I’m not one to pass up a cocktail, but I also don’t want to consume a ton of sugar or unnecessary calories. I realize that no cocktail is healthy for you, but if you’re going to have a drink or two, you can choose lower calorie options that are still delicious and sometimes even nutritious. Here are 7 low-calorie cocktails (you need to try)! 7 Low-Calorie Cocktails (You Need to Try) Skinny Pina Colada The…

Hey, friends! The weekend is just about here! Woohoo! I hope you have something fun and exciting planned for it. I actually have a busy weekend ahead. Listen to this packed agenda: Trip to the aquarium, an overnight on Cape Cod, a pool party, date night with Mal, and potentially driving to L-town to visit family. Phew. I hope I can fit it all in! Anyway, with the weekend right around the corner, I wanted to share some…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Oh, happy hour. It’s no doubt one of my favorite times of day. But, if you rewind to my post-college days, too much merriment and overindulging at happy hour caused me to gain 20+ pounds. Enjoying cheesy nachos and way too much beer after work, more than a little too often, forced me to buy a whole new wardrobe. True story! Nowadays, happy hour is a lot more…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! My 4th was a ton of fun, but also really relaxing at the same time because we didn’t have any set plans and just hung out and relaxed for two days straight. Mal, Murphy, and I spent the 4th (and 5th) at my in-law’s house (aka Funny Farm) and hung out with the whole family. It was a HOT couple of days, so we…

Remember “The Extra Mile” smoothie from Kure that I raved about the other day? Well, I (appropriately) re-named it “The Best Smoothie Ever Made” and successfully recreated it at home. Yay! The original list of ingredients included coconut meat, but I didn’t have any on hand, and I actually wasn’t sure how it would work””bust open a coconut and shave some off? I dunno, but it sounded like a lot of work, so I swapped…

Two of my favorite “activities” in life are CrossFit and drinking. Haha! Hey, I work hard and play hard! I especially love doing these things together as seen here, here, and here. So when Smirnoff reached out to me about hosting a “Ladies’ Night (Work) Out,” which would include a workout followed by a sampling of Smirnoff’s new Sorbet Light vodkas, I was all about it. I knew my CrossFit girlfriends would love it too,…

After my tour of the Hawaii Prince Hotel, I met Mal at the beach, which was just a short walk from the hotel. We went swimming and worked on our tans for about an hour before we started to get hungry for lunch. There were a bunch of bars and restaurants along the water, so we walked up the strip to check out the dining options. Our only requirement for lunch: outdoor seating. Us folks…

Good morning! Look who tried to come to CrossFit with us last night! There’s been a lot of CrossFit talk in our house lately, so I guess Murphy wanted to see what it’s all about. Look at that sad, sad, sad pug face. Poor guy. He was so bummed he couldn’t come along for a ride in the car. Unfortunately (for Murphy), pugs and CrossFit just don’t mix. Workout Last night’s WOD was the hardest…
