I LOVED hearing about your healthy adaptations! Keep ’em coming–you have a few more hours to go! I will pick the winner randomly at 10 pm eastern time tonight.
I hope you also enjoyed the “Red Wine For Newbies” post. I had a lot of fun writing it! I do love me some red wine….I can’t believe I actually used to HATE it! Paris changed my life 🙂
This morning before lunch I did Dave Farmar’s latest 75 minute power vinyasa podcast. It was truly a wonderful experience. I find when I am anxious or stressed out, I NEED yoga. Not running, not weights….yoga. Only yoga has the capability to force me to quiet my mind and just concentrate at the posture at hand. Today I felt myself stretched from the inside out and afterwards I was like a bowl of jello! I think last week I sort of over-ran myself by running four times. This week I am paying for it with my right shin a little sore. I’m laying low and only running twice. I did a short run on Sunday and I’ll do a long run Friday morning. The rest of the time I’m going to focus on yoga to calm myself and prepare for the weekend.
After yoga was lunch!
I made myself a little meze platter with some leftover Middle Eastern salad, hummus, whole wheat pita and shrimp! I mixed everything together and the combo was perfect.
While I ate, I chatted on the phone with the Tampa Tribune! Looks like my little Murphy-Goode story will be in the Sunday paper! Eek!
Got a bunch done this afternoon and mid-afternoon took a snack break. Am I ever happy I did! I FINALLY got around to making Miss Gena’s raw banana soft serve, which has totally taken the blog world by storm and apparently I’m a little late in the game. Gena, you DID change my life–thank you!!! It was so easy too—all I did was combine 2 frozen bananas in the VitaMix and after only about 30 seconds, I had soft serve! I divided my “ice cream” into two so I could have some to enjoy later and then I topped my portion with raw almond butter. Now if this ain’t a sundae, I don’t know what is!
Now THAT was good!!! 🙂
Speaking of GOODE, I headed to my parent’s house to say hi around 4:30. They surprised me with a bottle of good luck Murphy-Goode Chardonnay-nay!!!
