Mindfulness: a herky jerky mind holiday

•••
My mind can be all over the place, jumping from one subject to the other during a wide range of random activities. I always liked being able to entertain myself with nothing but my own mind, my internal conversations and wanderlust inside my own head, thinking about the past, future and non-existing times, subjects, ideas and fantasies. This may sound like I[...]

Grounded in intention, lifting to gratitude - Why Yoga?

•••
All my life I've been involved in some type of physical activity, most of the time dancing. I have a classical education, experienced many other genres (jazz, contemporary, tap ...) and I've also done swimming, fitness, gymnastics, circus trial lesson and... well, better stop here. Without really knowing how or why I came to my first yoga class and knew it w[...]

I'm down with the first two days of my Milk & Sugar health challenge and I have to say I've been pleasantly surprised. Though, not without some ups and downs. This particular health challenge includes swapping smoothies (full of vegetables, fruit, and protein) for meals, with snacks in between for five days, attempting to cut all meat, added sugar, caff[...]

Vegan health meal for Brook

•••
Today is Monday, the start of a new week and the first day of the month, and I had it all planned to write about the Meatless Monday movement. But after a super busy weekend with no internet, I read Brook's post and then changed my mind - just a little bit. I decided to write about something bigger: the will to take the first step, and to give you a quick an[...]

Health Challenge #1

•••
How blogging with a bunch of models and health nuts has inspired me to not be a slob. For a week anyway. Anyone who has navigated over to Milk & Sugar’s author biographies will see that this blog boasts a number of beautiful, healthy, and, let’s be real, hot bod bloggers. I, on the other hand, am over here just eating a hamburger with a side of pizza. I[...]

Victoria's Secret: How to get an Angel Body?

It's December, the time of the year you prepare yourself for a good TV show. Get some cheese, chips, wine and settle in front of the TV. The annual Victoria’ Secret show starts. The only time a year when your boyfriend doesn’t mind watching a fashion show. For a short time: I find myself in bikini heaven… And then I look down and start to realize: Damn, I go[...]
