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.

My running goals and weekly workouts

My running goals and weekly workouts

Hi there!

Hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend!

I’m up early and off for a morning jog then home to pack lunch and head out for a day with the family!  Love Sunday’s 🙂

Speaking of running, the Nike Women’s Half Marathon is just over a month away!  I’m excited and feeling good with my training.  Definitely still taking it easy and trying not to get too intense with my runs.

Here’s a few things I’m focusing on to keep my body healthy, [Read more…]

Readers Requests – A Recipe and a Workout!

Readers Requests – A Recipe and a Workout!

A few weeks back when I celebrated my 2 year blogging anniversary I asked you all what you’d like to see more of on My Healthy Happy Home.  I enjoyed reading all your responses and was happy to see it was pretty balanced between recipes, workouts, and family posts.  I love posting about all those things so I’m excited to keep doing so to make you all happy 🙂  It’s a little difficult for me to post many recipes at this time.  Hotel living doesn’t really work all that good for creating and photographing food.  Also, my computer plug/USB drive stopped working so I’m unable to transfer my DSLR photos to my computer.  I so need a new laptop!  I did however get a chance the other day to whip up a yummy recipe that was easy to prepare in the hotel and the perfect treat to satisfy the sweet tooth monster.  I’ve been indulging in way too many treats lately so needed something that I could snack on after meals without feeling guilty.

Five Facts for Friday!

Five Facts for Friday!

Happy Friday friends!

1. It’s still August.  I feel like this month is dragging on.  Maybe because we’ve pretty much been home every weekend, house hunting.  Or maybe because I’m anxious for fall to arrive.  Either way I’m ready for this ridiculously hot month of August to move on and a much cooler September to come along.  Plus I’m beyond excited about all things fall.  Pumpkins, warm apple pie scents, leaves, comfort foods, chunky sweaters with leggings and boots.  Can’t wait!

Happy Friday!

This week flew by for me since we didn’t get home from our trip until Tuesday afternoon.  I don’t mind weeks like these when the weekend is here before we know it.  However, trying to catch up with grocery shopping, laundry and cleaning can be a little annoying.  Has to be done though!

With Friday typically comes Fitness Friday for me and today I thought I’d discuss a fitness tool that you may have heard of before.

MIMM with Lemon Cream Bites

MIMM with Lemon Cream Bites

As usual, Monday has come way too fast.  Even though I don’t have to go back to work like most people, I enjoy  my weekends with my little family and can’t help but get a little sad when they are over.

However, MIMM’s with Katie at Healthy Diva Life is a great way to look back and reflect on the marvelous happenings from the weekend.

Fitness Friday + Motivation for the weekend!

Fitness Friday + Motivation for the weekend!

Happy Friday!

Yesterday was such a whirlwind of a day trying to get ready for my best friends baby shower.  I had a very long to do list and a Love Nugget who did not want to cooperate that well.  Of course because that’s just how it goes with kids right!?!  Luckily the hubby came home early to help me out by keeping The Love Nugget busy 🙂

Since yesterday was such a long and busy day and we are taking off right after gymnastics today, this will be a fairly short post.  Just not enough time to really get wanted I wanted to say out so I’ll keep it short and sweet 🙂

To begin with, here’s a look at my workouts from this past week.

Saturday – 5 mile run

Sunday – Rest

Monday – Stroller Strides + 4 mile run

Tuesday – Boot camp + 1 mile run to the gym, 1 mile sprint during boot camp, and 2 mile loop home from the gym.

Wednesday – Cycle class and this WOD,

WOD

Thursday – 45 minute elliptical plus some abs

Friday – I was browsing for something that was mostly cardio and would get me sweating then I remembered this workout I created awhile back.

I thought with it being fitness Friday and all, it would be fun to share a few health and fitness quotes to keep you going through the weekend 🙂
