My name is Jeni and I am giving this blogging thing a go not because I have a lot of interesting things to say (so you should spend your valuable time reading this), but because I am lucky enough to have many wonderful experiences that I want to document them somewhere. Why not somewhere private? I’m so glad you asked. Because we should all be so fortunate as to benefit from one another’s experiences. You may find this stuff bored, commonplace or pedestrian. And that’s totally fine. Please feel free to skip to the next post or close the browser entirely. I promise I won’t be offended. In fact, I won’t even know you did it 😉

If you have read to here, hopefully you’ll indulge in little bit about me, the writer. I want to live an inspired life full of shared memories. I am not a perfect person (not even close), nor am I some spiritual guru who will help you along the path to enlightenment. I won’t often have super witty things to say or great advice to give. I am your spectacularly ordinary everyday person who strives to be the best version of his/her-self each day. I am a yogi, budding crossfitter, and reformed corporate ninja with a successful career who is taking small steps towards a big career change… hopefully one that more directly impacts people’s lives in a positive way.
This blog will document my experiences with the world of health, wellness, nutrition, yoga and CrossFit, with some rock climbing peppered in. We’ll see how this experiment goes.
Disclaimer: While I’ve been practicing yoga for more than a decade, I am BRAND NEW to CrossFit as of today, December 8,2015 (the day I started this blog). Like, one-month-in-can’t-squat-to-save-my-life new. I still think burpees are a form of capital punishments and I’m pretty certain I wasn’t born with the synapses required to do a strict pull up. These posts are just the musings of your average girl with a yoga addiction who decided to see just how healthy/athletic/strong she can be. This is in part why I wanted to document and share my experiences on this daunting but exciting journey. I went to a free class at CrossFit Praxis and was instantly hooked. Signed up for membership that same day, and my life hasn’t been the same since. A month later and I’ve learned a whole new vocabulary. I’m saying things like AMRAP, Metcon, cleans, jerks, snatches, oh my! Suddenly, it’s not a gym, it’s a box! I don’t do exercises, I do a WOD! Game over.
