Let’s Get Updated

16 Jan

Here it is, another Wednesday, so naturally I thought I’d show up for weekly food party. But first…two things:

Thing #1: Latest Pup Pics



Cleo went to her very first dog spa appointment, aka the groomer. 🙂 She got all decked out with a scarf and two bows. The scarf lasted about 10 minutes. We are currently down to one bow. But hey, it was cute while it lasted.

Thing #2: Sweetly Fit got featured as a 2012 Golden Heart Award Winner

accessrx.com just put out a list of the top bloggers of 2012 in weight loss education, in which I was included on! Although I don’t think my blog is geared specifically towards weight loss, and instead more of a healthy approach to life in general, I was nonetheless honored to be next to blogs that have inspired me all the way back to when I first discovered this community. I use this blog to share my adventures and passion for health, fitness, and food, and if others can enjoy or benefit from it, then that is all the motivation I need to keep things going.

And now, some food for the party.

some chocolate covered pretzels and some cheesecake. Typical. 🙂

Plus much much more of course, but things have been kept pretty simple and a lot of repeats due to to still not feeling too great. I’m still battling some health issues right now and am hoping to get some answers from my doctor soon so I can things back on track with life. Thanks to all who are supporting me through this not so fun time right now. Love you all!

On the exercise front, I have been completely sedentary since January 1st. Kind of ironic how the majority of sedentary people are currently kicking it up a notch per New Years resolutions, while me, the very active person, is taking a total break, haha. It’s interesting how things work out sometimes. Anywho, a break is always good for the body and hopefully I’ll be nice and recharged by the time I’m back in good health. With exercise being a huge part of my stress relief, it’s been tough to be away from it. However I know it will be beneficial. Whenever I take a break, I’m always that much more pumped up when I get back to it.

School-wise, I have until next Tuesday before I jump back into things. I’m savoring the time I have left with no schedule. That part has been oh-so-nice. 😀

I hope YOU ALL are doing fantastic and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

    Your meals always look so good! I’m sorry you’re still not feeling well and I hope you feel better soon. I am having to take a break from intense exercise and may end up having to take a complete rest from exercise all-together for a while, so I know how hard it can be. Hang in there! Everything’s going to be okay. 🙂

    Big hugs, hun. Health issues are never a pleasant thing to deal with, especially when they’re a mystery. I hope you get the answers that you need soon so that you can start working on getting better. Until then, rest up and don’t stress – it’ll do you a tonne of good 🙂

    Girl I hope you get some answers soon. Good for you for giving yourself the rest you need and not worrying too much. You know exercise isn’t gone forever and this is just an opportunity to relax on break! Congrats on the award, that is awesome!

    I hope you feel better soon and that everything gets back on track as soon as possible. I’m glad you’re getting some rest, and like you said, the best part is that you’ll be really motivated to start back up! Keep being strong. ❤

    PS – I can't get over your puppy. And congrats on the award!

    I know how tough it is to take time away from working out but hopefully your body will reward you for the time off once you get back into it!

    I love the sound of that spinach salad with the kabocha and peanut flour sauce.

    Oh man, I’m so sorry to hear about the health issues. It is so frustrating that things happening with our bodies can be such mysteries! I’ve gone through that before too. Hopefully everything is fine! Exercise will always be there after your feel better, so rest up and eat some good foods:) Which you seem to be doing anyways. Yum.

    Your food always look so damn good! I always get hungry after reading your blog–lol. I hope your health improves soon–and it’s great that you are listening to your body!! I completely understand finding other outlets to release stress–when exercise gives us those essential endorphins. I’ve been taking time off as well from high intense exercise as I actually got a stress fracture in my ankle from doing too much high impact stuff. It takes some time–but your body will heal!

    Looks delicious!

  15. Andrea January 30, 2013 at 2:30 pm #
