Yesterday, I spent about 40 minutes doing my own yoga sequence while listening to the Away We Go soundtrack (anyone else obsessed with Alexi Murdoch?) outside in the warm sunshine. The time went by so fast, and I felt so rejuvenated afterwards even though I toppled over in Standing Bow…however, I nailed Half Moon. After a week of no yoga, I am really feeling all those Sun Salutations today. My hammies are screaming at me.
The local natural foods store wasn’t a total bust:
I found my unsweetened almond milk, blue tortilla chips, and red pepper hummus, but the Annie’s dressing that CD requested was covered with dust and had expired in 2008. Gross.
Lunch was crunchy and delicious:
This salad warmed my heart and my belly. I topped some romaine with grape tomatoes, chopped yellow bell pepper, raw corn, spinach massaged with lemon juice, stevia, and 1/2 avocado, hummus, and blue tortilla chips.
Dinner was very un-Heather like, but I was really craving breakfast foods…
Two eggs, sunny-side up with some turkey bacon and a big chocolate rice protein pancake smothered in crunchy almond butter. Darn tasty my friends. However, as y’all know, I usually end my evening with a bowl of carbs, aka oat bran. Well, I’m trying to back off the grains a bit as I’ve been feeling the oat bloat lately. I’m not cutting them out completely as oat bran is one of my most favorite foods ever, but I think 2 huge bowls every day was a bit much. Anyway, I woke up starving at 1 AM and proceeded to eat an entire bag of frozen cherries. They tasted so good and made me really cold. Afterwards, I curled up under the comforter and slept like a baby. Anyone else need carbs before going to bed?
Today, I think I will attempt to hike up the little mountain behind the house where we’re staying:
