Goodness gracious, yoga kicked my booty today!!!
I did about 50 minutes of a 75 minute Dave Farmar podcast (I did his latest one available on itunes) and then free flowed a bit on my own….landing some loooong half pigeons on both sides, shoulder stand, plow pose and three beautiful full wheels. The podcast was HARD though! It was definitely geared towards the more advanced, with short head stands incorporated all throughout the practice to break up the vinyasa. Those, coupled with plank push ups and fast paced sun salutations, made me sweat and burn for sure!
After yoga I showered, folded some clothes, caught up on some emails and then grabbed some dinner. My mom left another awesome meal in the slow cooker while she headed to work this afternoon!
This time it was a delicious and comforting spaghetti casserole out of the Southern Living Slow Cooker cookbook—
Now, my mom definitely lightened this recipe a LOT by using bison meat instead of “ground round” (ew), whole wheat spaghetti and low fat cheddar. It was awesome though!!! I had hefty serving along with a salad drizzled with some random lite blue cheese dressing found in the depths of the fridge:
I also had a few more bites of casserole standing over the slow cooker. Classy. And then I called my mom at work laughing because this dinner is SO not something she usually makes!! I told her that it was awesome and incredibly tasty but seemed exactly like something I would have eaten at my sorority house in Alabama!! Very heavy and comforting. We were both laughing at that but it’s true…we aren’t really “casserole people” down here. It just seems to heavy when its not very cold outside anyways! I actually would make this dinner again though for Ryan because I think he would love it. Very kid and guy friendly!
I don’t have a photo but I am totally about to go eat two small squares of organic milk chocolate with almonds downstairs while I make my tea. I am excited to get in bed and read!
See you tomorrow!
My post will be late because right after work I am going to Sarah’s house for bible study but, never fear, I will be back probably around 5:00 to give you the day’s recap! Hopefully I can get in a 2 mile run at some point as well tomorrow afternoon. My race is a week from Saturday!
