Good morning and happy Monday, friends! Let’s kick off the week with a killer workout! Are you guys ready for this one? It incorporates two of my favorite, full-body movements (Man Makers + running) for a seriously high-intensity and challenging workout. It’s a “good” one for sure! How to do this workout: Perform 10 Man Makers and then run 400 meters. After that, you’ll do 9 Man Makers followed by a 400 meter run. Then, 8 Man Makers,…

Hi, friends! I’m just popping in to share some photos from the last couple of days. Our little family is trying to soak up our final days of summer together, so we purposely planned some low-key days this week because the season will be over before we know it. Doesn’t it feel like July 4th was just the other day? It was a whirlwind summer for sure. Anyway, here we go! This morning: Quinn checking out the bagel options while…

Hey, hey! Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday as well as a cool fundraiser that I am participating in this weekend and some delicious smoothie and juice recipes from my new book. Ok, here goes! 3:00 AM… Murphy is not a fan of early morning feedings, especially when he’s not the one being fed. Poor pug. His life is so hard. Pre-WOD eats: Toast with almond butter and banana with a side of baby…

My CrossFit box did “Dirty Diana” a few weeks ago, and I saved it as a “must do” workout for at home. I finally had a chance to do it this past weekend, and it was definitely a lung-smoker! For this workout, you only need a kettlebell, timer, and some space to run (outside or on a treadmill). I also used a yoga mat, but only because I didn’t want to scrape up my knees on…

Hi, friends! I have another fun WOD for you guys! It’s called “Death By Slamball,” and it’s a tough one! For this workout, you only need 2 pieces of equipment: a slamball and a timer. (I used the one on my iPhone.) Here’s how it works: Start your timer and then, every minute, add one slamball rep to the rep scheme. So, starting with the first minute, you perform one rep. After that, the remaining time is…

Hi, friends! I did an awesome driveway WOD over the weekend, so I wanted to share it with you guys. To do this workout, you only need two pieces of equipment (plate + dumbbell) and a little bit of space. (You could also sub the dumbbell for the plate for the walking lunges.) I brought the necessary equipment outside, played some tunes, and then got to work while my favorite guys kept me company in the driveway. I had…

Hi, guys! Happy, happy, happy Tuesday to you! Just wanted to share my no-fail recipe for green juice with you. I pretty much drink some variation of this recipe most days of the week. It also works with a variety of fruits, so feel free to play around! No-Fail Green Juice 2 apples (or 2 pears, 1 apple + 1 pear, 2 oranges, 1 apple + 1 orange”¦ you get the idea) 1 cucumber 1/4…

So, I guess last week was just a blah week for my workouts because I felt a whole lot better this week. I had plenty of energy and basically felt like my old self””minus, of course, the extra 30 pounds on my body! Haha! Sunday: Off Monday: 2-mile dog walk + CrossFit Kerrie and I took Bentley and Murphy to the dog park to let them run out some of their doggie energy. And then…

Happy Saturday, friends! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about pregnancy and exercise lately (CrossFit, specifically) and, while I am not a doctor, I thought I’d share my experience moving forward, especially now since it’s getting a little more challenging to work out with my ever-growing baby bump. Prior to 20 weeks, my workouts weren’t much different. Sure, I was tired and battling all-day morning sickness during my first trimester, but things were mostly…

Hi, guys! Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! [source] How was your weekend? Or perhaps you’re enjoying a long weekend today? My weekend was nice and included some relaxation, CrossFit, friends, and good food”¦ all the makings of a wonderful weekend. Friday night, I made some spicy green juice for Mal and me, which we drank during Happy Hour while catching up with our DVR. Confession: I miss drinking. There’s just something about enjoying a…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend! Mine was quite lovely. On Friday night, I hung out with my favorite guys. There was a lot of DVR, cuddling, and general laziness. (Pugs make the best pillows; they smell like Fritos.) Murphy is a big fan of cuddling my stomach. I guess he likes to keep the baby warm or maybe he’s trying to hatch him or something? Or maybe he’s just…

Good morning! Happy Monday! Some random tidbits for the morning: FREE CANDY! You can get a package of M&Ms or a Snickers (or any “Mars chocolate single”) for FREE at CVS this week with your ExtraCare card! Hey, I’m excited. I have a special love affair with peanut M&Ms. The Harvest Your Bundle Sale ends tonight at midnight! Hop on it to get some amazing health and wellness resources for just $39! I posted the…

Christmas Eve day started with a CrossFit workout. The WOD, “Twelve Days of Christmas,” is a yearly tradition at 781 and tons of members come out for it (usually sporting red and green), so I was especially excited about getting my sweat on! This workout is performed like the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” (we did a similar WOD last Christmas Eve), so we started with 1 Power Clean and then did 2 Front…

Good morning and happy, happy Friday! Breakfast My day started with Dunkin’ Donuts! Yay! Last night, when Mal and I were in bed about to fall asleep, we started talking about breakfast this morning. Mal likes to treat himself to Dunkin Donuts on Fridays (he loves their iced coffee and bagel sandwiches), so he asked me if I wanted him to get me something in the morning. Usually, I just say no thanks, but last…

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…
