I think I am getting the hang of the stovetop thing! I made my morning oats using the stovetop method, and they came out so incredibly delicious!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup vanilla hemp milk
- 1 tsp hemp protein
- Raisins, walnuts, and pumpkin seeds
- 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter
The stovetop method (and lots of stirring) made my oats soooo creamy! The canned pumpkin and hemp milk helped, too!
Boy, I took a lot of photos of my breakfast today! 😳 My oats were really delicious!
So, last night’s Basic Training class wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. I was actually rather disappointed in it, especially since Mal and I paid an extra fee to join the 12-week class. When I think “Basic Training,” I think non-stop movement and military-style drills. This class was slow-paced and not that difficult at all– I never even broke a sweat! There was, however, a small glimmer of hope that this class might be worth the money after all. Towards the end of class, we did a ton of tough core exercises and ab work. I was dying trying to keep up with the instructor! Mal and I are going to attend next week’s Basic Training class and hope for the best.
Yoga Challenge: Day 10
Luna Flow was excellent last night! I can actually notice my flexibility improving– I got my nose to my knee in a hamstring pose last night! It felt great!
This morning I did 20 minutes of Gentle Hatha Flow #2, which was the perfect audio class to awaken by body from sleep. To start my day off on the right foot, the class had a little bit of everything– stretching, strengthening, and balance. If you’re thinking about joining the 31 Day Yoga Challenge as a yoga newbie, I would highly recommend this session as a starting point.
