Life has been pretty much the same around these parts as of late. January is the coldest month of the year in northern New Hampshire and staying warm inside seems like safest bet. My ventures outside the home are limited and consist of going to work, going to the store, bringing Damien to practice and games (yes we are still at it because Damien ended up making the fifth grade boys travel team. This means will be at it till March). I try to limit our time exposed to the cold, frigged air. I've said this many times before, I truly despise the cold weather. I find it extremely hard to endure, and have much less tolerance for it the older I get. I have not yet (besides getting our Christmas tree) suited Amar'e up and let her play in the snow. I do plan on doing this, but not in January because it is usually in the single digits most days, if not below zero. Luckily for Amar'e and I, we will be getting a little break from this cold existence this weekend because we will be heading south to sunny Florida! Yay! This is going to be a much needed escape from the cold weather. I am so excited to visit with family I haven't seen in years!
I have been exploring something new while I have been stuck in the house...juicing! I didn't think that I would love it so much. I have been juicing quiet a bit since I started about a week, or so, ago. I have also been doing my insanity workouts religiously. With the combination of both of these things, I have been feeling pretty darn good. I feel lighter, have more energy, have been sleeping great! I plan on juicing until I leave for Florida!
Here is what this all looks like:
Kale, Spinach, Cucumber, Celery, Lemon, Carrot, and Parsley.Yummy, yummy, yummy. I seriously can't get enough. I would love some juice recipes! If you juice and have a good recipe and would like to share it with me, leave it in the comments below. :)
I am not the only one who enjoys the juice.
Amar'e has been using the wood veggies she got for Christmas to make me tons of great soups!
Sporting the new bib!
Another adventure of cooking with our friend Kliff. Ok it's more like Kliff cooking and I'm watching (or taking pictures).
Hanging out with little friends...making messes. So much fun!
Great way to end a weekend....green bean casserole anyone?
What have you been up to lately?
