Pulling from the Archives – If They Ate It, Why Can’t I?

I stared at the blank page for quite sometime last night with nothing sparking in my mind.  So rather than bore you all with my nothiness for today, I figured I’d share one of my most popular posts from the archives.

If They Ate it, Why Can’t I?

I think comparison is something that is almost ingrained in women.  At some point or another I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of comparing our clothes, house, life, etc. to someone else.  We may all try not to but it happens and actually, I’m sure men do it to just not as often.

Since becoming hooked on the blog world I’ve definitely fallen into the food comparison trap from time to time.  It’s an easy thing to do when you read so many blogs that share amazing photos of delicious looking meals and recipes.

Things I’m Loving Lately – Natural Products + a Recipe!

Things I’m Loving Lately – Natural Products + a Recipe!

Hi guys!

It’s Thursday.  Already….  This week flew by!  After living a few weeks in a blur it’s no wonder this one flew by.  Trying to catch up on house work, blogging, work, appointments etc. has kept us busy!

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared some things I’m loving lately so I figured today would be a good day to do so.  I love learning about new products when other bloggers do these types of posts so hopefully you all enjoy it when I do them as well!

Eco Nuts – 

Okay so I have to admit I had no idea these were actual nuts until after I purchased them from Costco.  At $5.00 for the whole box!  When I got them home and opened them up I remembered seeing them on Shark Tank a few months prior.  Nuts that clean your clothes!  What!?!  Being a sucker for natural products I gave them a try and guess what… They work!  I was expecting our sweaty gym clothes to stink without soap but nope.  They smelled fresh and clean!  As does the rest of our laundry after using them.  All you do is stick 4-5 into the provided cloth bag and place them into the washer with your clothes.  The only downside is trying to find the bag in your wet clothes before transferring to the dryer but if they dry it’s no big deal.  The nuts are reusable too and last for up to 10 washes.  I haven’t had to buy laundry soap in over a month and still have so many left.  Love them!

A Day in the Life on a Tuesday

A Day in the Life on a Tuesday

Good morning!

I think yesterday was the first day in over a week that I actually felt back to normal.  Between my aunts passing and the stomach flu that knocked me down I’ve not been myself.  While I’m obviously still recovering from losing my aunt, I can say that I finally feel I’ve kicked the last of the flu bugs out of my system!   Yay!

I had set an alarm to remind myself to start documenting my day for a full day in the life post but of course, it didn’t go off.  Luckily I remembered after returning home from the gym :-)  So here’s a peak into our Tuesday this week!

5:00 am – alarm goes off for the gym.  I get up, drink a little of my AMRAP beet energizer and head out the door.

Smooth Traveling with a 3 year old

Smooth Traveling with a 3 year old

You guys I don’t know if I told you how good our traveling experience was with The Love Nugget.  Of course we knew it was going to be easier than traveling with a much younger child but had heard horror stories about traveling with kids.  Tantrums on the plane, screaming in the airport, accidents in public, we had heard it all and were having nightmares about all the horrible things that could happen.  Luckily, none of those things did and actually The Love Nugget was so great we received numerous compliments on how well-behaved he was.  Someone even said, “Wow, you guys must fly all the time!”  Nope, first time :-)

Was it pure luck?  Nope.  I made sure to be overly prepared in order to ensure our trip went smoothly.

Weekend Happenings

Weekend Happenings

Good morning friends!

Last week was a bit rough with all of us going through the flu and trying to prep for my aunts celebration of life.  Which was held this past weekend and turned out very nice.  We could all feel her presence in the room as we shared pleasant memories of her with family and friends.

Travel WOD’s and a Family WOD

Travel WOD’s and a Family WOD

I know some people are against working out when they go on vacation.  I am not one of those people.  I’m a morning person and typically awake before the rest of my traveling companions so if I like to do something productive while everyone still sleeps.  Productive and enjoyable for me. Exercise!

I love getting to explore new gyms, fitness centers or towns on foot while getting in some good fitness time.

As you know we recently took a little vacation to Hawaii and the fitness room was one of the first things I checked out upon arriving.

WIAW – Stomach Flu Edition

WIAW – Stomach Flu Edition

You guys,  the stomach flu sucks!    Yesterday I literally woke up feeling like I had been hit by a bus.  Ugh…  Luckily it’s been a short stomach flu and I’m on the mend but it’s been a rough few days with all of us going through it.  Since I wasn’t feeling all too hot yesterday I wasn’t able to eat much.  However, I still thought I’d link up with Jenn for What I Ate Wednesday and share my day of eats recovering from the stomach flu.

Life Lately

Hi friends!

I feel like this past year I’ve just been a bundle of bad news.  It would be easy to keep it all off the blog but I do try to be real and show my life how it is.  Sure there are some things I keep private but by being honest and open I feel that I’m able to connect a little better with you all.  Which let’s be honest, when connecting through the internet can be pretty difficult.

So I figured I’d give you all a little peak at our life lately, negative stuff and all… [Read more…]

Good morning friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  I wish I could say mine was filled with fun and excitement but it was a bit more mellow than we had originally planned since The Love Nugget was sick :-(
