Dana Treat – Treat Yourself


Posted July 27, 2010

Yesterday was my birthday.  I turned 40.  I’ve been talking about this for a long time so I won’t go on and on about it.

Last year, I decided this was going to be the year of yoga.  I wanted to start slowly and get my practice back on track so that, on my 40th I could do 40 sun salutations.  I am not a big goal-setter.  But I did set this goal and I accomplished it.  Without really even breaking a sweat.

Yep.  40 of those.

Last year I also set some food goals for myself.  I haven’t gotten around to making my own pasta yet (I bought the Kitchen Aid attachment though!), or crèpes, and I’ve given up on the idea of a sourdough starter because the truth is, I don’t really like sourdough bread.  I did make Holly B’s cinnamon rolls and almond butterhorns, I’ve made lots of ice cream, and I’ve gotten more practice with layer cakes.  I’m not sure I could say I’ve gotten better at them.  I feel they still control me rather than me controlling them.  After another year of practice perhaps.

My 30′s were quite a decade.  I started them untangling myself from a disastrous relationship and working at a job that I hated.  Just a few short months later, I met Randy and everything changed.  In the last 10 years I have…

gotten married
had two children
trained to teach yoga
taught yoga
moved to London and back again
traveled a fair amount
bought and sold two houses
started a personal chef business
stopped my personal chef business
started my blog

And countless other little and big things.  I’ve been busy.  I wonder what the next 10 years holds.
