    I Still Need To Rest, Stop The E-Mail Madness, Intuitive Readings, Aerial Yoga, Crossfit Opens & Easy Greek Chicken w/Tzatziki

    Happy Monday!  Yup…It’s school vacation and I’m three days late on this blog!  Actually, I wrote most of it on time, then ran out of time and didn’t get it out.   So, I’m thinking I may need to change the day I write and post my blog.  Why?  Well, I typically start writing on Thursday night, then finish off and post on Friday morning. But….end of the week is not only hectic, but on Thursday nights, I just want to sit and relax!  Remember I’ve talked about that sit relax thing I wanted to work on this year?  IT HASN’T HAPPENED YET!!!  So, I need to find the time. And…

    Snow & Stress, Kids Allergies & Confusion, OOTW & Chicken Tortilla Pie

    Happy Friday!  Blog day!  So, my week this week wasn’t much different than last week….unfortunately.  Because last week was pretty sucky.  It was two things…stressful and snowy.  Another snow day for the kids and also another delay.  Ok, mother nature….I’ve had enough of the snow!  Yesterday, my hubby was gone all day, so trying to be a good wife, I attempted to shovel the driveway so he didn’t have to do it when he got home at 7:30 or today.  I refuse to use or even learn how to use the snow blower. That thing scares the crap out of me!  Plus, snow would end up being all of the…

    Healthy Food Tastes Good, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, It’s Good to Get Lost in a Hospital, OOTW, & Bacon Wrapped Garlic & Herb Meatloaf

    Happy FriYAY!!!  We made it!  Another week down.  I had a pretty good week, actually.  I can’t complain.  Last weekend we had some friends over to watch the Patriots game.  It’s always a good evening when they win, but the company helps 😉  Since Scott and I were in the middle of a Shred10, we made sure we had plenty of compliant game foods.  Buffalo wings, my brother made brisket, ribs…it felt like a meat fest! LOL!  I also made veggies with homemade ranch dressing, paleo artichoke dip with carrots for dipping, shrimp, and a paleo coleslaw made with my homemade mayo.  I, of course, had some fruit for dessert.…

    New Year, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, My First Reiki Experience, & Kicked Up Cashew Berry Smoothie Bowl

    Happy Friday!!!  Actually…Happy New Year!!!  I know, I know…New Year is long gone. But actually, not for me. Being away in Hawaii for 10 days and not being home for New Years, made this week my New Year. So here I am…New year, new goals, new opportunities. I have to say, I’m pretty excited for the possibilities. My expectations are pretty high, so hopefully I can fulfill them…LOL! We will see!  But really…whatever happens, happens for a reason, so we just flow through and enjoy the ride, right? My trip to Hawaii was awesome, but I was so happy to be home. It’s amazing how much I thrive in my…

    Thanksgiving, OOTW, I’ve Kept a Secret for a Year, & Butternut Squash Lasagna

    Happy Friday!!  Is everyone recovering from a fun day full of turkey and pie? ??  And maybe some cocktails? ??  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. I really enjoy this holiday and it’s my hubby’s favorite. Food, friends, family and fun. And of course…relaxation. We started our day off at CrossFit Free getting in a WOD with our amazing community. It’s always a blast working out with this crew and spending special days with them. Yesterday was a team WOD, which makes it even more fun. Especially when you’ve got an awesome partner and you laugh through the entire workout. ???‍.  Sometimes you just have…

    Blank Mind, Pay Attention, Stranger Things, & Coconut Cassava Chicken Fingers w/Honey Mustard Sauce

    So, it’s Friday….I’m sitting here and I  have to say…my mind is blank this week.  It’s been quite a week for reasons I can’t explain right now, but my focus this week was not on food and coming up with new recipes for the blog.  The good news is…I’ve been eating fantastic because last weekend I prepped sooooo much food!  I’m also doing a 10-day shred with a big group of clients and have been so excited about it.  They are on day 4 today and I’m happy I decided to join them.  It’s kept me focused on not eating crap….especially Halloween candy!  Oh, I ate plenty of halloween candy…

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

    Happy Friday!  It’s blog day 🙂  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…

    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…
