Fall & Turning Over A New Leaf

Fall & Turning Over A New Leaf

I love Fall. I think everyone loves Fall, but it’s still worth mentioning 🙂 I saw a post on the Fitnessista’s blog today about turning over a new leaf with the new season, and checking in with the goals you set for yourself earlier in the year, and I loved the idea of doing that… The Frenchman and I are big goal setters and we usually set them for every month, every six months, every year, and 5-and 10-years. So I thought I’d share some here! 1) Move to Europe.  CHECK CHECK CHECK! This has been on our goal list for years and the fact that we made it happen is a huge accomplishment. Now, we’re still trying to get some things established here, but that’s expected to take time 🙂 We’ll be back and forth to the US as well for Bad Yogi business, so don’t worry, American friends! We’ll see you again soon enough! 2) Get Back to the Gym.  I’m signing up for one here next week! With getting everything ready to come to France, I totally slacked on my fitness routine. I kept up with my home yoga practice, but I didn’t make much time for anything else. I always try to find balance, so I’m going to get back on the wagon starting soon. … but let’s remember why I keep getting distracted: THE BEACH! 😉 3) Make Time for Just Fun.  We have a habit of blending work with fun (which I happen to think is awesome), but sometimes it’s good to unplug and totally disconnect. So far we’re doing better with taking...

Wanderlust Day 2: Hippie Weirdness is ALIVE

I woke up bright and early at 6:15am all ready to go, but since I’m a total slow poke in the morning, I didn’t actually leave my hotel at until around 7:30. I got breakfast up the road which was a freaking BOMB latte and an everything bagel. You know what they say: Be the full fat latte in the sea of low-fat soy chai. … or something like that. Anyway, at 10am I went to a lecture from Sarah Copeland which I expected to be incredibly lame (just tellin’ you the truth!) and ended up being really great. I’ll be writing all about the interview I had with her over on Lululemon’s blog later this weekend, but for now I’ll tease you with this: the name of her lecture was based on her new book and called “Have Your Cake and Your Veggies Too. And as you know, any woman who’s a friend of cake is a friend of mine, so needless to say, it was awesome. The rest of my day was spent defacing public property 😉 And then masterfully crafting my disguise as a hippie. Now they’ll never know it was me 😉 I’ve been hennaed: Face-painted: And tatted up with these babies: Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been assimilated. I crashed at the hotel until a farm-to-table dinner which was a culinary experience from the master herself, Sarah Copeland. I tried to be stealthy and not take a million very obvious pictures all night, but here’s a sneak peak: Homemade local charcuterie including pate, dried fruit, various cheeses, and fruit preserves, and pickled veggies. Seriously my...
