Thinking I might do the Metcon tonight at Crossfit Rx! It'll be a struggle - but if I make it - the time doesn't matter - the achievement will be great!
Less than 15 days until vacation!
Some days! But thankfully I usually skip the 11pm binge! #thestruggleisreal
Weigh in day. Gained 1.2 lbs this week. It sucks, but all I have to do is just keep pushing and learn from my mistakes! No need to get down, just a need to keep moving!

First bike ride of the year last night! 8.6 miles! Thinking I'll have to aim for 15 miles on my next big ride as I've never gone that far!
enjoyed her party this weekend!
When people ask me "Is it hard being a vegetarian," I would love to ask them - was your breakfast this delicious this morning? #deliciousdailymoment
Made it a mile yesterday dragging 50 lbs! Woo hoo - another first in the books!
My first Meal Prep Sunday! Whole 30 Cauliflower Fried Rice, PF Changs CopyCat Spicy Green Beans and Teriyaki Tofu! It was a labor of love but so worth it!
Thought it was really worth sharing what a week of true focus has done for me. The numbers don't lie - I've improved in EVERY category - including sleep! #fitbit
I posted this on Facebook today to remind those of us still pushing for our New Years Resolutions to do something today to get closer to your goal.
Then I got really excited - it's August and I'm still really focused on goals I set in January!
Twelve years ago today, my everything arrived on this planet. "Fawn boy pug #2" was born in the small town of Horse Cave Kentucky to the late Minnie and Mickey Paws. What an adventure his life would be, what a blessing on my world. Happy 12th Birthday to my "Dr Loomis!" Through every windfall and famine, heartbreak and celebration - he has been my constant - so today we celebrate!
Today I made my 50th new recipe of 2017 - meeting one of the goals I set for my New Years Resolution!
Healthy breakfast for the win! Grilled shishito peppers and tomatoes, vegetarian breakfast sausage, egg whites and feta cheese! Forget sugary donuts, frozen waffles and plain jane eggs! My breakfast is better than yours is! haha
New recipe = Fancy breakfast at my desk at work this morning! Poached eggs over steamed asparagus with a lemon vinaigrette.
Made more mini frittatas last night! This time around - mushroom goat cheese! Who would have thought I would love meal prep so much! #mealprep
Another awesome new breakfast! Brown rice, steamed broccoli, hummus and a poached egg. YUMM!!
Here Go Steelers! #sundayfunday
Easy meal prep last night - protein pasta, vegetarian meatballs, grilled vegetables and marinara sauce. Brought one to work to enjoy today for lunch!
Happy Anniversary to my loving, wonderful, sexy, fun and fabulous husband! Three years married and I wouldn't want to be on this adventure with anyone else!
Things I've done today - massaged kale, spanked a pomegranate. #superfoods
Words to live by.
Happy Birthday to the best nephew a girl could ask for! Aunty Abby loves you Silas!! A year of personality shows me your life will be 100% interesting and always amazing!
Coming back to Crossfit after a week off is always hard. Second workout back we have Isabel (ie 30 snatches as fast as possible). I decided to up my weight by 5 lbs from the last time I did this. Or so I thought. Instead I logged my workout this morning to see it was the same weight...BUT I slayed that shit! Cut my time by 3 minutes and 49 seconds since April of this year! #crossfit #likeagirl #girlsgonestrong

That moment your egg white omelette has so much kale in it that it won't close! It's not pretty but it's absolutely delicious!
Last night's tasty dinner - Kale Greek Chopped Salad! #pinterestinspired
There seems to be a theme to my omelets lately- too many vegetables!! #healthypeopleproblems
Day #1 of no snooze alarm for all of January!
Instead of the snooze button - power yoga. Day #3 of 31 with no snooze!
Fourth day no snooze button! Today's extra time went to meal prepping freezer breakfast sandwiches! Watch out McDonald's - I'm mass producing tasty sandwiches before the sun rises too!
Yoga in the A.M.
Crossfit in the P.M.
It's Two-A-Day Friday!
I've been doing Yoga a few mornings a week and this is a quote that I've always loved from Ramakrishna that has felt very fitting to me already in 2018.
It's official - bikini season is officially coming early! First trip to Mexico is scheduled for April! Great incentive to work hard and stay strong!
Ran 3 miles this morning before the sun came up! Happy to be back run training!
Working out is great, but always remember!
Yesterday was Meal-Prep-Monday! Banana Bread Muffins, Mini Quiches, and Lentil Sweet Potato Chili!
Tonight is the first night of the 2018 Crossfit Open! Goal - 10 rounds of the scaled workout in 20 minutes! I was awake at 3:45am excited, nervous, and contemplating doing Rx (35 lb dumbbells rather than 20 lb, and toes to bar rather than knee raises - but the weight is a LOT for me) rather than scaled. Still nervous and excited but ready to slay this workout! #intheopen
Guess who's finishing their first ever Crossfit Open tonight? Yay!!!! Bring on 17.5 baby! It was my goal just to compete. And after tonight - I will be a success!
I joked that my goal was just to not be the one who took dead last in our gym. Though guess what - that's better than not competing at all! As of last week's scores I'm in the top 5 of the scaled division for our gym! And #310 out of almost 1000 in my division in the state of Ohio! Couldn't be prouder!
Suns out - guns out! Me on St. Patty's Day showing off my Crossfit muscles!
Crossfit Open - Workout 17.3 like a boss baby!
Summer bodies are made in the winter! My favorite mantra these last few months!

is saddened by the world this week...by the hatred, by the divide.
My new wheels!
Tired. Was at the emergency vet last night until almost 11 with our gentle giant. Luckily it's just a back injury. Happy I listened to her when she just seemed miserable. Poor girl...

Our local farmers market opened last night! I got eggs, hummus, salsa, spicy mustard, kettle corn for DH and fresh sprouts! Love, LoVe, LOVE buying fresh local!
April Run - Matt Haverkamp Foundation 5k!
Is it really that abnormal to have a monkey and a minion on your desk? I mean they both serve a purpose. The monkey shoots foam balls ( for obvious office defense needs) and the minion is a USB drive!

Friday lunch is no longer just lunch. It's an event where I stuff tons of healthy foods in to a sweet potato! And I'm loving it!
Make the time.
Officially down 20 lbs! Where did I keep this on my body before???
Woohoo! Second 5k and it was OHHH SOO good! Official time 28:39 - that's almost 5 minutes faster than my first 5k in December!
