The Lately’s

Happy Thursday!

I threw up a late night workout last night, it’s a quick at home sweat fest, so make sure you check it out and give it a go!

It has been forever since I have just posted about my daily day to day stuff and I miss these chats. I figured today is a good time to catch you all up on my life. So here we go!

Lately, the weather here has been pretty amazing. In fact I can’t even remember having such a mild winter in all my life. I like to think it is the running gods controlling the weather because they knew I was pregnant all summer and didn’t get to hit up my favorite trails/pavement. IMG_0978[1]

Lately, while the twins are in preschool (3 days a week) I try and get outside for a quick run. It is a little tricky with Roe’s nap time but yesterday he was a pretty good sport.



Can you see the sweet smile looking up at you?

Lately, Bee picked up a virus (sore throat, fever) this week so we ended up at the doctor but she is now on the upswing and doing good. Roen also got his 4 month immunizations and is growing like a weed. I always hate the night of, and day after immunizations because they make him so uncomfortable and sad. AKA. No sleep or.. late night parties?


After the Doctor visit we went to the hospital cafeteria for lunch and I have to say that I love hospital food.


Grilled salmon, sweet potato and veggies for the win! It is cheap too! I paid $7 dollars for all of that!

Lately, I picked up a few extra classes at GPP the last two weeks because we had an awesome coach leave. So I have covered them. They start at 5 am on Thursday and Friday and I do love those classes but they are hard for me because of having to feed Roen, I set my alarm for 3:50am and pump for 20-30 minutes so he will have some food when he wakes up, get ready and get to the gym with enough time to get it all up and ready for the day. I love morning workouts but decided this time will have to wait and Ill have to stick with my 6:30 am classes till I’m done nursing. I’d do great till about 4 o’clock in the afternoon. So today was my last morning doing them.

I’m still teaching Body Pump and Body Attack and Body Conditioning throughout the week at night at the other gym I work at, nothing new there. Well, besides new treadmills that I was happy to see last week.

This morning after coaching and doing the GPP workout for the day, which was a rad core workout that had you do movements while standing on one leg while holding one dumbbell in the other. We did single leg deadlifts, bent over rows, bicep curls and OH presses. I know it doesn’t seem like a core workout, but that is the rad thing about it. It is cross-sectional movements while balancing on one leg which requires you to use all the small auxiliary muscles throughout your core to stabilize you throughout the movements. Give it a try!

Afterwards, I came home and made some breakfast.

Lately, this is has been my go-to meal for breakfast. I seriously love it because it really doesn’t take much time at all and it fills me right up for the rest of the morning.


Ezekiel Muffin- They are better then the sliced bread in my opinion. I toast it and put coconut oil on one ad almond butter on the other with sliced banana, Eat the rest of the banana with almond butter while my eggs are cooking.

I have mastered the runny yolk and love to smash it on top of the english muffin.


I am a huge fan of a runny yolk!

Lately, it has been busy keeping these two entertained during Roens nap time. I’m glad we have good weather so we can go outside and play on the tramp and ride their bikes around the driveway. I take my video monitor outside so I can still keep my eye on Roe.

I have a conditioning class I’m teaching tonight so I’m going to plan that workout and have a few errands to run. Ill pop back in tonight if I have time.

Have a great day!
