Hey guys! Welcome to this next edition of CNC Instagram Live. I have a great group of questions for you today, so if you’d like to hear them, stay tuned and listen in!     LDN and UC Update I received a few variations of this question and am happy to talk about it because I’ve got a lot to tell! LDN (knock on wood) has potentially kicked in, though it’s hard to know for…

Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. I’m actually running the Falmouth Road Race this morning, so, hopefully, I have all good stories to share later on. Even though I did a fair amount of running this summer, I’m feeling particularly under-trained for it. Whomp whomp. If you missed the 24 hour replay of this Instagram Live, here it is for your viewing pleasure. It has quite the nice mix of questions and…

Heyyyyy, muffin fans, I have an incredible recipe that you are guaranteed to love and bake again and again. This recipe combines naturally sweet dried cranberries and cocoa nibs with an all-star cast of nutritious and delicious ingredients for a fluffy, yet protein-packed muffin. They’re truly the best of both worlds and, basically, you need to have a stash of these babies in your kitchen at all times. Thank you to Nuts.com for partnering with me on this…

Hi, guys! Everyone loves a good protein ball, right? I mean, they are the perfect snack since they typically combine a nutritious and satisfying mix of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. It’s no wonder they’re a top pick for so many of us! That said, here’s a round-up of protein ball recipes from some of my favorite healthy living bloggers, and I hope you decide to try one (or more) of them! Enjoy! The Best Peanut Butter Protein…

Guys, I’m on a serious smoothie kick lately. It’s just so darn hot here, they are one of the only things that sound appetizing to me. But, of course, that’s totally okay since smoothies are such a great way to pack lots of nutrients into your diet and this one is no different. It’s also incredibly tasty! This recipe calls for just four ingredients, which you might already have in your kitchen. Awesome. These ingredients are also quite substantial when combined together, so…

Hey, hey! Look at me. Two recipes in one week! Who am I?! Haha! Honestly, I’m craving ALLTHECARBS this week, and when I realized we had a couple of super ripe bananas just waiting to be used up, I knew immediately that I wanted to turn them into some sort of carb-tastic baked good. But, at the same time, I wanted to keep it healthy, especially since I just made No-Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and…

Good morning, friends! I have a tasty, protein-packed recipe to share with you! I recently partnered with General Mills to develop a recipe for one of their upcoming blogger mailings using their brand new Gluten Free Chexâ„¢ Granola. I created these On-the-Go Power Protein Cookies, which were inspired by a friend,who has a lonnggg commute to work in the morning and wanted something quick, easy, and filling to bring along on the ride. The new Gluten…

Heyyyyyyy! How’s it going? I hope your morning is off to a fabulous start! I love writing these posts, so here’s another What I’m Loving Lately for your viewing pleasure! Buffalo sauce I am totally loving buffalo sauce lately, and I am putting it on everything: eggs, toast with Laughing Cow, chicken, salads, potatoes, roasted veggies”¦ As Mal says, I’m back on the “sauce.” Haha! It’s funny because when I was pregnant, the thought of…

Hi, friends! I haven’t done a Photo Dump post in over a year now, so I figured it was time for another one. Plus, I need to free up some space on my iPhone because I can’t take any new photos! Gahhhhh! Anyway, without further ado, here are some random pics from my iPhone! Enjoy! Quinn’s expression in this photo is priceless. I put a sneaker on his little foot for the very first time,…

Hi, guys! How’s your week going? I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday afternoon. Monday and this morning totally flew by for me. Holy moly! It’s like they didn’t even happen. Or did they?! I dunno. Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday and today! Q knows how to have a good time! Look at that little smile. So adorable. I taught him all about butterflies (and pug-a-pillars) yesterday. He’s a big fan now. I ran…

Good morning! Happy Tuesday! Yesterday morning started bright and early with a trip to Marylou’s for iced coffee. Mal and I both dropped the ball on making another batch, so we ended up buying our morning cup of joe. As always, Murphy wanted to come for a ride in the car. Pugs love adventures. There are actually quite a few Marylou’s locations near our house (I know, I am so lucky), but I opted for…

Good morning! Happy Monday Tuesday! Here’s a little motivation to start your day off on the right foot! Workout This quote applied really well to yesterday’s CrossFit WOD. I’ve always been afraid of the 53-pound kettlebell (that ish is heavy!), but thanks to some encouragement from Mal and Kerrie (c’mon, you can do it!), it’s no longer (as) intimidating to me. I managed to do my very first WOD (besides farmers’ carries) with a 53-pound…

Good morning! I’m working on a new campaign with GNC called the “Total Lean Challenge,” which is a 12-week lifestyle program that includes nutrition, meal plans, workouts and video instruction, and community support. I was asked to share one of my workouts, so I turned a regular old trip to the dog park with Murphy into a 30-minute sweat session. Workout A trip to the dog park is always a great way to get moving and add a little…

I had a little fun in the kitchen baking with protein powder yesterday afternoon. Baking and protein powder? Yep, that’s right. Protein powder is actually a fairly versatile ingredient! I wanted to make something delicious, but also semi-healthy and satisfying to eat before or after a workout. With that said, here’s a tasty recipe for Chocolate Chip Protein Bars. Chocolate chips and vanilla protein powder combine to make a sweet, light, and fluffy treat packed with protein. I…

You know “The Count” from Sesame Street, right? Did you know his full name is Count von Count? I had no idea! Ok, I actually never really thought about it until today when I Googled him so I could create the image below: [image source] Did you catch what he said?!? 10 kipping pull-ups ahahah! That’s right, I did 10 kipping pull-ups today! Ten!!! It’s a frickin’ miracle. There were so many times in the…
