Bella's Life Plan for the week 3/12
Well, it is one of my favorite weeks of the year: my daughter's birthday week. She turns 22 on the 16th. I love those magical, double digit years. I'm planning to make her a Bananas Foster cake using this recipe that I found on Tik Tok (here's the video). We will also be celebrating my husband's birthday the same night because he will be traveling for a few weeks, and won't be home for his birthday. (boo!)

Movement: As I told you last week, I'm adding a LOT more movement to my every day. This week I'll be doing this video in the morning after my coffee. Right before lunch I'll do this video and at 4 pm I'll take my 30 minute hot girl walk.
My work is very sedentary, I'm sitting a my desk for a big portion of the day. Incorporating movement is important for my age and to improve my life. I want to get stronger this year, and this is the work I have to do to reach that goal. And seriously, I'm starting at zero which is why these videos are beginner style.

Food Prep: This week I prepped two batches of Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding from the Minimalist Baker to have on hand as a snack. (It is my absolute favorite). Breakfasts will be Plain Greek Yogurt with wild blueberries, honey and peanut butter granola (this brand is the only one I use it's so good!) Lunches this week are baked chicken thighs with brown rice + broccoli. Dinners are Trader Joe's Turkey Burgers (I choose these because of the clean ingredients) on top of a big salad with avocado + a few sweet potato chunks. My body feels the best when I eat higher protein, high fiber, lower carb + sugar. I eat 3 meals & 2 snacks a day with plenty of water + herbal teas. This is what makes my body feel the best.
Learning: I'm logging school hours in on Tuesday and Thursday this week, inching a tad closer to my Aromatherapy Certification. (If anyone is interested, I'm completing my certification at The School for Aromatic Studies).

New Product Alert: My Spring Oil(s) drop next week. There will be two options available: a 10 ml roll on perfume oil that smells absolutely divine and a less concentrated 4 oz body oil. I worked on this formula for a few months before I was happy with the results. I'll be chatting all about my new oil this week on Instagram! Make sure to follow me there.
