Our Full Plate on Instagram

 I know many of us have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest but this craft ended up being very easy to do so I had to share. So for Julian's school Halloween party today, we decided not to bring candy and give out glow sticks to help his friends' parents keep dibs on their kids during Trick or treating. I printed out these labels online and bought 100 glow sticks for $10 on @Amazon. Super cute, super easy super cheap equals one super happy mama. Happy Halloween! #DIY #crafts #pinterest #happyhalloween #notreats #boymom #momof3boys #ourfullplate #fitfluential
 Villain themed WOD today at CrossFit Camp Mabry in honor of Halloween. This is proof adults can dress up too and have fun. For time, 100 burpees but at every minute you must do 8 thrusters (45/35#). That was pure hell. 13:57 was my time RX. Now I deserve a piece (or two) of candy from my kids' treat bag. Happy Halloween! #crossfit #cfmabry #WOD #RX #atx #austin #texas #fitness #fitfluential #exercisecanbefun #ourfullplate
 Why did I spend money on real Halloween costumes when I could have used an app to "Halloweenify" my crazy boys? Thanks @crossweb! #lovetechnology #thesearenottheirrealcostumes #happyhalloween #momof3boys #boymom #ourfullplate
 Does my breakfast scream Happy Halloween with my gooey eggs and my favorite, lazy "hash?" My hash is super easy to make, just roast brussel sprouts with bacon on top of it with a little extra oil and salt and pepper at 425 degrees for 35 minutes. Recipe on the blog for details! #happyhalloween #eatveggiesnowbeforeipigoutoncandytonight #justbeinghonest #imnotperfect #moderation #paleo #notpaleoperfect #youonlyliveonce #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Tonight's dinner was @paleomg 5 ingredient pizza spaghetti, roasted okra, plantains fried in coconut oil and my homemade ginger lime komboucha. I made this dish tonight so I don't have to fuss with dinner tomorrow night before we go trick or treating. #planahead #Halloween #paleo #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Another awesome day doing what I love. What an amazing seminar with the Texas National Guard! Here's to new perspectives and change. Have I mentioned I love public speaking? #manifestyourdreamstoreality #bestinhealth #keepaustinfit #veteran #lovemyjob #Repost from @ourfullplate with @repostapp --- Another great day of learning about ourselves with @lcrwellness. Today we learned to take our one year goals and do what the Army does best, backwards plan so we become successful and attain those goals! We all came out inspired and so reenergized that we decided to take our group picture up to another level! #followyourdreams #makethemreality #motivation #inspiration #itstartsnow #goalsetting #fitfluential #ourfullplate #atx #cfmabry #austin #texas #army #soldier #selfimprovement
