This is honestly what I see when I am confronted with those products. I don’t ever talk to people about it unless they honestly want to know why because I think a lot of people know and just choose to ignore. And I used to be one of them.

Anonymous asked: Are there any healthy vegan green shakes that actually taste good that you recommend?

I make my morning smoothie with a handful of mixed greens, one banana, some berries and almond milk. The green flavor is pretty masked by the fruit :)
I recommend playing around with flavors until you find something you like!

Anonymous asked: What state do you live in?

If you ask me off anon I will tell you privately. I try to be somewhat anonymous on tumblr :)

Hubby informed me yesterday that I have started to waddle a bit!

Lucky for him I was in a positive mood and felt happy about it ;)

It didn’t hurt that I asked him to hold a baby and he looked so good doing it!

Morning Tents by Oleg Grigoryev

This playful collection of photographs features one man’s view from the inside of a tent. Simply called Morning Views From the Tent, the inspirational travel series was created by photographer Oleg Grigoryev. Each image offers a unique glimpse of the Tajikistan landscape from the eyes of an adventurer traveling through the Fann Mountains.

Feeling better after a 4 mile hike :)

I’m in one of those annoyed moods. I miss doing things I used to do, namely running.

Is it the end of December yet?
I want to hold my healthy baby boy in my arms and not have to think about anything else for awhile.

And come mid-February, start jogging with him in the jogger stroller!

Get to know me 11 questions

I was tagged by productsofpoverty to complete 11 questions, here it goes:

What is one positive thing you’ve experienced within the past week?

I found out I am having a baby boy!  And had a fun gender (sex) reveal party for my family and friends :)

How do you practice self-care?

Before getting pregnant, it was definitely running.  Now I make sure not to work on weekends, answer work calls past 9pm and take naps when I need them.

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

I’d love to have dinner with my Nana.  She passed away when I was seven.  She had lung cancer and diabetes.  She was only 54.  

Imagine you had the ability to go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice. What would you say to your past self?

WORRY LESS!!  I have spent so much time worrying about things that did not happen or worrying about what other people thought of me.  Once I started to practice being in the present moment and accepting things as they are, I have felt much more peaceful.

What is one thing you hope to accomplish by the end of 2014?

I really would like to accomplish giving birth naturally and safely to my son :)  Last year I did my first marathon and got my MSW.  I’m wondering which is going to be harder-those or labor!

How do you feel about the ALS ice bucket challenge?

I’m glad it raised money for a good cause and feel like it is now a good time to start donating to other causes as well.  

If your life had a theme song, what would it be?

This is a hard one…I think Bon Jovi, “It’s my life”  It is one of my favorite songs and I love the positive message of living while your alive-but also that it isn’t about being reckless. Oh and I love Bon Jovi!

You have the opportunity to recommend one show you feel I should be streaming through Netflix. What is it and why should I be watching it?

All the Law and Orders and Star Trek TNG.  Law and Order has always been my favorite even though they can be predictable.  Star Trek TNG is interesting even if you aren’t a sci-fi fan.  I like how they have evolved to be kinder and you notice this through the policies they have and some of the various species they encounter.

What is your spirit animal?

Well-when I ran my marathon my spirit animal was a bouncing baby beefalo named Whimsy.  (A beefalo is half cow half buffalo-they are real)  I made her up on one of my long training runs probably when I was getting dehydrated.

If you had the ability to create a new policy or law, what would it be?

This one is difficult because I think there should be many new policies and laws!  One that comes to mind right away is lowering sentence times for non-violent criminals.  It sickens me that someone transporting drugs to pay for their critically ill son ends up spending life in prison!  See for yourself:

Describe your favorite article of clothing.
