Eats + Workouts (9/25)

Hi, guys!

Holy cow, I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. The weekend flewwwww by! And I have a feeling the week ahead is going to feel the exact same way. Kerrie and I are off to San Francisco for a two-day sales conference with our business mentor to learn how to sell our nutrition software. It’s going to be an intense couple of days, but we’re ready to get alltheknowledge! We’re also planning some non-software adventures (hopefully, hiking and vineyards), so if you have recommendations, please let us know! 🙂


Last week’s eats were great overall. I followed my meal plan for the Post-Summer Slim Down, which was a nice break from tracking macros in MyFitnessPal. All of the work was done for me, so I just had to prep and eat the meals and snacks. Sunday through Thursday were on-point for the most part, but then with dining out and concert fun on Friday, I did my own thing for a lot of the weekend. I’m soooo not black and white when it comes to food, and it was a nice balance between the “carrots” and the “cake.” Anyway, here’s a recap of 3 days of eating from last week!

Approximate macro breakdown: P 117 C 147 F 78

Approximate macro breakdown: P 103 C 116 F 84




WEDNESDAY: CROSSFIT – I used #135 for the deadlifts and got 222 reps.

THURSDAY: CROSSFIT – I can’t remember my time, but I was more focused on getting the HSPUs in this workout. It’s a skill, oh, six years later, I still don’t have down. I managed to do 25 of 40 and got sets of 8, 7, 5, and 5. Progress!

FRIDAY: CROSSFIT – This got really hard by round 7 or so.

SATURDAY: CROSSFIT – Partner WOD, took us about 18 minutes to finish

Pacaya Insulated Hooded Jacket – I received this jacket from the nice people at Cotopaxi, and it was an instant favorite! It’s cute, cozy, and well-made, but I especially love what the brand is all about. Their motto is “gear for good,” and they strive to make a positive impact on the world – everything from using leftover fabric to make their products to funding sustainable pathways out of poverty. I’m more than happy to support such an awesome brand!

Extra Mile Long Sleeve – I know… the last thing I needed is another athleisure top, but this one immediately caught my attention. And, of course, once I tried it on, it was alllllllll over. I mean, I need new clothes for networking in San Fran later this week, right?

Just Enough Puff Vest – Now that the fall temps are getting colder, this vest is so perfect. It’s lightweight, but warm. And, guys, it’s $49 off right now!!!

Brooks Revel Sneakers – I’ve been wearing these babies non-stop ever since I received them. (They’re actually on my feet right now!) They’re a mix between running and lifestyle, and the black and white pattern goes with everything. Love!

Question of the Day

We’re only in San Francisco for a few days, WHERE should we eat? Please tell me where all of the good donut places are! 🙂 



  1. San Francisco is my most favorite city in the whole world. If I were you, I would skip hiking and vineyards (I know, I know! I LOVE hiking and vineyards.) and just soak up the city. It’s got so much personality and joy. Have a great time!

  2. I just bought the Revel Shoes and I am LOVING them. Like you said I find myself wearing them more than when just running! 🙂 have a great week

  3. Oh my gosh, you’ll be in my neck of the woods in SF! So many yummy spots— I would vote for Kokkari if you can get a table… OR Belotta for incredible tapas.

    It’s pretty warm in SF this week, so dress accordingly!

  4. As for donuts, Bob’s on Polk street is an institution that has awesome donuts. If you want more of a hipster donut vibe then I would check out Dynamo; they have a full location in the Mission and a coffee shack in the Marina with views of the Golden Gate bridge (shack has less donut choices). As for food, my favorites are A-16, Park Tavern, Okoze Sushi, Gracias Madre, Don Pisto’s to name a few. It’s hard to go wrong with food here; just try to not be shocked by the cost. Also, San Francisco Crossfit for a workout. You were my introduction to Crossfit (thanks for that) and that place is the best!

    1. I second Bob’s! It’s a must visit.

      For food, some of my faves are Zuni Cafe, Tony’s Pizza, Liholiho, and Nob Hill Cafe.

  5. I have never had sweet potato with almond butter – adding this to my must try list! Girl meets Glam has a ton of amazing San Fran reccos on her blog!

  6. Check out Bob’s Donuts on Polk!! Wayfare Tavern (Tyler Florence’s restaurant) is excellent and there’s a fabulous donut dessert…if you have room after the popovers!

    I’m envious of your 31 splat points at Orangetheory, I struggle to crack 10…

  7. Liho Liho, A Mano and Barcino are some of the “hot”, new and super yummy places! I just tried them and they were amazing! Have fun!

  8. There are lots of great urban hikes in SF which are perfect if you’re staying in the city. I’d recommend Lands End (starting at Ocean Beach) if you’re looking for a bit of Pacific coast scenery, or if you feel like city views and some hills (they are serious about their hills in SF) go for Twin Peaks – you get a great sweat on the way up and an amazing view at the top.

  9. I second Dynamo donuts for new flavors, and Bob’s for classic donuts. You really can’t go wrong with the food in SF, but my FAVORITE dessert is from Chow in the Castro: ginger cake, with pumpkin ice cream, and caramel. I had it at both my first and last meal in SF…and I lived there for 9 years! If you’re there on Saturday, the Ferry Building farmers market is great, although the Ferry Building has great food all the time. Have a great trip 🙂

  10. I loveee San Francisco!!! I was going to suggest you go to my favorite winery in Healdsburg, CA but I just read they CLOSED!! 🙁 I would still suggest going to Healdsburg because it is BEAUTIFUL!!! If you go make sure you visit the Downtown Bakery and Creamery! They have donut muffins which are AMAZING and some of the most delicious gelato (olive oil flavored)!!!! I’ve also heard this restaurant is supposed to be amazing as well!

  11. It’s not a donut, but Tartine in the mission has the BEST pastries. Humphry Slocombe ice cream is also amazing….and any burrito you find in the mission district is AMAZING. My SIL used to live in the Mission so we stayed there whenever we visited and it was so much fun. Enjoy your trip!

  12. If you like Italian E Tutto Qua is delicious and a great vibe! And those SF hills are practically hiking right there lol.

  13. I have the Miette cookbook and it is so great that I really want to go there next time I am in San Fran. The cake recipes are awesome and everything looks so cute and pretty! Have a great time.

  14. you may know this already but you MUST go to blue bottle coffee in san fran– the best & creamiest hipster coffee!! <3 <3 <3

    i just started crossfit & even though i consider myself "fit", it's a HUGE adjustment and i'm glad to hear there's still things that people struggle with after years bc i feel like i'll be struggling FOREVER
