Weekly Workouts + Menu

kettlebell workout

Hellooooooo! How goes it, friends?

It’s time for my weekly workouts and menu post! Just on Week 3 of posting the “what really happened” version rather than the plan. What really happened were some spectacular dinners, but a pretty sad showing of workouts thanks to the whole no-sleep thing I whined about on Friday.

But here’s what I did! :)

the workouts:

Monday | KettleToning (LOVED this workout. Did it with the cheap kettlebells I initially bought, I can’t WAIT to try again with my new gorgeous cast iron beauties!)
Tuesday | Nada…

Instaweek

sunset

Hello, my lovely friends!

I am TOTALLY failing at getting posts up more often and I’m sorry. I’m getting really good at gathering material for posts, but I just am struggling with getting them up lately. I’m so sorry. This week I really felt like I’d get it down, it’s my second week and my new job and I was ready to get in a better groove with my new routine and then …. incredible insomnia hit.

Hit Preston, that is. ;)

Except my sweet man is not the sweetest restless person and when he doesn’t sleep, I don’t sleep. I tried sleeping on the couch one night because I just needed some shut eye, but of course that was the night my classy neighbors decided to have an all-out call-the-cops screaming-bloody-murder BRAWL at 2 am. Round 2 came at 3:30.

Moral of the story: I’m super sleepy. I’m not getting the posts up that I’d planned. I’m staying in tonight and taking some ZQuil for dessert and sleeping as late as I want in the morning….

Hey everybody, happy hump day! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday! Geez.

Happy Sunday, friends! How has your weekend been so far? Mine has been great and busy and super productive. I took a class all day Thursday and Friday, which was in some ways a nice break from the office but was also a bit more grueling and tiring. At work, I theoretically sit at a…

Hiiiiii, lovely internet friends! So I’m starting to develop a pattern that I’m not happy with. I get some pictures, draft posts, maybe a workout or research for a health post done on the weekends.

A month ago we talked about the pros and cons of caffeine which was REALLY fun (for me, I hope it was fun for you too…) So today I’m talking about a similar topic: the pros and cons of red wine!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! Just like last time, nothing seemed to beat a pro-con list!

creamy pasta

Hiiiiiiiiii, internet friends! Sorry for the very long radio silence, I was starting to get super stressed and overwhelmed.

I’ve got a pretty pathetic roundup of food for you! This was last Thursday, and it was a ridiculous day. My whole week kind of looked like this. I didn’t eat very well, and kept reaching for the comfort food or stress eating all week long. I’ve been working on it this week….. Last Thursday…
