Happy Friday!

While I am happy it’s Friday, my weekend actually started on Wednesday this week 🙂  My parents drove into Denver from Indiana on Saturday so we have been visiting and doing so many fun things!  Yesterday, Brian and I drove to meet them in Breckenridge where we are staying for a few days to enjoy a little mini vacation away from home.


Despite snow on the mountains, the sun is bright and hot!  We are thoroughly enjoying our time here 🙂

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

five things friday

Five Things I Ate:

  • A bowl from Zeal with brown rice, shrimp, and roasted veggies.  I didn’t get sauce because none of the options were FODMAP friendly, but the bowl still tasted 100% amazing!  There were roasted radishes in there…have you ever had a cooked radish?  Amazing 🙂


  • Banana “Ice Cream” from Ba-Nom-a-Nom….a food truck that serves Banana “ice cream!”  So amazing!

  • This Asian-style noodle bowl!  Mom made it FODMAP friendly and it is so delicious.  Brown rice quinoa noodles are topped with grilled chicken marinated in tamari among other things then topped with peanuts and this light cucumber, bell pepper salad.  So good!

Five Workouts I Did:

This has been a lighter week in terms of fitness, but that’s ok!  I’m having fun, moving my body and spending time with family.

  • Taught Bodypump
  • Hiking


  • Walking Bernie
  • 3 mile Run
  • Planning on doing a little workout in the resort gym tomorrow morning…not sure yet!

Five Things Making Me Happy:

  • Visiting with my family! It is so fun to have them around (we haven’t visited since Christmas!) and we are doing so many fun things.  Yesterday, we visited the Country Boy Mine in Breckenridge and actually got to go deep into a mine!! So cool.

Country Boy Mine

  • Beginning my RD program.  My actual program begins on Monday and I really can’t believe it! 🙂
  • Sunshine!  I feel like it rained for a solid month, which I hear is pretty rare out here in CO.  I am so thankful the sun is shining and it is starting to feel like summer.
  • Hiking.  I love that summer is officially hiking season.  I have really missed hitting the trails!
  • My family meeting Bernie!! Of course I am in love with him, but my family seems to be pretty enamored with the little nugget too.

I haven’t done much blog reading this week, so I don’t really have anything to share in the “posts I have loved section.”  I hope your week was great and your weekend is fantastic!
