My challenge is going well so far! Today I went to a class I hadn’t been to in forever- yoga!
I really like yoga, but I’ve never gotten into it. I stopped going when I was training for the marathon last year because I was so sore all the time. I know that could have helped it, but I could hardly walk most of the time, so I really neglected it.
I finally busted out my mat and got my butt to the gym for an 8 p.m. class. I wish it were earlier, but oh well.
I wore these yoga socks that I got in my stocking at Christmas. They look funny, but they really prevented me from slipping! Bonus- they hid my black toenail. No one should have to look at that!
Perfect if your feet sweat a lot. Not going to lie… mine totally do.
I really liked the class and the instructor, but I think yoga is so hard! I lack two important things- flexibility and upper body strength. Do you want to hear something sad? I can’t even touch my toes! How are the mighty fallen… I need to start stretching 🙂
Back up to this morning- I made whole wheat pancakes for breakfast!
I doubled the wheat bran and egg whites to make them a little bigger, and topped them with honey nut cream cheese (obsessed) and maple syrup. They were the perfect fuel for an 8 a.m. math test… ugh!
Lunch was tabbouleh on top of some hummus my sister made.
I also had an apple… and them came home and had another!
I had the second with chocolate hummus. Apples just aren’t apples if you can’t dip them in something 🙂
I caved and bought two little cans of pumpkin. I’ve missed it terribly!
That is my idea of comfort food. Pumpkin yogurt is the best!
Potatoes are also a good comfort food! After reading Matt‘s post about roasted potatoes today, I had a serious craving for them. Actually, I always do, but it was especially serious today! I rubbed a potato, some squash, half a turnip (no idea why I bought that, but it was good!) and some carrots with pumpkin pie spice and roasted them at 425 for 30 minutes.
Topped with more maple syrup. Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Dessert was grapes… too many grapes. I’m still full! Now, it’s off to bed I go. I have a 5:45 a.m. spinning class to get to tomorrow. I think I can, I think I can…
Have you ever taken a yoga class?
