Exploring the Brew-niverse

It's great to see ya here!

@ Flying Saucer (Matt's Mecca)

Fun Fact: 
One of Matt's favorite things in the world is craft beer, and he peddles it all day. He's always getting me to try some new brewed conconction, and 8 times out of 10 I absolutely love his suggestions. So last night, when he was given tickets to go a little beer tasting event called Science of Beer via a distributor friend I said sure I'd go, why not?

I'm not nearly as much as a brew-fanatic as he is, but I can definitely appreciate a delicious cold one every now and again.

In short, IT WAS AWESOME.

When they named the event, SCIENCE of Beer they meant it! My nerdy side reeeally came out to play for the evening. They held the tasting at the Adventure Science Center here in Nashville, and let me just break down this scenario for y'all: all of the fun exhibits that go into children's science museums, add beer, no kids. 

BRILLIANT.

I tasted a little of several wonderful brews, but my favorite was a chocolate milk stout from Terrapin brewery called "Moo Hoo". Hilarious name, delicious chocolate-y brew.


Since yesterday was jam-packed with getting ready to travel for the holidays (I take forever to pack) and adventuring up the brewniverse, I used it as a rest day. We leave today for Indiana and I couldn't be more excited! It will be great to spend the holiday with both of our families :)

While we're traveling over the next week I plan on doing at least a little running every day, for me, running is the best vacation workout. It's easy to pack for, you aren't relying on a gym, and it can be done early in the morning so it won't interfere with friends & family time during the day!

Since we're coming to the end of the year, and being away from home will make it difficult for me to get in stepmill workouts & racquetball games, I'm modifying my goals to be travel-friendly...

Updated Goals of the Moment:

  • Do at least 50 crunches and a 1 minute plank in the morning after waking up and in the evening right before bed every day.
  • Do at least 5 miles on the stepmill every week.
  • Do wall-sits when brushing teeth

Good luck with all your healthy-living goals over the holiday! I know it can be challenging to steer away from tempting junk food and keep up a healthy attitude, but you can do it, you totally can!

I'll be back soon to talk about what I'm looking to achieve in 2013...

Do you have any meaningful personal goals or resolutions for the New Year yet? I'd love to hear about them, I'm always looking for inspiration!

Thanks for reading!
