Fave photo Friday!

Happy Friday! I'll be honest, I did NOT want to wake up this morning...I am the furthest away from being a morning person than anyone I know. I'm not grumpy but I just HATE waking up. The only things that make me happy in the A.M. are sunshine, coffee, and Ryan Reynolds. So you can imagine my excitment when I logged onto my facebook for my morning check and saw this on my newsfeed.....

Thank youuuu Krystle ;) Made my friday morning about a million times better! And it most definitely IS my favorie photo! -K

A few of my favorite treats!

Spring is here!!! You know what that means?! Yep. It's almost SUMMER, which means beach trips {bikini}, 100 degree weather {shorts and tanks}, country concerts {daisy dukes and boots}, weddings {dresses, dresses, dresses}, so what I'm trying to say is it's time for me to shed my 'winter layer' of FAT. Here are a few of my favorite healthy treats to snack on....

Frozen yogurt bites-
  • Put yogurt in a bag, cut the corner, make bitesize circles on wax paper
  • Let freeze over night
  • Enjoy!

  • Greek yogurt, agave nectar, & granola-
    Amazing, love it for breakfast!


  • Prevents Asthma
  • Prevents wheezing and coughing, especially in children
  • Protects our DNA from mutations
  • Provides a healthy amount of antioxidants and vitamins
  • Helps prevent colon cancer thanks to a high fiber content

  • Mangoes-

  • Phenols are presents in Mangoes, and this compound phenol has strong antioxidant and anticancer capacities.
  •  Mango Fruit are rich in iron, thus patients with anemia and pregnant women are advised to consume it regularly.
  • Eating mangoes helps in relieving congested pores of the skin.
  • Patients suffering from acidity and weak digestion can benefit from the consumption of mangoes.
  • It is a fruit which is low in carbohydrates and is an rich antioxidant.
  • The rich source of vitamin A (beta-carotene), E and Selenium present in Mangoes helps in protection from heart diseases and other problems.

Don't these look delicious?! I'm sure I'll find a ton more healthy snack options but for now these are my favorites! Also look out for some healthy dinner and salad recipes coming soon! Remember, healthy is the new skinny!- K

"No matter how slow you go, you are stll lapping everybody on the couch."

That's right. Time to get off the couch. Today I started training for the Mud Run I am doing on April 21 {#2 on my 23 before 23}, which means I WILL be running everyday after work. I took my gym bag to work with me, got off at 5, and changed into my running gear. My all time favorite place to run is at Lake Harveston in Temecula {also where I got married!!}. That is where I first started running "for fun" when we moved there in 2010. My immediate goal is to be able to run the 5k {3.1 miles} without stopping passing out. Today I ran 1.45 mi. and also did some push ups, burpees, sit-ups, and weight training, (I looked like a 5 yr old girl trying to push myself up haha!) but hey, you have to start somewhere! Here are a few photos from my GORGEOUS run....

       Took these on my big D, they are just awesome.

My goal after the Mud Run will be to do a half marathon this summer in Carlsbad! The words half marathon terrify me, but where there's a will...there's a way! Wish me luck! -K

Fave photo friday!

This week seems like a good week to start "Fave photo friday". I would explain it to you but I don't want to insult anyone, obviously you catch my drift by the name :)

This past weekend I had SUCH a fun time taking photos for Kenzie's 5th birthday. She is having a cowgirl/butterfly themed party and she came with the cutest outfits! These were the first photos Kenzie has had done since she was a newborn! Crazy huh?! But all you moms out there know how hectic life gets and how quickly it passes when you have a little one. I love the way this shoot turned out, here is my favorite...

I'm obsessed with her freckles! Think she gets them from me?? Lol LOVE HER! - K
