Life Lately… Photo Style

Hi guys!! 

Life has been a bit busy the past two weeks, it’s amazing how quickly you forget what being out of town can take up so much of your time when you get back. Anyways we have been up to some fun the past couple weeks and I thought I’d share it here! 

Last weekend we headed to Michigan to see family and celebrate my & my aunts birthday. 


Camera class @ a local shop. Camera basics was a great intro and reminder of how to use camera settings. 

A quick shopping trip at REI for some birthday leggings, a treat from my Dad! ((The REI CO-OP leggings are THE BEST!!! seriously go buy them… NOW!))

Dinner and birthday gifts with Brent & my parents made for a perfect Saturday night! 

Valentine’s Day-

 Spin class sweat to start the day!!

Brunch with my extended family! So much food, so good! 

  Some quality time with my sweet neice, she is growing up so fast I can’t believe it!

A nasty drive home through snow followed by a FANCY valentines dinner of ((free)) Chipolte burritos & brownies. 

Work week filled with workouts, fitness and work. Nothing super exciting this week. 

Friday was a gorgeous day! I loved walking outside after my workout and having the sunshining  and not having to bundle up… Until the crazy winds hit ya in the face! 

Saturday started with a serious workout session. First an upper body max effort lifting session than a 60minute spin class. It was a fun double header at the gym! 

Brent & I took my car to get washed & we vacuumed out the inside, which was much over due. We also went and walked around a park to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather we had. 

  Dinner with friends Saturday night followed by a protein packed Sunday breakfast and a lazy productive remainder of the day. 

  We cashed in some wedding gift cards & bought a new coffee maker, so far we love it. 

Alright all caught up on our life the last two weeks. We have another couple busy weeks coming up but I hope to not drop off the face of the blogosphere. If you don’t follow me on Instagram (@allisoninwellnessland) and snapchat (@mywellnessland) you should, I’m much more active there! 



Fridays are for Thinking Out Loud?!

Happy Thursday! Oh wait its Friday….

yep this post was 100% completed, set and ready to go but then BOOM blogger meltdown, post eliminated, disaster… UGH!

So what you would’ve read yesterday would have been something along the lines of “my brain is about to explode” so I am linking up with Amanda & thinking out loud!


What you would’ve read was… how on Wednesday I woke up channeling my inner Madeline #somethingisnotright & found a torrential downpour in the bathroom…. #thankyoupolarvortex… blogger thing to do was recording it and uploading to IG @allisoninwellnessland

What you would’ve read was… how right now I am in severe need of buying peanut butter/nut butter, I am ALL OUT. #totalfail this will be fixed this weekend. you also would’ve read about how I am thinking about jumping on the Quest Bar bandwagon… seriously everyone seems to be in-love with these little bars of goodness and I have yet to try one. I could wait until I visit Arman, but maybe Ill try a few and make a request for my visit 😉

What you would’ve read was… how excited I am for February and the FitApproach & Lorna Jane challenge. I love a good little challenge and the Move, Nourish Believe challenge fits that bill perfectly. I am excited to try each day’s task and get involved with some of the Sweat Pink girls a little more! If you are interested in joining the fun head over to the event’s page on Facebook!

Do YOU #sweatpink?

Do YOU #sweatpink?

What you would’ve read was… how this “recipe” has been hauled up in my blogger “to do” file for quite a while but I always forgot to photograph the evidence. Lucky for YOU I remembered this time & this will be coming soon to a blog post near you!

Coming soon to a blog post near you…

What you would’ve read was… how excited I am for my Birthday next Saturday. I think turning a year older is a pretty sweet thing and kicking off the weekend with some WINE time on Friday is a perfect start!

What you wouldn’t have read was how I quit BCD Thursday after finding out I have a sinus infection. I really enjoyed the first day of BCD but knowing I am fighting an infection on a already compromised immune system I decided restricting my calories on top of that would be a potentially dangerous combination. I do plan to do the reset & BCD combo again in the very near future because I felt great, minus the attack my sinuses had on me.

Hope you have a happy Friday!
