I am a big preacher of the importance of meal prep. And, it is something that I don’t go a Saturday or Sunday without doing. Last week I posted THIS Live video to show you exactly what I prepped. You can watch it HERE.
You wanna know why?
I always say that we put so much emphasis on the foods that we eat, the amount of exercise we should get, and making sure that we get those 8 hours of zzzz’s a night. Don’t get me wrong, that’s really REALLY important.
Am I being dramatic here? Well, let me explain here…
Back in 2010, when my health was at it’s worst, I didn’t know what to do. I was living a very high stress lifestyle. Although I moderately ate my best and my body was craving a more vegetarian eating lifestyle, the stress I was experiencing superseded it all. I was working a minimum of 12 hour days, during an Olympic project that was beyond cray-cray. Trying to manage the level of work was near impossible.
I often work with women or listen to women who are struggling with losing weight. “I’ve been working out every day and yet I can’t lose those last 5 pounds”. Or, “I eat so healthy! I’m paleo – I’m vegan – I’m macrobiotic! And, still, I can’t lose it”.
Happiness is …. Spring time! I’m sure that you’re with me on that, right?
I am sitting in a massive craving for some sun and warmth, and mostly, REST. James and I are off to Los Angeles and Palm Springs in exactly two weeks to do just that. I’m also curious in exploring the L.A Health food scene for both research and inspiration. Even just walking through Whole Foods in the U.S is an experience all in itself since a lot of the products I see online are not available here. So, now I get to try them myself!
I’m a Human Resources Manager with a large hotel (within a large chain) in Vancouver BC. It’s a great place to work actually – great people, ever-changing, and not without it’s set of challenges like any job. This job actually keeps me connected with the women that I work with – career-driven women! I value that connection and I can honestly say that I truly understand the challenges.
I might be a bit behind the times since I’ve only just started to eat bee pollen. I mean, why have I been missing out?
What is bee pollen exactly?
What!?!? Is Julie actually implying that exercising is detrimental to my health? If that’s what you’re thinking (and now your confused or worried), hang on a quick minute and let me explain.
I’m ready for Spring. Like, ready yesterday!!! How about yourself? I think even my digestive system is confused. Normally, when the weather starts to warm up, I start craving more raw foods but that hasn’t quite happened to me yet. We have been having constant rain in Vancouver and I know that other parts of Canada and the U.S are experiencing boughts of snow. Isn’t that cray-cray?
