Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you!

I hope you had a nice Easter. I have a recap of ours coming soon, but I wanted to share my workouts from last week as well as some of the delicious eats that I enjoyed.

I’m glad I’ve finally got into a groove again with my workouts, and I’m finally feeling back to my old self again. As far as my eats go, I dined out quite a bit last week, so I did my best to keep things in check (I tracked macros during the day), but I definitely enjoyed myself too!


Sunday: Off

Monday: 4 miles

Sneakers: Brooks Boston Launch 5 (aka “Boston Marathon Lobster Sneakers”) 

Tuesday: CrossFit

I can’t remember how long this workout took me to finish, but I remember the HSPUs kicking my butt. The #105 Power Cleans were pretty heavy for me, so, mixed with DUs, the HSPUs were just not happening. I did maybe 10 total and then switched to two mats and then Tiger Push-Ups. HSPUs and I just weren’t meant to be.

Wednesday: Off

Thursday: CrossFit

I went to the 5:15 AM class on Thursday morning, so this workout felt especially tough at that hour of the day. The Wallballs and Bike were “fun,” and the T2B took me forever. But, hey, it was definitely a good one, and I was WIDE AWAKE when I left class! 🙂

Friday: CrossFit

This workout was short and sweet… and much harder than expected! I used a band for the Ring Dips.

Saturday: CrossFit

I liked this partner workout a lot! I used #75 for the Snatches, but by the time we got to the #95 Clean + Jerks, I was dying. I did them one at a time. Holy heavy!

Simple, but delicious dinner! Cauliflower pizza crust (from Trader Joe’s) with a spinach salad with Tahini Dressing on top.

Fried Brussels sprouts from Rivershed. My gosh, these were incredible!! If you’re local, YOU NEED TO TRY THESE!

Question of the Day

How often do you typically dine out each week?



  1. We dine out about once a week. Being gluten free and eating out is extremely challenging. While many restaurants do have gluten free options, they tend not to be waist friendly and/or healthy. It’s very frustrating so we just eat at home or when we do go out, I completely rearrange the menu to get something that’s naturally gluten free.

  2. Maybe you have posted about this in the past, but what does Quinn typically eat for dinner? I know you’ve documented his picky eating/not wanting to eat, and it seems like many of the things you eat for dinner are probably not things he would eat so I’m guessing he gets something different? I have a picky toddler who isn’t all that interested in eating as well (she also has a dairy allergy which makes it even harder…no cheese is rough) and I really struggle with dinner. I don’t love the idea of making a separate dinner for her and try not to most of the time but sometimes I just know she’s not going to go for whatever we’re having. I’m wondering if you have any go-to dinners for Quinn that aren’t too much work.

    1. Oh, man, dinner is my least favorite meal of the day. If Quinn does eat (it’s not always a given and almost always a fight), he’ll eat pasta with butter and fruit. He’ll sometimes eat fish sticks or hummus with pita bread, but our options are pretty limited. He’ll eat pizza on occasion too. We offer different foods every night, but he freaks out if they’re on his plate, so most of the time, we just place a bowl of broccoli or whatever we’re eating near his plate and talk it up the best we can.

      1. Thanks for your reply! Sounds familiar 😉 Kids are mind boggling, right? Like, how can you just not want to eat?! I’m lucky my daughter likes PB&J because I think it’s the only thing keeping weight on her!

        1. I knowwwwww! And the thing that kills me/cracks me up is when we talk about dinner, Quinn always says: “But I had dinner yesterday!” Umm, you’re suppose to eat dinner everyday! 🙂
