And So It Goes

2 Jul

Looking forward to the weekend! Here’s what is coming up on Well-in-L.A!

Magic Castle. Yes! A friend of a friend is getting us into this exclusive Los Angeles venue. Word on the street is you must know a magician to get in… or be famous enough to warrant entrance. Neither of which apply to us. Fun will be had!

Your true colors!

Research is a little fuzzy on color evoking specific moods or providing motivation. Anecdotally colors have associations. For instance, red can be equated with danger and energizing (think stop signs, fire alarms, ) things; green with serenity and peace (trees and nature; health is associated with green); blue with color and security (the big beautiful sky)… and on! What colors you choose may say more than you think and impact your daily life from things like your dietary choices to your motivation and work habits.

Making a healthy-n-well 4th of July menu!
Cheers to independence and thanks to all who fought hard for this country! I try to show my gratitude for life and everything that makes this country wonderful by staying healthy & well!

Here’s the menu du jour! Prep + pictures will follow each recipe entry. I’ll try to post recipes the day before.

  • Red-White-n-Blue Smoothie {breakfast}
  • Strawberry, Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad w/ Balsamic Vinaigrette.
  • Grilled Seasonal Veggies with Fresh Herbs – Eggplant, Red Peppers and Tomatoes
  • Corn on the Cob with Basil Butter
  • Grilled Chicken with a Teriyaki-Orange marinade (+ secrets to making perfect chicken – hint: it’s all about the marinade)
  • Grilled Peaches with Berry Compote; topped with FroYo, fo’sho’

    The Pursuit of Happiness
    “Dear You,
    Are you happy? How are you getting or staying there?
    With love,
    Your mental health”

    Mental health is equally important to the other components of health. A little coverage required in here!
    Week One of P90X-lite starts 
    (I’m two weeks behind the man of the house)…I think I might need to add a barometer for my level of pain… ha! Updated meal plan will be posted to my online spreadsheet (shhh… don’t tell BeachBody), as well as my work-out plan. 90 days of planned workouts, here I come!

    {{well}}Researched – highlights from the weekly research feeds! 

    PLUS…A little reformatting and working on the site… integrating social feeds and making the site easier to access and read. I love writing and engaging with people on the topic of wellness. Now I need to learn how to streamline things and be an online maven!
