Fit Friday-Mom Edition #3

Hello and happy Friday, friends!! I am enjoying my Starbucks this morning and waiting for the stormy weather to hit. My sweet baby is napping (but probably not for long).

The days have been crazy busy since baby K takes fewer and shorter naps, but oh she sleeps like a champ at night! Yay!!

We have had a great week, minus her 2 month shots. Guys….my heart shattered during those. Her face was pure shock, followed by both of us crying. I was so thankful my husband was there to calm her down. Ugh.

Anyway….lets start with some food this week….

Salmon, potatoes and peppers, and Hawaiian rolls

Grilled chicken, cauliflower mac cheese (YUM), and a salad.

Whole Foods salad bar.

My husband has pretty much taken over the main cooking duties because baby is demanding in the evenings.

WORKOUTS:

*outside runs (we have had some nice weather)

*elliptical

*pure barre videos

*walks with baby

*a barbell strength class (thanks to my mom for babysitting)

I also consider carrying around my 11 pound baby all day a workout haha!

OTHER:

We visited dad at work this week and had lunch. It was so fun!

Baby also got to see all of her grandparents and her uncles! What a great week.

This weekend we are hoping to purge some things from the house.

Have a great one, all!

With love,

Carly

Foodie Friday 

Hey there all you lovely people! Happy Friday!! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? My plans include Ikea with a girlfriend, cleaning, laundry, and packing for vacation! 

Having the summer off work, I have had time to try new places and spend time with more people. I wanted to share some of my recent  favorite food finds. 

ZEST JUICE CO. 

This place is excellent! They have fresh juices, health shots, smoothies, and tasty food. My mom and I went the other day and I had a smoothie with strawberries, coconut milk, peanut butter, etc. I also had parmesan avacado toast. YUM!

Acacados, vegan parmesan, wheat toast, and greens.

CHOP 5

I have been wanting to try this place for a while now. They have build your own salads and bowls, as well as signature items.

I made a bowl with cilantro rice, peas, tomatoes, corn, edamame, chicken, and a jalepeno lime vinaigrette. My mom made a salad. I enjoyed my meal a lot and will definitely be back!

 GRILLED CHICKEN LEGS 

I love summer because we grill a lot. I love chicken legs and I can get a good amount for cheap. 

I made a healthy marinade out of minced garlic in olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Easy, but SO tasty!

SKINNY GIRL CHOCOLATE ALMONDS AND CHERRY YOGURT 

This mixture is everything!! I love putting nuts in my yogurt, and when I saw the cherry flavor in my fridge I had to put something with chocolate in it. I had one pack of my skinny girl chocolate coated almonds (these are great by the way) and added them to my yogurt. Filling and delicious! I had this alongside of coffee and a lara bar! 


There you have it! A few favorites from this week. What are you guys loving lately?! 

Have a fantastic weekend!

With love,
