this looks soooo gooood
I cannot even begin to describe the bliss and magic cultivated at this year’s WLSquaw… I truly can’t. But I will try my best.
Thursday, July 17
We actually didn’t have a pass for Thursday. We had Sage (3-day) tickets for Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. But the awesome thing about WL is that you can still have a blast without a full ticket. You can still shop, get free samples, watch performances, and…
Okay, wow. Sorry for being MIA. I disappeared to Wanderlust Fest (full post coming soon) and I was so busy! Here’s a semi-roundup of how the rest of my One Week of Vegan challenge went.
So I’m going to sum this up as best as I can. For a more detailed post about Wanderlust Fest, click here (link coming soon!).
First off, I want to mention that yes, there is a lack of food here. Wanderlust is…
So… You follow me on two blogs yet you dislike me enough to wrongly say I’ve gained weight and critique my FABULOUS pants that I would wear everyday forever and ever? I think you’ve got the problem, buddy, not me. Unfollow and spread kindness instead of being ugly and mean.
I’m confused because 1) I haven’t posted a photo of myself on here in a long time and 2) I’m actually in the best shape of my life and I’ve never been so fit so you are mistaken and a monkey ass.

At school I did and hour or more of hot yoga 6-7 days a week. At home since starting my full time internship I hardly do it which sucks. I’ve been instead taking nightly walks with my dog.
You’d be surprised. When you eat intuitively you become more aware of your cravings and hunger. More often than we think we eat when we’re not hungry, and becoming more in tune with your body will help you recognize that. That’s how you lose/gain weight.
I’m grouping days 2 & 3 together because both are work days!
Let’s start with yesterday:
Monday went really well. I started my day with peanut butter toast, coffee and fruit. For lunch I brought a huge sushi bowl—which evidently was not enough food. I was really hungry within the hour because I made my bowl with more veggies and less rice. By 1pm I was ready for a snack so grabbed my coin bag and…
By the time you’re at the end of your reps (no more than 12-15) you should be DYING to lift that thing. If you get to that twelve rep and you’re feeling it, but not really struggling, then go up a weight, even if that means doing less reps.
For all of you who don’t know, I’m trying out vegan for a week. From today till next Sunday I’ll be vegan. I decided to try it because Wanderlust Fest is this weekend and I want to feel amazing. Lately I’ve consumed a lot more meat than usual because of the holiday, work lunches, left overs, and outings. I feel heavy and gross and my skin is showing it. I eat really close to vegan normally, but I thought giving myself a full week of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and yoga would help me look and feel much better.
Tonight I’ll post my day one update on my website nourishmydirt.com. It’ll include my intake, thoughts on day one, and a recipe that I made today (raw vegan coconut/banana cream pie, anyone?!).
Hope you all are well x
Thank you so much!!! ❤️
I never struggled with wrist pain, but almost everyone does when they first start yoga. I think it was because I did heavy weight lifting before starting yoga so I had a pretty strong grip already!
But! Never fear! Wrist pain is normal and will go away with more practice! Promise! Both my parents and some friends I know said they had sore wrist their first practices, but it will go away! In the mean time, keep practicing, rest when your wrists ache, and do light wrist stretches afterwards!
