Hi guys! I didn’t plan to go MIA but blogging just doesn’t seem to work out when we’re dealing with an extra fussy baby. Matilda may be having some acid reflux issues so I’m going to call the doctor in the morning. It’s exhausting for all parties involved!

I just looked over my meals from today and they were all rather brown/beige…not a good thing! I need a nice green juice in my life!

Breakfast was simple but actually something to get excited about…an english muffin (not the exciting part) and Oikos keylime greek yogurt (yup, there it is). So delicious. I’m sure it’s made with whole milk since it’s so creamy but I don’t really care. Winking smile I might need to make a special trip to the store just to restock.



During a too short nap I threw together a sandwich: buffalo chicken with lettuce and half an avocado.


I actually managed to get a little work done while she napped, but not nearly enough to get caught up! I have a small bookkeeping business that I run from home and the end of the year is coming quickly! I think some late nights are going to be necessary…

I made an iced coffee for an afternoon jolt, and snacked on some cantaloupe. Have you tried this instant iced coffee from Starbucks? I’ve had it sitting in my purse for months…it’s not very good.



Dinner was quick and…beige! Waffles with butter and syrup…tasty, tasty!


I’m ready to crawl into bed! Things will get better, right?? I think I need a nice, long run tomorrow…


Hi guys! I am so not ready for this blistery weather!! I kept waking up last night because I was so cold, even though I cranked up the heat. Or maybe it was a crying baby that kept waking me up…sigh. Where did my sleepy girl go?

For breakfast I made an egg wrap with two eggs, cheddar, and jalapenos.


A perfect breakfast!

I just realized that I haven’t exercised in a week! Yikes! I’m sure it’s contributing to my lack of energy and I really need to make time for it. My go-to workout is usually a run and since it’s too cold to take baby along, I’ve fallen into a rut. I’ve been wanting to try Insanity so maybe I should order it. Has anyone tried it? I really liked P90X but this seems super intense…

Mid-morning I headed to the polls to cast my vote…did you? I was in and out quickly…no lines! One advantage to a small town! On the way home I stopped to grab an iced coffee and some frozen yogurt…not the best choice on a chilly day!

Iced Americano with milk, sugar and a squirt of pumpkin syrup…


and pumpkin yogurt with fruit, granola, and coconut! I remembered to take a picture after I ate it… Smile It was really good.


The pumpkin trend continues!

And now I’m seeing that we could get snow this week! NO!!!

Has anyone tried Insanity? What did you think?

Make sure you vote!!

Reid had the day off due to the hurricane so we spent the day hanging out at home. He watched Matilda this morning and I went on a solo run! It was pretty awesome, though I do like running with the stroller too. It was a little windy but the sun was out and it actually got hot!

I put on the Glee Pandora station and three miles flew by. I didn’t wear my Garmin but it took me about 35 minutes. I wasn’t pushing it at all and walked when I felt like it. 😉 It was so relaxing, and just what I needed. My arms were still sore from the sun salutations yesterday so I skipped the weights afterwards.

When I made my lunch yesterday I cut up some extra veggies for another salad. I need to do this more often! I know it doesn’t take too much time to make a salad but it’s so convenient to have it ready to go in the fridge (I don’t really care for the salad mixes that you can buy). It makes healthy eating much more probable when it’s already prepared!


I made another crispy chicken salad with honey mustard.


And sipped an iced coffee…of course it was pumpkin.


Dinner also utilized pre-cut veggies. I bought this huge bag of chopped kale and it’s very handy! I need to add it to my next juice…you can really add it to anything! Kale is awesome! 🙂


Reid and I worked together in the kitchen and this zuppa toscana came together quickly.


This soup is my favorite but I really need to try something else…it’s the only one I ever make! We ate it with crusty bread and it was amazing.


This is really random but I ran to Rite Aid for some Halloween candy after Tilly went to sleep and picked up these tights…I got four pairs for $8.58! I love surprise deals and the colors are awesome, and they’re opaque! Reid has always said that I could shop in a convenience store and…it’s kind of true! It’s even worse now since a solo trip anywhere is a little treat and I wandered around the drug store for 30 minutes, just looking! 🙂


I’ll probably have some chocolate for dessert and then I’m going to crash. Maybe I’ve been getting too much sleep…I’ve been exhausted lately!

Any soup recipes that I should try?

What a long day! We didn’t really do much but I’m still exhausted. She may be small but she has lots of energy, and a screech that I’m sure the neighbors can hear!


I ran some errands this morning and grabbed a coffee…pumpkin with milk! I have to get my fill while it’s around…so good.


For lunch I made some brown rice (in the microwave…I don’t recommend it) and added leftover beans from dinner last night. Umm, it sounded good in my head. It wasn’t. But I still ate it.


I had some dark chocolate chips for dessert. So addicting!


I wanted to get a run in today but the afternoon got away from me and before I knew it, it was getting dark. I got some cleaning done during naptime and made a quick dinner of chicken caesar salads (with a side of bad lighting).


Matilda is finally sleeping (she has been fighting it so much lately) and we’re watching the finale of the first season of The Newsroom. Have you watched this show?? It’s the best.

Tomorrow I will get a workout in! Hold me to it! 🙂

And eat it too, right?

Good morning!! Today is my birthday so I had to start celebrating first thing. I’ve been wanting some blueberry pancakes so I decided to whip some up…if this is the only birthday ‘cake’ I get I’ll be all set! Well, I’ll take some real cake too, if I must…



I think Reid should have been making this but that’s beside the point… 😉





Sweet bliss.

I have work to do but I really don’t feel like doing any of it today. Anyone need a job as my assistant?? 🙂 I’d rather just watch TV…

Pioneer Woman, anyone? If not, I don’t blame you… 😉 I think blogging is her better platform. (Don’t mind the mount situation…Reid needs to move it down but it keeps getting put off.)


I’ve actually been kind of addicted to Shark Tank…love that show! Does anyone else watch it? I love being surprised when a product seems ridiculous and it’s actually a multi-million dollar business and the sharks all fight over a deal.

I’d love to hear from you!
