Sparks from our week:

jax watching us workoutJax watching Gary work out as I stretch. Our morning routine.

avocado sardines with roasted carrots

We’ve been loving tri colored carrots lately. We just cut into fries, coat in coconut oil and roast in oven until tender. So good. We love our root veggies.

single serving chocolate cake

Enjoyed our single serving chocolate protein fudge cake! Definitely looking forward to making this again.

grain free plantain paleo waffles with yogurt

Enjoyed a delicious plantain waffle with sheep yogurt. Just took our basic plantain bread and added in some coconut flour and baking soda. Simple and delicious. Treated ourselves to some sheep yogurt from Whole Foods.

raw chocolate macaroon

Still enjoying some raw chocolate macaroons (recipe in purely classic cookbook)

window blinds

Gary and I finally got new window blinds for our windows in our home. Definitely helps make the house feel more current and fresh.  Love them.

sauted veggies with avocado and salmon for dinner

Saturday night we enjoyed some baked salmon, avocado and a delicious blend of veggies ( roasted carrots, shredded cabbage and brussel sprouts, and parsnips).

don't be so hard on yourself. no one is perfect. keep trying new things.

Focus of this past week — realizing that no one is perfect. And to see greatness all around us and never stop trying new things.

purely fit life home workouts

Filmed a fun new workout with a new move in it that we are loving — our plank squat into knee to elbow.

 Sparks from around the internet:

My fat to fit fabrication  –> great post about before and after photos. It’s crazy with all the photo editing anyone can make themselves look at certain way. We always are 100% us on here!  The only photoshop things we have done to our pictures is removed blemishes. Plus we don’t know how to do anything else, haha

Deconstructing our cravings –> great info on cravings and addictions

Gained 15 pounds and still sexy –> wonderful post by Stefani about loving your body even if you gained some weight. We will admit this is something we have struggled with, and still do from to time when we notice we gain some weight.

How much water do you really need?  –> always interesting

tips for working at home  –> having a routine is key for us

why not knowing your family health history can be deadly  – good thing to know

Help I’m counting calories and can’t stop  — great read and we agree

  8. Lori and Michelle,
    Once again another great write up! I enjoyed your previous post “our-life-lessons-to-take-with-us-into-2014”. This time though you’re going to make me FAT! (LOL, just kidding)! But seriously, these items look great, especially the pumpkin plantain bread! A great treat after a long run! Thank you for your post, I really enjoyed it!
