I’ve left you all hanging for the past week because my best friends from home were all here in Santa Barbara and we’ve been having the time of our lives.
Diet was of no consideration, and even my day shake stopped making appearances after the first few days, replaced appropriately by beer, wine tastings, and the occasional shot of jalepeno-infused tequila. Pure gluttony and fast food binges took place of protein shakes and vegetables.
Perhaps the healthier substitutions were in the variety of fun physical activities that took place of my usually highly regimented work-out routines. In place of my regular running and gym and Yoga schedule I walked, hiked, swam, danced, played volleyball, paddle ball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, basketball, and even taught my first casual Yoga circle!
Luckily, Needless to say, we had the time of our lives. My heart and head are in a better place than ever, and strangely enough, I actually lost another inch on my waist. It will take me a few days to get back into my healthy routine, but it was well worth the divergence. In conclusion, I recommend always breaking your healthy restrictive habits to fully partake in the greatest week of your life the best people you’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.
