Since a bunch of you guys are likely traveling to see family and friends for the holiday this coming weekend, I thought a post about what I ate during my full days of travel to Mexico and back might be interesting and perhaps helpful to you. Maybe they will even inspire some of your food choices! Traveling to Mexico I packed my breakfast, which was a brown rice wrap with almond butter and banana slices…

Since I’m traveling today, I planned to write a travel-inspired blog post. I thought about doing the whole healthy travel thing, but I know I’ve done that before on CNC. You’ve seen me pack all kinds of healthy foods. You’ve read posts about my favorite travel-friendly meals and snacks. You’ve even seen me walk a mile to the commuter rail for a little extra exercise. Been there and done that with the healthy travel posts,…

Good morning! I’m off to the airport bright and early this morning to catch a flight to Portland, Oregon for Fitbloggin’. I am attending the conference on behalf of Reebok and Fitfluential, and I am super excited about it! Fitbloggin’ is my favorite fitness/blogger conference, and I always have so much fun at it! If you’re wondering what Fitbloggin’ is all about, feel free to check out my previous posts. I attended both Fitbloggin’ 11…

Heyyyyyy! It’s a hot one out there today! So hot, in fact, that Murphy and I needed to take a ride in the car to Marylou’s for an iced coffee (for me) and a Milk Bone (for him). The pug got so excited at the drive-up window this morning, I could barely order my drink over his barking! Haha! Breakfast I woke up bright and early this morning to finish a few last-minute items before…

Good morning! Happy Monday!  The weekend totally flew by for me. I was at a CrossFit Level 1 certification course all weekend, which was awesome, but a whirlwind at the same time. I learned SO MUCH in two days, which made me fall even more in love with CrossFit (super cheesy and true), but we packed a lot in. I am still trying to process it all, but I can’t wait to put all of…

Murphy totally knows when I’m leaving for a trip. Last night, when I packed up and laid-out my things, he paced around the house with a semi-panicked expression on his (adorable) pug face. And then, this morning, he woke up, ate breakfast (pug priorities), and then acted super bummed””not just tired like he sometimes is in the morning, but sad and mopey. I couldn’t bare to see his sad pug face (and I always hate…

Planes, trains, and automobiles”¦ and I’m home! Breakfast My alarm went off at 6:01 AM this morning. I woke up in Katie’s guest room, took a quick shower, packed up all of my stuff, ate a banana with peanut butter, and then headed to the airport to catch my flight home. It was a whirlwind weekend, but an awesome one, no doubt. At the airport, I bought an iced decaf latte made with almond milk….

Hi, friends! Thank you so much for all of your supportive comments on this morning’s post. It was a tough decision to make, but I know it’s for the best. And if you don’t have your health, you really don’t have much, so I’m glad I’m giving it a try. Snack A few hours after breakfast, I got hungry again, so I snacked on some blueberries. I finished off the pint. Lunch A short while later,…

Greetings from Alaska Airlines! Hooray for in-flight internet! My flight departed at 8:00 AM, so it was an early morning for me, especially since I still had some packing to finish. (Why do I always wait until the last-minute to finish packing? I know it’s going to stress me out. Blah. I never learn.) Once I was all packed up and ready to go, Mal and Murphy drove me to the commuter rail. I don’t…

Hi, friends! Remember my 10-Day Packing Challenge? If not, I basically tried to get all of this: Into these two carry-ons: I eventually made it happen, but it was quite the packing challenge! What I packed for my vacation: 4 t-shirts 2 long-sleeve shirts 4 tank tops 1 sweatshirt 3 pairs of shorts 2 pairs of jeans 1 pair of capris 5 bathing suits 4 bras (3 regular, 1 strapless) 12 pairs of undies 7…

Woohoo! Let the cruise adventures continue! The other excursion that Mal and I did on the cruise was a ziplining and tubing “adventure” tour in Belize. We were really psyched for this one! Once we departed the cruise ship, we boarded a bus, which drove us 1.5 hours to Jaguar Paw. During the drive, our tour guide shared interesting facts about Belizean culture, history, and geology. Once we arrived at Jaguar Paw, we were fitted with harnesses and…

Good morning! Only four days until Christmas!?! GAH! I still need to finish my holiday shopping. Anyone else? Workout Last night’s CrossFit workout was the hardest one so far. I say that a lot, don’t I? This WOD was especially challenging cardiovascular-wise. We did four rounds of “Drumsticks” for time, which meant we did 7 Thrusters (<— killer!) followed by a 400m run as fast as we could. We had done 5 sets of Hang…
