Chi-to-Be by Stacey Hall- Book Review

Maybe I’m a little biased because I know this author in real life and I LOVE HER. She’s been a great friend and mentor to me in many ways- but this is seriously one of the best books I’ve ever read.

I read Chi-to-Be about a year ago on a day when I wasn’t feeling too well. It was an irritable, eating chocolate, laying on my couch kind of day that happens to me about once a month. (Ladies, you know what I mean..)

I was waiting for Netflix to load and I was about to binge on Grey’s Anatomy when I decided to open Chi-to-Be and skim through it to see what it was all about.

Well, that didn’t work out like I expected. I read the whole book in one day and never pushed play on Netflix. (You know something’s good for me to choose it over Meredith Grey and McDreamy’s “will they? won’t they?” drama..

In this video I’ll explain exactly why I love Chi-to-Be by Stacey Hall and how it’s helped me to reach my goals.

I’m not a big “New Years Resolutions” type of girl.

When I decide I want to change something, I start that day or prepare to start at the beginning of the next month. I make quarterly and monthly goals because a year is just too far ahead for me to plan for.

I do however, use my birthday as my “New Year” but it’s more of a “what I want for my life” kind of way and less of a “resolution” way… Does that make sense?

I also use my birthday as a chance to be really reflective over the past year. I try to focus on the highlights and not dwell on any low-lights, unless there was a valuable lesson to be learned or something.

Yesterday, I turned 28. So before I begin living the highlights that my 29th year will bring, I’m going to share some highlights from my 28th.

So without further adieu and in no particular order, here they are…

Going to Maui

This was my first time in Hawaii. It was a dream Valentine’s week spent relaxing, exercising, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and lots more with the love of my life.

This Food Babe is my Girl Crush

by Danielle Ford on

Seriously, I love Food Babe.

I’ve changed my diet a lot in this past year.

First I started by juicing vegetables and fruits at least once a day.

Then I cut out most dairy. I switched completely to almond milk and with the exception of cheese sometimes (not a big cheese fan, though), I rarely have it.

Next by cutting out about 90% of meat. I still eat chicken and fish once in a blue moon.

Then I added in supplements like vegan protein, maca powder, fish oil, essential oils, apple cider vinegar.. just to name a few.

Now that I’m approximately 1/2 way finished with writing my first book and feel like I’ve gotten the hang of it, I think that I have enough knowledge to teach others how they can write the first half of their own how-to/self-help book. Supplies you’ll need: *Computer *Paper *Pencils *Tissues *Ice cream *Something throwable
