Good morning!  Happy Tuesday.  This is what I ate for lunch yesterday – it was so good.


Roasted red potatoes, butternut squash, and broccoli; baby bell peppers and onions; and three over-easy eggs.  Plus two fresh apricots on the side.


I spent Monday in recovery mode from the weekend.  We had a lot going on and a ton of visitors (the Husband’s grandparents are visiting us all the way from England!). There was a lot of cleaning up to do.  One big task I tackled was re-organizing our Toy Rotation boxes (<—that’s a how-to guide to keeping kids’ toys organized and fun).  Henry got so many new toys for his birthday that it was necessary! 


I am trying two new things with the toy boxes – I have four boxes, and I consolidated Henry’s toys into two boxes (plus the toys that are currently out) and made a toy box for Claire.  Girlfriend loves her toys!  I made the last box into a “too young for Henry, too old for Claire” box. 


Feeling organized is good.


In the evening, I snuck away for a workout.  I wanted to make 5:30 boot camp, but that was too late – it was my sister-in-law’s birthday and we had dinner plans at 7:30.  Yay!  So instead, I stuck my head into the boot camp room and checked out the whiteboard for the workout of the day… Then I headed over to the gym and did my own version.


You’ll need a bosu ball, two 10-pound weights, a 20-pound weight, and a bench.

This is a banana crunch – I am proud of myself because I can actually do the full version of the move now.  Well, I can’t do 8 rounds of 10, but I only need to modify half of the moves by keeping my hands on the floor.  Banana crunches have been super hard for me post-baby, so I’m loving that progress.   


Well, I have TWO Book a Week reviews to share with you (I went on a reading binge this weekend, obviously), but I’ll do that later in the week.  Until then… Have a fabulous Tuesday.  We’re in the middle of a record heat wave here in the South, so I’m gonna try to stay cool.  Whew!

    These are my favorite type of workouts! The apricots look wonderful! I totally bypass these at the store and need to start picking them up!

    This might be a weird question, but when you hold a plank to failure, do you actually hold it until you fall down, or do you stop when you feel like you need to stop?

    • Caitlin June 16, 2015, 10:34 am

      Hold it until you fall down!

    If I skip the bosu ball, I can do this at home! I’ve been on the lookout for GNH (gym’s not happening) workouts.

    Thanks for sharing this bootcamp workout! I’m knee-deep in triathlon training, but I’m also trying to work strength training in. This is perfect!

  • Heather June 16, 2015, 9:38 am

    Thank you for posting the boot camp workout! Definitely something I can do at home. Can you give a little more information, like when and for how long to rest, and how long the whole thing should take?

    • Caitlin June 16, 2015, 10:34 am

      I take as little breaks as possible, and I think the whole thing took me around 35 minutes 🙂

    OMG Claire is so cute!! I’m a bootcamp instructor and I am definitely saving this one for a day when I don’t have time to come up with something!! Thanks for sharing!

    Those apricots looks so juicy and good, they just reminded me how much I miss picking them straight from the tree in my grandparents garden, there is nothing better than a sweet and juicy apricot, fresh from the tree!

  • Amanda June 16, 2015, 10:31 am

    Your lunch looks so yummy!

  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul June 16, 2015, 11:36 am

    Ohh excited for the book reviews! Happy Tuesday!

  • Laura @ June 16, 2015, 11:37 am

    That photo of Claire is precious! I can’t believe how big she has gotten.

  • Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork June 16, 2015, 1:09 pm

    Thanks so much for sharing this workout! I’m used to do 3 sets of a circuit, but 8?! Can’t wait to try!

  • Katie @ Operation Happier June 16, 2015, 1:33 pm

    Can we talk about how amazing those apricots look? I love summer fruit so much, especially the stone fruits!

    I am curious to see how my abs do post-baby. I was doing so much pilates this past year that it was really sad to say goodbye to all the core strength I’d worked so hard for when I got too pregnant to do much anymore. I really hope I can get some of that back! Good on you for putting in the work!!

    Your lunch is beautiful! And fancy! Also that picture of your baby girl is precious. Her little half smile is the cutest!
