“Do you like braaaaan muffins?”
I woke up a little dehydrated and blah-ish from last night’s dinner. But I did 40 minutes of yoga (!!) and felt so much better from head to toe. I did YogaDownload’s Power Yoga #2, which was the first one of theirs I did not like that much. It was kind of slow and I wasn’t crazy about the instructor. I followed that with 20 minutes of Gentle Hatha II, one of my favorite stretching sessions. Soon I am going to download a 45 minute class, but I want to be sure I pick the right one! Hopefully they’ll do another 50% off week soon 🙂
The poor baker had to work at 3:15 this morning to make sweets!!! He was finished by 7 though, and when he came home and got back in bed, I got up. I ventured downstairs to find a Carrot, Raisin, Walnut Muffin waiting for me freshly baked just an hour earlier! I wish I’d gotten a pretty photo of it, but I was too excited to turn it into an oatmeal topping (I considered eating more of it with a smoothie, but smoothies = coldness).
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla soy milk, water, half medium ripe banana, pinch salt
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 2 chopped dried figs
- ~1/4 bakery sized muffin, crumbled
- ~1 tbsp Smucker’s Natural
Check out the coffee froth from French press!!! It happens when I pour the hot water on the grounds. Check this site for the perfect procedure, which I’ve been following to a T and it works perfectly: Stumptown Coffee Brewing Guide.
Not sure of today’s plans. We’ve got sunshine!! I want to spend time with the husband. We might go to Costco or out biking. Tonight we’re getting together with a bunch of friends for pizza and a movie!!
