Silence is golden. I never understood the phrase as a child, teenager, or young adult. It seemed like a common phrase that was used a lot, or maybe I just talked too much. Maybe it was a prize at the end of the silent game. Now I like that game as a parent. Only if I could get my four year old to understand how to play.
I think the first time I understood the phrase was when I first became a teacher. After all students were dismissed, there was total silence. The chaos of the day disappeared in minutes, and we were left to be able to think and plan again for the next day. Ah, yes.
The golden moment of the day. Shhh! Silence is golden.

Body Image – noun; the subjective picture or mental image of one’s own body.
I know what I want to say to myself, but it just doesn’t happen easily. It’s a constant battle in my head… You look amazing! You worked so hard and you’re so strong! Yes, my hair actually looks good. My bags under my eyes aren’t that noticeable, right? Ugh, you’re so fat. My skin is disgusting. I have nothing to wear. I hate my clothes. You’re so gross. I don’t feel pretty. My body image perception needs some work.

Summer is over.
I can’t even believe I am saying this, but summer is over and September is here. It was a great summer, but as usual, it flew by too quickly. I have always loved fall – beautiful changing leaves, pumpkins, fall clothes, Halloween, you name it! However, this is the first year I can actually say that I am not excited. In fact, I am so anxious. So anxious that it has been controlling me. Let me tell you why.

I can’t even begin to tell how how delicious these Chicken Tzatziki Bowls are! I am a sucker for Mediterranean food, so I knew I would love it… but my husband, who is not as in love with Mediterranean food, was obsessed with it! Of course I left the olives off of his… god forbid he eat an olive. The bitterness of the tomato and cucumber salad paired so nicely with the tart and spiciness of the chicken. I will definitely be making this one again!

I told you guys a while ago that I was trying to be better at eating lunch. The only way for me to do this, is to meal prep. I stumbled upon this Skinnytaste meal – Southwestern Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Salad – and I just had to make it. It was pretty easy to make, and it was so good! The spiciness of the jalapenos paired with the sweetness of the mango is to die for! I made this whole serving, and had enough for 3 lunches. Give it a try!
