Inhale the Future

It was well worth it to take the month of March off from goals.  My plate was full and my brain needed a bit of a break.  But now…I am looking ahead and excited to work towards improving my physical and emotional self!


April Goals

Begin tri training (including swimming)

Play tennis

Cook healthy and delicious meals

Spring Clean

Create powerful and fun kids yoga classes



What are your April goals?


The only way I can describe this past weekend is NON-STOP!

Saturday morning was the first day of spring yoga. I had 3 classes back to back.  It was so much fun to be back doing yoga with the kids!  We had some past participants and a few new kids.  Overall, it is an extraordinary group, which makes my job easy and exciting.


After yoga, I grabbed the BOY and I lunch at Jimmy John’s and had about 40 minutes to eat and change before going to the gym for a 3 hour self defense for runners seminar.  I run, mostly by myself, so I thought it would be important to have a few techniques up my sleeve.   I did learn some efficient ways to defend myself, but I also learned that I need to practice these skills.  When the seminar ended, I raced out the door to go home for a shower.  The BOY and I had #datenight plans with one of my friends and her husband.  The 4 of us downed some fantastic sushi and had a wonderful evening of laughter and catching up.


We had one more stop after dinner to swing by and wish Happy Birthday to the BOY’s sisters boyfriend before coming home and playing Mario Brothers on the Wii.  The BOY was hungry (I have no idea how after all that sushi) and ordered pizza, which Cooper stalked like a pro.  Who doesn’t love that Papa John’s garlic butter sauce?  It reminds me of college!


Sunday morning I slept in and started the day with a long cuddle with an adorable kitty.  After that, it was off to brunch in the city, then downtown to check out bridesmaid dresses at BHLDN, and then post shopping tea with my mom, SIL, and a friend followed by a quick stop at Whole Foods on the way home.  This morning, I met my trainer for a serious training session and then some friends for lunch and shopping.  I picked up the CUTEST leggings at Lulu (on sale, of course)!  After shopping, I stopped by the BRAND NEW Trader Joe’s in town.  I am so excited to finally have one!


Since I didn’t end up making everything as planned last week, I moved a few recipes to this week, including the Baked Teriyaki Chicken from The Recipe Critic.


Served with roasted veggies.


And followed by a new Whole Foods chocolate find.


Like I said…it’s been non stop!

But all good things and I know that more good things lie ahead!  Did I mention we get to register this month?!

Hooray…it’s spring!

  1. Is that the TJ at Woodfield? I was wondering if it was open. I love the fact that there’s a Whole Foods right there too. It will definitely be worth going up there.
    The self defense is a good idea and very timely due to the runner who was attacked in Busse Woods this weekend. She used pepper spray ( you might want to pack some).
