Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Murphy’s week didn’t start off great, but I assume it’s because of his involvement with PAMC. I’m happy to report though that Murphy is feeling a lot better today. He ate a delicious dog treat from Oahu this morning, so he’s been in a fabulous mood ever since. Breakfast My morning started with a bowl of whipped plantain coconut yogurt””same as yesterday, but…

Well, we definitely got some snow overnight. Hello, Nemo! Check out what we woke up to this morning! Snowed in! As soon as we realized just how much snow there was outside, Mal immediately started to dig us out. I offered to do some of the shoveling, but he wouldn’t let me. He just said: “How about you make me breakfast? I want A LOT of pancakes.” Well, ok, then. I’d much rather stay inside…

Good morning, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! Let’s get right to it this morning. This post has quite the random mix of topics in it! (Aren’t those posts sometimes the best though?) Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was Greek yogurt with Paleo “granola” and blueberries. I’ve been really digging this combo lately. I also ate it for lunch on Sunday afternoon too. It soooo good! Workout After breakfast,…

Good morning! Happy Friday! Pug people, how adorable is this “Benefits to Pug Ownership”!?! One of my Twitter followers tweeted it to me last night, and I almost died with cuteness overload. I especially loved the part about Men in Black. Haha! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was mashed sweet potatoes with Coconut Cinnamon Apples (<— recipe also works with pears!), Greek yogurt, and a scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I heated up the sweet potatoes…

Hello, hello! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week is flying by for me! I hope it’s flying by for you too! Breakfast I started my day with Greek yogurt mixed with Paleo “granola” and blueberries. I didn’t think anything other than a crapload of nut butter would fill me up and hold me over until lunch, but Greek yogurt seems to be doing the trick. After breakfast, I took Murphy outside for a…

Check out what I had for breakfast yesterday morning””and it’s not a French Toast Breakfast Scramble or a Two-Ingredient Pancake! I made a Greek yogurt parfait with blueberries and some Paleo “granola” that I whipped up the night before. I know there’s a lot of Paleo “granola” and Paleo “crunch” recipes out there, so I’m not the first to create something like this, but I simplified the recipe by using what I had in my…

I am loving the idea of making a yogurt parfait in a jar. It’s so convenient! And fun! I went into NuVal for a few hours this morning, so I packed one to take with me for lunch. Woohoo! Yogurt parfait to go! This morning, while making his breakfast, Mal noticed that our raspberries were going bad, so he instructed me to “finish ’em off.” I hate seeing food go to waste, so these on-their-last-day…

Greetings from Alaska Airlines! Hooray for in-flight internet! My flight departed at 8:00 AM, so it was an early morning for me, especially since I still had some packing to finish. (Why do I always wait until the last-minute to finish packing? I know it’s going to stress me out. Blah. I never learn.) Once I was all packed up and ready to go, Mal and Murphy drove me to the commuter rail. I don’t…

Hello, hello! A bunch of you guys mentioned that you’d love to try CrossFit if it wasn’t so expensive. I agree, it’s a pricey hobby, but you can do many of the WODs at your gym or at home. Check out this post for info and more budget-friendly ideas. Additionally, here are some travel WODs that you can print out or pin on Pinterest. All of them can be done without equipment. Speaking of CrossFit……

After breakfast this morning, I was going to run 6 miles like I had planned for my Weekly Workouts, but, as I was changing into my running gear, I remember that I told one of my CrossFit friends that I’d be at Monday night’s class. I’m sure she wouldn’t have cared if I decided not to go tonight, but I don’t like letting people down or going back on my word, especially when it comes…

I love today! Warm weather, sunshine, Marylou’s Twix iced coffee, a trip to the dog park with my favorite pug, CrossFit tonight”¦ all good stuff. Oh, happy day! What’s making you happy today? Please share! Breakfast My morning started with scrambled eggs with chopped green bell pepper, tomatoes, mushrooms, and shredded cheddar cheese mixed in. On the side: a whole wheat English muffin with butter slathered on top. Lunch After breakfast, I went into NuVal…

Ever since colitis flare #2, I’ve taken it easy with workouts by scheduling more rest days into each week and completely nixing my twice-a-day sessions. With that said, I woke up this morning feeling pretty sore (and just kind of blah) after last night’s CrossFit workout, so it was no-brainer to take a rest day today. Murphy had a lot of energy this afternoon (and was driving me nuts), so I took him for a…

Open gym at CrossFit was a lot of fun this morning. I loved Helen. It was an awesome WOD. I already want to attempt it again to see if I can do it faster! I love WODs that include running””mostly because it’s a skill that I’m confident in my abilities. I’m still trying to feel out almost everything else at CrossFit, but with running, I don’t need to think about it. I just go and do it. And…

Today has been filled with so many of my favorite foods! I love days like this– my mouth and mind have been continuously satisfied and happy! Dinner looks like it’s going to be delicious, too!  Afternoon Snack During my errands this afternoon, which included shopping for some new clothing for work, dropping-off dry cleaning, picking-up a prescription, and purchasing a video game for Mal (I’m such an enabler!), I popped into Whole Foods for a leisurely stroll around…
