... what would it be? For me, the answer is easy... s.l.e.e.p. Baby Pen is what, 12 days old now and it's remarkable how much it feels like 12 years since I last slept. After I inject some caffeine into my veins and the fog lifts (slightly), I fully appreciate what I crave just as badly. Connection. Friendships. Community. It literally feeds my soul like coffee. I've always been one that prefers village-style parenting. Where I'm surrounded by other mamas going through the same grind, the same sh!t, the same challenges and the same joys. I find that in sharing this all, I'm able to ground myself in a way I could never do alone. While this isn't my first rodeo, baby, in many ways, it still feels like it. And I find myself once again seeking opportunities to connect with the outside world to ensure that I don't get lost in the baby haze that for me, can sometimes lend itself to baby insanity. (and umm, like, not the good kind of crazy) What about you? What is one thing you're desperately missing? Craving? Or continuing to chase? Does it align with anything we can provide for you here? Is it more movement? More strength? More confidence? More joy? More connection? As you know for me, BASE has never been simply about the workout itself. I love it physically for sure, but I love how its made me feel that.much.more. Additionally, what this culture and community has provided for me mentally and emotionally for over a year now...? I couldn't measure even if I tried. It's that damn good. So while I remain somewhat submerged in my newborn submarine, please know that I'm never far. And that staying connected, even when completely underwater, is always the breath of fresh air I need. In sweaty gratitude, always, -B xo
Me, personally- I love them. Like, I seek them out specifically every time I go to the gas station. I mean they are kinda a rare delicacy, being surprisingly hard to find at times. Now, you may not view them with as much affection as I do, nor would you potentially spend time trying to find them as enthusiastically. There are things however, that bring you this level of devotion. Where you seek it out with the sheer commitment to grab a hold of it, whether it be this salty goodness or something else entirely. For those things, we don't need to rely on self- motivation or discipline to make it happen. We just simply pursue it without giving it much thought. For other things, like say, exercise, we don't always have the same cravings. While I'd like to believe BASE serves as something you look forward to, you may not always feel like scouring the gas station for it. This is where our schedule matters. Where our routines matter. Where the habits we create step in to serve us when our desire for the salt fades. What schedule, routine, or habit can you set when it comes to moving with us? What can I provide that makes creating the time and space for BASE that much more consistent? Giving the chance for schedule, routine and habit to take over. Think about it. Then share it with me. I mean, I will never be as delicious as Corn Nuts, but I will do my damndest to continue to provide a program and a community that both fills your belly and your heart. In sweaty gratitude, always, -B xo
