HI there- how was your weekend? I have been going, going going, for about two months now and a break is finally on the horizon! I’m already thinking about the holiday weekend! My past week has been a whirlwind. But- this week will be promising with and O’s game, time with friends, yoga teaching and taking, and a few days off! Woohoo!
I’ve been sipping some juice again.
The one on the left is kale, cucumber, apple, and carrot. Pretty tasty. On the right- courtesy of Trader Joe’s. Love that place.
I’ve haven’t been juicing a ton because in all honesty- it’s a mess and pain to clean the juicer. But I am hoping to get some fresh greens this week and make more. When my work schedule is crazy I tend to ride the caffeine train hard and I have been steadily slowing that down. Homemade iced half caf with coconut milk is currently my best friend. So good.
I’ve also been getting my sweat on.
I wanted to take more gym pics- but I also didn’t want to be one of those people. Lol.
I spent my weekend with my 500 hour ytt’s at Charm City Yoga and as always- it was a great time. I am teaching in as well as participating in the training and I absolutely love every single person in the group.
And even though I am one of the teachers; it is really helping me figure out what my crutches are as a teacher and what I do as a human being when something is uncomfortable in life (don’t worry this will be another future post!)
This is my dad’s brother and I. I’ve showed pics of us before and we totally look alike. Same nose. Same mouth. Lol. My aunt and uncle live in Indianapolis so we don’t seen them often and unfortunately my aunt is dealing with my stressful health issues so it was really fun seeing them.
We laugh, eat food, talk about anything and everything. But I will note that we had horrendous service at Middleton Tavern. I will spare the details, but let’s just say we (the family) might be putting a posting on yelp.
Regardless- wonderful times as always and I miss them already!!! I definitely am feeling like there is not enough time to spend being with all the people I love.
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life had to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all out glory and imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better worlds rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~John Lennon
What are you plans for the week? Here are some tips: drink more water and add some lemon or lime, go to bed early, leave your cell phone in the car when having dinner with a friend, do some yoga on your own at home, put cucumbers on your eyes and lay down with your legs up the wall, call your parents, eat kale, smile, be in the moment, listen.
