Fit After Little Bits

Weekending is my Fave

Catching up on some weekend fun over here! Cant believe it is Tuesday already…Monday seems to have evaporated…and we arent sad about it over here! One day closer to the next weekend….

Here are some weekend highlights

*Saturday Ken raced a fat bike race up near Steamboat Lake. It wasnt gorgeous or anything.



Yep, we sported our matching hats 😉IMG_8819

Ken won the race and was gifted the “golden Eagle”. Brooke promptly stole that little guy. Refuses to sleep without him now!IMG_8830

When we got home from the race, I was supposed to ride…BUT this happened instead.


Sometimes you just need a rest day, y’all…so instead we went to bike shops and oogled new goodies (that made me feel guilty about skipping my ride)-facepalm.

*Sunday…we celebrated Easter with some bunny shaped food!


Unfortunately, Brooke ate too much of the pineapple bunny and Ken got to see that later.

After a low key egg and basket hunt, Ken headed out for a ride and I followed when he was done. It was pretty spectacular out! I enjoyed about 30 miles of perfection (but lazy legs).


We spent the rest of the evening eating and enjoying fam time!

*Monday…Back on the trainer for 45 minutes. It’s like I am hating it less…or maybe when it is your only option, you make it work.

In the afternoon, we signed paperwork that will hopefully put us under contract on a sweet foreclosure property! More on that to come…including some serious reno projects. Fixer upper anyone?!

*Today…we are being lazy. Okay, I rode for almost an hour on the trainer and then we went for a walk in this…so good!


Hoping the little will take a little rest this afternoon so I can get some work done!

Enjoy your day! Hope you get outside!

Outside is Sweet.

Happy Tuesday, y’all! I hope you had an amazing weekend!

We enjoyed some non-snowy weather over here and it was pretty sweet. I even got to ride outside….4 days in a row. BAM!

Some highlights….

*We are still in home searching mode. On Saturday we went and looked at a home that recently popped up on the market. It is “a bit of a fixer upper” but I kind of love that idea! Ken and I aren’t afraid to tackle some DIY projects…or 10, so we will see how it goes. Another house that we were interested in that had previously gone under contract-reappeared today. Not sure what that means, but we will be doing some talking and looking and talking and looking throughout the week.

*Saturday’s ride was about 1.5 hours of hard effort (followed by dinner out to celebrate 7 years of marriage!) and then Sunday I was able to get about 30 miles in during my 2 hour ride. It was pretty perfect. I saw about 20 cars in 30 miles. Can you beat that?!




*Brooke has been crushing her bike skills lately. I ask her all the time if we can go for a run (i.e. her in the stroller) and she tells me “no, I want to ride my bike.” So proud of her, but Jasper and I could use a little running in our lives.


*We got to sneak out on a ride yesterday afternoon when Ken got home. It was 52 degrees. Kind of awesome!

*This morning Brooke and I beat the rain/snow that should be finding us this afternoon and hit the bike path for an hour and some park time. Now we are getting ready to take Jasper out (and Brooke has informed me she will be riding).



*Anyone else obsessed with the slow cooker. We will be out this afternoon/evening and I just threw stuff in to be ready when we get home. Heaven.

Okay, enough random. Just found out that the last of the Hunger Games movies came out on Redbox today. Anyone want to guess what my weekend will look like?

Random Friday-ness

Happy Friday, everyone!! Hope you have some fun weekend plans!

I am pretty stoked on getting outside to ride after spending all week inside on the trainer. I mean, I will take the workout, but I MISS outside!

We spent all of last weekend (and then Brooke and I drove down and back to Boulder on Monday…ahhh) to finish up the last of our packing. I can now say, we wont be going back to our “old house”. Mixed emotions! So we are extra excited to spend time up here together playing for the next two days!

Some highlight/lowlight/faves/notfave….

Love…spending time with this girl….


Love the occasional moment it is warm enough to eat outside!


Love celebrating 7 years of marriage…and many more together (and some pretty Hawaiian flowers)


Dont Love…a lady hitting our parked truck while we are in the process of finishing moving. Thanks, lady.


Didnt love…Driving home in a blizzard…with Brooke. Whew. That was exhausting.


Love/hate….riding the trainer…watching Sesame Street. Like the trainer couldnt be worse! At least I had a fun sidekick to entertain me.




Love/hate….another 8+ inches of snow. Spring?

IMG_8715Enough random?

Going to take advantage to the cessation of snow and try to run the kids to the park…We need outside! 😉
