I swear these posts come faster and faster each week, and I feel like I’m stuck on the same track right now…sometimes though, I like it that way. Kind of takes the guess work out of it, know what I mean.

Of course, standard pre-workout [not pictured] is my Rehydrate, Spark, and Arginine Extreme along with Muscle Strength and Catalyst. After my cardio at the gym I also drink a quick protein drink — just protein powder and water.

Back at home and I’m starving!! My latest obsession is Protein Pumpkin Pancakes. It seem like that’s all I’ve been eating for a week now.

Super easy to make!

1/3 c oat flour [ground up oats]
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 scoop protein powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp pumpkin
1 tbsp greek yogurt
1/3 c egg whites
1/3 cup almond milk

Mix everything up in a bowl and cook them on top of a griddle. Tada!

This week for Logan, we’re learning about Bugs!! So I made him a not-so-scary spider breakfast. He stared at it for just a few minutes before eating up all the eyes and legs.

Snack time came fast. Logan seems to be hungrier than usual lately — growing like a weed too, just bought a slew of 2T clothes! So he ate it and it was all gone before I could take a picture of it. But, some graham crackers and a pea squeeze pouch made him happy. I had some cook egg whites with mustard.

Lunch…no shocker here…filling up on greens!! Big salad with chicken and a teensy chunk of sweet potato.

I made some noodles and marinara sauce for Logi. He loves to suck all the sauce off the noodle, then use the noodle as a horn. Entertainer of the year. Plums and turkey were also on his plate.


Afternoon snack again came by in a whiz. Logan woke up from his nap and immediately ran to the pantry knocking [or banging] on the door. Some goldfish crackers and apple chunks was the quickest thing I could get prepared. And a handful of pumpkin spice almonds were shoved in my mouth before I lost my sanity from the knocking [or banging].

My latest food prep item is turkey muffins. I love them because it makes 12 muffins and I can keep them in the fridge for lunch or quick dinners all week long. And that’s exactly what we did last night. Turkey muffins with a sweet tater and broccoli was the perfect quick meal to make. Of course, with a toddler, you have to do some modifications, so he had some turkey muffin, cottage cheese, mandarin oranges, and broccoli. Yes, he’s suddenly become a big fan of broccoli!! And he likes to scoop his cottage cheese on his oranges. Where he learns these things, I have no clue.



After a sippy cup of milk, I finished off the evening with an AdvoCare cake and some yogurt. Seriously. I want every night to end like this.


Pumpkin Spice Monster Cookies

September 16, 2014

Let’s talk about how many things you can cram in a cookie. Like for reals. Because these cookies are stuffed to the max with yumminess — or trashiness. But either way, they’re something that you need to have like ASAP to kick off this fall season. Monster cookies are like my fav cookie. First, the […]

Weekend Ramblings

September 15, 2014

Oh hi Monday. I’d like to say that it’s nice to see you, because this weekend was a little ca-razy. Like totally gearing up for that Halloween spirit — Bat shit — crazy. Logan has suddenly learned that he can squeal at the top of his lunges, pushing his lawnmower popper at the dogs, and […]

Ab Attack

I’m on a huge ab kick right now. Which, somehow seems a little backwards to me since this is the end of the summer, and abs kind of go in to hiding. But¬†hey,¬†whatevs. Toned abs are toned abs, whether they’re hiding under fall sweaters or not. So, let’s do it!   And I’m seriously dying […]

What {the baby and} I Ate Wednesday

September 11, 2014

Oh these last few days have been kind of fun! I’ve decided to start having a theme for each week, now that Logan is getting bigger and understanding things. Plus it gives me a way to concentrate on specific things/activities rather than just being all over the place. For our first week [and since summer […]

Logan: 16 and 17 Months

September 10, 2014

Where has the last two months gone! I totally spaced doing Logan’s update last month. Well, I don’t even know where to begin honestly! This kid has turned into a tiny tornado right before my eyes. Logan has easily claimed his independence and is suddenly determined to do everything on his own. He can climb […]

Grandparents’ Day Craft

September 9, 2014

I wanted to post these earlier, but my family reads my blog, so I didn’t want to spoil the surprise crafts we made for Grandparents’ Day. I’m a sucker for anything with handprints and love that it captures a size that Logan will never be again. Something about seeing that little handprint in 20 years […]

Happy Grandparents’ Day

September 7, 2014

Why this day isn’t promoted or celebrated as much as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, I have no idea. But, to me, it’s a big holiday. Not only to celebrate my grandparents, but to celebrate Logan’s Grandparents, and all that they have done, do, and will do for us. My Grandad is the only one […]

Crockpot Skinny Chicken Pot Pie

September 4, 2014

I swear I saw some yellow leaves on the tree the other day. For some reason, I’m much more of a crockpot user when it’s cooler outside. I guess because I think of the crockpot making a warm, hot meal, that just never really sounds appealing during the middle of the summer. But geez…since Halloween […]
