Active Living

Staying fit, thin, and strong isn’t a pipe dream, it’s a lifestyle.

A website for everyone trying to do it all. I share my story to let you know you are not alone. Even if your plate is full, together we'll find ways to live our crazy lives, somehow stay sane, and even put together a healthy meal at dinner time (most nights).

Our Full Plate on Instagram

 Dinner tonight was a roast I threw in the crockpot this morning with homemade broth and 1/4 cup of balsamic, a side of my sautéed kale, bacon and butternut squash (recipe on the blog), and carrots and parsnips roasted in bacon fat. As much as I loved being on vacation, it's good to come back home and get back on schedule. I know it's weird and many people might not get it, but my body has been craving vegetables. Yum! #morevegetablesthanavegetarian #eattherainbow #paleo #crockpot #slowcooker #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 While that sucked, I might have created the sexiest sweat angel to date. Who would have guessed my shoulder blades make great, big boobs. I also wish my biceps looked that big. Others think it's a #UT #TX #Longhorn. What do you think?

 It's been awhile since I posted, but like my shirt says, I am #simplyhuman and something has to give. No one is perfect! Thanks for the reminder @simplyhuman52. My MIA status on social media probably has to do with the fact that I hit the ground running at work hours after we walked off the plane from a week in paradise. The expression "Back to reality" is no joke especially when you have to work through the weekend. But our family trip was so worth it, so no (or minimal) complaints here. Either way while work has been crazy this week, I've made time to do quick workouts here and there, which has helped me cope with stress. Yesterday I ran 3 miles around beautiful #TownLake here in #ATX to loosen up before I give it a go at #crossfit #15point5. Wish me luck. I'll need it!

Ben and I went back to @aggressivecrossfit today and completed 15.4. Owner and husband and wife team, @aggressive_adri and Henry are the best and super nice! They are as sweet as I remember. Ben and I went for the first time a year and half ago when I was preggo with Dylan. They are looking to qualify in Dallas for the regionals. Their box is unreal and huge. If you are in #sanJuan #puertorico go drop in!!!! Thanks for the ass kicker! You always have a home in #atx! #goodluck #CrossFit #crossfitopen #crossfitfriends #aggressivecrossfit #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 This is what FAMILY looks like. We are loud. We are very opinionated. We are crazy. We fight with each other over who is going to pay for the bill. We certainly are not perfect, but we love each other for who we are. We would do anything for each other and we wouldn't have it any other way. Love this motley crew; I honestly couldn't pick a better crew. I am also so grateful to each and everyone in this picture for so many reasons, for putting up with me and my cousins every summer when we were "shipped to Puerto Rico", for teaching me to drink, and for extending their love and generosity to my new family. Love you and so glad I was able to share my childhood memories and make new ones with my kids. #family #thisislove #grateful #blessed #ourfullplate
