Good morning! 😀
How’d you sleep last night? I finally got a good night’s rest. The past few nights, I haven’t been able to shut off my brain, so I’ve been tossing and turning and obsessing/worrying, but last night, I slept well. Thank goodness!
Last Night’s Dinner
Last night’s dinner was another four-ingredient recipe: Broccoli & Cheese Couscous with roasted broccoli, cannellini beans, and crumbled feta.
I cooked the couscous and roasted broccoli separately, and then just mixed everything together. Delish!
Mal and I sat down to dinner at 4:50 pm. Hello, early bird special!
After dinner, I enjoyed two pieces of whole wheat toast with almond butter and peanut butter and chocolate chips on top. Mmm!
This morning’s breakfast was whole wheat toast with peanut butter and banana slices on top. Nothing fancy, but still delicious, nutritious, and satisfying.
I also drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.
A few weeks ago, I bought a two-week unlimited pass to a nearby yoga studio. I paid $25 and used it to its full advantage. I attended five sessions in two weeks, so it worked out to $5 per class. Pretty good, right?
Unfortunately (for me), this offer was only a one-time deal, so I couldn’t buy another one, but I really like the yoga studio and my regular practice is doing me a lot of good. It has helped loosen my tight runner’s legs, increased my core strength, and improved my mood. (I’ve been a lot more pleasant lately!) The studio offered a number of membership options:
- Drop In Rate: $14
- 5 Class Pass: $65
- 10 Class Pass: $125
- 30 Day Unlimited Pass: $150
- 6 Month Unlimited Pass: $749
I really wanted to sign up for the 6 Month Unlimited Pass or even the 30 Day Unlimited Pass, but I just couldn’t justify spending the money, especially since I already pay for a gym membership. I realize that I can always practice yoga at home for free, but I just don’t get as good of a workout”” I get distracted, lose interest, and don’t challenge myself as much as I would if I were in a class setting.
I took a quick poll on Twitter the other day, and it seems that these prices are pretty standard, so I bit the bullet and bought a 10 Class Pass, which works out to $12.50 per class. I probably won’t attend yoga classes as much, but maybe it’ll get me to take my at-home practice a little more seriously. Who knows, maybe I’ll reprioritize my spending so I can afford an Unlimited Pass?
Question of the Day
Why is yoga so expensive? If you take classes, how much do you pay?
