And … Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: Ludington Girls Trip Edition
I will be honest. The first time that I tried overnight oats, I was not impressed. I really wanted to like them because I knew that I could make a batch and have breakfast for a few days, which is huge for someone who likes to sleep in like I do! I don't remember what … Continue reading Tried It Tuesday: Overnight Oatmeal
Wednesdays for some reason always seem to be my hectic days. With my new job I work 10 hour days, and on Wednesdays I usually work a late day - so I work from 9:30am-8pm.

There are days when I say critical things about myself and I get down on myself for not eating right or exercising enough. And as a dietitian I should be a better role model to the world... but lately life … Continue reading Keeping It Real: Why My Body Is Awesome!
One thing I love about the MyFitnessPal app on my phone is that I can look at my overall progress a week at a time. The thing about good nutrition and healthy living is that it is all about averages. Every day isn't going to be perfect, and it doesn't have to be in order … Continue reading Weekly Wrap Up #1
One thing that I love about weekends is the ability to whip up a more complex breakfast than I do during the weekdays. Let's be honest - I like to sleep in. I am not an early riser. I don't leave myself a lot of time in the mornings before work to make a great … Continue reading Breakfast Fun!
Well, this is embarrassing. I had Wednesday off this week. I spent the entire day doing chores around the house - I cleaned my kitchen, dining area, and bathroom. I made a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, and planned to blog about it on Wednesday. But... by the end of my busy, productive day off, not … Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday #5
