5 Things That Inspired Me This Week 12/18/15

Each week I compile a list of 5 things that inspired me to be healthier and happier throughout the previous week. This helps me think about what makes me stay motivated to feel my best. I also hope that sharing these ideas may help motivate you to try incorporating some of these ideas into your lives as well. Feel free to leave a comment and share your own weekly inspiration. I’d love to hear from you!


Holiday Festivities


As I get older I grow more and more fond of the holiday season. The past few weeks have been full of festivities and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all! Here are a few examples:


I sang the national anthem in front of 500 people at the Plymouth Township/Junior Chamber Tree Lighting…




JUST KIDDING. Thankfully (for everyone’s sake), I just welcomed everyone to the tree lighting.




Detroit Athletic Club Family Christmas Party:


DAC party


Our tree decorated at home:


riley tree


Detox Water




So refreshing! Slice up a lemon and add some frozen fruit then fill with water. I haven’t been able to get enough!


10 (err…7)-Spice Vegetable Soup


10 spice vegetable soup


Wow….all I can say is wow. I had 5 (small) bowls when we first made this recipe. It just kept calling me back for more!


Meal Planning




After multiple meals involving take out or restaurant meals, it feels so good to make meals with whole foods full of veggies. I compiled a blog post about my week here. Another one to come soon.


Kombucha Brewing


I brewed my first batch of kombucha over the last week… I’ll spare you a picture until it’s finished! If you’re not familiar with the ‘buch, it’s fermented tea with a bunch of health benefits. Being someone terrified of food poisoning, we’ll see if I even get the guts to try my own batch! Fingers crossed all goes well.


Have a wonderful weekend!
