Weekday Getaway: Utah Adventures!

So last week I was MIA because of a work trip to Utah. Utah is beautiful state and the people were friendly which is always a plus. And the food…oh the food. Lets just say I gained a pound or two. Oops.

We also went on an exhausting 8 mile hike and happened to run out of water because we didn’t realize how long the hike was. We thought it was a short walk up a hill. So what did we do? We drank water right out of the river of course. The water was super cold and tasted like just like bottled water. I’m not even kidding. Some parts of the hike were difficult and we had to grabbed onto rocks and roots in order to pull ourselves up, but we made it! Our reward was an amazing waterfall at the end.

Random Musings | Upcoming Trips

Dreams don't help you sleep. Dreams keep you up.

With that being said…what are your dreams and are you doing what you need to do in order to get there? One thing about me is that when I want to accomplish something, I put everything into getting it done. Five years ago, I never would have thought I would be coming into my last semester before I get my bachelors degree. Hell, I never even thought I would get a bachelors. Funny how things change, but I am oh so glad it’s for the better. This time next year, I hope to be gearing up for a grad school problem. I just have to stay focused on the big picture and doing the things I need to do in order to make it to that next step.

On a lighter note, I am currently making plans for some small day/weekend trips. Small trips from now until the end of the year. I have been in California for several years and have yet to venture out and explore the little nooks and crannies. Now is the time to change that! I really want to go check out Death Valley, but I don’t want to be rushed so I am going to hold off on that one until December when the semester is over. You definitely need more than a weekend to see that place. Plus, it won’t be scorching hot. In the meantime, there are other places I am interested in visiting in California:

Blog Transfer And FOOD!

So I am currently in the process of transferring my blog over. I can already tell you it will be a painful  and hopefully not long process. As soon as I figure out what to do. I am hoping that all my stuff will make it over to the new site as well. The URL is not changing, but the host is. Hopefully there won’t be any issues, but it is on my priority list for this week.

And I have 1 month until I go to Las Vegas!!! I seriously can’t wait to get out there and relax. That also means I need to get my life together by eating clean and working out. One of my staple foods is fish. I usually buy frozen fish and I typically rotate because cod, tilapia and swai for some variety. I usually boil my fish with lots of seasoning, but this past week I have been baking my fish instead. Less cleanup!

I like to keep it really simple, so I coat the pan with coconut oil (its in a spray can), and season with lemon pepper seasoning, chipotle seasoning, red pepper flakes and a small amount of salt. After its done cooking I like to add some kind of salsa. Last weeks salsa was an avocado salsa from Trader Joe’s.
