Weekly Menu 9/9

Hello again! This weekend was sooo quick. I was in Washington D.C. for an Arbonne even on Saturday and yesterday we took a nice walk outside, went to brunch, did the grocery shopping and meal prep and I went to my moms and binge watched “Heartland”. Have you seen it??? I love it!!

For breakfasts this week I made sausage and peppers egg bake. It is so good! I’ve been making a version of this every week. The eggs keep me satisfied for quite a bit!

Lunches are turkey and sweet potato chili, that I forgot to take pics of. It’s so good though. Just wish I added a bit more spice! I like a lil heat!

Dinners this week:

Monday: falafel, tzatziki, pita

Tuesday: Hawaiian pork tacos

Wednesday: quinoa veggie burgers

Thursday: I’m out with my girlfriends.

Friday: we’ll be at the beach for a long weekend!

What are you eating this week?

What’s Up, Wednesday? 9/4

What’s up? I’m in the middle of hell week for work and I’m exhausted!!! I’ve been starting my early mornings with exercise to keep me strong and good wholesome foods to keep my body happy. My brain is overloaded. I’m actually getting ready to meditate to hopefully calm my mind and get a restful night sleep. Hope you are having a great week!

Xoxo, L

Friday Fitness Review 8/30

Another really good week with my bff Peloton. I started power zone training this week and took the ftp test today. My quads are burning!!! With school starting next week and my life turning hectic, I’m hoping to continue my early morning workouts. No, I’m not hoping, I will. Putting that out into the universe. 💪🚴‍♀️

Besides power zone training I did some arm strength and abs. My diet was really on point this week. Now to keep it that way through the holiday weekend and hell week!

What’s Up, Wednesday 8/28

How is it Wednesday again already? I’ll tell you I just can’t keep up. It has been so busy lately. We had a great weekend with a baseball game, girls day out with my mom and having brunch with Josh.

The week before school starts always sucks, but after losing both of my helpers makes it that much worse. I’m drowning!

Even through the stress, I’ve been eating healthy and continuing with my Peloton workouts.

Looking forward to a long weekend and the last bbq of the summer with my fam.

I have a nasty headache tonight, so I’m going to go lay on the couch and watch Hallmark movies when I should be creating in my studio. I’ve really been slacking on morning glory.

So, what’s up with you?

Friday Recap

Hey y’all!  I hope you have had a fabulous week!  It’s been busy for us!  My birthday was on Monday so my family took me to a yummy dinner after work.

Joshua moved back to school yesterday.  This mama is sad.  His new dorm is so nice though!  I know he is going to have a great year! 

Work has been crazy, too.  I’ve worked out every day this week, even on my birthday, which I totally could have used as an excuse.  🙂  What better way to start my 42nd year! So, all in all, Life is great.

Tonight we’re going to a baseball game.  One of my favorite past times.

tomorrow is mom and Lori day.  We’re getting facial (her) and massage (me), then pedicures and finally a tea party at the English Tea House.  My FAVORITE!  I like to pretend I’m fancy and demure.  Of course, I’ll probably be in yoga pants instead of a pretty dress, since we’re going straight from our pampering.

Sunday we are joining some of my friends from high school at a bar on the river to watch a band.  I’m totally excited to see old friends!!

So there’s a recap of my week, since I slacked on all of my posts.  Is anyone reading these blog posts anyway?  If you are, comment below!  Let me know I’m not talking to myself!!

xoxo,

I know it’s not wednesday, but What’s up??  Work is insanely busy and I’m struggling to keep up!!  I’ll be good after tomorrow and then the craziness will start again 9/3.  Yikes!

  • We’re attending a benefit tonight for a coworkers 20 year old son who has inoperable brain cancer.  It breaks my heart!!!  Morning Glory donated a bracelet stack for the silent auction.  Everything helps, right?
  • We’re loving the Peloton!  Such a great investment, and less per month than our gym membership was!
  • Is it possible to fall more in love with your spouse daily?  Aaron is just amazing and I’m so madly in love with him.  He’s a wonderful husband and makes me happier than I ever thought I could be.
  • Our boy leaves a week from today for school.  This mama is NOT ready!!!!!
  • I miss my bestie.  We haven’t got to hang out in a couple of weeks.
  • I’m exhausted.  Work is just taking it all out of me.  I have been sneak eating the past two days.  Who does that hurt?  yeah, just me.  I need to learn how to NOT stress eat.  🙁

That’s all for now.  Have a great weekend!! xoxo
