It’s that time of year again… packing kids lunches (or our own) and trying not to repeat the same old recipes. Even with the best intentions, I tend to get in a rut for L… I like sending her the things I know she’ll eat (anything nut butter related) but I also want her to [...]

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.
While L had her [...]

After being cooked for and eating out the last two weeks, I found a renewed energy for cooking again, and came home with a long list of recipes I wanted to make this week.
I’m linking up with Jenn again at Peas and Crayons. Check out what everyone else is eating, too!
I’m also [...]

It’s my second month participating in the Foodie Penpals program, and it’s time to reveal the goodies!
I was lucky to be linked up with Laurie at Love, Laugh, Laurie and she found all sorts of goodies from Milwaukee, Wisconsin! So let’s peek in the box…
Laurie picked out so many [...]

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 a rainy week here. The good news is that Texas is relatively cool. The bad news is that thunderstorms are supposed to continue through the weekend, and I am terrified about cycling in the rain at the triathlon. Let’s hope it stops by then!
This week’s What I ate Wednesday is more like what [...]

It’s time for another round of What I ate Wednesday! This month, we’re tying in fitness, something I usually do anyway, so I’m excited. Let’s get started!
Biking: This month holds a new fitness challenge for me… my first triathlon! Eleven days to go. I feel so lucky that my local blogging [...]

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!), [...]

Did you know it’s National Running day today? Get out for a run if you can!
I’m over one week in, and the running streak is going well. It’s pushing my 30 mile weeks to 33, which is a reasonable 10% increase, and my legs have been handling it so far. I also mentioned [...]
