Jennifer Aniston’s Secret Wellness Weapons
As a hard-core Friends fan, I was more on Team Courtney Cox than Team Jennifer Aniston. However, in recent years, I’ve found her more likable due to her public stance on living clean. This past week she was interviewed by Yahoo on her secret wellness weapons, many of which are my tools for success, too. I’m still hoping for an infrared sauna, though.

  1. Our summer break hasn’t started yet either. In two weeks!
    I’m totally not a gym person so that article seems perfect for me. And I want to do clean eating but it overwhelms me so another good one!

    • I try to be a gym person, but it seldom works. I really enjoy power walking especially in the late spring/early summer. Let me know if you use some of these ideas for your summer workout regimen. It’s really fun. Have a great rest of your week.

  2. I’ve never had a problem with clean eating. I actually CRAVE clean foods!!!! So weird, but I lust after SALMON and spinach LOL! And don’t even get me started about winter squash ;)
    GiGi Eats recently posted…You Won’t Be Waffling Over This!

    • Ooohhhh. I’m going to have to check your site for winter squash. I love it, too. I do crave pizza. That I miss, but I’ve found recipes that I like when I’m getting a craving…Enjoy Life brown rice tortillas with red sauce, veggies and nutritional yeast. I also just LOVE sweet potatoes.

  3. I like the workout ideas! I have a hard time with traditional gyms. They are just so hot and smelly to me… but playing that I can do!

    • I love the idea of gyms, but the reality is that I seldom go to them. I have a membership but can’t cancel until the end of the year. Now that summer has begun I’m really going to try and use my list with Kyle so that we can do fun activities as our exercise together. Happy #WellnessWednesday.

  4. Oh good workout at home! And wasn’t that great of the jockey to donate his winnings? Class act!
    Kristen recently posted…Trying Not to Raise a Quitter

    • Yes, as you know, we hear so much on the news about the ills in the world, it’s great when media highlights all the brave and generous celebs, athletes and everyday people.

  5. I really like this series! How fun! Thanks for sharing all the health and wellness news
    Kristin recently posted…MyDay Friday Accountability Check-in: Week 4

    • Thanks Kristin. I really love writing this series. I used to love something similar when I was in my corporate job – though the content wasn’t health and wellness the strategy was the same: find interesting industry news and highlight it for others to enjoy. Have a great week.
