Stress-Relieving Meditation

If after this election, you have bouts of panic or freak-out moments, this meditation is for you. If you feel stressed, on the verge of mental break, this meditation is for you. Even if your anxiety has nothing to do with the election, this meditation is for you. This will just take a few minutes and, trust me, it’s worth it. Deep breath.

Why This is Personal

This hurts. This is gutting, like the wind has been knocked out of us. When you have to wake up in the morning in a fog, trying to remember what horrible thing had happened and then you feel the weight slowly pressing on your chest. This feels personal. But, why does this feel so personal? Why are we experiencing mourning? Why did I ugly cry? I’ve lost elections before (Bush, anyone?), but not like this. This is not just my liberal butt being whooped, it’s what this represents. Life is not just literal, it is also symbolic. When someone demeans and insults you and then is elected, it’s personal. To the people who are scorning the liberals being upset, I think you’re missing the point. I don’t necessarily agree with protesting that Trump got elected because it’s unproductive, but I would be the first on the streets to protest if he starts doing what he said he would. People are personally upset and here’s why:

After drinking too much and crying my way through Tuesday night, I opened my computer (with which I was watching the election) to find a tissue plastered to the screen in some sad comedy.

Our Santa Barbara Trip in Pictures

We recently had a getaway to Santa Barbara. It was not just a trip, but a real vacation. It was just Saturday and Sunday, but boy did it help us relax, refresh, and recharge! It was a beautiful weekend filled with food, beach, lots of walking, and plenty of exploring. We highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back!

We did lots of eating...

Our Last Few Weeks in Pics

You may have noticed that we have been pretty MIA over here at Hungry & Fit. Well, we moved, we went on a trip, and were just pretty darn busy. However, we’re back! Here’s a little photo jumble to show you what we’ve been up to. And as always, stay hungry and fit!

We moved...and that was a big project!

Your Good Deed for the Month

Hey everyone, we know you’re all good people but in the spirit of greatness, please consider our plea. A close friend of ours has a dog that means everything to her. When your family lives on the other side of the country and you move to LA because you have a great job, you can’t take much with you. (Trust me, I know what it’s like to be far from home… many of us do.) Fortunately, for all of us pet lovers, we only need one thing (or in our case, four) to come home to at the end of the day. 

Dog breeds are sort of irrelevant. Basenjis can yodel and stand on two legs, standard poodles can swim really well, and french bulldogs can fly away with their ears, but all breeds really are sweethearts when they’re raised in a loving and caring home. Taza is a big, older, sweet rottweiler mix who needs a little help right now. See, when we’re not feeling well and can’t perform up to par at work, we know how to take care of ourselves. We go to the doctor, get an x-ray, and often can take care of what is wrong before it becomes a serious issue. The thing is, as humans, we really are at the top of the food chain, but you don’t have to look at it like that.
