brunchin’ & baby planks


this had me CRYING LAUGHING!!!!!! you don’t feel her grind though!!!  by any means necessary, church clothes, boots, and all. maybe she was just trying out the gym after church to see if she wanted to join though. why do i keep trying to find reasons to justify what is going on here!?


every time i looked up sunday while getting ready for church Dego was randomly planking- and he was doing it correctly at that! natural born athlete right there, haha.  Chiso is first up to play sports and he wants to play literally everything.  after completing his first 1k you can’t tell that boy nothin’.


immediately after church, i planned on heading back home to meal prep and hit the gym since Sonny took the early shift.  however, he drove straight to North Italia for brunch!


i really only like surprises if food is involved so this was good. this was great.


Chiso spent the weekend with his grandparents so the house was EXTRA weird and quiet to us.  Dego was knocked out when we sat down, so Sonny & i enjoyed some appetizers while we chatted it up a bit.


bruschetta, baby!  this one was topped with: crescenza cheese, grilled asparagus, truffle, grana padano.


aaaaaand this one was topped with: grilled eggplant, roasted red pepper, saba, & oregano.

PhotoGrid_1430079643047i chose the *drum roll* sammaaaaaaaan!  of course.  it came with roasted mushroom fregula, horseradish gremolata, and breadcrumbs.   well done.  #punintended 


10/10 for presentation. so pretty!

20150426_140527-01and this was Sonny’s D-friggin’-licious breakfast wrap!!!!  when we go back….i’m getting that. Italian sausage, smoked mozzeralla, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, roasted peppers……

nap time again. we get it. #teamnosocks


i hit the gym after brunch for some cardio and abs.  needed a break from the weights so that i could hit that reset button and start fresh the next day (monday).

1 hour of fat-burning, steady-state cardio went down!  i used the arc trainer, the stair master, and finished with a lil’ foam roller action cause it makes my muscles feel so good!  do you own a foam roller?  ever see people using one?  try these moves after your workout or on rest day at home:


then i got up outta there.

20150426_184237-01-1     back home, i whipped out one of those Weber Just Add Juice Marinade Mixes i found at Walmart.  i used a combo of fresh squeezed lemon and orange juice with the Sesame Ginger blend.  that’s all ya gotta add!  water would work fine too i’m sure. IMG_20150426_223912i used low-sodium lemon pepper seasoning on the brussels sprouts, and normally i’d take the time to make my sweet potatoes nice and pretty with my Deluxe Fry Cutter!  but not that night. nope. sometimes it’s all about getting it DONE. i went to bed with a clear, confident conscious and ready for the new week.  i hope you did too, fit friends.

  1. Now that’s what I call MOTIVATION!! That pic was wonderful. You can almost feel her wanting it!! YES!!

    I totally laughed at your Dego doing his planks. He is such a cutie! Y’all must just love him to pieces! And he probably wondered where Chiso went off to?!

    The food looks good, too. ALL.OF.IT.

    I’ve been wanting a foam roller but haven’t gotten one yet. Do you recommend any brands?

    Oh! And have you ever used grass fed collagen? It’s supposed to be good for joints, hair, skin and nails but I am having a hard time drinking it! It’s gross! I have the Great Lakes Collagen in the orange canister. I mixed it just now with some gingerade kombucha and got it all down…..ick!

    I need to look at pinterest for ideas!


    • LOL!
      funny, i’ve been telling my hubby how bad we need to get a foam roller for the house. those gym mats are germafied enough and if you really think about it, sharing a public foam roller is pretty yucky!!!!! that said, we’re getting one. i will suggest a brand soon as i find one; i’ll start at Academy and Target though. never heard of grass fed collagen but the way you described it i think i’m good, hahahaha


speak your mind!
