Random Weekend Awesomeness


The Husband had a much needed heart-to-heart after the kids went to bed. You know those moments in a marriage when you can hold it in or let it out? Well, we let it out and I’m glad we did.


I spent the morning at the gym judging for the CrossFit open. This guy came with me and had a blast…

I also snuck in my attempt at the workout and completed what I could as prescribed, which included 25 toes-to-bars and 50 double unders — two things I once couldn’t do.

When I got home I finally organized the pantry, something that’s been looooong overdue.


Saturday night The Husband and I got a sitter, went out for Sushi and saw “Creed” at the cheapo theater. We had a blast!

My day started bright and early when The 4-Year-Old threw up in my bed. That wasn’t awesome but cuddling on the couch with him afterwards and watching a movie was.

I finally peeled my butt off the couch and started my Sunday cook-fest.


I make a ton of hard boiled eggs for the week — the kids and I eat them with breakfast and The Husband likes to make egg salad — bacon and eggs for today’s breakfast and a pot of my new chili idea for lunches throughout the week.


I also made a quick avocado quesadilla that I will be sharing on the California Avocado Commission site this month.


It came out delicious! And I now have my two recipe ideas done for them. I just need to write the posts.

Mid-day this guy feel asleep watching cartoons. He really didn’t feel well.


While he was sleeping the Husband and I cleaned out our bathroom cupboards and did a few more chores with The 10-Year-Old. Then we all took a short nap. Well, The Husband and I did. The 10-Year-Old played, yup you guessed it, Minecraft.

When I got up I lounged around for bit, threw dinner in the oven and finally got my butt out the door for a run.

I ran to a local trail spot and got to see a bunch of deer.

It was a great run and I’m already getting more comfortable about my half in May.

When I got home I pulled this out of the oven.


Don’t let my few food photos fool you. What I didn’t share was the leftover pizza I ate for lunch and the handful of chocolate chips I enjoyed after dinner because I just wanted something sweet.

So much for my Whole30-esque run. I’m just not in the right state of mind currently.

But it’s all good. I’ve been feeling pretty fabulous lately and I’m killing it at the gym. I think I hit like 3 PRs last week and I almost completed 3 dead hang pull ups in a row! I’m going to try again tomorrow. If I can do it you you bet I’ll be posting a video!

That’s it for me tonight. Sorry I’ve been MIA. It’s been crazy in these parts lately.

Self-talk is a pretty big deal. We all have internal monologues that consistently play in our head, guiding us through our day. If we are lucky, those monologues tell us to go out and do awesome things, be immensely kind to each other, and go on and on about our own unique beauty. Unfortunately, however, […]
