Bruises and a Birthday WOD celebration!
WoooooHoooooo it is Friday and a long holiday weekend! I am so excited that it is the weekend and that we have Monday off. Total feeling of bliss! I started this morning off with a wonderful Crossfit class with my lil crossfit family and it was awesome! Our teacher never showed up to class though……which was kind of a bummer, but at the same time it was great and motivational because...
Trader Joes to the Rescue!
O Trader Joe’s how I missed you and your good deals and extremely long line ! How do I start this one? Today while at work I was reading Paleo Plan’s blog and listening to Balanced Bits podcasts (still working :) aka multitasking at its finest) when it hit me……. I really need to spend more time on Sunday afternoons preparing my weekly lunches. So I found an example...
Waiting on the bus and omg it is so muggy it’s insane! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Had to get that off my mind! :) Anywho woke up this morning bright and early to go running and I knew it was going to start raining. I could feel the air saturated with water, huge rain droplets just ready to fall. I made those raindrops my clock: get a fast run in and at least be heading back home when it started to...
Did I Tell You?
Did I tell you that I finally did a Double Under last week at crossfit? Well I did and I am still plum happy excited about it. When I first started crossfit I couldn’t do a DU for the life of me and I still can’t really, but I did get one! Another move I have improved on is burpees with a tuck jump. We did them this morning during our WOD and I actually “tucked” my jumps!...
Recap: Dean & Deluca Sunday Lunch!
Ok, I’ve got to get straight to the point(s) - Dean & Deluca where have you been all my life? Always knew we would find each other one day :) I have been in D&D before, but never really explored and it reminds me so much of Eatzis that used to be in Atlanta. - Lunch was delicious and totally hit the spot. I got a Greek salad which comes already made with lettuce, purple olives,...

Paleo Bread Review!
So while searching for new Paleo recipes to try, I came across this Coconut Flour Paleo Bread from the blog Chocolate & Carrots and knew I had to try it asap! The recipe looked super easy and contained only 6 ingredients…how much easier could it be!? The recipe calls for coconut oil of course and I have been eyeing it for a while now at the stores, but hadn’t bought any yet...
Workouts So Far this Week!

On Saturday night, after an early evening run consisting of all hills, I fixed us the most delicious lasagna sans noodles and we didn’t miss the noodles one bit! Here is how I came to making this delicious and healthy meal: I was on Foodgawker Friday and searched paleo and what do ya know? Paleo recipes out the waz! I spotted this little gem from Eat Drink Paleo; “Show Off Paleo...
