Can’t Feel My Legs

Good afternoon!

Hope everyone’s Tuesday is going well. I loved hearing your Oregon Trail stories….I pretty much laughed all morning long. It was awesome. I loved one comment about the sad music coming on when “bad water” hit. bahahahaha g-times.

Snacked on some TJ’s trail mix for a morning snack:

And then went to my power bootcamp class at the studio. Seriously…this class totally kicks my booty every single time; it’s amazing! We warmed up with 12 sun salutations then did leaping squats, lunges, handstands, push-ups and side planks. By the end of the 45 minutes I couldn’t feel my low body any more…or my arms for that matter. Intense!
Rushed home to make a fast lunch (since I was STARVING!):


two high fiber tortillas filled with hummus, 4 egg whites + 1 yolk, lettuce and sriracha. Plus a juicy pear 🙂
I’m off to a meeting! Have a great rest of your day!

    That class sounds rough! But in a good way 🙂 Jumping squats, lunges, anything! makes me sore for days. I think I actually do remember that Oregon Trail game…

    Missed the Oregon Trail discussion. Personally, I thought that only kids in Oregon played that game! I’m delighted you all got to share in the joy of shooting beavers with the space bar.

    Oregon Trail! I didn’t know it existed anymore!!
    Your enthusiasm for yoga is contagious. I took a class in college but didn’t really get the whole mind/body connection. I’m trying it one more time starting tomorrow. . .although I’m hoping leaping squats won’t be part of beginner’s yoga 🙂

    I’m still trying to figure out what people do with the yolk when they only use the whites. Do you all just throw them away?

    Today I… practiced Yoga for 42min, went for a run and a walk. Can I feel my legs? Yes. But sometimes I’d wish I cut back on the run and forgo it.

    Hummus + eggs?? Hmm, I never would have thought of that one. Looks good though!

    Wow, I’d start to hate yoga with a class like that! Glad you like it!

    What kind of high fiber tortillas do you use? Can you buy them anywhere? Or are they a TJ’s or WF special item?

    Need to find and buy them!

    Oh man, plyometrics (like squats and jumps) are killer! There’s a class at my gym called SHRED and I always feel like jello afterwards. Love the egg wrap! I’ve been having scrambled egg whites with lots of srichacha sauce for breakfast – so good and spicy 🙂

    wow….that yoga class sounds like torture. I bet the payoff is well worth it, though. I used to be in a class that would take us through ENDLESS sit-ups and the entire time the instructor would be joking about how tight our abs would be. Made it a little easier, lol.

    I need to get on this egg wrap bandwagon that’s been sweeping the food blog world. Seems like such a powerful and delicious meal!

    Your intense bootcamp yoga sounds powerful as well! Congrats on keeping it up!

    This is my first comment…omg…I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love it. Your lunch looks very tasty, for some reason though everytime I eat eggs they fill me up to the max. Does anyone else have the same problem? I try to eat them after a workout or on days when I don’t workout, just so I can get them in to my diet.

      I’m writing a memoir of my time in culinary school and france with recipes! It’ll be found in the cookbook section of B&N but will be more of the type of book you bring to bed with you to read at night and will be on the shelves a year from right now! 🙂
