Last week, I decided to challenge myself for the week and skip the chocolate chips at the grocery store. I’m happy to say I haven’t missed them too much.
It did lead to some other dessert experimenting, but some healthier alternatives.
Chocolate “ice cream”
and (non-chocolate) sweet potato date bars, inspired by [...]

Yesterday was busy- it started with a 6:30 am spin class I was subbing, which is about the time I usually workout, but required a much earlier wake up. As much as I grumbled when my alarm went off, I loved getting that burst of energy first thing in the morning.

I’m also [...]

Before I get to the good stuff, thank you all so much for your supportive words on my first attempt at the sprint triathlon! It was an amazing experience. Like my first marathon, I had moments (mostly in the swim) where I thought I don’t ever need to do that again. But now I’m thinking [...]

It’s Friday again! I have lots of little updates today- some good, some not-so-good, and then we’ll wrap up with an amazing banana bread.
Running blogs are buzzing with talk of the Mezamashii Project, and there have been numerous opportunities to win a pair of Mizunos. Guess who totally lucked out and won [...]

We’re only a few days into summer officially, but Texas hit summer temperatures months ago. One of our favorite ways to keep cool is with homemade popsicles, and we’ve been experimenting with some of our favorite flavors.
These are a much healthier alternative to store-bought varieties (you can even sneak spinach into the blueberry one!), [...]
