October In Review

After spending August and September happily running around Northern California on a wonderful Summer of adventures, I was thrilled to settle back in San Francisco come October.

I worked on some writing, did some photo shoots, attended some fun events…

Fashion & Beauty:

This month I fell in love with the luxurious separates from Les Lunes and ran around San Francisco in their gorgeous pieces.

Perfect for pairing with my existing workwear and my new Rag & Bone trench coat from The Real Real.

My favorite thing about being home? Aside from kitty cuddles, it’s getting back into the kitchen. This month was filled with delicious, healthy fare – From Vegan Buddha Bowls to fresh Tomato & Bean Salads to guilt-free Butternut Squash Mac n’ Cheese.

I kept up with my goal to push myself physically this month by expanding my workouts.

Lifting and squats played a major part in getting my booty in shape this month, and I gave Barre class a go as well.

My favorite new workout though has got to be the Orange Theory bootcamp I tried in Walnut Creek!

  1. Publish: A new plan has emerged in connection with my “personal” writing so stay tuned for more!
  2. Move: I upped my short-distance runs this month to three a week. My weekly schedule looks something like this right now: Monday, Wednesday & Friday – 3 mile midday run and yoga, Barre, or Pilates after work. Tuesday & Thursday – Lifting, rolling & stretching. Loving the new schedule!
  3. Grateful: I adore Fall and just walking outside has put a huge grin on my face all month. I love the weather, the pumpkins, the clothes, the upcoming holidays… #FallFever
  4. Habits: It can be daunting to start thinking about your New Years Resolutions for the year during the Fall/Winter. What have you accomplished? What goals did you miss? What I’m trying to do instead of beating myself up is to reframe my ambitions for the year – Why didn’t this happen? Did I not have time or did it just not seem important once I discovered something else? This helps me figure out what I really want!

Are YOU ready to get into holiday season?
