Day 91

Turmeric-Ginger Tonic with Chia Seeds


A day well spent at the Lincoln Science Center, enjoying a family membership gifted by my brother. I haven’t worked out since the Thursday before the holiday when I unintentionally boxed my knuckles into a bruised mess, but the boys are keeping me running, and today – although I was planning on working out tonight – I’m feeling spent. 

I must admit, my brain has been on a bit of a hiatus as well. I’m sure the uptick in evening smoke sessions has a little to do with it.

I guess that’s what the holidays are for, right? Rest. celebration. Loss of self-restraint.

Of course I’m not proud and also not happy with the way it makes me feel, physically. But I’m enjoying the break from the usual pace and will be refreshing my resolutions in the New Year like the rest of humanity.

Speaking of which, I’m super psyched. Husband bought me a fancy juicer for Christmas and I immediately went out and purchased way too much produce. First successful juice attempt DOWN. Recipe for the refreshing, not-too-sweet, juice below:

  • 6 apples
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • 6-8 celery stalks
  • 1 romaine heart

More drink inspiration, and a little something I plan to try out to help with anxiety in the new year.
