I'm all about that zucchini season.. but WTF do you do with it? Well let me SHOW YOU silly! And if you don't want yours? Hand it over!
I've been seeing these topics floating around online - various blogs, articles and podcasts. And after listening to the JJ Virgin podcast this morning I wanted to share and get YOUR thoughts too! A lot of these things are "hush hush" like HELLO don't TALK about your lady friend right? that's so personal! - Well hello...I'm a nurse and poop and stuff is usually just lunch talk.. ha! ANYWAY! on to the good stuff.
Just had to prove that sometimes I wear some make up and some real clothes...aka not workout clothes or sweatpants or scrubs!
This weekend involved some meal prepping! I was on call without an oven so why the heck not right? IMPROVISE and i'm pumped to show you all the goodness that went down in my kitchen!
What I'm currently into this week in all aspects of life.
gosh i'm a dork...those insta filters though! ha! anyone else in LOVE with instagram stories? SERIOUSLY. I swear the pictures I can take for those are SO MUCH clearer! As you can see I'm still loving my outdoor early morning driveway workouts! And now I'm doing something ELSE I swear I would NEVER do..
I'm going back to school.
I'm on day 13 into a 30 day challenge I created for myself - I'm definitely a perfectionist that is determined to OVERCOME - It's time to turn those so called "flaws" and weaknesses and just ADMIT to them. Then I can realize that maybe they are actually personal strengths.
recap of the past week in a few words per picture! NOLA adventures, eats, moves, nurse life and such
So many people this week have told you - "You are so brave for traveling on your own. I could NEVER do that!" Which is so funny to me because I NEVER used to travel and the thought of airplanes, airports and going it alone was TERRIFYING to me. Yes...here I am.
But I have to confess. I'm really not that brave.
I never used to travel. Like...at all. A trip when growing up was car trip with my mom and my dad. I only recall flying ONCE while growing up and I was three years old. So ... honestly I don't remember! We did make a trip to Disney World when I was in third grade and you guessed it - we drove. THREE days. Long days. Please remember that I grew up in Minnesota. Florida isn't exactly a day trip...
In the past few years I have become much braver - I've been to Nashville, Dallas x 2, Punta Cana, Arizona and now New Orleans - So I'm pretty sure I've traveled more in the past three years than I have in the 20 some years before that! So what has changed...
and no this isn't a post to make you feel bad or shameful for all of those fourth of July treats and cocktails! Because if you know me at all ... you know I love those too!
I've recently been diving into more and more research on brain health and gut health and it amazes me how intertwined they are! I'm making my way through this book by neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter called Brain Maker - and although it's heavily science based...I'm really having hard time putting it down! He discusses various nutritional and environmental factors that either help or hurt your brain and gut health - I thought I would just mention one common theme found ALL over in the book...Sugar.
