Hi, guys! Just a quick post to recap my eats for the day and say goodbye before I leave for Seattle. I have a couple of giveaways and a few guest posts set up to publish tomorrow and this weekend, so be sure to pop in! Breakfast This morning, I woke up with Mal when his alarm went off, and before I even climbed out of bed, he asked me to make OMG Pancakes for breakfast….

I’m off to Seattle later this week, so I’ve spent the past few days with my butt glued to my desk chair and pounding out work. I put together a few posts to publish while I’m away, wrote my Health posts (I’m writing for them twice a week now), and finished up my last few NuVal posts and a couple of other freelance projects. Basically, I’ve been getting ish done!! My plan is to have…

So, this morning was a tad frustrating. After breakfast, I drove to an appointment with my GI doctor, but, unfortunately, I never actually saw him because of some health insurance mumbo-jumbo. Basically, I didn’t have a referral from my new primary care doctor to see my GI doc, so my visit wouldn’t have been covered by my health insurance. Annoying, but I sort of thought this might happen”” and it’s totally okay because I recently…

Hi, friends! Thank you so much for all of your supportive comments on this morning’s post. It was a tough decision to make, but I know it’s for the best. And if you don’t have your health, you really don’t have much, so I’m glad I’m giving it a try. Snack A few hours after breakfast, I got hungry again, so I snacked on some blueberries. I finished off the pint. Lunch A short while later,…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! Check out who decided to get comfy in my office chair this afternoon: Working hard or hardly working? He’s so darn cute. Breakfast Today’s breakfast was almond butter, banana, chia seeds, and cinnamon in a whole wheat wrap with a glass of iced coffee with almond milk in it. I know I’ve been super boring with my breakfasts lately, but I’m really loving this one. I swear, every morning I wake up…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! The other day, I stumbled upon this cool infographic created by some CrossFit number crunchers. It shows the average stats of the men and women who placed in the top 10 in the 2012 CrossFit Open. Check it out! Just for fun, here’s how I compare: Snatch: 80 lbs. Clean and Jerk: 95 lbs Deadlift: 200 lbs Back Squat: 155 lbs. Haha! I’m not even close to the average! It just…

It’s probably no surprise I love nut butter. I mean, you guys see how much of it I eat on CNC. I basically plow through about a jar in one week all by myself (ok, maybe 1.5 jars). Mal might eat a serving or two, but, typically, I dominate the jar. What can I say, I am nuts for nut butter! Breakfast Mal (surprisingly) finished off the jar of Teddie Peanut Butter yesterday afternoon, so…

Hello, hello! After breakfast, I planned to go for a run, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I felt lazy and unmotivated, so I threw on my new Reach the Beach tech shirt with the hope of it psyching me up. (New workout gear is typically instant exercise motivation for me.) Even though I was dressed in my workout gear, I still struggled to get started. It rained overnight, so the morning was dreary and…

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…

Hello, friends! The other day, I read an article about creative ways to make some extra cash. One of the ideas was basically turning your car into a moving billboard by advertising on it. Apparently, you can make some serious dinero doing this. One company who does this type of advertising, Free Car Media, says they’ll pay up to $900 per month! Crazy, right?  I’m all about moneymaking ideas, but I’m on the fence about…

Hello! The other day, I received the following question from a reader: How filled up does your Oats In a Jar get? I made it a while ago, but my oats barely made it 1/3 of the way up to jar. I found it so inconvenient that I ended up just pouring it back into a bowl. Sad day. That is a sad day! Oats In a Jar are one of my favorite breakfasts, so…

One of the best perks about working from home is afternoon cuddle time with my favorite pug. How adorable is this dog?! Murphy often spends much of the day sitting in my lap while I work at my computer. I’m sure it’s terrible for my back, but he’s so darn cute, I just can’t say no. Plus, he keeps me warm! Breakfast I woke up craving a warm, creamy bowl of oatmeal, so I whipped up…

Hi, friends! I have a hot date with my couch and Parks and Rec in a little bit since it’s LITERALLY my favorite show on TV right now, so I’m going to whiz right through this post. Snack A few hours after breakfast, my stomach started to grumble, so I threw together a quick snack of carrot sticks, Wheat Thins, and garlic hummus. Such a good snack. Honestly, is there anything better than Wheat Thins…

I don’t know what’s up with me, but I’m absolutely exhausted today. Maybe it’s the weather or my new workout routine that’s making me extra tired? All I know is that I needed to take a power nap to wake up this afternoon, which says something because I hate naps. I rarely ever nap because I never wake up feeling better/more awake after one. Most of the time, I feel worse and usually a little…

The weather has been gray and icky since I woke up this morning, but there was a ray of sunshine on my rainy day. (Just wait and see how cheesy my post title becomes!) Lunch Today’s lunch was split into two parts: savory and sweet. Savory = reheated homemade pizza with ground turkey and veggies. Sweet = banana smoothie with chocolate soy milk, Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, ground flaxseed meal, and cinnamon. Workout After…
