Brief Sonoma Escape

  • Aug 5th, 2019 at 1:25PM

Last week was in so many ways. It started off with visiting my cousin (Kenzai member) June L, who was housesitting for our friend (Kenzai member) Kit F, who has a lovely rural home in Sonoma County. As I've blogged, things have been stressful at work. Having a beautiful place to escape to was a magical healing balm - thank you Kit! My cousin is the best person I know at helping me see things, cheerleading me, and calling me out on my shit. Having her council was essential.

June is joining Kettle Bell tomorrow, so I brought my bells and did a workout with her in addition to doing Reach.

Here are some vids:

I won't pretend we avoided wine in wine country, but in general we ate clean meats and tons of veggies.

I've been hitting the exercises regularly, but my diet hasn't gone as planned. My resignation went public on Tuesday. Letting people know that I'm looking for a new thing has everyone asking me for drinks! I'm not sure my liver or my waistline can handle the transition.

This upcoming weekend, I'll be going on an annual trip with great friends. This is not a time to try to be restrained. Ugh - I should just plan another inch on the waist come a week from today.

Glad you were able to have the QT up here with June. Sorry it doesn’t have much for environment yet, but hopefully someday! Congrats on the resignation and much love moving forward. ❤️

    Good for you on the resignation. Enjoy the transition time...you'll get rid of the inches when it's the right time, and support of friends and family is everything.

      You are such a beautiful force my love! On so many levels! You inspire in every arena of your life. From parenting to friendship to the workplace to Kenzai. You are an inspiration to the world. Now take the world by the cleones and slay that bitch!

        WOW! Big news, my friend, big news. Drinks are more fun, but many deals have been done over coffees too (:

        BTW, are you tempted to join me in the beta for K Marathon? Starts Aug 19th in time for the Honolulu Marathon December 8th....we have a bed with your name on it if you can make it over!

          Malia - I've been contemplating that. Let me talk to Chris. Nothing like a winter marathon to keep those waist inches away. Bugz - I love you crazy!

            Muy thais or mai tais? With you and June....I figure a bit of both! Week four photo is capturing some incredible progress, Ed! Mastering a forward bend, or really any posture, requires sincerity, humility, and commitment. Plus, when it really evolves with your chest on your legs, June will be able to balance her wine glass on your back!

              @Ward...you are hilarious! You can be part of our tribe any day with that sense of humor! Ed...keep doing those PNF stretches. I think your body will respond magnificently to this form of flexibility training. https://stretchcoach.com/articles/pnf-stretching/
