Fitness Friday Online Workouts

March 13, 2015

Online workouts have been a treat this week! With Scott out of town I knew I still needed to get workouts in and my family room was perfect for them. With unseasonably warm weather this week I have loved taking the dogs for a 30+ minute walk each day. They were incredibly excited to be […]

Tabata Thursday

March 12, 2015

Scott is out of town this week and I am back to working out at home. It works best time wise and I know I can still get a butt kicking workout in. DVD’s, YouTube, Beachbody’s new On Demand option and one of my favorites: a little living room tabata set. 20 seconds on, 10 seconds […]

Cardamom Roast Chicken

March 10, 2015

I can not sing the praises of cooking a whole chicken enough. You may think it’s intimidating but I promise it’s not! Scott made this dish all by himself. He will gladly help me in the kitchen but isn’t one to make entire meals by himself. The flavors on this are incredible and the leftovers […]

March 9, 2015

Spring. It’s a taboo thing to say in March but we hit 45 degrees today. Bright sunny 45 degrees. It was wonderful! We still have a bit of snow on the ground, but with temperatures supposed to hit the mid 50’s that will all be gone this week. You may see me dancing in the […]

Fitness Friday: When Workouts Don’t Happen

March 6, 2015

This was a week of life interrupting workouts. I was travelling for work and we had jam packed days. No time = no workouts. Such is life! I didn’t beat myself up over it or throw a fit. Instead I just went with it. As soon as I got home last night I changed into […]

Thursday Thoughts Capris, Snacks and an incredible Laptop

March 5, 2015

A few things that have been on my mind and have been loving the past month.   New workout clothes. A girl can never have too many workout clothes (although my husband may disagree). I’ve been an ambassador for Eleven by Venus for a little over a year and really love their clothes. They just […]

Wine Wednesday Van Ruiten Zinfandel

March 4, 2015

I am traveling for work this week but Scott and I had a chance to have a nice Sunday dinner with roast chicken, salad and this delicious zinfandel. This is a 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi and it was delicious!   A nice bite of pepper, deep berries and a smooth finish. And I […]

Greek Chicken with Orzo

March 3, 2015

Every time I think about our trip to Greece a few years ago I remember how incredible the food was. Delicious wine, feta cheese, amazing seasonings like oregano and all of the history. With my serious case of wanderlust I have so many places I want to see but we will visit Greece again! One of […]

Secret Recipe Club Nutella Brownies

March 2, 2015

Ah March. Usually the snowiest month in MN but since this has been the strangest winter ever I highly doubt that will happen. We have very little snow on the ground and it has been anywhere from -15 up to 35 within a week. My blog for the Secret Recipe Club this month, Cook Lisa […]
