Nap then Snack + Spring Arms Workout

Hiiii friends! How’s your day been?


So glad you liked the video– we had fun making it 😀 If you ever have video or post ideas, please send them my way!
A couple of notes:

-We both say “You know?” A LOT. Somehow I manage to turn it off in video posts and the Pilot doesn’t say it in his flight briefs, but in real life, all bets are off. Last night, we were laughing at the amount of “you know”s from the Pilot in the video post… and then we laughed about breaking the futon.

-The futon is actually my brother’s. He’s lending it to us, since all of the furniture is in the POD. Sorry, Buddy.

-Bella thoroughly enjoyed her directing debut 😉

I just woke up from a little nap,

and then had a snack.


I’ve written about this on the blog before, but every time I nap, food is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. I go straight from couch to kitchen. The Pilot always teases me about it 😉 Today’s snack (1 egg + 2 egg whites, green salsa, and goat cheese) was extra special because I flipped the egg! No spatula or anything. Ka pow.

This morning, I munched some gluten-free oats with blueberries and an amazeball on top:


(Side note: have you made these yet?


Please do, I think you’ll love them)

and then we looked at two houses with our new realtor.

The first had a really unique floor plan:


and the second had two VERY cute dogs 😀

dog dogs

No winners as of yet, but it helped to give the realtor a better idea of what we’re looking for.

Smoothie break:


(I had almond milk, banana, blueberries and Sun Warrior from my purse)

and a trip to the dog park with little Bell.


Seksi Pilot in the sun:


I’m off to get ready to workout, but hope you have an amazing night!

See ya in the morning <3



Something to do:

Arm workout!

After posting yesterday’s leg workout, I received a request for an equally killer arm workout. Ask and ye shall receive, friends 🙂

Spring Arms Workout

Add in this workout to your usual workout split, or on a non-consecutive weights day. As always, make sure to check with a doc before making any fitness or nutrition changes.

Spring Arms Workout

Warm-up, cardio 5-7 minutes (low intensity, bringing it up to moderate)- run/walk, elliptical, bike, jump rope

Complete the following circuit, and then repeat the entire thing 1-2 more times. Use weights that are challenging, but that are appropriate for your fitness level.

1. Push-ups (start in full plank position, and when/if you need to drop to your knees, go ahead. 15 total)

2. Mountain climbers (45 seconds)

3. Bench tricep dips (bend knees 90 degrees to make it easier if you need to, 15)

4. Bent over row and reverse fly combo (15)

5. Burpees (Any variation; 45 seconds)

6. Incline hammer curls (12-15)

    Napping always seems to fire up my appetite too! I rarely nap but when I do its a given that I’ll make a beeline for the kitchen as soon as I get up.

    I’m always hungry after napping, even if I had lunch just before my nap!

    Ever since I discovered the AMAZEBALLS, I make them all the time! They always hit the spot, just the right amount of savory and sweet! If you have anymore secrets like that, you better not be holding out! 😉
