In all honesty, while I appreciate the week and the opportunity each day brings me, I am so ready for the weekend. I love mornings where I don’t have to rush off anywhere and can sit at home and write and sip my coffee.
I am putting the finishing touches on my Fit With Adele Lifestyle Program that opens this January 4th and am so very excited to help women find a sustainable, enjoyable approach to health and fitness. More to come on that program soon.
As for now here are 5 of my favorite things this week in health, fitness, and mindset.
Thrusters are my exercise of choice these days and I have a whole toolbox full of different variations. I love this weighted variation to add in the mix as many of the current variations I use are with bands or simply my own bodyweight. It is definitely more challenging than I initially thought when I first started doing them.
THIS is the easiest, most delicious dressing I have ever made and I will label it Mediterranean style as it is made with artichoke hearts, Kalmalata olives and sun dried tomatoes. I am sending this out along with my other favorite veggie recipes to my email list this week. You can add yourself here. I also use it over chicken or even as a dip.
Sometimes I think it feels like we don’t have a grasp or say as to what is going to happen to us in the future, with our jobs, relationships or the shape of our bodies. And while we do not have direct control over the outcome, we do have control over the choices we make each day. When I take ownership for my decisions, good or bad, it is when I feel most powerful. It makes me feel like I have the most control, because when it comes to my choices, I do.
This 80 degree weather in SoCal is just lovely this week, although I think a cool down is coming. I use to get down over rainy or cloudy days, but just like life I now take them for what they are, not what I think it should or should not be.
Trader Joes got the best of me this past week with their festive flowers and coffee. No worries though #becausecoffee and I love buying myself flowers. It is fun to use the holiday flavors to sample each day.
