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:

#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
