Pre-pave- Day 5

My #1 desire for today:

There are 8 people in IntenSati class tonight and it is totally inspired and wonderful. I ride home in a joyful state and spend some time with my hubby before bed. I get to sleep by 10:30 and feel awesome about the day I've had.


3 people came to class and it was inspiring and wonderful. The numbers are coming, I promise. I am getting so good at teaching this class now that I am doing it 3x week, and I feel great about that on my ride home. Matt is in bed (rough day giving blood, they hit a tendon OUCH!) I am joining him now and it is only 10pm. What an awesome day!
*side note: I loved breakfast at Kelley's and dancing with Sid and Sophia, it made my day. And my sis is just tremendous, nothing else to say there.

Pre-pave- Day 4

My #1 desire:

(Sarah at Lululemon Athletica scheduled an IntenSati class for their one year anniversary. Yesterday I got an e-mail saying they were getting a DJ and wanted to make use of him by doing a DJ yoga class instead. I want to teach this class more than anything so I sent her an e-mail saying I thought it would be great to do IntenSati with a DJ. My #1 desire for today is based off of this )

I come home to find an e-mail from Sarah telling me she totally wants to stick with the IntenSati class. YEAH!!!! AND MY MICROPHONE FOR THE CLASS COMES IN THE MAIL TOO! It works beautifully and I again thrill myself with the thought of teaching this amazing class to 60 people!


I did get an e-mail from Sarah. Not what I had pre-paved though. They are locked in on that yoga class for the party. It is not my first thought but still works out because she is super excited about scheduling another time in October for IntenSati. We will pack that class instead! And, alas, my mic didn't come in the mail today but definitely tomorrow!

Pre-pave- Day 3

My #1 desire for the day:

I have a busy day today with many appts. but I am able to carve out beautiful little pockets of time to myself to read, do my manifesting homework, and get to a yoga class. In the busyness I still find time sit down and enjoy all my meals without rushing or doing double duty. I love being able to have time to myself in the midst of this organized chaos.


I was busy today. I didn't get a chance to make yoga class or read though I had two beautiful meals that I enjoyed without doing other busy work. I definitely found more time to myself than I typically would have if I hadn't pre-paved the thought for the day. Looking forward to a beautiful tomorrow!

Pre-pave-Day 2

This is my #1 desire for the day!

Today I live in gratitude. Everything I see reminds me of God's beauty and everything I hear connects me to a spirit of love and peace.


Really how can you NOT live in gratitude on such a beautiful day? The sun was shining and I couldn't stop smiling. Today I was indeed so grateful to be living this life, right now!

The new "30"- Day 1

Well my sis Carrie requested a "good" one and I am offering it up (though it isn't knitting) and it isn't one that I have posted either. But I am inspired and when one is inspired you mustn't question it.

I have had the pure pleasure of joining a manifesting group. And I have had the double pleasure of being paired up with Jamie. Let me tell you, she is fantastic. Our first assignment was to do a daily pre-pave and send it to each other. Then we send a recap and based off the day do a rewrite of our day. I am expanding it to include all of you. Let me first give you the cliff notes on what a pre-pave is...every morning I write out what I believe my best day would look like. This is really it in a nutshell. It is an intentional thought that is put down in words and then set in motion by the desire to see its fruition, followed by the faith that is achievable.

Jamie is getting a full on detailed pre-pave but for the sake of your busy lives I am going to post only my #1 daily desire. I will also recap it so you can celebrate with me when it becomes manifest.

This actually means that my next 30 day experiment is a two-part er. I will be posting every day. So I will actually be counteracting my 3 months of invisibility by 30 days of blogging.

I think this is very good, I hope you approve Carrie!

Also lets not mention the part about how I said I was going to do 30 days of meditation and then you didn't hear from me for 3 months. I was at an ashram (if ashram can be riding your bike and enjoying the sun)!

I am going to show you what a full pre-pave looks like so that you can take it on if you so desire, this was the one I sent Jamie today, including the recap ( in bold), and rewrite (paragraph following)....

I wake up refreshed and excited for my day off. Yes

Saturday's are my favorite day since I have it all to myself to do exactly what I want to do. I spend a bit of time with my honey and then I head off to do a little sparring. I have a great sparring session. My timing is on, I have plenty of energy, my kicks come up easily and I pretty much kick every one's ass. After sparring I feel light and free. Yes

I pop over to the farmer's market to pick up some fresh produce for Sarah's dinner. On the way to the market I suddenly get inspired and know exactly what I am going to make for her family. I pick up my produce and head home to grab Matt and we go to Bess's cafe for breakfast. We take a leisurely breakfast, chat and enjoy our food. After breakfast we go over to Morgan's to meet the little kitties she is giving away. They are adorable!
Yes though it didn't quite go in that order. After sparring I came and got Matt, then we went to breakfast, saw the cutest kitties ever and we shopped together (better than my recap anyway since Matt was with me). Also, we went to Trader Joes instead of farmer's market. It was getting later in the afternoon so we went close by instead. It was good, but farmers market is my favorite because you get to buy local and see the farmers that produced your yummies. Next week I will make it there. I did get inspired though, here's the menu:
Fresh herb salad (I used my own garden goodies for this one) with goat cheese, heirloom cherries, and balsamic vinaigrette
Gnocchi Ala Romano with portabella, chives, and sun-dried tomatoes
crusty bread with fresh garlic-thyme butter
Jamie's scrumptious "cheese cake"

Matt and I head home and since he finished the bathroom this morning we get to hang on the couch and watch a movie, I read a bit, then we go into the bedroom, have amazing sex and fall asleep.
No movie, no reading, it was too late in the day but we napped alright, right up until I had to get started on dinner. So no amazing sex either, YET. I am typing this as Matt is watching the Iowa game (he loves the Hawkeyes) and if they win, I'll get it tonight for sure!

My stylist/friend comes over to color my hair. We hang and chat, and I work on dinner for Sarah. Matt and I go over to drop off dinner for Sarah and Cathy and meet their brand new daughter Ziaya, who is beautiful! We stay for a bit but then come home to have our own dinner and spend the evening together.
Stacey had to cancel, she got crazy today, we rescheded for Friday. Matt cleaned the house (this is why I LOVE my husband) and we went over to Sarah and Cathy's and held their beautiful daughter for a bit before heading home. Our own dinner was the Gnocchi as well and it was delish. Not as excited about the part where Matt wanted to eat it in front of the Iowa game but I acquiesced. Luckily he is only into college football, and then only Hawkeyes football. This takes up about 6 hours a season for him since they aren't always televised. I am grateful he is not a fanatic and in front of the TV watching it all the time so it was easy enough to have dinner on the couch tonight. Plus it gave me this nice time to read your juicy e-mails and respond!

I finish reading '
The Power of Awareness' before bed and feel excited about all of the fresh stuff the book has brought out. I love re-reading books and this one is so Phenomenal. I am excited. And I read a few more chapts. today but I am not quite done yet.

I LOVE, LOVE my day off. It was perfect!
I DO, I DO and YES it was!


I love having days to myself and everything was beautiful today. I got time with my wonderful husband. I enjoyed going down to the gym to spar, and their new location (first time I was there) is WAY closer to my house which is great. One of my favorite things to do is express my love through creating wholesome, fresh, tasty food and I got to do that for my gorgeous friend and her partner Cathy. I was blessed to meet their daughter Ziaya (the name means LIGHT) and relish in new life, unmarred, and open to infinite possibilities. The day is made up of details and in this case the details were lovely and I am thrilled to be living this life right now, the life I had today. If today was my last I would say, "I am ready" I got to do what I enjoyed and got to be with the person I most enjoy and I got to live in the I AM. Who could ask for more really? And even though I know I could (ask for more) I don't want to because for today, I am fulfilled and happy.

It's been more than a minute, so give me a minute

OK! I admit it, I am deliriously in love with summer and officially, today, it is over. Never mind that we are having a beautiful September. Summer is over. And so I feel it is time to bring my suntanned, flip flopped, tootsies indoors and spend some time on the computer. But WHOA! while I have been dreamily adoring the bright and light days (It's already so dark) my friends and family have been blogging away. And so I must catch up with all of you and read your beautiful prose and watch your adorable videos. Really? My sis-in-law completed a blog makeover unbeknownst to me and I don't want to miss any of it! Even my absently blogging sis, Kelley has put in some good hours and offered up videos and I have nothing. No experiments, no check ins, unless we wish to say I underwent an experiment of no-blogging for 30 days in which case I went above and beyond and was extremely successful. But that is not what really happened, instead I was riding my bike, yelling at people in bootcamp, and overhauling my garden. It was much fun, but enough is enough (really enough isn't enough but I ran out of light in my days!)

So give me a minute, I want to catch up and I will be back with a new 30 day endeavor and I promise it will be good, fresh, and something I have never attempted before!

LOVE to know that while I was enjoying my summer, all of my favorite bloggers were loving theirs as well. Too bad I didn't have the foresight to at least keep you posted on the good times, I love reading about yours!
