Love this!!! I am always looking for healthy, yummy snacks to try.

This post has inspired me to try and make beet chips with all the beets i am getting from my CSA!

The Crunchy Journal

Kale ChipsI have fallen into the kale chip craze, and I may need a rehabilitation program to get over how amazing this snack is. I wasn’t sure if I would be a fan of the crispy version of the bitter “super food,” so I journeyed to my local grocery store to purvey their selection of kale chips.

One brand was a curry flavor and did not look appetizing. Next, I found a vegan cheese version called Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale Chips. This one looked yummy, plus they were on sale, so those came home with me. As I was cooking dinner that night, I popped open the box and started munching on these leafy chips … and to my surprise, they were delicious! I was surprised by the flavor and how addicting they were. I nearly ate the entire box while making dinner!

While I was impressed with this crispy delights, I was not impressed…

Hi Everyone!!!!

I have had two great weekends in a row!!!

The 10th, 11th, and 12th my friend came in from out of town to visit before I move (ill post about that later) and it was sooo good to see her! I hadn’t seen her since our graduation, which was May of 2013.

Thursday night we stayed up talking and catching up until 2 am!!! (11pm is now a late night for me hahahaha). Friday i got us up at 5:30am to go to crossfit, then we went for a 4 mile walk in the park.

We took the MAX into Portland where i showed her my favorite place: Powell’s Books. This is a book nerd’s heaven on earth, we even went into the rare book room!!!!!! We got voodoo donuts which is a Portland must, not that i really understand the craze, they are just donuts.

Saturday Morning we watched movies and said goodbye, she had to get home by early to work a double on Sunday.

 

Then this past weekend Brandy and i went to the coast on a trip i won at the company Christmas Party……omg it was sooo nice!!

its blurry but i dressed up a smidge for dinner……then stuffed my face with a pound of Alaskan King crab legs 🙂

we hit brunch Sunday morning and stuffed ourselves again then drove home.

All in all both weekends were great, there is something renewing and good for the soul about spending time with great friends.

True friends are like family, you may have your ups and downs and good times and bad, but once they are in your life, they are in your life forever.

 

Have you done something fun with your friends lately?

Cross Fit!!!

Hi Everyone!!

 

Let’s talk about cross fit. Now cross fit is one of these new exercises that have become controversial. I think cross fit is controversial because you can end up lifting large amounts of weight way too soon and injuring yourself. I think this is very subjective to the gym you attend. I am so happy that Brandy and i have found a gym that really cares about its people. It is CrossFit Boones Ferry.  These amazing trainers have eased Brandy and i into this great new way of working out. They limit the amount of weight we work with, the time we work out and how many reps we do. They even Facebook message us to check up on us and see how we are doing. They are an amazing and caring group of people and i am going to miss them so much when i move back to Nevada. But you can bet ill still be doing their WOD (workout of the day).

I feel like such a badass during and after a crossfit class…..well, ok i fell a bit like i am dying but i still feel like an almost dead bad ass hahaha. I think if you find the right gym with the right people you can love cross fit like i do and do it in a safe way.

You post your times and/or reps on the white board. No it is not a competition and no one makes you feel bad or makes fun of you if you come in last (i should know hahaha) it is a way to keep track of your accomplishments, because every workout is an accomplishment 🙂

Have you tried cross fit?

If so do you like it? Why or why not?
