The Friday Stretch: A Big Dream, Athleta for Good, 2016 Abs

the walk

I hope everyone had a great first week of 2016. This week has been all about stepping into 2016 on the right foot … getting back on a writing schedule, eating clean (enough) to counterbalance the highly enjoyable holiday indulgences, enjoying some midweek ski runs, and starting to map out a few projects I’m working on.

I also caught up with some friends from SF and my old job, which was the best of all. I have a tendency to get a little reclusive and lost in my own world, so I’m making a mental note to prioritize staying connected with everyone I care about while I’m living in the sticks this winter.

Here’s some of the fitness & wellness content from around the web that inspired me this week.

Have a great weekend!

This isn’t web content, but I watched The Walk this week and loved the story of perseverance, grit and living your dream, even if people think you’re bonkers. Recommend! (iTunes)
Athleta teamed up with charity retail site Schoola to sell deeply discounted fitness apparel to benefit the Malala Fund. You can feel good about stocking up on fun leggings when the proceeds benefit girls’ eduction projects. (Well + Good)
I did this 10-minute ab workout this week and it was awesome. Blogilates founder Cassey Ho may be on the extreme side of perkiness, but she puts together some kick ass videos that always leave my muscles burning. (Blogilates)
