Our little dude turned 17 months old yesterday, so I wanted to write a “day in the life” post as a way to remember the day. When Quinn was first born, I used to blog about our daily adventures once a month, and it was such a great way to remember those times. I love going back and remembering what life was like at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc. And, of course, I…

Helloooo! A bunch of you guys asked me how I make my steel-cut oatmeal in the crock pot and, let me tell you, it’s crazy easy! Are you ready for this? The recipe is only 3 ingredients, and I love how simple and versatile it is. I add all sorts of delicious ingredients to my oatmeal to jazz it up so I’m not eating the same old thing more after morning. Current favorites: Stonyfield Greek yogurt, pureed banana (like what…

Hi, friends! You know that game “Two Truths and a Lie?” Well, if not, it’s an icebreaker game. You think of three statements about yourself: two are true statements and one is false. Then, the other people guess which one is a lie. Simple as that! I thought this game would make a fun post, so here are 10 truths and a lie””many of which are based on things that happened yesterday, but some are totally…

Helloooooo! Happy Friday! Just wanted to pop in with a little recap of yesterday’s happenings and let you know that my knee is better! Woohoo! I iced the crap of it and took two days of rest and (*knock on wood*) it’s good as new! Pre-run eats: Slow cooker steel cut oats with a scoop of peanut butter, two eggs (I ate them before snapping a picture), and an iced coffee with SO Delicious French vanilla creamer. After breakfast,…

Good morning! Look who tried to come to CrossFit with us last night! There’s been a lot of CrossFit talk in our house lately, so I guess Murphy wanted to see what it’s all about. Look at that sad, sad, sad pug face. Poor guy. He was so bummed he couldn’t come along for a ride in the car. Unfortunately (for Murphy), pugs and CrossFit just don’t mix. Workout Last night’s WOD was the hardest…

Good morning, friends! CrossFit was so fun last night! We did “The Dirty Dozen” and the workout flew by! The Dirty Dozen is a common CrossFit “benchmark” workout that many gyms use to monitor progress as you get stronger, fitter, and faster. The Dirty Dozen is a timed workout, so down the road when we do it again, I’ll be able to see if I improved. WOD: “The Dirty Dozen” For time: 25 Walking lunges…

CrossFit was so fun! And challenging! And awesome! I’m almost positive I’m going to join. It’s exactly the kick in the butt I need! Yesterday afternoon, I went to CrossFit 781 to check it out and do an intro consultation with one of the coaches. I knew CrossFit wasn’t a typical gym, but I didn’t expect it to be located in a loading dock in an industrial park. Pretty cool, right? Inside was a huge…

Good morning! Happy Monday! Steel cut oats and I have a love-hate relationship. After eating and loving the steel cut oats at La Pain Quotidien, I went out and bought some to make at home. It’s been about a month since I bought the canister of steel cut oats, but I still haven’t made them. The main reason: they’re a lot of work to cook! The recommended preparation for steel cut oats is boiling water…
