I started the morning off with a bowl of cereal and cup of coffee, and then an hour-long yoga session. We finally got a working TiVo hooked up yesterday, and the first thing I couldn't wait to record was my favorite yoga program, Inhale. I highly recommend this program, especially for anyone who is a beginner or may think yoga is not for them. You really work up a sweat and challenge your muscles. I know I will definitely be sore tomorrow! Inhale is on the Oxygen network weekdays at 6am Eastern. I don't normally wake up before 6 o'clock, which is why I need the DVR. :) My new goal is to complete a yoga workout at least twice every week. This will be another great way to work on my strength, as well as improve my flexibility (boy, did I realize how tight my muscles are today!). Have you set any health goals for yourself, recently??
After yoga, I went for a 2-mile run. I would like to start increasing my mileage again. I think whatever is holding me back right now is mostly mental. I think maybe I'm a little bored with my routes and the music on my iPod. I'll have to get out of this funk!
I got home, took a shower, and made my daily Green Monster!
I used the same recipe as the previous two days, but added in a handful of blueberries. Mmm...taste those antioxidants! I still need to work on my blending skills, as I always end up with small chunks of ice, no matter how hard I try to break them all up. I also used my last banana today, so I need to restock!
I ran a few errands, and then came home for lunch:
I made another big salad with spring mix greens, cucumber, tomato, tuna, olive oil and vinegar, fresh ground pepper, and a few splashes of Texas Pete hot sauce. Today's salad was much better. The tuna made all the difference! :)
I also had a tiny bowl of leftover mac and cheese. I tried to show just how small the bowl is, but I don't think I captured it very well. It's kind of the size you might use to put dip in, if that helps you visualize. It was all very tasty and I am pretty full!
Time to get back to the grind of studying. I will catch up with you all later today!
