I’m not going to lie, living with friends sort of feels like a vacation so far! Of course, it’s the weekend and we haven’t started the work week just yet, but we’ve all commented that living together has been really fun! Hopefully, we all still feel this way after 2 weeks!

Afternoon Snack

After a 30-minute workout this afternoon (see below), I snacked on a Cherry Cashew Pure Bar, which might be my favorite Pure Bar flavor. I love crunchy cashews and its tanginess!



For dinner, we decided to grill out, so while the burgers and ‘dogs cooked, I munched on a few chips and dip.


For dinner, I enjoyed a cheeseburger…


A small pour of white wine…


And salad drizzled of honey mustard X 2.



After dinner, Mal, Dave, Marie and I played a few games of Cornhole.

The guys…


And the gals…


Dave and Marie beat Mal and I every single game! Apparently, Mal and I need to practice our Cornhole skills! 😳

And, for dessert, Marie offered to bake brownies. Obviously, I wasn’t going to say ‘no’ to such a wonderful suggestion! They smell absolutely delicious baking in the oven right now! I can’t wait to eat one! 😀


I can’t believe it’s Sunday night already! It was the fastest weekend ever! Holy moly! But, I guess time flies when you’re having fun, right?


I didn’t have much time to exercise this afternoon, but I wanted to make sure I worked my lower body this week. (I’m making fitness a priority!) I came up with this 30-minute circuit that includes free weights and plyometrics. To ensure that this workout kicks your butt, don’t rest between exercises or sets. Keep moving!

  • Warm-up (5 minutes)
  • Jump squats (60 seconds)
