Gluten free in Washington DC

In recent travels to our nation’s capital I was pleasantly surprised by how gluten free friendly the area was. On the first day from some research through Google, I found a gluten free friendly restaurant, Open City, right across the street from our hotel. It wasn’t just “gluten free friendly”, but they actually had g-free options. The staff was even knowledgeable. When I asked how their kitchen made their gluten-free items I was thrilled to hear that they use clean surfaces and that the owners wife is gluten intolerant and everything has to be up to her standards. This made me happy to hear as many restaurants could have gluten free offerings, but lack a clean gluten free environment in the kitchen. This place seemed to do it’s best to provide that.

G-Free Travel Snacks

  Gluten Free friends, as you know traveling is a challenge when it comes to simply feeding yourself.

Workout with my iPad

Confession... I despise the gym, but I love fitness and working out. Anyone else in my shoes?

I hear you! Glad we're in this together.

So what do I do at the gym and why do I even bother?

Truth is, I don't hate the gym completely. Once I get myself to the gym and get my workout in, I feel great by the time I'm heading home. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get myself to the gym, but I have found a few tricks that get me there and make my time enjoyable. Yep, I said enjoyable.

More than half of my workouts I do outdoors or in a class, but sometimes there is no way around the gym. Plus, I have a gym membership, and once you get to know me you learn that I'm not a wasteful person, so I have to make sure I get my money's worth out …
