Good Morning!

I took a little holiday break to myself 🙂  But I am back and ready to share my holiday weekend with you guys!  I didn’t really have time to do any fancy cooking or anything this holiday but I did eat a lot of food and got to hang out with some awesome friends!

First on the agenda:  On the 4th we had lunch with our good friends Nick and Lindsey who brought their baby Kinley, she is so cute!  She had her 4th of July outfit on and was ready to roll!

It rained the whole day and the park by our house even flooded, so we didn’t get to spend the day at the pool like we had hoped!


Later in the evening we went to another friends house and ate lots of food and had our own fireworks show!

Some of the guys were drinking Corona and Eric made sure that he was drinking Bud Lite, “An American Beer”

Eric also loved their dog!  He’s awesome.

I had 3 of these cookies, they were sooooo good!  I won’t tell you that I may or may not have had a belly ache that night!

Drinking and fireworks are not a good combination!  But we had such a blast even though it started to rain again later that night, and I got hit in the eyebrow with some flying debris!

thinking hard



I went to crossfit after work and did the scheduled WOD which was pretty brutal.  Combining burpees, snatches, box jumps, thrusters, and chest to bar pull ups was pretty tiring.  I am always nervous when I see such a hard workout but then I am always happy after I complete it!

After crossfit I went to the store and stocked up on my protein powder.  I got two pounds plus tons of free samples.  I think I am set fora  while.


I had a protein shake after the workout so I wasn’t too hungry for lunch but I did end up making a pretty tasty snack plate!

The new tomato basil brown rice triscuits are my new favorite cracker!

I was going to go to open gym and work on snatches but we went to first watch for brunch so I didn’t have time.  I didn’t want to take the day off so I went to the gym and did some EASY cardo/core work.  I didn’t really push myself like I wanted to but at least I got a good sweat in.

Sunday night I Made Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Nikki’s Coconut Butter melted on top 🙂
