Just to mix it up a bit, I decided to workout with a trainer this week instead of my normal CrossFit routine.  I met him on the Santa Monica stairs, he was cute and asked if I wanted to workout with him, so what’s a Cheek to do??!  As I’ve experienced before, whenever anyone hears [...]

Something simple

eggs and rice

Sometimes I find it challenging to write something I want to share with you all. I’ll always share what I’m eating, how my workouts are going and how much I love miss G. But otherwise,  I’m just not that brave. It takes me a while to open up to people, to those that I have, [...]

Some days you might think I hate vegetables, because sadly, I hate to admit it, sometimes I don’t eat any. It really all depends on if I have them prepped or not. This past week I’ve cook about one different vegetable a day, which has really helped me eat my vegetables. The recipes below can [...]

The week isn’t even over and I’ve worked out 4 times. I did CrossFit 3 times and took a nice little run today. I have to admit, it feels good to be back. I was working out, but just not consistently. I’m also back to cooking and eating healthy (ish) So, I whipped up this [...]

Change

  Life is constantly changing, some of it’s slow and not so noticeable and some of it’s big and super noticeable. We are all growing and adapting to best fit into our environment. For me, change is often hard, sometimes its delayed and when all is done, usually it’s for the better.  Well, Sweet Cheeks [...]

  Sometimes when I cook, Tony will often say ” you know what would make this really good?” and I say “what?”, Tony then says: “lemon, mint and peppers”. So, today I share with you my mint pesto. I served it on chicken, but you could easily put it on lamb or pork, or use [...]
