6 ways to keep rocking your resolutions

chicago health & wellness guide 2014!

Three weeks in, 2014 is shaping up to be your best year yet. Keep riding that wave of kickass momentum with fresh ways to feel fit.

Hire a Kitchen Coach
Designer-turned-green gal Jessica Murnane of One Part Plant offers two six-week options: a master plan of individual consultations, shopping trips, weekly check-ins, videos, and more ($1,275); and a similar but less involved mini plan ($350). You can also sign up for single classes ($35 each) with health expert Amanda Skrip, whose detox series at the North Halsted Whole Foods includes tasty recipes and tips for plant-based, gluten/dairy/refined sugar/soy-free foods.

Juice Up
Go green — without giving up solid foods — by supplementing with Harvest Juicery concoctions. We’ve been fans of the line from the start, but now that its founders are opening a West Loop storefront, we foresee an addiction developing. Beyond the bottled blends, try one of three seasonal juices on tap or a smoothie made with almond or hemp-seed milk plus fresh fruit.

Sweat It Out
Make a break for the newly opened Nike Training Club pop-up studio on Michigan Avenue (check Facebook for upcoming class info). Another option: the free Nike app, which includes four-week training programs full of customizable content.

Find Peace of Mind
Saren Stiegel wants you to get your glow on. The lawyer-turned-life coach’s first breakthrough session is free. Then she and her team help you, among other things, feel awesome about your career, make better decisions, serve the world, and live a life for yourself instead of others.

Save Face
Don’t let the name scare you: The new Silkpeel Pore Clarifying Handpiece at Leah Chavie Skincare bills itself as a milder version of microdermabrasion. A handy wand flushes out blocked pores and infuses them with salicylic acid. Plus, the whole thing takes 30 minutes or less, so you can fit it in during a lunch break.

Hello, gorgeous.
