The Pursuit of StyleAs January came to a close this week, I found myself feeling disappointed in what I had accomplished in the first month of the New Year. Re-committing to green juicing and clean eating didn’t happen, I never signed up for that first barre class I wanted to, and this blog fell by the wayside as wedding planning frustratingly began to consume my life–well, at least my free time–and all the changes I had hoped to implement moved to the back burner.

But that’s the beauty of a new month (or week, or even day!) it’s a clean slate. I decided February 1 would be my chance to course correct and re-center after feeling like things had started to spin out of my control. So here we go. Inspiration for turning over a new leaf!

For Your Netflix Queue:
-I never expected to find professional motivation in a film about an 85 year old sushi legend, but this one lit a fire under my butt. The most memorable quote: “Once you decide on your occupation… you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That’s the secret of success… and is the key to being regarded honorably.”

For Your Frame of Mind:-I wish I had watched this video before heading to the frame store earlier this week. Can’t wait to share my new art all gussied up.

For 30 Days:-I’ll be doing this. I’m hoping that posting about it here will keep me accountable. Has anyone else tried it?
-Looks like I’ll be ordering these for the next month!

For Your Inner Monet:-I’m obsessed with this new app. Everything looks better in watercolor. I bet it’s a great way to entertain little ones too (judging by how much fun I have watching it do its magic!)

For the State of the Blog:
This was an interesting article and something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. What comes next?

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

  1. Hi Lindsay,

    I did the Whole 30 program last November. I ended up losing 15 pounds in a month (!!) but it was no cake walk :). What I learned is how sadly dependent my body was on sugar, caffeine and nastiness; that it’s not easy to follow the plan while eating out (if you’re all in); that it takes preparation; and that ghee is your friend. In the end I felt a million times better.

    I’m starting up again today, so if you have questions or need moral support feel free to give me a shout!

    • I’m only on day 3, but judging from these headaches my body is wayy too dependent on sugar, caffeine and nastiness as well! So good to hear a success story. Keeps me motivated to push through! xx

  2. I had never heard of the Whole 30 program and hats off to you (and the other commenter) for going cold turkey in all those categories! I am a health blogger and would love to hear how the pursuit flows for you. Please post about it and the very best of luck. Your body will be thankful, I am sure!
