    Yesterday, I watched a really interesting episode of The Dr. Oz Show called “Dr. Oz’s Super Market Survival Guide.” It was all about learning how to save time and money while taking the guesswork out of what to buy at the grocery store.

    It Doesn’t Have To Be Fun To Be Fun

    Oooh, Prowler Pushes… how I love to hate you. What the heck are Prowler Pushes, you ask? Well, basically, you push a big metal sled with weight on it across a flat surface—often times it’s pavement, which makes for a loud, obnoxious scraping sound. Sounds glamorous, doesn’t it?

    Good morning, friends! So, something awesome happened last night: I deadlifted 200 pounds! Woohoo! For those of you who CrossFit, 200 pounds isn’t all that impressive, but, for me, it was pretty darn cool, especially since I increased my deadlift weight by almost a third!

    Now that Mal and I have incorporated more meat into diet, our grocery bills have been quite a bit more expensive, so I’m always looking for ways to save money. The recipe for Mexican Ground Turkey Quinoa Skillet is from $5 Dinners, so I spent some time browsing the site looking for budget-friendly recipes to make in the future.
