YouTube Limelight: Marissa Lace

Each month I will feature one of my favourite YouTube channels, sharing the little things I like about them & of course the video I like best. This month is Marissa Lace. I was introduced to Marissa’s channel via Nikki Blackketter.
I know this video is a little bit old, but as we are not far into the second half of the year it’s a great time to reflect on your goals & make any adjustments to help you achieve them.

I love that she opens each video with “hello my sweet, sweet friends“.

Book Review: Strong Looks Better Naked

Strong Looks Better Naked
I had to wait a little while for this to become available at the library, but I didn’t mind waiting. I get an email notification when something is ready for me to collect, which is one of the reasons why I love my library.
The book is broken into three parts covering body, mind, and heart.
The body section focuses on exercise & food as they often go hand in hand when it comes to improvement. She talks about how she first started going to the gym & how she came to love it, how to set realistic goals & finding a way to work out that you enjoy, after all not everyone loves the gym.
The mind section concentrates on willpower, getting your head on straight, making the best of everything, friendships & learning to recognize when you need to let something go.
The heart section emphases compassion, thinking before you act & that life is not a competition, the only competition you should have is yourself.
There are tons of photos of Khloe & her family from various times in her life, numerous inspiring quotes (keep a look out on quote Monday), a sample of what she eats in a day, at least 20 recipes that cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and beverages, as well as songs that are in her playlist.
This book was a great little perk up, to remind me to be the best version of myself through exercise, eating nutritious food & spending time with like-minded people.
I don’t think I could say that this book will inspire you to make drastic changes to you life, but it may make you think about a few things that could be improved because small changes really do add up.
I also think this is a great book to read every year or so just to give me that extra nudge with some motivation.
