Was this anybody else over the weekend?
Abby has a good way of showing exactly what I looked like for 3 days straight. I guess that’s what a head cold will do to you! I was telling my sister-in-law it was like a roller coaster sickness. Tuesday was sore throat & aches into Wednesday. Thursday I felt a surge of energy and felt better, worked out, & then ended up Friday with a super uncomfortable head cold with all of those usual symptoms.
So what did I promise myself? To do NOTHING all weekend. Other than my lovely clients, I hung out with the couch, my ipad, & my box of tissues.
Today I am feeling better – thank goodness. It’s the first morning I woke up being able to “breath” without being all stuffed up. Amen!
It’s amazing what REST can do for our bodies.
But for real though – Sundays are my “day”. My day to clear my head, relax, & rejuvenate for a nice & busy 6 days! Anyone else a big Sunday fan?
Anywho – on the positive side – my head cold did not take away my appetite!
I was able to compile a ton of food pics over the week so today’s post is a lot of candy for the eyes ;]
Favorite 1) Nothing like a FitSnack box to make you feel better!
Papcakes likes to make them all pretty & stuff ;]
If you’re interested in getting monthly eats sent to you to try check out the packages with FitSnack [HERE]!
2) Sunday morning pancakes, per usual.
Dad used a gluten-free mix this time with protein powder, bacon on the side, kerrygold butter (YES!), & pure maple syrup.
3) Sunday’s are my Dad’s day to shine in the kitchen since he’s not working so dinner was grass-fed beef spaghetti sauce over whole wheat noodles & side of basil garlic polenta fried up in coconut oil.
4) Dessert? Yes please. Especially with a sore throat, anything cold & creamy is on the top of my list. Insert: So Delicious Butter Pecan ice cream.
Topped with strawberries, chocolate chips, & so delicious cocoWhipped! It was delicious.
5) Coffee dates with my Pap!
Even though I was a bit under the weather, I still made time for an almond milk latte & spending some time with someone who wouldn’t mind being around me & all of my tissues – my Pap.
I can’t even begin to describe how much I look up to my Grandpa who supports me in everything I do. He is continuing to grow his business, start a blog, & connect people daily. Every time we spend time together I am more and more inspired to continue doing what I do. Love you, Pap!
6) Breakfast for Dinner.
All the #breakfastfordinner food. Omelet with basically every frozen veggie we have in the freezer ❄️ [peas, peppers, onion, & fresh kale], whisked with red hot & dill before cooking with a side of sweet potatoes, roasted cauliflower, & Trader Joe’s hummus for dipping.
Side of Kill Cliff cause I thought maybe it would give me super powers to kick my cold ;]
7) The return of bagel sandwiches!
I picked up some whole wheat bagels at Trader Joes the other day (one opened up right by my house now! good thing for me, bad thing for wallet – although they do have reasonable prices!)
Made a bagel-wich out of Traders Joe’s turkey, kale, hummus & dijon mustard. Talk about FUEL right there.
8) Tator tots for days.
For real though, who doesn’t love a tator tot? We had some in the freezer so for dinner last week we kept it classy with some tots on the side of grass-fed burger, roasted beets, & asparagus.
9) Over the weekend, I was taking it easy, but Abby was all like, “I’m ready to squat”.
This cat never ceases to amaze me with her randomness.

10) Nightly bowl of “deliciousness”.
I make this into cereal or sometimes just want that crunch — I’ve got puffins, strawberries, @traderjoeslist O’s, popcorn, & @questnutrition s’mores bar chopped into bite size pieces.
Carbs after a certain time used to be a big roadblock for me but now that I’ve worked towards #bodypeace and finding that my body needs a certain amount of carbs a day.
We cover Night time eating in BODYpeace & I’ve truly worked to change my thoughts to look at it as fuel now & that food fear can (slowly but surely) go away.
For anyone who struggles I challenge you to do your research, possibly work with a coach who practices fuel & not restrictions (check out my coaching at KaseyArena.com), and/or challenge yourself to incorporate more of the food you fear into your eats.
You will eventually get to a point where you start to see that you are OK and that food doesn’t have a power over you anymore. You have the ability to find the balance that works for YOU.
I’m off to train my kiddos so I will bet talking to you guys soon!
Be true to you,
