Good morning, friends! You know what I’m loving lately? How cute workout gear is nowadays.

Farewell, CrossFit Dupont!

Last night Matt and I went to our final class at CrossFit Dupont! I’m sad to say they will be closing their doors at the end of the week – they’re in the heart of Dupont Circle and I guess their lease was up and they weren’t able to renew for a reasonable rate. Bummer! They had a big crowd for every class we went to so I’m sure a lot of Continue Reading …

There’s nothing Continue Reading …

Hello friends! You know what being back to full time interning again means… packed lunches! Yesterday while I was eating breakfast and getting ready, I cooked a big batch of quinoa to eat throughout the week. For lunch, I threw 1/2 cup of the cooked quinoa and 1/2 cup of cannellini beans (canned – drained/rinsed) on top of some raw spinach. Continue Reading …
