Law School Eats: Calabacitas

I started the semester with a crazy-need to organize everything. My meals were out of whack, and you know how muchI prefer organization over chaos. That said, I decided to meal prep for an entire week! I thought it would be best to post a new “Law School Eats” series! Most of the meals cost around $3 per serving, make at least 4 servings, and they are so easy to…

On Sundays, We Meal Prep

Last month, the ABA sponsored a Mental Health Day. At UNT Dallas College of Law, the faculty and staff made a HUGE effort to focus on the importance of total-body wellness; Camp Gladiator visited and signed us up for CAMP!  I was super honest up front and told the trainer that unless the Beau could come, there was just no way this derriere would find its way to an outdoor gym.   …

Such a Pretty Fat: 1L Version

I’m channeling Jen Lancaster here. Because I’m such a fan…and I think she gets me. Fo’ real. Weighing in at 174ish and trying to be healthier is tough. The things I like to eat are actually pretty healthy, like broccoli and pasta and chicken…but then I add butter and make a white wine sauce and the entire meal is delicious now like 1000 calories per serving. Which, I’m told, is not entirely good…

Marine Monday

…on Tuesday!   Ok – so I’m not nearly as regimented as my Marine brothers, but I sure as heck am trying! This week, we’re working on those chicken wing arms! Some people call them bat wings, but I think that’s terribly offensive to those little fuzzballs. Besides, you and I can’t actually fly with these fatty appendages tied to us. I stumbled across this workout on Pinterest. Check out…

Marine Monday – Thunder Storms

There’s no running today. Nothing to do outside with the pupper and beau. None of that is happening today. We are under climatic attack in the metroplex. The rain has fallen since 4pm and the pavement looks glossy, slick, and dangerous. The lightning is beautifully terrifying. It’d be wonderful to go outside and run, clear my head, but – I prefer not being a lightning rod. Fried cerebellum? No thanks….

Marine Monday: Ab-Flab

Ab-flab, muffin-top, potato chip blanket, walking loufa – there’s plenty of ways to refer to the excess weight that many of us carry on our hips. Which reminds me – let me show you my fat picture. Feast your eyes on this monstrous moment in my recent life, as in, 2 weeks ago [in really awful lighting, late at night, and I didn’t even bother fixing my hair because we…

Cupcake-Bashing

The past two months have been incredibly difficult. Graduate school, teaching high school, relationship issues, and not working out. What? No wonder your life feels like it’s falling apart, girl! So here I am, eating a cupcake – writing to you about fitness. Why? Because every now and then, I need a damn cupcake. With a glass of wine. That’s just the honest truth. It’s not an every day practice,…

Marine Monday: Glutes!

Getting that derriere in gear is going to take some effort. This week, we are focusing on busting that butt flab and getting that base, blasted!

Oorah, Boys! – A Marine Sister’s Challenge

Two of my broskis have decided to dedicate themselves to the Armed Forces. One of them is already a Marine, while the other left for bootcamp today. It’s surreal. When you’re younger, watching them fall through ceilings (family story that nearly ruined a Christmas due to contractor bills), break bones, flirt (and fail) with girls, or even learn to make Ramen and consider it “cooking” – all these moments make…

Looking Good Nude

I always liked the phrase, “in the buff” but I’ve come to the realization that I rather prefer the beau “buff” instead of myself. I don’t see myself being a buff woman. I do, however, want to be a strong woman. I’ve got the strong mind, strong spirit down – but I really need to work on the strong abs and impressive biceps. [You know, if I ever need to…
