Homemade Squash Soup

Homemade Squash Soup

My wonderful soon-to-be-sister dropped off some beautiful, fresh squash! Sitting on my counter for probably over a week, I decided I had to do SOMETHING with them before they go bad. I've never cut or cooked with whole squash before so this was new to me. With some research I learned how to properly cut [...]

Outdoor Training Session With My New Rogue Weights

If you don't follow me on Instagram or Twitter (YOU SHOULD) lol, my fiancé Christian surprised me with my own set of Rogue weights and an all black Ohio barbell along with many other thoughtful gifts for Christmas!

The Yummiest Salmon Recipe EVER!

Christian and I have been alternating who makes dinner on Sundays before we watch Homeland [insert desperate cry for help that the last episode of the season is next week].

A Casual Car Ride With Christian and I

Soooooo I cannot stop watching this video!!! It's soooo much longer but the beginning has some not so nice words in it, therefore I edited it to this version!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've made these a few times now, and they are delicioussssss! Don't be alarmed when you feel the consistency of this batter; with almond meal, it tends to be super sticky, but have patience! When my niece and I made these the other day she was not so sure about the way the dough looked [...]

My Current Supplement Regimen

“I Just Don’t Have Time”

“I Just Don’t Have Time”

I wanted to write about this topic LONG before I started my Blog. We've all said it, many times "I just don't have time". For me, it was my excuse not to work-out or cook the meals I needed to in order to live a healthier lifestyle. I work 10 hour days 5 days a [...]

Far From What I Once Was, But Not Yet Where I Am Going To Be

Far From What I Once Was, But Not Yet Where I Am Going To Be

People see me today, and they think "she workouts, she eats healthy, it must be so easy for her". But what most people forget, is that everybody has a story, everybody has started somewhere, far from where they are today. This was me. Although not HUGE, I was very UNHEALTHY and bigger than I should [...]
