I spent a lot of time away from my desk yesterday and it was awesome. Of course, I’m paying for it today (holy inbox explosion!), but it was totally worth it and a really good day.
I’ve been using YogaDownload to practice at home, but it’s just not the same as a class, so I was psyched about the 10 sessions coming to me and cashed one in yesterday. I also just really love Dancing Crow Yoga. They have the best instructors and classes.
My favorite class at Dancing Crow Yoga is Nikki’s Strengthen Your Asana. I planned to go yesterday morning, but, right before it started, I slipped into the Gentle Yoga class that was happening at the same time. Nikki’s class is sort of like a Power Yoga class with lots of strength and core work, but I felt like taking more of a low-key, flow-y, and stretchy class. The Gentle Yoga class was good, but a little too gentle for my liking. I liked that it focused on breath and breathing, but there were way too many resting breaks and not enough activity for me. Even still, it felt great to just “let go” and chill out for 75 minutes. It was exactly what I needed.
After yoga, I hit up Banana Republic and Kohl’s to look for a dress to wear to Mal’s sister’s wedding next weekend and something to wear to Jen’s rehearsal dinner the following week. Elizabeth‘s wedding is also coming up, so I shopped for that too. It’s wedding season, baby!
After shopping for wedding wear, I popped into Whole Foods to grab some groceries (since we can’t seem to go a whole week without a second shopping since we started eating more of a Paleo-esque diet). It was well past my usual lunchtime and I was hungry, so I succumbed to the Whole Foods salad and hot bars.
I also succumbed to the Kombucha. I have no idea if it actually works, but it’s sure delicious!
There was a package of Wholly Guacamole in the fridge that was on its last days, so I added some (with carrot and cucumber sticks) to lunch.
After lunch, I took Murphy to the park. It was a beautiful day, and I was still wearing my workout gear, so I figured why not? A nice walk outside in the sunshine would be good for the both of us.
I switched things up by taking Murphy to a different park.
Unfortunately, at this one, “all dogs must be leashed.” Wicked bummer for Murphy.
I kept him on leash, but let him “free” for a little while when we practiced poses for today’s pug photo shoot.
Work it, pug! Love your “Blue Steel”!
Clearly, “Le Tigre” is a totally different look.
After the park, I came home and snacked on some more guacamole and veggies. Awesome snack.
Be back soon with dinner!
