Wednesday Stuff.


Some days when I sit down to blog, and I realize I did not take one picture of anything spectacular. You know, like food or swass. Weird right? But, how impressive is my oatmeal every morning for the next 10 weeks looking?


This is pretty much my pre-workout meal everyday!

  • 1/4 C. Gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of berries
  • Cinnamon ( I love cinnamon, so I sprinkle it on like mad.)
  • Few drops of Liquid Stevia

I microwave my oats with a little bit of water and the egg, for about 1:30 until the egg is fully cooked, then mix everything else in!

I did snap a pic of my workout today though for you all!

This was sweaty one and my hip flexors are now stronger then my traps.


The timer was set for 2 minutes, as soon as the buzzer went off we sprint 200m outside, through gnats and then come inside do 5 burpees and squat until the 2 minutes is up! – Rest ONE minute then did it again, 9 more times.


Some people had some pretty impressive squat numbers today! I tried SO hard to break 50 but alas. NO can do with these long legs. But I really tried to focus on making sure to drop below parallel each time. Also, there were 4 “Candice's” at the gym today..Pretty stellar.  I’m “Cand” on the board.

After the last class tonight a few of us did 50 more burpees to make it 100 for the day to prep for the BURPEE MILE in two weeks. If you are local, please make an effort to come out to this and support “no more victims.” A little bird told me there is going to be a bounce house and some free swag for all who attend. --- In the words of NIKE,—JUST DO IT.

I coached a few classes today at GPP and I must say, there are some inspiring folk around. I love sharing my passion with them and watching them achieve their goals by watching them WORK for them! I love my job.

Alright, now I have big news for you all.

Especially, my pinterest peeps.

I got the latest and greatest right here.

Its JUST like pinterest but a food blogger, food lovers dream.

Because it is ALL about FOOD!

It is YUMMLY! --- (Whoever made that name up wasn’t thinking straight…)


But regardless of the weird name of the site, it is pretty legit.

When you sign up – It’s free!

It asks what your preferences are, what you like/dislike, allergies, Vegetarian, Vegan, Meat-lover, soy-free, wheat-free etc.etc. and filters the recipes to your craving. Pretty sweet!

Now I can pin (or should I say yum?) a million recipes I probably will never make.. except for the quick and easy ones that use minimal ingredients and take less then 10 minutes. Is there a filter for that?

Yes, I am a food blogger…..

with kids.

Hope you guys had a great day! We are half way through the week! Brent and I made a pretty big purchase today, that I am stoked about.. more details to follow!Winking smile

Question of the day:

What do you think about Yummly? Be my friend?

What do you eat pre-workout? If anything?

If you would name a website about food… what would you name it? (Yummly, is taken….)


  1. Why do you eat gluten free

  2. I'm proud to be one of the Candices - and that's me right under your stats. I was super strict on my squats because you have called me out on those before :) Thanks Coach!

  3. I love Pinterest and totally checking out Yummly, thanks for sharing! I don't eat anything specific pre-workout since my workouts are all different times- before or after work, in the afternoon, etc. but I try to make sure that my belly is full of something to keep me fueled :)
