This way of eating can be easier (for many) than calorie or macro counting.

Lots of ways work to get a sense of what you are ingesting — here is one from Precision Nutrition. As always, it's possible to adjust recommendations to suit your personalized, individual needs.
Most people who count calories for weight loss or weight management assume it’s an exact science. It’s not. Here we outline 5 reasons calorie counting (i.e. logging your food to calculate intake) is fundamentally flawed.

Love gifts are a lovely. Thinking about how I can give and receive more of them.
I noticed that her M.O., with the people close to her, is all love gifts, all the time. Can you give and receive more in your life?

Revisiting the bent press with +Neghar Fonooni. :) 
The truth is, you don't press the kettlebell up — you press yourself down underneath it in this excellent old-time strongman lift.

Sometimes you meet a person, and that person happens to be participating in your virtual powerlifting meet AT THAT VERY MOMENT.

What does creativity look like for you? 
There are lots of ways to be creative, and you ARE creative.

The cardio cure.:)
 
The easy way to cure a headache: http://spr.ly/6263BgguB
A jog a day could keep your headaches at bay: Regular cardio workouts may prevent migraines, a growing body of research suggests. Migraine patients had fewer headaches after doing 40-minute cycling workouts three times a week for three months, according to a Swedish study.

Words I stand by: Your goals should make you feel powerful in your body, not meet someone else's standards.

I was more than happy to share my thoughts on the subject of women and muscle size here in this +Women's Health  article alongside friends and homies such as Erin Brown. I'm more apt than ever these days to, rather than be all "DON'T WORRY, YOU WON'T GET BIGGER IN THE SLIGHTEST IF YOU LIFT WEIGHTS!" to note that while you will never accidentally become a bodybuilder, muscle is a damn good thing. And maybe it's worth considering shifting our goals to reflect that.

Embrace your bigness, anyone? <3‪

#‎embraceyourbigness‬
In high schoool, I worked with a strength coach in the off-season of track. At one point, my mom told me that I needed to back off the weights because my arms looked “manly." Ouch. But I'm not the only one that's faced this critique.

An ode to the friends who will talk you down, call you out, and always, always have your back.

Favorite boutique in the world. I stop here every time I'm in Philly and clean the place out (or do as much damage as I can on my budget).:)
