I hope you guys had a good Monday. My eyes bolted awake at 5 a.m. and I could never get back to sleep. I decided to start my day on a mindful note and I did a guided morning meditation from my Insight Timer app.

The meditation included seven affirmations for the day, the last of which really stuck with me. It was to be impeccable with your word and to use your word to spread love and kindness, both in your internal and external dialogues. And also about the power of sometimes holding your word and listening instead. It reminded me a lot about the “be impeccable with your word” chapter in The Four Agreements and was just what I needed to ground me to kick off the week.

My day also ended on a lovely note with a sunset run. I know I’ve said it so many times this winter and I’m sorry to rub it in for those of you in cold, snowy places but we are having the mildest winter. I think I read today that it’s the 7th warmest winter on record. I ran in shorts and a tank top tonight and it was 65 degrees. I covered six miles and it was one of those runs that just felt so good.

Rewinding to the weekend, I totally failed on taking pictures.

Woodlands Indian Charlotte

I think it’s safe to say that the highlight of my weekend was getting a mani/pedi and then coming home and having the most delicious Indian feast delivered via Postmates (use my code EZ8IN for a free first delivery). We talked about going to to see a movie but when Tanner said there were some highly rated movies available on Amazon, I was like couch, PJs, wine and takeout…DONE.

Woodlands Indian Charlotte

Our food was from Woodlands. It’s a vegetarian Indian restaurant in Charlotte that is super highly rated. I’ve been wanting to try it for years. Tanner suggested Indian as we were scrolling through the Postmates app so we decided to give it a go. We both loved, loved, loved the food. We went with an appetizer sampler and the North Indian Thali which included two curries, dahl, halwa, raita, naan and rice with all sorts of delicious sauces. I really want to visit the restaurant and dine in next time!

FYI: we watched the movie Arrival and it was good but the ending was so confusing. It was one of those endings where you had to Google, “Arrival movie ending meaning.”

Berry Smoothie with Be Runa Seed Sweet

I also did a couple of berry-packed smoothies topped with Be Runa berry vanilla seed sweet.

And I can’t get enough of this carrot/butternut/apple/ginger soup. I will be sharing the recipe soon!

Salmon with shredded brussels sprouts and fried plantains

We ended the weekend with baked salmon, shredded brussels sprouts and plantains fried in coconut oil.

Off to eat dinner. We’re having leftover shepherd’s pie and I’m excited! 🙂

Favorite food to get takeout/delivery?

Have you seen a good movie lately?

A new weekly workout playlist for you + 15 of my favorite Spotify playlists + last week’s workouts

I spend a significant amount of time every week putting together playlists for my yoga classes. I'm a little crazy but I don't like to use the same playlists over and over. I find that keeping my music fresh keeps the class fresh for my regular students. Also, different classes have different vibes so I [...]
