Last Official Rest Day

This morning, I slept in until just before 7am because I have no work, and it is my final rest day before the race.  It sure felt good not waking up in the 5am hour, even if I am a morning person 😉

Here is the yoga move for the day:

The Eagle

 

 

The benefits of Eagle are improved balance, strengthening of feet ankles, calves, and thighs, opening of the shoulders, chest, back, and hips, improving digestion and circulation, and stimulating the pituitary and thyroid glands.

 

 

 

 

I then showered, and made myself a coffee smoothie to super charge me for the day.  

Today’s list includes

  • Grocery Shopping
  • Making a cake
  • Teaching Brian to make burgers for my parents
  • Laundry
  • Dishes
  • Calling the bank and asking some questions
  • Call the tailoring people about my bridesmaid dress
  • Calling the loan people about student loan questions
  • Pre-registering for the race tomorrow
  • Eating dinner and hanging out with my parents
  • GOING TO BED SUPER EARLY
Let’s start crossing things off!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coffee Makes Me Happy

Posted on

Good Morning!

Last night, I had planned to work out this morning before starting my day (it’s like my morning cup of coffee), but I was upset (upset is a strong word to use) because I was going to workout in the  morning, shower then put more workout clothes on so that I could go to yoga later in the afternoon…I think it’s normal to want to wear regular clothes.  Well, being the problem solver that he is, Brian suggested doing some cardio either right before or right after yoga!  *GENIUS!*  I always make situations more difficult than they need to be…

Breakfast

For breakfast, I had yet another smoothie bowl, but today, it was chocolate covered strawberry!

In the mix:

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1/2 packet of Swiss Miss diet cocoa
  • 2 packets of splenda
  • splash of vanilla
  • pinch of xanthum gum
  • ice cubes and water for thickening
I also had a cup of Butter Toffee coffee from the Keurig the house I am dog sitting has…aka I will be bouncin’ off the wall!!!
Off to have another productive day and check more things off the list!
