Thirsty Thursday #7

Hot Tea While visiting friends and family this holiday season, I couldn’t help but notice other’s drinking habits.  Some of my peeps carry coffee cups with them everywhere, filled with the high octane – caffeine filled — nectar of the gods.  Others buy flats and flats of bottled water and chug it by the gulp full. One of my husband’s grandmothers has a very neat habit — a cross between hydration and self care — nightly tea. Her favorite tea…

Who votes that we should ship regional cuisines all over the U.S. so we…

Tuesday Treat Day #7

Tuesday Treat Day #7

This week’s treat is a day at home — alone.   During the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy to get into the habit of putting others’ needs/agendas ahead of your own.  For most people, this is their day to day status quo — putting themselves last, forgetting to take care of themselves, etc…   I say, take a day for yourself.  Connect with yourself.  Treat yourself to a day all about you.   For me this meant…

Marathon Monday #7

Marathon Monday #7

To Run or not to run…   There’s plenty to distract me from running this time of year — festive but rich holiday foods drag me down, traveling wears me out, shorter days mean less daylight and visiting family and friends means more scheduling conflicts…   I’ve been struggling this training cycle about what to do — I want to achieve my goals but feel like it’s such a burden to lace up and go out.  Is this runner’s burn…

Thirsty Thursday

For this Thursday — I’m thirsty for your favorite holiday drinks.   Here’s a short list of mine: Peppermint Mocha Coffee — I’ve been adding Peppermint Mocha creamer to my morning coffee this week and OH BABY!  Is it good Bottled Water — we’re extra careful while on vacation since not everyone’s water supply has the same minerals/chemicals etc… from the tap.  We’re either drinking Bottled water or filtered water. Unsweetened iced tea — When I want something cold but…

What to Eat Wednesday #6

This week will be a super short post — since I’m miserable… Let me explain briefly — my stomach is so upset and bloated and gassy!   Traveling this week led to swollen feet and eating too much of the salty stuff.  Once we got to our destination, we overindulged in our favorite foods.  Yesterday, while trying to make an effort to “be good”, I had some raw veggies — including raw broccoli…   I have been miserable ever since….

Tuesday Treat Day #6

This week’s Treat Visiting family!   In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I often forget how fulfilling it is to sit and have a good visit with friends and family.  This time of year, I make an extra effort to visit with family that I normally only call once or twice a year.   These visits might include a meal or snack, playing a game, or even joining family members on an outing (movies are my favorite).  Anything…
