Avocado Pomegranate Salad & Stinky People At The Gym


I have been really good lately about putting my food on a plate. I think it has helped me too. My favorite thing lately has been salads!

There is just something about them that I love. The colors? The burst of different flavors? I know it is no starburst or anything but to me this is just as good!


In the mix.

  • 4 oz. Shredded Crockpot Chicken
  • 3 Cups Iceberg lettuce -> I love the crunch lately
  • 1/2 Avocado sliced
  • 1/4 of a onion
  • Handful of Pomegranate seeds! -> They sell them at costco all ready to go. BONUS.

Bee lately has loved holding baby Roe and talking and kissing straight at his face. It melts my heart that she asks to hold him. Too bad Roe doesn’t feel the same way about his big sister.. ha! 


This is what most of our mornings look like. We love to hang out together in bed and just talking and catching up with our plan for the day. I think it is so funny that my kids just climb into our bed and ask what we’re doing today. If I say no plans really.. they will make some. 

Most of my runs lately have been on the treadmill.

Yesterday I did allllmoooost 5 miles.


Have you ever been running on a treadmill, then someone jumps on the one next to you and just SMELLS sooooo bad? I couldn’t breath.. and I just told myself I was almost there and I’ll finish 5. BUT this is pretty much how it went sown in my mind… “I can do it. I will just hold my breath.. nope.. I’m at a 7.4 I have to breath… Can’t stop.. Why is she holding on too the treadmill at an incline.. eh. Keep going.. wth is this chick wearing.. worst perfume ever. I will just breath through my mouth..  I can’t breathe. I can taste it. Oh my gosh.. I’m done I can’t. I just can’t.

I hit the emergency stop and got off that treadmill at 4.67. 

Yep.. Moral of the story.. PLEASE don’t douse yourself in the worst perfume ever before hitting the gym or maybe it was a B.O smell. Who knows..gym courtesy.. make sure your smell doesn’t “linger.”

It has been few days since I have blogged due to a busy week. I have picked up a few classes at the gym while one of the instructors is out of town so my days have been packed! Good thing I love my job. Tonight after teaching a few classes I headed to catch my cousin compete in a region drill competition. She did amazing and so did her team.


I used to be on drill and it was totally déjà vu being there.. like when I had to actually pay to get in.. and sit and watch the “drill down.” I weirdly miss it! But I’m sure as soon as I even attempted to do the splits or something I would change that tune pretty quick. Ha! 

Question of the day

How do you deal with a GYM stench?

What is your favorite salad topping?
