Nothing stretches the chest like dancer.
Nothing stretches the IT band like revolved half moon.
Nothing stretches the hams like down dog.
Nothing rejuvenates me for running like pigeon!
I can tell if I’ve missed a week because I’m that much tighter!
Today’s class was a 90 minute Super Flow class. My gosh it was hot and hard and we were totally intoxicated from exhaustion, as Tanner said. I need Y2Yoga to come to Charlottesville!
Emily and I post-yoga looking like we were punched in the face!
Before I left I had a substantial snack, half a breakfast.
When I got home at 9:30 I was planning another small breakfast – likely yogurt and fruit.
But when your husband is beaming because he made you oatmeal and coffee, you eat the oatmeal and coffee!!
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup water (we are out of milk!! I was amazed at the difference in texture without milk. These oats were so gummy! If you haven’t tried oats + half milk/half water, please try it out!)
- Half banana
- Pinch salt
- Carrot Raisin Walnut muffin bottom (Added at beginning of cooking! I thought it would get all soggy and gross, but it incorporated into the oats and made them really fun! Carrots and raisins and walnuts dispersed throughout).
- Topping: About 1/6 of a giant muffin and some Justin’s Maple Almond Butter
First + Second breakfast were pretty calorie and carb-dense so I’ll lighten up on carbs for lunch!
LOVE this crazy Bora Bora mug!!!!
EarthFare fair trade + organic free coffee!!
Today I’m working on 3 freelance projects: a cooking demo video for Good Bite, a nutrition column for Breathe, some Open Sky updates, and two guest posts for the NC Sweet Potato blog! It’s going to be a busy day, but I do enjoy freelance work so it’s worth the effort 🙂
Might go buy some new running shoes! You guys convinced me. DUH – the health of my lower body is worth $100! I saw it very clearly 🙂 Not sure if I’ll have time today or if I’ll have to wait until after tomorrow’s 11 miler, but now I’m not sure I want to run 11 miles in my old shoes so I might just make the time.
Oh, and GO DUKE !!!
