    Stay True, My Animal Communication Reading, Christmas Traditions, & Kielbasa & Pineapple Saute

    Happy Friday!¬† It’s blog day ūüôā¬† And I’m actually on time this week…YAY!¬† So, I wanted to chat about a few things this week.¬† Remember last week I talked about “never say never”?¬† A lot of times in our lives, we say this, but for me, I’ve learned every time I say it, I end up doing it.¬† But, when we are passionate about something and someone we are close to says “I will never” or doesn’t fully support you in what you are doing, it can be upsetting.¬† How come they don’t know the “never say never” rule?¬† Not everyone does.¬† Or maybe they are just stubborn.¬† But, as…

    No Wifi, Never Say Never, Why I Am The Way I Am, & Spicy Coconut Shrimp

    Ugh…it’s Friday. And my frustrations this week have been through the roof! ¬†Which is why this post is so late this week. ¬†First and least important, I didn’t have wifi for 3 days this week. I didn’t realize how much I relied on it until we didn’t have it. Not only for work, but the kids needed it for homework. So yeah…we got a hotspot, but that uses up so much data. And no….we don’t have unlimited data. And for some odd reason I couldn’t get on certain work websites on my phone. I was beyond frustrated. Oh….then there’s dealing with Comcast. Can you say frustrated even more? ¬†I’m sure…

    Own You Own Life, More Paleo Wine, & Paleo Caramel Apples

    Happy Friday! ¬†I’m feeling the TGIF this week. ¬†But, it’s a good thing. ¬†Want to know why? ¬†I’M BACK! ¬†This week I’m finally feeling like myself again. ¬†I went back to the gym on Monday….started to ease my way back in…and by Wednesday, I really felt like I could push myself again. ¬†It’s days like these that get me so motivated. ¬†Motivated to do better, motivated to be better. ¬†I quickly forget how much I thrive on exercising. ¬†Not just for the workout or to get stronger, but it’s about how it makes me feel. ¬†Working out makes me HAPPY! ¬†It gives me ENERGY. ¬†It sets the tone for my…

    Roasted or Rotisserie Chicken & Homemade Bone Broth

    Cold and flu season is upon us! ¬†That means we need to start to think about ways we can up our immune system and stay healthy! ¬†I’m sure a ton of you have read about bone broth. ¬†You can now buy good quality bone broth online, but why buy it when you can make it? ¬†You may think it’s hard, but trust me…it’s not. ¬†On many Sunday’s my husband, Scott, and I will roast up a full chicken…or 2….or make them on the grill. We LOVE it! Not only do we have chicken for the week (to use for lunches and emergency meals), but we always make a batch of…

    Just Show Up, Paleo Wine Review, New Shows, Stitch Fix, CSA, Gelatin Benefits & Cherry-Lime & Cherry-Coconut Gummies

    Happy Friday! ¬†Ok…let’s get it right out there, then I’ll move on. ¬†It’s been 16 days since I’ve worked out. ¬†I’m grumpy. ¬†Last Saturday I attempted to back…a full week after surgery…and it was a very bad idea. ¬†Actually it’s my own fault. ¬†The oral surgeon said I could go back to “normal activity”. ¬†She probably doesn’t realize what my “normal” is. ¬†I went upside and did a few hand-stand pushups and when I stood up, I was dizzy, blurry, and nauseous. ¬†It took me the whole day to recover from it. ¬†And Sunday I woke up and thought my face was going to explode. ¬†Basically my sinuses filled with…

    Not enough hours, Happy Mom, and Tequila Tacos

    How is it already Friday? ¬†Does anyone else feel like the days are just too short? ¬†I think if I could have about 4-5 extra hours a day, I’d be in much better shape. ¬†Not only would I get all my work done, but I just might be able to sit down for an hour at night. ¬†These days sitting is not happening! Well…I’m sitting now writing this, but I mean sitting and maybe watching TV…or reading a book. ¬†A friend told me I should start watching “Stranger Things” on Netflix. ¬†And when this friend tells me I should do something, I listen! ¬†But I can’t for the life of…

    Wisdom Teeth & Coconut Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

    Happy Wednesday! ¬†Who doesn’t love hump day? ¬†So, I’m pretty excited I have time this week to blog twice. ¬†But, I have to admit…it’s because I’ve been home a lot more due to my wisdom tooth removal…LOL! ¬†Being stuck at home allows you to get so much done! ¬†I’m healing…but it’s taking longer than I planned. ¬†I guess I should have listed to the doctor when they told me I wouldn’t be working out for a week after. ¬†I didn’t believe them. ¬†I sometimes think I’m indestructible. ¬†Surgery on Friday to me meant back to workouts on Monday. ¬†NOPE! ¬†I don’t think I’ll me making it at all this week.…

    No more wisdom, Poop, & Grilled Chicken Skewers w/Thai “Peanut” Sauce

    It’s Friday!!!! ¬†It’s supposed to be Fun Friday, right? ¬†Well…it’s kind of not today. ¬†Actually, I don’t think it’ll be fun at all. ¬†This morning, I’m heading in to get my 3 wisdom teeth removed (sigh). ¬†This is NOT fun. ¬†But…it needs to be done, so here I go. ¬†Let’s look at the bright side. ¬†I’ll be drugged up, forced to sleep, then will have to be waited on hand and foot the rest of the day. ¬†It can’t be that bad, right? ¬†We will see. ¬†You know what’s even worse than getting your teeth pulled? ¬†It’s getting your teeth pulled on your favorite day at Crossfit. ¬†I hate that…

    You have no idea how happy I am that it’s Friday!!! ¬†This has been the week from hell. Ok…it could’ve been worse. But it was not a great week. Actually the past few weeks, I’ve felt like I’m running on fast forward. But you know what? ¬†It’s OK! ¬†You know why? ¬†Apparently Mercury is in retrograde right now. Sooooo….it’s not ME! ¬†Lol. I have an excuse!! ¬†No wonder I’ve been a hot mess ?. ¬†Bring on the Paleo Wine!!! But seriously…hot mess doesn’t even describe it. If you follow me on FB and IG, you all may think I’ve got my shit together. But I don’t. Maybe sometimes, but it’s…
