Hey You.

Dusting off this blog, it's been a minute since I've sat down to write. Sometimes I feel like I share so much on my other social media there's not a lot left to say here, but I'm not ready to stop blogging. I've been documenting our life for years now and I like to read back what we were doing. Halloween was great, the kids were out of school so they went to the zoo with Oma and Opa. Us adults dressed up for Crossfit, this outfit I bought a few years ago for an 80's party has sure come in handy quite a few times. 

I made a Home Chef meal before we went out to hunt and gather candy, broccoli cheese soup. Oliver declined his because it has onions in it, still a mystery to me why I married someone who hates onions. Madison loved it though, the soup was very chunky with veggies, def making again! 

No homemade costumes from Mimi this year, but Target to the rescue. We had to hide Aiden's sword several times, he kept running around yelling 'argh' and hitting everyone. 

But, I mean, how you can be mad at the face?!

I won my last Diet Bet - this is my weigh in face EVERY FREAKING TIME, Oliver can't take my picture to save his life. He cuts off the words, my head, or takes to long and the scale turns off. Sigh. I'm going to do a Holiday group, but it's going to be a little stricter on requirements just so we only have people who WANT to participate. It will run from Nov 15th to Jan 1st. You have to post/check in daily on FB, also if possible do body fat testing before and after {or close to}, if body fat testing is not available to you I was thinking of doing measurements, just something besides the scale. 

If you are interested in this please send me a Facebook message to my SkinnyMeg account.

I came across this picture and it really makes me appreciate how far we've come as a family, I'm thankful that fitness is now something we can do together. I'm still not up for lots of running, but the Crossfit competition I did was so much fun I've signed up for another one this weekend. It's a partner one which makes me nervous, now if I screw up I let down someone else! Next weekend we are heading to Vegas for Rock and Roll, I'm hoping my knee will be on board - I've been going to PT 2x a week and doing all my stretches daily with a OPTP Stretch Out Strap plus taking Turmeric Curcumin with Bioperine which is really helping with the inflammation. Oliver's never been to Vegas, we are going to have so much fun! I'm already planning out what we are going to eat :) 


  1. Have loved following your blog for years! How many days a week do you crossfit?

  2. Ok, if you're going to Vegas, here are my recommendations (from a former resident):
    Frankie's Tiki Bar (a short uber ride from the strip) or the Golden Tiki. I like Frankie's best, but the Golden Tiki has Dole Whip drinks (almost identical to the Disneyland ones) that are pretty freakin awesome.
    Pizza Rock or Grimaldi's. So bomb.
    Greasy breakfast food-Omelet House. It's nothing fancy. Seriously, like it's the epitome of coffee shop. But they have the best breakfast ever.
    Osaka for sushi or in my case, udon. It's so damn good.

    Have fun! Enjoy Vegas!

  3. I messaged you about the holiday group!

  4. Thank you for blogging! I enjoy reading a snap shot of your life and journey for years. All of the other social media has begun to feel like a huge over share. Spend that time with your beautiful children, husband, family and friends. Thanks again for blogging!

  5. I don't have periscope or snap chat nor do I have the desire to get one, so I only see blog posts and IG posts. I am happy you aren't giving up on blogging.

  6. Oh my goodness! The soup looks amazing!!! Where did you get the recipe?! ��

  7. Can I ask what your age is in both pictures? I'm just curious...I'm feeling my age and slightly hopeless that I'll be able to get back where I want to be after 2 babies in 2 years at age 36.

    1. You can do it!!! I had 2 babies in 2 years and I was 33 at the time. Ran a marathon at 34. then at 35 decided to start heavy lifting and within 3 short months began to see reminents of my old body coming back. My baby boy is 2 now and I'm feeling better, stronger and in more shape at the age of 35 than I have in my whole life! I have always been an avid runner, but never a weight lifter and it changed my life. I started following megan and she inspired me 2 years ago! Never give up!

  8. I've missed you! I'm constantly logging in to check and see if you post or not. :D

  9. Go to Serendipity 3!!! They have such yummy food!!!!

  10. So glad you're back!! Missed your posts!!

  11. You are so inspiring! I am have lost almost 40 pounds..about 3 away! You always keep me going when I want to stop!

  12. Vegas Baby!!!! We have been on the count down for weeks! Can not wait! My running has been sub par as well lately but I like to call this 1/2 my hangover 1/2 as it is in Vegas! And it is my only time away from my littles!
    I'm so pumped! Hopefully our paths will cross! I'd love to finally meet you in person after reading your blog for oh....YEARS! Lol!

  13. OMG! You guys look so fabulous in your after post! It makes me inspired to keep moving forward and never give up until I reach my goal! that is to stay healthy and fit for the rest of my life!

  14. Isn't it great to have such a cool common interest with your hubby? When my husband and i were both doing Crossfit (he had to stop for most of this year to study for his P.E. exam, we would come home and talk about our WODs and the people in our boxes (we went to different ones, his was close to his job, mine close to my school). Looking forward to getting back to that :)


Make my day and leave me a love note!
