Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! And happy birthday to Mal! We actually had a mini celebration at 5:45 this morning, but then we plan to have another one this afternoon – complete with presents, dinner, and Funfetti cupcakes. Have I mentioned how much I love birthdays? I can’t wait to celebrate Mal! 🙂 So, yesterday was quite the random day of eating. I almost always prioritize eating, but I was wrapped-up in errands and work…

Hi, guys! Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a really cool fitness event at the Derby Street Shoppes. It was called Cycle & Sweat, a family-fitness block party with all sorts of participating retailers, including Lululemon, ivivva, and Whole Foods Market among others. It was quite the event and right up my alley, so I’m especially glad that I had the chance to attend. The Cycle & Sweat Fitness Block Party featured three hours of exercise classes with all…

Hey, hey! Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in Cycle for Friendship at Legacy Place to benefit Best Buddies Massachusetts.

Hi, blog friends! Happy Friday! Yesterday started with a 45-minute spinning class with my best fitness buddy followed by chit-chat and iced coffee, which is one of my favorite ways to start the day. When Mal goes back to school in September, I am definitely going to miss these mornings. On my drive home from getting iced coffee, I received this text message from Mal: “Quinn is in the best mood today!” And I can’t tell you how happy…

Breakfast I started my day with an oldie, but goodie breakfast:…

I tried SoulCycle and loved it””like a crazy, ridiculous amount! I was invited to attend a free class at the new Chestnut Hill location along with my friend Kerrie, so we headed there yesterday afternoon for our very first SoulCycle experience… and, boy, was it an experience! Not surprisingly, the SoulCycle studio in Chestnut Hill was absolutely beautiful””just like everything in Chestnut Hill, right? Even the bathrooms and showers were fancy! When you walk in,…

So, last week was the week that I finally (really and truly) scaled back at CrossFit. Up until now, I’ve pretty much been able to stick to my usual workouts with a few exercise modifications here and there, but now I am really feeling pregnant, especially now that I am officially in my 3rd trimester (what what!). My belly is big, awkward, and uncomfortable in certain positions, so I’ve finally decided to take it down…

Hello, hello! I haven’t done a daily eats post in ages now, so I decided to put one together for you guys this afternoon. I love seeing what other people eat and getting ideas for my own meals, so I hope you find these kinds of posts helpful too. If so, I’ll be sure to include them in CNC’s regular rotation in the future. Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was quick and easy: a warm almond butter,…

Hi, guys! I can’t believe week 2 of the Get Healthy, Stay Healthy Challenge is almost over! How are you doing with logging your four workouts this week? I know it’s only Thursday and you still have a couple of days to go, but I figured this post would be a little kick in the butt if you haven’t completed or planned all four of your workouts yet!
