Well this felt like a whirl-wind week! Even though I had Monday off, I felt like I was go-go-go all week. I feel like I have a ton of things to get done so I am really glad I have this extra day on Friday to do just that! 2 weeks down…a lot more to go! At least I made it successfully through my first lab, recited that poem from memorization (it was nothing compared to reciting the first 2 pages of The Aeneid…in Latin), and did a random presentation in one of my classes. But this is only the beginning! Onward with more work!
And hasn’t the weather been so wacky? Well it has in DC! It’s cold, but not too cold, it even snowed for a few hours on Wednesday, but then warmed up to 50 the next day. They say it will be sunny today, snow tomorrow, and sunny and 50 again Sunday. I never know what to expect! Not complaining though! It is so much better then NJ if I were home! But one thing I could do without…wind. Wind is no good!
So Happy Friday! Rest, relax, move, eat well, and get ready to enjoy your last week of the New Year! XOXO
Tuesday: Black Garlic Shishito Verde Chicken

This isn’t one of those posts. It’s just a reminder that it really is about nutrition.
I think adding in a lot more healthy fats to my diet has really changed my health for the better over the past few years!
I almost starting crying reading this. Allergies are SO real. I had this happen to me when I was tested at the allergist actually…

We all have (or will) encounter these.
Creativity, ideas, blogging, writing, we will always have “similar” and the same ideas.
Make sure these do not apply to you!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ My buissness cards arrived! I feel so badass now! AND my dad got Strength and Sunshine t-shirts made! So much SS love! My dad wants me to sell them on the blog, haha! Would you buy an SS shirt? 😉 (Yes, and I failed at finding time to snap pictures of the business cards and shirts…I’ll show you next week!)
+ I ran in the rain last Sunday….and the soggy 6.40 miles were pretty awesome non-the-less!
