alpaca for sale

alpaca for sale--journey for jessiAs a busy engineering student, most times I find it difficult to get out for some “me” time.  I am really trying hard this school year at making my health, both physical and mental health, a top priority.  Why?  Because being healthy makes me happy and when I feel happy, I feel like my life is more put together, and when I feel like my life is put together, I find that I am more inclined to study more effectively.  So, this is how my “me” time this weekend went thus far… Continue reading

healthy and smart

healthy and smart--Journey for JessiCollege is back in full swing–meaning, that it is more difficult to keep up my healthy intentions when I have other things like studying, group projects, and club meetings to focus on.  I admit, lately my health and fitness has been put on the back burner, but I am back in action.  Here are some things I have learned over the years about staying healthy, both mentally and physically, in college without sacrificing my studies.

realizing the journey

realizing the journey--Journey for JessiMy third year of college has come and I am settling into the year as the first-weeks-of-school-festivities come to a close.  I have been ridiculously busy lately as made obvious by my lack of posts…  I am thankful that things are winding down so I can get back into my fitness routine (I might have back-tracked a bit…) and focus on my priorities.  My goals for this month are to declare my nutrition major officially, get back on the health train, and register for the Boulder Spring Half Marathon.  I need to begin running more often again in order to get back into the swing of training. I need to take better care of my body.  I am a firm believer that the body can do wonderful things (like running a marathon) if you take care of it.  I know I need to train properly and effectively as I cannot help but think of Jessi–I am running the Boulder Half for her, for goodness sake.   Continue reading

crossfit rookie

crossfit rookie--Journey for JessiI finally tried crossfit… and I really really like it.  I have only been to three one-on-one sessions, but so far, I get an amazing workout every time.  It definitely is not for the weak minded… I find myself pushing hard and testing my limits of what I can do versus what my mind says I can do.  The following are some of my beginning workouts or WoD (workout of the day). Continue reading

pizza pizazz

pizza pizazz--Journey for JessiWho needs delivery?  Not me, I have a kitchen.  I am always trying to find ways to turn delicious foods that are not usually labeled as”healthy” into a more guilt-free cuisine.  This attempt was for pizza, and it was highly successful.  The Whole Wheat Pizza Crust was spot on topped with Fresh Basil Pesto and the toppings fit both my needs and my boyfriend’s (we went half and half).

hiking the summer away

hiking the summer away--Journey for JessiOn to the finale of my summer “vacation.”  I say “vacation” because I was vacationing in the colorful state in which I attend school, Colorado.  I am so blessed to call this amazing place my home away from home.  The beauty and wonder never ceases to captivate me.  On the final day in Glenwood Springs, my family and I went off the beaten path to a more than less popular hiking trail, but it did not disappoint by any means!  It was full of gorgeous views of the river and falls and if it were not for the Grizzly Bear encounter (yes, GRIZZLY BEAR!!!), then we would have kept hiking the afternoon.

when in colorado

when in colorado--Journey for JessiWhen in Colorado, you have to spend as much time as possible outside. There is really no other way.  After moving back up via a two day road trip, I was itching to be back in the sun and back in nature.  The day after I got back (when I was still residing in a hotel), I made it out to Horsetooth Resevoir with my boyfriend to go kayaking.  It was so much fun!  A nice way to work those arms and shoulders without even realizing. Continue reading

omelet us catch up

omelet us catch up--Journey for JessiI apologize for being so behind on my posts, but now that things are slowly settling into place after the move, I can go through all of my recipes and pictures and turn them over to this blog.  The last thing I did before moving back to Colorado was have brunch with a really really good friend of mine before we went our separate ways again.  He is one of those people that you can not see for months and pick right back where you left off, which is 100% our case.  He let me pick my favorite brunch place at home, La Madeleine.  That omelet was the beginning of a new obsession of mine. Continue reading

back in action

back in action--Journey for JessiGreetings everyone!  It has been a long time and I am in blog withdrawal. Over the past weeks I have been traveling across the state  of Texas back to Colorado in preparation for the beginning of classes again.  It has been a great summer and these past weeks have been a perfect finale to the whole ordeal.  I have a lot to catch up on with my trip, activities, recipes, and even some loose ends to tie before I even left Texas.  So here goes nothing…  Continue reading

trader joe’s

trader joe's--Journey for JessiOne weekend ago I visited Trader Joe’s for the fist time ever.  I have always heard glorious stories about it and how it is deemed “the poor man’s Whole Foods.”  Well, I love Whole Foods (obsessed really) and I am a poor college student… so I thought I would go check it out while I was home in Houston for the summer! Continue reading
