Week In Review!

Leave a comment

February 3, 2013 by Darlene McC

It’s now officially February.  For many the Whole30 is over, others are housing through the goal setting activities we set out for you, and no doubt many others are feeling overly pressured and just want a cupcake and a nap.  With so much out there clogging up the interwebs we thought it might be time to introduce an Amazon Week In Review! Some articles you might have missed, blogs you might love, and other sweet stuff going down.

Broken Boy

This morning’s #1 emailed NYTimes article is The Boy With The Thorn in His Joints.

A client sent it to me this morning and I cried for this little boy and his mother.  Shephard was 3 when he had the onset of juvenile idiopathic arthritis that debilitated him.  Through changing his diet and other “alternative” treatments he’s in remission, and only relapses when he has some gluten.

This feels like a bit of a win for the Paleo community, and also like a valuable resource article for you to be able to pass to friends and family when they say your Whole30 is insane.  Also, that 6 week number keeps coming up.

Shephard’s story also feels like reading the worst nightmares for potential parents who have joint and immuno disorders.  These are the fears of those of us who want to reproduce.  It’s good to know there’s hope if they come true.

Go Red For Women

Friday was Go Red For Women day, and I missed it for the umpteenth time.  It’s the annual Friday event where we’re all supposed to wear red and remind women to take care of their hearts.  To do our part, here are a few facts about women and heart disease you should know:

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
