Weekend @ Home!

I was finally at home this weekend! No traveling for this girl! 🙂 As much as I loveeeee traveling (preferably by plane) I definitely love being home.

I didn’t get many pictures this weekend. Well… because I didn’t do much! Ha! I stayed in Friday evening with A and watched True Detective. I must say, it is quite intriguing. Matthew Mcconaughey? Must I say more? 😉
Saturday morning started out with a quick 2.5 mile run and then got ready to go to an Oktoberfest with friends. A and I ended up staying in Saturday night as well. So rare for us!

Sunday Sunday Sunday. Phew! I’m worn out!

I ran 5 miles around Arlington…. the weather has changed back to SUMMER!!!!! NOOOOOOOO! I struggled hardcore through my run. I need it to go back to Fall weather 🙂
Then I waited for my Pops to come to my apartment to go “hiking.” Little did he know I decided we should go somewhere new! Roosevelt Island here we come!




Well this weekend was nice and relaxing but also active!! 🙂 Next weekend I want to go to a Pumpkin Patch or something Fall-like !!  Have a great week!




Eastern vs. Western Medicine

I am not the biggest fan of western medication. I like to find lifestyle solutions or eastern medicine when in desperate need, but I am very thankful for western medicine’s ability to control many diseases and pains. Sometimes you have to weigh the risks and benefits. I really do hate taking pills in order to feel better. I used to pop advil like candy when I felt an ache or pain. Now I evaluate what hurts, why it could be hurting, when it started, etc… then take the alternative medicine route prior to anything else.

This has worked for me ever since I started thinking of natural ways to heal… however, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s where either I have to find the cause and fix it(which may take A LOT of time), deal with the pain, or … dun dun dun… use western medicine.

So the reason for this post is I have had some pain that will not go away unless I take medicine right away.  THANK GOODNESS for western medicine. (Never thought that would ever come out of my mouth).  Although I’ve dealt with this for awhile now; I am hopeful that me going to my Acupuncturist may cure not only my stomach issues but other pains as well.  It’s balancing out my body so why can’t it balance everything at once? I think it’ll work!


Well that’s my short take on both sides of medicine.  I could go on and on though 😛

Happy Tuesday! Short work weeks are the best ! 🙂
