It's chilly in here! :) If this is winter though, kids... I'll take it! A little hot tea and some fuzzy socks is the perfect remedy for grey skies and a little rain.
(Given that I'm still slightly traumatized by Snowmageddon 2010, I could not be more grateful for our new climate...)
Aside from waiting by the phone for the day's picture of a teensy kitten, I have been digging back in to yoga, learning raw foods (new to me and SO. AWESOME.) hanging with friends and building ZenPulse.
1. Yoga: Joined up at Yoga Belly in Mountain View for a trial months and I'm hooked! Heated power yoga taught by warm, welcoming, energetic instructors. SOLD.
2. Raw Foods: Just when I think food couldn't get any more exciting - Lori walks in! Briefly considered kidnapping her and keeping her in my kitchen after she dropped a raw tuna salad recipe on me, used the words "spirulina" and "dulse" in the same sentence and "threw together" a batch of chocolate macaroons following a kettlebell ladder drill with me yesterday.
Also - the Cafe Gratitude desert cookbook is now temporarily in my possession. I either need to make a lot of friends who like cake or start running distance or my jeans are in trouble...
3. Zen Pulse: If you are ever looking for a way to learn internal validation - start your own business. This has been the biggest challenge and biggest blessing I have every tackled!
I'm planning a hike for Thanksgiving Day, training clients and working on starting boot camps in 2011 while I build a decent website from scratch and blog a few times a day!
4. Friends: Happy Birthday, Emily! Had an awesome time eating yummy food, drinking wine and playing board games with new friends on Saturday. Brian and I can't stop talking about what a blessing it is to have met such great people in such a short time.
Sunday was spent working out with Lori, cooking from my new fave cookbook, eating and cracking my head open on the "ceiling" that slants underneath our staircase. I have a giant lump in my noggin and I was actually unable to read properly for about 20 minutes after impact. 1 point stair case.
SO. Hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving week! Things here are nuts - but would expect anything different from me and the B??
