If I act like a good girl and honor my commitments to myself, then September should be a busy month for me. That’s because it is National Yoga Month, National Sewing Month, and Monday starts the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine’s (PCRM) 21-Day Vegan Challenge.
Now, ideally, I would like to commit to practicing yoga and sewing everyday, but as I’m notoriously lazy, I doubt that will happen but I will do my best. The one thing I can commit to doing is reading more about the subjects. You know I’m always down to read a good book. So here are my choices to commemorate this busy month:
NATIONAL YOGA MONTH
The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga In America
by Stefanie Syman
NATIONAL SEWING MONTH
Solutions to Every Problem You’ll Ever Face, Answers to Every Question You’ll Ever Ask
by Barbara Weiland Talbert
I have a lot of books on sewing in my library, but I rarely sit down and read them cover to cover. I just reference them when I have a question. This little book is just full of tips and tricks and I will go through every page.
Because New York Fashion Week is also this month, I will be reading this:
Nina Garcia’s Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion
21-DAY VEGAN CHALLENGE
This is the one thing that I will definitely be doing everyday. I get recipes from all over the place but will use a couple of books and cookbooks as well.
