Hope your Tuesday is going well. We just got back from Bikram and it was HOT. 🙂 My mom actually practices Bikram at home pretty regularly so she knew what was comin’ for her, but she swore this studio (an actual Bikram College of India studio) was waaay hotter than our studio in Tampa. I didn’t disagree! Drank a toooooooon of water.
Once home, I made a quick lunch:
A toasted Ezekiel muffin with 4 egg whites, smear of hummus, morningstar farms soysage, 1/4th of an avocado and HOT SAUCE! I also had an unpictured apple after.
…..And I’m off. Hope y’all have a great day!

that lunch looks amazing!
Lauren @ louisianagrownDecember 22, 2009 at 12:15 pm
Hot sauce on eggs = perfection. I have an egg sandwich with Crystal on it almost every single morning.

Eggs, hot sauce, and avocado on Ezekiel bread is such a great combo! Plenty ‘o protein, carbs, and delicious-ness. Yay!

Casey @ Spicy&Sweet)December 22, 2009 at 12:42 pm
I really need to try Bikram yoga…I never feel like my workout counts unless I get really, really sweaty :).
Christie @ Honoring HealthDecember 22, 2009 at 12:50 pm
At first glance, those eggs looked like blue cheese!
Enjoy the day with your mom!
ChristinDecember 22, 2009 at 12:56 pm
Can anyone help me out? How does one practice Bikram at home? I’m not even sure what Bikram is but there’s a hot Bikram class in my town that I want to try, but I’m scared to go without some practice first. 🙂 Any suggestions??

After reading about your experiences with Bikram, I’m going to have to give this yoga practice a go. Your protein muffin looks so satisfying and delish!

Bikeram sounds so rejuvenating, I def would like to try it 🙂
KDecember 22, 2009 at 4:39 pm
Hi I have been reading your blog for a while and see that you’ve started practicing Bikram regularly! I found it about ~4 months ago and have been practicing 6-9x a week (doubles!), it has really changed my body composition and helped my running (my legs are really strong from standing head to knee!) and my core is more defined….and I noticed more tone in my arms so I guess it works those too…anyway I think it’s great that you love it, I have a hard time convincing people to go with me!
Madelin @ What is for Breakfast?December 22, 2009 at 4:40 pm
Well done on keeping up with your yoga every day!!! Very impressive 🙂
JennaDecember 22, 2009 at 4:40 pm
glad you both enjoyed bikesm class!
Lunch looks delish!
IrisDecember 22, 2009 at 4:51 pm
Looks like a delicious lunch!
Cynthia (It All Changes)December 22, 2009 at 4:57 pm
I’ve only ever been to a Bikram Studio once but I can’t wait to try it again in the new year.
eatmoveloveDecember 22, 2009 at 5:41 pm
I’ve only ever been to two Birkram classes…I don’t have much time (or money) now…but I found it to be slow actually? Which is good – and definitely perfect for me now 🙂 as I tend to prefer sitting and stretching …;) – oye – …but it definitely takes discipline to stay with it and I like that it goes from standing to back to twists…not held for very long either. There also aren’t any sun salutations…so it’s a good way to get to ‘know’ and practice the basic postures…which I still fall out of and my hips do not twist in the last one.
Christin – Bikram isn’t just about being in a Hot room – it follows a set 26 postures that are run through twice..so essentially the class is always the same no matter where you go. Some instructors can be very ‘militant’ about it – no emotion, etc. I don’t know…
Meanwhile, it does nothing to make me more aware of my mindless eating…I’m stuffed and still consuming…
Paige@ RunningAroundNormalDecember 22, 2009 at 6:23 pm
Hotter than Florida Bikram?! That just doesn’t seem right! 😉
That egg sammie looks delish!
Adi (oatonomy.com)December 22, 2009 at 7:03 pm
Tasty looking little lunch!
Emily Eats and ExercisesDecember 22, 2009 at 7:36 pm
That sounds like a great lunch – and I think I have all the ingredients at home! Perhaps tomorrow, I’ll recreate your idea…
Does your ankle bother you at all during your yoga practice?
kristi (sweet cheeks)December 22, 2009 at 7:47 pm
Bikram!! I still definitely need to take one of those classes!
JannaDecember 22, 2009 at 7:52 pm
I used to do hot yoga so much more. I need to get back into it! I miss the heeeat!
Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca)December 22, 2009 at 10:46 pm
I love that you even put the hot sauce on the avocado 🙂 Yumm!
JennyDecember 23, 2009 at 6:50 am
Bikram sounds intense! Glad you could enjoy a class with your mom 🙂
Amber@theminimalistdiariesDecember 23, 2009 at 11:45 am
I am still nervous to try Bikram! We have pretty much the same deal at our local Bikram studio and I know I should take advantage. How are those morningstar sausages? I’ve been looking for a veggie sausage replacement for my Christmas stuffing and was thinking about using those…
