A thirty-something's journey on and off the yoga mat (and up and down the trails).

One Foot In Front of the Other
This is how I will get where I want to be. It would have been easy to say "oh, I burned all the calories I need to for the week on Sunday so I can cut back on my exercise," but that wouldn't have propelled me any further down this path. So, yesterday morning I did some gentle hatha yoga (then lay in bed and watched movies in the afternoon because my knees and feet were killing me so I just envisioned all my cells repairing and restoring themselves) then this morning I got up and back into my routine of a morning walk with the dog.
I was very glad to find that my cells had indeed restored themselves and I am not achy at all any more.
Breakfast: eggs on toast.
Lunch: carrots, ham & cheese on an english muffin with avocado.
Dinner: ? Fajitas maybe? Lentil something or other?
This blog is about my journey on the yoga mat and off. Some days I lawyer, some days I hike, some days I swim, some days I bike. Most days I do yoga and cook.
Why beets and butter and mountaintops? Well, I love beets. Not the greens, just the beets. And I love butter. It is necessary for a happy life. And getting back up to the tops of mountains is one of my goals. It could have been called "Coffee, Wine and 100 miles on my bike" or "Brown Rice, Dad's Homemade Ice Cream, and a 3 mile swim" but it isn't.
