Hey friends! Time for me to play major catch up. I have been MIA all day – today flew by! Jon and I pulled our usual stunt by falling asleep on the couch last night and waking up at 2 am with cricks in our necks. lol. Off to bed we went, where our smart little pup was already curled up in a tight little ball fast asleep. She looked at us like a mother looks at her teenager coming in past curfew.
Because of our late night shenanigans, we slept in until about 10:30. When I woke up, ma belly was calling for some food!
Peach flavored soy yogurt hiding under raw oats, sliced almonds, dried cranberries and Puffins! This was my first time to try the peach, and it was a win! It even had little slivers of peach in it. Yum!
One of my biggest struggles with going vegan has been giving up Greek yogurt. I’m a big fan of plain yogurt, and I cannot find plain flavored soy yogurt in our little city:( Last week I did sneak in a few servings of plain Greek yogurt and it was heaven. Oh, how I miss it.
After paying some bills and other adult like tasks, we headed to the gym. I did about 2.5 miles running/walking, but mostly running. I have currently misplaced my iPod (boo!), so I watched a documentary about conjoined twins, which was rather interesting….and impressive. It definitely served as a great distraction!
Lunch couldn’t come fast enough after we got home because it was already 2:30! I threw together a black bean burger pita.
whole wheat pita, hummus, Morningstar black bean burger, spinach, broccoli slaw crunch!, onions, pickles, ground red pepper, tobasco sauce!
After lunch, I piddled around the house a bit more and finally made it to my yoga mat. I did this youtube yoga series that I mentioned in yesterday’s post. I really enjoyed this one. I practiced a couple of poses I’ve never done before + I liked the way she flowed through the poses at a fairly quick pace. I still have so much to learn, but the more I learn the more I love I do have to say that today was nothing like participating in a yoga class, unfortunately. Oh how I wanted it to be at least almost as good, but it just wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was worth doing, and I definitely appreciated it for what it was, but it just wasn’t anything compared to being in a live class. Surprise, surprise, right?
The rest of our night was spent hanging out with these guys again
Ironically, this picture is recycled from last year; however, we did go to Orange Leaf tonight as well. It looks like somebody was also wearing the same shirt tonight (see below)…I’m not sayin’ any names;) Also, I may or may not have had yogurt the last three days in a row. *sheepish grin*
We also ate some din din of course.
I stuck with my old favorite – fajita pita with beans instead of meat, hold the sauce, add a side of salsa, steamed veggies instead of fries. poor waitress:)
The best part about them coming up is that they brought me these
My mom’s husband has a garden and they brought me fresh grown corn and green beans! I was just ranting to Jon this morning about how we don’t have a very good/extensive farmer’s market or any way to get homegrown veggies, aside from planting our own garden. Then lo and behold I got my own little delivery. yay!! These will definitely be hitting the blog this week. I’m super stoked!
Sleep, yoga, family and fresh veggies – doesn’t get much better!
I just noticed that some of my favorite meals/snacks have been quite elusive on the blog the last couple of days, so I’ll leave you with some tasty pics!
stir fried cauliflower, spinach, corn, peas in pesto sauce over brown rice – oooh, hot and steamy
smear of pb and sliced banana atop a Van’s whole grain lite waffle…truly blissful.
Friday night cheeseless veggie pizza (x3)
I hope everyone is having a rockin’ weekend! I’ll see you tomorrow!
Have you ever tried yoga? Why or why not? Do you think yoga has to become a lifestyle? Or do you think it can just be isolated physical activity?
Do you have any “at home” yoga that you love?
I would love to hear your thoughts!!!!
Oh, shoot. I almost forgot this! welcome to our home, little mobile
