Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 9

Happy first day of Fall! Everything seems a bit out of whack because it’s been over 80 degrees most of the week but indeed the leaves are changing colors so we know sweaters, boots and snow are just around the corner. In truth, I love this time of year through the holiday season. It all…

Currently {9/21/17}

Hey, all. Just popping in with a little update on what’s going on lately, “currently” style… Sipping: Very hot half-caf Heinen’s coffee. It pairs perfectly with my cold, creamy overnight oats. Mmmmmmm. Listening (to): The sweet sound of silence. Mike is already at work, Vera is still sleeping soundly. I love mornings like this when…

Vera at 15 months

Vera turned 15 months last week! In truth, I’ve sometimes (ahem, mostly) lost track of how old she is in months but 15 months = a Well Visit at the doctor’s office so that’s how I know for sure. Anyway, here’s an update of our little toddler at 15 months! Height + weight: Our little…

Weekend highlights: back to normal

Hellooooo! After two long weekends in a row, this weekend went by in a flash. It was a good one, but definitely a dose of reality. I also failed at taking pictures, so I’ll try to keep things short and sweet…. Friday;  I picked Vera up early and had plans to take her right to…

Last week’s workouts

I don’t really have my act together this morning – a combo of a clogged ear and staying up too late reading (oops) – so I am just here to share last week’s workouts. Hopefully I come up with a meal plan tonight, haha! Photo by Davies Designs on Unsplash Last week’s workouts:  Friday: HIIT…

Hocking Hills Vacation 2017, Part 1

Hi! Happy Wednesday – I, for one, am happily starting my short work week today after a long weekend in Hocking Hills with Mike, Vera and my parents. Can’t beat two three-day work weeks in a row 🙂 Here’s part 1 of our vacation highlights: Friday:  Relaxing morning. We had everything packed up pretty early…

Making “Healthy” Part of our Family’s Lifestyle

I’m excited to be a Cleveland Heart Walk ambassador. Join me at the Heart Walk (for more than just walking!) on Saturday, September 23. Full event schedule below. I was not compensated for this post and the views here are my own but I am partnering with the Cleveland American Heart Association to promote the…

Favorite yoga poses for recovery

While I love high-intensity workouts, the kind of yoga I prefer is actually the slow, gentle, restorative kind. I have taken (and enjoyed) 60-minute hot yoga sessions where I do get in a decent workout (and sweat a lot), but it’s not my go-to workout of choice. When I’m drawn to yoga, it’s usually because…
