Time is FLYING...POOF just like that May is already coming to an end and I cannot believe how quickly the days, weeks, and months disappear 30 miles out at sea! No matter how early I start my morning, there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. I have been busy and learning to manage my time better...stop working at a certain time...and really just doing "what I can when I can". For example, I always have good intentions of putting together 2 blog posts per week, but something comes up and I realize I just can't do it. There is not enough quality time to put together a quality piece...so why force it! Plus, when you are managing 4 social media accounts, clients, and blogging, it leaves little time to have FUN...and this woman needs to have FUN, so I am working on doing just that!
My workouts have been STRONG...I am back in the gym and back to strength training and it feels good and I feel strong! Lately, I have been doing 60-minute workouts that entail cycling or running and then focusing on a specific muscle group. Right now I am doing higher repetitions, lower weights, and lots of CORE work! I also like to take a late afternoon break and disconnect with Lucy. We will walk the streets and just be! Sometimes they are quick...sometimes long...We just go with it and look at all the pretty houses and just soak it all in...Beautiful island life!
Michele's Granola is DELICIOUS...Yesterday's weather was AMAZING and I am a happy camper that I can now spend more time outside on the porch working, eating, and let Little Lucy run crazy! She is very very very happy. But this granola...OMG! The clusters, the crunch, the flavor...DELISH! I put some into an almost empty Crunchy Peanut Butter Woodstock-Foods jar + a sliced banana + some blueberries and it was ridiculously good. I have been craving bananas this week. Before slicing them, I actually like to put them in the fridge for a good 30 minutes so that they are cold when eaten. And I definitely searched the bag for the large clusters and had some on the side as well.
Slow Cooked Costco Ribs are ALWAYS a good idea...I love making these Costco ribs!!! They are so delicious, fatty, and some seriously delicious comfort food. I bake it in the oven at 250 degrees covered for 5 hours. The last 15 minutes, I uncover them and bake at 400 degrees to get them crispy! This time around I paired it with roasted cauliflower, which was seasoned with Simply Organic seasonings, and cole slow. Oh and don't forget the hot sauce!
Currently Obsessed With The TV Show The Night Manager...It is a great mini-series and the main character is HOT...This show is AMAZING and Tom Hiddleston is just dreamy! I stumbled upon this show on a lazy Sunday and was immediately hooked. It is mysterious, scandalous, and sit on the edge of your seat captivating. The last episode was last night and I cannot wait to watch it later this weekend. And it definitely helps that Tom has an accent, great fashion, body, looks, and charisma. Swooning.....
That kind of wrap things up before the holiday weekend! I have a lot of post ideas that I want to share next month, but like I said, I just need the time to put them together. Be on the lookout for some workouts, recipes, and what my single life is like on Nantucket...That should definitely be a good one! Until then...Have a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend and see you next week! XOXO
