Weighted Forever

Hey friends! How was your Friday? Hope you had a wonderful day 🙂

Before I set off on work to-dos this morning, I made the Pilot some blueberry scones:


(Nothing too crazy- they were the kind you pop out of a can, but the healthy kind from Whole Paycheck)

and also had a date with something I recently brought back in my life:



This girl has not touched weights probably in over a month. I have this thing that if I like something, I’ll go crazy with it. I really think that Bodypump temporarily burned me out from weights. I was doing it about 3 times a week for quite some time, and then it got to the point where I didn’t want to see a barbell again for a loooong time. So I didn’t 😉 Sometimes it’s a great idea to stop back, let your body refresh and start again.

I actually started lifting again last week, right before the Pilot came home, and it feels SO GOOD to be back at it.

Post-workout fuel:


(2 pieces of brown rice bread with goat cream cheese, smoked salmon, egg and capers, salad)

Perfection <3

So my job today was to find and price some items for work, so it involved shopping 🙂 Of course, I was a fan.

I found so many things I LOVED:


(In my dream world, my house would be filled with Mexican skeletons and Buddhas. People would probably be afraid to come over, haha)

Snackage was a Xoom juice with almond milk, blueberries, banana, strawberries and a scoop of Sun Warrior from my purse 🙂


This afternoon, the Pilot and I went to acupuncture together- it was his first appointment ever.

He was a little apprehensive…


The verdict?

He loved it!

At one point I glanced over at him and he was totally crashed out. He looked so cute with a needle sticking out of his forehead 😉

Well it’s dinner time over here, so I’ll see you guys tomorrow!

Hope you’re having a great night <3



Something to talk about: When was the last time you were burned out on something? What random snacks do you have in your purse? 🙂

    Have you ever seen the show Shameless? I think the pilot looks like a dark haired version of one of the characters – Tony the cop!

    I usually have mints and gum in my purse 😉 I got burnt out on running on a treadmill b/c I trained partly for a marathon on is…YowsER!

    After a year of going three to four times a week, I got burned out of bikram yoga. I lost the desire to get up and push myself so hard, when there was so much stress in my life. I most likely would have benefited from going,but my body needs a break from it! Yin is my new fave.

    I get burned out on foods more than anything. I get obsessed with certain foods and eat them daily. Then one day, I’ll reach for them and think “UGH!” The only ‘snacks’ in my purse are breath mints.

    I’ve been burnt out on the routine of life, but nothing this week at the beach won’t cure. Per your advice have blender-will travel.

    Bahaha, you would have Sun Warrior in your purse!! i know you rave and rant, and love SW. But i have to ask, is it really that tasty? do you get that weird chalky taste from it like with other protein/supplement powders?

    Urban rebounding after an obsession with it!

    i got burned out on Running and zumba, took 1 month off of each and it helped a lot.
    I always have an apple or a kashi bar in my purse.

    I was a bit burnt out after my first half marathon, but during the month I took off.. I did yoga!

    Glad you and the Pilot enjoyed the acupuncture appointment!

    I always have raw almonds in my purse and a Larabar in the car. You never know!

    I love that you have Sun Warrior in your purse! I get burned out on foods really quickly. Once I find something I love (and already have the ingredients to make), I tend to eat the same thing for a week, or two…and then want nothing to do with it for a while. Eventually I will burn out on something else and it goes on and on…
