Finding a restaurant that serves a decent brunch on a Sunday here in Guatemala can be a real struggle....
It’s hard to believe that the marathon is only 7 weeks away! This is when you start the “marathon preparation” and the training gets harder.
Since giving up refined sugar months ago, I had to look around and research for better and healthier sugar substitutes that I could use in my smoothies, cereals and food recipes.
Now that the World Cup is over and our minds aren’t focused on soccer, I have to tell you about this new line of hair products that I was anxiously waiting to arrive. (I was waiting since February!).

Today we woke up in a not so pleasant way. The only day I have to sleep a little later, to recover from Sunday’s brutal long runs, we get woken-up by an earthquake! No matter how often these “tremors” happen here, it’s never fun, I tell you. You never get used to feeling the earth shake under you. Mother Nature is a beautiful, powerful and very scary thing!
It’s been a while since I updated you guys on my marathon training, huh? Truth is, after I got sick not only did I have to stall my training for a while, I also lacked the energy to do everything else.
Yesterday, I was out and about with a client looking for some finishing touches for her home and on the list was a rug for her living room. Rugs are wonderful decorative items as they can really complement existing furniture and pull together a room. I love them.
I hope everyone enjoyed the day off yesterday! After the weekend we had, my husband and I sure needed it! See, to celebrate my birthday, I decided to invite some of our closest friends over to watch the Brazil Vs. Chile game (with vegan snacks, lunch and dessert included. No alcohol for us, of course). If you watched it, you know the game was absolutely nerve-racking. Luckily for us, we were able to beat Chile on the penalty shots—but it was a close shot, too close! On Friday, we play against Colombia, a team that has been playing surprisingly well.
At my grandma’s house there’s always been, since I was a kid, a cast iron skillet used ONLY for fried eggs. My grandma’s “huevos a la ranchera” were an absolute favorite of mine when growing up and although her method was anything but healthy (the skillet was always half full with vegetable oil and she drowned the eggs in the gently warmed oil), I still love them. My husband cringes whenever I tell this story, I think it’s the stuff his nightmares are made of.
