Trying my own recipe, sort of

It’s Baking Day 😀 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.

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’s 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…
