How I engage in health and life This past year I started indoor cycling about 3 times per week. I saw the results when we went on a ski trip and I had more stamina than ever. It has motivated me to keep it up.

How I engage in health and life
I’m an avid hiker, back packer and mountain climber. I recently planted and grew my first urban vegetable garden, igniting a new twist in my appreciation for food. Having a direct connection with what we eat helps us all relate to and respect what we consume. Plus, it’s a good excuse to get dirty.

How I engage in health and life:
For starters, I love skiing with my family! I also enjoy running and try to log 25-30 miles per week. In terms of diet, I am obsessed with kale and rarely go a day without it. To keep my mind nourished, I travel extensively, am learning a second language and dance Sevillanas every chance I get!

How I engage in health and life I do early morning cardio and weight training during the work week. On weekends, I like to play flag football, sand volleyball, and golf. As a family, we walk a few times per week.

My healthy diet consists of small choices each day. I choose fish when my budget allows, and grill a couple of times a week. My favorite healthy meal these days is grilled salmon, grilled asparagus, and roasted pine nut hummus with celery.
