Labor Day Weekend Recap & Day 1 of my Paleo Food Challenge


Isn’t it awesome that today is Tuesday??!! That is the beauty of 3-day weekends.

Going into the weekend I decided instead of taking pictures of everything we did and all the different foods we made and ate, I would just sit back and enjoy the last weekend of summer. So the pictures I do have were taken from other people!


My weekend was great! Although the weather was iffy all weekend the rain held out for us. We BBQ’d every day with family and friends, and I loved that I didn’t have to cook!


Ava had her own food at my parent’s BBQ. She’s naked because it’s easier for me to clean up!! She is a messy eater and gets food EVERYWHERE!

Yesterday morning I taught Group Power. I was looking forward to my morning workout before heading to a Family BBQ at the beach but to be honest it was the longest hour EVER.

Usually Group Power is fun and I love how I feel after, but the air conditioner wasn’t working so it was brutal!  The sweat was literally dripping off my body and it literally looked like I just came out of a pool when we finished. I drank 3 large water bottles during the hour long class and it wasn’t enough. It was almost like we did the workout in a sauna, I was not a fan. I left feeling drained!

When I got home, I hydrated some more and then attacked the fridge. My appetite was crazy! After I re-fueled and showered I felt SO much better.

We headed to Todd’s Point around 12 for our last BBQ of the weekend.


I’m not gonna lie the weather was GROSS. Don’t you just hate being hot and sticky?? Thank goodness for the Long Island Sound.


Being in the water was hands down the highlight of my day, and if Ava could swim we probably would have stayed in longer.

She was literally crawling around getting hit by little waves and had no fear of the water. She’s just like me and it was a lot of fun to watch her!

Today was the first day of my PALEO Food Challenge! I enjoyed my coffee black this morning.


I will post some of my “eats” tomorrow!

Are you joining me on the 2 week PALEO Food Challenge?
