40 Days of Hot Yoga

by Meghann on May 10, 2010

Is it really only Monday?

After the day I’ve had, I could have swore it was at least Wednesday!

My afternoon was packed with data pulling, e-blasting, and blah, blah, blah. Isn’t having a desk job so much fun? ;)

At least I had a fun snack to entertain me along the way.

Yum!

I made the impromptu decision last week to purchase the unlimited 40 day pass at my new favorite hot yoga studio in Orlando. I figured if I made it to at least 4 classes in the next 40 days then I will have got my money’s worth out of the past. Of course, I plan to do a little more than that.

This afternoon I headed to hot yoga for session #2 of the pass. I’m going to try to make it to yoga at least 3 times a week with the pass. :)

Today’s practice was a little different than the previous ones. For starters the class seemed to be a lower flow. Instead of moving from one pose to the next quickly and repeatedly, today’s practice focused on holding poses and gaining strength. It was also VERY crowded! I made quite a few new friends when i continually bumped them with my legs, feet, arms, and head. lol

Yoga was followed by an easy dinner.

I had frozen some portions of the lentil loaf I made a few weeks ago for future meals. The portioned heated up nicely in the microwave and was extra tasty with the ketchup coating.

While the loaf was defrosting on the counter, I made mashed rutabaga by steaming cubed rutabaga until it was soft then mashing it with a little almond milk.

Steamed green beans completed the plate.

For dessert I had a serving of plain vanilla ice cream – I forgot how good plain vanilla ice cream could be! – with granola and dark chocolate edamame.

It’s wayyy past my bed time.

Good Night!
