12 our students have done a great job at Chinese Skills & Talents Contests hosted by Confucius Institute this past Saturday for this very first time of participation. They have won 1st-3rd Prizes in multiple areas including Chinese Speech, Dictation and Short Film. Some of them won in multiple categories for a total of 16 awards. They were able to compete with students from other schools and even adults. Congratulations!!

Yep, this is what I did for 2 weeks; stuffed my face and enjoyed every moment.
This was the only dish that I tried where I said, "No, thank you." I know why after they told me what it was. It's basically the Chinese version of chittlins. Chitterlings, if you want the proper way of saying it. It wasn't bad, just not my favorite.
I know what I ate to gain weight and I know what I need to eat to lose it. You can't out work a bad diet, so stop trying. Today's meal prep; chicken, lettuce, avocado, and homemade salsa. Yes!
Before we had these two, I left corporate america so that I could be a stay at home mom. I have been home with them since day 1. Who knew that a trip to the library for story time would lead us to China. That is how I learned about @nwca_social. My girls have been speaking Mandarin since the age of 3. They speak with no accent. Thanks to our business mentors, we know it is just not about making $$$, it is about having the time to be in the right place that leads you to incredible opportunities.
Most of the time we didn't know what type of meat we were eating. Sometimes it is just best to enjoy it and then ask what is it? . . . . . .
The food in Beijing was delicious! We did a lot of walking, but also a ton of eating. Most dishes consisted of meat and vegetables. The sauces were rich and flavorful. Rice was a staple for every meal. . . . . . .
Okay, so I started our trip off right by having this for breakfast for the first two mornings. They had a great salad bar and tons of fruit for breakfast. Despite my best efforts, I still gained 10 lbs over 2 weeks. I know I have a lot of inflammation, so I am focusing on reducing that first. A nice hot bath to sweat and I already dropped a pound. I will share what worked and what didn't work for me. . . . . . .
