[Image source] I will never forget the day that I was interviewing for a summer position at a local YMCA. The two girls who were interviewing me were ‘camp leaders’, maybe a few years older than I was. I don’t know why, but I instantly got a bad vibe from them; they were harshly looking […]

A Perfect Day

IMG_6137

If you asked me what a perfect day would look like, yesterday was certainly it. My day started off with a 3 mile run followed by some core work, push-ups, and at-home yoga. I didn’t have much time, but I cranked out this well-rounded workout in 40 minutes. After showering and breakfast, Eric and I […]

Check out what arrived this week… 2.5 cubic yards of triple mix soil for the veggie garden. :) Thrilling, I know. After weeks of looking at different types of soils, I went with a triple mix from Van Beek’s. It’s made from composted manure, black loam, and sandy topsoil. I couldn’t find ‘certified’ organic anywhere, […]

Today was the first morning in 2 weeks I woke up without a sore throat! Holla. (literally). Right now I can swallow without any pain and it’s a MIRACLE. A bad flu really makes me appreciate when I am in good health I tell ya. I just need to get rid of this tickly cough […]

Goodbye April, Hello May

IMG_5107

Despite lingering throat soreness and a tickly cough that keeps me up in the night, I am feeling a bit better each day. I’d say I am about 80% healed. The flu just seems to be leaving my body very. very. slowly. My flu fighting plan includes: Juicing first thing every morning (ginger, lemon, grapefruit, […]

A Grain of Salt

IMG_7263

In my last post, I opened the floor to you to ask some questions about body-image, weight, and eating topics that you wanted to explore.
