Having Fun in Kansas!

After crashing in bed and a good nights sleep – several of us got up at 7am to get ready for a 5 mile run.

I had a tsp of pb before heading out the door…

*About 5 HILLY miles with my hubby, Lexy, and Kamie’s sister Kelby.  My hubby and I did some sprints, lunges, butt kicks, and skips on the way back.

Lexy made up a big batch of protein waffles for us all – 5pts+


after visiting with everyone for a while it was time to shower and get ready to head out for some shopping. I had a Zonebar while getting dressed to tide me over.  -5pts+


Our first stop was a late lunch at one of our fav places – Chipotle! I had the salad with barbacoa, peppers & onions, green tomatillo salsa, and pico with a side of guacamole – 7pts+

The whole gang eating lunch  (I just love this pic cause Courtney is the one taking it – haha!) 😉

another view :)


We got to finally meet Sydney!!!!  She is married to Tyson, one of Torry & Courtney’s cousin and she has an awesome blog at The Daybook   that we FLF girls follow!!!  She is just as cute and sweet in person!!! 😉


Torry, Tyson, and Courtney

Lexy, Sydney, and me 😉



of course we had to have some Fro Yo on the way out!!!! I had Chocolate Trifecta with mini chocolate chips and strawberries – a Hungry Girl tip I heard on her show the other day!



We snapped a cute picture with cousin Jade – she is pregnant and having a baby girl this time!! So excited for her!

After the wedding rehearsal we all headed to an awesome little Bistro restaurant for a family dinner

salad with a sesame vinegarette dressing


I had a piece of champagne chicken, serving of salmon, potatoes, cooked carrots, and half my roll.


me and my honey :)


dessert was an AMAZINGly YUMMY triple layer chocolate cake!!!! It was sooooo good!!


tried one bite of Courtney’s carrot cake – YUM!!!!


we all came home and changed right into our PJ’s to get comfy and hang out. We all sat around laughing, joking, and talking and somehow the conversation turned to giving Dayne marriage advice and tips and EVERYONE chimed in and had something to say!!!!  It was crazy fun!!!!

I had a leftover chocolate cupcake – YUM!!!

Gotta hit the sack for a few hours of sleep before my alarm goes off for another hilly run in the AM. :)

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
