Some things I’ve been liking lately.
1. Trying different coffee.
All the coffee! Allegro Coffee sent me some coffee to sample and it’s delicious. We’ve been having fun playing around with our espresso makers. I’ve also been having more decaf coffee lately, because I don’t like feeling like I HAVE to have coffee in the morning. I enjoy the taste of coffee more than I like the coffee buzz. I wish coffee was naturally caffeine free.
2. Seeing photos of my family in Italy.
My parents, 2 sisters, and Marco are spending a couple weeks in Italy with Marco’s family. Quinn sent me this photo of her holding Layne & Marco’s niece. OMGSH so cute! Andrew and I were bummed to miss out on this trip, but we have a lot (in my opinion) of traveling coming up this year and it was hard in terms of vacation time to take a 2 week vacation right at the start of the year.
3. Morningstar‘s breakfast biscuit sandwiches + their vanilla lattes.
If you live in Houston or ever visit Houston, go to Morningstar and order just this! The biscuit is insanely yummy and the vanilla latte is velvety smooth and perfectly sweet.
4. My girls!
I got to spend the beginning of the weekend with two of my great friends. These two were my college roommates/bridesmaids. Love them (and their goofy/ridiculous husbands in the background) so much. We already planned our next get together for the end of January. I can’t see them enough.
Andrew and I frequent the nearby taco place when I work late on Thursdays. Black bean + chicken nachos for me with a bubbly diet coke.
I posted this on IG, but I’ve also been loving making these Wheat Thins into Nachos. Topped with Wholly Guacamole. You have to eat them a bit quickly or else the Wheat Thins get a soggy!
6. Fav snack lately.
Chocolate covered pretzels & 2% milk.
7. IG dinner inspiration.
I’m using this photo for inspiration for one of our dinners this week. Can’t wait to crepe it up!
8. Switching up my movement.
After using ClassPass for awhile now, I’ve decided to stop ClassPass and go only to Big Yoga. I’ve really fallen in love with this place and I’m glad ClassPass introduced me to them. I feel a lot of emotion in their classes and I’m excited to keep growing my yoga practice. I was at a more gentle yoga studio for about a year (YogaOne, if you’re a Houstonian!) and they did an excellent job of teaching me the basics…or I choose to take their more basic classes, I guess. Now I’m ready to keep expanding my practice in a different environment.
9. Some inspirational words.
The below is how I feel about my intuitive eating, diet mentality and HAES experiences. Now that I’ve been awoken to the wonder and awe and fabulousness of intuitive eating, I’ve changed and it feels great.
The below is a good reminder for me, a constant worrier. Jess Lively said onetime on her podcast that our greatest addiction is overthinking. Omgsh I can so relate to that.
