Hey guys! Happy Thursday! Almost the weekend – wahoo! I started my day with a Power Flow yoga class. It’s been way too long since I’ve been on the mat. Today’s class was great. Work was pretty busy so I came home and relaxed by taking Maizey on a walk. I love more daylight in the evenings so I can walk her!
Today I got some good news about my health – my overall cholesterol, body fat percentages, and triglyceride levels were down! My company includes blood work panels and health evaluations as part of our benefits, and I’ve had very high cholesterol for the past 4 years. The only thing that has kept me off medication was that my good levels of cholesterol balance out the bad. But today, I found out that my bad cholesterol levels dropped a lot! I’m now in the “healthy” range. I think the biggest impact was eliminating gluten and dairy because I’ve had the results both while eating meat and while not eating meat. Anyway, I was super excited to see that drop!
Anyway, I wasn’t really planning on going into all that, SO let’s get back to business.
You’ve probably noticed the new blog design. New header, new sidebar, new fonts. I LOVE it! Holly from The Healthy Everythingtarian did all the design and implementation for me. She is crazy talented. We went through multiple rounds trying to find the perfect design and she was patient with me through all my edits, tweaks, and indecisiveness. 🙂 I’m thrilled with where we landed for the header. (She said she was inspired by J.Crew for the look which I love! She knows me well and totally considered my style and personality in the design process. 🙂 ) If you want to refresh your blog, I highly recommend working with Holly. Plus, she’s just freaking awesome as a person. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know she is in high demand so if you are thinking of a redesign, reach out quick to get in her queue!
Alright, gotta run! I have dinner plans tonight! Don’t forget to enter the book giveaway! It’s been somewhat comforting to know i’m not the only one who has struggled with emotional eating, but a little disheartening too to hear because I know how frustrating it is to deal with. I hope the book can finally help some of you! <3
