    Nothing Better Than Family Time, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, Communicating With Jasper, Everything Happens For A Reason, Fudgy Brownies

    Happy Friday!  Blog day…yay!  Oh boy….what do I want to talk about first from this past week?  Lots happened…good and bad.  But, I have to say, it was a pretty emotionally exhausting week.  I’ll get into it a bit, but probably not too many details.  First off…last weekend.  Patriots won the superbowl!  How about that game?  We started off at a friends house, but since it seemed like a flop, we left around 9:30 because the kids had school the next day, Scott had to get up early and it just didn’t seem worth staying up.  So, we got home, unpacked our stuff and headed up to bed.  Scott threw…

    I Miss My Hunny, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, OOTW, & Honey Lemon Chicken w/Asparagus

    Happy Fridayyyyyyy!!!!  It’s been such a long week.  And now it’s SOOOOOOO COLD!  Brrrrrr….  It’s been a long week mostly because my hubby has been in London since Sunday 🙁  But…he’s coming home today and I can’t wait!  I miss him.  And it’s tough having him gone all week.  Even though he’s been traveling for like…ever…I still hate when he’s gone.  I don’t sleep well.  I fall asleep ok, but I can’t stay asleep.  I wake up almost every hour.  Unbroken sleep is the worst!  I mentioned last week that this month my goal was to get 7 hours of sleep each night.  Well, that kind of went downhill this…

    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…

    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…
