Meal Planning (6/7-6/13)

Woops! We kind of fell off the meal planning wagon last week. Between returning from Regionals late Sunday night, Neil being on call all week, going live with a client site and getting ready for Neil’s next race this weekend, things got a little crazy. We got back into the groove and did our normal Sunday […]

Meal Planning (5/24-5/30)

Farmer’s Market this weekend. It’s CrossFit Regionals week for Central Region! As you may remember, Neil and I each picked a weekend activity to do solo. His was a float trip and mine is to attend the Central CrossFit Regional in Minneapolis this weekend. It’s my first time leaving Neil and the Beeb! This weekend […]

Meal Planning (5/17-5/23)

So by the looks of it, Kaitlan has possibly TWO more teeth on the way. She’s been really amiable the past few days, so either the baltic amber teething necklace we picked up last week is working or we’re definitely going to be in for it. A friend at the gym swears by these necklaces, […]

Meal Planning (5/10-5/16)

Sorry for the delay on this week’s meal planning. We’ve had an interesting week. It started this weekend with Kaitlan developing a low-grade fever on Saturday afternoon. We didn’t think much of it, sometimes if she hits a growth spurt she spikes a bit, but then it continued into Sunday, then Monday, and on Tuesday […]

CrossFit: Memorial Day Murph!

Over the weekend, our CrossFit Box undertook the brutal “Murph” workout. Just look at it! A 1 mile run, followed by 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, and 300 air squats? Insanity. And to top it off, just when your legs feel like rubber from the 300 air squats, you have to finish the workout with […]

Zoom Zoom!

This weekend went fast, but thankfully, we maximized every minute of it. We had kind of an ambitious list of to-do’s. Training runs, workouts, car painting, a client website go-live and some hefty yard work. I worried we might have set our sights high with the hot weather in the forecast, but we pushed through, […]

The Juice is Loose!

A few weeks ago while working upstairs in the loft, we came across “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” on Netflix. We were immediately intrigued by the premise that a man had cured his weight-related health issues with a lifestyle change that involved a 60-day juice fast. That’s no small order. In the beginning of the […]

Veggie Stuffed Squash Boats

I have something to confess. Until making this dish, I’d never had spaghetti squash before. I know what you’re thinking, “For shame Jessica!” I know it’s pathetic, but hear me out. I didn’t grow up eating them, they were always purely decorative. At Halloween and Thanksgiving my aunts would place them on tables as centerpieces […]

At Home Take-Out: Healthified Szechuan Pork Stuffed Peppers

I feel like our kitchen avoidance dinner posts are becoming almost a broken record. This Summer heat is unrelenting! We have tons of yard work and new bedding plants that are sorely being neglected and the lawn looks like it has some form of mange. I’m starting to think the only season that can truly […]

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

If you were on Twitter Tuesday night, you may have noticed I spent the entire night baking and prepping breakfast for my first meeting with my new department staff at work the following morning. It wasn’t anything groundbreaking, just a nice double-batch of homemade cinnamon rolls — or at least that’s what I thought. When […]
