I’m loving my box’s Quote of the Week: Great, right? It’s a little (big?) something to think about on this fine Thursday. Breakfast I woke up craving peanut butter this morning, so I made a French Toast Breakfast Scramble and loaded it up with a huge scoop of Teddie and then went back for a second scoop a little while later. Yay, peanut butter! I also drank a glass of iced Dandy Blend with organic…

Hi, friends! I’m home! Hooray! Mal and I only exercised one day on our vacation, but it was a great workout (short and sweet) with especially beautiful scenery. Together, we created a 15-minute, CrossFit-inspired workout (AMRAP 15) that we did outside on the morning of the wedding. (I love that you can WOD anywhere!) The resort where we stayed for the weekend had a tennis court, so we used it as our “home base” for…

Hi, friends! A bunch of you guys asked for additional details about the Paleo Challenge I’m doing with my CrossFit box. I asked my coaches if I could share some of the specifics on my blog and they agreed, so here they are: The Paleo Diet is an effort to eat like we used to back in the day… WAY back in the day. If caveman couldn’t eat it, neither can you. This means anything we…

You know what makes exercising a lot of fun? PUGS!!! Murphy kept me entertained as I worked out in the backyard yesterday afternoon. The WOD: 100 push-ups + 100 sits-up + 100 air squats for time. As you can see, I had lots of pug motivation to get me through it. I broke the 100 reps into two sets of 50 for each exercise, but you could break them into 4 sets of 25 reps…

If you’re looking for a healthy pad thai recipe, I have just the one for you! It’s actually a paleo pad thai recipe and could even probably be counted as a keto pad thai recipe. No matter how you categorize it, it’s a winner! This dish is made with coconut aminos, spaghetti squash, and the most amazing pad thai sauce called “sunshine sauce.” Even the sauce alone is delicious. I’ve made it a number of…

Warning: spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Bachelorette yet, please stop reading or skip ahead to my dinner. Good morning! Happy Monday! Did anyone else catch the season finale of The Bachelorette last night? [image source] I’m so happy that Emily picked Jef (I think he’s adorable and he reminds me a lot of Mal), but I totally didn’t see it coming. For some reason, I thought she might not pick…

Woohoo! Two CrossFit workouts in less than 24 hours! It feels so good to be back at it! Well, hello, CrossFit 781. Oh, how I missed you. Workout Yesterday’s WOD was the perfect way to ease me back into CrossFit. After we warmed-up, we spent 15 minutes on one of our “GOATS.” Of course, I picked Kipping Pull-ups (since they’re my nemesis). I don’t know if it was watching the women at the CrossFit Games…

The first half of Saturday went like this: breakfast, Reebok presentation, WOD, lunch. It was sort of like a WOD sandwich with a little bit of Reebok mixed in between meals. Ok, that was a totally weird sentance. Did it even make sense? Let’s just go with it, ok? Breakfast Bright and early on Saturday morning, Reebok hosted a continental breakfast at the hotel where I was staying. Since my body was on East coast…

Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday! Have any big plans for the 4th of July tomorrow? Mal and I are still figuring out what we’re going to do, but whatever it is, it’s going to involve sun (I hope) and fun! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was Greek yogurt with trail mix, fresh raspberries, and a scoop of almond butter. As soon as I finished eating it, I wanted something more, so I ate half of a banana…

I love this quote. And it reminds me of a conversation I had with Mal a few weeks ago. On the drive home from CrossFit one night, I was bummed about the workout I had just done. I finished and had fun, but I wasn’t especially proud of my performance. I actually had a few workouts that week I wasn’t super happy with performance-wise, so I asked Mal how he thought I could improve. He…

Hot day here! Mal and I were supposed to go to the beach with some of our friends after CrossFit this morning, but they called us mid-morning to say that the parking lot was totally full and the traffic getting there was absolutely infuriating. Boo. So, instead of sitting in a hot car stuck in traffic for hours, we decided to stay home instead. It’s been a pretty low-key day around here. Breakfast I woke…

You know it’s going to be a good day when you find out that your workout is called “Heavy Shit Roulette.” Obviously, I was super psyched for this WOD. Breakfast Before I headed to CrossFit this morning, I ate breakfast, which was a pancake made with Kodiak Cake Mix, an egg, and chia seeds. The pancake I ate yesterday morning didn’t hold me over very well, so I threw in an egg for some added…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MAL!!! [Image by my very talented friend Jon, who meets celebrities like Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. He actually hung out with them over the weekend. No big deal.] I’m not sure who’s more excited about Mal’s 30th birthday today””him or me! Breakfast This morning, I woke up before Mal’s alarm went off, so I could make him a big ol’ birthday breakfast before he headed to work. His breakfast: 2 eggs,…

Oh my goodness, I have so much to tell you guys about the blogger event at Reebok yesterday. I don’t event know where to start. The Reebok headquarters is actually pretty close to where I live, so I slept at home the night before the event and met the other bloggers in the morning at the hotel where they stayed. A few of them wanted to try my beloved Marylou’s iced coffee, so I brought…

CrossFit night out was a lot of fun! A group of about twenty people from our box met at King’s where we enjoyed some cocktails, sang some karaoke, and got our bowl on. (I bowled an impressive 58.) I had a blast, but I was a bad blogger and only took three photos. Here’s one of them: Clearly, the CrossFit 781 crew is a fun bunch. Breakfast I wasn’t planning to go to CrossFit this morning, but when…
