My unlimited 40 day pass at Orlando Power Yoga expired while I was on vacation this past week. Boooo…
I took advantage of the unlimited 40 day pass as a trial run for hot yoga. I’ve practiced yoga on and off for the past couple of years, but I’ve never taken any classes regularly. I was hoping a regular practice of hot yoga would be a fun new challenge for my body.
My goal was to take three classes a week and I was able to accomplish just that. 🙂 I’m not sure my body is any leaner or stronger, but my MIND is so much clearer! Hot yoga is the perfect way to de-stress after a long day at work. My body has also never felt so stretched and relaxed – I left each class feeling as if I just treated my body to a massage.
I feel more confident in my practice now and with my ability to hold poses. I never knew I would fall in love with yoga quite as much as I did, but I truly do love it! In fact, I loved it so much that I paid for 10 more classes tonight!
I would LOVE to invest in an unlimited monthly pass, but that option is a bit too rich for my blood at the moment. My new goal is one or two classes a week. 😉 I can’t wait to incorporate hot yoga into my upcoming marathon training schedule! My body is going to love me for it!
Before I left for yoga I had a Peanut Butter Z-Bar at work.
Something strange happened after yoga – I was actually starving by the time I got home! Usually hot yoga kills my hunger, but tonight I felt like it was adding fuel to the fire. Maybe it was the extra hard class we had this evening? Who knows.
I quickly got to work in the kitchen and produced something fabulous.
This my friends is what I like to call a Carrot, Spinach, & Cinnamon Peanut Butter Quesadilla. Sounds funny, tastes amazing.
The trick is to shred the carrot before adding it to the quesadilla. 😉
On the side left over steamed kale & apple from last night.
For dessert, a serving of vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips and strawberries.
I’m exhausted! Time for bed.
