Something New #62 – Praline

A friend recently headed over to Lisbon, Portugal to give a demonstration at a conference; and proceeded to spend the entire trip in his hotel room making code.  These are his choices and I do my best not to judge them… however, he was kind enough to bring back some fine Belgian chocolate to reward me for some copy editing and a few graphics I slapped together.  The center of these confections were a nougaty center that, to my knowledge, I’ve not before sampled.  I’m unsure if it was this particular recipe or a this is true of all praline everywhere, but I don’t really see what the big deal is.  I’m just sayin’…

Something New #63 – Apricots

Another small eatable has recently come into my life by way of the fruit stand on the corner.  I’ve been trying something new (lowercase) with my morning routine; in addition to having given up coffee (gasp!) I am only eating fruit in the morning.  Here’s the deal: I wait until I’m actually hungry before eating then, and only then, I have a piece of fruit.  And then I wait until I’m hungry again, then more fruit.  On and etcetera until it’s morning snack time.  As you can imagine bananas and apples are getting a little old; so me & Mr. Fruit Vendor have had a date every other morning.  Last week I saw those little orange-yellow flesh balls calling my name and though ‘huh.  I’ve only ever had them dried…’.  Well, let me tell you: They’re so much better than dried!  The flavor was more event, the texture was good, and I enjoyed them fully.  In fact, I’ll probably pick some up tomorrow.

Sometimes you just need a change in perspective 🤔 . . . I haven't posted much the last few months as I underwent some huge personal transformations. Some days have been a struggle; other days the progress has been obvious. Through it all my meditation and self care have let me see my own resiliency. They've taught me to look beyond my flitting thoughts to my deeper self and work to my real truths. They've also shown me that much of life is what I do with it and how I interpret what's happening around me. . . . Life also continues to reinforce that a little bit more strength and a lot of humor go a long way. 💪🤪😎 aaaand: First post in the new apartment!! Enjoy that dramatic lighting. . . . #headstand #handstand #meditationmonday #meditate #meditation #progress #progressnotperfection #strong #strongwoman #yoga #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobilityehlersdanlossyndrome #heds #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #alignmentyoga @luna_alignment_yoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #changeyourheartchangeyourmind
How do you use your downtime? A cancelled client gave me the extra time to get organized, to write, and to focus my mind. So often we spend the gift of a little extra time getting sucked into glowing rectangles - wasted time on our phones, TVs, and tablets. . . Can you commit to yourself today to harness your full potential? How are you going to feed your good wolf? . . . #feedthegoodwolf #potential #progressnotperfection #coaching #organization #bujo #selflove #selfcareisselflove #writer #feedyourdreams #starbucks #icedcoffee #morningglow #curlyhair #curlyhairdontcare #bighair #bighairdontcare
Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
