First off, a pre-yoga snack:
As per my training sched, I did yoga for an hour today. For those of you who may be interested, the yoga program I follow has about a half-hour to 40-minute "warm-up" period that includes lots of sun salutations that flow into poses like the warrior series, triangles, etc. It is pretty killer. My arms and thighs are almost always burning. The last 20 minutes or so feature more relaxing, stretching poses, like pigeon, cow, and forward bends. During the first half, sometimes I wonder why I am putting myself through this, but the second half makes it so worth it. :)
One of my favorite things to do is cook and try out new recipes, which is exactly what I did this evening. I was really excited to try a Spicy Garlic Shrimp recipe from Eat, Live, Run, and decided to invite my parents over for dinner. The only change I made to the recipe was that I also added broccoli with the shrimp.
After dinner we went to a local ice cream stand for dessert. I ordered a mint Oreo cyclone with vanilla fro-yo, and was pretty disappointed. I hate when mixes with Oreos end up being all crumbs and no chunks of cookie. I should learn my lesson by now!!
I gotta run! Keith and I have to pick up his flight itinerary for tomorrow morning. I will post my training schedule for the week when I get back!
