Turning 32 and Adult Drinking Habits (TOL)

I always get excited when I start my Thinking Out Loud posts because it means the weekend is in sight! -It reminds me of college when I used to go out on Thursday nights and convinced myself that it was the start of the weekend. It always made for a struggle on Friday but it […]

WIAW: Keeping It Simple

Lately I have been all about keeping my meals simple. This means leftovers, making recipes I am familiar with or that seem easy, and preparing foods on the weekends, like my on-the-go breakfasts. I think that I am getting to the point in training where I don’t have the energy to do anything extra, yet I […]
