Weekend Recap

It's been a while since I've done a weekend recap, because, well, winters are boring!! This was the first weekend we've had in a long time where we were able to finally get outside and enjoy some amazing weather. It was much needed!!

Saturday was our anniversary, so we went out to dinner that night after church.
We went to our fave- Cheddars! Cuz we're just so fancy like that! But I just absolutely love their chicken dijon dish-it's soooo good.

There's my cute date! I love this man! So lucky to have him.

I'm so thankful for the marriage we have. It's not always rainbows and butterflies, but most of the time, it's pretty darn good. I couldn't be happier with the life that we have. So blessed and thankful!

I couldn't not share the dessert we had. We even ordered two-there is no sharing desserts with us! This has always been a fave of mine-the famous monster cookie! I hadn't had it in so long! It's a fresh baked giant chocolate chip cookie topped with ice cream, fudge, and whipped cream.
Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day! 65 and sunny. It was so nice to get out and feel the sun on my skin again! We went for a nice family walk that morning.

Look at those blue skies! Not a cloud in sight.

Later we went to a local park to throw some football and just enjoy the warm sunshine. It was wonderful.
 Sunday night we cooked up chicken thighs for dinner with some corn and a big salad-yes, I was actually craving a salad! Also cooked up a bunch of chicken breasts for the week. I love grilling season!!  

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Hi there, Just curious, how can you eat that way and stay so lean?? Clearly, you probably don't eat that way every day but I am wondering doing you use IF as tool so you can eat large meals like the one you posted above (large dinner and large dessert)? I am sorry if this comes across as weird, but I am looking for a blog to follow that has a weight lifting focus that is not diet restrictive (paleo, bodybuilding.com) and where the female blogging has a nice physique (some of the females that blog about weight lifting and do not focus on restricting food do not have attractive physiques, imo). I am trying to get away from restrictive eating but achieve a nice physique at the same time. Thanks for any info you might have! -Andria

    1. Well because what it comes down to is that you're not consuming more calories on a daily basis than you burn. Although I don't track, I do know that I'm eating maintanence calories throughout the week, and one day of a treat meal/off plan/cheat meal doesn't negatively affect me. I cut back slightly on calories the next day but definitely not anything restrictive. Just slightly lower carbs. It all balances out! I eat 30-40 healthy meals through the week so one high calorie, "bad" meal doesn't hurt me. Not everyone can do this but from years of lifting weights and partly genetics, I have a very good metabolism. Not sure what you mean by IF? If that's intermittent fasting, no, I have never tried that. On a day where I am going to have a big meal like that I may just slightly cut back on my meals earlier in the day, that's it. Hope this helps!

    2. Also, read some of my previous posts, as I have addressed my "treat meal" philosophy. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me.
