Day 26: Friendly Walk

My friend Jenny and I walked around Washington Park twice (a little over 5 miles) and dished out about our lives.  It was one of those talks where you do not even realize that you are walking or doing anything good for yourself.  Doubly awesome when you consider the benefits:  talking + walking = a healthy soul.  If you have someone in your life that you can talk to for hours, then do it while walking.  Take advantage of the beautiful outdoor days of Fall and get to steppin!

Tonight I am working at lululemon and practicing (youuuuu guessed it!) another hour of yoga.  Two lovely workouts in one day.  I am so grateful to live a life that supports this lifestyle.  So grateful to have turned in my business pants and heels to embrace a life of stretchy pants and head stands.  I am blessed to get to talk about life goals and dreams everyday and share them with the world.  I am so happy that I get to help guide my clients down a path of a more inspired life.

What about you?  What would you change in your life to guide you to more happiness? 

Day 25: Warm Your Soul

Every morning for breakfast I have a green smoothie.  When I start my day off with something really healthy I believe that it sets me up for continued healthful choices the rest of the day.  It’s also the easiest way to get 3-4 servings of my daily intake of fruits and veggies.  Here is my recipe if you are thinking of going green (I promise they are not as scary as they look):

  • 1 small banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen peaches
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • one scoop of soy/whey protein powder

Today was my fourth consecutive day of yoga and my body is really happy with that.  It was also the first time that I noticed my feet were getting closer to laying flat on the ground during down dog (whoo-hoo!)!  I went to a level two class at Core Power Yoga and sweat out every once of water my body could muster.  It’s amazing how good it feels to do that when it is only 32 degrees outside.  Hot yoga should really be called, “Warm Your Soul,” it would attract a lot more people during these chilly months.
