Fitness Friday {Things are Starting to Get Real}


Alrighty! So, I’m starting to feel the pressure of everything happening at once in life. I received two inquiries yesterday with regarding to seeing the townhouse. Both wanted to see the townhouse this weekend, and the truth is, I’m not really ready to let someone traipse through what is still technically our home.

Plus, I wanted to at least give our hallway a fresh coat of paint. The carpets have already been shampooed, so at least that’s one thing checked off the to do list.

Speaking of paint—I still have one room left in the new house to paint (the guest room), and we want to make sure that gets done before our carpet is installed on the 23rd of this month.

Lots to do, and not a lot of time to do it in! Especially when it needs to get squeezed in between work, soccer practice, softball practice, making sure I get plenty of cuddle time with Kenzer, AND making sure I get some workouts in!

Speaking of workouts—this week’s were fairly short and sweet. I’ve been spending about 45 minutes in the gym for each session. This week looked [Continue reading...]

Fruit & Nut Protein Bar


If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you already know that I greatly dislike protein powder. You’re not ever going to catch me drinking a protein shake. Ever. (It would at least take some pretty serious convincing).

With that being said—I’m fully aware that proper amounts of protein is essential for muscle recovery and growth. I’m also aware it’s fairly difficult to get the proper amounts of proteins without some sort of supplementation. My way to get around it is to find or create recipes that use protein powder. I’ve found that when I add it to foods, it’s really not so bad after all.

I can’t take any credit for this recipe because the whole [Continue reading...]

K.I.S.S. {And Don’t Believe the Hype}


  I mentioned the other week that I recently recorded a podcast with Adam Bate for his Lifestyle Accountability show (it airs April 19th—I’ll send a link closer to the time). One of the questions he asked really stuck with me. (I’m paraphrasing) – “How do I decipher all the noise in the health & […]

Waving the White Flag & March in Review

  Well, Kenzer and I are officially waving the white flag. We surrender. When her pediatrician’s office opens this morning we’re heading in for an appointment. Yesterday she spent the day resting, drinking fluids, drawing, and torturing her old barbies by drawing bathing suits on them with Sharpies. She kept her fever at bay all […]
