My Husband: The Rockstar

If you know Ryder, you know that he is such a hard worker and strives to be the best version of himself, all of the time. He is such a talented & passionate person. He LOVES the sport of triathlon & is always doing everything he can to improve himself. Whether its's riding his bike outside in 30 degrees weather (then thawing out painfully afterwards) or waking up at 4am to get his workout in.. I admire him so, so much!

Ryder applied to be an ambassador for an awesome company, Base Performance. They offer supplements for triathletes, cyclists, etc. Ryder is officially an ambassador for them! I'm so proud of him.

Check out Ryder's bio on their website & also check out their products.

Happy Weekend!

  • 2 ripe bananas (slice & dice into small pieces)

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. To make oat flour: place oats in food processor & process until very fine. 
  3. Whisk together all ingredients.
  4. Grease a muffin tin or put in cupcake liners. Makes 12 muffins.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes. 
Enjoy! :) Let me know if you try the recipe out!

Weekend in review..

This weekend was great! My parents came to visit us & we got to show them around our new 'stomping grounds'. On Saturday the sun was out & you didn't even need to wear a jacket. It was so refreshing! We took them to Oklahoma City to Bricktown to site see & eat dinner. (BBQ never ceases to disappoint us.) It's always nice to recharge & have a good visit with family. Now on to laundry & other fun adult stuff. :)

Have a great week!

Here are a few pictures of the weekend..

Inspirational is one of the many characteristics I could use to describe Killer Boobies. This blog is written by a woman that is battling breast cancer. Reading her blog has certainly made me appreciate my health & life in general. She was a normal, healthy, exercising 25 year old. Yes, TWENTY FIVE. Her blog is brutally honest, but also comical. It's easy to think that something like cancer couldn't happen to us, but unfortunately no one is exempt from the terrible possibility. If you get a chance, check her blog out. You won't regret it!

Fitness Monday

Health & Fitness is a huge part of me & Ryder's lives. It's become something that is just so part of our every day, that it's just habit now. Ryder has several triathlons scheduled for 2013. I have a half marathon coming up & also a full marathon in the fall. I will add another race or two in between those.

This is a bit of what my exercise looked like last week..

M: bike 1 hr
T: run 45 minutes & yoga 30 minutes
W: bike 30 minutes & strength
T: swim 45 minutes & run 45 minutes
F: yoga
S: run 20 minutes
S: 1 hr bike

I encourage you to get moving! You don't have to run a marathon to make a difference in your health.. Just move! Happy Monday!

It's Friday!

Oh, Fridays are just always so good. I even remember loving Fridays as a kid. Something about my hubby coming home & knowing that nothing but fun awaits us! I've been cleaning today & just made some oatmeal cookies for a special, healthy weekend treat! It will be a pretty low key evening, just the way we like it.. Watch a movie & cooking at home. Perfect after a long week. However, Saturday night is going to be date night! Can't wait.

What does your Friday night look like?

Feels like spring

I forget every year how refreshing something as a springtime day can be.
Sun shining, clouds spreading, wind in my hair, & having no cares.
Winter is so beautiful, but it has a way of making your head cloudy.
When the sun finally comes out, it makes you forget what you were ever even worried about.

Second Wind Coffee House

The hubby & I LOVE, LOVE coffee. We also love trying out new coffee shops. We ran across a really neat place called Second Wind Coffee House. It's super trendy, but best of all it's for a great cause. They are a nonprofit coffeehouse from First Presbyterian Church of Norman that is staffed by volunteers. There aren't prices, you choose the amount you want to donate. They support charities, local artists, & the community of Norman. We loved the coffee & admired what a cool cause it was all for. So many great people out there that put others first; it's awesome! So if you are ever in the area, check it out! You won't regret it.
