Weekend

Hi guys! Monday already huh? This weekend was a really short and brief one for us because both Matt and I had to work for a large portion of it. Bummer, but gotta do what you gotta do! On Friday and Saturday, I spent from 8:30 to 4:30 at an intensive two day counseling skills workshop up in Bethesda, MD. The workshop, hosted by dietitian and Continue Reading …

Hey guys! I’m heading to an all-day training today (and tomorrow, too) on motivational interviewing (the approach I use with my AnneTheRD nutrition clients; it’s always good to brush up and also get continuing education credits towards maintaining my RD credential), so this will be quick!

My Favorite Podcasts

Hi friends! It’s been one of those days so far – you know the kind – basically a comedy of errors. Matt made it half way to the office before I realized he had taken my phone with him by accident, then Ashe threw up all over his car on his way back to bring me my phone (she was with him to go to doggy daycare, which is on his way to work), etc etc. Continue Reading …

Eats + Exercise

Exciting news: the humidity has finally broken! When our alarm went off this morning to walk the dogs before work, I was assuming we’d have another muggy morning awaiting us, so you can imagine my surprise when we walked outside and it was GORGEOUS – cool and crisp. What a treat! The dogs were just as excited as Matt and I were – everyone had more Continue Reading …

Cozy Weekend

Hey guys! Matt and I had a cozy, low key weekend, which was nice and much needed after a really busy work week! On Friday, we made a Sun Basket (<- affiliate link for 3 free meals) – a chicken and quinoa orzo dish with veggies. It was good, although I would have liked it better as a cold (vs. hot) salad, I think, because the weather is so hot Continue Reading …

Thoughts on Running and Pregnancy

You guys. IT’S SO HOT HERE. Even at 6 a.m. Part of me misses running and marathon training a lot… and part of me is like, wow, I’m really glad I’m not trying to do long runs in this heat and humidity like I was last year for the Marine Corps Marathon… I met my friend Sokphal this morning for an early walk – yes, I’ve officially switched from the Continue Reading …
