Unlimited? or not

by Meghann on August 2, 2010

It’s Monday night! You know what that means? That means I am currently riding a post hot yoga high. Love it. 🙂

Nothing beats hot yoga after a weekend of running. Nothing.

Before class I had the last carrot cake scuffin I made over the weekend.

Hot yoga was once again fabulous tonight.

What I love the most about our instructor, Kelly, is how she tells stories while we flow from one pose to the next. My mind zeros in on her voice and zones out everything else. All the worries and stress from the day seem to melt away as my mind empties to nothingness. As my mind relaxes, my muscles begin to follow suit and before I know it the eighty minutes are up and I’m lying in savasana.

Kelly informed me tonight that she’s running a $75 unlimited monthly special (it’s normally $100). I’m debating suspending my gym membership for the time being and doing the unlimited yoga. Now that I’m focusing on marathon training I haven’t been able to go to the gym as much as I want to and honestly I would rather have those funds go to yoga instead. Tempting – very tempting.

What do you think – gym membership or unlimited hot yoga?

Dinner tonight featured a tray of roasted okra and carrot fries.

Actually, they were only part of dinner, but they were my favorite. 🙂

The okra and carrot fries were joined by tempeh fries and a slice of creamy mozzarella.

The mozzarella was a lat minute addition to the plate, but I really think it brought everything together. A nice cold bite of cheese between the warm bites of the fries really please the palette.

BBQ Sauce and Ketchup were my sauces of choice for the evening.

If you close your eyes tempeh fries taste almost like chicken fries. Almost.

My evening ended with half of a Patriotic Blondie from the freezer.

Does anyone ever watch The Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Network? I’ve never seen it before tonight, but so far I’ve watched two episodes in the last hour and I love it. I’m now drooling over my keyboard and suddenly inspired to drive all over the country trying all these places!

I wonder if I were to contribute to an episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate what I would feature. Hmmm… something to think about…

good night!

The Color of the Day is Brown

August 2, 2010

My lunches typically fall into a color them of sorts. Some days they’re green, other days they’re orange, and sometimes they’re all the colors of the rainbow. Today my lunch was brown. At least it’s a pretty brown? I debated adding something green or red to spruce up the colors a little, but this was more »

August

August 2, 2010

Did you know it’s the first week of August already? One of my favorite things about each new month is flipping the calendar to the next set of photos I will be staring at for the next thirty days. I love my personalized calendar because it automatically sets fun memorable photos into rotation at my more »
