Vacation food week continues!  From my last post:

While I have been doing more than just eating and cooking and going out, they’re mostly things I do to relax so they aren’t “new” necessarily.

Something New #56 – Skinny Bitch

In my travels last Friday I swung by one of my favorite book stores, Strand, and wandered into the health books section.  I’ve mentioned before my desires to ‘get healthy’ and lose a few pounds (and, also, a few roles coming up that require a sleeker look); but I’ve been having mixed results.  I workout all the time, have been training for the 5k, and even started going to kung fu, but I’m not really getting where I want to go which makes me think it’s what I’m cramming into my maw.

I was looking for YOU: The Owners Manual (which I picked up); but found a few other gems in the stacks.  Enter Skinny Bitch.

I bought it because I’d seen it on a few friends shelves and the women who wrote it have entertainment industry roots.  I’d heard good things; why not give it a try?

I read it in a day.  That day was Friday.

I have every intention of writing a comprehensive review to help the wana-be Skinny Bitches out there with there decision to drop the $$ on buying it, but rehearsal is coming up quickly.  What I will say in my quick blerb here is that I have spent most of my life intentionally avoiding anything about the treatment of animals in the food industry; not because I’m a bad person, but because I love meat.  I didn’t know going in that they would ease me in to a lot of PETA-approved information… and once I started I couldn’t stop.  And now that I’ve read it I can’t un-read it.

I haven’t eaten red meat since Thursday.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning 📸 by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! 🤦‍♀️ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I think👽) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
