Last Day at Wellness Corporate Solutions!

Good morning and happy Friday! Mine is off to a great start — it’s a beautiful day and I had an early a.m. walking date this morning with my friend Heidi! She lives nearby so we met between our places at 6:30 a.m. and walked for an hour; we included a stop at Starbucks as part of our walk. ;) Perfect Friday treat!


A tip for Starbucks: I love their flavored lattes but they usually put 3 full pumps of the sugary syrup in them and that induces a) a stomachache, or b) a sugar coma. Instead, I order a plain skim latte and ask for a tiny half pump of my favorite syrup — today’s choice was pumpkin spice. It gives it just a hint of sweetness and flavor without overdoing it. Perfect! Try it next time you go. :)

I’m heading off to work in a few minutes — today is my last day of my mini-3 week dietetic internship with Wellness Corporate Solutions! I’ve had a great experience with them. On Wednesday this week, I worked at a breast cancer awareness month themed health fair at the Discovery Channel offices up in Silver Spring, MD. It was fun!

I was back in the office yesterday and have been working on some nutrition related presentations for the team to have on hand as needed.


I packed clothes yesterday with plans to go to yoga after work since it was rainy and gross out, only to have the weather clear up and be beautiful by late afternoon! A few of the women from the office (including the senior VP!) go running together after work on Monday and Thursday nights, so I decided to join them last minute. I didn’t have shoes or socks with me but was luckily able to borrow some. :) I didn’t know Under Armour made sneakers — these were really comfortable!


We had a fun run along the C&O Canal near the office. My favorite!



We covered about 4 miles total with some walking, some sprinting, and some very steep uphill action.



I wore my yoga outfit since I didn’t have anything else with me. It worked! :)


Isn’t the shirt cute? My friends at New Balance sent it to me to try out — it’s from their new line of yoga-inspired clothing. The clothes from it are SO SOFT and comfortable! It was just as comfy to run in as I’m sure it will be to do yoga in. :)


Fun Thursday night! :) It was so fun to run with the group — way better than coming home and running alone would have been, or going to yoga when it was so gorgeous out!

Anyway — off to work I go! I’m taking the next 2 weeks off from internships (and will just work later into November than my classmates) so that I can do all the last minute wedding planning next week, and the week after the wedding, Matt and I are taking a mini-honeymoon for a few nights. We’re waiting to take our real honeymoon until December so I’ll be done with grad school.

Have a great Friday, everyone!

    You seem so calm leading up to the wedding :-) Good for you! I think I would be a lot more neurotic! Have an amazing weekend; I can’t wait to see pictures!

      I’m not worried about the wedding (just excited!) but have definitely been frazzled with how busy I am (blog + full time internship + wedding planning + grad school = AHHH!!!)… yesterday I only shaved one leg in the shower and didn’t realize it til I got to work, lol.

    I definitely don’t understand why 3 pumps are required in a tall latte either. One is PLEANTy and maybe even a little too much. I might be asking for a 1/2 pump next time too. Great tip! Have a great weekend girl.

    Have a great last day of work, Anne! And thanks for the Starbucks tip. I’ve been getting soy lattes a lot lately, and next time, I’ll try your version. :)

    I love running along the C&O Canal [when it isn’t hot, humid, and buggy :P]! Enjoy the time off, I wish I had taken a week or two off leading up to our big day… No matter how prepared you think you are, or actually are, there are always those last minute little things that need attention!

    The shirt is cute!

    What a beautiful place to run! I noticed the parks system here has finally extended a trail they have been working on for years. I cannot wait to try it out! (Just waiting for the okay from my dr!)

    Yippie. Next Saturday and you will be Mrs. ?????? Yeah.
    Well, I am getting my yearly mammogram on the 10th and regarding Starbucks. Being a diabetic I choose the tall skinny vanilla latte. 19 grams of carbs. I count carbs, fat, calories.This drink is permissible for diabetics.Have a great Friday Anne.
