Weekend Snapshots {8/25/14}

Hey all, I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

I am running around like a crazy woman today attempting to get back into the swing of being in class all day while still feeding and caffeinating myself. Here is a quick look at my weekend!

weekend snapshots


Pre-workout questie and strawberry protein shake.


Coffee with a friend.


Who shares my weird enjoyment of wandering the aisles of World Market. Of course I found the wine aisle.


Fresh mango.


Nekter date with Emily. I was way too excited about a good acai bowl in northern Cali.


Deadlift and squat workout with my partner in crime from weightlifting class last semester who I was finally reunited with. I spared you the crazy face, but if you are dying to seeing it check out Instagram.


Post-workout Whole Foods protein smoothies and salads.


Sunday meal prep. Chicken breast, ground turkey, veggies, protein brownies, and unpictured brown rice. Protein brownie recipe can be found here.

Happy Monday!

Country, Cardio, and Meal Prep

Happy Friday! I have a little bit of everything for you today. I know my blog posts have been very picture heavy lately, and lacking any real content, but stick with me as I (and the blog) go through some changes and adjustments. Good things to come, I promise!

So let’s talk music. I typically listen to podcasts (here are a few of my favorites) while I workout, but lately I’ve needed a little something to pump me up so I’ve been going back to music.

Country Remixed from tbuck on 8tracks Radio.

I know all you die hard country and edm fans are probably going to die when you hear it (and not in a white girl dead kind of way), but seriously go listen to this while you workout and tell me it is not the best playlist ever.
I have been sticking to my boring old lifting split lately, but after doing a sampling for Nutrishop at Orange Theory, I am dying (so much dying in this post…) to try a class.

The workout combines treadmill intervals, rowing, and weights, and the goal is to keep your heart rate in the “orange zone”. I know plenty of bloggers who have already fallen in love with it, and I have no doubt it would kick my cardio-deprived booty.
Actually, I have been doing a little bit of cardio lately. After an extended break from it while I focused on building strength and muscle, it feels good to sweat my face off.

I am starting my (hopefully) final semester of school (!!) on Monday, so I am slowly easing back into prepping my meals. When life gets crazy and I get lazy this little place called Green Bites that has a “fitness menu” and does bodybuilding-esque meals has been saving me.

Basically, you pick your protein (chicken, fish, or steak in 4, 6, 8, 0r 12 oz), your starch (brown rice or sweet potato, and a green veggie. The pricing is reasonable and the food tastes darn good for being so simple. I have my eye on their protein pancakes, shakes, and cookies also.

And finally, I posted this throwback Thursday on Instagram yesterday and knew you all would appreciate it.


Forever stealing toys from boys.

Have a fabulous weekend, friends!

Breakfast Lately

Today is the last day to enter the Skoop giveaway!

I feel like I have been slacking on food pictures lately, specifically breakfasts, so this week I am going to rejoin the WIAW party (thank you, Jenn!) with a massive breakfast dump, heavy on the photos and light on the words. I’ve been switching off between oats, pancakes, and waffles for the most part, with the occasional who am I eating salad for breakfast occurrence and the all I want for breakfast is chocolate occurrence.




All of the waffles and pancakes are random blend protein/coconut flour/gf pancake mix so unfortunately I have a total of zero recipes to share. If you are looking for one though, check out these ones.

Happy hump day!

Favorite breakfast of the moment?
