WIAW: Ask me anything!

[Have you entered my Nuzest protein powder giveaway yet?]

Hi friends! I just wanted to take a minute to remind you all that I am planning mega Q and A post sometime over the next few weeks so I am still taking questions from all of you! I’ve gotten a bunch so far and can’t wait to sit down and start answering. With that said, I’d love to get more from you all if you have them. So I am putting another ask box in this post for your to ask anything you!

Pumpkin Spice Protein Cookies [Nuzest Protein Giveaway!]

[WINNER of my Swanson Vitamins giveaway announced!! Check to see if it’s you!]

Ever since I broke my ‘bean baking’ virginity with these Ginger Spiced Bean cookies, I have been scratching my head looking for an opportunity to do some more experimenting. The texture that beans give a baked good is like none other. Dense, slightly cakey, and so yummy. Ever since making those cookies, I’ve been dying to experience that texture heaven again!

Link Love: February 2015

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

Happy Friday, friends! I wanted to give you all a little update and also make a request.

If you follow me on Instagram you may already know, but right now I am dealing with a weird injury. It’s only been diagnosed as inflammation under the kneecap but it’s causing me a lot of pain and fully restricting me from my normal exercise. For the next week I can’t do any lower body exercise whatsoever until I see my doctor again on Wednesday. It’s really frustrating and I know it’s probably my own fault from jumping back into running so quickly, but I really had no guidance or direction as to how much I should have been doing. I was cleared, felt good, and just so ready to get back into the things I love. But that was an error on my part and now I’m paying for it. So for the next little bit I’ll only be doing upper body and core stuff. If you have any fun workouts, send them my way! I need all the inspiration I can get. Thank you to everyone who has sent me well wishes so far. I can’t wait to remember what’s it’s like to not be in pain and just be able to walk normally.

How to Stay Active During the Winter

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

In the summer and spring I tend to stick to just a few different activities….mostly biking, walking, and running. I just love being outside, so I take my workout outdoors whenever possible. However, when it comes to winter, motivation can be lacking and the weather itself can actually stop you from being able to do your normal activity.

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

Half way through the week! YES. I am more than ready to head down that slope towards Friday. This weekend I am going to see Let It Be (a Beatles tribute show) with my parents for my dad’s birthday last month, so that is definitely giving me something to look forward too! With the lack of sun and brutal cold lately, you have to look extra hard for some things to smile about!
