The Choices We Make…

….add up.  In a major way.  I decided when I woke up this morning that I’d been feeling really lethargic and grumpy.  Then I tried to remember the last leafy greens I’d eaten.  It’s been a while.  I’ve been indulging in the holiday treats a bit too much.  Instead of getting a muffin at my favorite hippie cafe I got a carrot ginger soup.  Although it appears to have a little cream in it (it’s a bit sweeter than expected) I decided to eat half and call it a win. 

My roomie is studying to be a holistic health counselor and she was telling me about a conversation she had with another counselor about giving food too much power.  It’s just food.  Worrying about what I’ll eat everywhere I go is insane.  That being said, I don’t need to eat a piece of pumpkin bread every time I go into Starbucks, either.  I’m leaving for Cabo in three and a half weeks and I don’t want to feel like a beached whale the entire trip.  There’s only so much you can do in 3ish weeks, but whatever I can do I’m going to do. 

Here are a couple of things I’m loving on this wintry Wednesday.

1.  This article written by my good friend Bevin.  Beautiful words with a extremely important message. 

2.  This video sent to me by the Penn State Alumni Association.  Sap alert:  I cried. 

Wishing all of you a happy (and healthy) Wednesday!
