Good morning! Guess what day it is!? [source] Happy Hump Day!!! Of course, Mal and I started our day by quoting the “Happy as a Camel on Hump Day” commercial. The “Mike, Mike, Mike”¦” part is my favorite, which, obviously, translated to “Mal, Mal, Mal”¦ what day is it, Mal?” Haha! Ok, we’re five years old. So, I ran 10 miles yesterday! Yay! (I still get excited about long runs in the double digits!) I…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve enjoyed a wonderful weekend so far! Fitness-wise, last week wasn’t a great one for me. I was struggling with a flare, so, obviously, I didn’t feel 100% or super psyched about doing any sort of physical activity. However, I managed to fit in a few workouts, including a 10-mile run (which was awesome), so I actually feel pretty good about last week’s workouts. And, hey, I’m starting to…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! Just checking in with a quick post about the CrossFit-inspired workout that I did with celebrity trainer Yumi Lee yesterday morning. Reebok arranged this workout for our media group, and it was a lot of fun (and a lot harder than I expected – more on that in a second). Yumi has trained all sorts of professional athletes and Hollywood’s elite, including Jessica Alba, Brad Pitt, Nicole Richie, and Hugh Jackman,…

Yowsahs. It was a hot week of workouts. The temps were in the mid- to upper-90s all week long, so I was a sweaty, dipping mess for all of my workouts. It’s truly incredible how much I sweat””Mal too. We always joke that we’re the King and Queen of Sweat at CrossFit because we’re always drenched at the end of a workout and so much more than anyone else. Doesn’t that just mean our bodies…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! The weather here wasn’t great (until yesterday), so mine was pretty low-key, but still enjoyable. Here’s a quick recap! Saturday Saturday morning started bright and early with a CrossFit workout. We did “Murph,” a hero workout in honor of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, NY, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. The class started with our coach explaining the…

Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Breakfast I started yesterday morning with my favorite (current) breakfast: green juice + a toasted, gluten-free English muffin with peanut butter and banana on one side and sunflower butter and banana on the other side. I could seriously eat this breakfast every morning. It’s the perfect combo””delicious, nutritious, and satisfying! After breakfast, I got to work. Since I’m leaving for…

Whomp whomp. I was pumped for the Filthy Fifty last night, but, unfortunately, things just didn’t go as planned with my performance. I was obviously happy to just be able to CrossFit (a chronic illness definitely changed my perspective), but I still wasn’t thrilled with my time, especially since it was 3.5 minutes slower than my previous attempt. Whomp whomp indeed. I love the Filthy Fifty because it’s all things CrossFit””10 different exercises that just…

Alternate post title: “Secret Physique Hingham, Murphy Likes Cupcakes & My WODs Are In A CrossFit Magazine,” but I thought it was ridiculously too long. After breakfast yesterday morning, I headed to Secret Physique in Hingham to take my friend Chrissy’s class. She texted me on Tuesday night to see if I wanted to go since her husband was also taking the class. We’ve been trying to get together for a few weeks now, so…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast kind of bombed, but it still tasted delicious. I made Plantain Pancakes with Maple Coconut Cream and Toasted Walnuts again, but I was impatient and turned up the heat too high on the stove, so my pancakes stuck to the pan and fell apart. I wasn’t about to waste food, so I put the pieces in a bowl, added some Maple Coconut Cream on top,…

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)…

Today has been a fabulous day for a lot of reasons, but one of them is not my laptop. More on that a minute. Let’s first recap the good parts of my day so far! Breakfast This morning, I brought back my favorite French Toast Breakfast Scramble and added it to an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar. It was so, so good. I’m glad that I tried some new breakfasts this week, but I’m a…

Hi, guys! After breakfast yesterday morning, I got my sweat on with this at-home chipper! I forgot to time myself, but this workout took me awhile to finish (maybe 20 minutes?) and it left me a tired, sweaty mess. I took multiple breaks during it to catch my breath and let my muscles recover. This one is definitely a butt-kicker! Lunch After my at-home WOD, I showered up and then reheated some Loaded Baked Potato…

Good morning! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was low-key, but wonderful just the same. Breakfast I started Sunday with a piece of delicious French Toast Bake topped with strawberries and maple syrup. I later ended up adding a couple of scoops of peanut butter for some staying power. Holy yum! Workout After breakfast, I headed to open gym with Mal. Our box did “Barbara” on Monday, but we missed it and were pretty…

Would you rather be really fast or really strong? I’ll let you think about it while I recap my eats from yesterday. How’s that sound? Breakfast My day started with a French Toast Breakfast Scramble in a jar (FTBSIAJ) with extra Teddie peanut butter. Even though there’s peanut butter on the sides and bottom of the jar, I always add more. Not joking, I probably eat 4-5 tablespoons (2-3 big scoops) of nut butter every…

Hi, friends! Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for Turkey Day tomorrow? I can’t believe it’s already here and the holiday season is upon us. It’s my favorite time of year, so I’m not complaining, but, wow, it came fast! Workout I was actually looking forward to last night’s CrossFit class. Ok, I look forward to all of them, but this one especially because it had Power Cleans in it. Cleans aren’t my favorite lift, but…
