Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for fun this weekend — we’re balancing all the work we have to do with my three favorite things. Brunch I love breakfast foods! Hubby loves sleeping in on the weekend!   What better way to merge these to loves than with a Saturday morning brunch!  We’ve decided to go to one of our favorite brunch stops in the next town over — where their specialty is all things crepes. They have sweet crepes and savory crepes and the…

Tuesday’s Treats!

Tuesday’s Treats!

It’s 47 degrees here this morning!  That’s a treat in and of itself! To take advantage of it, I’m planning a few fun things for the day! Get moving Originally, I planned to run a few miles — but my Garmin died and needs to charge up first.  Looks like that’ll have to wait until later… maybe it’ll charge super fast and I can still go a bit later this morning (or later this week?) Last night’s Crossfit workout was…

Tuesday’s Treats — 10/10/17

Tuesday’s Treats — 10/10/17

Time with friends This week’s most favorite-est treat is going shopping with my friend!  We have to pick out gifts for a few of our mutual friends, so we’re taking an afternoon and making it happen.  I’m always so grateful for time with friends — as I feel that it helps me take off my Negative Nelly hat for a while.   It’s been really crummy here lately — as far as the weather goes — and something about life…

Tuesday’s treats — 10/3/17

How is it already October? Does anyone else feel ambushed by Fall? I just know that as soon as I start writing “10” for the month, I’ll look up and Christmas will be here.  Going to VOW to make the most of my October and this whole Fall season before it’s too late!  As much as I love winter and all the family fun that holidays bring, I just don’t want to rush it. This week’s treats are geared totally…

Tuesday’s Treats!

There’s no shortage of food related treats around my house this week: Zesty Ranch Cream Cheese dip Pumpkin muffins leftover donuts and even a few of those 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole packs floating around.   That means I’m going to need to really focus on my non-food related treats this week, otherwise it’ll be hard to balance my macros!     Knitting Cooler weather always makes me want to dig into a yarn craft.  I can knit and crochet with…

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Tuesday’s treats! 9/19/17

Pumpkins, Pumpkins– everywhere! This week’s treats are somewhat pumpkin themed, but not intentionally.  I’m trying to embrace fall even though the temperature outside says it’s still very much summer.  Can’t let 90 degree weather stop me from enjoying all things pumpkin spice! First treat is for my house — a new tablecloth. It’s a small investment (this was a $3 Walmart special!), but it certainly does the job of bringing the “fall feel” into my kitchen.   Pumpkin Muffins! Once…

This Week’s Treats Nails! Gave myself a mani/pedi this weekend for my weekly treat.  Was originally going to go with a friend — but she rescheduled and my hands needed some love!  This photo shows how they look today, after a few days of wear — and I think they’re holding up nicely!   Palm Care! Self Care reminder:  When you rip up your hands on the pull-up bar, let ’em heal!  I don’t have a before pic, but this…

Treats from Labor Day Weekend!

Treats from Labor Day Weekend!

This week, we took advantage of the long weekend we’d have for housework — and used Saturday as a full on Mega-Treat Day! We each picked things we wanted to do or eat and planned from there. Hubby’s choice – Workout of the Day Hubby wanted to do a major workout first thing, so we started our Saturday at the gym.  He chose the workout called Fight Gone Bad — and it kicked our butts “Fight Gone Bad!“ Three rounds…

Thursday Things: Gloomy day = Forever selepy

Thursday Things: Gloomy day = Forever selepy

Fall Weather This week has given us in NC a break from the horrible heat (100+ on the heat index with full humidity).  It actually feels appropriate that school is starting since the mornings are cooler!  It’s almost-maybe-fall-kinda….   Something about the nice weather had me itching for a run Monday — so I did it!  Then Tuesday I crushed a cardio workout at the Crossfit gym (tabata after tabata!)   Mid Week Fun with Friends = ALL THE Treats!…

Taco Tuesday is alive and well!!

Taco Tuesday is alive and well!!

Taco Tuesday! …is just an excuse for me to eat more Mexican food.  As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I LOVE Mexican food — especially tacos and guacamole.  SO GOOD!   As I write this, I have some chicken breasts and a can of red enchilada sauce cooking away in the crock pot.  Once the chicken is cooked, I’ll shred the meat and use it as the taco meat – instead of the usual ground turkey or ground beef.  …
