I wake up feeling awful. I ate badly yesterday. It’s just ’cause my period is coming I tell myself. I’m not angry at myself for the burger and the ice cream and the absolutely delicious almond croissant. I just don’t like how my body is feeling. And I promise to do better today.
I have made a similar promise for 2017.
The New Year is a time for resolutions. Taking stock of where you are and where you want to be. Holding yourself accountable.
In 2017, I want to be healthier. More grateful and less ready to be critical – being critical is something I’ve done a lot of in the last months. I hope to be more mindful. Exercise more often. I want to set some big goals and stick to them.
I know, I know, these are similar resolutions I make at the start of every year. But, for 2017, I’ve found a tool to help me do it.
Rachael Finch is a health coach, television host, model and mother. She’s released a book titled Happy, Healthy, Strong that’ll be my – and might be yours, also – go-to book for 2017. It’s a multi-tasker book, filled with wholefood recipes, ideas for motivation, affirmations, advice for work-life balance and wellness principles.

Before you roll your eyes, or disregard this as another book by another beautiful celebrity - because she is beautiful - talking about living a wholesome life, there are a few things you should know about Happy, Healthy, Strong.
The book starts with Rachael ordering a cappuccino. No soy or almond milk, no strange 'gut-friendly additives' and no fear of caffeine. Just a regular cappuccino with the chocolate powder on top. (See? I told you it was different.)
