Hello Wildflower Friends and Hello March-
Our February “Feed Your Body Like you LOVE it” was such a fun evening. Thanks to Bingham Cyclery for hosting! And THANK YOU to Julie Hansen! I have been working through her intuitive eating program with her and it has been life changing for me in so many ways! She has helped me learn to make sure I have good self care and not to use food as a way to try and meet needs (emotional, physical, spiritual, etc…) that should be met in other ways. She has helped me realize that it is ok to give myself permission to make my personal health a priority. I have been trying to find balance between dieting, exercise, training, and just being able to live my life without obsessing about if I am doing it all right or good enough for a long time and she has given me tools to work on being able to do this intuitively guided by my own biology.
Feel free to contact her if you have any other questions.
Julie will be helping me with making sure all of the feed zones on Wildflower Pedalfest day are stocked with the best combinations of nutrition to keep your body at its peak during the ride.
March 8th- 12th Athleta City Creek Friends and Family Event
One of the best things about being in charge of the Wildflower Pedalfest is the opportunity I get to work closely with so many great businesses that sincerely care about and want to support women in their own personal fitness journeys. Athleta is one of those companies! They have been sponsoring this event and helping it to be special from the beginning. They have invited Wildflower to their special FRIENDS and FAMILY event this next week. You can shop any day. No RSVP is needed you will just tell them you are with Wildflower when you check out. If you shop Athleta often you know that getting an additional 25% off your purchase is a rare opportunity. Thanks ATHLETA!
