Hello, hello! I hope your Tuesday is off to a fabulous start! I have an especially delicious, only 3-ingredient recipe for you guys, but, first, let’s do breakfast! Breakfast Breakfast was something a little different this morning, but it was really tasty. I had two toasted Vans waffles with Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread and banana slices on top. I loved the creamy cinnamon flavor mixed with banana. Mmm! I will definitely be a…

Greetings from Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Home of the Cheeseheads! (I’m seriously considering buying a cheesehead hat before I leave Milwaukee. I would totally wear it at home. I <3 cheese.) Thankfully, all of my travels went smoothly today: Home —> Taxi —> Boston —> Detroit —> Milwaukee —> Taxi —> Hotel. Not a single travel hiccup. Lunch In Boston, before I boarded the plane to Detroit, I grabbed lunch at Fresh City. I was really in…

I woke up yesterday morning and didn’t stop moving until my head hit my pillow late last night. I guess you could say my Saturday was filled will all-day action! Workout My morning started with a yoga class at Lululemon with my friend Kim. We heard there was a free class on Saturday morning, and neither of us had ever been to a Lululemon yoga class before, so we decided to check it out. It…

Happy National Pizza Week! I swear there’s a national holiday for just about every food, but this is one I can definitely get behind. I love me some pizza! In honor of National Pizza Week, I had some fun in the kitchen yesterday and created a crust made from mashed sweet potatoes. Brittany’s Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust inspired me to think outside of the (pizza) box and try something a little different. The end…

Hi, friends! How’s your day going? Mine is flying by, and I love that tomorrow is FRIDAY! Hooray! A number of you guys recently asked me about kipping pull-ups, and I saw that some of you had pull-ups as a goal for 2013, so I decided to write a post about what helped me learn how to do them. Hopefully, my tips will help you too! [image source] Learning progressions from my coaches If you’re…

Good morning! Yesterday’s 24 Days of Togetherness was “watch a Christmas movie,” so Mal and I put on our “movie suits,” cozied up on the couch, and watched Elf last night. Growing up, my family and I watched two Christmas movies every year, but nowadays I love Elf. I honestly laugh out loud while watching it and recite lines from it all year long. When I visit Theodora in NYC, I often tell her “watch…

Hi, friends! Here’s a little preview of our kitchen. Check out the shelf we hung over the stove for our spices. The previous owners had it on the wall in the living room, but we moved into the kitchen since the black shelf we used to have there no longer matched. Cute, right? Mal and I ordered a couple of things from Etsy, so once we receive them, I’ll show ya the final product. Although,…

Seriously delicious dinner last night! I may or may not have eaten it at 4:45 in the afternoon, but, hey, I was hungry. Mal was too, which is why dinner was finished cooking so early in the evening. When I got home from my second NRT appointment (more on that later), I arrived home to the smell of freshly cooked homemade pizza, so I immediately knew it was time to eat. Pizza toppings included shredded…

Hi, friends! Happy Tuesday! How was your President’s Day? Mine was really great””here’s a recap! Lunch Yesterday’s lunch was an arugula salad with all sorts of raw veggies, roasted Brussels sprouts, oven roasted French fries, truffle oil, and a big scoop of hummus in the middle. I kept my salad on the smaller side because I also really wanted a smoothie for lunch. I had a serious craving for one. I made two smoothies””one for…

Ahhh, this is so cool!! Remember when I mentioned my special recipe project with Whole Foods? Well, here’s my WholeFoods.com recipe debut: Brussels Sprout and Chicken Pizza with Parmigiano Reggiano! I should have known it would be a pizza recipe! I <3 pizza. Whole Foods compensated me for my participation and recipe development with a $50 gift card to their store. Dinner Mal and I combined forces to make last night’s dinner. On the menu:…

A couple of weeks ago, my friends at New Balance sent me a pair of their 880 Running Shoes to review. I’m a long-time fan of New Balance (I even trained for my first marathon in NB’s), so I was excited to see what the 880s were all about. My first Impression of the 880s: Cute! I swear, I’m not one of those people who buys sneakers based on their color, but I was happy…

Another reason why I love CrossFit: You never know what to expect! Last night’s workout involved sandbags. That’s right, 35-pound bags filled with sand. And what did we do with them, you ask? Ran with them on our shoulders. Obviously. It’s never a dull day at CrossFit! WOD: “G.I. JOE” 400 meter Sandbag Run 35# 20 Toes to Bar 20 Overhead Squats (95, 65) 200 meter Sandbag Run 100 Double Unders 200 meter Sandbag Run…

Check out the newest addition to our kitchen! What is almond meal/flour? Almond meal/flour is skinless, blanched almonds that have been finely ground. What makes it so special? It adds a moist texture and rich, buttery flavor to baked goods and desserts. It’s also low in carbs and a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, and magnesium. One serving (1/4 cup) has 160 calories, 14g fat (1g sat), 3g fiber, and 6g protein. What…

Before CrossFit last night, I grabbed a clementine and some pistachios to snack on. As I went to photograph them, I decided to get Murphy involved””mainly because he was closely following me around the kitchen and seemed like he wanted to help. I got everything set up for the photoshoot, but then Murphy heard a noise at the front door. What is it?!? Annnndd then he was gone. Obviously, Mal coming home is a lot…
