Good morning and happy Monday, everyone!
Ahhh I wish I was headed to Tampa right now instead of headed to work but if I’ve made it this far I guess I can make it til tomorrow afternoon. Two more workdays to go!
I was so tired this morning that my alarm woke me up! I rarely set an alarm because I have this neurotic internal clock where I always, always, always wake up about 5 minutes before my alarm goes off. Even when I’m super tired. It’s weird. But this morning the alarm went off and I was like mid-dream and it just seemed like such a rude awakening! I turned the day around quick, however, when I did a 30 minute morning yoga class in my living room from yogadownloads. This time I tried “morning yoga #1” and it was really great. A wonderful way to start my day and I enjoyed it a hundred times more than going to the gym and being in such a constant rush! This class focused on body awakening back bends and had flow movements and vinysasas throughout. Even though it was only 30 minutes, I still feel like I got a good workout in and let me tell you, I am SO sore from doing yoga the past two days! My arms, my legs, my back…my biceps are sore from all the chatarungas and my back is sore from back bends. It feels wonderful! I am so incredibly happy that I found a way to get back into yoga when I don’t have enough time in my day to go to the studio. It’s such a blessing!
I didn’t eat anything before practicing this morning and that suited me just fine. Afterwards, however, I had the bowl of homemade muesli I put in the fridge last night. It had dried berries, banana, toasted almond slivers and agave in it. I also had a cup of black tea.
For lunch I decided to pack some baked beans I had made a couple weeks ago then put in the freezer. Baked beans freeze and unfreeze wonderfully and are super easy to pack along for lunch. I also packed a chunk of baguette and a peach. For a snack, I’m bringing a yogurt and the rest of the pretzel bag (which is not much but I didn’t just want to throw the crumbs!).
I feel so less stressed that I don’t have school tonight and I can come home after work and relax and unwind! I’m planning on pizza and a movie…
