Color Explosion

Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying the start of your Easter Weekend. Color explosion! It makes me happy. It’s Spring Break season and a time to take a little time off to enjoy some rest and relaxation. We spent some family time in Las Vegas this week.

Hula hips

First, thank you for all the get well wishes from the last post. My eyes are doing much better. It just a matter of time before my cornea heals completely. My nephew Jonah turned 2 weeks old yesterday. He makes a lot of facial expressions already and I try to capture it each time I […]

Energy Oat Bars

Since we had rain all weekend long, I welcomed the time spent indoors. Besides going to the gym in the morning, I didn’t leave the house or changed from my lounge wear for a whole day. Instead of watching movies all day long, which I love to do on lazy days, I baked and cooked […]

A Day in the Wild – Part I

Even for someone who enjoys working out, it was still hard to get back into my workout routine after being away from the gym for a week or so while I was sick. I eased into my workout by doing light cardio on alternating days. Once I was feeling well enough to take the intensity […]

My comfort foods + Wedding Diary Update

Ever since Monday, I haven’t been feeling well. My beverage of choice has been fresh ginger tea with honey. Sometimes I make it really strong and it’s spicy, sometimes a little light and with more honey. I’ve also been craving comfort food. Chocolate gives me comfort.

Mango Coconut Tropical Shake

Last night, Chris and I went to his work event at the aquarium. It was windy and raining the whole night so we were wearing our rainy day clothes. We were served catered Italian food for dinner and we dined next to the fishes. Attending events at the aquarium is fun because we get to […]

Pretzel Treats & Baby Shower Prep

To keep my workout from being boring, I am always looking for new cardio routines. I’ll try them at the gym and will repeat the ones I love. Currently,I have about four HIIT workouts that I’ve printed and keep in my gym bag. I found a few workouts from a recent Shape magazine, the one where […]

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes

I am a morning person. I like waking up early and getting a lot of things accomplished before I head out the door for work. There’s nothing like a hot cup of tea or coffee and a tasty breakfast plate that gets me excited to start my day. I had a great start to my […]
