Here’s the first step of making your abs in the kitchen…
Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen information – Check out the list so you can decide which produce items to buy organic and which types don’t have a high pesticide residue in the conventional version (clean 15).
- Eliminate “Gunk” from your diet
- Eat True Food Nutrients
Eating this way creates the foundation for making your abs in the kitchen (i.e. reaching your ideal body composition and shape). I’ll post the next step soon!
Side note: I shot this video in my cousin’s apartment, i.e. Pottery Barn 🙂
News/Notes: I’m finally feeling back to normal after spending 10 days eating jelly beans and pizza (seriously, I did that), drinking too much wine, and not sleeping enough in NY. My Mom reminded me that last week while I was there visiting, I kept saying that I couldn’t believe I was eating/drinking that way and not being active (at all!) and getting away with it. Well, I wasn’t getting away with it… there was just a delay before it caught up with me in the form of laryngitis, a cold, brain fog, exhaustion, and well… a Case of the Blahs.
I came back, cut down on my coffee intake (again), stopped eating (so much) junk, and started walking and doing yoga again (although I’ll admit I’m having trouble getting into the yoga habit–for some reason I don’t want to do that when I feel blah even though I know it will help!). I’ve been home for a week, and I’m starting to feel pretty good again.
Also, I’m obsessed with prosciutto and goat gouda (for vitamin K2!) right now. I’m loving having access to Classic GT Kombucha (grape!), and although I skipped a few days of gelatin intake while in NY, I’m back on the wagon now (update soon!).
Yesterday, I was stressed out because Joe (the ex but still bff) was running in the Boston Marathon, and although I knew he was done running at the time the explosions happened, I also know he’s likely to cheer for people crossing the finish line. Luckily, he was ok and not near there, but it was quite an anxiety filled day for the people who care about him and for anyone who heard about the events and watched the news. I won’t say how I feel about the news coverage—other people can go there, but I want to say that I love Boston and my heart aches for the people affected. I walked yesterday at the beach and said a special prayer, sent as much love as I could in their direction, and tried to focus on the displays of humanity rather than the terror. I know the people affected cannot avoid the terror feelings and dealing with the aftermath, and I can only hope they can find some peace.
See you soon, my Friends.
