Weekend Wrap-Up (It’s Officially Summer Break)

Hello, everyone! How was your weekend?! Ours was pretty chill. It was my first weekend of summer break, which makes me so happy!!

Here’s the recap:


Dinner was a thai veggie burger and corn on the cob! It was so tasty.

We watched some TV before bed.


I woke up, had some coffee, and taught one online class.

After teaching, I made some almond butter protein pancakes topped with bananas and honey for breakfast.

I watched some TV before heading to the gym. I did around 20 minutes on the stair climber (until my heart rate started getting to high), then ten minutes on the arc trainer.

When I got home, I had a quick lunch, cleaned a bunch, and prepped my classes for next week.

Once it was time for dinner, I had terriaki chicken, corn, and a salad.

My husband worked on redoing our bathroom and continued after dinner. I made a healthier s’more and watched Shark Tank while he did that haha!

Low fat Graham crackers, dark chocolate, bananas, and almond butter. YUM.

We watched a movie before bed.


This morning, I woke up, had some coffee and Quaker overnight oats before going to church with a friend.

After church and a quick lunch, I went to the library, then the grocery store.

When I got home, I unloaded, then took a nap. My body has been exhausted with all of the meds and shots, but I know it will all be worth it!

My husband made a delicious dinner of pork loin, herb potatoes, and salad! I am loving the taste of food cooked in our cast iron skillet.

We also cut up a watermelon!

Everything was delicious!!

Now I am off to clean up the kitchen before our show comes on.

Have a wonderful upcoming week, friends!

With love,

Weekend Wrap-up  (Food, Fast Cars, And A Little Sickness)

Happy Monday, all! I have enjoyed having an extra long weekend due to Labor Day. It has been a fun, productive, and relaxing weekend  (minus getting my first cold of the season). 


I slept in longer than usual Saturday morning due to a cold and just plain feeling exhausted. It was gross and rainy outside so I drank coffee under my heated blanket in front of my fire place for a while.

After some relaxing, I felt good enough for a treadmill workout at my gym. I decided to get one of my favorite smoothies from the gym cafe after my run. 

Cocoa matcha smoothie with almond milk.

After the gym, my husband and I went to his shop so he could change my oil and work on his car. 

The evening was spent having an at home date night. We tried a new spot for dinner called Poke Bros. They have build your own bowls and are known for their fish. 

My bowl had brown rice, chicken  (I should have gotten fish), carrots, avacado, ginger, edamame, toasted coconut, and 2 different sauces. Very tasty!

After dinner, we watched the new Baywatch. We thought it was hilarious!!


 We spent the day at the race track for an event called Import Faceoff. The track was having issues which made for a long day, but the weather was beautiful and I always enjoy watching my husband race!

Hanging out in between races.

My husband! 

After the race we went out to dinner at one of our go to places. I got grilled Cajun chicken fingers and a salad.


I woke up with my sinuses feeling pretty swollen. I slept nearly 10 hours which I never do. I took a bath with essential oils and epsom salts, took some meds, and did a short yoga video. That helped a lot and I got the energy to go outside for a short run. 

Once I got back, my husband and I tagged teamed house work, yard work, and grocery shopping. 

Dinner was turkey burgers and plantain cooked in coconut oil. 

I could literally eat it every day. 

Now we are just relaxing until our show comes on. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! 

With love,
