Spring is in the air, is it in your step?

Ahhhh…spring is definitely in the air! And the reason I have been m.i.a. the past week is because there is definitely spring in my step. Busy busy here getting our garden underway, collaborating on upcoming health programs, as well as planning a trip to NYC! This post will have a dash of all 3.

1) First off, the household garden. If you remember me mentioning in January, our home has been looking forward to this garden for a while now. Digging & planting are becoming a few of my favorite things! A lot of hard work put in and a lot still to do. Here is the site BEFOREImageImage

First step was to clear out last springs garden. Yes, you read correctly. We skipped out on the summer months for a variety of reasons (time & money the main). Once the area was ready, we looked at the seeds left from the freezer and made a trip to the store to purchase a few new additions. Planted the following: sunflowers, cucumbers, carrots, spinach, lettuce variety, green peppers, pole beans, and perennials that attract butterflies. Oh, and a cantaloupe vine was started indoors and will be transplanted soon!

2) Be on the lookout for upcoming lectures featuring myself and Angela Rauter. Angela is an Acupuncture Physician, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor. Also, she is on faculty at the Sarasota School of massage therapy where she teaches Anatomy and Physiology, Pathology and Shiatsu Bodywork. Angela and I are joining together to create lifestyle plans that will keep clients focused and empowered in all aspects of life. Working with habits, challenges, desires, dreams, and goals while supporting transformation into living one’s optimal ideal. Health coaching AND acupuncture, massage, pilates and yoga…YES PLEASE! For the time being, check out our individual websites for more about us and what we do. A collaborative website is in the works.

3) While putting together a few ideas for our trip to NYC, I came across this New York Wellness Guide- 40 places to Eat, Breathe, Move, Heal and Shop in NYC. http://www.mindbodygreen.com/wellness-guide-nyc-2012-2.html Although nothing beats recommendations from people who live there…definitely worth checking out as it is an easy to follow guide with map and all. This helped narrow down the large list of restaurants we’d like to try to 3.
