Hey guys, in my previous post we learned about yogi professional Leah Cullis and the benefits that yoga provides. Below is a video I shot for a ‘Smartphone Video’ class that I took at Columbia College Chicago that presented a yoga class and it participants in all their vulnerabilities. It has truly inspired me not only to learn more about the craft of yoga but to practice it as well.

What I like most about salads is the fact that they are so quick and easy to make. It takes no time to grab a bunch of your favorite fruits and vegetables, toss them around in a bowl, add a drizzle of salad dressing and you’re done. You can make them as simple or as fancy as you’d like.

Ok guys, if you’re in Chicago then you’re probably as excited as I am that the sun is finally out and you can go outside without a ton of layers weighing you down. But now, we’re faced with another dilemma, getting out of the house and finding fun activities to enjoy. Well, I’m here to calm your anxiety just a bit. Below are a list of some fun events happening in or near Chicago in the upcoming weeks. I highly encourage you to try them out and tell me what you think. It’s always fun when you can get out, grab some friends and just have a good time, no matter what you decide to do.

For my friends outside of Chicago, use my list as an inspiration to get online and find some fun events in your area. Try something new like that restaurant you’ve been dying to go to, whatever it is, for God’s sake, just promise me that you’ll have some fun. Even if you suck at cooking, go to a cooking class, what’s the worst that could happen? Ok, I can conjure up about a million bad things that can happen, but who cares, have FUN!

Mondays are always so very hard for me. After a relaxing weekend, the last thing I want to do is drag myself out of bed at 6am to head to that place called a job. I mean, how bad would it be if we all didn’t have jobs and were allowed to lay around in our PJs all day watching reruns of The Cosby Show? Yea, we’d probably fall back on bills and run out of pocket change for pizza, but we’d be relaxed and happy, and that’s all that matters, right?!

Okay, okay, back to reality. Maybe the second best thing would be a burst of energy on those slow mornings to give us the kick that we need. The Green Juice movement has been growing in popularity and has literally taken over the Internet. I will admit, when I first heard about it, I thought it was another quick-fix scheme that everyone was getting sucked into…again. Then, when I realized it was a ton of vegetables mixed in a glass, I immediately threw the idea out the window. Everyone who knows me, knows that I would rather be eaten alive by an alligator than to eat vegetables. Yea, that’s a bit dramatic, but it’s sadly just me.
