Let the BEET control you

I am now officially in yoga teacher training (WOO!). I am in class 4 days a week which means I am running around town like a crazy lady. I could not be happier to be this nutty women. This is one step closer to taking back my happiness and I am super jazzed about my choice.

OMwork! Anatomy!

I must say though that as I begin my journey into yoga school I am trying to be incredibly mindful of the little things that make my day better. The sun has been out during my drive to work this week. This is small but wonderful.

A consequence of my super busy schedule is I am eating all of my meals on the go. I prepped for this shift in schedule by purchasing a ton of yogurt and fruits this past weekend. Also, I have been in the mood for clean delicious salads. I have been jones-ing for beets.
