Trying my own recipe, sort of

It’s Baking Day ūüėÄ We had some bananas sitting around for too long, so I decided it was due time to edit an old recipe of mine. About a year ago, I made a crumble top banana bread. I decided to remake it using the same recipe, but swapping in some vegan items. It tastes…

That Dam(n) Run

Happy Friday loves, It’s been a month since my run, and I just realized I never talked about how it went! Last year I barely finished, walked frustrated across the finish line. This year, I beat my time by ten minutes! And I was able to kick it across the finish line. You can check…

5 things I learned in 5 days of writing

Happy Wednesday loves, Five things to mark five weeks in the series! What series should I do next? I’m thinking a food series, it’s been a little bit since I’ve cooked. And the holidays would make a perfect time to test out some recipes! 1.¬†Prioritizing things is important For this challenge I didn’t prioritize writing….

6 Things I learned in 3 Days of Twice Daily Meditation

Happy Wednesday Loves, Another week of learning? Sounds good to me. But let’s change it up. This week, I’ll elaborate a little bit more on what I learned. What do you think? How are you enjoying this series? 1. Mindfulness does not happen immediately It’s so difficult to think mindfully. Simply a few days of…

24 Things I Learned in 24 Hours Without Technology

Hello dears, It‚Äôs week three of the series! How are you liking it so far?? Before I get into what I learned, let me talk about what I did. I challenged myself to a full 24 hours (9am Saturday – 9am Sunday) technology free, anything shorter seemed too easy and honestly 24 hours wasn’t terribly hard. The technology…

30 Things I Learned in 30 Days of Social Media Posting

Hi friends, It’s week two of my # I learned in # days series, and this week I am talking about what I learned over my month of daily posting for the Yoga Girl challenge. This is a little different than last week, even though it’s based around the same time. Last week I talked…

35 Things I learned in 35 Consecutive Days of Yoga

Hi there, Before I get into those 35 things, let me give you some background. I did this as a participant of a 30 day challenge, that then turned into two challenges and extended my original 30 days to 35 days. The first challenge was a social media challenge started by Yoga Girl (Rachel Brathen),…

30. 108 Sun Salutations. dogs. and yoga in the park. 

Today is the last day. It’s day 30 of #yogagirlchallenge. But it’s not the end of #yogaeverydamnday for me. Thank you again, @yoga_girl for inspiring this and giving me inspiration to finally dive into my practice. Today I did maybe ten of the 108, but I was there the whole time. I brought my mom…

29. Ashtanga. morning practice. and my last class of the first 30 days. 

Tomorrow I’ll be finishing up this #yogagirlchallenge celebrating #yogainthepark downtown. So today I took Ashtanga. It’s easily my favorite practice. It’s challenging and it’s consistent and it’s just so many beautiful things to me. This morning was great, I feel so strong today. I love this.  The past couple days I’ve started my day with…

28. balance. getting shit done. and resetting. 

Good lord, I’ve waited all day for this Vanilla Almond juice from @pressedjuicery. I decided to do a juice cleanse for the day because I just have not been able to reset my nutrition. Taking a day to cut pretty much everything is sometimes what I need. I’ve noticed I’m consuming waaaayyy too much sugar,…

27. effort. chance. and timing. 

It’s weird to realize I’ll put more effort into getting a preying mantis from the front of my house to my herbs in the back than I will to eating or studying or generally anything else. But what’s the chance of coming home to a mantis right in front of where I park? That being…

26. me. sleep. and snuggles. 

Today my intention was to ensure my practice was for me. And about me. Because yoga cannot be well practiced if it’s for anyone else. Or if I’m concerned about what anyone else is doing or thinking.  And wouldn’t you know it, I was able to listen to my body so much better. I was…
