Good living and country air, back to basics

Last week we moved. From central Houston, we packed up everything to temporarily move outside the city on two and half acres and in to a farm house and barn vs a garage. I think every box was triple the weight of my kettlebells!

I work from home, or wherever the internet is available. Short story is we will be back in Houston in about a year as we plan on building a small home there. But this was a great chance to rent a friends farmhouse and simplify life in the meantime. I am loving it! Our workout is outside under the gajillion stars we can see here in the country. The hot summer temperatures of Texas are mitigated by a nice flowing breeze at night. There is something really settling about having coffee on a front porch looking out at old tin barns, focusing on client work during the day, and eating right and working out at night. Wash, rinse, repeat. Note: my partner is also a Kenzai alumni and is in the Sculpt Beta after recently doing a reboot.

If there was ever a chance to reset, this is it. Even though we live in a sea of packing boxes at the moment, we are doing our best to include body and diet from the beginning. The kettlebell as a historical and simple tool for working the body just seems to fit into this simpler life.

Best of luck balancing the 'bells with the move. Not easy, Jonit! We'll be rooting you on though.

    Sounds fabulous, nothing like working out in the open fresh air! Love the idea of a 'simpler life' I am constantly clearing out to get rid of all the clutter that seems to accumulate - makes you feel so much better!!

    Enjoy the program and your new home!

      Nice to meet you Jonti. I love that your reset includes living healthy. It's always a great foundation. I am super jealous of your setting. It's been a while since I've been to Texas but from what I remember.... the stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas.

          Man, you are living it up Jonti! I think lugging all those boxes around is totally worth the pay off. Now you have me day-dreaming away of my own farmstead, super cool! (that said, I think you will like some of the daily lessons coming down the road!)

          Also, props on the photo. You mean business! :)

              That sounds like a spectacular vista you have. Love to see a photo! There is nothing quite like doing a workout outside in the vastness of nature. Good for the body and mind!
