I only worked out twice this week! I started a new fitness program and I pushed it a little too hard. I tweaked my knee, taped it Tuesday evening. It’s still a little funky but its doing much better. Wednesday I took the tape off my knee and then taped my calf.

I was sort of a hot mess. I did an arm workout on Thursday then didn’t work out again the rest of the week. So happy Monday and I am starting from the beginning again! But I won’t go crazy tonight and reinjur my knee and calf.

How was your week?

My blueberry mixture turned out more like blueberry cookie dough, maybe because I used 1/3 butter and 2/3 crisco (I ran out of butter) so instead of mini loaf pans I stuck it in a shallow rectangle pan and make them slightly healthier cookies. Heat them up later with some ice cream!!!

I also bought a cantaloupe and cut that up for snacks this week.

Did you food prep this week?

This was a harder week for me, for whatever reason I was EXHAUSTED this week. Everyday was a struggle and I ended up working out 4 out of 7 days. Not my best week but I will take it. I still worked out more days than I didn’t.

Tired after my workout.


New favorite!!!! Chocolate shakology, frozen strawberries, milk, a smidge of sugar free vanilla creamer, a little coffee (in my life there is no such thing as too much coffee) and some water to thin it out…..tastes like a chocolate milkshake!!!! Soooooo good!!!!

Arm muscles are slowly coming along!

In case I didn’t mention it, I’m down 6 lbs so far!!

Did you workout this week?

Weeds and the organic garden

This isn’t about weeds or a garden but I finally hung up a wind chime that I bought at some swap meet on a family camping trip…..14 years ago!!!! I kid you not, it was wrapped in a newspaper from 2004.

Peas !!!!! So excited to start eating some sugar snap peas!

Hanging basket from Costco, I’m pretty happy with it. It’s really pretty.

Ok so weeds, I let Brandon spray some of the yard when we started on the yard but not the majority of it. I didn’t want a bunch of pesticides in the ground right before we planted crops. And of course we aren’t spraying the plants now so we inevitably get weeds.

I let them get a little ahead of me in the beginning which i won’t do next year but now everyday when I water i spend about 15-20 minutes weeding one area of the garden. It’s not much time and I just pick out what I can see or easily get to. There are always still weeds left and sometimes I look back where I was just weeding and swear there is a weed in the exact spot I already pulled one but i also love those few quiet moments in the garden.

Basically if you dont use anything to kill the weeds there will always be weeds, don’t stress too much about it. Make sure your plants have room to grow and their roots have room to grow and don’t worry too much about the rest. Just do what you can.

Do you have a garden?

What are you growing?
