Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I share what I eat, how I train, and how I live a happy, healthy life!

 

just focus on the day it is

Hi guys!! Yesterday morning, I started my new program and I can tell it's a tough one already. I'm ready for the challenge, though, and to grow mentally and physically. It's full of all sorts of squats, snatch grip deadlifts of different variations, and who knows what else! I try not to look too closely at the days and weeks ahead and just focus on the day it is. This morning was certainly a mental test as I had 72 reps of bench from the pins and had to lay stuck under the bar 2" from my chest for 2/3 of my training. See my Instagram for more on that ;)

Some days Bo is extra sleepy and snuggly and yesterday, he was having one of those days. His fur is even different when he is in this mood- it's like more fluffy and frizzy!! His snuggly moods are fine by me, and then as soon as a dog walks by, a switch in him flips and he is wide awake and almost goes right through the window...

Breakfast was just delicious yesterday- the perfect mix of hot and cold, sweet and savory.

Here's some more food from the day that I photo-ed before my camera battery died!

iPhone pics can't even compare now that I use my DSLR on the regular now. Yesterday, my class had "Neon Day", which was easy for me. We also celebrated Bubble Day and had lots of fun making bubble wands and blowing bubbles outside before the storms came. After that fun, we loaded ourselves up with as many glow sticks we could, made it super dark, watched Moana, then had a KidzBop dance party. It was probably the best day of the year so far :)

Mike was brave enough to grill us our beef tenderloin in the downpours and lightning!!!

Today was "Rainbow Day" for my class, and we played Minute to Win It games. It was seriously hilarious and super fun, but so tiring for me! #worthit

After school I was craving cold, crispy veggies, so I made a salad and a side plate of tomatoes and carrots. A few hours later, we had baked BBQ rubbed chicken and sautéed summer squash.

Now I am watching my favorite movie of all time ever- The Lucky One- and Mike's at the grocery store. He's basically the mayor, so a trip to the grocery store takes him forever because he sees and chats with all kinds of people! Have a great rest of your night!!

happy summer
