Sweat

by Meghann on May 13, 2010

I didn’t know what sweat was before tonight. I thought I knew, but I really had NO idea.

Sweat is actually being so drenched that you are needing to wipe your eyes every two minutes to prevent the stinging. Sweat is what pours out of you when you hold warrior three and a puddle forms underneath you. Sweat is when there isn’t a single dry spot on you. And sweat is what happens when hot yoga is as intense as it was tonight.

We had a new teacher this evening and she was tough! I have been trying to pin point what exactly it was that made her extra tough, but I can’t seem to grasp it. All I know is that in the first 10 minutes I was already breathing heavy and needing to take breaks in child’s pose to recover.

Before class I fueled up with a Pure Bar.

Class was brutal, but for some reason I never leave yoga starving. I wonder why that is?

However, not feeling the need to chew my arm off is not necessarily a bad thing. 😉 The non-hunger gave me just enough time to make what I was really craving for dinner – Nut Butter Crusted Fries.

Mmmm… I know I just had these for dinner on Sunday, but they were so good I wanted them all over again! If I didn’t have a blog I probably would have made them every night this week. 😉

This time I had a combination of rutabaga, parsnip, and carrots that I coated with peanut butter and olive oil then baked at 400 for 30 minutes.

These were soooo good dipped in bbq sauce.

The rutabaga took to the nut butter coating beautifully. Next I am going to try sweet potato. 🙂

With my nut butter crusted fries I had a side of roasted broccoli.

By the time I sat down to eat my hunger level was just right. I devoured my full plate; no problem. 🙂

For dessert I dug into the Green & Black mint dark chocolate bar Sabrina sent me yesterday.

With a piece of salt water taffy. 🙂

Good News: My internet is back!!

Bad News: It technically isn’t my internet. My box is broken and I’m piggy backing off of a neighbor’s wifi signal.

Oh well, stolen internet is better than no internet at all. 😉

Good night!!

Sweet Potatoes & Black Beans are one of those combos I never would have thought of before I started reading blogs, but it is seriously one of my favorites! I spruced the combination up today by adding some more »

A Special Breakfast

May 13, 2010

This morning I resurrected my last Easter scone for consumption. Isn’t she a beauty? I was hanging on to this baby for a ‘special occasion,’ but this morning I realized any time I ate it would be considered a special occasion. 🙂 I made sure to save each and every bite! Now, I just need more »
