Oh, How Pinteresting. Because I forgot to get dressed. That's a Lie.

Hiiiiiii frans! 

So... I thought about writing some inappropriate thing about how I didn't get any pics for WIWW because I walked around naked all day, but that was a lie, and not blog appropriate, so I decided against it.

Instead, I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes from Pinterest with you guys. That place has become my cookbook - I turned to it when I made our monthly meal plan, and so far I've been happy with almost everything. Here are my top five choices from the past two weeks (except the sesame chicken - I already shared the link to that one here).

1. Crockpot Broccoli and Beef

2. Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili

3. Mexican Pizza



4. Slow Cooker Breakfast

5. Crispy Southwest Chicken wraps

OH!  One last thing - I made a pact with Kristen to wake up ridiculously early every morning this week and work out. Yesterday I made it to cycling at 5:30 (and then almost fell asleep at work a grand total of one million times). And... the husband and I went on another short bike ride after dinner. I feel like posting photo evidence, just for my own sake - as sort of encouragement to myself.
Note: that's a "2" for "day 2," not a peace sign. sheesh. I may do duck lips, but come on - even I have limits.

I'm all about my Pinterest recipes right now. I actually feel bad for my cookbooks because of how much they are being neglected.
And now you've inspired me.... tomorrow I'm going to wake up at 5:30 to make sure I have time to work out. I've been slacking lately and the laziness needs to stop.
You're my girl Alyx, you're my girl! :)

Go you! So I JUST joined pinterest (super super late....but it was for fear that I would get addicted!)and even though I can feel that I am getting a little addicted, I'm sooooo into all the recipes I'm finding! So easy!

Keep up the awesome work waking up so early to work-out, you rock! I'm so terrified about the school year starting again and having to do the 6am wake-ups again. Ugh! 2 more weeks of summer vaca for me though

Thanks for sharing those awesome recipes! I need to start cooking more. Congrats on accomplishing day 2 of working out. I've exercised for the last 2 days too! I'm hoping to do some fast walking with weights 3 times a week and fast walking/jogging 2 times a week. Just needed to let someone else know so they can keep me on track ;P

That's wonderful, great job!!!!! I really want a slow cooker, though I don't know if my housemate would touch/eat the contents before I got home :-/

Have a great day Alyx :)

You go girl! I am TOTALLY a morning person, I used to work at Starbucks at 4:30 am but since I started blogging, I've been forced to be a night owl! I do all my blogging starting at 11 pm the night before I post an entry but working out in the morning is something I want to do! Good for you, maybe you posting about your morning adventures will finally give me the kick in the butt to start mine!!

Uuuugghh. I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest food posts. They always make me so freaking hungry! Like that mexican pizza? YUMM!

rooth said...

Gah, I don't have a slow cooker and you're making me think I really need to invest in one. And good on you for waking up early to work out. I tried that once for three months. That's it :)

RadiantKristen said...

I think we should also meal plan together, in addition to early morning workouts. And don't think you get out of getting up early tomorrow just because you overslept today!

Thanks for the shoutout, friend. You're amazing.
