I was going to jump straight into the upcoming Thanksgiving Holidays, but after 7 days of having a hard time breathing here in California, I thought I’ll check the air stats for today, because it seems to be getting worse and worse.
I was right! So far, this has been the worst day (see image below), and I have chosen the worst part of the Bay Area, it seems, for my office location. By the time I had annotated the image, the number actually went up to 407!
While breathing masks are great, you cannot eat or drink through them! I cannot even drink water without big inhales of air. Who knew? You never pay attention to these things, until a situation like this arises.
I hope you and your loved ones are safe! If you are in California, I read a great article earlier about how to deal with air pollution like this, that I will link to below.
In preparation for the holidays, though, I found some good resources in my Inbox for healthy, anti-inflammatory recipe alternatives to your favorite Thanksgiving dishes that I want to share with you as well.
And last, I really enjoyed recording this week’s 🎤 podcast for you. It’s all about starting a walking program and comes with a great free guide too. So, make sure to check it out! 😃
I also announced that I will not be releasing a new podcast episode next week because of Thanksgiving, and just decided that it will make sense to do the same for the newsletter. That’s after 31 consecutive weeks! But, as I stated in the podcast episode, I have to lead by example, and put my inner perfectionist in its place! 😉
I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and we’ll continue the conversation in 2 weeks. In the meantime, you’ll have time to catch up on any missed podcast episodes and/or begin planning your new walking program. 🚶♀
