My morning started bright and early at 5:01 AM, and I’ve been going non-stop ever since.
My first stop of the day was at the gym for a Baptiste Power Yoga class. Baptiste Power Yoga is a challenging and flowing form of yoga that is done in a hot room. It’s very much like the hot yoga that I tried in Chicago, but without music.
Baptiste Power Yoga offers stretch-seeking visitors an opportunity to practice limbering postures in a sudorific environment without rolling out a mat in a steamy submarine engine room. Within stretch-inducing, 90-degree confines, participants will downward dog their way to core-tightening and silhouette-slimming fitness under the supervision of experienced instructors. Just like jogging through the jungle in a gorilla suit, Baptiste’s power Vinyasa yoga sheds stress and buckets of calories while motivating participants in a friendly, anaconda-free atmosphere.
I never thought I was a yoga person, but I really love “hot” yoga. In other yoga classes (mostly the slow-paced ones), I get bored within 15 minutes and then check the clock a million times wishing the class would end. Hot yoga is totally different for me. My mind stays focused and I rarely ever look at the clock. Maybe it’s the heat and sweat that makes it feel like a “real” workout and I’m not just wasting my time? I dunno. Hot yoga is more my style, I guess.
After class, I grabbed an iced soy latte from Starbucks. I parked my car right out front, so I figured why not? 😉
Then, I hit the grocery store to do our shopping for the week. Grocery shopping at 7:00 AM on a Wednesday is amazing! The store was empty! No crowds, no lines. I was in and out in 25 minutes and I managed to save $17 off my bill! 😀
You can see what I purchased over on Trading Up Downtown!
After running around all morning, I was more than ready to eat when I walked through the door. I threw together a quick peanut butter and banana wrap with raisins and chia seeds inside.
So, it’s official! Late last night, Mal and I made an offer on another house!
Even though house hunting can be really stressful, I’ve throughly enjoyed the process. I was bummed about the previous house, but I knew it just wasn’t the one for us. We’ve also had an amazing realtor, who has helped make finding a new home less stressful and even fun. She’s very responsive and totally has her act together. She even offered us freshly baked chocolate chip cookies while we signed our offer last night! 😀
Our realtor also sent us home with a big zucchini and a squash. Murphy didn’t know what to think!
