Our Anniversary + My Weekly Food and Fitness Plan #38

Good morning and Happy Sunday!

I hope you have had a weekend full of joy.  Ours has been great so far - 

Friday night we went to my nephew Kauffman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party.

My sister had the cutest decorations,

and the kids had a blast.

Yesterday was our anniversary, which we were able to celebrate in two great ways.

First - some of our friends renewed their wedding vows.  It was a surprise for Michelle, and because I was the one who helped get her there, Dan, Ina, and I were able to watch (well I was, Dan and I were late —> story of my life).

Hearing wedding vows being renewed was a perfect anniversary present.  

It was at the Overland Park Arboretum, which is a beautiful place I have never been to before (and 25 minutes from my house).

Ina’s favorite part by far was watching the fish while we fed them crackers.  There were a few snapping turtles in the mix too, which scared me because Ina looked like she wanted to jump right in there with them.

The arboretum also had a great train area and play area for kids.  We will be back for sure.  

Next Dan and I went out to eat to celebrate our anniversary.  We went to The Westside Local.

Hands down the best fries I have had in my life and the most amazing kale salad.

You must try this place if you are in Kansas City.  

My plan for this week:

Running with Racheal


  • Sunday: dinner at a friend’s house: we are bringing cottage cheese salad (which I have brought to the last 3 things we have gone to, but it was requested) 
  • Monday: chicken and bean bake (One dish.  Very little prep.  I love it.)
  • Tuesday: small group - someone is grilling burgers and we are bringing corn and basil salad
  • Wednesday: almond flour chicken fingers with roasted broccoli and baked sweet potato
  • Thursday: salmon (that came from TJ;s already marinated / seasoned) with lemon basil rice and roasted broccoli
  • Friday: chicken fajitas with a salad
  • Saturday: brick chicken with baked sweet potato and kale salad

I am determined to start packing Dan’s lunch this week.  So, I am also going to prep a few items to make him taking a lunch a little easier (all that have veggies hidden inside!).  


I know last week I said I was going to take a break from running to start T25, but I didn’t even last a week without the sweet feeling after a run (which I did AFTER the ab intervals workout of T25).  So, in addition to T25, I will likely add on a small run or swim here and there.

  • Sunday: stretch + possible 2-3 mile run
  • Monday: cardio
  • Tuesday: total body circuit 
  • Wednesday: Speed 1.0
  • Thursday: cardio
  • Friday: lower focus + ab intervals
  • Saturday: rest

What are you up to this week?


  1. Looks like an absolutely fabulous weekend!

  2. Happy Anniversary to you two!!! :)
