I’ve been on the road a ton lately! My niece has had sports activities a few hours away, I’ve been helping my mom update a home she owns in Tennessee, and this has all led to 10+ hours in the car over a two or three day time span. I’ve been practicing my new intuitive, mindful eating principals (more on that another day), and I’ve been staying active by quick doing workouts in the evening or during downtime in the afternoon.

I was in Chicago recently and it was so much fun. We went to a few museums, tried some great restaurants, and got to walk around town – despite the kinda cold temps. One of my favorite parts is always hitting up the Magnificent Mile and all of the great shops that go with it…. H&M, F21, Zara, Coach, Free People, Lush….

Fall is here! Now, I’ve heard some people argue that fall doesn’t start yet, and for them that’s fine. But for me . . . well, fall started the moment September began! And what better way to pass the chilly fall nights than with fresh popped popcorn, a cozy blanket, and a new to you Netflix show? Continue reading “Favorite Shows to Netflix Binge”
I had planned to post either a new brownie recipe or my favorite go-to cookie recipe today as I was making both Saturday for different events, but I was having one of those days. You know those days where everything just seems to go wrong? It was one of those days.
First, the cookies I had made dozens of times spread (the first batch) and burnt (the second batch) and then the brownies came out looking great, but tasting so icky. After hours in the kitchen not working, I was sort of thankful when the cookout I was going to on Sunday got rained out. It gave me a chance to spend Sunday making different brownies for my work potluck on Monday.
Monday was supposed to be action packed after I got off work at one, but everything got rained out! I ended up spending the 4th curled up in bed with hot tea, a bowl of popcorn, Netflix, and a new book.
The latest season of Criminal Minds is on Netflix now, so I have been so focused on that.
I made sure to do a couple of my fun Netflix workouts in order to make my night in a little more productive! lol
I thought I’d share these workouts with you! I did arms and a small at home cardio workout.
I am obsessed with Supernatural.
Jared, Jensen, and Misha are too cute. I used to be terrified of any show that had anything remotely scary. That is, until I saw The Woman in Black with Daniel Radcliffe. I made my friends go see if with me because I love Radcliffe. Once I sat through that suspense, I knew I could take on Supernatural. One Netflix binge later and I was hooked.
Since becoming a verified Netflix binger, I have had to come up with ways to stay active while still getting in my episodes. Sure, sometimes I pile on the blankets and hideaway, but usually I try to fit in a quick home workout after each episode.
It’s super easy – just make little tally marks next to each item when it happens, hit pause between each episode, and get your short workout in. I thought since I have been doing these almost daily lately, that I would share my favorite one with y’all.
