Yoga Against My Will

I’m on a yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico this week. If things are going right, I’m either meditating, bare foot running, or sipping a pina colada right now. I’ll be back in the world of all things digital on June 4. Until then, enjoy this post and take good care of yourself. If someone had told me a year ago that now I’d be looking forward to a week on the beach with a bunch of yoga... read more

Gone To Mexico

I still find myself quite surprised to be typing these words, but here goes: Dave and I are off to a yoga retreat. We’re going to the Maya Tulum Resort in Mexico with a crew from YogaYoga. My plan is to completely disconnect from the internet, so no blog, no email, no Twitter, no Facebook… just sun, sand, surf, Satnam, books, running, meditation, CrossFit workouts, and romance with my handsome... read more

Let Paleo Picnic Season Begin

Memorial Day is the official beginning of the American summer picnic and potluck season. Are you ready, paleo people?! Here’s a list of the recipes from my archives that I believe you can take to a picnic or a potluck without tipping anyone off that they’re eating “paleo” or “healthy” or “clean.” They will just nosh and celebrate – and so can you, knowing... read more

Walking Your Path

Our kundalini instructor Robin gave us a prompt for a visualization in class last week, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot ever since. She had us close our eyes and visualize a path. There were no specifics other than that at first: just visualize a path. I immediately thought of the hiking trail in Tennessee Valley, in Marin County, California. This is what the trail looks like as you start your... read more

Thai Cooking Class: A Story In Photos

Rants & Raves – 05/18/12

Oh, the webbernet! It gets me all riled up with dire news and mainstream idiocy, then blammo! it hits me with something so awesome, it must be shared. Dear friends, welcome to this week’s collection of Rants & Raves. Rants Last week, I only had two small rants to share. This week?

Summer Training Plan (+ Strength Friday – 05/18/12)

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon. I need a revamp. I’ve been consistently throwing around the heavy barbells twice a week since January, and I love what it’s doing for my confidence and my frame. True,... read more
