Wild & Free

This week’s wild DC adventure took place at the Smithsonian’s ZooLights display. More than 500k environmentally-friendly LED lights transform the zoo into a magical, winter wonderland!

Additional spin classes at Crunch gym were also a highlight this week (part of the aforementioned free week-long pass). Though oddly enough, the phrase “too much of a good thing” may be applied here as I was pretty burnt out after three classes in three days. I’ve taken a brief break from a consistent running schedule and it’s time to get back in the groove. Sunnier forecasts also help with this plan.

A bit of satisfaction in the kitchen over the weekend when I realized I had overripe bananas, searched for banana bread recipes and already had all the ingredients for these Cinnamon Swirl Banana Muffins! The little things.

It took considerable willpower to omit chocolate chips from the batch. Fortunately, I think they turned out just as well without a chocolate overload… One may even consider them “clean”!

Cheers!
