Dinner is a @nomnompaleo recipe, but I changed the core. Instead of pork and pineapple, it's beef and mandarin oranges 🍖🍊 Cooked it up in the #instantpot while the Khal whipped up some #whiterice 😍 Served with a little sour cream and half an ugly #avocado (the newest addition to the imperfect produce section at the grocery store 🥑)
Today is the fourth anniversary of The Incident at work that started me off on this whole health and fitness journey. (You can read about it on my blog at the link in my bio if you don't know what I'm talking about.) There have been a lot of ups and downs in life that have come since. I've lost a lot (family, friends... weight, fear) and I've gained a lot (strength, confidence, better friends... but also some of that weight back 😬). So, given the occasion, today seemed like the best day to respawn.
I started the morning with a protein smoothie, then hit open gym to do day one of #BasicBarbell by @stupideasypaleo and refuelled with a big bowl of spicy #karaageramen before getting all the ingredients I need to do my meal prep in the Instant Pot.
I'm ready for some new beginnings.
Most of the answers we seek are already within. We just need to quiet the mind and listen.
Today's last quarter reading confirmed a whole lot of what I already know, through a lot of suits and court cards. Two queens, a page, and every suit save swords.

Got so swamped, there was no time for class at yoga or the gym. But #nevermissamonday , so I hit the mat at home to build some heat with a few #vinyasa flows inspired by @mynameisjessamyn's book #everybodyyoga , and then a few yin poses to maintain that #mobility (my only strength), while I multi-tasked by meditating on the sketches I've been doing for a design project I'm working on this week 🤔💭🎨 #yoga#homepractice#yogaeverydamnday
"Can you take off your shirt and pose like you're the guy on the garbage can? I want to take a picture." My forever #mcm is the kind of guy who just shrugs and replies, "Yes, dear." #mancrushmonday#mce#mancrusheveryday
I'm one of those people that doesn't really like my birthday. It's not even about getting older, it's a weird millieu about not liking too much attention or asking for things. But @brandon.tamane started a tradition of taking me for my favorite food, #chickenandwaffles , every year and I'll admit I wake up excited to put them in my face 😅🍗🥞
Tonight is the #SapMoon , the first #fullmoon of spring, and a #bluemoon . It's a powerful time of transformation and I had a beautiful time holding sacred space with my spiritual sisters (and one brother!) and letting go of the things that no longer serve us at @the_rock_store tonight 🌕🙏
