Let’s Travel: Florida, Part 1 – St. Augustine

Another month and another trip…I seem to be traveling quite a bit lately. Not necessarily by design, a lot of the trips have been last minute, but this one has been in the works for a while now.

I really wanted to go on a real vacation and I really neeeeded to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter 🙂 Yes, I am a 30-something and I freaking love Harry Potter – deal with it. However, I knew that I wasn’t going to spend almost a week with just Harry Potter. So, to get the most out of the trip it was split into 2 parts:

1) St. Augustine and the beach

2) Harry Potter

For this reason, this trip will be presented as a two-part blog!

So here we go! Part one – St. Augustine!

Healthy Road Trip: Wilmington, NC

Being healthy on a road trip can be hard…you spend long hours in a car with nothing to do…there are convenience stores and fast food along the way…I get it!! However, it can be done! With a little preparation and a plan to stay active while you are away it will be like you never left the comfort of your daily routine!

For this trip, we drove to Wilmington, NC. If you have never been I highly recommend it! It is a cute little beach/river town with tons of things to do and see.

Here is how I stayed on track while on the road and what we got up to in Wilmington!

Low Carb Sloppy Joes, Two Ways

Sloppy Joes…an oldie, but a goodie. Or if you’re from Western Maryland…Steamers…an oldie, but a goodie! Yes, out my way we call them Steamers. My grandmother used to make the best Steamers! No Manwich for her though. She would make them with plenty of ketchup – which means lot of added sugar.

I have shared a Sloppy Joe recipe before…but I consider this the new and improved version! This one has no Splenda and its served up in an “open-faced” style low-carb “sandwich.” I have even come up with two ways of serving this deliciousness up!Read More »

Let’s Get Active: Charity Bike Ride

I am no novice when it comes to charity events. I volunteer a lot in my community and really like to give back. Most recently, I participated in Walk MS and it was so much fun to get some exercise in, support a great cause, and interact with others.

However, two weekends ago I stepped up my game and participated in a 30-mile charity bike ride! The bike ride called Tour de Frederick supported my local Boys and Girls Club and the Rotary Club. The Tour de Frederick had many options for people to participate including 10-mile, 30-mile, 60-mile, and 100-mile rides! This being my first year I felt that the 30-mile option was best!
