Thank you for being nice and understanding readers regarding my grammar issues the other night. 🙂
I think the biggest news of the day is that I continued my no running streak. I have not run in 10 days. TEN DAYS! I planned on running this evening but when Sarah g-chatted me asking if I was interested in yoga tonight I caved. I honestly do miss running but it’s hard to motivate myself to run in the dark cold after working late (clearly, I need to be reminded of my Cold Weather Running post!) and I can’t run on the weekends because I’ve been in teacher training.
Honestly, I’m not stressing about it though because I made the decision to focus on yoga and pursue teacher training and I feel great right now. There will be plenty of time to ramp up the running again this spring after training is over with the added bonus of longer days and pleasant temperatures. Do any of you ever take breaks from running? How do you deal with it?
Moving along. Lunch time.
Veggie burger salad and gorgonzola herb focaccia.
Baby spinach, mixed baby greens, carrots, avocado, dried cranberries, goat cheese and a quick vinaigrette made with honey, balsamic and olive oil. Topped with a Trader Joe’s veggie burger.
I had an apple, almonds and hot tea at work this afternoon as a snack. I left work on time (yay) and headed to Yoga One tonight to meet Sarah for a 90 minute hot vinyasa class. It was great – I enjoy Yoga One, the classes are extra hot and sweaty.
Dinner tonight was on my own because Brandon was out. No husband = no meat.
Red quinoa with onions, garlic, garbanzo beans, kalamata olives and sundried tomatoes. Served on a bed of spinach and topped with feta and plain Greek yogurt. It’s been far too long since I’ve had a quinoa bowl for dinner. Yum!
And I leave you with another yoga video. I have been working really hard on my backbend series in ashtanga. This video was taken Tuesday morning. It’s handstand to backbend to standing. This comes before the tick tock you saw last week. Once I get the series flowing a little better, I’ll post a longer video with the whole thing.
