Healthy Lunch



I have been bringing lunch to work for over a decade and I like variety. I also have some favorites. I love Chinese chicken and cucumber salad. I also love Miracle Noodle, a gluten-free, low calorie alternative. They are easy to make and taste great. My favorite is the Pho flavor. I'll definitely get more.

Give Thanks




It's time to be grateful for the blessings in our lives. It's time to pause and reflect on what's good and gather with loved ones to celebrate Thanksgiving.

I made a short gratitude list today. Here are 5 things I'm thankful for:

1. My family
2. My health
3. Free yoga
4. My teachers & people who inspire me 
5. The library

What are you grateful for?

Fall Back


Days are getting shorter and soon, it'll be Thanksgiving. This Sunday, we will turn back the clock one hour. I'd rather we don't have Daylight Saving because it takes me a few days to adjust to the time change. A few things that'll help are:

1. Exposure to sunlight
2. Have a set time to go to sleep
3. Exercise

I walk my dog every morning and I workout during lunch. I try to go to sleep around 11 pm every night. I plan to be moderate during the holidays. I will eat until I am 70-80% full and stop. I will exercise at least 6 times a week. I may even go on a few hikes during the weekends. How do you plan to have a healthy holiday?

I Love Green Festival


I took the Expo Line to Green Festival at L.A Convention Center and got free entry. I also saved on gas and parking. I love all the vendors and products, enjoyed many free samples and even won a free 5-minute massage at Good JuJu. I love the healthy snacks, the coupons, the Live Kombucha Root Beer Soda $3 www.LiveSoda.com, the I Heart Keenwah Chocolate Puffs snack $4 and the Barnana snacks (3 for $10). There's free yoga all day and I got CBD oil for my dog. It's good for anxiety.

I found out about Green Menu www.greeenmenu.org
