Buon giorno, cari Amazoni! Good morning, dear Amazons!

As a lot of you know, I travel for work, and I just got to Charleston, SC. I was bombarded with rehearsals from the moment I arrived (I literally went directly from the airport to rehearsal!) and I’m still settling into my, quite lovely, apartment. As I type, I’m enjoying the glories of my in-unit washer and dryer. C’mon New Yorkers! You know what I mean!

With that in mind, I hope you’ll forgive the lack of a post today. If you’ve been having food adventures without me, I’d love it if you’d tell me about them in the comments. What have you discovered about your own tastes and habits? Did you try a new food and really love it? Did you get creative in your own kitchen?

I’ll start. I had sweetbreads (pancreas) that knocked my socks off. I’d had sweetbreads before, but wasn’t impressed. My waiter told me these were life-changing, and I’m way into life-changing. Later he told me all about the 3-day-long process the restaurant uses to prepare these locally sourced num-nums.

They were served with pickled ramps and fava beans. If you’ve never had ramps, they’re a spring crop, much like asparagus. They’re foraged instead of cultivated, and generally found along riverbeds on the east coast. They look something like green onions and have a pungency reminiscent of garlic. If you have a chance to pick them up at your local market, I highly recommend it!

Best wishes and good eating, Amazons!

Just a reminder. . . #clearmindopenheart
When the Universe gives you what you needed, say "Thank You!" . . 2018 was a really challenging year. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. One of the most important things I learned along the way was to stop questioning when I get what I need. Instead I express gratitude! . . Time and again I'd be presented with exactly the growth opportunity or essential thing I NEEDED to survive...and I'd question it! I'd doubt if it was the right choice or if I could pull it off πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ - until it became so obvious that my doubts were foolish. I was right where I needed to be. . . For #transfomationtuesday share in the comments some gratitude for times you were given exactly what you needed! πŸ’“πŸ’“ . . #dropthedoubt #motivation #anothergrowthopportunity #growandchange #gratitude #universalguidance #modernspirituality #thankyou #saythankyou
"Age" has never been my challenge. I don't mind getting older - I don't mind getting wiser, stronger, and more resilient πŸ’ͺπŸ’œ = = My challenges have been negative self talk, the aftermath of bad decisions, and the frustration of not living up to my personal best. Cultivating a growth mindset and working on my relationship with myself has shifted all that. = = We are all a work in progress, and my work is certainly not done. May the next 10 years have the vision and challenges to teach me lessons I can't even imagine right now. = = #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #growthmindset #levelup #curlyhair #selftalk #positivity #positivevibepositivemind #coaching #coachmentality

Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday a truly magical birthday. I'm so fortunate to know I am loved, supported, and truly blessed. . . . 2018 was a huge year of challenges and growth, like nothing I've experienced before. I'm ready for you, 2019. Smarter, faster, and stronger than ever before. Let's see what we can accomplish. . . . #happybirthdaytome #ihaveamazingfriends #thankful
Growth is an essential human need. . . To progress. To change. . . Sometimes we need to look back down the path to see how far we've come. Today the past reached back (via Facebook) to show me how far I've climbed. . . Never doubt that you have the ability to grow. To change. And yes, I believe that people do change! Oftentimes it's so subtle we miss it. . . So far 2018 has held many challenges; the biggest difference from 2008 is now I can see the opportunity wrapped inside them. . . #tbt #progressnotperfection #winning #fitpro #curlyhairdontcare #growthmindset @teameqx #greenwichaveequinox #equinox #itsnotfitnessitslife #committosomething
