Three for Three

Today was the third day in a row of trying a new form of exercise!

 

Tuesday: Swimming

Wednesday: Indoor cycling

Thursday: Yoga!

 

I just got back from a late yoga class with Ryan. This was only my third experience with yoga, and I have to say I kind of liked it!

 

 

A few months ago I tried yoga at another gym but never really got hooked. I am really energetic and have a hard time being focused, so yoga is a bit of a challenge just to stay on the mat. 😉

 

I did a pretty good job packing healthy food today. I tend to not pack enough, so I made sure to pack extra stuff just in case.

 

I started my morning with a blueberry bagel. One side with peanut butter, one with raspberry preserves

…along with a banana. Such a happy breakfast!

Lunch was a turkey and cheese sammie on an English muffin (with mustard!). It’s a nice change from plain ole’ bread.

To go with it, I had a cup of V8 Butternut Squash soup.

peanut butter pretzel CLIF mojo bar…

…and a juicy pear!

It was just the right amount of food to keep my energy levels up throughout the day. I didn’t even need coffee!

 

I made a light dinner since I knew that I would be heading to yoga in less than an hour. I whipped up a piece of grilled chicken and some steamed squash. Nothing fancy!

I’m now munching on some popcorn before I head to bed. I’ve been craving popcorn randomly for like a week now. I think I mentioned it to Meghann when we hung out last week, and I have been talking/thinking about it ever since. Weeeeeeeird.

 

It’s late. Good-night!

    I love popcorn as well. I especially love the popcorn at the movies, but it does not feel the same way about me! I always fell so sick after eating it. But it still makes me go back for more each time! I just can’t say no to that smell!

  13. It took me awhile to get into yoga too, I just can’t make myself keep going if I’m not completely focused! I’ve never been to an actual class though, one of my goals!
