{Zucchini Spritzer Mahi}

This is how I feel about my life this summer..

I feel like I should be able to stay on top of everything ALL the time. But in reality.. I'm actually about half way caught up with everything:)
Sometimes I stress out about the laundry not getting done, the kitchen being a mess, the babies made a little mess here, there and everywhere and I hop from one place to the other getting one chore half way done before I get side tracked with another.. On days I feel a little overwhelmed, there is always one thing that makes me feel better.. A good workout! Taking it out on the bar, kettlebell, or the pavement seems to make everything better. Today for my workout at GPP we were instructed do Tabatas! To see the workout go here! It was amazing and I felt much better after. If my workout just doesn't do it for me food always does. Tropical food. Like oranges and fish.

Q. When you feel overwhelmed what makes you feel better?

Q. Whats your favorite fish?
Salmon is actually my fav, but mahi is a close second.


  1. AMEN! I can only imagine what its like to have twinners! What a pretty din din. And I agree- a workout always de-stresses me. That and baking (opposites much). I'm not a fish fan...I can only do the ones that don't really taste like fish like tilapia and swordfish
