Happy Leap Day!

Today is February 29th, 2016! It’s late and I should go to bed (sleep plays a crucial role in your overall health you know), but I wanted to mark this day down. Happy Leap Day! I celebrated by going to the Grand Opening of the Starbucks on highstreet (Earl Grey tea latte with a Gluten-free hummus wrap).

I can’t be creative or clever tonight as I’m practically falling asleep at the keyboard, but I will say I’ve added 3 more countries to my “visited” list since I last posted, and I am learning more about health and fitness from a scientific standpoint. I am not where I need to be, and am suffering from a disappointing lack of exercises that I – with a torn back joint and Achilles tendonitios – can do. I’m going on vacation in 6 weeks and need to be bikini-ready. This should be a challenge.

Good news is I have an appointment with a nutritionist tomorrow morning so I should get a better idea of the extent of my gluten intolerance and what other foods I should or should not be eating.


A Belated Welcome to 2016

Hello 2016! Can’t believe I haven’t posted a single time since the New Year! Much has happened since my last post:

  1. New House: I moved! I love my new house and best of all it has a bigger kitchen ;) It also has more walking trails (which my pup is loving) and more space for things like yoga!
  2. New Places: More travel! I’ve another Germany trip to my passport and have a Copenhagen trip coming up. Eating gluten free while traveling is a little complicated, but getting less so. I can at least count on the hipster factor for making gluten free more accessible.
  3. New School: I’ve been accepted to my dream graduate program! Children’s Literature at the University of Cambridge!
  4. New Schedule: Due to #3, I’ll be quitting my job to be a full time student.
  5. New Doctor: I’ve starting going to an osteopath for my back. He’s been working on my torn joint to get the inflammation down. It may involve shots. Yikes!

In any case, January was a busy month! Here’s to a productive and healthy new year!
