So, after reading all your concerned emails and comments, I’m changing the rules of the challenge. Why? Because I can. You can do Bikram 5x a week if you want or you can just do regular yoga. I don’t want anyone to think I’m trying to push your body past your limit if you know heat is not for you…and it’s not for everyone. I’ve been practicing Bikram for 8 years now and, personally, I loooove the heat (I’m a Florida girl, remember?!) but I know some people respond to it differently…and it is very intense. So…no pressure! Do whatever you like, to the extent you want to take it.
This afternoon I snacked on some Oikos + kashi:
Santa came early and told me I could go to Macys and pick out new jeans so that’s what I did this afternoon. 🙂 Gosh…don’t you just LOVE new jeans?! Makes you feel so good. The last time I got new jeans was literally 3 1/2 years ago so these feel especially lovely on my boo-tay. I took a 45 minute walk when I got home to “break ’em in”.
For dinner I made a quick and easy salad with edamame, corn and quinoa. Basically, I took the recipe out of Veganomicon and added cooked quinoa to it. It’s one of my favorites!
Uhhh yeah, there might have been more kabocha involved as well.
And dessert was more HEAB
ice cream! Although, I’m calling this a milkshake, Heather.
I used 1 scoop Jay Robb, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 tsp xanthan gum, pinch sea salt, cinnamon, squirt of honey and ice. Topped it with pom seeds and dark chocolate chips!
Tried to photo the toppings as they sunk into my masterpiece….
Unfortunately I have a major migraine right now. I thought I left my chronic migraines behind on the east coast but apparently not. This is actually my first migraine in months….I used to get them ALL THE TIME during college but haven’t had one since last Spring. I used to take prescription migraine meds (Imitrex) but stopped last year because of how crappy and sick they made me feel. Now, if I get the migraine during the day I’ll take excedrin migraine but if I get it at night (now), I just have to battle it out with ice and massage because I cannot take a caffeine pill right about now. And, no, my headache is not from Bikram yoga. I’ve been migraine plagued since I was 12 (runs in my family) and have a knot the size of Texas on the back of my neck right now, which is causing a wee bit of tension.
