Hello, sweet friends of mine! I’m super excited about today’s topic but before we get to that, we’ve got to recap the day! Today began like most: with a workout!
I created my own 40-minute strength workout using a bunch of routines that really worked my whole body! I started with the Bikini Booty and Bikini Arms routines from the Tone It Up Beach Babe DVD and followed it up with these short and very effective videos:
- Tone It Up Sleek & Slender Abs
- Tara Stiles Cardio Yoga part 1
- Tara Stiles Yoga Challenge
- Valerie Waters Pump it on the Patio
I was drenched in sweat by the end. If you try pairing these routines, let me know how it goes!
After working at the clinic, I came home and prepared a fantastic stir fry, thanks to Trader Joe’s!
In a small wok, I sauteed 3/4 cup organic & sprouted tofu, broccoli, mushrooms, 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast, and one big handful of spinach in 1 tsp. coconut oil and 2 Tbsp. Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. I garnished it with fresh mint leaves, which really brought out all of the wonderful flavors. Served with sweet potato wedges (what else?) and a squirt of organic ketchup, it was a meal of my dreams.
Let’s Talk Idols
It’s another vlog day, my friends! Today, I really wanted to break down the subject of idols. Although people will always have the inclination to make idols out of people and/or things, I’ve been seeing it pop up more frequently around the social media realms of Instagram and Pinterest – and it’s time to squash ‘em…because they are not healthy for us! I have to give a huge shout out to my soul sister Gabrielle Bernstein, for inspiring me to take my own journey towards ridding myself of the idols in my life.
Let’s get to it!
