When life gives you lemons, do a burpee.

Holy moly, what have I been doing?

I have been very busy becoming an addict… and not the type you’re thinking of…

1) I have become ADDICTED to working out at Foundry Fitness. Can’t get enough burpees, pull-ups, burpee-pull-ups, squats, lunges, snatches, kettle bell swings, planks, presses, etc!!! I am having a blast getting toned, lean and STRONG. Because my plantar fasciitis has become unbearable, I have limited my running to 1x per week and up’d my Foundry workouts to 4-5x per week. If I can’t run, then I am going to get jacked!

2) I am also ADDICTED to the smoothies from the Whole Foods coffee bar. Fresh, raw ingredients blended into a delicious concoction. They make perfect meal replacements, are relatively inexpensive, and taste amazing! The smoothie-makers even let you add extra ingredients into your smoothies! Including wheat grass!

My two favorites:

“The Big Yummy”: banana, dates, almond butter, almond milk, ice (and I have them add spinach to make it green!); &

“Drink Your Greens”: kale, spinach, pineapple, mango, strawberries, fresh pressed apple juice, ice

More food…

3) I am crazy ADDICTED to RAW coconut water! It is the perfect treat post-workout to naturally replenish electrolytes. Coconut water has the same chemical composition as human plasma and full of healthy nutrients! Did you know that if you get a raw coconut water that is pink, it is super special? The pink tone means that there are extra phenols in that specific bottle! More antioxidants!

4) I am also ADDICTED to the delicious gluten-free, vegan soups from Souper Girl. Love that she is local! I have tried the Potato Leek, and also the Moroccan style Harira. DELICIOUS! I added some spicy corn salsa to the Potato Leek for texture, and it was still amazing!

Clearly food cannot be a valid excuse for not posting…

So, a lot of changes have been happening in my life. The biggest one has been moving out of my amazingly convenient apartment and into my old bedroom at my parents’ house. Not the most ideal situation, but it’s what people do these days, right? Move out, get married, then move back home? That’s what I’ve heard, anyways. At least I will be able to save plenty of money for my own kettle bell set…

Look rad, feel rad, be rad.

  1. Yes and yes and yes I should just have you write a blog for my current life too.. It would say almost the same things.. except for the fact that I do not have plantar fasciitis and that I have been back home for 3 years now 🙂 haaa!!
