    Gooooooood morning and happppppppy Friday! What a week. It was kind of a weird one with the blizzard and having Mal home for two days in a row. It seemed like a weekend, but now the weekend is here again. Whoa. Obviously, I’m not complaining. I love spending time with my boys—all three of them! Yesterday […]


    Food Diary {Tuesday}

    June 25, 2014


    Hello, hello! I’m glad you guys are digging my food recaps. They’re a win-win for both of us, so I’ll probably make it a regular feature with a few recaps each week.

Breakfast My morning (of course) started with a glass of iced coffee along with a delicious, nutritious, and satisfying breakfast of scrambled eggs, fruit salad, and toasted homemade banana bread with melted butter on top.

My favorite dessert-for-breakfast is leftover […]

My time wasn’t super fast, but I’m still proud of myself for Rx-ing a benchmark workout. I first did “Helen” back in February and finished in 12:12, but I used bands for the pull-ups. I […]

    I’m off to Seattle later this week, so I’ve spent the past few days with my butt glued to my desk chair and pounding out work. I put together a few posts to publish while I’m away, wrote my Health posts (I’m writing for them twice a week now), and finished up my last few […]



    Ok, maybe I’m crazy, but I’ve decided to use a different kind of training plan to get myself ready for the Rock ‘N’ Roll USA Half Marathon. My new plan is inspired by the single sport endurance workouts from CrossFit Endurance (CFE). After talking to one of my CrossFit coaches and exploring the CFE website, this […]
