Food and Moves and Stuff…

October 9, 2015

Nice blog title, huh? I fail at being an “Optimized Blog Titler”…


Y’all, I’m living off of coffee today (and a lot of days). Hudson is a great sleeper but I never have more than 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep…my boy likes to eat, around the clock! 🙂

I’m really, really tired. By the end of the week, I have almost nothing left in the tank. Bear with me, I tend to ramble when I’m tired…

  • I’ve been eating really yummy food lately. My biggest incentive to eat healthy, now, is so that I produce lots of healthy breastmilk (ohhhh how times have changed!).  I eat a TON of salad, piled high with every veggie we can afford, every day. I’ve also LOVED PaleOMG’s most recent cookbook. I’ve made about 10 of her dinner recipes and they’re all out of this world. I can’t recommend her cookbook enough!


Eggs and pears...weird combo but I crave both for breakfast every morning!

Homemade brown sugar and cinnamon coated pecans...these are SO good and SO addicting!

  • I’ve been getting better at getting in a workout routine, but with me and Mark’s work and baby schedule, I’m having a hard time finding my groove. Running and bodyweight interval stuff are making up the majority of what I’m doing for workouts…mostly because they’re the easiest to do from home. Waaaaay down on the list of “Things We Want to Buy When We Have the Money” is a squat rack. I would love to be able to knock out some lifts from the comfort of my garage while Hudson naps…
  • Speaking of Hudson…he’s 2 months old next week. Ah!!!! He’s changing so quickly and I just want to soak it all in. I wish I could slow down the days…


  • I really don’t understand the people that have a baby to “fix” their marriage. Everyone always asks how me and Mark are doing now that we have a baby. I’m going to be real with y’all..marriage is a lot more work with a baby. We still love each other like crazy, yet at the end of the day, we’re both exhausted and keep realizing we’ve barely spoken about more than when the last time Hudson ate or who’s hanging with him while the other works the next day. So, we’re learning what marriage with a baby looks like…so far we’ve learned it involves even more patience and grace than normal, but that it also adds a whole new level of awesomeness. I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have a husband as incredible as Mark and know, more than ever, that I can’t ever take that for granted! 

Date night! #yolo #hothusband #weneededthis #bestfriend

That’s all I got.

Peace, love…and sleep! 🙂
