Week Three

by Meghann on May 24, 2010

Today began week three of my 40 day Hot Yoga pass. I promise to give a full review once the 40 days are officially up, but let’s just say I’ve really been enjoying it. I was at work this afternoon literally counting down the hours until I could hit up my yoga mat for a serious sweat session – I think I’ve found new addiction. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I attended this evening’s class with my beautiful sister Kelly. It was nice to catch up with her before 15 minutes before class. I never get to see my sister – I miss her!

The class itself was a great. We started slow with some light stretching and then amped it up with a lot of fast paced flows. The class was quick and painless. The worst part was the pigeon pose we held on each leg at the end of class. Pigeon pose gets me every time! My IT bands are tight and holding pigeon for so long always leaves me close to tears.

Before class I had a Simply Harvest Quaker Bar.

I had a great idea for dinner tonight – Nut Butter Crusted Sweet Potatoes

I followed the Nut Butter Crusted Fries recipe, only in place of the parsnip or carrot I used sweet potato cubes and smothered it in bbq sauce. I was in heaven. Just as I had imagined the nu butter coating worked beautifully with the natural sweetness of the sweet potato.

I wonder what I should try next with the nut butter crust? Okra? Yucca? Rutabaga? Eggplant? The sky’s the limit!

My plate needed something green. Enter steamed snap peas.

Please excuse the poor quality of photos. I was starving and the plate looked too good to wait. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a couple pieces of fun size chocolate for dessert.

I can barely keep my eyes open – time for bed!

Good night!

A Mini Q&A

May 24, 2010

Half of Monday done! Bring on part 2! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Iโ€™ve realized that all of my snacks have been very CARB based lately. I want to try and break myself of relying on such heavy doses of carbs for snacks and try to work in some protein, fresh veggies, and healthy fats into my routine as more ยป
