Yoga Love

by Meghann on July 29, 2010

Oh hot yoga, do you know how much I love you? Let me count the ways.

  1. I love how you bring me together with old friends. Ashley just happened to be attending the same class as I :)
  2. I love how no two classes are ever the same. Tonight’s class was slow and focused on strength and flexibility rather than vinyaysas and cardio. It was a welcomed change of pace.
  3. I love how you push me outside of my limits. Tonight I attempted poses I won’t even begin to pronounce.
  4. I love how awesome I feel after every class. I like to call it my ‘yoga massage’
  5. I love how no matter what I never feel insecure or ashamed in class. Anyone can do yoga. No one ever judges and no one ever cares. :)

My ten class yoga pass is on the verge of expiring in the next couple of weeks. With four classes left and two weeks to go, it looks like I’ll be stepping up my yoga game for now. You will see no complaints from me. I missed multiple yoga classes in a week. I would go every day if I could! :)

Before class I fueled up with a homemade trail mix of nuts, chocolates, and cereal.

I left yoga not really craving anything for dinner. Unlike running, yoga really suppresses my appetite. :/ I wasn’t very hungry, but it was after 8:00 and I knew I had to eat something.

After taking my time driving home, walking Maddie, and checking my mail I finally settled on left over Pei Wei for dinner.

The left overs needed soy sauce; unfortunately I was out of it. :( Sad day.

Ok, I lied. I was craving something for dinner – ice cream. But, I pushed the craving aside and had the left overs instead like the big girl that I am.

Ice cream isn’t for dinner silly – ice cream is for dessert! I had barely finished my dinner before I started pulling the ice cream out of the freezer. ;)

Vanilla ice cream topped with crumbled peanut butter pretzels and chocolate chips. mmm….. that hit the spot. :)

Tomorrow is Friday! And you know what? I have the whole weekend to myself!! What should I do with my free time?!?!?

What would you do if you had a weekend where you had no where to be and nothing to do? Would you spend the day in your underwear? Would you catch up on work? Would you bake a big cake and then eat it?

Wrap #Fail

July 29, 2010

Apparently there is a limit to how much La Tortilla Factory Wraps can hold. The contents: Left over roasted vegetables from last night <— perhaps too many veggies? Marinara Sauce Spinach Swiss Cheese Wrap #Fail Le sigh. I guess you can’t win them all? At least the ‘wrap’ was just as tasty when eaten with more »

A Mental Sport

July 29, 2010

Every time I take off on a morning run I am reminded why running is 100% a mental sport. It’s not about what my body can do anymore – I know I’ve got this – it’s about what my mind’s capability to handle it.   I had a tempo run on the schedule for this morning. more »
