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.

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
