Week 52: Strike a Warrior Pose: A Year in the Making

This marks the fifty-second week of this little experiment.
One full year of weekly challenges, of new experiences.
One of the most important years of my life.  

The Britter Truth began as a way for me to reconnect with myself
but has quickly forced me to reevaluate my entire perspective on life.

One year ago, I was lost.

I wasn't sure who I was outside of student or wife or employee or friend.
I think we have all felt that way at some point in our lives.
With the whole world stretched out before me,
I was quite simply too overwhelmed to take that first step...

...until I started writing.

Week 51: Core Values: A Pilates Experiment

Photo courtesy of Ascend
Pilates -- a workout all about stretching and strengthening the core muscles in a highly controlled manner in order to achieve balance throughout the body as a whole.

In Pilates, the slightest movement can make a drastic difference.  It's all about knowing which muscles to activate and how to go about doing it.  It other words, it's a sneaky, ninja workout in which the effects are not apparent until the following day or two.  These exercises, performed on specialized equipment developed by Joseph Pilates himself, work on deeper muscles that help with stability in the body.  It's those muscles, the ones you never even knew you had because you'd never activated them before that will be sore the day after your session.

I LOVE sushi!  This week I was challenged to make my own sushi at home.

So that's exactly what I did...

but with a twist...

These are the photos of my steak dinner with a bit of a Japanese flair.
