Five: A Random Blog Survey

5: A Random Blog Survey |

If you’ve read HFM for any length of time, you know that I love a random blog survey. I saw this on Julie’s blog recently and had to play along. That and I had a crazy marvelous weekend, full of writing deadlines, activities and having fun. This is about all I could muster enough brain strength for.

What better way to beat the Monday blah’s than with randomness, right?

Meal Planning {Week of February 7}

What's for dinner the week of February 7

Hey there!

Happy Meal Planning Sunday! Happy Sunday Runday! Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Am I forgetting anything?

Remember on Friday when I wished we had some snow to enjoy snowshoeing, snowboarding/skiing and sledding? Well we got 10 inches on Friday. And we’ve done ALL of that. In fact, by the time you read this, we’ll be snowboarding/skiing. My kids are doing a weekly ski school till Mid March so our Sunday’s will be spent at the mountain. Send me all the good vibes that you can – I’m a chaperone this week!

The beauty of the freshly fallen snow is insane. I think I’ve exclaimed “It’s so pretty!” at least 5000 times in the past 36 hours. This is what winter should be like.

Enough chit chat – What’s for dinner this week?

Sunday: Super Bowl food – Baked Broccoli Slaw Rolls + Buffalo Cauliflower Bites –

A great recipe for a healthy version of a favorite take out food - Baked Broccoli Slaw Egg Rolls

Monday: Mega Egg and Veggie Bowls

Tuesday: Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

Wednesday: Thai Cashew Coconut Rice w/ Ginger Peanut Sauce

Thursday: Roasted Whole Chicken + Veggies

Friday: Homemade Pizza Night

Saturday: Two Bean Veggie Chili Cornbread Bake

High Five Friday

High 5 Friday February 5 2016

Happy High Five Friday!

It’s time to spread GOOD news. Want to get in on the fun? Find all the details HERE.

5 from Instagram

1. I am. Two words that can set the tone for your mood. On this run, I was happy, strong and confident. I’m taking my comeback slow and easy and it’s paying off!

2. What a difference a year makes…we had SO much snow! And that meant more snowshoe play.

3. Plank rows = killer workout.

4. Who knew Spider-Man was a yogi? He must have read my post from Wednesday.

5. Bare roads, sunshine and warm temps in February. So weird! But I’ll take it. Snow and cold will be here one day…right?

5 Things

1. Life Lesson Written by a 90 Year old Woman – Listen to your elders.

2. Just Eat the Fries – YES! YES! YES! Ditch restrictive eating, diets and eat intuitively.

3. When Exercise Isn’t Your Favorite – I know not everyone LOVES to exercise. Kate feels you on this one. Skip the guilt workout and find out what works for her. Maybe you’ll love it just a teeny bit more.

4. Thankful for My Running Shoes – I love this post from a former Girls on the Run participant – encouragement, confidence, passion – the foundation for building a strong girl for life.

5. Snowshoeing with Kids – Shameless plug for my latest article for Kuhl!
