Reflecting on this last week, it was one filled with some really positive wellness choices and gains.
It was filled with some great workouts, clean eating, self reflection time, my first acupuncture session, some much needed rest and time filled catching up with loved ones. I even had a much needed vision board session to help set some plans and goals as I head into this new season.
One wellness highlight for me this week came in the most unlikely place – the kickoff to the college football season. My husband and I are huge sports fans. Sitting down to watch college football games is one of the ways we connect and spend time together each fall. And these gamedays for us usually involve getting some takeout pizza or heading to a restaurant/bar to eat greasy tailgate-like food. Now although this is okay once in a while, this year I am just looking to reshape this gameday tradition for us. So I decided this past weekend to make a healthy and completely from scratch gameday meal (picture below). It turned out amazing and after I ate I didn’t feel like I had the itis or needed to go for a run. Creating healthy gameday meals is a tradition I very much look forward to this football season.
(Gameday Menu: The main dish was made-from-scratch organic turkey meatballs and tomato sauce created with vegetables from the farm. Dish was topped with organic cheese. Garlic lemon organic green beans was the side dish. To drink I exchanged my old favorite hard cider with my new favorite Kevita Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic. The whole thing turned out amazing. Definitely a wellness win for me this week.)
