Just What I Needed

by Meghann on May 10, 2012

I have a confession – not every yoga class is a good one. Some are just ok. The last class I attended at my new yoga studio (thanks to a Groupon deal!) was just ok. It didn’t have me dying to go back, which explains my two week absence.

However, tonight’s class? Tonight’s class was awesome. It was the same class, same time slot, but a different teacher. This teacher had a little more experience and kicked the class up a notch. It was a *warm* flow class, and by the end I was sweatin’ up a storm and becoming shaky in my poses. The whole class was just the post-marathon detox I needed. I sweated out all the toxins my body was holding onto and left the studio feeling like a whole new person.

The best part about the class was that my legs felt great. Sure, some poses were harder to hold than others, but it was a complete 180 from the yoga podcast I did Tuesday morning! I think I’m ready to attempt a run in the morning. :)

Before class, I had a handful of mixed nuts while working in Starbucks.

Not going to lie, I was very tempted when the Starbucks’ Frappuccino “Happy Hour” started (1/2 priced frappuccinos from 3-5 until the 13th) and the Starbucks was suddenly full of folks ordering very delicious looking frappucinos (I saw a few walk out with 4 or 5 of them!). But I stuck with my iced coffee. I figured Derek and I could get 1/2 priced fraps together on Saturday if I still wanted one then. ;)

After yoga class, I made a very quick stir fry with roasted bok choy for dinner.

Stir fry:

  • carrots
  • onion
  • snap peas
  • corn
  • tempeh
  • brown rice
  • peanuts
  • sesame oil
  • soy sauce

The boy choy was roasted at 400 for 20 minutes with some red pepper flakes and sesame oil. The results were delicious! The leaves reminded me of “kale chips” and sort of melted in your mouth.

I had some key lime cookies from a generic gift box for dessert.

I hear ya, Maddie. I’m ready for bed too.

How can a dog who sleep 8 hours a day be so ready for bed at 9:00pm? It boggles my mind! ;)

Good Night!

There are definitely some classes I take that I walk out of thinking “that was amazing” and other times I’m a little disappointed. I think it all depends on the instructor, the music, and my mood.

I would definitely like to take advantage of the half-priced frapaccuinos at Starbucks. It’s such a good deal! I think I will try to do that tomorrow. :) Thanks for the reminder.

I totally agree on yoga. I think it’s super important to find whatever style works best for you. It’s the only way you’ll ever really stick to it!
