Today I intend to dance! Today I intend to have fun! Today I intend to feel like I'm 8! Today I intend to feel good! Today I intend to love! Today I intend to think about the things I love!

Message from Clair

Clair, how can I make a website that people come to and instantly become enlightened?
Everyone is on their own journey and will hear different things at different times. Enlightenment is not a specific thing, it is a continue growing organic material. Each human thought is added onto the previous in a growing fractal chain. However, the simple concept that life is good is something that you can say in words and pictures but that everyone has to experience on her own. Life is good, but you have to work to figure it out. It's like a puzzle. You have to decide to put the puzzle together. Some people don't know there is a puzzle yet. But it's all coming. It's time!

Telling my future

Today there will be a massive advancement in human consciousness. Interactions will be playful and wide eyed. People will come together in love. Today is a big deal. Today everything is coming to a head. Today is the day that everything changes. Today the paradigm shift becomes more clear. Today will be the best day of my life and yours. Promise!

Interview with myself

What's up with Body Pump?
Body Pump is a 60 minute barbell class where you do squats, bench presses, lunges, curls, etc in time with some excellent jams. It is quick paced and since we use a barbell it is appropriate for any strength level. You can up your weights whenever it starts getting to easy. The instructor Magen is the most motivational, positive fitness instructor I've ever encountered. She is magick. She gets us out of bed after 2 hours of sleep on a Saturday morning to PUMP IT.

Since starting BP I've realized how little muscle running builds! Now that we've been doing it for 2 straight weeks, I notice a huge difference in my running ability. My core strength is massively improved and I notice it during dancing and Astrojaxin. I feel no guilt eating whatever I want because my goal is to build as much muscle as possible! I am super thrilled about this class because I build muscle really easily so it's been piling on! Do recommend ^_^

Today's affirmations

  • The paradigm is shifting.
  • The new reality is now.

    I am about ten kinds of inspired by you to get back into body pump, I miss feeling strong and pumping to 80s classics :)

    Also, those tacos sound life changing! Any chance of you sharing your recipe? x

  • emily

    those chokers are GORGEOUS!!! ahhhhhhhhh!! :D

    feeling yourself getting stronger is SO COOL and definitely something i am enjoying with my new workout regime as well (we’re doing p90x! it’s actually a lot of fun because the instructor is super posi, which i didn’t expect!)

    i ended up skipping around in that deepak chopra book…did you finish it? i found myself more interested in the “soul” part than body part…but i think i will eventually bounce around and finish the whole thing.

    ALSO: have you read “Add More ‘-ing’ to Your Life” by Gabrielle Bernstein?? i’d love to hear your thoughts on it if you have/ever do!!

    “The new reality is now.” —love it. xo

  • Adrienne O.

    OMG Thank you sooo much for the shout out. :D Your posts are always so inspiring to me!! And that fruit salad looks amazing *drool*

  • jessica mullen

    Bridie, I cannot even DESCRIBE how good Body Pump makes me feel! A huge part of it is my super awesome instructor ^_^

    As for the tacos, this is what’s up: we use this recipe for the tortillas: then use packaged rice, the kind that’s already cooked (when we are in a hurry, heh). The beans come straight out of a can, and the soyrizo doesn’t even need to be heated. Again, straight out of the package. The only thing that needs to be cooked are the potatoes – we dice them, (we made 3 baking potatoes), put them in a pyrex bowl with maybe 5T olive oil, a ton of nutritional yeast, garlic salt, pepper & crushed red pepper. Then put all the ingredients on the tortilla with some hot sauce, roll up into wax paper and enjoy later with queso & salsa!

    Emily, ok YAY I have finally connected your tumblr with your Facebook! WOOT! You just became a whole person to me hehe. I read about a little about what you wrote about p90x – it sounds really fun. I am so impressed you’ve been keeping up with it. I want to try it some time, but I want to do it with a real person! Oh also there is definitely not enough room in my apartment for such activities ^_^

    So that Deepak book – I skipped around too, because I didn’t start reading it until like 2 days before it was due. But there were two parts I loved – one was when he was saying how the medical community has these “beliefs” that are actually not facts at all, like “the body is a machine made of parts that wears down”. And also I liked his interview with this woman who said, after she “realized” what was up with positive thinking, that she hasn’t had a setback in 20 years! People observing might see some of her experiences as problems, but to her they are fun challenges. And that is exactly what I want to be saying in 20 years!

    I just placed a hold on the Bernstein book, will be reading it soon! Thanks for the rec :]

    Adrienne, thank you for inspiring me with your gorgeous jewelry design! The fruit salad was the shit, I admit :D

    Oh and about those potatoes, we bake them in a covered Pyrex for about 45 minutes (stirring once) at 420 degrees ^_^
