Please excuse the bad word in the title, this one is worth it. Happy New Year!
Apparently my memory is quite accurate. No wonder I am so drawn to this look. From the Mamacita herself, in response to this morning’s post…..
“Honey, Just for the record…………. you only wore bathing suits and tutus or just bathing suits year round for several years. You did concede to wear tights with your rig in the winter!! xx”
Once upon a time, on a magical island 7 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, lived a pack of wild turkeys. During the summer they were forced to keep to the woods to avoid the hordes of people who descended upon their home. After Labor day, they reclaimed their home and their freedom. Their days consisted of roaming over their lands, eating tics and other tiny creatures. Travelling in a large group, with plumage galore, they ruled their roost.
And then one day in October, two HUMANS came to their home and simply would NOT leave. So they chased those pesky humans, squawked at them, blocked their car as they tried to get to the house, sat in the trees over the driveway to stare with a hairy eyeball. They stalked the humans, came onto their porch and chased them up the road. Finally one day, about a week later, they left. Phew. Peace and quiet was restored to their island kingdom.
I was reprimanded by my best friend this morning while out on our run about my lack of postings as of late. I know I know. The truth is that it has been a very busy start to the month with some exciting new things in the works. It has reminded me that it is often when we get really busy that our healthy habits are the first thing to go. Sure it is easy to go to that extra yoga class and make some fresh juice when you are working 4 hours a day but not so when work gets bigger. So perhaps you commit to maintaining the most basic of heathy habits: eating whole foods. Below is my favorite salad of the week, loaded with fiber and protein and sweetness.
