I started this week in Olympia, Washington on course to level up my nutrition education through the Nutritional Therapy Association. The weekend was BEAUTIFUL weather-wise, and I am so grateful I was able to get outside early on Monday morning for a quick jaunt up Elk Mountain. The rest of the week I prioritized adequate rest and mindful movement through yoga.
Easy 6K run while listening to “Eat the Yolks”- a great overview of WHY nutrition is so important, and how to eat the way we were meant to eat.
MONDAY: Hiking! The mountains were calling!
So grateful for an early start (6:30AM at the trailhead) to the top of Elk Mountain. It’s 8K return and about 800m elevation gain. In other words, a great workout. I was able to get home by 9AM and refuel with breakfast, and nourish my soul with the family.

I got up early to start my day with a yoga session, and spent the rest of the day getting to Vancouver to embark on my very first cruise, heading up to Alaska. I did manage my 10,000 steps and am determined not to use the elevator while on board.
