Loading up the grill



This weekend wasn’t the greatest, and I hate to say that because weekends are clearly awesome but not when Ava is sick. It seems that every other week she is sick from some new cold at daycare. This one is Coxsackie virus, something I have never heard of until a couple of weeks ago when daycare sent out a note saying that one of the infants had the virus. It was almost inevitable that Ava got it.  Soo with a fever and a rash over the past few days, we have been giving Ava some extra TLC and she seems much better today!

We got in some long walks this weekend which was great! When Ava was uncomfortable we took her out and walked until she fell asleep. We basically did whatever kept her happy & comfortable!

Yesterday morning I headed to an early Group Power class, this week we are launching the new workout so I was happy to practice one more time before I taught this morning. It is a tough workout, but then again what workout isn’t challenging?? If a workout is easy then you aren’t working hard enough!

My arms were shaking by the end… there are soo many pushups.

When I got home from class I refueled with a Chocolate Protein Shake & a banana.


We spent the rest of the afternoon hanging around the house and doing some food prep.


Do you ever load up your grill with healthy eats?

Go through your fridge and see what veggies & meats you can throw on your grill all at once.. don’t leave any empty spots on the grill!

I take advantage of the nice weather to use the grill as an easy way to get in some quick food prep for the week, with some tasty & healthy foods. PLUS the cleanup is ridiculously easy!! I am all for having NO DISHES to clean!


We cooked some BBQ Chicken Thighs, zucchini, red pepper, & Pesto Grilled Chicken. We are all about summer time grilling and I love having the fridge stocked with some easy grab and go meals.

My Monday morning began with Group Power! My workout left me feeling energized but then tired! I think that is from lack of sleep but man do my muscles feel stronger. Gotta love it!


Do you have any grilling tips? What do you throw on your grill?
