Hi, guys!

I spent most of today work, work, working, so I figured I’d pop in for a quick post before I shut down my computer and made dinner.

So I don’t know about you, but I am totally obsessed with Instagram. Of course, I love posting photos, but I also love seeing other people’s pictures too, especially the pug ones. (I follow a ridiculous number of pug accounts. I know. I have issues. It’s cool.) Anyway, here’s a recap of my weekend according to Instagram!

Five Guys burger with all the fixings. Oh my goodness, this hamburger was so amazing. I’ve been craving red meat lately (chicken suddenly isn’t appetizing??), so this burger totally hit the spot. Five Guys definitely does something special with their burgers… and French fries. Helloooo!


So much green juice! I’ve been craving green juice like crazy lately and making it just about every day. I made a pear-apple-cucumber-spinach mix this morning, which was incredible and, according to Mal, “pear-y refreshing.” He is so witty.


Oh, how I love Curtis Ps. Curtis Ps are 1 power clean + 1 front lunge on the right leg + 1 front lunge on the left leg + 1 push press at the end. Those four movements together count as one Curtis P, and I love how challenging they are.

At Open Gym this morning, Mal and I did a variation of a WOD with Curtis Ps that our box did yesterday:

4 rounds for time with a partner:

40 calorie row (~600 meters)
20 Curtis Ps

Mal and I split the row (approximately 300 meters each) and then took turns doing the Curtis Ps (5 at a time) each round. I started with 75 pounds for the Curtis Ps, but I had serious Bambi legs and was wobbling all around, so I dropped down to 65 pounds, which was much more manageable. We finished the workout in 30 minutes, anddddd my legs are going to be sore tomorrow! Yowsahs.


My dog is super cute; my husband is super weird. I think this photo says it all. #photobomb


A healthy breakfast for the first day of the Get Healthy, Stay Healthy Challenge. I started my food journal this morning (on MyFitnessPal), which included a delicious egg, bacon, and cheese sandwich on an English muffin and a glass of freshly pressed green juice. Are you in for the challenge?!


I said goodbye to an old friend. I traded in my beloved Camry for a new car this weekend. It was bittersweet.

My Camry was my first big purchase of my adult life almost 10 years ago, and she’s been with me through so much: treks to Vermont to visit Mal when he was still in college, commuting from Littleton to Chestnut Hill (<— traffic nightmare), adventures in Southie, road trips all over the Northeast, and every else along the way. Man, I’m going to miss that little car, but it’s time for her to go. She recently needed a lot of repairs, and we need more space for Baby Haupert. So long, good friend. (Oh, of course, I am super excited about our new car. We pick it up on Thursday!!!)
