Good Morning!

I love sharing my wonderful eats, and that is indeed what it was yesterday!  Make sure you also head over to Jenn’s blog and find out what she’s been snacking on lately too!

What I Ate Wednesday: Sensible Snacking

Breakfast:  I was off work yesterday so I had plenty of time to play in the kitchen.

Blueberry (Almond flour) Protein Pancakes were on the menu for Eric and I yesterday morning!  We had some running around to do so I knew we needed something to hold us for at least a few hours.

Fitness:  Arms & Back Plus A WOD that included my good ole kettlebell, box jumps, push ups, and sit ups- took me 8:50


Lunch:  Leftover Chicken Fajitas- Chicken, red and yellow peppers, sprinkle of cheese. 1/4 avocado added after snapshot 🙂

Dinner: Giant plate of spaghetti squash and turkey meatballs

First Cut Spaghetti Squash in Half.  Hint:  I make this easier by sticking the entire thing in the microwave for about 5 minutes first ! I spread a little bit of Olive Oil or Grapessed oil with s&p, and garlic onto the squash.  Place it rind up in the oven for 45 minutes at 400 degrees!

Top with meat sauce or turkey meatballs like I did!  This is really only 3 meatballs cut into pieces but looks like way more!  I am not defending that I have a huge meal here, because I do!!  So good!

And a little breakfast prep:

What could this be!?!?  This is my first time making this concoction but I cannot wait to share the recipe (As long as it tastes good!)


And to finish off my night:

Did you eat anything different or really tasty this week so far? 

Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

Tuesday Lily turned 5!!  She’s getting so big.  I wish she would get better with age, but I guess that’s just not in the cards for me.  Oh well, I still love her even though she is absolutely insane!


Yes, she is seriously crazy.  Ask anyone!

After crossfit I went to Petsmart to get her a birthday present.  I figured a huge bone would be just fine.  It was very messy so she had to chew on it outside and she stayed out there for a couple hours, my plan worked perfectly 🙂  She also got a new pink collar (shes wearing it in the first picture), so girly.


Jackson also played outside with his brother who lives next door.  They are just the cutest.


Crossfit was a rough one on Tuesday.  We had to carry dumbbells full of weight around the building twice followed by Bottom’s up Push press.  A bottom up Push Press is basically just a push press holding the kettle bell upside down, which takes more balance than normal.

We had to do 5 with each arm.  My shoulders were on FIRE by the time I was done and my back was so sore from carrying that dumb thing around so much!  I think my spine is permanently bruised.  The crossfit coach says you never know when you are going to have to carry heavy (excuse my language) shit around..  I guess that’s true and I’ll be prepared!

The prescribed weight for women was 105 and 35 but I only used 85 lbs and a 15 lb kettlebell, and thank God because I was dying.

I finished with 3 full rounds plus 15 meters of another barbell carry.

Since I decided to change up my workout routine a little bit I thought I would share what I did the rest of the week:

  • Monday- Crossfit
  • Tuesday- Crossfit
  • Wednesday- OFF
  • Thursday- OFF
  • Friday- Maybe do my own workout?
  • Saturday- Crossfit
  • Sunday- Run


I made a huge salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, a tiny bit of feta cheese,  pine nuts, a hard boiled egg, 1/2 garlic and asiago chicken sausage, 1/4 avocado, and raisins.  I also made Eric one.  He loves my salads, and to be honest they are the bomb!


I snacked on a few almonds too.

After lunch I did some running around with my momma which give me a huge craving for ice cream!  I made a stop at good ole McD’s for a vanilla cone.  Eric had an Oreo McFlurry.  2 great choices if you ask me!


Dinner came pretty early since that ice cream cone plus a few carrots were my only snacks.  I made a Laura’s lean burger with sauteed asparagus and watermelon.  Fantastic dinner.


Oh, of course ketchup for my burger.  It just wouldn’t be the same without it!

After dinner I made these amazing 3 Ingredient Healthy Macademia Nut Cookies: (that you may have seen on instagram) Recipe Adapted From Tina at CarrotsNCake.  I think I love Nikki’s Coconut butter just as much as Tina does!


I used almonds instead of walnuts and a different flavor of coconut butter:

They did turn out incredible!

Try this cookie please!  Have a good weekend everyone!

PS.  If you love cookies, check out these paleo chocolate chip cookies...I plan on trying them soon 🙂

Also- It’s National Donut Day!- Dunkin Donuts will give you a free donut if you buy coffee (or any drink I think)

What’s your favorite healthIER dessert?
