Pollen Vortex, Eats, and Workouts

April 23, 2014

Is anyone else enjoying the warm weather as much as me? I don’t even mind the pollen that much because it’s so pretty out! I hear there’s a pollen vortex coming soon though so maybe I’m speaking way too soon. I think the rain every few days has helped ward off any serious allergies issues that may arise, which is nice so we can enjoy being outside more and do stuff like go to Braves games and hike.


But that’s enough talk about pollen and allergies. Let’s dive into some fun stuff like eats, goings on, workouts etc. This past weekend we visited my parents and got in some much-needed QT.

Me and T

I was too busy catching up and relaxing so I didn’t get any pics of our meals, but I did indulge in lots of great food as well as picked up my new favorite thing. Peach Butter.


OH EM GEE!!! If you’re a fan of apple butter, this is(dare I say) better. I’ve had this with my breakfast in cottage cheese and for snack on an english muffin. SOOO delicious! I could eat it all day everyday, but I’m hoping it doesn’t turn into one of those things where you eat so much you never want to see it again. I’m going to start rationing so that won’t happen;)

Another food I’m enjoying a lot more of lately: Seafood

salmon tacos

I don’t know why and usually I’m not all that into fish, but most of what I order in restaurants has been seafood based. Tacos, salads, sushi, doesn’t matter.


I think I’ve had too much beef and chicken and my body is just over it and in need of a change.

Spicy california roll

 And change is good! More goodness added to the list: Fresh Strawberries


I got these the same place as the peach butter(above) and they are my favorite snack and side. I LOVE fresh berries when they’re in season. Nothing better. Ok there are lots of other better food items, like ice cream, but topped with fresh strawberries makes it even better!

Workouts lately have been a mixture of things recently. I’m doing lots of Crossfit, barre classes, hiking, running(gradually getting back into that), and yoga. I’m trying to make yoga more of a habit especially since I’m doing more Crossfit. I’m so tight and it’s a huge help. The running isn’t as fun as it used to be but that’s another post. Working out should be enjoyable and challenging so I’m focusing on exercises that make me happy rather than dread doing them. That’s what it’s all about anyway.

Hope you had a great day!

Is pollen getting to you? What is your favorite seasonal fruit/veggie?

I am more into fish too! Not that I don’t always love it… but I think the warmer days have me craving something lighter. And maybe the inability to breathe thanks to the pollen.

Miss seeing you! Are you around much this month?
