Do you have a lot going on? Is your To Do list a mile long? Don’t think you have enough time to work out? You might think your schedule is too busy to exercise, but you can maximize your time while tackling your To Do list at the same time. Check out these workouts that multitask, too! Two birds, one stone scone. Unwind with yoga Instead of unwinding with a cocktail or sitting in front…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Breakfast I started my day with a dee-licious breakfast this morning. I didn’t have any leftover squash/pumpkin/sweet potato to make my Sweet Breakfast Scramble, so I made it without and added a little cinnamon, vanilla extract, and honey to the mix, which made it taste (and smell!) sort of like French toast. Mmm! Plank Challenge If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me tweet the following message…

Hi, guys! I saw this survey on Paige’s blog the other day and thought it looked like a fun Friday post, so here goes! 1. Run/workout in the heat and humidity or freezing temps and snow? If you asked me this question a year ago, I would have immediately said heat and humidity, but after running the Boilermaker 15K and the Race for Redemption 5K in the blazing summer heat, I’m all about the freezing…

Hello,  hello! Yesterday included lots of delicious eats, but my favorite of the day was something I call “Coconut Fried Bananas.” Holy goodness, they tasted amazing and were so simple to make. Recipe below! Lunch Yesterday’s lunch was all around delicious and nutritious. I had a couple of Trader Joe’s salmon burgers with barbecue sauce. Sautéed kale. And Sweet Potato Wedges. I love lunches like this one. A little while after eating lunch, I did my Monday…

Hello, hello! Apparently, I’m a big fan of this post title because I used it back in December 2008 and then more recently in June with “Super Duper Sunday.” Haha! I’m so creative. Well, it was the perfect way to describe yesterday. Mal, Murphy, and I had a super Sunday! Breakfast I started my day with a Sweet Breakfast Scramble in an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar with, of course, an extra scoop because I love nut…

I did it! I did my first “Girl” workout as prescribed! Woohoo! I finished “Helen,” but, man, it wasn’t pretty. My time wasn’t super fast, but I’m still proud of myself for Rx-ing a benchmark workout. I first did “Helen” back in February and finished in 12:12, but I used bands for the pull-ups. I thought I could do the workout as prescribed last night since I’ve been busting out kipping pull-ups lately (and I…

Happy Halloween, blog friends!!! Breakfast Breakfast yesterday morning was a two-ingredient pancake with a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter and a glass of coconut-flavored Dandy Blend with almond milk. I received a question yesterday about how I make my Dandy Blend and all I do is add water to it. Dandy Blend is a powder that you mix with hot or cold water, so I make a big batch in my French press and…

I can’t believe Halloween is tomorrow. I hope we’re ready for the trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. Last year, they wiped us clean in just a couple of hours, so Mal and I are ready with tons of candy this year. And I bought all our favorites just in case we have leftovers! Lunch Yesterday’s lunch was a bunch of leftovers from the previous night’s dinner: coconut-almond flour-crusted cod with roasted asparagus and steamed spinach. I…

Two years ago today, Mal and I officially became homeowners!! I can’t believe two years has flown by so quickly. I also can’t believe we’ve managed to stay in one place for an entire two years. Remember when we used to move every 6 months or so? I’m not going to lie, I’m so glad those days are behind us. Moving is stressful! It’s also crazy to think about how much our house has changed…

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!  Breakfast I started my day with a very pumpkin-y breakfast: Sweet Breakfast Scramble in a jar (SBSIAJ) with canned pumpkin, TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, and an extra scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter in the mix. The combo of pumpkin butter + peanut butter was de-lic-ious! I also drank a glass of iced pumpkin spice Dandy Blend with almond milk. After breakfast, I got my plank on! Here’s the first…

Are you ready for the Plank Challenge? Here are the details! The Plank Challenge is actually really simple. It will take place for a total of 4 weeks (October 22 – November 16) and will only require 10 minutes or less of your time on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. Monday and Friday will be time trial days when you hold a plank, time yourself, and record it. On Wednesdays, I’ll post a…

Planes, trains, and automobiles”¦ and I’m home! Breakfast My alarm went off at 6:01 AM this morning. I woke up in Katie’s guest room, took a quick shower, packed up all of my stuff, ate a banana with peanut butter, and then headed to the airport to catch my flight home. It was a whirlwind weekend, but an awesome one, no doubt. At the airport, I bought an iced decaf latte made with almond milk….

At CrossFit a couple of weeks ago, one of the classes at my box ended with a plank challenge. Basically, the person who held their plank the longest won and earned bragging rights. I didn’t attend this particular class, but I heard about it later on. The winner held his plank for 5 minutes and 30 seconds! Impressive, right?! I don’t do planks all that often (maybe once a month at CrossFit during a Tabata…
