All Things BAE.

Swear this was Madison a week ago, hanging out in the garage with me while I painted furniture. Y'all regulars remember those days??  The other day at our 'buy all the Pumpkin items' trip to Target she refused to buy My Little Pony socks, said that was for babies, I maybe died a little inside for my sweet Twilight Sparkle. On the bright side I won't have anyone asking me if I really named my child Twilight Sparkle. 

In other news I made THE MOST AMAZING PUMPKIN BREAKFAST EVER. You're really missing out if you don't try this recipe, I'm just sayin'

1 package Lil Buff Bakery Mix  : code: skinnymeg
70g Pumpkin Puree
30g Almond Milk
1 egg
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

50g of vanilla okios
22g Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese
sprinkle of cinnamon

I also made some sweeter ones for dessert last night.

1 package Lil Buff Bakery
1 tblspoon coco powder
75g applesauce
30g Almond Milk

Then I carved out a middle - pipped in marshmallow fluff and topped with a bit of Peanut Butter All-Natural Non-GMO Dollop Gourmet Frosting .

I do better making my meals full of lean meats and veggies when I know I get a bit of something sweet at some point during the day. I know that restricting myself too much leads to being unhappy, even better when my desserts can have some protein!

We are almost 8 weeks out from my Lower Body Lift, I'm apparently some freak who recovers quickly LOL I don't know why, but once I was able to stand up straight I just felt pretty much back to normal. I'm almost back to the weight I was lifting before I went out, my deadlift took the biggest hit, I'm about 50 pounds under my max.

Sooooooo there's a competition coming up that's close to my house and I kinda want to do it - scaled version {non cross fitters that means it's the 'easier' version of the workout}. I'm scared though, so of course I'm trying to talk some other girls into doing it with me. I'm going to try the workouts this weekend and make sure I can lift the weight required on each move - mainly my snatch. Deadlifts, box jumps, jump ropes { I ducking can't figure out how to double under!!! ugh.} , burpees, snatches, and a couple other things I'm forgetting.

I know that all the great and amazing things in my life have come on the heels of being afraid. Going back to college, trying my first bootcamp, running a marathon, shit even that first week of Crossfit! I don't regret any of it and I need to remember that when I'm nervous about working out in front of a group of people.


  1. Do it!! The endorphin rush from CrossFit comps are the best

  2. No more Twilight Sparkle!?!? Awww that is sad.

  3. Ohhhhhh thank you for these recipes!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  4. I never had an experience before last week that I felt like I needed a weight lifting belt.. until I had to do this last week [12 minutes to find a max for the complex of: 3 deadlifts + 2 cleans + 1 hang clean] Tonight is 3 snatch grip DL + 2 hang snatches + 1 power snatch and I really wish I had the belt I ordered!! Do you feel the need yourself?!?! Maybe my core just needs to get stronger!!

  5. Twilight Sparkle😣 She's growing up too fast


  6. A regular here🙋🏻... little Madison is growing up so fast!! A girl, you look SO GOOD! YOU give me hope for mamas that there's life after weight gain. Thanks for sharing, and for keeping it real.

  7. I 💟 you and your courageous ass! Thanks. That's all. See you in vegas baby!!

  8. Okay, explain it to me like I'm 5 yo. The pumpkin ones, do you divvy the batter up into three muffin tins? Four?

  9. Those desserts look so amazing! I've been trying to learn doubles too. I just hate feeling like I'm going to pee 😳 But I've been practicing one single one double one single one double and hoping to cut more and more singles out and string everything together! Can't wait to hear more about your competition


Make my day and leave me a love note!
