How I spent my month:
August flew by and I didn’t have a chance to recap my July! You may have noticed that my facebook page was a little quiet at the end of June/early July as I was taking a break from technology. Because I was in ITALY!!! If you haven’t been to Italy, you need to make plans to go there PRONTO (or rapidamente, if you want to be technically Italian). Our tour pretty much traversed the entire country in 15 days, so it was a bit of a whirlwind, but we got to see so much (and made a list of places to visit again at a more relaxed pace). Maybe I should write a few posts about Italy, but here is a short photo recap.
(considering I took 1,500 photos – it will be VERY short!)
What I’m reading:
From my new favorite blog – Sweat Like a Pig – comes a post about detoxes and why they don’t work. I’ve done my fair share of cleansing, detoxing and restrictive dieting (my story is here) and this post sums up nicely why I don’t want to do it again.
Another one of my favorite blogs – The Nourished Life – shows us how to reframe our goals so that they’re not centered around losing weight. Be mindful of your goals and think about what you’re actually saying to yourself.
Are you really confused about what’s “good for you” versus “what’s bad for you?” Join the club! (PS – that’s what the “experts” and marketing firms want)
New recipes to try:
Chicken Thighs and homemade BBQ sauce from Nathan Lyon? Um… yes, please!
Coconut Orange Ginger Beef Stir-fry from The Nourishing Gourmet? Put it on the meal plan!
If animals and objects actually looked how kids draw them (they would be awesome)
It happens to all of us. Our phone thinks we’re typing one thing but we actually mean something else. Check out: The Fasinatng … Frustrating … Fascinating History of Autocorrect
