4 & 5 Things About Me Survey

With no appetite thanks to feeling like I had the stomach bug yesterday, and lack of motivation in the food department, today there won’t be the typical What I Ate Wednesday post. We will pick back up with that link-up next week, so instead, I decided to participate in the latest survey to hit the blogosphere!

Wearing the Monday Blues & How I Don’t Die of Boredom on the Stairmaster

The Monday blues were in full effect yesterday. I rocked my new thermal Duke blue scarf yesterday, along with dark wash jeans, and my blue TOMs. I refuse to admit that the cold weather is here and am wearing these until snow becomes the norm.

Yesterday’s snack –> 4 oz of turkey, 1 perfectly-cooked hard-boiled egg, and 2 oz sweet potatoes.

Yesterday was a rest day for me, so I tried to keep as busy as […] Continue Reading…

A Fabulous Weekend

What a wonderful, wonderful weekend. It’s funny how when you actually surround yourself with amazing people, good times ensue. :)

I kicked off my weekend on Friday by heading to my cousin, Lindze’s house, to spend the evening with her, her husband Mike, and their son, Lucas. A face you know all too well on this blog. 

While momma cooked us tacos, we tried to play in the living room, but Lucas has a new obsession […] Continue Reading…

Getting My Mojo Back

I got my mojo back yesterday, and it was really nice.

I finally made it back to CrossFit after about 9 days off. Not good Allie, not good. Yesterday I switched my membership package from unlimited classes a week, to 3 classes per week. This will get me back into the classes, stay accountable, andddddd I save $15 each month, which means I can increase my monthly car payment to get rid of that cloud of […] Continue Reading…

WIAW: Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars OMG!
pencils and pancakes granola bars

So I am really glad that we all agree that when it comes to Petco (future) boyfriend, that it’s fate. First I see him at Petco, and then smack dab at the gym. I have decided that I am going to buy a goldfish each week. Why can’t he work at a normal retail store like Target. No one ever needs a reason to go there. That or I will just bring Kip to the […] Continue Reading…

It Was a Really Good Monday

Mondays are meant for staying wrapped up under your blankets and covers.

Not waking up at 5:20 am and going to CrossFit and having to do thrusters. Thrusters on a Monday. No. I had planned to, but when I woke with my alarm, my body said no. And so I threw sparkles and jewels on, and went to work.

On Sunday I headed to Target to spoil myself with a gift card I received for Halloween […] Continue Reading…

Weekend Recap: Find the Good

Hey guys, long time no talk! I apologize for being absent from the blog on Friday. I had a really bad end of the work week, and the last thing I wanted to do was blog, so I took time to just relax and step away from technology. All is as good as it can be, so let’s talk the weekend!

Friday was as single white girl as you get. I believe I spent it watching […] Continue Reading…

I Relapsed. 24 Day Advocare Challenge. Cat Lady

Yesterday I felt like a load of c-r-a-p! I woke up feeling extremely heavy and gross… like 30 chins. It was awful. I forced breakfast at 8:30, and then didn’t eat again until 1 pm, which is so rare! I relapsed Tuesday night and ate wayyyyy too much. I’ve been pretty hungry lately, and in the evenings I say “screw you macros,” and go over them. Well Tuesday night I ate too many crackers with […] Continue Reading…

PB Crave: Peanut Butter with a Twist Giveaway!

It’s a no brainer that I love all things peanut butter. I love peanut butter crackers, peanut butter toast, carrots dunked in peanut butter, grapes covered in pb. Throw it on a banana or apple slices, or let a spoonful of peanut butter melt on top of a bowl of oatmeal. I love peanut butter on everything.

While I much prefer peanut butter on things instead of straight up off of a spoon or my […] Continue Reading…
