Good morning! :mrgreen:

I skipped writing this morning, but I did so for good reason: YOGA! Sweet, sweet yoga!

Yoga Challenge

This morning, I did a 20-minute Yoga for Runners session from Yogadownload.com. It was perfect for my, oh, so tight hamstrings and hips. Check out the class description:

Yoga for Runners was designed with the runner in mind, but is a flow for everyone to enjoy. This Power Yoga class helps you to enjoy life to the fullest, and will enhance your experience in any activity you choose: hiking, cycling, climbing, running, walking, or simply going about your busy day. Use this class after any athletic activity to stretch and lengthen your muscles, or any time you are looking to slow down, become focused and create space in your body and mind. Ahhh, you we feel amazing, refreshed, and renewed!

Yoga for Runners was great– my practice, however, was not so great. I’m so inflexible now-a-days! Some of the poses actually hurt! 😕 I really enjoyed the lower body stretching and the core work, but I found myself losing my balance and breathing weird a number of times. And, as always, my mind drifted all over the place– to breakfast, book writing, blogging, etc. It’s only my first day back on the yoga train, so I’m sure it’ll get easier the more I practice.

How are you doing with the Yoga Challenge?


I made Mal and me a special breakfast this morning: Pumpkin French Toast! :mrgreen:


In my Pumpkin French Toast batter was liquid egg whites, vanilla soy milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and a scoop of canned pumpkin, which mixed right in.



On the side, I had a small serving of cantaloupe.


It was so fun eating French toast during the work week! 😀 It’s such a weekend meal to me.



After a finished eating my Pumpkin French Toast, I decided to mix the rest of my iced coffee with a scoop of chocolate protein powder. I figured that I needed a little more protein in my breakfast.
