Drew Barrymore is looking to the year ahead 

She continued: "And it doesn't matter what my number is. I wanted to start to show my beginning of the week, to show myself what I was capable of, if I had a week to actually practice that term 'self care' and I think it's a load, because most of the time, we don't actually have time to do it!

"Well, I actually have the time right now! So I am interested in #whataweekcando. Now I know once I go back to kids work life balance, I will most likely not be able to live this healthy. But, it's great to go hard this week on seeing what I can scrape off myself.
