5 really good reasons to get up at 5:30AM on your first day of summer vacation:
- My yoga studio is a 10 minute WALK from Karen’s!!!!!!!!
- Best friends
- A wide open day for playing!!!
Emily and I had planned to go to 5:30PM yoga, but when we found out Tanner was only teaching 6:30AM, she convinced me it would be worth it to get up and go. It SO WAS!! I actually woke up naturally before my alarm – hello body clock! – so getting up was very easy. And the sun was already rising!!
I can’t believe I live 3 blocks from my studio. So fun!!!!! I walked there in 10 minutes – it was gorgeous. Great way to start the day for sure!
Yoga was awesome. Flowing. Sweating. Mind-bending. Relaxing.
I didn’t eat anything before I left, but I did spike my water bottle with half a bottle of Gatorade leftover from our move. I use to shun sports drinks, thinking they were a waste of calories, but it’s quite amazing how much they really do for you during a workout. I definitely could not have ran my half marathon without them, and today’s yoga class was definitely enhanced by the little boost of glucose.
I walked back home after yoga and woke up Karen for breakfast! Welcome back oatmeal
I’m not used to making it on a gas stove with a Calphlon pot – I miss my old kitchen! But it still turned out good. Karen doesn’t like fruit and did not want banana in her oats. GASP! I ended up just mashing half a banana into my cooked version.
- 2/3 cup oats, 2/3 cup milk, 2/3 cup water
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese (Breakstone’s) stirred in at end
- Vanilla, pinch salt, cinnamon
A side of plants!
I topped mine with TJ’s Sunflower Butter and a sprinkle of Bear Naked Apple Pecan Trail mix
Bananas on the bottom
My hair is so long it interrupts blog photos!! Getting it cut today!! Just a wee bit.
Karen always wants me to photograph her plants so here they are!
Full speed ahead!!!!!! Places to go. People to see.
