Hi, friends! How’s it going? It’s time for another Monday In Meals post where I recap a day of my meals and snacks from, well, Monday. After some Sunday food prep, I tend to eat healthier at the beginning of the week, so I figured my eats might be good inspiration. Plus, CNC started out as a food journal, so it’s fun to take her back to her roots sometimes. And without further ado, here’s the next edition…

Good morning and happy Friday to you! The weekend is almost here, which means it’s time for another Friday favorite: What I’m Loving Lately! I missed last week’s post, so I have quite the round-up for you guys this morning. Enjoy! Coconut protein powder in my (hot) coffee – Of course, I love mixing it into my iced coffee, but it makes an incredible afternoon pick-me-up in hot coffee too. Just mix 12 ounces of coffee (not too hot)…

It was a gorgeous day in downtown Boston yesterday! It was a little chilly, but beautiful and sunny at the same time. My doctor’s appointment went well. It was short and sweet like I expected. My doctor wants to wean me off the Uceris over the next few weeks, which, truthfully, I am really worried about. I have had ZERO success weaning off steroids in the past, so I’m really trusting my doctor and hoping…

I tried. Really, I tried. I tried really hard to get an appetizing shot of this meal, but it just never happened. I apologize, and I assure you it’s a really tasty recipe. Just try to put the way it looks behind you, okay? When I posted a picture of this meal on Instagram the other night, a bunch of you guys wanted the recipe, so here it is. Again, I swear it tastes better…

A few weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a “Cinco de Swap” with Avocados from Mexico and The Motherhood. Along with some other bloggers, I was sent a $50 gift card to cover the cost of groceries to make a tasty avocado recipe. As you know, I love avocado, especially in the form of freshly made guacamole. At least once a week, I make a big batch of guac and eat it with…

Just a heads up: This is a super random blog post… and you’re welcome. Ha! Mal had today off from school since it’s Good Friday, so we (ok, him and Murphy) slept in and enjoyed a leisurely morning together. I actually had a terribly disturbing dream about Murphy being attacked by a big, white sea turtle (random), so I was all bugged out when I woke up and could not get back to sleep. Ok,…

A couple of hours after lunch yesterday, I had a craving for something cold and creamy””specifically, a “Bananas Foster” smoothie, which I’ve made almost every day since I created the recipe for Health.com last week. (FYI: I think it’ll be published next week.) It’s so frickin’ good. It’s basically a dessert smoothie, but the recipe calls for a couple of different flavored extracts, so it’s not crazy-high in calories, but tastes amazing. Obviously, I’m a little…

Good morning! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Twitter chat with Wayfair yesterday. I appreciate so many of you coming out for it. I hope you had fun! So, do you want to hear what woke me up this morning? Mal riffling through our bed looking for his wallet. I bet you’re wondering why his wallet was in our bed this morning. Oh, because he was a tad excited late last…

After lunch yesterday, I got ready to go to the gym. I put on my workout gear and then packed up my gym bag because I planned to take a shower at the gym before my doctor’s appointment. While I was packing, I thought it might be fun to show you guys what’s in my gym bag. Here’s what’s in my gym bag: Lug Life Cartwheel Overnight/Gym Bag: This is the best gym (and overnight)…

Good morning! Just a quick reminder about the Twitter chat I’m hosting with Wayfair today. We’re giving away $25 gift cards every 10 minutes! Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was my beloved French Toast Breakfast Scramble with blueberries mixed in. Oh, how I love this breakfast. I also added a couple of scoops of Teddie peanut butter and drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast. Lunch When lunchtime rolled around, I threw together a bunch of…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! Last night, I went to my cousin Heidi’s house for dinner and drinks. She and her husband, Matt, just bought a house, so they invited Mal and me, her sister, Meeghan, and her boyfriend, and my sister and her husband over to see their new place. The evening started with a wonderful spread of appetizers. Roasted garlic —> mashed into a paste + olive oil = amazing!!! There was also all…

Hi, friends! How are you? I hope Tuesday is treating you well! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was the usual (French Toast Breakfast Scramble), but I added fresh raspberries and almond butter (x 2) this time. I know, I’m totally unpredictable. Workout After breakfast, I took Murphy to the dog park. I planned to run 5 miles today, but my quads are smoked from yesterday’s WOD, so I switched it up with a 2-mile run/walk with…

After CrossFit last night, Mal and I came home, made ourselves protein shakes, and then exchanged presents since he picked “buy each other a small gift” for our 24 Days of Togetherness. I ended up buying Mal a copy of Men’s Journal. He loves magazines, but rarely ever buys them for himself (unless we’re at the airport). This particular issue had a big “Gear of the Year” section as well as an article called “The…

Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! After breakfast, I went to the dentist for a 6-month check-up and cleaning. Thankfully, I have nothing exciting to report (no cavities! hooray!), but I probably need to get a new mouthguard in the next month or so because I ground a hole right through mine. Mouthguards are expensive ($500+), so my dentist said I could hold off for a little while, but…

Check out what I woke up to yesterday morning! Yikes! Happy Halloween from my husband. He’s such a joke-ster. I wasn’t expecting to see a skull on the pillow next to me when I woke up, but it actually didn’t startle me all that much. It scared the crap out of Murphy though! After I saw the skull, I got up and left the pug sleeping in bed. I went into the kitchen to make…
