It’s Time to Talk About {Women’s} Locker Room Talk

“I wish I could be as skinny as her.”

“I hate my belly.”

“I need to wire my mouth shut.”

“I’ll never have enough willpower, I like food too much.”

These are just a few of the many things I’ve overheard adult women saying in fitness club locker rooms over the past couple of months. Continue reading

24 Hours in Milan

The posts you’ve all been waiting for are finally here! I am so excited to relive my trips through these posts that I will get right to it. Our trip began in Milan (after a long layover exploring Dusseldorf), and then we traveled to Venice, Florence, and Rome. I originally was only going to review the trip in two posts, but I ended up giving so much detail that I decided each city would get their own! There was so much to do, see and eat! I will post a review as well of our layovers in Dusseldorf and where to explore if you have a few hours to leave the airport.

If you’re torn about traveling to Italy in the winter months, don’t be. I highly recommend going right after Christmas though, so that you can enjoy all of the gorgeous decor! Continue reading

We here in the Jones household are big fans of Mexican food. Nachos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, Mexican salads, and of course margaritas, are on the regular rotation whether out and about or in the comfort of our casa. Tim’s homemade salsa and my guacamole are constant staples in our home to add to any dish, Mexican or not. Our love for jalapenos and cilantro is evidenced by this past weekend’s salsa consumption. Tim made a double batch Continue reading

We were traveling via the Philadelphia Eagles so, while I couldn’t be picky and choosy about my foodie Houston experiences, I can’t say I was disappointed!  I am also exciting to highlight that even when the food isn’t up to you and you are traveling, you can still enjoy yourself and get plenty of veggies in!

Rosemary Split Pea Potato Salad 

Disclosure: By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Potatoes USA and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

I’ve decided to dedicate this recipe to my Mom as an early birthday present (send her a HBD message on Sunday – and yes I got her something else). It’s a rosemary packed post-workout potato dish. Her name is Rosemary, she is killing it with her running, and she is probably the reason why I love potatoes so much! Continue reading

What to Drink if You Don’t Like Water + Liquid and Leaf Giveaway

While I crave optimal hydration, I consistently hear when educating on it’s benefits that people don’t know what to do because they “hate water”. The first I’d heard of anyone ever disliking water was in college. My friend, a swimmer on the team too, was very open about her dislike for this necessary nutrient and satisfying beverage. Then, I couldn’t fathom making it through a day without adequate water, but over the years I have developed a list of “go-to” alternatives to plain water for those of you that get bored with the beverage.
