Since I have basically not been around any weekend for the past 2 months it’s time to play catch up. I have Health Coaching work, Immersion, house cleaning, reading and a number of other things to do this weekend on top of the fact we (for some crazy reason) planned two concert outings for this weekend. So I’m taking the weekend off from blogging. I’ll be back Monday with a Weekend Wrap Up Post.
While I am gone Catch Up On my latest Posts:
Back on my 25th birthday I made a list of 25 things for my 25th year. Now there is only one month left to accomplish these goals and I still have a lot to do. I also noticed that I was pretty ambitious last year in setting goals to travel the world; this won’t happen again for next years 26 in 26.

After we packed up camp this morning Neil and I made our way up to Stratton for Wanderlust , unfortunately the rain from camping last night decided it wanted a second round and we ended up with a very wet day. This meant wet yoga classes for me and no hiking for Neil, oh well!
I took two classes today the first with Kia Miller and the second with Desiree Rumbaugh. The first classes was a Kundalini yoga class, the first I had ever taken. I really enjoyed it but boy was it tough at times! The second class I took was an Anusara workshop to help knees, hips and legs. This was a very interactive class and I loved it! I learned some great tips to help me get into postures better and how to relieve any pain in my lower body. Tomorrow I have an neck and shoulders worksop- getting the whole body done!
In addition to yoga classes Neil and I had food from the Krishna Cafe that was delicious, however no photo because I was starving!
I am at the opening ceremony now and then going to bed- I have an early class in the a.m.
Thursday night I had a crazy afternoon between a conference call, running, gardening and packing for our backpacking trip. So I decided to keep dinner quick and easy. I made veggie skewers with mini peppers, sweet onion and mushrooms; just toss with salt, pepper and olive oil and roast at 375F for 20-25 minutes. To go with the veggies I made a black bean and corn salad with mustard greens from my balcony garden.
Black Bean-Corn-Mustard Green Salad
- 1T olive oil
- 5 spring garlic, minced
- 1/2 red onion, minced
- 1 serrano chili, minced
- 1-12oz bag of frozen sweet corn
- 1-15oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 bunch of mustard greens, shredded
- salt and pepper
In a large skillet heat the oil over medium-high heat; toss in the garlic, red onion and chili and cook for 3-4 minutes. Toss in the corn and saute until lightly browned about 5-8 minutes. Stir in the black beans and mustard greens and cook until mustard greens are wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
