- The Whole 30: So I'm on a new 30-day nutrition plan called Whole 30. I have to credit Erika from Style Activist with putting me onto this plan. I had been searching far & wide for a good detox/body reset to finish off my summer and bring me healthily into the fall/winter season. And so far, it is working amazingly well! I've dropped a dress size in just two weeks and I have more energy than I ever thought possible. I'm crafting a blog post about it this week, so stay tuned for further details. In the mean time, click over to Grit & Glamour's "Get Started on Getting Healthy" post. She has a TON of great advice and links to the Whole 30 plan.
- Laugh & Love: I spent this weekend running the streets with one of my partners-in-crime Sandrine Charles (see her luxuriousness in the pic on top left). I had been feeling kind of down last week so instead of jam-packing my weekend with to-do's, I kept my schedule wide open and just...lived. Spend one day a month with absolutely nothing on your to-do list. And spend time with people who make you laugh - it's good for your health.
- That Juice: I hate greens. Yeah, I said it. The new plan I'm on REQUIRES the ingestion of leafy greens and, at first, I thought I might die slowly. You want me to eat greens? Hell nawl. I hate them. But I found a trick! Juicing. I can ingest an entire bag of Kale or Spinach if it is juiced with a hint of apple, carrot and ginger. Voila! Farm to cup.
