Holy crap, June flew by! Clearly, time flies when you’re having fun because it was, by far, my favorite month of 2012. Here are my top posts from June:
My CrossFit box is doing a Paleo challenge right now and everyone who is participating is swapping recipes, so I decided to compile a bunch of my favorites to share. Here are some Paleo recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy!
At Mal’s Super Awesome Birthday Weekend, a few of us started talking about Kool-Aid””probably because of some sort of reference to drinking the “CrossFit Kool-Aid,” which Mal and I have apparently guzzled. The two of us have actually become those annoying people who talk about one thing (CrossFit) all the time to our friends.
I’m happy to report that Mal enjoyed a super awesome birthday celebration in Maine this weekend! I rented a house in Old Orchard Beach for Friday and Saturday nights, invited a bunch of friends to stay over, and we celebrated Mal’s 30th birthday to its fullest. Here are some of the highlights from the weekend!
The other day, Fitfluential asked their ambassadors to create a Fitness Bucket List on Pinterest. I have a Life Bucket List, which includes a number of fitness-related goals, but not a list specifically devoted to all things fitness, so I immediately created one. I mean, how motivating is a Fitness Bucket List?
I pretty much ate and drank my face off this weekend at BlogHer Food. I literally ate all day long for four straight days. Of course, I don’t regret a single bite (it’s all part of the experience), but, even still, I’m ready to get back on track with my healthy eating habits. Here’s how I get back on track.
It’s my birthday! I’m 32 years old young today! I’ve always loved cake. I have to admit, 31 wasn’t my favorite year, especially compared to the year before. Thirty was a big year for me: I ran a marathon, bought a house, and wrote a book, so it’s not surprising that 31 had a tough time living up to it.
Thanks for all of the birthday wishes yesterday! You guys are the best! I started my 32nd birthday the best way I know how””with a Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffee from Marylou’s! Breakfast For breakfast, Mal took me to Strawberry Fair in Norwell. It’s such an adorable place!
Murphy and I both agree that “Yappier Hour” at the Liberty Hotel was an awesome way to celebrate our birthdays. We both had a fantastic time last night! Over breakfast yesterday morning, Mal and I played 20 Questions to guess what he had planned for my birthday.
It’s Monday morning and, boy, do I have a treat for you guys! Over the weekend, I figured out how to make peanut butter-flavored iced coffee at home. Oooh, yes, I did. Are you ready for this? Your life might never be the same again.
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’ve been receiving a ton of questions about CrossFit lately””I love that you guys are so curious about it””so here’s a Q & A that answers some of them.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for awhile now since I finally feel in control of my sugar cravings. I guess you could say it’s been a long journey to kick my sugar habit once and for all. It definitely didn’t happen overnight. In fact, it took me a solid year and a half to truly overcome it.
