5 Things To Add To Your Diet After Vacation [yep, I said add]

Good morning! How was your weekend? I spent the last week or so in Chicago — my favorite (U.S.) city (I’ll recap it soon!). I used to feel like I needed to cleanse or detox post-vacation.

Q&A SERIES: HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH + SUPER WOMAN, SIMI BOTIC

Hi, there! I’m back with my 2nd post in my new Q&A Series and I’m super, super excited about today’s guest, Simi Botic.

Why You Should Ditch the Scale [+ 5 better ways to measure your progress]

I’m just going to come out and say it: for the most part, weighing yourself is a huge waste of time. Unless, of course, you’re on the high school wrestling team and trying to make weight, there’s no point in looking to a number on the scale each day.

You might think I’m nuts or that I just don’t get how useful it is, but hear me out. You might think, “But how else will I know whether what I’m doing is working?!”
