What I eat when I am not working

IMG_8347.jpg

A few weeks ago, I shared a day in the life post of what I do while I am working. It includes pretty set meals, and I make sure to eat them. However, there are days, like yesterday, that I am home and it actually becomes harder to eat. Here’s a look at yesterday! 7:30: Rolled out of bed and decided that it wasn’t raining so I should go for my run. Had a Clif Shot Blok on my way {Read More}

Hi everyone! Since I missed my usual Sunday training recap due to fixing up my blog, I wanted to share it today. Sunday: 3 mile run. Easy run on the treadmill at a slower pace just shaking out my legs. Monday: Bodysculpt. I focused on the full body again by breaking it up into different body parts and working them all out. Tuesday: 6 mile run. Oh man, this one was rough. Fall weather disappeared and it was 82 degrees {Read More}

And just like that, another weekend is over. Ours ended up being quite busy, but I’ll spare you all the details. Instead, I’ll give you the picture highlights! Pictures from the weekend:     New hair cut! About 3.5 inches off. Feels great! All shopping done. Oreos, cat snuggles, couch, and Modern Family. Missing picture but Saturday we went to a fall party at a coworker of Aaron’s house. Tons of fun, no pictures. We then had game night with {Read More}

Sometimes, it’s hard

Sometimes, life is hard, and that’s okay. It can look like it’s a piece of cake through the computer screen, but you don’t know the whole story. Life throws things at you all the time. Some days dishes don’t get done. Some days, blog posts aren’t done until that night. Many days, the laundry stays piled up. Food gets forgotten at the grocery store. Lunches are thrown together. Weekends are packed. The house isn’t cleaned every single day. We come {Read More}

Fall-Bucket-List-Updated.jpg

In an effort to slow autumn down (if that’s even possible), I made a bucket list to really take in and enjoy the season. I never used to say fall was one of my favorite seasons, but over the past few years, it has definitely gotten up there. Let’s ignore our 81 degree weather yesterday.. so not fall like! A few weeks ago I created a fall bucket list so I could enjoy the season and all it has to {Read More}

Grams-Party-39_thumb.jpg

There are weekends that go too fast, ones that seem longer than others, ones that are packed, and ones that are relaxing. This weekend was the perfect mix of all of those. Last Monday, my grandma celebrated her 80th birthday, and our family got together on Saturday to celebrate. Every family member made it, and she was thrilled to have her family surrounding her. We were all grateful for everything she has done for our family, and couldn’t imagine life {Read More}
