I promise that my blog won’t become overloaded with Crossfit posts now that I’m loving it.

I still enjoy other forms of exercise and won’t bore those of you who aren’t into Crossfit with constant posts about the sport. [Read more…]

Empower Workout

Empower Workout

You may remember awhile back I wrote about a kettlebell I was using from a company called Empower Fitness.  Well,  a few months ago I was sent a few pieces of exercise equipment to test out.  I love adding new things to our little home gym so I was excited with the chance to try something new 🙂

Being an Athlete on a Paleo Diet

One question I get asked a lot about my eating habits is, “How do you survive without carbohydrates for how frequently you exercise?”  It’s a good question and one that I should have addressed months ago but in all honesty it’s taken me awhile to figure out what works best for my body.

Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge!

Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge!

Who likes a good challenge!?!  Me!!!!  I think it’s my competitive nature that’s always looking for a good one.  Whether it be individual (beating my last PR at the gym) or competitive (beating The Hubby at cards, which I always do:-).  Either way, I’m always down for a little excitement through a challenge.  So when the opportunity arose for me to be a part of the Move Nourish Believe Challenge I leaped on board!

Good morning and Happy Friday!!!
Anyone else doing the happy dance?

What I ate Wednesday through my iPhone

What I ate Wednesday through my iPhone

I’m still alive and I’m not completely buried under boxes anymore.  I’m definitely not 100% unpacked yet but we’re getting there.

One thing that’s still in boxes is my DSLR camera.  Luckily I’ve always got my handy-dandy iPhone to snap photos when I need them.  I just so happened to remember to take a bunch of food pictures yesterday to join in the What I Ate Wednesday party today!

Peas and Crayons

Thank you as always to the lovely Jenn for hosting this shin-dig 🙂

Start Thanksgiving Day off right

Start Thanksgiving Day off right

Turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans, roasted butternut squash, pumpkin and apple pie.  Oh my! Who doesn’t love the food that comes along with this special holiday?  I know I do!

I’m all for indulging and enjoying the holiday to it’s fullest.   However, I also know how stuffed and uncomfortable I feel afterwards when I over do it. So to avoid this I’ll be taking a few steps to ensure I don’t over do it on all the delicious food being served.  After all, we typically have at least two full  Thanksgiving dinners.  This year we may have three!

Bye, Bye Cardio Junkie!

Bye, Bye Cardio Junkie!

I used to be a cardio junkie.  I would head straight to the gym after work, hop on the treadmill to run 4-6 miles, then go into a Group X class where I would jump around trying to work up even more of a sweat.  I was under the impression that I needed to sweat more to burn more and in order to sweat I had to do cardio.

Luckily for me I’ve since learned that cardio isn’t actually as crucial in health and fitness as we once thought it was.  Most of you know I experienced some women related issues recently that forced me to cut back on my exercise.  In the process of doing so, I began paying more attention to what many people are saying about the long term effects of excess cardio on the body.

MIMM – I want wine!

MIMM – I want wine!

Woohoo!  It’s Monday!  You’re probably thinking, why in the world are you excited for Monday?!?  Tomorrow is the last day of my Whole30!  As much as I’ve enjoyed it, I’m really looking forward to enjoying a glass of wine.  Saturday night the hubby cracked open one of my favorites and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted to take a sip or pour myself a glass.  Earlier in the month I wasn’t craving it as much but this weekend I was missing it so I’m definitely ready to enjoy a delicious glass of Zin come Wednesday 🙂

Other than missing my wine this weekend, we had a pretty marvelous one!  October is quickly becoming my favorite fall month with the Love Nugget as there has been so many fun festivals and local events happening that we’ve been enjoying.

Friday we started off our weekend with a fun Harvest Festival put on by a friends church.

Fitness Friday is back!

Good morning and happy Friday to you all!

I took a break from Fitness Friday to try and steer my focus off of fitness while I tried to cut back on my exercising for health reasons.  If you missed it you can read more about why here but basically, Aunt Flow hasn’t been to visit in several months and I’m assuming, over exercising is the reason.  I know some of you are probably thinking, “Why do you want her back?”  Well, I don’t think it’s natural and normal to just stop having a cycle altogether.  So I’m working on little things I might be able to do to help bring her back.
