Good afternoon! Sorry this post is a wee bit late but Wednesdays are my yoga days and, wow, did I ever need it. Before I left though I was able to crank out a new True/Slant article—this time on my personal experience with finding a healthy balance. Good stuff!
In preparation for a late lunch and rigorous practice, I snacked on a broken piece of an Uncle Kracker + babybel cheese—
I ate this snack around 11. I still was pretty full from my waffle but knew I would starving if I didn’t have anything. Yoga was from 12-1:30 and was awesomeeeeee. Jen, the instructor, blasted some awesome music (everything from funky rap to Amos Lee) and we just flowed. My legs are totally going to be hurting tomorrow from her “standing leg series” (warrior three to half moon to revolved half moon back to half moon to dancer to standing splits to regular splits WOWZA) but the long savasana at the end was worth all the sweat.
I got home around 1:45 and busted into a new lunch I found buried within the black hole of my pantry:
How interesting! I was totally intrigued by this a few months back and bought it, only to have it disappear behind countless bags of flour and sugar. I sort of struggled as to thinking what I could fill the sushi with but then remembered rotisserie chicken + hot sauce + avocado!
So basically you “steam” the rice in the microwave (or on the stove if you are super cool and don’t own a microwave like me) and then you take the little nori wraps and put some rice in them with your choice of fillings. Mine were a tad bit messy but did the trick! It was a nice break from my usual salad or sandwich and I love the taste of nori!
With soy sauce (and hot sauce!) for dipping —
And to top it all off, another extra juicy peach!
I thoroughly enjoyed myself, clearly.
I love Yoga Wednesdays but it really does act as a full day activity. When I checked my Blackberry after class I saw I had 40 new emails (!!) and countless things to catch up on. Here I goooo!
