Our Full Plate on Instagram

 One more of this boy, who at no surprise to me, wanted to wear head to toe @underarmour clothes for his first day of school. I didn't even fight it. Gone are the days of cute polo shirts and khakis. #sigh #boyswillbeboys #Underarmor #mylove #thatsmilemeltsmyheart #firstdayofschool #ourfullplate
 Now it's Julian's turn. "J" is for Julian. Today is my BIG boy's first day of school in his 4-5 year old classroom at his Montessori School. To commemorate the occasion, I made my go-to Paleo pancakes (2 bananas, 4 eggs, 3 tablespoons of almond flour and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon) and added blueberries due to the special guy's request. We are so proud of him!! #thatsmilemeltsmyheart #mybogboy #paleo #paleokids #paleofamily #pancakes #firstdayofschool #montessori #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Don't be fooled by those puppy dog eyes. Somewhere in the middle of my #21DSD approved Green Monster Smoothie, Dylan learned to use a straw and sucked down half of that smoothie. Recipe is on the blog, but it's spinach, frozen banana, almond milk, almond butter and some hemp seeds. Yum!!! Happy Labor Day! #paleo #paleobaby #jerf #smoothie #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 One of the things I love most about CrossFit is the community. I was invited to do a WOD this morning at @crossfitcentral by the amazing @benderthiel. I have a lot of respect for Crossfit Central because they put CrossFit on the map here in Austin and have built such an amazing fellowship over the years. Lisa is a fellow CrossFit Mama who I remember following her on Instagram last year when she competed in the SW regionals and she still was nursing her baby. If that is not dedication, I don't know what is. Lisa returned to The CrossFit Games this year competing with the CC team. She is an inspiration to us all. Love to replicate the favor and have you come to CrossFit Camp Mabry. Our Box is your Box. Today we did "Eva" and Eva was not as nice. We did it with a partner and I'm glad I had @Cgaussiran to push me through it. We did 5x 800m (2.5 miles total) and did 75 heavy KettleBell swings (53lbs) and 75 pull-ups each. What a great way to start off the holiday day, now I'm ready for some much needed family times with my boys. #crossfit #community #crossfitfriends #believe #cfmabry #laborday #thiswodwaslabor #atx #austin #texas #fitfluential #ourfullplate
