• mac & cheese


    Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? We had a rocky morning here, but things have greatly improved! Early-morning breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter and banana + iced coffee. I love this breakfast because I can throw it together in just a few minutes. And, of course, it’s tasty and filing! After his […]

    Lightened-Up Mac & Cheese (900x600)

    Love mac & cheese? Me too! But, of course, I don’t love how it’s loaded with calories and fat and usually falling short on nutrients. You know what I’m talking about, right? Pasta, cheese, butter, more cheese… not the healthiest ingredients. With that in mind, I created a remade version using Brussels sprouts, spinach, Greek […]

    Good morning, friends! I wasn’t in the mood for CrossFit or running yesterday, so I took Murphy for an extra long walk and counted that as my exercise for the day.

Lunch Today’s lunch was leftover cheesy Shepherd’s Pie with steamed spinach for some extra nutrients and “bulk.” The spinach was also on its last legs, so I wanted to use it […]


    Take A Family Photo

    December 7, 2012


    Happy holidays from our family to yours! Yesterday’s 24 Days of Togetherness was “take a family photo,” so we had a little fun with the self-timer on my camera last night. But, no matter what we tried, we could not get Murphy to look at the camera. He looks like a little Scrooge, doesn’t he? […]

    Have I mentioned before that I love school vacation week? I love it because Mal and I do fun things together like make Burpees t-shirts for the first CrossFit Open WOD! Burpees stink, but homemade t-shirts are fun! Ok, we’re are super nerds, but our special Burpees shirts motivated us to bang out some serious […]
