…oh hey there!

So…where do I event start? Instead of playing catch up, I’m going to just start with the present. I’m sure everything that’s happened since my last post (cough one year ago cough) will come up anyways!

Here we are, it’s almost the middle of July and here is what is happening for me:

  • I am a CycleStar…yes, I am a STAR! Becoming an indoor cycling instructor has been a dream of mine ever since I fell in love with the workout back in Dallas. Now I am up on the podium and teaching a class full of riders and it is the most amazing feeling! I will be posting about the training experience, etc. very soon! But as for now, I am loving what it is bringing to the table in my life. If you are reading from Aspen, I’d be stoked to see you in my class! (Book online here). I am teaching early mornings which is super fun, but we also have other kickass instructors to check out as well 🙂

  • I am in love! How gooey and gushy that statement was… but it’s true! I have been in a relationship for almost a year now and it has been the most amazing lesson on so many levels. Devan came into my life at the perfect time. I told the universe that I was ready to enter into a real and committed relationship again. What came with it was not flowers and chocolates, though, but so much more that has strengthened who I am and given me such a better sense of reality. Devan challenges me to be my best self, and that makes me set the bar high for myself and what I really want in life.

  • I am still in Aspen.. surprise! I don’t even think that was mentioned in my last post. I think I was still home, playing with the idea of going to Aspen for a winter season, and here I still am! I went into this phase of my life trying my best to just let things happen naturally, and while that still poses a challenge at times, I know I am exactly where I need to be. Right here, right now. Plus- I always wanted to do a winter in aspen, and I did it! And I’m doing it again this year 🙂

So there you have it, just a little glimpse of what’s going on in the present. I intend to spend more time diving into what I’ve learned, and what I continue to learn. I am currently seeing an amazing life coach who also does Reiki healing and I must say it is pretty damn cool! I have been introducing mediation into my life and also started to get back into yoga again. I believe that my verrrry long hiatus from yoga happened for a reason, and now I am ready to re-enter into that realm again. Exciting!

Happy week to all!

working on your soul

I recently watched Cassey Ho’s video on The “Perfect” Body and it was very moving. We are constantly look at ourselves and wish we had at least five different things about our body. We workout excessively, diet, try insane cleanses (that I personally last half a day through) all for what? Because, if I did end up achieving my “dream body”, would I feel that different? Or would I start picking out other imperfections? It’s all just a vicious cycle that we all play into.

I started wondering why we are so focused on our appearance, when it all comes down to who you are on the inside. This may seem obvious, or cliche (I am a fan of the cliches) but seriously! One day I am going to die, and whoever reflects on my life is surely not going to say “she had big arms” or “she had a good tan” (thanks for that one Brynne). I would hope that someone would talk about the person I was any impact I may have had on them.

Why are we obsessing over our bodies and overall appearance when that’s not what’s important in the end? Is that what really defines you? I’m not saying I’m perfectly secure with my image now that I’m posting this, but it is definitely something I am more aware of. I think we should all accept our bodies for what they are, how they were created, and how they will remain without trying to manipulate our diets and exercise. I’m all about a healthy lifestyle, but to restrict myself from good food or a day of vegging out on the couch is a waste of energy.

Embrace yourselves! We have so much more to share with the world, and good energy and a happy soul makes you look a lot better!
