My my was yoga so fun tonight!! I love my studio! I got there around 4:30 for the 5:45 class, so I had plenty of time to chat with Tanner and go for a walk with Emily! Tanner is a yoga genius – you should see the poses he can do! He’s trying to convince me to try Ashtanga yoga. Do any of you love it?
Emily arrived a bit later and we headed out in a gorgeous neighborhood for a 40 minute walk. We had so much to catch up on!! She’s running a MARATHON this weekend – wish her luck! We also got to walk a cute dog when we passed her owner in a yard and offered to take the doggie for a spin. She was a fluffy little dog and so cute!
Yoga was great. REALLY hard on the muscles tonight. It was an hour hot vinyasa class and we held some of the poses really long. My hips were also on cloud 9 with all the hip openers we did
Ever done a Spider? It’s like a really wide push-up. OH SO HARD!! We held three of them for a long time. I almost collapsed.
I wasn’t very hungry this afternoon and only had half of my Amazing Grass bar. I knew if I didn’t eat something I’d be starving during class, but I didn’t feel like eating the entire thing. Turns out I should have because I left class RAVENOUS!
Matt was going to make a lentil soup in the crockpot tonight, but I emailed him earlier and said to take the night off of cooking and we should just eat frozen/canned soups. I found this guy in the freezer from November 15th: Cocoa Coconut Chili! From Eat, Drive & Be Vegan and one of the best chilis I’ve ever had!!
Chocolate Coconut Almond for the second time today!!!
On the side I enjoyed a nice Flax Oat Bran bun lid smothered in a little real butter. I also snacked on a few chips while heating up my soup – hungry, hungry hippo!!
To drink, I tried out a new juice sent for review: Genesis Today Resveratrol.
Here’s the ingredient list. It’s made from a ton of superfruits. While this beverage may be packed with invisible super-nutrients, I’d likely drink it just for taste It tasted great – more like red grape juice than anything else. But nice and fruity.
In the summertime I love to mix juices with seltzer or just water and ice for a mocktail (and I dilute them to cut back on the sugar concentration), so I enjoyed this a lot. I use about a shot glass worth of juice and fill the glass up with water (seltzer when I have it on hand!) (And sometimes a cherry!)
Thankfully this dinner filled me up – but it took an hour of Glee for it to settle!! I thought the episode was good but they really need to bring back some of the high energy music from the first few episodes. STAT. [Also, I can’t believe they had the dad say he hated Duke! WTF!?]
Just ate a small square of chocolate. Now I’m going to answer> emails and crawl in bed!
