Hi, guys! I’m a little behind on “live” blogging, but I wanted to share this post since I get questions ALL the time about how I count macros on the weekends. And, truthfully, I typically take breaks from tracking on Fridays and Saturdays (sometimes Sundays too), but I still “game plan” my food choices – just so I don’t go totally off the rails. Not that there’s anything wrong with letting loose every once in…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! I’m a little behind on “day in the life” updates, but I’m working on getting them live on CNC ASAP. Summer is a FUN time for our family, so I want to remember these times and, of course, share them with you all. Plus, I heard they’re your favorite kind of blog posts, so I’ll be sure to keep ’em coming! This “day in the life” post is actually from last…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was awesome all around! So much, in fact, I broke up my recap into two separate blog posts because I just had so much to say about our weekend. Shall we get to it? Yes? YES?! Ok, here we go with a typical yet awesome Saturday recap! Saturday morning started like a lot of them with a fun partner workout at CrossFit. Mal and I…

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! 🙂 Just wanted to pop in real quick with a “day in the life” blog post since I feel like I haven’t done one in awhile. I’m making some fun behind-the-scenes changes over here, so I’m hoping to bring them back a little more often. Plus, I heard you guys enjoy them the most! 🙂 This morning started like most do: Iced coffee mixed with “iced tea that tastes liked coffee”…

Hey, hey! I completed my first week of workouts at OPEX, and I’m feeling really great overall! I actually don’t *feel* like I’m working out all that much, but I’m starting to realize I need to change my thinking about that. I think a lot of us – myself included – believe that you need to feel exhausted and sore after a workout for it to “count.” I remember going all out, 6 days a…

Happy Monday, friends! Quinn and I had quite the weekend together. Mal was away, so it was just the two of us and we ended up staying quite busy! Friday I picked up Quinn from school on Friday afternoon, and we headed straight to Target. The kid is obsessed – I mean, aren’t we all? He loves looking at the toys. And, this time, I let him get one – a new Transformer, and he…

Good morning, friends! And a very happy Monday to you! I love a good High Low High blog post, so here’s a recap of our weekend. It shares both the high and low points from it. I always like to focus on the positive side of things, so there’s typically more highs than lows! 🙂 With that, here’s how our weekend went. And, of course, I’d love to hear about your weekend too, so feel free to share some…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday to you!! I signed up for a 10K later this spring, so I recently up-ed my running game with a 4-mile and a 5-mile run last week. Surprisingly, I felt pretty darn good during both of them – no hip pain and only a little tightness on my left side. I mean, I was barely running a few weeks ago, so I’ll take it! Now, my goal is to just stay…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Today is totally getting away from me. It’s been a busy – yet productive – day, so no complaints, but, whoa, the day has really flown by. My morning started bright and early with some work followed (almost immediately) by a glass of iced coffee with chocolate peanut milk and a rice cake with peanut butter and banana slices on top. Quinn slept until almost 6:45 AM (!!), so I (mostly)…

Hi, guys! It’s finally nap time here, so I just wanted to pop in with a quick recap of our morning. Quinn’s school is closed today (they’re without power), so we had a fun “gym day” together. Early this morning, when I asked him if he was excited for our upcoming adventures, his response was: “Gym days make me crazy, crazy happy!” I mean, is that not the cutest thing ever? 🙂 I love that…

Hi, guys! Happy Saturday! We had quite the eventful Friday night. We got a crazy rain and wind storm yesterday and ended up losing power for a few hours. We ate dinner via candlelight, which was kind of fun and reminded me of times as a kid when we lost power. Our dinners were kind of ridiculous – I ate tortilla chips, cheese, and pepperoni – but, hey, we made it work. The power came…

Hey, hey! Happy Friday! Just popping in real quick to talk BOOKS! I’ve already plowed through two in 2018, so I want to try to read (at least) one a month for the rest of the year. The contenders are below, but, first, let me give you a quick recap of my morning! My day started well before 6:00 AM, but I had a leftover “Tree Chugger” (iced coffee, Maple Water, cinnamon, and almond milk)…

Good morning, friends! I haven’t written a Monday In Meals post in quite awhile, so I figured it was about time for another. If you’re new to this blog post series, I document what I ate throughout the day on Monday. If you’re a long-time reader, you probably remember the early days of CNC when I used to document ALL of my meals and snacks, food journal-style, and sometimes I would blog 3 times per day. Isn’t that crazy!?…
