Links I Love 8.0

Not gonna lie, I’ve been all over the internet lately. I’m feeling a technology detox coming on… But until then, here’s some cool/funny/informative stuff I’ve found. Medium.com com has a handy guide for those who struggle with how to dress for their “body type”. Here’s a great diagram that will help you look beyond the…

The Clean Plate Day 28

I managed to fit in some yoga AND a nice walk on beautiful day 28. I felt very accomplished. My activity level has been all over the place due to my schedule and I HATE THAT. I love consistency in my active life (well… in everything actually. I can be a bit of a control…

The Clean Slate Day 22

Tiny Buddha has some encouragement if you are going through a time of growth. “Then one day, I considered that maybe this mindset was paralyzing me. I wondered if maybe I was actually hindering my growth by expecting growth to be linear.” Speaking of non-linear growth, in my current attempt at maintaining a daily meditation…

The Clean Slate Day 21 and a Recipe

It’s been 3 weeks! Only nine days left 🙂 As I mentioned yesterday, my gym is starting a 30 day Fitness Challenge today! During the kick-off meeting, I got a lot of questions about SNACKS. For those who feel stuck on what they should eat between meals, I’ve compiled some great suggestions and pics of…

The Clean Slate Day 19

Day 19 wasn’t so much a “clean slate”. It was more like a food extravaganza. Between the liver smoothie, the french fries, the red wine, and the swedish banana dessert… I’d say we were off in some unfamiliar territory.  My husband and I drove down to San Diego to visit some close friends for dinner….

The Clean Slate Day 16

I’m now in the second half of my Clean Slate journey. Today figured I would recap the details of the challenge for those who are reading this for the first time, and as a little encouragement for me to keep going! My 3 main goals at the beginning of these 30 days: To stop texting…

The Clean Slate Day 14 and a Story

I can always tell when I burn myself at work because when I get into a hot yoga studio, the burn will sting. Don’t ask me why I don’t notice while I’m cooking. I don’t know. Update on my digestion (aren’t you excited?!?!) It’s been doing okay… not perfect. I’m pretty convinced that apples and…

The Clean Slate Day 11

Another gorgeous day in Southern California. Day 11 was not a completely “clean” slate day. I had a bit of chocolate (which has sugar… a no-no), but I made a choice to indulge a bit and that’s fine by me. I made some of paleOMG’s delicious coconut cups out of her cookbook (and on her…

The Clean Slate Day 8

Day 8 was another mellow workout day. I joined in a hot yoga class in the morning and then walked to Ellie’s Table for a latte and some sunshine (its 80 degrees in Orange County!) After finally getting some good rest and recovery, I finally feel good enough to get back to the kettle bells…

The Clean Slate Day 4

The theme of Day 4 definitely had to be exercise.  I casually agreed to visit a local crossfit that morning and then realized I also had a Lean and Lovely training day with my husband later in the morning. So I did both. And yoga in the park. Needless to say, I was very tired…
