I didn’t set my alarm this morning but I woke up with exactly 8 hours of sleep. I still feel a bit flu-like, but after a session of yoga, I felt a lot better I did 40 minutes of Shoulder Opener #1. I would recommend this class to folks who want to strengthen while they stretch out the upper body. With the exception of a really hard frog pose bind, this session was simple and effective with no lunge poses (for those of you who hate them). There was also a crow, which I held for FIVE SECONDS!!! I think I can officially say I “can do crow” now
Oats followed yoga, per usual. Today’s bowl was awesome –
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla almond milk, water, pinch salt, 1/4 large banana (leftover), vanilla
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 cup pumpkin, heated in bowl and stirred in at end (due to husband’s hatred of pumpkin in the pot)
- Tbsp pumpkin butter
- 1/2 Spooky Smores Z-bar, crumbled
- 1 heaping tsp Heath Toffee pieces
- Blob of Barney Butter
New coffee today: Millstone Vanilla Nut from Harris Teeter. For being less expensive than other flavors we’ve had lately, I liked it! With 2% milk…
MY EYE-FI CARD IS WORKING AGAIN!! YAY!!! (After spending 45 minutes last night trying to reconfigure it, I restarted my computer this morning and suddenly it works again. Guf!)
I’m turning this rainy day into a workday so I can play with my girlfriends tomorrow. We’re going to brunch and to see The Reader.
