Hey guys!

How was the weekend?  Did you miss the hour of sleep on Sunday?  Honestly, I kind of did!  I was a little tired on Sunday and the day FLEW by.

Overall, it was a really great and productive weekend.  I wish I did a bit more relaxing, but with school and taking care of Bernie going on during the week, I have to do a lot of my blogging and fitness stuff on the weekends.  It’s all good though…as long as it gets done!

Friday, Brian’s mom came into town for a wedding floral arranging class and puppysat Bernie so I could hit the library to get some work/studying done.  It was glorious!

Friday night dinner:  salad topped with baked salmon rubbed with a delicious Indian spice rub my friend Erin gave me.  So good!!

Then, I had some banana “ice cream” and a coconut oil chocolate chip bar 🙂

And Bernie was SUPER snuggly 🙂


Saturday morning I took advantage of the early sunshine (the sun was out at 6:30am!!!) and got in a quick run.  It felt sooo good!


Then, we hit up our final session at puppy school!! I’ll be posting a recap/review of puppy school soon for any Denver area peeps that are looking for a great dog trainer!

We picked Kate up from her flower class then went to the Irish Snug for a little happy hour action.  Love that place!

The rest of our Saturday night was SUPER relaxing including a movie and peanut butter cookies 🙂

Sunday, I baked up some Banana Nut Muffins for snacks/breakfasts throughout the week and subbed in ground up walnuts for the almond meal.   Thankfully, they turned out great!


I created a new video for you guys!! Now, I just have to edit (that’s the hard part!)

behind the scenes

We took Bernie on a little playdate and it was so adorable!  He absolutely LOVED digging in the dirt.

Dirty nose…


He was so tired after playing outside.

And because he was a tad bit muddy we popped him in the bath 🙂  So cute!

    • Hi Jen!! Thanks for reading! 🙂 You will love Core Power 🙂 let me know what you think about the banana muffins too!

  1. Haha glad our outdoor bathtub made an appearance. Loved seeing Bernie dig!

    Your meal plan looks awesome – going to check out those chicken burgers and lentil bowls for inspiration. I hope the quinoa risotto + walnut cheese sauce turn out 🙂 I made a quinoa risotto in the crockpot but haven’t tried it on the stove!

    • 🙂 We love your bathtub!! Quinoa risotto in the crockpot sounds wonderful..sometimes I just don’t want to stir for 30 minutes! The lentil bowl was AMAZING! You would love it 🙂

  2. I also missed that hour of sleep..I took an 8AM spin class and did not appreciate having to wake up so early!

    My favorite thing I’ll be eating this week is a stewed beef with Guinness…so amazing! 🙂

    Hope you have a great week! P.S. are you ready for the Bachelor finale??
