Welcome to my blog where I give you a peek into how I live my healthy, happy life!


sweating with my bestie + my streak of doing adult-y things continues

sweating with my bestie + my streak of doing adult-y things continues

It was the perfect morning to just get a good sweat in on the stair climber while watching my bestie's newest video! It was kind of like having her right there sweating with me :) I have a good back and abs day ahead of me tomorrow, so I am excited and feeling nice and fresh for that after today.


After the gym, I had Chobani Non Fat Plain Greek yogurt and frozen blueberries all mixed in. It was like a delicious blueberry ice cream treat for breakfast!


Bo got to lick the empty Chobani container... can you tell?!


Then I was off to continue my streak of doing lots of adult-y things. First, I got my rings and bracelets cleaned. While I was waiting, I was looking at all of the other engagement rings and thinking about how I love them all, but there is nothing I love more than my own...


I came back home and had lunch before going to get a physical (Mike asked me if I was going to get a "mental" too, and I was like "Whaaaaat??!" for a good 90 seconds). I made a chocolatey, peanut buttery, banana mixture that was so quick, easy, filling, perfect, and portable if you're looking for something that meets all of those requirements! It was Quaker Oats, PEScience Peanut Butter Cookie protein, cashew milk, Hershey's cocoa powder, and banana slices. 


When I came home again, my Gym Gyspsy planner had arrived, and it is so beautiful! It did make me pretty excited for September! I have to say, though, I am really loving the fitlist app for inputting my workouts and then updating the weights and reps that I do complete as I actually do the workout. I like that it adds up how many reps, sets, and total weight you lifted each day, week, etc. I don't have to cross things out (I am not a fan of messy calendars/planners!), no need for a pen, I just like it- even though I feel like there is a lot on there that I don't even know about, so I need to play around with it some more. If you want to follow me on there, you can probably guess my username ;)


My new computer case came in the mail as well today (good mail day!)... can you guys tell what my favorite color is these days?!


I headed upstairs to shower before Mike got home (shower #3 of the day) and found that Bo had gotten into some trouble while I was at the doctor. I found shoes and slippers all over the bedroom and this one right on my pillow! He couldn't even look at me! I am still trying to figure out what he was so mad about...


Mike came home, gave Bo a talkin' to, and grilled up some grass fed beef tenderloin for dinner! We had roasted broccoli and cherry tomatoes on the side and it was so good. 


Now it's time to close this pretty computer and  r e l a x !

Tell me!!! When it comes to planning or tracking anything (fitness, food, lists, calendars, etc!) are you a technology lover or a paper lover?? I'm a combination of both :)
