First and foremost-check out my giveaway! Still a few days left to enter!

Second. Still playing a bit of catch up. Don’t worry, we’ll be all up to date soon!

So, when I rejoined my gym for break, they really pushed their fitness assessment, which was a 1 on 1 with a trainer (free!). I figured, why not? So I went in. We ended up mostly doing mobility stuff and going over what I should be doing. It made me realize how much I’ve been slacking off in that department lately! A couple of years ago, I went to yoga regularly and did all the rolling/active stretching before working out with my trainer, but MAN I need to get back into tat! This was a good reminder!

So-food. Friday night I went to my dad’s company Christmas party. Fun fact-I’ve been to more company Christmas parties than anyone else there, my dad and employees included.

But hey, when there is quality food involved, I’m not one to turn it down!


Course 1: salad.


Course 2: salmon. Lemon dill sauce, green beans, mashed potatoes. I don’t generally like salmon (like in the dining hall) and I think it’s because the only time I ever really have salmon is at really fancy restaurants where it is cooked 100% perfectly. And other salmon just seems so much less good. We NEVER have had salmon at home, so I guess I’m spoiled on the rare occasion I do go out and get it?


Dessert: chocolate pot de creme. Seriously, so good. My dad kept calling it “chocolate pudding” which drove me crazy because this is so much higher quality than that. But yes, I guess it is kind of like chocolate pudding…


Dinner from a couple of nights ago. Guys-call me crazy, but I don’t really like pizza. My mom’s veggie pizza was better, but I’m just not a pizza person, and if I do have it, I’m really particular. I like the thin crust style with a very particular flavor. I know, weird, right?


Yesterday morning I was supposed to shadow at my potential future profession, but it was a slow day so they told me to come back. Instead, I got coffee with my mom and then spent the rest of the morning doing Christmas shopping. I THINK I’m done but I feel like I’m forgetting something…anyways, I stopped at Trader Joe’s for this Southwest salad in the process!

And NOW we’re caught up!

    That salmon looks incredible! I love pizza because I love cheese but a grilled cheese sandwich goes in for the win! 🙂

    Fitness assessment sounds cool! Did they only make you do mobility stuff? If they did that to me, I would absolutely fail!!

      That’s really only what we worked on since I have pretty terrible mobility!
