Things I’m loving lately


Happy Fridayyyy.

The rain is making me not want to leave the house today, but I’m not going to complain because we had a beautiful summer and we need a little rain right? I guess it’s supposed to rain all weekend but rainy days are usually the days that I’m most productive with at home. It’s good weather to pay bills, catch up on laundry, organization and unwanted cleaning duties. In the end I think I usually feel good about the productivity though.

I’m going to share some THINGS I’M LOVING THIS WEEK:

First up is that it’s October. There’s just something about October that I love… pumpkins, pumpkin spice, apples, more apples, leaves on the ground, pumpkin beer… oops!


This past week we sampled Hello Fresh, you can check out my post from yesterday and I can honestly say it was a great change of pace for me with food. I was looking to mix things up and I was able to learn a few new food tricks in the process. It was a great experience!


Cooking Meals with Ava. I try to cook dinner at home every week night and while some days its a challenge, other days Ava makes it easy and has some fun with me.

This week she helped me mash the butternut squash and apple puree I made as a side dish. It’s the simple things that make her smile and using a masher is quite fun I guess. I think we have a future chef on our hands. I can’t wait for her to cook me some dinner ;)


On Wednesday night before I went to bed I said to Marc… I would love some BACON tomorrow and some pumpkin coffee. I’m so random I know, but guys I love breakfasttttttt. When I woke up and Marc was cooking bacon I knew it was going to be a good day! Especially since I didn’t have to cook. He’s the best.


On a different note from food, I’m loving the new training space at the YMCA. They added a lot of new equipment like these medicine balls and I am loving using them with my clients and using them for my workouts as well. Medicine Ball SLAMS is where its at.


My 21 day challenge group is starting Monday and I’m super thrilled with the amazing bunch of people I have participating in this group. It’s a great way to shape up but also learn a few things about health & fitness, the inspiration & motivation is an added plus. I can’t wait!!!


Last but not least I’m really LOVING Chobani Flip Yogurts. I consider them a treat because they are a little bit higher in sugar but as a dessert I think it’s healthy ;)

My 2 favorite so far are the Pumpkin Flip & the Salted Caramel Crunch Flip. I think it’s time I create my own!!
