2016

So, it’s safe to say that I’m not the best at regular blogging. 🙂

A quick catch-up: Hubby and I moved to northern California, and I’m currenty teaching 1st grade math at a charter school! We’re planning on moving to San Diego at the end of this school year, so the job search will be on again soon.

Basically, 2015 came and went, and with it, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reevaluating my life lately. Reprioritizing, you could say. Thinking a lot about value-added relationships in my life and relationships that don’t bring anything to my life. Life is short and hard and weird, and I want to spend time with people that make me happy.

I’ve also been looking back on my eating and exercise habits that really fell by the wayside. My work hours are much longer than in the past, so I’m BEAT by time I get home. Plus, ever since J and I started dating, his work hours were really intense and we never saw each other. Now we get to spend a ton of time together, and I really want to take advantage of that. Because of family illness, J’s back in MD for a month, so my goal (to keep myself occupied and sane while he’s gone) is to get my healthy habits back on track!

I’m going back to a vegan/vegetarian diet as of today, and am hoping to find the time to blog some great recipes again. I’m also planning on doing a Bikram yoga challenge. The longest challenge that I’ve done in the past was either a 21 day or 30 day challenge (can’t remember 🙂 ) , so that’ll be my initial goal, although my ultimate goal is completing a 60 day challenge. Scheduling is such a pain, which is part of my excuse, but I’m going to make it a priority, like a doctor’s appointment. My health and stress levels depend on it!

Anyway, so here’s what I made for post-workout din tonight:

Chickpeas, Tomatoes, Garlic and Rainbow Chard

Sauteed some garlic in coconut oil, threw in chickpeas and diced tomatoes, then tossed the rainbow chard in. Super easy, healthy and filling!

Cheers to a new year and improving ourselves!
