North Carolina Weekend Adventures

welcome_to_north_carolina

Hello, my friends! As you know, Matt and I were in North Carolina this weekend for my grad school friend Jill’s wedding. It was so great to be back – it still feels like home there. If you’re new to the blog, I graduated with my Masters of Public Health in Nutrition from UNC Chapel Hill in December. Matt and I lived in the area for 2 years Continue Reading …

How Have You Been Making Time For Yourself Lately?

No matter how busy I get (see this post for why I’m so busy right now), there are three things I need to keep my sanity: At least 7 (but usually 8) hours of sleep per night. What would otherwise be a normal day can easily turn into a total meltdown if I don’t get enough sleep. Regular exercise (at least some sort of movement every day). Continue Reading …

Simple, Delicious Lunch

Good morning! Sometimes the most delicious meals are the most simple, don’t you think? Yesterday’s lunch hit the spot. I enjoyed a massive salad of mixed greens, green pepper, canned beets (my fave — not pickled, just regular), and avocado, topped with some cracked pepper and balsamic vinaigrette. Plus a whole wheat English muffin Continue Reading …

My Workouts This Week

On Sunday, I wrote on Twitter that I was scheduling my workouts for the week into my calendar.

We decided to go to another one of my local Chapel Hill favorites — Lime & Basil! Lime & Basil is a Vietnamese restaurant on Franklin Street — Continue Reading …

How do you fit in exercise on Thanksgiving?

Hello friends! I’m officially on Thanksgiving break! I got a TON of schoolwork done yesterday so with the exception of a project that I’m going to (hopefully) wrap up while on the plane today, I should be able to fully enjoy my break. Yay! I don’t fly off to Pittsburgh until later this afternoon, so I started my break with a relaxing Continue Reading …

The Last Warm Weather Run

Good morning! My Thursday began just like almost all other Thursday mornings this semester — with a run with my girl Elle. :) Thank god for running buddies — I would not have gotten up on my own this morning, but we had a great run once we were out there. Combining socializing with exercise is the best. It was a wet but warm morning — I Continue Reading …

Halloween Costumes & Murder Mysteries

Hello, hello! I hope all of you aren’t buried in snow! According to Weather.com, the north east is experiencing “Snowtober.” You’re so clever, Weather.com. No snow here — just some much colder weather! Matt and I decided to celebrate Halloween a few days early this year — we went to the Eve Ball put on by Franklin Street Yoga on Continue Reading …
