Wow this has been a crazy month! I’ve been bogged down with a huge work event that has been dominating my life but now it is finally over (WAHOO!) and I can get back to normal. That being said on top of my day job I also have my health coaching job which has really been doing amazing. I have a few new clients and I have a bunch of workshops going on this summer; the first one is next week! In addition to working one-on-one with clients and doing workshops I am also working on setting up a few podcasts and other healthy living materials. I also am back at IIN doing the immersion program, which so far is wonderful. I know things are sounding crazy already but they get crazier.
I recently was contacted by a friend who writes for Ecorazzi asking if I would be interested in attending and covering Wanderlust Vermont. UMMMMM hello of course I would be! I have actually been talking about Wanderlust to my husband for months now and had been debating going so when I was approached to cover the event I jumped at the opportunity. The Hubz is going to head down to Stratton with me so he can take advantage of the hiking and he will also be attending one day of Wanderlust, my anniversary gift to him. So some of you are probably wondering what the heck is Wanderlust?
Wanderlust is a festival combining the holistic experience of a yoga getaway with the swagger of a rock show.

Among all of this chaos the Hubz and I are still going strong with our running and have some really S.M.A.R.T. goals around what we would like to do and achieve. We are just finishing up C25K and we are going to then work on doing two 30 minute runs and one long run (starting at 2.5m and increasing by .5 until the race) per week until our 5k in July. Following the 5k we are planning a 10k in September and will be using the Hal Higdon training plan; if we like his we will use it to train for our half as well. In other active news the Hubz and I are gearing up to do some backpacking on the Long Trail this summer which should be a lot of fun. We had planned on doing an overnight trip this weekend but we might have to reschedule do to rain. Do you hike? Are you into backpacking?
Lastly lets talk about food. I haven’t been doing much for cooking lately due to the crazy schedule I have had. Most of our food has been pretty boring and basic like greens, beans and grains or salads, however this is all going to change soon! I have plans to start working on another e-book (probably won’t be looking for testers until August) and also working on some really great healthy recipes for the blog.
Well that is what’s going on with me- what is new and good with you?
