I went to yoga today, incase you didn’t know.
It was a moderate/vigorous vinyasa flow class. I love yoga, don’t get me wrong, but I am the LEAST flexible person (other then the 57 year old guy coming from his desk job) in the room. I got to class with a lot of energy, feeling like today was my day for some breakthrough of sorts-even though I only go twice a week- instead the bar was just raised a bit higher.
Yoga isn’t supposed to be about what you can or can’t do in the class- it’s more about being there and taking a step forwards to something new. I, however, don’t want to step; I want to leap, or bound or maybe even fly there. Turns out that didn’t happen for me today. I can’t even point my toes while in some crazy lunge to fling myself back into plank. That just wasn’t going to happen. I can imagine how it feels though (good) to be able to do something like that. I’ve never been able to do the splits- my physio says I will never be able to do the splits; but the yoga teacher seems to think I could do them in the air with practice.
Needless to say I will believe the yoga teacher. And I will keep trying to touch my palms to the ground with straight legs (or my toes comfortably for that matter) and hopefully, I’m praying that I will be able to do the splits.
I will email you all a photo when that happens.
As I’m following a “strict” marathon plan- yoga was all I did today, tomorrow we’ve got a crazy hill workout that I’m sure I will brag about when it’s all said in done.
Onto the eats:
Lunch today was a spinach salad with olive oil and balsamic dressing, orange, and 2 corn thin sammies.
Although the Larabar is in the photo, it didn’t get eaten. I got home early and was able to whip up a bowl of 1/3C goat yogurt, 1/3C bluebs, 2T rice crispies and 1T granola. It hit the spot.
I think adding those corn thins to my lunch made my day a whole lot less hungry- and maybe my body is finally, I don’t know (dramatic pause) adjusting?!
Dinner tonight was straight up delicious. I finally roasted my Kabocha squash and had probably about half of it (heaven), with a small can of tuna and some more spinach salad (topped with a bit of goat cheese, salsa and beans) and a small piece of my dad’s freshly made bead (something about fresh baking I cannot resist, not even a bite!).
