Whatever comes to mind

I have a lot of little updates for you.

Jerry and Stacey
Jerry and Stacey at Yoga Reaches Out Albany

The first Yoga Reaches Out Albany event back in November was monumental. Baron Baptiste led us through a practice then I circulated the vendors and picked up some goodies. I can’t even remember everything that was there, but I do remember having some Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, a bottle of Boost Clarity Juice (Incredible!), and Siena College had a stand with some sandwiches. I ran into my friend and DDP Yoga compatriot, Stacey, as well as many of the friends I’ve been connecting with in the local yoga community. It was a lot of fun, and the community came together to raise money for some great charities.

Emma is still cute as hell.

I’ve been hitting the Orangetheory Fitness workouts 4 times a week on top of my yoga training. In the last few months, I let my meals get a little out of control, and I put on some weight, some good, some not so good. Since the day after Christmas, I started a new meal plan modeled around DDP Yoga Phase 2, and I’ve already been noticing big changes in 3 weeks. I’m down 10 pounds, and, from my frequent progress photos, I notice a slight difference in size and flexibility. A big part of this plan is eliminating gluten and cow dairy. I’m not at the point where I’m treating it as a phobia, and I don’t think I’ll ever get there. It’s a different way of eating and cooking for me, so with that comes some new challenges. I’m always up for a good challenge.

Penelope is still attentive as hell. And cute.

Connected with the putting on weight thing, I finally did stop in to the Sonic near my house. Too many times. All I really care for there is the peanut butter Oreo shake, which is amazing. What’s not amazing is how they stick to you. Whatever, the ship is back on course.

I participated as a judge in a chili cook off at work, so now I have that on my resume.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is pretty great. I was playing online a lot before the holidays. I gotta pick it back up again.

This one is exciting!!!
