The weather is making me even crazier than usual, so I’m going to ramble for a bit.

I’m in a phenomenal mood and all I want to do it is be outside. (I even broke out the flipflops this morning)

Work? no thanks.

I got up yesterday and decided I was bored with breakfast, so I’ll just whip up some baked oatmeal. like its no big deal.

I used this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. so so good. Now, I want to try them all.

After work, I got my workout in. Progression speed intervals on the treadmill. surprisingly awesome. sweaty mess. loved it. My legs are hurtin’ today though. Monday’s leg circuits + that run = seriously sore


Then this happened…

Kale chips – the blog world loves them.  I really wanted to attempt some kind of kale so I went for it, using this recipe.

green leafy vegetable. unclear how this becomes chip-like

parmesan doesn't look so pretty anymore

so yeah.. They were decent. Crispy but not burnt, salty with parm.  I don’t really know what I was expecting. They were thin and almost dissolved in my mouth.  I lost interest after a few.

Would I make them again? Probably. But let’s be serious – they are not snack food and not as chip-like as I wanted, but a solid way to work in green veggies.


The biggest factor in my awesome mood – the weather. Its March and its in the 70’s. When I moved to Boston last year, I swear we got a foot of snow like every week til April..
My favorite part of my apartment is that I have a balcony and can open the slider. It makes me soo happy to have it open. This morning I woke up to this.

whether you can tell or not, its open. LOTS of fresh air

The sun was shining, the birds were chirping & the air was just awesome. It sounded cheesy just typing that. I should’ve taken a video so you can hear it.

I prepped dinner in the crock-pot and have fun lunch plans with Christina.

Just fabulous.


who’s having a great morning? thoughts on kale? better recipes I should be trying?

saturday & still sore

happy Saturday!!

Last night, I got unpacked, made myself dinner, hung out for a bit. So nice to be home and back in my apt. I met up with JT & his work friends at Liberty for a few drinks. Home & in bed by 1. love it.

Today, I got back to the gym, which I haven’t seen since Wednesday. oops. Granted Wednesday’s workout was at the hotel gym so the trip wasn’t a complete fail in that respect.   I did my third strength workout of the week for bootcamp. Of course, it kicked my ass.

My legs are still so sore from earlier this week. Thursday, they were barely functional. I spent some quality time with my foam roller afterwards though, so I’m hoping that helps. I have a feeling I’m going to be in pain for the majority of the next 7 weeks.

I’m off to F1 to celebrate Brent’s birthday with JT and much of the crew from last night. Pics tomorrow 🙂

Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend!
