Selfie for Ihopeyoulikeblackberries (and a few others)

Watching MNF while cooling off from a 6.5 mile run. I’m not going to be able to stay up to see the end of the Vikings season opener as I have to be on a plane tomorrow morning at 6:30 - ouch!

Jess’ questions: 

1. Favourite ice cream flavor

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ALL DAY!! But I’m particular and my favorite one is from Baskin Robbins (it has to be green with LOTS of chocolate chips in it)

2. Most adventurous thing you’ve ever done

Studied abroad in Brazil for a semester! I went in not knowing how to speak Portuguese AT ALL and traveled with a friend who also didn’t know the language. We had an awesome time navigating through Brazil!!

3. Top thing you want to do before you die

Be a mother.

4. What was in the best sandwich you’ve ever had?

Thanksgiving dinner sandwich! Thick cut turkey, cranberry sauce, delicious stuffing and I’m not sure what else but it was DELICIOUS.

5. What keeps you motivated? About weight loss or life in general

All of my motivation in life and weight loss comes from looking back and seeing what I’ve accomplished. It’s so easy to get down on yourself and become disillusioned.. sometimes you just have to take a moment and appreciate how far you’ve come.

Madeon remix of Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out"

Delicious spring mix topped with paleo chicken salad! Shred chicken, add half of a mashed avocado, 1 tbs lemon juice, 1 tbs olive oil, 2 tbs Dijon mustard, chopped celery, halved red grapes, sea salt and pepper. So delicious!
