Evening and happy Monday night! Well, somehow it’s now Tuesday morning… it’s been a pretty long day, but luckily I got my morning “nap” in. From your comments, it seems like you all understand the need to take breaks from blogging… thanks, as always, for your patience and support. I love you guys!
I got to the gym just in time for an hour-long Vinyasa yoga class. I hadn’t been to an actual class (I’ve just been doing Yoga Downloads) in more than six months, so I was a little nervous. It turns out I’m in better yogic shape than I thought, although there are still some things I can’t do (like Crow), but I really liked being back in a class setting with other students and a helpful instructor. My schedule is a little inconsinstent right now, but hopefully I’ll be able to go at least once a week. I’m going to be totally crazy and challenge myself: I will be able to do Crow Pose by the end of the summer!
I packed up leftovers from dinner last night: 1/2 Ahi tuna wrap with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and ginger wasabi mayo. (In the future I’ll ask for it without the mayo… I really didn’t need it, and it just ended up making a big mess.) I also had an apple, which I ate before yoga.
I played with my Greg for a little after leaving the gym, and he kindly used his precious Starbucks card to buy me a Tall Caramel light Frappuccino (only 130 calories!). I still didn’t have my camera charged at this point, but rest assured that I sucked down every last sweet drop.
I was still feeling snacky when I got home, so I had an apple. I couldn’t decide which kind of nut butter I wanted, so why choose? I had cashew, almond, and peanut butters smeared on top. Mmm!
Ari decided he wanted to go to Panera Bread before going to see Up. I’d never been to Panera before, but I was impressed with the lighter vegetarian options that were offered (a rarity, as I’m sure you’re aware, for chain restaurants).
I got the soup/sandwich combo, so I had a cup of chandelier garden vegetable soup:
Veggie sandwich with feta and cilantro hummus on sundried tomato bread. The bread made this sandwich… it was so thick and fluffy!
Ari’s turkey sandwich had mayo all over it (a banned “white and creamy” food) so I gave him my apple. I’d already had two for the day, so it wasn’t much of a sacrifice.
I was craving chocolate, and we were in the no-man’s land around the movie theater. There were no delis, but there was a Starbucks! Lucky for me, because not only did I find my dark chocolate, but they were giving away samples of lemon pound cake! Who can turn that down?
Up was one of the best movies I’ve seen in the last few years. It was smart, funny, and surprisingly dark! (Have you noticed that “kids” movies seem to be made more for adults recently? Maybe they’ve always been like that and I’m just now picking up on it.) See it!
Time to get in bed and watch Heroes. Hope you had a nice day! Bonne nuit 🙂
