Hi there. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Here is a look at the first part of mine in photos.
Somehow I lasted until 4 p.m. with NO COFFEE on Friday. I deserve a medal. I swung by Starbucks on my way to run errands and treated myself to a soy latte. First holiday cup of the season!
The main reason for the errands was to go to the Verizon store. I had to get a new iPhone. I was still using the iPhone 4 that I’ve had for two and a half years. I’ve dropped it so many times, replaced the screen and cracked it again. The phone had reached the point where I could only use the speakerphone feature to talk because the sensors and sound were messed up. So I forked over a hefty sum at Verizon but left with a shiny new iPhone 5. I decided to get black instead of white and accepted that even though it’s not the sexiest case ever, the Otterbox is the way to go for me right now given my track record. (If anyone knows of a sleeker case that actually helps with dropping, please let me know!) So far I’m pleased with the new iPhone. It’s super fast and the display is really clear and crisp. And you can’t beat the cloud back up. I had this thing up and running in 15 minutes like nothing had ever changed.
Dinner at a friend’s house on Friday night. Lots of delicious but healthy stuff…salad with homemade carrot ginger dressing (SO GOOD!), grilled steak, grilled chicken, creamed spinach, eggplant and roasted cauliflower. I had all this + double the meat and spinach.
I got up early on Saturday morning and was really productive before yoga. Breakfast was apple cinnamon oatmeal and coffee while I worked.
I had a great practice. We worked on handstands into vinyasa so I made a video. We also worked on handstand to flying splits and that was NOT video worthy! It was like handstand to right side flop. 😛
Lunch after class was a salad with mixed greens, smoked salmon, avocado, goat cheese, toasted pecans, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes with homemade honey dijon balsamic. Also, a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie sandwich from Whole Foods. I spent the next five hours planted in front of the computer working on a big project.
Speaking of sitting in front of the computer, it’s 70 and sunny here this afternoon so I’m off for a quick run. I’ll be back later with weekend part 2!
