Guys, I’m on a serious smoothie kick lately. It’s just so darn hot here, they are one of the only things that sound appetizing to me. But, of course, that’s totally okay since smoothies are such a great way to pack lots of nutrients into your diet and this one is no different. It’s also incredibly tasty! This recipe calls for just four ingredients, which you might already have in your kitchen. Awesome. These ingredients are also quite substantial when combined together, so…

Hey, hey! Look at me. Two recipes in one week! Who am I?! Haha! Honestly, I’m craving ALLTHECARBS this week, and when I realized we had a couple of super ripe bananas just waiting to be used up, I knew immediately that I wanted to turn them into some sort of carb-tastic baked good. But, at the same time, I wanted to keep it healthy, especially since I just made No-Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday! Here’s a little recap of yesterday… Big ol’ breakfast: Fried egg with homefries, a toasted English muffin with butter, and buffalo sauce. (FYI: I make a huge batch of homefries on Sunday –a mix of red and sweet potatoes + Montreal Steak Seasoning– and then Mal and I reheat them for breakfast all week long.) After breakfast: Errands with Quinn + White Chocolate Chip iced coffee from Marylou’s. Second breakfast: Breakfast burrito…

Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? We had a rocky morning here, but things have greatly improved! Early-morning breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter and banana + iced coffee. I love this breakfast because I can throw it together in just a few minutes. And, of course, it’s tasty and filing! After his first feeding of the day, Quinn got cranky, which, unfortunately, has become a not-so-fun morning pattern for us. He hates…

Mal and his “face twin” during tummy time. I have so much love for these two and, boy, do they make me happy. They are pretty darn cute too. Almond butter and banana. Best combo ever. It never gets old. CrossFit! Duh. I did this workout L2.5 (45 pounds for OHS) and finished in 17:25. My double unders suprisingly weren’t terrible! New iced coffee flavors. Marylou’s always has something new and exciting, which makes their iced coffee…

Hello, hello! Happy Friday, friends! Let’s get right to it with a recap of my eats and happenings from the day! (I’m publishing this post a little earlier than usual because I have a hot date with Mal, Q, and Murphy on our back porch with some apps and adult beverages””for the human adults, of course!) BREAKFAST Whole wheat toast with almond butter, banana, and Fage Greek yogurt After breakfast, I swung by Marylou’s to grab…

My banana costume got a lot of use yesterday! First at CrossFit for a special Halloween WOD. (Burpees in a banana costume are a lot of fun!) Of course, Kerrie had the exact same costume! Banana buddies. And then I wore my banana costume to Chipotle to get $3 Booritos with Mal Macklemore. The place was totally bumping last night, but our burritos we’re well worth the wait. Chipotle makes a really good burrito! Other…

Good morning! Happy Tuesday! Yesterday morning started bright and early with a trip to Marylou’s for iced coffee. Mal and I both dropped the ball on making another batch, so we ended up buying our morning cup of joe. As always, Murphy wanted to come for a ride in the car. Pugs love adventures. There are actually quite a few Marylou’s locations near our house (I know, I am so lucky), but I opted for…

Last night, I helped our CrossFit box move to a new location. Our little family has grown quite a bit over the past several months and we finally outgrew our space, so we needed a bigger home. We had about 20 members come out and help with the move last night. Team work definitely sped things up! Before we were knew it (seriously, it took like 15 minutes), the truck was all packed up and…

(I guarantee this post title will make Theodora laugh!) After CrossFit yesterday, Mal and I felt really lazy. I don’t know if it was all of those heavy kettlebell swings or what, but neither of us felt like putting in any effort to make lunch, even though we were both starving, so I suggested going out to eat. As soon as the words left my mouth, Mal’s face lit up. I guess we were on…

Oh my gosh, I ate the best snack yesterday afternoon: sliced banana with peanut butter and Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. Holy crap, it was delicious. That is all. Workout I was feeling kind of mellow yesterday afternoon, so I nixed CrossFit and went to yoga instead. I guess I was just in a funk. Usually, I’m pumped for CrossFit, but, yesterday, I just wanted a low-key workout. I took a 75-minute Vinyasa Flow class at…

As you probably know, I love goals””setting them, creating “game plans” to work toward them, and, of course, achieving them. Basically, I love having something to work towards and, even if I don’t succeed, I like knowing at least I gave it my best effort””and isn’t that what’s most important?…

Exciting news! In a couple of weeks, I’m hosting my first ever Twitter party with Stonyfield to help them drum up some buzz for their new Oikos frozen yogurt flavors: Peach Mango and Super Fruits. Like all Stonyfield products, the Frozen Oikos are made from organic ingredients produced without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones. Additionally, these frozen yogurts are packed with probiotics, which I am all about…

Hi, guys! How’s your Tuesday afternoon going? Mine is going especially well because I just discovered a Target less than five miles from my house. Oooh, yes. I am psyched! I plan to spend a lot of time and money there. Workout After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a quick run. On days that I plan to go to CrossFit in the evening, I try to stick with shorter runs, so I still…
