Go With The Flow

Wonderful class this morning. It was a new class that the studio is offering called Yoga Grooves. It reminded me a lot of Shiva Rea’s style in that there is a lot of fluidity in the movement, almost like a dance. The actual poses were like those in a regular flow class but the twist was that the music was the star and was used to inspire movement. There were many times when we were able to flow freely doing whatever our bodies told us to do and to “go with the flow” of the music. She encourgaed us to get lost in the music and see what your body wants to do with it. I loved it. Flow always feels so graceful to me and takes me back to my days as a gymnast. I was a gymnast for 9 years and kept up with tumbling and cheerleading for 6 years after that..I was quite the little tumbler!

 

I could talk about that all day…but I won’t. I woke up a little later than I wanted so I made breakfast lighter than the normal oats. I had the remaining fage from yesterday with raspberries and honey and an Ezekiel English Muffin with ooey gooey Barney Butter and Pumpkin Butter:

Those are my favorite Christmas plates. We have had them for years. I have been known to use them at all times of the year 🙂

 

Post yoga I had an apple and some chocolate soy milk:

Hot Lunch

I couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen today. It had been WAY too long! Okay really only 2.5 weeks but it felt like an eternity!
We had some tempeh in the fridge that was waiting to be cooked. I whipped out my Veganomicon cookbook that I got recently and based my meal off of the Smoky Grilled Tempeh. I used most of what they called for but tweaked it a tiny bit with different spices and such.

I was very pleased! I have actually never had tempeh before and I really enjoyed it. The leftovers would be great in a sandwich. I also roasted some brussel sprouts (something else I had never tried) and sweet potato. Obviously, I was craving a hot meal!

 

On the side I had some fresh raspberries and fage with some granola:img_28091

 

 

Oh..and this little surprise was waiting for me on my bed when I got home:

My mom was trying to help them get their product into Publix and she sent us some samples and a t-shirt! Hopefully it will be coming to a store near you soon! I LOVE it!

 

Well, I’m off to run some errands with mama. Then I am going to flow yoga tonight with one of my favorite teachers! YAY!

Home Sweet Home

FINALLY! I’m home! In the last few hours at school, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. I got in around 9:30 last night and felt a huge wave of relief.

 

I fired up the BIG crockpot last night to ensure I would have a nice comforting breakfast in the morning. I had apple-cinnamon oats with Barney Butter and craisins.

YUMM.

Raleigh greeted me last night as she usually does by jumping all over the place. It’s a joyous reunion…sometimes she whimpers as if she is crying with joy. Or at least I like to think that. Makes me feel like a good “mom.”  🙂

 

My Mom and I are off to take her to the groomer. Her hair is so long you can barely see her face!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!
