Whole30 Round 2: Week 2 Recap

Today marks the halfway point of my April Whole30! And Week 2 had some very memorable moments. For example, on Friday night we made grilled beef heart. Yep, you read that right: Beef HEART. Brandon sliced the heart in half, cut out the ventricles and rubbery arteries, sliced it up and rubbed it with some spices, and grilled it for 3 minutes on each side. Then he brought it back inside and we ate it along with some sautéed broccoli and asparagus. And it was surprisingly delicious. Rich, meaty, Read more [...]

Whole30 Round 2: Week 1 Recap

First of all, thank you all so much for all the love yesterday! I am so so excited for so many reasons. Even though I am already feeling a little wedding planning stress (I already had a conversation with my dad where he started announcing all of the people I "have to" invite...), being engaged is so fun and I can't wait to be a wife! And now, back to the issue at hand: Whole30! Today is Day 9 of Whole30 and I have to say that this has been much easier the 2nd time around. I did have a Read more [...]

Just Say No

This weekend I got to spend time up in the mountains with a group of 9 fantastic women. My best friend Dani is getting married in May and it was so fun to spend time with her, my other best friend Steph, and 7 other amazing ladies. We dressed Dani up as a tutu-wearing leprechaun, filled her up with gin, and took her to an Irish pub where we had a 3-hour long dance party from which my intercostals are still really sore. The next day we spent 2 hours soaking in a natural hot springs, then rented Read more [...]

Paleo and Zone Diet Shopping List

  Last week, someone emailed me asking me if I could give some insight into what my weekly grocery trip looks like. With the 8th week of Zone closing up, shopping for this type of eating has become second nature, but I remember how confusing it was at the beginning, so I wanted to share my answer with all of you. Side note: February has been not even close to as stellar as January was with Zone eating. I'm not so sure I will be posting before and after pics again, but I am determined Read more [...]

Tuesday Giveaway! {closed}

Everyone has their favorite WOD shirt. But let's be honest. That poor shirt has probably seen better days, judging by the way it still smells a little like sweat and old Progenex even if you just washed it, and the way your favorite WOD partner won't spot you on your overhead squat anymore without holding their breath. Well lucky you! Today I have an amazing giveaway from LatitudeGearRx to breathe new life into your CrossFit wardrobe. New, clever, well-fitting, and fresh-smelling life. I Read more [...]
