A Week At Home: Decor, Eats & Fitness!

Happy Friday! πŸ™‚
I’ve drained all the energy out of my system today, and I’m finally sitting down to have my evening cup of coffee. Kyle and I are trying to decide between a movie and dinner or staying home and cooking. While I have this time to myself, I’ve decided to throw together a recap of my week! I was exhausted from all the traveling, so I spent a lot of time at home, working around the house, and going on long walks! It’s been the perfect week so far. I don’t have any crazy plans for the weekend, but I forsee a lot of walking and home DIY projects.Β 
My new coffee grinder finally came yesterday, and I was so excited to use it. While I was visiting the Sunshower Coffee Farm (blogging my experience soon), I learned some pretty crazy facts about ground coffee. It’s the spam of coffee beans. Defaulted beans are usually ground up, and the consumers can’t tell the difference. When you buy whole beans, you know you’re getting quality coffee. When I heard that, I immediately bought a coffee grinder! My cup of coffee couldn’t have been any more perfect this morning. I sat by the window with my dogs by my side, reading my book, and it keeps sucking me in.
Before I went crazy doing my Friday cleaning routine, I walked the dogs and made breakfast. My cleaning routine could be considered a workout. I had a hard boiled egg, farmers market blueberries, and Dave’s Killer 21 Grain bread with crunchy roasted peanut butter.
As soon as I finished putting the freshly washed bedding back, the pups decided they’d jump all over it. Thank goodness they don’t shed. They are too cute to get mad at. They like to sit upstairs in my room and watch over the neighborhood.

After three hours of cleaning, I had a quick bite to eat before meeting up with my mom to go for a long walk. I’m having so much fun fitting in my miles for the 150 June Walking Challenge!Β 

I mixed together apple slices with superfood granola from Oat Box and vanilla Siggis yogurt. So delicious and perfect before the trails.Β 
We walked three miles down the Riverwalk and three miles back. I need to remember to bring water because I was so dehydrated by the end of it. This summer heat arrived early.
When I got back, I had a sweet treat, coffee, and plopped on the couch to bring you this blog post! Remember the carb-less chocolate I made the other night? I made a new version without the peanut butter, added toasted coconut, sprinkles, vanilla, almond extract, and cinnamon! Soooo good.Β 
So let’s go back to last Friday. I was exhausted after spending fourteen hours traveling and taking the red eye from Hawaii. I was ready to get home and crawl straight into bed. I landed in Charlotte at 5 pm, had a big bowl of popcorn with Kyle and the pups on the couch, and fell asleep at 8:30 pm. I didn’t wake up until 9:45 am the next morning, and that NEVER happens. I think it helped me beat jetlag a bit faster.

I missed the dogs so much. I took Grumples on a walk in the neighborhood and then took Leo to the Riverwalk. Grumples likes to go two miles, but he’s done after that when it’s hot out. The neighborhood is perfect for him. Leo can go a little longer, so we walked 3.7 miles.


I made a salad for lunch. It had spinach, arugula, kale, avocado, goat cheese, blueberries, pita chips, and raspberry vinaigrette.
Later Saturday afternoon, Kyle and I made a Target trip (our fave.) I picked up some flags to put in the yard for Memorial Day and a new summer doormat. How cute is that? πŸ™‚Β 
For dinner, we made roasted sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, and homemade chicken nuggets.

I hadn’t seen Becca in a while since I was traveling, so I headed to Waxhaw to go on a walk and grab coffee with her.

We stopped at Crossroads Coffee House. It’s been one of my favorite spots for the past four years.

We walked the back neighborhoods in Waxhaw for about three miles. It’s the perfect spot to see adorable southern homes full of charm and character.

We stopped at some of the home boutiques and antique shops while we walked the town. I ended up buying a few things for the house.


When I got home, I made another salad for lunch. This salad had avocado, kale, arugula, spinach, blueberries, goat cheese, cucumber, and leftover homemade chicken nuggets.

On Sunday night, I made the carb-less chocolates πŸ™‚

I’m excited to share Sunday night’s dinner recipe with you soon. I made my enchilada recipe but with bell peppers and I think this is one of my favorite meals I’ve ever made. πŸ™‚ They were perfect for food prep too.

Sunday morning boys πŸ™‚ Grumples laid his head on Leo’s arm, and they sat like that for a good five minutes. Leo didn’t want to leave because he had a bone in his mouth.

I headed over to my parents to spend some time with them on Memorial day. We spent some time swimming and playing with the dogs in the yard.
Β When I left my parents, Kyle and I headed to the gym. I did a little 45-minute circuit that I pulled from one of the fitness challenge pages.Β 
Nothing better than an empty gym πŸ™‚Β 
I had leftover enchilada bell peppers and chicken nuggets for dinner after walking the pups. We spent the rest of the night watching The Bachelorette. It’s been an interesting season so far, but I’ll share my opinion and recap as the show goes on.Β 
The boys after their Tuesday morning walk!

Breakfast: sweet potatoes, blueberries, avocado, omelet with spinach and goat cheese.

I had the last leftover enchilada bell pepper and brussels sprouts for dinner.

My boys πŸ™‚
Β I was excited to try myΒ Oat BoxΒ granola with my yogurt πŸ™‚ The box was waiting for me when I got home from my trip. It’s a subscription service that sends you two bags of granola a month, and they are pretty tasty!Β 
These aren’t filled with anything artificial, and they are the perfect addition to a breakfast. You can read more about Oat Box here πŸ™‚ I really loved the natural taste and lightness of the oats. The superfoods granola was my favorite. I loved the little goji berries.
Β Grumples and I headed out for a really long walk on Wednesday afternoon. I’m trying to make up for the twelve days away from them.Β 
My dad came over Wednesday afternoon to help me hang my new mirrors that I bought at Farmhouse Roots in Waxhaw.
I’m still on the hunt for a new living room rug and cozy reading chair to go by the fireplace. When everything is done in the house, I’ll post all the before and afters!Β 
I sat down to answer blog comments Wednesday afternoon, watched the the House of Cards, and had some snacks:) Cucumber, carrots, and supremely spicey hummus!

I was happy with how well the mirrors pulled the room together. The evening sunlight shining through made me so happy. It’s finally feeling like my home.

For dinner, I made an omelet and brussels sprouts. The omelet had 1 egg, 5 egg whites, kale, spinach roasted garlic, goat cheese, and black pepper!

I was so excited to start the 150 Mile June Walking Challenge on Thursday!! I started the morning off with 2.5 miles with the dogs.
They were zonked.Β 
Breakfast: blueberries, Greek yogurt, and Oat Box granola.Β 
I did another three miles in the afternoon. I took Leo 1.5 and Grumples 1.5. It’s too hot for them to do the full three miles.
Β  Late lunch: I had Amy’s organic tomato soup with cheese and croutons.
The flowers I planted a couple of months ago are growing so fast!

I decided to spend some time painting on Thursday afternoon.

When I took this picture, it gave me inspiration for my painting. I loved the simplicity of the trees, ocean, sand, and sky.Β 
Β I am a sucker for sparkles, so I added shimmer on my gloss coat.Β 
I am going to add it to my beach themed bathroom.Β 
For dinner, I had an omelet, cherries, and avocado! Parent Trap was on, so the pups and I curled up on the couch and watched it. πŸ™‚

Questions for you!

  1. Are you doing the June Walking Challenge?
  2. What are you up to this weekend?
  3. Are you watching The Bachelorette / House of Cards?

    Hey Taralynn! I LOVE your blog, you are such an inspiration! I have been reading it for over 5 years! This may be an odd question, but how do you keep your avocados so green? I LOVE avocado but I generally don’t eat the whole thing and then the rest of it turns brown πŸ™ I just can’t bring myself to eat them when they get too brown and I feel like I waste them!

    Hey Taralynn! It has been a while since I have visited your blog. I originally found you on Tumblr years ago and loved your posts! When you transitioned to your own blog domain I didn’t really do much independent blog reading. However! I just launched my own blog which is beauty and lifestyle which reignited my love for reading others blogs. I’m so glad that I came back because I really loved this post. I didn’t realize how much I missed hearing about your life! Mr. Grumples!! and now you have a new one!! so exciting. He inspired my goal to own a goldendoodle some day. The way you incorporate exercise and healthy eating into your lifestyle is so encouraging for me. Especially with your new walking adventure. I am a case of many failed healthy lifestyle attempts and I would love to one day be able to lead a life like yours. Just simply to walk my dog more and walks with friends. The way you see cleaning as a work out. Just know that you inspired me today and I can’t wait to catch up with all the posts you’ve done and am looking forward to the new ones. I’m so glad that you are still blogging. Keep up the good work!! Love Aly.

      Hi, Aly!

      So happy you’ve stopped by πŸ™‚

      Would love to check out your new blog! I think everyone has those life moments where nothing really works on the healthy lifestyle end and that’s because timing is everything! I still feel like I don’t have it down some days! That’s the beauty of the “lifestyle” part πŸ™‚ I think getting up and moving is a workout πŸ˜‰ Thank you for all the kind words and I hope you enjoy the blog!!!

      I’m heading to yours now!

    Lovely post!

    Are you doing the June Walking Challenge?
    Not planning on to be honest. My life is pretty busy at the moment so I stick to more intense workouts like running in order to invest a little less time. But I enjoy walking 70min to work every now and then πŸ™‚

    What are you up to this weekend?
    Weekend is already over but it was lovely! Went to see my parents, hung out in their garden with the bunnies and went to the swimming pool with my granny. Nice and relaxing πŸ™‚

    Love the food pictures– they’re so inspiring!! Probably going to see if I can make some meatless stuffed peppers tonight (and try making them enchilada ones like those!), my boyfriend has been asking for them for, uh, weeks… whoops. πŸ™‚ I walk 3 miles at lunch every day, so I’m trying my best this month to get 15,000 steps (about 7 miles) a day. It keeps me sane!

    I haven’t gotten back into HOC just yet, but I’m getting there! How’s the new season? This weekend, I went up to visit my family in CT and spent a bunch of time power cleaning and walking their half yellow lab/half great pyrenees, who’s about 110 lbs… so maybe I should say he walked ME, lol.

    Those enchilada stuffed peppers look amazing! Can’t wait for the recipe! To answer your questions:
    1- Not yet, but I am having surgery this summer and won’t be able to continue with my lifting/strength training routine for a few months. The walking challenge may be just what I need!
    2- It’s Mr. Grape Pairing’s birthday today! We are celebrating by having board game competitions and going to eat sushi tonight!
    3- Not a Bachelorette fan, and I gave up on House of Cards in Season 3. It was so good, and then it lost it’s magic…
    Cheers, and Bon AppΓ©tit!

    I don’t usually comment on the blogs I read but just wanted to say how much I enjoy your posts and how inspiring you always are- you encourage everyone to do what works for them. I really enjoyed your half marathon posts – I was training for one at the same time. I’m also listening to my body and reading your post about it was such a blessing because I was struggling to feel ok with taking a break after all that training. Thanks for all the inspiration πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

    PS – Your food always look amazing and delicious and your boys are adorable!!

    I’ve never heard of Oat Box before but I love granola so I might have to try it! Will be perfect for summer since I basically live on parfaits and smoothie bowls which are always made better by granola!

    Your canvas painting (and rocks from earlier) are SO pretty and are inspiring my creativity!

    I am doing the June Walking Challenge! Moose and I we’re on one of your Instagram posts and felt like a celebrity πŸ™‚ thank you for brightening our day!

    This weekend I am moving!! The husband, dog and I are headed back to my home state of Colorado! I can’t wait to spend more time with the family and the summer in beautiful Colorado!

    I am not watching either The Bachelorette or House of Cards. But I have just gotten into The Catch which is my new obsession!

    1. I am attempting to do the June Walking Challenge! I live in south Florida and we literally only had one rainy day the entire winter… and of course it started raining the day you started the challenge and is supposed to continue at least until the 12th! It never fails right? LOL Luckily I walk a lot at work so I’m trying to keep up with it indoors!

    2. I’m not up to much this weekend because of the rain, but we definitely need it so that’s one positive. I went to breakfast this morning at a new restaurant, played with my doodle (Moose) for awhile, and started watching The Keepers on Netflix. It’s a true crime docuseries that’s pretty good so far! Tomorrow I’m going to see Wonder Woman with my dad… I usually don’t like going to the movies but he wants to see it and my mom refuses lol!

    3. I haven’t watched either series. I hear a lot of good things about House of Cards but I usually avoid political shows… is it worth a watch?

      Rain can be so annoying and so therapeutic at the same time. HOW!?

    Another great post! I don’t know if I’ll get quite 150 miles this month, but I am doing the challenge and out there walking as much as I can (I live in Raleigh, so I hear you about the crazy heat and dehydration). This weekend for me is all about the relaxing…i went to the pool already, I got to read some and there is a Renaissance Fair at the Art Museum tomorrow that we are going to attend. We are also definitely catching House of Cards this weekend! Looking over your post inspired me to make your homemade chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries and roasted brussel sprouts for the occasion.

    I’m sure the pups and Kyle are excited that you are back home with them. I don’t live far away from the Charlotte area, I really need to check out Waxhaw sometime, it just looks so beautiful in your pictures and I also love antique shopping. I also wanted to say that your paintings are very beautiful…you have a real talent for it. I love your recap posts and am already looking forward to the next one!

    I just love your recap posts so much! ? I stalk your blog daily to keep myself inspired to be healthy. I’m doing the June walking challenge. I’m so glad you started it. I had some Fitbit issues the first two days but I’m going to make it all up and hit the 150 miles. I’m watching House of Cards, trying not to rush through all my new seasons so quickly. Do you watch Bloodline? Another awesome Netflix show. This weekend, I’m headed out camping and digging for diamonds at a Crater of Diamonds National Park in Arkansas. Wish me luck! Lol. Have a great weekend.

    Can i just say that I LOVE your art?? It makes me want to start painting! I’ve done a couple of the sip and paint classes, which are so fun, but I don’t quite have the confidence to try it solo yet ?
    Granola is one of my favorite foods ever – Oat Box is such a good idea!

    We don’t watch the Bachelor (Ben and I basically just binge out on the Food Network) but I might have to pick up House of Cards with my extra time this summer!

    Our weekend will probably be our usual – a coffee shop date/work session (one of our favorite parts of the week!), some sun, and hopefully a brunch together!

    The weekend include pool time, reading, and HOC. What are you currently reading?? I go through so many books during the summer and am always looking for more! I recommend The Husband’s Secret–or anything by Liane Moriarty really.

    I need that enchilada pepper recipe! Those look amazing. I’m watching the Bachelorette! totally a sucker for the franchise and my boyfriend is into it too, hah! I loveeeee how you did some painting. I used to do a lot of art- so therapeutic for me. Need to get back on that!
