Hi, friends! Happy New Year!!! With the new year kicking off today, I decided to write a special healthy eating edition of What I’m Loving Lately. I actually started my “January 1st” the day after Christmas””mostly to put an end to a week-long sugar and booze bender””so I’ve eaten pretty well and tried some new things recently and wanted to share what I’ve been loving lately. Hopefully, it will motivate you in 2016 to do the same! Enjoy! Hemp seeds…

Hello, friends! How’s your week going so far? Monday flew by for us. Here’s a little recap from our day! Quinn and I did our usually “baba” and iced coffee thing on the couch and then we ate breakfast shortly after that. Usually, Quinn doesn’t eat breakfast right away, but he was hungry yesterday. His new things at breakfast: 1) Wanting his blanket with him while he eats; 2) Putting covers on allthethings. His new…

Hi, friends! How’s your Hump Day going so far? Mal was at a workshop all week, so it’s been just Quinn and me (and Murphy) in the mornings, which have quickly become my favorite time of day. I look forward to hearing the little guy on the monitor (even if it’s insanely early) just so we can get up and hang out together. A morning “baba” is always the first thing on our agenda, so we cuddle…

Good morning! I’ve received a bunch of questions from readers asking about various parts of my marathon training and quite a few of them were related to recovery, so I wanted to share some of the things that I am doing “behind the scenes.” I truly believe that the combination of these things has kept my body happy and healthy (*knock on wood*) over the past 14 weeks. Let’s hope they continue to work, so I am…

Hello! I did a double workout yesterday afternoon, and, boy, am I feeling it today! I haven’t done much strength training lately, so Kerrie and I did a workout at KFIT. I used #85 for the shoulder-to-overheads (S2OH), sub-ed regular pull-ups for chest-to-bar (C2B), and did TRX triceps presses instead of ring dips. The scribble at the end of the workout is a 2k row. (We weren’t sure if we’d have time for it since…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I’m feeling a tad exhausted this morning after completing CrossFit Open WOD 15.1 on Friday night and then running 15.1 miles yesterday for my long run. After all of that activity, I am so thankful today is a rest day. Heck yes. Rewind to Friday night Mal and I are both participating in the CrossFit Open this year. I’m honestly not sure why I signed up, considering I’m training for a marathon and…

Guys, it’s snow madness over here! The governor declared a state of emergency and the National Guard was here in our town helping with snow removal yesterday. The snow banks are so high and parking lots are a total mess. There’s just nowhere to put it! And, not surprisingly, the schools in the area are worried about a number of safety issues related to the snow (i.e. kids waiting for the bus in the street since…

Gooooooood morning and happppppppy Friday! What a week. It was kind of a weird one with the blizzard and having Mal home for two days in a row. It seemed like a weekend, but now the weekend is here again. Whoa. Obviously, I’m not complaining. I love spending time with my boys””all three of them! Yesterday morning, I hit the treadmill for my long run this week. I thought about running outside, but after I consulted…

I bought a couple of sparkly Christmas trees at Marshalls yesterday, and they totally complete the look….

Good morning!!! Here’s another edition of A New Day In The Life! I really enjoy writing these posts as a way to document our new life with a baby, so here is a little snapshot into yesterday. 2:00 AM – Quinn wakes up. He’s making noises and kicking the crib, but he falls back to sleep. Thank goodness! 5:00 AM – Quinn wakes up again, but falls back to sleep. YESSSSS! 5:15 AM – Mal’s alarm goes off. He…
