Defining Healthy

Defining Healthy

When I finally decided to take the plunge and start this blog, I knew I needed a name that would clearly define me and what I was going to write about.  I knew I wanted to talk about food prep and recipes.  I knew I wanted to post about workouts and training plans and races.  I knew I wanted to include ways we strive to keep our kids healthy.  And I knew I wanted to come across as genuine and…

Hey there and happy Friday to ya!  It’s going to be a rainy warm day on the East Coast, and Reagan and I are off to hang with my sister and my sweet nephews for the morning.  Then we’ll probably get some things done around the house before doing our weekly Costco run.  Luckily this kid LOVES running errands and helping around the house, so it’s a win-win for both of us.  This weekend we have grand plans to install…

Getting back into the groove

Getting back into the groove

Hello all and happy Wednesday!  We are now officially halfway through the week, and for us that means warmer temps (finally).  Although the long-range forecast has 20’s and 30’s back in the forecast starting Sunday, but I’m just going to pretend I didn’t see that 🙂  Looking through my iPhone photos last night I realized a lot has happened over here since I recapped our Christmas festivities.  So I figure I’ll just dump a bunch of photos in here and…

The why behind some of my recent food choices

The why behind some of my recent food choices

I am a creature of habit when it comes to food.  That is, until I’m not.  I generally choose a food and will eat it every day until I run it into the ground and never want to see it again.  What, you don’t do that?  I distinctly remember my 10-year running breakfast kick where I ate cereal, yogurt, and cranberry juice every.single.morning.  I don’t remember the kind of cereal, but rest assured it was the same for 10 years…

5 Things we do to maintain a clutter-free home

5 Things we do to maintain a clutter-free home

I have recently been reading about people choosing a word for 2018.  Something to focus on throughout the year.  I’ve heard everything from “intentional” to present.”  And while this year I prefer to focus on a short list of attainable goals, if I were to choose a word this year I think it would be SPACE.  I like the idea of building some “white space” into our family’s calendar to allow time to just be.  Time to be spontaneous.  Time…

Looking forward to a new year

Looking forward to a new year

Hey there!  I am back from 5 days off with my family, and am feeling particularly jazzed about life.  The past 5 days were the perfect mix of family time, household chores, and nagging errands that have been on our to-do lists for quite some time (vehicle maintenance – I am looking at you!)  But we ended the weekend with putting the kids to bed nice and early and holding a “summit meeting” to discuss the next 3 months.  We…

Sentence per picture – Christmas style

Sentence per picture – Christmas style

Hi there!  How is your week going so far?  Do you have any time off around the holidays?  Nathan and I went back to work Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, which was painful to say the least.  Note to self: working the day after Christmas is NOT FUN.  But we pushed through, and we are now in the middle of 5 days off in a row which is glorious!  With that, I am going to jump right in with…
