Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a busy weekend! Not as busy as some, but still busier than others. We went to a block party on Saturday where Brian’s old band was playing. I hadn’t seen them in 6 months, so that was fun. A friend of Brian’s was actually in charge of… Continue reading Block parties and taco trucks
Hey guys! I'm back with more recipes! Again, sticking to simplicity, I used the following ingredients: • Ground Turkey, 85% lean • Romaine lettuce • Queso fresco • Low sodium canned black beans • Low sodium taco seasoning This is a pretty easy one to follow and probably doesn't require a blog post! I just… Continue reading Meal Prep Sunday: Taco salad
Hey everyone! I'm having a very low-key night at home. I donated plasma today, so I'm sucking on Brach's hard candies and lying on the couch. (When did I turn 90?!) We had baked chicken and zucchini/squash for dinner, and I had one chicken breast left to meal prep with! Here what I made for… Continue reading My healthy spaghetti alternative
Good morning and Happy Friday! Fun Fact Friday: My favorite dessert is chocolate lava cake. I could truly live on them, you know, if they had more nutrients and weren’t so full of sugar. Maybe I should say that my heart could live on them; my body, not so much. I worked at Des Moines… Continue reading The legacy of the chocolate lava cake
I never thought I'd hear myself say that. My company is working with a company called Healthy Wage to host a healthy weight loss challenge. You pay $70.00 and, if you lose 10% of your body weight, you get your money back. I really wanted to join, didn't at all want to pay the $70.00,… Continue reading Sunday’s are for… the gym?
I feel lucky, every single day, to be where I am right now. We all have a past. I have demons; I have skeletons in my closet. Some of the people I chose to let in to my life, and some of the choices I made... I could have been given less of a chance… Continue reading There was always a light.
The first bike rides of the season took place this weekend. Finally! I've been waiting and waiting for it to be nice enough. We were planning on biking to the Valley Junction Farmer's Market last Thursday, but, of course, we got the worst thunderstorm of the season. Funnel clouds, winds up to 30 mph, rain,… Continue reading The plasma donation and the 30 mile bike ride.
I almost pass out a lot. Like, a lot. Probably once a month, and it's different every time. Once a month may not sound like a "very often" thing... until it's happening to you, and all you can think is "Not again, not again." I don't know why it happens. I haven't been able to… Continue reading
There's nothing more humbling than the ocean. To think that we get to live in this world and admire all of this is amazing to me. I'm sitting ocean-side in South Carolina, looking out from my balcony on the 17th floor of the building, and you can see until the end of the world. There… Continue reading
