Let's Move Event at The White House
It was all good just a week ago . . .
Last week I had the opportunity to visit The White House. Yes. THE WHITE HOUSE. I am still pinching myself. I was invited on behalf of She Knows for the Let's Move Initiative that First Lady Michelle Obama uses as her platform. As a fitness fanatic, I was ecstatic and as a person who believes exercising and eating well go hand in hand. I was also happy to share this moment with my good friend Olga.
I don't have kids and I can't imagine how hard it is to get healthy food on the table each night. There are so many temptations to just bag it, drive away, and be done with dinner. I think the campaign should add us savvy aunties, uncles, and people who love children but decided not to parent because we are influencers as well.
As a yogi, I find my solace on the mat. It's where I move and learn about myself. This event got me interested in maybe doing a kid's yoga training. I think it would fun and give me a different perspective on my downward facing dog.
A highlight was seeing The White House chef show a quick and simple mason jar salad recipe. Once my kitchen is complete in the next few weeks I will be on a serious salad binge and plan to make this quick and easy recipe.
