1. A big hello to any new readers out there! Thank you for stopping by!
To the other loyal 10 readers, thanks for coming back and here is the low-down on what is going on. Yesterday I was featured on the Washingtonian’s Well Being Blog. I had no idea that it was happening until Twitter and Facebook blew up and I checked in on my little blog. I was beyond excited. My co-workers must think I am a little nutty.
So to all you new folks, Knack for Nutrition is where I ramble about working out at crazy weird hours, training for a half-marathon, trying to lose weight, and my deep seeded hatred of the metro. Welcome
2. Last night, in celebration of a big day of weight loss and being featured in the Washingtonian’s blog, I went to Guapo’s in Shirlington for dinner. The irony of frequenting a Mexican restaurant to celebrate a weight loss is not lost on me. But I know that one meal does not make or break you. It’s every other decision you make throughout the day that add up to big changes.
To be fair, I had a salad. It was just that I was too busy munching on chips before it came to save my appetite for the healthy portion of the meal. Oh chips and guacamole, you get me every time.
I’m not fretting about it. I packed my lunch and laid out my gym clothes once I got home to make sure the damage wasn’t permanent.
3. On a completely unrelated note, I need to find a new author. You see, a couple of months ago I stumbled upon Philippa Gregory’s historical fiction novels and never looked back. I blew through no less than 15 books while commuting, trying to sleep, and ignoring chores.
My bookshelf is filling out nicely, but there is room for more. I am on my final book and I am ready for a “can’t put down” novel that leaves me praying for a sequel. Historical fiction is my favorite but I am certainly open minded. Anything to help pass the time on the metro!
