When a DC “Best Burgers” list excludes Le Diplomate
Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.

Daily reminder. 

Last night I got to see Chef with my chef.
You guys! This movie was so cute and heartwarming. I highly recommend going and seeing (or definitely watching it when it hits Netflix). Jon Favreau did an incredible job writing, acting, and directing. The BF was impressed with the knowledge and skills he had for food.

Such great ideas. I want to try all of them.

I have sadly made some nastyass sangria. Hopefully this will help!

This is good to know. I recently purchased a cute Sangria pitcher & glasses that needs to be put to work.

How to Get Through the Mental Barriers of Running, from FitSugar:

Have a mantra (or three). Whether it is a word or a phrase, a mantra that is motivating may be just what you need to break through the negative thoughts. Keep repeating your mantra, focusing on your goal.
Focus on the positive. Those mental barriers often include a lot of negativity. Instead, turn it around and focus on the positive! Think about how far you have come, how hard you have worked, and what you have already achieved.
Think about your form. When your mind starts to break down, usually your form starts to waver too. Keep your chest up and shoulders back, think about where your feet are landing, and work on your breathing. This will take your focus off the mental side and onto what can help you toward your goal.
Find your power song. If you run with music, be sure to have a power song on standby. This can be a song with powerful lyrics, a great beat, or even one that takes you back to a happy memory. It will bring a smile to your face and an extra pep in your step!
Visualize your goal. When your mind starts to tell you no, tell it yes by visualizing achieving your goal! Imagine yourself crossing the finish line of your race. Think about telling your friends and family your new PR. Focus on the goal, and let your body do the rest!
