Most mornings I like to roll out of bed, complete my breakfast and blog post + a conquer few hours of work before I head to the gym. Other days [the focused ones!] I like to charge right through to afternoon and then use my workout as a reward to relax. Today was one of those!
I wrapped things up at 4:00 and then headed to the gym – on foot in the slight drizzle [very happy the rain held off so I could walk!]– for some relaxin’. [I find afternoon gym visits pretty relaxing compared to my group classes on M | W | F!]
My intention was a vinyasa yoga class, but I decided I’d rather read Whole Living than be alone with my mind for an hour. ‘Cause sometimes reading is more relaxing than thinking.
Pre-workout = Hungry Bar half and clementine
Post-workout = clementine!
Dinner tonight was a surprise. I thought I was thawing out an herby chicken leg from our freezer, but it turned out to be a packet of local pork sausage!! I ended up cooking the sausage just like I had planned the chicken – with mushrooms and served over kale – and it was fantastic! So much flavor! There was a little Dr. Pete’s in there too. It’s good on everything!
Some delicious wrinkly sweet ber-taters on the side. Cooked at 400* for 30 minutes of cinnamon + cayenne perfection.
I’ve gotten into a lovely ritual of hot rooibos tea with steamed milk after dinner and a dose of television. Tonight might goal is READING instead! If I keep up the 10-minutes-of-reading-before-bed-that-sends-me-straight-to-dreamland routine, I’ll never finish this book in time for the movie release!
