Happy Friday everyone! It feels like forever since I have put out a new post. I wanted to share a recap of last weekends activities and the yummy goodies I made.

It's… Continue reading Weekend Recap: Running, Pie, & Roasted Ranch Chickpeas
Ok, I know it's July, but I'm already itching for my favorite season to arrive. Since I'll probably have to wait 3 more months for cooler temps to arrive, I decided to bust out some pumpkin goodies that are both yummy, but also really healthy. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber and vitamins.… Continue reading Gluten Free Pumpkin Protein Doughnuts & Muffins!
I was busy this weekend cooking for the BBQ on Monday, but also for the week ahead. I'm a big fan of Rachel Ray Everyday and Eating Well magazines.

After picking up some veggies from the store, I settled on making… Continue reading Yummy Eats: Mini Frittatas & Low-cal GF Cupcakes
I love a short work week! It's the added bonus to having a holiday on Monday. For Independence Day, I headed to my parents with Nick and Peanut to celebrate.

Happy Monday! Who is ready for a strong week ahead?!? I know I am going to try my hardest to make this my most successful week yet. I've printed off my workout schedule for the week, meal prepped and chopped veggies, and planned my meals for every.single.day. Taking the guesswork out of meals has really… Continue reading Bikini Series Week Three Recap
It's Monday People! That means we get a fresh start for the week ahead. I know I could use one after eating too much pizza and too little veggies this weekend.
