The Doc on Diabetes.

Most of you know how diabetes has played a role in my life.  Earlier this week, a fellow blogger had the AMAZING opportunity to interview the oh-so-easy-on-the-eyes Dr. Travis Stork, and he spoke about Type 2 Diabetes being frustratingly (in my opinion) preventable, among a few other interesting topics including the beloved artificial sweetener. Check out the full interview on Peanut Butter Fingers.

I am off to visit Big Sis and the Laz family in Salt Lake – which means a weekend of cuddling those sweet babies, heading to the Sundance Film Festival and catchin’ Zac Brown Band!  It’s time to get my culture on!

I am trying something new on this trip – for the first time, I am NOT bringing my running shoes on vacation.  I want to set aside my “me time” for ultimate niece/nephew/sister time.  So I will attempt to stay active all weekend without going for a run or heading to the gym.  I’ll keep you posted on how creative I get (like say, a leg workout of pole vaulting using my 6’6″ Bro-in-Law as the pole or asking my sister to recant the story about a woman crashing into her bathroom stall at Chili’s –  laughing and snorting works the abs), or if this experiment is a total fail.  Suggestions are appreciated – have a great weekend!!
