I’m sorry for the delay in my post but I was at yoga until 2 and then have been working on a new page for yall ever since!
It was brought to my attention that I never really shared how I got so into yoga in the first place and it might be important for some people to hear, so if you want, you can read the whole story here (or just click on the link on the above banner). 🙂
Anyways, before I went to yoga I snacked on two dates stuffed with peanut butter. YUMMY!
Yoga was AWESOME today. It was a power class and, man, was it powerful. The class was packed and quite warm, and I could just feel every muscle in my body quivering as I got into each pose and stayed there for, what felt like, way too long. By the end of class I was drenched in sweat and my body felt like jelly.
When I got home I ate exactly what I was craving—-yogurt and granola 🙂
This is a mix of a fage 0%, 1/2 cup peanut butter granola, a sprinkle of cracklin’ oat bran (!!) and a sliced banana. Perfecto.
Then I packed my dinner for tonight since we were told to bring our own food! I packed a cute little turkey pinwheel wrap with boar’s head turkey, provolone cheese and dijon mustard—-
Some grapies and a square of chocolate—-
And a yogurt for a snack later since I won’t get home until around 11:15!
This is some new yogurt that the guy at Greenwise talked me into trying. He says its awesome so we shall see! I’ll let you know what I think….I tend to be a yogurt snob sometimes. 😉
I won’t be back tonight since I get home so late and have to be up at 6:45 for my surgery in the morning. But, I promise to catch up on all my emails and questions tomorrow when all I have to do is lay in bed and recover. Sorry for the delay!
I hope everyone has a wonderful evening and I will see you tomorrow when I get home from the dreaded dentist! Blah!!

Good luck with the surgery tomorrow – and orientation tonight!
VeggieGirlJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:33 pm
No worries about the post delay!! Doing yoga and eating PB-stuffed dates is well worth it 😀
Best of luck with the surgery!!
RebeccaJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:37 pm
Yummy! Dates stuffed with peanut butter, sounds good!
KJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:38 pm
Good luck tonight and tomorrow – wishing you a SPEEDY recovery! I’m impressed with your wrap skills! I just mush mine all together, I don’t think it would look nearly as nice as yours cut in half 🙂
Jenna 2January 7, 2009 at 2:40 pm
where do you get your dates? and what section of the grocery store do you find them (weird random ? i know) but I have never had them before *gasp* I can’t find them any where in my grocery store. Thanks for the new page!
KarmenJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:45 pm
Mmmm now I’m craving PB! I haven’t had dates in a while, but those sound super yummy too!
After all this talk of yoga, you’ve got me thinking of trying it again =) Maybe my attention span has grown and I can hang in there!
Don’t know about the yogurt, but that is one very.cute.cow.
BridgetJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:53 pm
Good Luck tomorrow!! I hope everything goes smoothly 🙂 Have fun at orientation tonight! The yoga story is awesome, thanks for sharing.
SharonJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:53 pm
Wow, awesome job with the yoga! And great eats!
MarissaJanuary 7, 2009 at 2:57 pm
Yay for yogurt and granola!
FrustratedJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:07 pm
HELP! Lately I have been in this frustrating cylce where I can’t stop eating at night. It starts with what I think will just be some ice cream and turns into cookies, candy, granola bars, etc. I eat until I’m so full and hurting. Then I go for a few days where I’m fine. Has anyone experienced this and if so how did you overcome it?
DanielleJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:11 pm
Good Luck with your surgery tomorrow. Hope you have a speedy recovery!
seelivelee (for the love of peanut butter)January 7, 2009 at 3:16 pm
GOOD LUCK JENNA!!!
MelJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:41 pm
Good luck with orientation and your surgery tomorrow!
yolieJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:42 pm
Best wishes for tomorrow, Jenna… Like you said, this is a great excuse to play with your vitamix and create some wholesome and delicious concoctions! 😛 Hope it all goes okay – as I’m sure it will xyx
MaggieJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:45 pm
What kind of yogurt did you eat in France? I’ve recently been hooked on this really good whole milk yogurt from TJ’s. It’s so creamy!
Allison K.January 7, 2009 at 3:50 pm
That Yogurt looks Yum!
ShelbyJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:55 pm
AshleyJanuary 7, 2009 at 3:57 pm
Good Luck in your surgery!
KateJanuary 7, 2009 at 4:32 pm
Mmmm… Cracklin’ Oat Bran is an old favorite of mine. You might have just inspired me to have some again sometime. xD
This probobly sounds repetitive by now, but, good luck!
SerenaJanuary 7, 2009 at 4:40 pm
Jenna, Good luck with your surgery tomorrow. I enjoyed your yoga story. I am starting to think that you might need to consider a new name for the blog – the ‘run’ part doesn’t seem as relevant now like yoga is. What about “Eat, Live, Om” or “Eat, Live, Breathe”? Just a thought – I know you’ve had the blog for a while and the name is great as is, but something yoga-inspired seems to fit your personality so much better!
Fit MommyJanuary 7, 2009 at 4:43 pm
Love yoga. Wish I could go more. Dates with PB sounds awesome too. Have yet to find fresh dates locally. Will look for them though.
Sarah (lovINmytummy)January 7, 2009 at 4:56 pm
Good luck with the surgery (and early wake up!). Happy to see the Cracklin’ Oat Bran. It is aptly named CRACK-lin’ Oat Bran. A box doesn’t last long in my house =)
KateJanuary 7, 2009 at 5:00 pm
I just had to say Good Luck Jenna! You’re sweet but I’m sure you’re touch enough to handle it:)
Oh She GlowsJanuary 7, 2009 at 5:11 pm
I am so excited to read your yoga story….going there now!
Goodluck at the dentist.
Justy2003January 7, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Good luck with the dental surgery tomorrow! Hope it’ll be a fast recovery! Enjoy the solid food while you can! 🙂
Sarah (now in FL)January 7, 2009 at 5:41 pm
That’s a good yogurt brand but I don’t like the mango flavor. It’s locally made–they have an awesome plain and strawberry. The husband and I got to try all of the flavors at Whole Foods one day when the yogurt maker and her friend were sampling all of the flavors. I hope you enjoy it! Cool yoga page, too.
MaraJanuary 7, 2009 at 5:44 pm
Those dates and your wrap look fantastic!
AlexiaJanuary 7, 2009 at 7:19 pm
WOW! What a yoga story! I know it takes a lot and open up like that for the world to see. I know you inspire others as well as myself.
Good luck tomorrow with your surgery and I hope you get better soon!
gina (fitnessista)January 7, 2009 at 7:20 pm
i’ll be thinking about you tomorrow- i hope the surgery and recovery go perfectly
so glad you added the yoga story page. you’re motivating me to get more into it 😀 if i can ever do a headstand like that, i’ll be a happy kid
have a great night!
KimberlyJanuary 7, 2009 at 8:37 pm
Good luck tomorrow!! I, too, have receding gums, and will have to get skin-grafting eventually. Hope you get to enjoy a couple of days of DVDs and being spoiled by the parents!
MegJanuary 7, 2009 at 9:08 pm
Hope the surgery goes well and that the recovery is fast!
zestycookJanuary 8, 2009 at 6:24 am
Jenna, Good luck! I hope everything goes well!
StaceyJanuary 8, 2009 at 7:40 am
Good luck Jenna! At least its a reason to lay in bed 🙂
CarolynJanuary 8, 2009 at 8:17 am
The story of how you cam to yoga is fantastic. I really enjoyed it.
I have just recently started taking beginner classes and it’s amazing how my day can totally turn around after that 50 min class. It’s wonderful.
I just stumbled onto your blog this morning and have spent the last hour reading! You have an extremely motivational website here and it’s very enjoyable to read!
LauraECUJanuary 8, 2009 at 8:49 am
Hey Jenna! I have a question about yoga for you. I’m really interested in starting to practice it, but I have minimal experience with it. I’ve only done a yoga for abs video that I bought several years ago. I know that there are many different types of yoga, but which is the best type for a beginner to start with? Also, would just doing a video be okay starting out, or do you think it is better to actually go to a class at a gym? What is/are the best book(s) to read about to learn about each type of yoga? Thanks for your help!
leadingladylisJanuary 8, 2009 at 9:09 am
Hey Jenna- thanks so much for the inspiration! I signed up for my first ever yoga class and had my first class this morning! It was early and I thought I’d be dead tired but I had a wonderful experience. You can read about it on my blog (I mention you as my yoga inspiration)!
I know you put a lot of effort into keeping up this blog and I just wanted to let you know that you’ve inspired at least one person- me! (though I know you inspire many others also) My new yoga class lasts until mid April and I’m so excited- I’ll keep you updated on my progress!
lauraJanuary 8, 2009 at 10:18 am
