Happy Wednesday my friends! How is this beautiful day treating y’all?
Oh, and for those of you living in the other hemisphere…Happy Thursday?
I seriously cannot thank you all enough for your responses and feedback on my job interview! I know that I did my best and everything will pan out the way it is supposed to. Furthermore, there are some highly anticipated changes coming along for me and Greg in the very near future (besides the wedding).
I’m going to make this quick as Greg and I are driving half-way to Arizona to meet his mom. Russell (G’s dad) gave her a getaway trip gift for her and her best friend, so we are pretty excited to go and meet up with them! We will also be celebrating her birthday a few days early.
As soon as I opened my eyes this morning, my stomach was making that ominous grumbling noise that it so often makes. To be quite honest, I don’t know where or whom I got my appetite from!
Although I enjoyed them a lot, they didn’t fill me up as much as usual. I think that the different protein powders I use make a difference. As of now, I am using Boku protein powder because it’s all-natural, but I’m still on the lookout for other great choices.
Lunch time rolled around and as I was looking through my bridal shower list that Susan wanted to confirm with me, I quickly heated up my leftover bowl of Chipotle from last night.
I was kind of ravenous by this time, so while I microwaved this bowl I ate a bunch of it cold on the side. I always seem to eat cold food beforehand to stave off the hunger.
Topped with havarti cheese, avocado, Chobani plain yogurt, and a side of brussel sprouts.
Jenny’s recent post on working out was very inspiring for me today. I’ve been thinking that I should do ‘calmer’ routines more often, such as yoga.
On her post, Jenny mentioned that she likes to feel poised, graceful, and serene when she works out….whereas I prefer to feel strong, powerful and sweaty! In other words, I prefer to torture myself in my workouts. Hah!
But there are days when I want to feel elongated and poised as well, like today. I really felt like Jenny read my mind because I’ve been meaning to do Rodney Yee’s Yoga Burn.
Oh how I’ve missed you, yoga! In addition, I’m trying to take it easy today because my feet are pretty tired from running. At least, I believe it is from running because I have incredibly flat feet. So much so that I wear customized insoles half of the time.
So I will be doing a portion of the DVD sequence before I head out–at least just enough to get my muscles warmed up. I was wary of the slow pace of this sequence at first, but it really gets me worked up! I think that the slow movements help me to become more conscious of my body.
Do you have flat feet too? Do you feel like it contributes to other problems?
Are you a ‘poised’ or ‘sweaty’ exerciser, if you work out?
What protein powder/s do you recommend?
Grace & Peace,
