Who do you surround yourself with?

You are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with.

Who would that be?

Do they feed your spirit or suck you dry?

After hanging out with them, do you feel energized, inspired, and happy? Or do you feel drained and exhausted?

Do you share values, beliefs, and commitments? Or do you share gossip and negativity?

As we look at physical "Spring Cleaning" this week, take the time to also do a little Spring Cleaning in other areas of your life.

As we get busier, we have less time. Sometimes we have to assess certain relationships in our lives that may be impeding us from becoming our best Selves. Throw out guilt and fear. Reach out. Live your life to the fullest. And smile. You never know who you might meet that will change your life forever.

Next week there will be some exciting classes going on in place of regularly scheduled programming. April is a 5 week month, so we are using that 5th week for some Spring Cleansing and Real Rest.

All classes will be FREE of charge, but you need to sign up in advance because space is limited.

Yoga. Trigger Point. Rejuvenate, Restore, and Replenish. Finding your Core. Nutrition.

Sign up here!

I like to replenish and rejuvenate. No chips were consumed in this picture. I swear...

It's Time...

For a change. It's time to start taking charge of our food, and thereby taking charge of our lives. It's time to stop blaming big companies for all the crap they are putting in our food. It's time to stop buying the cheapest foods that happen to also be the most toxic. Take charge! Your body will thank you...

If you don't like what a company is doing, DON'T BUY THEIR FOOD! Check out this new documentary, FRESH. It's a sort of follow up to Food Inc. that is, well, reFRESHing :)

We live in a goldmine here in Austin. A goldmine of local farms, tons of Farm to Table restaurants, several organizations that educate people about how to grow their own food, the resources are unbelievable! (I'm working on a list)

You don't have to have a lot of land. Start small with a few tomato plants and some herbs. Gardening does take some practice as well as trial and error. We get a lot of good info and help from The Natural Gardener
They have so much good info about what to plant each month, how to's, and if you go out there, you can dig around and bag your own dirt!

My husband has a term for all of this: De-Evolution. Getting back to the source. Homesteading. Making our own stuff. Bartering. Centering our lives around Community.

Speaking of Community, make sure to check out the Crossfit Central main site over the next few days to see all the offerings for next week's Spring Cleansing Week!
