I’m a few day behind on my blog posts pertaining to the #mindbodyyoagachallenge so here goes the entry for day 5:


This themes is huge in my mind, as it directly points to what yoga has helped me with. Being conscious of my thoughts, the energy I allow them to have, and the actions I take (or don’t take) because of them.

Being conscious of your environment and how you’re interacting within it can help your overall well-being. Stopping yourself before you say something judgmental, critical, dismissive can not only impact someone else, but the energy within yourself. Sounds spacey, but try it. Think about your response/comments before speaking them. May make the difference in someone’s day.

Day 5 affirmation: I will be conscious of my actions and do everything with love.

The Yoga Assignment: Reverse Plank – a heart opener.


Open yourself to consciousness, do things purposefully, with positivity and love. Be the change you want to see in the world.

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at
