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

This is How We Do It
We* just get up every day and put our shoes on and walk. Whether or not we feel like it. Whether or not we want to. Although most of the time we want too. We plan our meals and our choices. We get the bike out of the shed and ride it. We just do these things. We become one of those people that you see who does those things. We realize that it feels good to move and be mindful of what is going into our bodies.
*The royal "we."
So, today I got up and put my shoes on and walked. Then after breakfast I did a resistance band workout for my arms. Even after just one week of these renewed habits I can see and feel a difference.
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.
