Hello! It’s a beautiful day here! 😎

After breakfast, I headed to a tough Body Pump class. Well, it wasn’t any more difficult than the average class”” I just decided to increase my weight on a few of the exercises.

For the past few months, I feel like I’ve been coasting along at Body Pump, using the same weight week after week, and not really challenging myself, so I stepped-it-up today! Notable weight increases (includes 3-pound bar):

  • Chest: 28 lbs.
  • Deadlifts: 33 lbs.
  • Shoulders: 23 lbs.

I’m telling ya, I’m a beast! 😉 I really want to get stronger, so I’m going to keep using these new weight increases and maybe add some more in the coming weeks. I’d much rather skip a few reps using heavier weight than coast through a track without breaking a sweat.


When I got home, I was starving! I guess this morning’s breakfast didn’t hold me over to lunch very well. My stomach started growling during Body Pump around 9:30 AM!

For lunch, I threw together a quick salad, which I topped with leftover Lime Leaf chicken, roasted cauliflower, and balsamic vinegar.

After lunch, I had a serious craving for a cookie, so I did a little experimenting in the kitchen, and the end result was pretty awesome. My 3-Minute Oatmeal Raisin Cookie now has a sibling! Introducing the sweet, soft 3-Minutes Peanut Butter Cookie!

10 Questions About Life As We Know It

I stumbled upon this editorial piece in Glamour magazine, and I thought you guys would enjoy it too: 10 Questions About Life As We Know It.


Sometimes, late at night, a woman can find herself staring at the ceiling, pondering the universe’s great mysteries. Here are my favorites from the article:

No. 1: Why does Snooki make more money in two episodes than most teachers earn in an entire year?

No. 3: Why is everyone so worried about Jennifer Aniston getting married again and having children when George Clooney is in the same situation and obviously doing just fine

No. 6: Why do female doctors in New York earn $17,000 a year less than male M.D.s? Isn’t the whole pay gap thing getting kinda tired?

What things make you go hmmm?
