Hello, hello! What an interesting start to the week. We'll chalk up the last few days as...astonishing, heartbreaking, and equally sentimental around the world. On a more personal note, gusty winds in Denver left us without power for over 12 hours yesterday — eek!
HAPPY TUESDAY! HAPPY APRIL! HAPPY SPRING! The past few weeks, I've posted my "What I Ate This Week" on a Monday, but I had a special post lined up for yesterday — a vulnerable, honest re-telling of my relationship with exercise.
My relationship with exercise has changed a lot over the course of my life. I went from an intuitive exerciser, to a rigid (read: daily) exerciser, back to a mostly intuitive exerciser. This journey has taken me a long, long time — and, I know it's far from over.
Happy Monday, people! I hope you all had a relaxing, productive, and / or historical weekend. My sister was in town, so we spent the weekend cruising around Denver, soaking up the sunshine (YAY SPRING!), and eating lots of good food.
And just like that, it's March. Practically MID-MARCH! Time is flying. And appropriately, I hit the ground running at the beginning of the month. So, if we were chatting over a cup of coffee, I'd have a few updates for you.
I have such a love / hate relationship with Colorado this time of year. Come February, we're spoiled with random days of 65 and sunny (hurry up, spring!), followed by 12 degrees and a literal snow globe.
And just like that, it's Monday. Monday at 5:08 pm to be exact. I'm keeping this short and sweet today because I still have client work to catch up on, emails to answer, dinner to make, and the Olympics to watch!
Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you had a relaxing weekend (Super Bowl and all). I was in the Bay Area over the weekend, celebrating a friend's baby shower, getting work done, and spending quality time with my parents.
It's been over a month since I lasted posted here — but, for good reason. First and foremost, I was enjoying the holidays with my family. I spent as little time on my computer, except for freelance work and health coaching clients. Secondly, I was traveling quite a bit!
When it comes to breakfast, I'm a creature of habit. It depends on the season, but once I get on a ________ (smoothie, eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.) kick, the habit stays. That is, until my cravings change. As of late, that's meant pancakes for breakfast.
As the temperatures drop and the holiday season picks up, you’ll likely find your immune system take a hit. Between the travel, the sugar, and spending time with your extended family members, you’re much more susceptible to catching a cold, feeling sluggish, or feeling dehydrated at the end of the day.
I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is one week away—I swear it was just September a few days ago. But, no complaints. I love this month. Even though the days are shorter, the skies are still blue and winter hasn't quite made her appearance.
Hi, friends! I just realized that the last recipe I posted on my blog was for cookies. Oops. But, I've been in a baking mood lately. It's a therapeutic break from work (especially since I'm working from home most days). So, I hope you don't mind :)
Weekend recap #3....coming to you on a Wednesday (because my time management skills are anything but impressive right now). As some of you know, I left my full-time job last week. This probably deserves a post all its own. But the gist is that it was a long time coming.
My parents have always cultivated the most beautiful backyard. The kind that feels more like a sanctuary than an array of random plants. I'm not entirely sure where my dad got his green thumb from, but I'm fairly certain he was horticulturist in his past life.
Happy Monday, friends! I just ran out to grab some lunch, and now I'm bundled up at my desk. It's freezing outside. We're talking a chilly 30 degrees—unlike yesterday's 70+ and sunny weather. But, that's Colorado for you. For those of you who live in Denver, you know that fall has arrived.
Happy Tuesday, friends! I want to start a new series on the blog where I recap my weekends—thoughts? I always love reading through other bloggers' weekend recaps. So, maybe I'll start doing the same. Plus, it sheds light onto life beyond a simple recipe or two.
