Be My Valentine

Happy Feb. 1!

Valentine's Day is 14 days away! Are you ready? My husband and I typically don't exchange gifts. Instead we do something active outside and cook a nice meal at home. No, I don't know what I'm making yet. I've actually been on the hunt for tasty Paleo desserts. Any suggestions?

Anyway, if we were to exchange gifts I pulled together a few things I wouldn't mind the hubby surprising me with. Just going to say it -- this is a pretty random list, but of course it's not complete without a few workout items.

Valentine's day




Yup, random list -- but I think I covered all the bases. Personally I could do without chocolates and would prefer a plant verse flowers. However, that's just me and I might just gift myself a new pair of leggings and a book just because.

What are your plans for Valentine's Day?

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Bar Review

Through my ambassadorship with FitApproach, I was given the opportunity to review Manitoba Harvest’s new Hemp Heart Bars. This post was sponsored by Manitoba Harvest and Fit Approach. As always opinions 100% my own.

I don't know about you, but I'm picky when it comes to protein bars. So whenever I have a chance to taste test a new bar I'll jump at the chance. I've had some bad ones, but then I'm had some good ones. Recently I tested out Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heat Bars - vanilla, chocolate and apple cinnamon.

I was pleasantly surprised. I had Hemp Hearts before, but I have to be in the mood. So I wan't sure what to think when I first heard about the Hemp Heart Bars.


I tried the above three flavors and while they all tasted fine, Apple Cinnamon was my favorite. Hemp just pairs nicely with fruit [IMO]. This was surprise as I thought it would be my least favorite flavor. Chocolate was a fast second. I could live without the vanilla, but then I'm more a fruit, nut  and chocolate kind of gal. Plus, there's no gross protein powder like taste like some bars have. Give it up for natural ingredients!

About Hemp Heart Bars:Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart bars are crafted with the goodness of hemp and other tasty ingredients too. They’ve whipped up three different delicious flavours to choose from: vanilla, chocolate and apple cinnamon. Each 45 gram bar contains 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of omegas, so whether you grab one for a pre-workout snack or nutrition on the go, these convenient bars are sure to get you through even your busiest day!

Of course, I gave it a Tahoe adventure test. I don't leave home without some type or bar. You never know when you'll need a snack. For instance, the other day while I was snowboarding. I didn't want to stop for lunch, but I needed a little something. The Hemp Heart Bar kept me satisfied for a few hours.

Monster Cookie Bites + #MakeItAMovieNight

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MakeItAMovieNight #CollectiveBias


So here's the thing since having Emerson Nick and I haven't have a date night out in a long time. Instead we typically opt for a date night in. There are a few reasons for this, one we're saving money [hello kitchen remodel and baby in the NICU] and two I'm a great cook [IMO]. Plus, if we're going to hire a sitter we would rather go on a day date [i.e., snowboarding, long hike, mountain biking, etc.]. With that said, this past Saturday we had a date night in. Think movie, delicious eats, sweet treat and popcorn. 

While running errands Saturday I managed to swing by Walmart for all the key essentials: Orville Redenbacher 6 pack Movie Theater Popcorn, MARS Milk Chocolate and Peanut M&M’S® Chocolate Candies and Sprite.

DEAL ALERT:
Get a $10 Vudu movie code by email [While supplies last. Limit 1 per person.]
- Buy all 4 participating products mentioned above in one transaction at Walmart between 12/22/15 and 2/2/16.
- Snap a picture of your receipt and visit uploadreceipt.com/movienight to submit your receipt by 2/9/16 


To say the hubby was pleased, I brought home treats, would be an understatement Since I've had him eating 100% paleo for the last week he was happy to have a little treat. Originally I was planning to make caramel popcorn, but last week got the best of me so I turned to a no bake treat! Plus, I was looking to make something a bit 'healthier' and filling. Since I love date protein bites I made no bake monster cookie bites! Yup, a play on the very popular Monster Cookies. Please note: monster cookies and bites are not paleo.


You're probably asking, "What about the movie?" Well we channeled are youth and watched Goosebumps! Yes, enter "you know you were a child of the '80s if you..." I can't wait until Emerson is old enough to read Goosebumps!

Be sure to check out other movie night ideas here and don't forget to take advantage of the VUDU offer!

Now for the real good stuff, Monster Cookie Bites! Warning they are a bit addictive.


Monster Cookie Bites
makes 12

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup creamy almond butter [or any nut butter really]
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup Milk Chocolate M&M’S® Chocolate Candies
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix until everything is combined and chocolate pieces are coated with wet ingredients.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Gently roll mixture into small balls [about 1 inch round].

Place bites on a cookie sheet. Place in fridge for about 10 or until the bites have firmed up a bit.

To store: Place bites in airtight ziplock bag and place in refrigerator or freezer. I suggest making a double batch and freezing half for later.

Enjoy!

P.S. Anyone's dog love popcorn? Roxy dog does. Check her creeping in the background. She's just waiting for me to leave so she can get down on some popcorn. #nodice


Wild + One Birthday Ideas



Emerson is turning one on Friday! Needless to say I'm in full planning mode. Her invitations went out a few weeks ago, but I still need to pull the rest of the party details together. We're going with a wild one 'woodland' themed party.

The plan is to keep it minimal and modern. I mean she's only turning one. Think burlap, wood rounds, fun treats and some pink and mint.

Above pretty much sums up what I'm thinking -- various photos form the year. homemade cake, small bites, a cute crown or highchair banner, wild one print outs and a treat for later.... just to mention a few.

As for her outfit [because my sister is concerned] she'll be rocking something sassy. A fur vest might even be involved. Either way I love how timeless the chambray dress and moccasins look.

Regarding her birthday gift we splurged and bought her a new carseat as her birthday/christmas gift. We're practical parents/people. However, we'll probably purchase a couple of new board books and contribute money to her college fund. Yes, girlfriend already as a college fund. It's never too early to start saving!

It's all coming together and we can't wait to celebrate ONE year!

BOOKS ON HER LIST:

Baby Gear | 9-12 Month Favorites

Baby Gear - 9-12 Month Favorites
Oh my goodness, Emerson turns one in nine days! I really don't know where the last year went. Her birthday party is set and I've mailed the invites, but it might be time to start working on party details. Until then lets chat about a few items we've loved over the last three months.

PBK My First Anywhere Chair [$89] - I've mentioned this chair before, but Emerson just loves this chair. In the last month she finally learned how to sit in it on her own. Oh and she can get out of it safely.

Plum Organics Super Puffs [ $21, 8pk] - Girlfriend would rather feed herself. When we're on the go or she just needs a little something these are a lifesaver. We've tried other brands, but the Plum Organics Puffs don't upset her tummy like other brands. We also like their pouches as well as Earth's Best and Ella's Kitchen.

Columbia Fleece Bunting [$26 on sale] - We love our bunting suits! This suit is perfect for fall, winter and early spring walks. We even have this down suit for snowy days.

Books - Emerson LOVES being read too. During the day if I'm sitting on the floor she'll bring a book over and sit in my lap. It's the cutest thing ever. We're Going on a Bear Hunt [$6] is a household favorite.

VTech Busy Learners Activity Cube [$15 on sale] - Emerson has a lot of toys, but typically pulls the same toys out of her basket. This cube provides hours of entertainment and learning.

VTech Touch and Swipe Baby Phone [$14 on sale] - Girlfriend always wants to play with our phone, but now she has her own. On a side note, Emerson seems to really like her VTech toys.

Fisher-Price SnugaMonkey [$37] - Emerson absolutely LOVES this baby. It was a Christmas gift from Santa [aka Auntie Brittnay] and she's been carrying it around the house ever since. It's a sleepytime toy. When you push the stomach it glows and play soft tunes.

Nike Kids Free 5 (Infant/Toddler) [$48] - I picked up a pair for $13 at the Nike outlet! Baby shoes are just too cute.

Tommee Tippee Sippee Cup [$7, 2pk] - We've been introducing sippy cups over the last few months and Emerson seems to like these the best.

Burt's Bees 100% Natural Diaper Rash Ointment [$6 on sale] - Hands down the BEST baby butt cream.


What are your must have toddler items?

Ok, ok maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't. If you're looking to earn some extra cash you might want to start shopping with Ebates.

Over the last few years I've heard various bloggers swear by it and I thought, get paid to shop? Sounds to good to be true. You really do get paid to shop. Living in Tahoe I do most of my shopping online, thank you amazon prime! So I deiced to give it a shot.  I figured why not make a little extra cash to do something I am already doing.

Right before starting all my christmas shopping I made sure to sign up for Ebates. Before I knew it I earned $6 here and $.25 there. In the end it all adds up. Oh to top if off I received a $10 Target gift card after my first purchase just because I was using Ebates!

After a few shopping trips and friend referral I've earned $71.72! That's all free money to me. While it might not seem like much it just covered a week of groceries, month of gas or other bills.

Ebates

What is Ebates?
Ebates is a company that gives you cash back if you click through the links of the stores listed on their site.

The company is an affiliate 1,500+ online stores, like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Kohl’s, and Etc. What’s an affiliate? An affiliate is a person [or company, in this case] that makes a small commission for referring people to somewhere.

How to earn cash back?
Purchases you make at Ebates stores are only credited if you start your shopping session at Ebates.com or another Ebates service [like the Ebates toolbar] and click to a store via an Ebates link. I personally use the toolbar so I'm not missing out on any cash back. Ebates also searches for discount codes, helping you save even more.

Lurong Living 5 week Challenge

Nearly three years ago when I signed up for a 90-day challenge [one year later] I didn't realize how out of shape I was. Of course, I thought I was super healthy but numbers don't lie. Three years and a baby later I'm ready for another challenge. Although, I've lost all the baby weight my goal is to get the best body I can. We're going to Hawaii in four months, eek!

Let's start with some before photos. I don't know about you, but I love a good before and after photo!

I'm just rocking leggings and a sports bra, but I think it's a good before. Don't worry I snapped a few in my bikini for the final comparison. ;)


Stats
Weight: 130 lbs, (1/17) Although, the gym scale says 128 lbs ... I'm not sure I believe it.
Height: 5'3"
BMI: I really wish I knew. I'm going to see if I can find someone who knows how to measure BMI. This is what really matters.

Goals
-  Drop inches [I'm not worried about the number on the scale. Muscle weighs more than fat]
-  Get back to eating nearly 100% paleo/clean
-  Increase overall strength
-  CORE [enough said]

Eats
100% Paleo! Yup, no diary, grains or alcohol. I plan on recapping my meals so stay tune. Interested in what I'm eating? Leave a comment with your email.

Workouts
Crossfit and Spin... I don't count walking the dog or skiing/snowboarding as a 'workout.' The plan is to workout 7-8 times a week. This means there will be a few double days. How do I make this happen? Workouts usually happen before 7 a.m. If it's a double day I sneak in another after the hubby gets home from work. This also allows for a little one-on-one daddy daughter time. I think it's good for both of them.

There you have it -- another challenge. God, I love a good challenge. I'm an all or nothing person so I can't wait to see my after photos!

Stay tune! I plan on posting various updates, meals and tips along the way.

Convertible Car Seat Shopping Guide

It's amazing how fast kids go through gear. Emerson is almost a year and we're already upgrading to a convertible car seat. Our infant car seat was 30/30. While she's not 30 pounds, she's pushing 30 inches. For the most part we were happy with our Graco SnugRide® Click Connect™ 30 Infant Car Seat, but we're open to exploring different brands for the next car seat. Safety is top priority, but I also want something that will hold up over time.

Let me tell you there are a lot of options out there. After researching for weeks I finally made a decision! Before I reveal which car seat we purchased let's meet the top contenders.


Convertible Car Seat Shopping Guide

There are 100s of car seats to choose from, but only a few are top contenders [IMO]. I've narrowed it down to a few worth looking at. Once you get to this point it all comes down to personal preference,  the baby, style, price and car fit. If purchasing online I suggest Amazon or Diapers.com because of the awesome free shipping and return policies. For a limited time, save 15% on select Baby Products sold and shipped by Amazon with code 15OFFBABY!

The below car seats include the following key features:
5-point harness (two shoulder straps, two waist straps, and one strap between the legs that meet in the middle)
+ side-impact protection (extra foam or air pads at the side of baby's head)
+ compatibility with the LATCH system (a way to fasten the base tightly without using seatbelts)

CHICCO
Chicco NextFit [$299] - Available in grey, pink/black and burgundy/black.
Chicco NextFit CX [$329] - Available in grey.
Chicco NextFit [$349] - Available in four colors including black, blue and pink.

BRITAX
Britax Marathon G4.1 [$289/ currently $199] - Available in six colors/prints including  black, kiwi and pink giraffe.
Britax USA Marathon ClickTight [$329/ currently $264] - Available in five colors including red, grey and purple.

MAXI-COSI
Maxi Cosi Pria 70 [$274] - Available in 15 colors black, grey, tan red, pink and various prints.
Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 [$299] - Available in nine colors including  black, navy, grey, pink and teal.

GRACO
Graco Size4Me 65  [$179/ currently $169] - Available in six colors/prints including black, green and tan.
Graco 4ever All-in-One [$299] - Available in black, red, pink, and black/white stripped. Includes booster seat option. You'll never have to buy another car seat. Best bang for your buck.

OTHER
Diono Radian RXT [$289] - Available in six colors including black, red, tan, grey and purple.

Please note, there are a number of very safe optionss under $200, but I was in the market for something above just a basic car seat. [i.e., built-in cup holders, plush fabric, etc.]

We ended up purchasing the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 in Loyal Grey! We've only had it for a few days, but we love it.  It came down to the Graco 4ever All-in-One Car Seat and Maxi-Cosi Pria 85. Each car seat had it's pros and cons, but we loved the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 features a little more.

Do you have kids? What convertible car seat did you purchase?

Tomato Avocado Salad + #TeamPizza

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TeamPizza #CB #CollectiveBias


Oh football Sunday... let me count the ways I love you. The hubby is a guys guy which mean he loves sports, beer, fishing, camping, etc. Over the years I've learned to embrace and love game day. Maybe not as much as him, but I can't pass up a day of good eats and getting stuff done around the house ;) For example, yesterday while watching football the hubby finished installing all the trim in our living room, kitchen and hallway!

Of course, he worked up an appetite and I whipped up a delicious pizza, side salad and turtle pie. Ok, ok maybe I cheated and picked up a Red Baron Frozen Pizza and Edwards Frozen Pie while browsing Target the other day, but you can't blame me for trying. Red Baron makes game day meals easy.  Plus, right now Target is offering a discount via their Cartwheel app [offer goes live January 17th].


However, I did make a pretty awesome Tomato Avocado Salad.



Tomato Avocado Salad
serves 4-6

Ingredients
1 lb mini heirloom tomatoes
1 cucumber
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
2 avocados, diced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Directions
Place tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, avocado, and cilantro into a large salad bowl. Top with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. [Optional: add bacon, jalapeno]


Those of you who know me know I eat super healthy 90% of the time. This way I don't worry about indulging in pizza or pie the other 10% of the time! While I love making pizza sometimes there just isn't enough time. I like Red Baron frozen pizzas for a few reasons -- it's affordable, helps saves time in the kitchen and the crust is always perfect in every bite!

Ok, back to game day. We don't want to forget about the fit games you can play while watching football -- 5 burpees for every flag, 10 push ups for every touchdown, 15 sit-ups for every field goal, etc. You're options are endless and depending on the game you'll get a killer workout.


What's your go-to game day food?

New Year, New Workout Gear

Sorry, I went M.IA. for a few days -- I pulled a muscle. Not kidding, I managed to pull my pectoral muscle. I was push pressing 105lbs! Yay, but no upper body movements for the next few weeks. Anyway, I'll just sit here, drink my green smoothie and shop. Because shopping makes everything better. Right? I figured why not share some of my favorite workout gear. Gear for actually working out, not lounging around the house or running out for coffee.

New gear always inspires me to hit the gym a little harder. Feel unmotivated to workout? Maybe a new pair of leggings, tank or shoes will do the trick. Yup, I'm talking to all the woman who said they wanted to get in shape this year. This is me telling you to buy a new pair of pants instead of a week worth of lattes. :)


New Year, New Workout Gear


TANKS
I personally only workout in tank tops. Yup, I have a hard time in shirts, but that's just me. Lately I've been loving my UA and TNF tanks! [UA black, $35/ UA teal, $18/ TNF coral, $25]

PANTS
During winter months I switch it up between full length leggings and capris. When summer rolls around it's either capris or shorts. Right now I'm loving UA cold gear leggings. Honestly, I could wear them everyday. Typically you'll find me wearing them walking the dog or at Crossfit. These TNF capris are currently my favorite compression tights! The length is perfect, hitting about mid shin. Oh, and they're currently on super sale at REI.

SHOES
Today, I'm a Nike girl. I finally bought myself a new pair of shoes for Christmas and I can't stop wearing them. Currently I'm rocking the Nike 'Free 5.0' Running Shoe [$110]! Shopping tip: Try and find a Nike Outlet. I purchased mine for $50!

SPORTS BRAS
The only brand I'm currently wearing is Moving Comfort! You can purchase a sport bra based off your cup size! Start with this or this one. I've heard great things about the VS sports bras, but haven't tested them yet. Any thoughts?

MISC.
A few other workout items I can't live without include a gym bag, good hair ties and water bottle.

+  While I don't currently own the Lug Cartwheel Fitness Bag [$114], it's on my list. It definitely covers all my needs with two large cargo pockets, one zip pocket, and a drawstring pouch. These features make it easy to carry my daily gym essentials plus a yoga mat! This bag is perfect from yoga, to spin, to Crossfit.

+ I've owned a few water bottles in my day and right now Lifefactory is high on my list.

This list could go on and on, but these are just a few things I'm currently loving. Hopefully you've found a few new items and are ready to get sweaty.

Happy Shopping and sweating!

Blueberry Muffins + Hamilton Beach Mixer Giveaway!

Happy New Year!

Let's cut to the chase. Every one is making resolutions and probably more than 50% are fitness related.

Am I right?!

I'm not any different. I let myself go a little over the Holidays, but I'm back on track. One thing I'm trying to focus on is meal planning and prepping.

I'm more likely to stay on track if I have a plan and a fridge full on healthy meals and snacks.

Although, precooked and prepped meals and snacks are easy I prefer to make everything myself. That way I know what's in it. This week I prepped a few different things like chopped veggies, steel cut oats, and muffins for the hubby and Emerson. I think Emerson preferred the Blueberry Muffins over her Toddler [Spinach, Carrot and Banana] Muffins.



There's one key kitchen gadget to making tasty muffins -- a mixer. If you're a big baker you'll want a stand mixer, but if you're a beginner cook a hand mixer will do. Or if you're like me you need and use both! Sometimes you just don't need a big stand mixer to get the job done.


Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer [c/o]

Key Features
+ Powerful 300 Watt motor
+ 3 attachments offer mixing versatility [dough hook, whisk and flat beater]
+ Stainless steel 4 quart bowl - dishwasher safe
+ Includes splatter shield
+ 7 speeds for maximum flexibility
+ Nonslip feet
+ Tilt-up head lifts out of the way for easy bowl access


Blogger Thoughts
When I first picked up the box I thought "wow, this is so light." Then immediate wasn't sure if it would be heavy duty like my other very popular stand mixer [cough, cough Kitchen Aid]. Here's the thing -- surprisingly it was! Over the last month I've been using this stand mixer for all my baking needs. Cookies, muffins, pizza dough you name it I might have made it.

It mixes ingredients well and the bowl only needs minimal scraping. Hamilton Beach makes baking a no brainer with the cheat sheet on the side of the mixer. This is helpful if you're not sure what attachment or speed to use! Another feature I love is the non-slip suction feet! Because it is so light you one, don't have to worry about breaking your back lifting it and two, know it's securely attached to the counter if you walk away for a second or two. Moms you know what I'm talking about. Oh, I can't forget about the price -- it's only $109.99!!

My husband loves that it's dishwasher safe!

Hamilton Beach 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Pulse and Snap-On Case [c/o]

Key Features
+ Snap-on storage case with easy-access door
+ Pulse function — pulses on the slowest speed for added control and less mess
+ 290 watts peak power with burst button
+ 6 attachments included - twisted wire beaters, milkshake mixer, dough hooks, and whisk
+ Convenient eject trigger for attachments


Blogger Thoughts
This was a nice upgrade from my old Hamilton Beach hand mixer. I'm loving all the different attachments, power and of course the pulse option! Plus, you can't beat the snap on storage case making it extremely easy to store while keeping everything in one place. Whether you whipping up a batch of brownies or blending mashed potatoes this bad boy it key. At $34.99 it would make a nice housewarming gift.

My brother just moved into a new place guess what I gave him?! This hand mixer.


 Now for some deliciousness I whipped up for breakfast this week, Blueberry Muffins!


Blueberry Muffins 
Makes 12

Ingredients

2/3 cup sugar [plus, 1 tbsp sugar for the top, optional]
1 large egg
1/2 cup avocado oil  [vegetable oil works too]
1/3 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt [I used raspberry for a little extra flavor]
1 cup blueberries [I used frozen]

Directions 

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place 12 muffin liners in cupcake pan.

Using a mixer, combine sugar, egg, oil, milk, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Don’t worry about getting another bowl just add the dry ingredients right on top of the wet ingredients. Mix until smooth. Add greek yogurt and mix until combine. Fold in the blueberries.

Evenly distribute the batter in the muffin tin. Sprinkle the tops with the 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
