Hello! As the weekend quickly came and gone, the excitement of the school year ending grew more and more. Unfortunately though, my vegetarian challenge became less and less apparent and I happened to slip up on some buffalo wings. It was a bummer […]
Month: April 2018
Hello! As we have been drawn closer and closer to believing that love is dead through watching celebrities relationships explode in their faces, we sometimes come to wonder if love still exists. The first offense was the end of a perfect marriage: the split between […]
Eating unhealthy, comfort food becomes a ritual while in hibernation. I’ve realized that my diet is kicking me in the butt and is in need of a serious change. As of today, I will be going vegetarian for the next month to see what bad food habits I can kick.
Not only does this mean that I will be kicking meat out of my life, but I will be eating better all around. (R.I.P all of the wonderful junk food that is living in my drawers.)
As someone who sometimes eats chips for breakfast, this won’t be a cakewalk for me. Some challenges that I presume will come my way are:
- Getting too lazy to make/get myself the healthier option.
- Going out to eat.
- Making sure I am getting enough nutrients in the foods that I will be eating.
- Resorting to only Hot Pockets and other forms of unhealthy, meatless food aka “taking the easy way out.”
As I am very sure there are more struggles I will come to face, there are also some really great benefits to this challenge. I am excited to explore new foods, experiment with different recipes, and see how my body changes as I cut certain foods out of my diet. (Fingers crossed for that good, good clear skin.)
Buckle up and wish me luck for the next month as I abandon the foods I love and have become dependent on. I am excited to see what new foods I will turn to by the end of this challenge.
Below I’ve linked some recipes that I am super excited to try out!
April showers bring May flowers? Do these showers include snow showers that are said to promise nearly a foot of snow? Apparently they do. But what is really making these flakes less and less tolerable is that a mere 24 hours ago, I was sitting on a beach watching dolphins play in the ocean as the kid next to us threw a can of sunscreen at his brother. Ahhh, vacation.
The beautiful Rosemary Beach/Seacrest Beach area is one of the most magical places I have ever visited. Filled with stunning architecture, white beaches, and crystal clear water. You’ll have to look twice to believe the beauty before your eyes.
The place that we stayed at was located just a short walk away from the beach. It was a delightful yellow home filled with windows allowing us some gnarly ocean views. It included 2 porches that made for splendid brunches and sunset watching. The boardwalk to the beach was surrounded by beautiful greenery that lead to a sea of blue.
We were also lucky enough to have finessed our way to gaining access to the gate code of the rooftop pool located next door. This was a fantastic addition as the sun went down and we continued to light it up. Coming from Wisconsin, we aim to get as much vitamin D as humanly possible so setting us up four stories closer to our big star was an opportunity we weren’t going to live without. Us Sconnies take our sun time into full-send mode before we have to head back up to the tundra.
Alas, all good things truly come to end. I’ll be thinking of my fam that will be looking at these lovely views for the rest of the week as I continue to glance outside to check out the progress in snow accumulation. Can’t wait to unpack those snow pants I so confidently put away for the season! But not to worry, I will be back, relaxing on a beach sooner than you’d think.
