in Food, What I Ate Wednesday

Just two more WIAW posts until I say I DO! Ahhhhhhh! It is getting real folks, real!
Eric and I even went and got our marriage license the other day!
Oh wait, that’s right… back to the food!

Thank you to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for the link-up!

: Strawberry, Banana and Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal. I had this same thing last week but I changed the recipe up this week a little! I loved this meal so much I HAD to make it again! It is those peanut butter chips, I tell ya!


: Strawberries. I have some left over strawberries again so I cut them up to snack on and added some splenda.

: Salad, salad, salad.

Snack: Greek Yogurt.

: Broccoli Slaw with Peanut Sauce. Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean (who is now pregnant, yay! Check out her adorable CrossFit inspired announcement!) posted this recipe last week. I instantly pinned it and wrote down the ingredients to make this week! I also ate a microwave grilled cheese on the side.

Now its your turn: Do you have a meal that you can make every week? How many days a week do you eat Greek Yogurt?


Tone It UP Tuesday 4.15.14

in Tone It Up Tuesday, Workouts

I know I have been slacking on posting my workouts ever since the CrossFit Open finished up. Honestly, it is because we have been extremely busy with wedding planning/meetings during the week that my rest days have been 2-3 days a week and the weekends have been busy and I don’t have time to type it up. No worries though, it will be back eventually!!!

Last week my workout schedule looked like this:
Monday- Dance Lessons (Rest Day)
Tuesday- 20 minute Interval Run, Tribesport Core Challenge Workout and CrossFit
Wednesday- Rest Day
Thursday-  CrossFit
Friday- CrossFit
Saturday- 3 mile run, CrossFit
Sunday- Rest Day

Hopefully I can get in 6 workouts (3 of them being running/CrossFit) this week!

If you are looking for a workout to do this week, I have you covered.

tiut 4.15.14
You first start on the left hand side and do 2 rounds of Jump Squats (or prisoner squats with a plate), Burpees, Box Jumps (or step ups), Burpees and Mountain Climbers.

Then, since summer is on its way you can never do enough ab work. You will do 20 seconds on/10 seconds off of each workout for a total of two minutes before moving onto the next workout.

Your abs will be burning! Trust me! So what are you waiting for?

Now its your turn: What is your favorite workout from above? What have your workouts looked like lately?


Spring CrossFit Gear Musts

by Danielle @ Itsaharleyyylife on April 14, 2014

in CrossFit

I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies I am about to list. I just wish I owned all of this clothing.

I love CrossFit gear, especially Reebok! Surprise, surprise! With another season on it’s way it is time to buy some extra workout gear (whatever excuse I can find, right?). Here are some things I have my eye on.

crossfit open 
Her 2014 Reebok CrossFit Open Tank: What better way is there to celebrate the CrossFit Open? This tank is super cute!

better than yesterday
THE BOX! Better than Yesterday! Tank: I need to wear a tank to workout in. Short sleeve shirts bother me. This one is super cute! Love the back!

puma pants 
Puma Tech Performance 3/4 Tights: I actually have some Puma capris and love them! The fit is perfect.

Reebok Lifters: I decided I’d treat myself to some lifters for finishing the CrossFit Open. I’m waiting for Reebok to get some more in my size though. I don’t want to buy customized ones even though I made those cute ones that you see above! Lifters help with certain lifts that I struggle with (overhead squats).

and for fun…

chalk print shorts 
Chalk Print Compression Shorts: How fun are these? This is pretty much how all of my clothing looks after a workout anyways.

Now its your turn: What is your spring/summer gear must have? Can you workout in short sleeves or do you need a tank? What are your favorite lifters?


10 Things Friday 4.11.14

10 Things Friday 1. Every Friday for the past month or so I scheduled to have a Wedding Friday post on my blogging calendar but I can never think of anything to write about. So 10 Things Friday is what ya’ll get! The countdown is now 23 days though!

2. Eric and I got our third round (yes, 3 times) of engagement pictures. Some of them are very awkward but I do love this one. I feel like I look grown up!

3. My bachelorette party is this weekend (I’ll have something to write about for next Wedding Friday). It is a surprise so I don’t know what is going on to tell you guys but I’m sure if you follow me on instagram you will get some pretty good pictures this weekend!

4. We had a million wedding errands this week (dance lessons on Monday and the caterer and wedding location on Wednesday). It really messed up my workouts this week. Extra rest days it is! One positive thing came out of it all though…

5. I got to eat Chipotle! YUMMY! Give me a bowl of yummy goodness! We don’t have a Chipotle near us YET (it is being built) so whenever we go do wedding stuff in the next county over I make sure I stop!

6. The doggies will officially be in the wedding! I’m so excited. This is probably the best/worst decision I ever had!

7. I’ve been digging the Americano’s lately at Starbucks. I don’t know what took me so long to try it but I get some caramel syrup in it and BOOM, delicious! I paired it with a cookie on Thursday when I had my coffee date with my bestie!

8. This past weekend I went to paint pottery with Lynda and Steph. I ended up painting a big mug (my favorite kind) and a cute little doggy (Harleyyybear) that hangs on the side! I can’t wait to see the final product!

The Core Challenge 
9. If you didn’t do this Tribesports workout yet, you should plan to do it this weekend! My abs were hurting for two days after I did it on Tuesday! Love!


10. To end this Wedding Friday (Hey, 6 of these were wedding related) / 10 Things Friday post I share with you a Hunter picture. That is a toy but we made it a hat. He obviously was enjoying it!

Now its your turn: What did you do for your bachelorette party? What do you have planned for this weekend?
