May Update

You may recall that for the month of May I am intent on the NEW… experiences, food, workouts.  It seems I am craving change.  Perhaps it is just because it is Spring.  Or more likely, it is because I was so serious about my strength workouts for the past several months and I got bored with them.  Whatever it is, I have enjoyed this past week of non-routine immensely.

Thanks to a 10 Day Spring Detox I did recently with holistic health coach, Amber Williford, I am no longer stuck eating eggs for breakfast, and have been loving some fruit, assorted nut milks, and seeds, mixed with different protein powders. Not pretty but delicious and filling.

Mixed berries, coconut milk and vanilla protein powder – power in a bowl!

And there has been no routine to my fitness. I wake up each morning and decide on a workout according to how I feel.  One morning I did a hard and sweaty kettlebell workout followed by some pushups, and the next morning, my legs were a  bit  quite stiff so I did a soothing, stretchy yoga session.  Today I am about to head out for a run.  So, each morning I do some kind of workout and then each afternoon I have been going for a 5 or 6 mile walk. It has been a great way to keep active and enjoy the lovely weather we are having right now. 

Yesterday I put my camera in my pocket before I headed out so will share just a couple of the pics I snapped.  The flowering trees and shrubs are so beautiful here right now…

  5. Your neck of the woods is amazingly beautiful right now! We're still in the 50's if we're lucky and spring blossoms seem late. A blast of heat is in the forecast for today so we'll see.
