While trick-or-treaters may be house-hopping and candy-popping this weekend, I’ll continue consuming my healthy supplements on the ☼daily!

Ginkgo Biloba: to promote mental focus

Centrum VitaMints®: to aquire essential nutrients in a tasty way

  • I’ve come a long way since my childhood Flinstones chewables ~ which I doubt are the best bet for my teeth with the acidity
  • I’m still not a fan of swallowing tablets without having water and food in handy
  • Therefore, I’m all about double-duty of fulfilling my ☼daily☼ needs while freshening my breath!

Of course, I don’t skimp on the actual food that I need to fuel my brain and body ~ which I’m actually including in an analogy between my marathon and my main statistical method (multiple regression) for my doc research!

Pumpkin Trail Mix

Study Mode Trail Mix: Since almonds helped my bod during my 26.2-mi. course and my mind through my dissertation process, they were the main feature of this snack combo for the crunch + the Pumpkin Spice flavor along with the pumpkin cookies & candy, as well as more chocolate to cover these Brookside blueberries that also benefit the memory!

Speaking of my race, although I haven’t run as many long distances in awhile, I’ve fit in mini drills to keep my energy levels high while I’ve been drained from my dissertation, a.k.a., my doc docs …

During my dedicated eating time (yes, I must make a meal break away from my computer, according to my Bestie Evie‘s birthday advice), I actually HIIT before I sit!

Olive Garden Leftovers from Ladies’ Night with the Holy Spiri† (counter-clockwise from bottom right): Chicken Cacciatorie & Cheese Manicotti (2 of my fave entrées rolled into 1) • Pasta e Fagioli w/ breadstick • MinestroneBestie Evie‘s Better-Than-Sex BrowniePumpkin Cheesecake (which took me 4 days to finish!) • Andes Mints ~ gotta ♥love♥ these after-dinner chocolate mints to cap off a classic OG meal!

While I wait for my chow to cook ~ simmering in the crock pot, boiling on the stove, or nooking in the oven/microwave/toaster ~ I do the following quick set(s), to induce more calorie-burning even after I’m done exercising:

Standing ♥Cardio♥

Floor/Mat/Carpet Core

More ♥Cardio♥

  • Dance ’til your ♥heart’s ♪content♫ ~ or your grub is ready

Stretch

Relieve those muscles after sitting at the computer desk and before sitting down to eat

Happy Early Halloween, All †Saints’ Day y el Día de los Muertos! ✌

Thirsty Thursday: Pray Always Everyday

🌞Everyday, I greet👋 GOD☝️ as soon as I 😵awake😲 and right before I go to 😴sleep💤 plus any moment in between. As I welcome His presence by opening my window 🌅shades🌇 to bring in the 🌈sunlight☀️, I simply pray🙏

This is the day the LORD has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Sweet Annie

I love to wake up to Sweet Annie from slumber and cat naps! 😻

Then throughout the day, I’ll pray before 💻working🎤, 🍕eating🍧 and 🚘traveling✈️. Prior to 🍱meals🍮, I have series of prayer💒 cards, yet I have a couple that are short and sweet…

Quick Picnic

I packed this picnic real quick for after my Holy Hour. 💝

GOD is good, GOD is great.
Let us thank Him for this food. AMEN.

Bro Joe

Add to the mix more fruit and goodies from my CHRIST Bro Joe! 🍎🍊🍌

  • Also, another traditional one:

Bless us O LORD, for these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through CHRIST our LORD. AMEN.

Pano Park POV

Panoramic Park POV 🌳

  • Following the 🍜feast🍰, I also pray:

We give thee thanks to the Almighty GOD, who lives and reigns forever, and to the souls of the faithful departed, Rest In Peace. AMEN.

Groundhog Day

Our Groundhog pal also approached us for apples! 🐒

Once I’m about to hit the 🌆sack🌄, my bedtime prayers include the 🌹Rosary💍 and these from my childhood:

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the LORD, my soul to keep…

  • Guide me, JESUS, through the night, and wake me with the morning light. AMEN. 
  • If I should die before I wake, I pray the LORD, my soul to take. AMEN.

Thank you for another blessed day, LORD!

3:33 ~ make a wish!!!
