Friday Loves #30

Hey there! Happy Friday!! We are kicking off a week long break from work and it is already fantastic!  Follow along on Instagram for all the play-by-play Christmas action!

Things I love this week:

1. Fitnessista shares her fitness gamechangers–super-inspiring and proof that mixing it up pays off! P.S. I just pre-ordered her new book, HIIT It (<<Amazon Affiliate link) and you should too!


2. Crock Pot Ranchero Chicken–this looks delicious and like a good twist on our classic taco Sunday (sometimes the same exact thing gets old to me–not to Nate though, he’d eat tacos everyday!)

3.  15 Minute Abs and Arms Circuit–I basically need to do this right now. Right. Now. (Why is it so much easier to talk about working out than actually working out?)

4.  Clean Eating Baked Citrus Chicken–this looks fantastic and like a perfect busy day dinner! I love that you can make it all up ahead of time, leave it in the fridge to marinate and then pop it in the oven at dinner time!

5. In case you missed it yesterday I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Live On, Give On invitation and have you enter to win a $100 Visa Gift Card!  Seriously, you must partake. I mean, free money to keep or give away…it doesn’t get better than that! :D Unless it’s a baby with a puppy.



Have a great weekend!

What are you loving this week? Do you have any Christmas plans or fun traditions over the weekend? 

Live On. Give On.

Layla at 10 Months

It greatly pains me to write a baby update 2 whole days early…I like to hold on to each month until the last possible moment…Layla is still 9 months, until the 19th hits, but in order to keep with my recent Wednesday is family/baby day, I have decided that two days doesn’t really make a difference….(but in my heart this […] more

Overly Critical to Overly Forgiving: Finding Balance

Today I’ve been thinking about balance in healthy living. I think, like many people,  my pendelum swings rapidly between being overly critical and overly forgiving. Some days I’m all: “Ew, you’re gross you need to work harder! NO excuses! Get after it or else! Are you really, really going to eat that? Don’t you know better?” And some days I’m […] more
