Pearlplexed Packing & Belizean Daily Dish Part 1

Confession: I, Pearl, have commitment issues. In pretty much every area of my life. Once, my aunt asked me if I wanted to buy season tickets to the off-Broadway theatre we frequently went to. I started to sweat. Heart palpitations. That meant staying in the Albany area for another year. Never mind the fact that I was still in school and was going to be living there for that. I couldn’t do it. I panicked. Told her I couldn’t do it. I know I’m crazy, you don’t have to tell me twice.

Anywho, my commitment issues cause me to be an extreme over-packer. The clothes are what used to trip me up. How am I supposed to commit to one outfit I will be wearing a week from now? What if the weather is bad? Or my shoes don’t match? I once brought 4 coats for a 4 day weekend home from college. Backpacking has certainly helped this because I’m limited to what I can carry on my back in addition to my toiletries, towel, first aid kit, and necessities like a knife, lighter and my lucky twine. Yes, I have lucky twine. I’ve had it since my junior year in college and I bring it on every trip with me. I have yet to actually need it but because it’s been on so many trips with me I’m terrified to go anywhere without it.

The Daily Dish of a Nutrition Genius Week 3

Brrrrrrrr it sure is getting cold here in Rochester, NY!! Despite the cold I am determined to keep up with my running schedule so on this chilly morning I got my butt out of bed and went for a fasted 6.5 mile run in the snow.

After my run my first priority was re-hydrating so I started with 1 tsp of magnesium powder mixed with 12 oz of water. As you know from Nutrition Genius Radio Episode 12: Post-Workout we like to reserve our highest carbohydrate meal for after workouts to replenish our muscle glycogen and help rebuild our tissues.

This is how I did it… Continue reading “The Daily Dish of a Nutrition Genius Week 3”
