When 2015 was coming Pinterest and Instagram were floated with good intentions and quotes. ‘This is my year’ kept popping up, so I took it by heart and made it mine.
2015 will be my year! After spending the last years in what feels like a rat race and looking back a lot seemed to be done in survival modus it’s time to take a step back and nourish my mind, body and soul again. Going back to what I want and making sure that 2015 will not be filled with never ending to-do lists, but filled with what-have-I-achieved lists.
Cara Alwill, The Champagne Diet, started it all with her post on turning selfish into self-love. I admit sometimes it is easier to focus on other people’s wishes and happiness than on my own. So time to look what I want to achieve and what makes me happy this year and take matters in my own hands. What better guide can there be than one with glitter and glam? Starting to fill the pages with a lot of action steps!
Becoming a stronger person will not just happen on the inside, but also on the outside (or is that the inside as well?).
Anyway, my frolleague introduced me to Cassey & Blogilates and it was love at first sight. Not every muscle and body part would agree with the love part, but like Cassey says ‘Sore today, Strong tomorrow’. What I like most about her youtube channel is the structure (you can download your monthly workout calendar) and you can do it in the safety of your own home (don’t want to cause accidents when you laugh so hard of the sight of me struggling with my abs) and her movies are rather short (you’ll need to do several movies in a row though). Call me crazy, but I have the idea that after 3 weeks it is slightly showing…
Okay… I might be crazy cause I fell for the Tiny Tea detox hype. I’ve been seeing stunning before/ after pictures and I went for it. I don’t believe in miracles (or at least not the diet kind of miracles, but still believe in prince charmings, unicorns and waking up to a closet as beautiful as the one of Carrie). But we get distracted, Your Tea is not about dieting, it’s about herbs and a healthy lifestyle. Exactly what I need, get back on track to feeling strong and healthy in and outside.
Keep you posted on the results. I did take a before picture. Show it to you? Well that will depend on the post picture…
An apple a day keeps the doctor away… I wonder if an episode from Once upon a time a day keeps the doctor away… keep you posted! Got to go and nourish my Netflix addiction cause after all that hard work I need some relaxation.
A bite of the big apple:
I think that you all know by now how much I’m intrigued by everything New York City Related. My NYC love introduced me to Cara Alwill and her Champagne Diet (just in case you don’t know it’s not about a food diet). Ever since Cara added a sparkling touch & some glamour to my life. Just what I love!
You can sign up for private or group coaching or free cocktail power calls. But what I have highly on my to achieve list is her VIP Day at the Plaza! Brainstorming together on how I can make my NYC dreams into reality, my passion into my job and my worries into happiness. Yes, exactly my cup of tea (or more appropriate, my flute of champagne), focusing on your goals in the luxury of the Plaza. It will make me feel inspired and on top of the world. Start spreading the news…
First things first, I’ll start with my Glitter, Guts & Glam Program! Keep an eye on the blog for the result and in the mean time… enjoy a glass of champagne.
