Getting To Know Me A Little Better

Hi Everyone!

I hope you have been having a fantastic week so far! We have had a pretty busy week so far reorganizing our house, making some improvements, and getting ready for our big trip to Peru next week.

I wanted to do a fun post that would help you get to know me better.  I thought of 20 questions that would reveal some fun facts about me and give you a chance to learn a little more about me.  Hope you enjoy!

Mission Completed: Learned How To Perfectly Fry An Egg

I love breakfast, especially breakfast involving eggs. I could eat breakfast for any meal (who needs lunch food? It’s usually overrated). So, normally, breakfast and eggs are a must have every day for me. I generally mix-up the different ways I eat eggs…scrambled with a variety of ingredients, an omelette, poached, or over-easy. I have always liked sunny-side up eggs when I go out for breakfast, but never really attempted to make eggs sunny-side up at home because I was always intimidated by the process (lame, I know). I have tried a few times before and always failed to make it sunny-side up, so I just stopped going there. My eggs basically always came out folded over anyways, so it seemed better just to go with over-easy method I knew.

Workout Summary for the Week of 8/11/14

Since we started CrossFit at the beginning of August, we had only been able to go to a class once a week. This week definitely changed that pattern…we went 4 classes this week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, we took a rest day from CrossFit because we went to visit my family to see my brother and our niece and nephew that were visiting. We were still able to play an hour of tennis, a short game of racquetball, and bring my nephew to the beach to go body boarding. Yes, we definitely had an active, but fun week!

We are both really starting to enjoy CrossFit and get the hang of things. We learned a lot this week, and had so much fun going to classes.  Although, it’s certainly good to have the weekend off to rest and recuperate. Jumping to four hours of CrossFit does not come without some a ton of soreness!  No pain, no gain, right?

never give up

So, this post is about a camping trip we took back in May to Havasupai Falls, when the blog was planned, but not yet actually up and running. I knew that I would want to share about this trip when I started the blog because it is an amazing camping spot that has some of the prettiest water you have ever seen!

My (Paleo) Story

My introduction to the Paleo lifestyle actually came from my husband, T. He had a co-worker who talked to him about how his wife has had life-long heart issues, had been frequently in and out of hospitals, and on medication almost her whole life. Since switching to the Paleo diet, she had improved her health to the point that she has significantly decreased her need for medication that she has previously relied on and drastically reduced hospital visits. At first, I thought my husband was crazy, and that there was no way I could follow the diet because it was too strict. However, as we discussed it more, I became intrigued. As someone who has always been plagued by stomach and digestive issues, I began to wonder if it might help me.
