Decided to go to yoga for the first time in a few years and saw this on my way home, while waiting for the bus in chilly 5 degree weather - “urbs in horto”. At first, I read it as ”morto” and thought it seemed rather morbid for a slogan. However, the Latin phrase means “city in a garden” which I believe rings true. 🌳🏙🌺 #chicagoparks #choosechicago #chicago #chicity #windycity #sweethomechicago #chicagoparkdistrict #urbsinhorto #urbanspaces #burnham #landscapearchitecture #cityinagarden #igerschicago #getoutside #wander #cityofchicago #parks #greenspaces #winter

Saturday swim class with the wildest guy in the class! #splash #chicagoparkdistrict #swimming #littlefish #wildman 💦🐠🏊‍♂️😂
Pool day! It's so warm in here that it's hard to imagine that winter is out there. #ChicagoParkDistrict #Natatorium #SwimmingPool
It may be cold outside, but it's nice and toasty in here. #cpdswim #chicagoparkdistrict #swimming
A few years ago, I decided to take adult swim lessons because 1. I didn’t know how to swim and 2. I knew swimming was a GREAT workout. I went to class every Friday night for almost 6 months and became a pretty good swimmer (the best in my class surprisingly lol). I stopped taking classes once I had the hang of it and have swam here and there over the years. So back the my post the other day about self love and when I was my happiest, well it was also the same year I was swimming. I was doing something that I ended up loving and also getting a great workout in! On this self love journey, it’s something I have wanted to get back into, but I don’t belong to a gym since I do orange theory. Welllll, yesterday I looked up to see if there were any indoor pools by my apartment. Turns out, the Chicago Park District has indoor pools all over the city....what?! Have I been living under a rock the past 14 years?? And even better, there’s one not even five minutes walking from my apartment! I went to the website and they just so happen to have a free trial week going on so I popped in on lunch today and got a 30 minute swim in. (Side note - I am very blessed to have an awesome career and manager that let me work from home most Fridays so lunchtime today was perfect!!) I am a little rusty, but boy was it a GREAT workout! And the best part is it’s only $40 for 3 months. Ummmm sign me up!! I’m going to be joining today and combined with orange theory, it will be a great workout routine!!! 💪🏻 #swim #swimming #swimmer #schwimmen #workout #swimlaps #workoutmotivation #weight #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #exercise #happy #healthy #selflove #active #chicago #chicagoparkdistrict #indoorpool #pool #indoorswimmingpool

Day 5 of my month of mindfulness. Along with dropping off our first Christmas tree to be recycled for the #chicagoparkdistrict , we also bought our first set of gaming dice for future quests with friends. Studies show that connecting with friends and loved ones releases neurotransmitters that directly impact inflammation. Can't wait to use these with @sar_bear410 and Logan! #monthofmindfulness #aip #dungeonsanddragons #pathfinder #letsquest #healingthroughfriendship
Every age is my new favorite age. I swear. 💙
I'm loving this stage because we can take them out and show them the world - and it is actually sinking in! You know?! We get to be bystanders of all these beautiful first time experiences!! We get to live a bit vicariously through them and it is my favorite thing!!!
We started swim lessons through the Chicago park district yesterday (such a deal!) and it was so fun watching the boys in this new environment. Surprisingly- our little 🐠, Micah, was much more apprehensive about it than Gabie! I was so surprised!! He was not so sure about the new people, new place, new things (and was shivering pretty good after a few minutes) - but he did think riding on his belly on the surfboard across the pool was the coolest thing (though he tried to temper his smile a bit! Ha), and he squealed when he got to play water basketball.
Gabe on the other hand was shockingly good about it all from the start and pretty excited and happy by the end - even jumping off the surfboard/diving board and laughing when the instructor splashed him at the end!
I'm excited to see how they grow and learn to get more comfortable in the water between now and March!! (Next up: gymnastics on Friday!) 🙌🏼💙 #chicagoparkdistrict #mgtylertwins

Well...Christmas is definitely over. This is a mound of collected trees at the park district, going to the mulcher. #chicagoparkdistrict #humboldtparkchicago

I drive through #HumboldtPark 🌳 everyday on my way home from school and I couldn’t resist the white blanket of #snow ❄️ anymore. So I stopped and went for a nice and peaceful #walk in the #park. The snow is icy and the #windchill 🌬 is -15F but, it was such a nice walk!! Can’t wait to bring my pup 🐾 here so she can play in the snow with her snow boots. 👢

Same Bros, that was sendin' shots
They reachin' out like their back itchin'
Why would I hop in some beef (why?)
When I could just hop in a Porsche?
You heard she gon' do what from who?
That's not a reliable source, no
So tell me, have you seen her?
Let me wrap my weave up
I'm the trap Selena

My favorite place to go in January? Hands down favorite is @gpconservatory . The temps are tropical year round. And when the temp outside is 3 degrees, a little tropical getaway is needed. And this one doesn’t require a flight or a passport. Check out my instastory for more pics from our tropical day. (The holiday show Fire and Ice is only here until Jan 7th so visit soon before this exhibit closes.)

Who decided that New Years Resolutions have to be so lame? Life is tough enough, so I say pick something FUN to look forward to in 2018! Mine are to have more brunch dates with my gal pals, treat everyday like Christmas, invest in my closet, get more massages, & eat LOTS of delicious food! Who is with me?! Cheers friends 🥂

I've taken my feet for granted my ability to walk swiftly throughout any terrain. The simplicity of cooking a meal in my kitchen or even taking a shower. The privilege to get on a slackline and test my boundaries. To climb on a rock wall. To teach and take a yoga class.

The next 12 weeks [minimally] will be spent healing a broken ankle, and re-strengthening my entire body to do the things that I love once again. It will be spent doing yoga in a completely supported manner. I will combine breath with slow movement and deep stretching. I will nourish my body with good foods and lots of water. I will rest my mind and feed my brain with lots of reading - something that has taken a backseat this last year. 
My foot will never be the same, and I will embrace the new vehicle that has been given to me.

Fully trusting the process of the universe 💫💫💫 #goodvibesonly #gratitude #yogabyjac
