Hiking the Nauyaca Falls with @p_devaughn
Another great night with @wearecarbonado
Garden updates!!! Wildflowers in bloom. Kale, cabbage, squash & hot peppers growing strong!! Tomato plants could be a bit fuller (we’ve got just one tomato so far ) but I’m hopeful that with a little more sun and little more love they will be producing soon. Accepting all plant suggestions. If you have successful tomatoes in your garden lmk in the comments below what you are doing to keep them healthy and happy.
Just a couple sweaty selfies and highlights from my trip to Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary with my master naturalist class. We were so lucky to have such knowledgable guide on our boat tour thank you so much @jugbayws !! #masternaturalist friends - name that bird! 🦅 We saw a juvenile resting in the nest, not yet able to fly and and several adults flying over head.
Pilates fun @jordinsparadise New Pilates Classes Monday 5pm🤸🏾♀️ Tuesday 6pm🧘🏾♀️
Digging into our first @imperfectproduce fruit and veggie box to feature this beautiful super star the #sweetpotato I made sweet potato hash with onions and peppers from our produce box and dressed it up with black beans, avocado to make the perfect #vegan breakfast. For my animal protein living friends, You could also swap the black beans for eggs or breakfast meat but personally I think the combo of black beans and sweet potatoes is super tasty. All in all, loving my time doing some #uglycooking with veggies from @imperfectproduce
Escaping the 100+ degree heat in #washingtondc with a little r&r at Catoctin Mountain Park and Cunningham Falls. Cheers to new friends, climbing rock faces and waterfalls barefoot, and campfire singalongs
This morning in Master Naturalist class we studied mammals. Here are some quick highlights about bears: 1 ) a bear pelt 2 ) a bear skull - it’s teeth tell us he’s an omnivore 3 ) an impression of a bears paw print 4 ) that stuffed animal is the size of a newborn bear 5 ) bear scat aka bear poop - not that’s not real it’s an educational tool 😅 #masternaturalist #naturelovers #bears #blackbear #marylandwildlife
Thank you so much for including me in your mentoring night today! I loved meeting the inspiring young leaders in the #youthenergysquad
Sometimes we go looking for a new diet or exercise regimen as a quick fix to lose weight, feel more confident or for general health. Pilates is no quick fix, and furthermore any quick fix that someone offers is not a path to long term positive health outcomes. However, Pilates exercises, done with regularity can bring you the strong, healthy body that you desire. Consistency is key! Join me every Sunday at 4pm at Jordin’s Paradise as we work through the exercises of Joseph Pilates to build strength, flexibility, and the skills to remain healthy in all the other parts of our lives! | | | #blackgirlpilates #pilatesstrong #pilatesbody #stottpilates #pilateslovers #pilatesfit #pilatesmat #pilatesmatwork #matpilates #consistencyiskey #noquickfix
Progress Report on the take down of the overgrown cedar bushes aka “trees” in my front yard. Time to reveal the beauty of this house and open up a new garden bed where I can plant some flowers, fruits, and veggies. We are one step closer to harvesting our first summer salad from the garden. Huge shout out to my friend John who helped my take down this enormous bush. You are the best!!! @ricorico_l .j.e #gardens #urbangardens #urbanagriculture #gardening #fruit #veggies #dcgardens

Feeling refreshed and renewed after a weekend away with my 2019 ELP Chesapeake Regional Network cohort. . . . I’m feeling so much love and appreciation for all the wonderful people that I met this weekend and all of the wonderful souls back home who made this retreat possible for me!!! @resourcesforthefuture #ELP
I’m so glad that I’m am teaching #PilatesMat at Jordin’s Paradise every Sunday at 4PM. Come out and join me for a class sometime soon, ok? Home Town: Cleveland Heights, Ohio Birthday & Astrological Sign: May 11 - Taurus My favorite color: Purple My favorite food: Popcorn & Wine - It's my #oliviapope dinner A Day in my Life: Wake up early to cycle or walk my dog, work as an eco-warrior 9-5, more dog walking, eating and if I'm lucky I finish the night with trashy reality TV shows. Does anyone else miss #BachelorinParadise ? Preferred Songs: Anything Beyoncé Teaching Style: I speak in sweet dulcet tones so you can forget how hard your abs/butt/arms are working 😉 My Personality: More of a lover than a fighter (but don't test me ) Reason for Teaching: When I learned Pilates, I learned how to love my body. It changed my relationship with myself so that I could truly embrace #selflove . Before Pilates, I probably would have described my body as the thing I needed to overcome in order to get my #bestlife . Now I understand that it is my temple, my home, and if I treat it well, it will work with me instead of against me. Can't Live Without: Love, friends, family, my dog, the sun, nature Testimonials: "I hate doing ab exercises at home, even though I should, which is why I need someone to kick my butt and tell me what to do." 😃 @stungray To the rebirth of Paradise
