I first started sending this out via a weekly newsletter. That was all fine and good but once you read it, it got lost in the shuffle of all the emails you have filling your inbox. So, I thought I would try something new for a few weeks and put it right here, on my blog, and see what happens!
If you are new to my "Weekly What's Up"....WELCOME! This is a place where I share a few of my favorite things from the past week! They can range from food to books to mantras...nothing is off limits! So, let's dive in!

Reishi Hot Cacao. Now- let me start by saying I do not like mushrooms but I love this. I have it nightly to help quench my sweet tooth and help me unwind and prepare for bed.
*side note: I drink it with vanilla soymilk. I have tried with almond milk and water and it just tastes like dirt. So...beware of what you mix it with!

Do you Whoop? Whoop is a small band you wear on your wrist that provides biofeedback data such as sleep, recovery and daily strain. While I think it's the coolest thing, I didn't know too much about it. This Barbell Shrugged Podcast spoke with the creator or Whoop and gave some insight on why it can be a helpful tool to measure stress load on each individual.
R E P E A T I N G . . .
HAVE A CHILL. Seriously. You need to hear it as much as I do I'm sure...but SLOW DOWN! Things take time...even time takes time. So whether you are considering a change in fitness, nutrition or life in general, remember to SLOW DOWN, allow time to work and have a chill. What you are doing might be working it just takes a minute to see the results. You have to allow time to work its course and trust the process. Don't worry about what Sally or Joe are doing. You do you!
