcamp class! We had a blast! My friend Kerrie runs an all-women’s bootcamp (FYI: it’s very CrossFit-esque) in Weymouth and she recently added an outdoor stroller bootcamp to her class offerings. I’ve wanted to try it out with Q for weeks now, but I needed to make sure […]

    Hi, friends! We had a nice little Sunday yesterday. It started with a trip to the dog park where I ran with Q and the jogging stroller for about 15 minutes and, man, it was tough—so much harder than I thought it would be! I definitely need to work on it! Haha! Mal also took […]

    Mal Sent Me The Best Text Message

    Hi, blog friends! Happy Friday! Yesterday started with a 45-minute spinning class with my best fitness buddy followed by chit-chat and iced coffee, which is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When Mal goes back to school in September, I am definitely going to miss these mornings. On my drive home from getting iced coffee, […]
