Winter Wonderland

It snowed this afternoon in the DC area, which means that everybody panicked and traffic came to a complete standstill.  I had to cancel a 4:30 appointment that I had and missed going to yoga with Katy and it took me nearly an hour to get home, when my job is 10 minutes away.  The snow wasn’t even sticking and rain would’ve been worse, but that’s Northern Virginia for you!

As much as I love TurboFire, my body just wasn’t feeling it today, so I did a Rodney Yee Yoga for Beginners sequence to channel my frustration.  I bought it a year ago since it had been several years since I’d practiced yoga, but didn’t even end up opening the DVD until today.  It was a little too easy for me, but definitely some great quick yoga when I’m not feeling the need to do something as vigorous.


I also have his Yoga Burn DVD and am curious to try it out one day and see what it’s like.

Some eats:

Blueberry Peach Skinny Smoothie.  I made it last night and the chia seeds gelled into a sort of pudding overnight, so I had to eat it with a spoon.

No time to take a picture of lunch, but I had some leftover millet “potatoes” and some carrot red pepper soup.  Snack included some dates and a Shakeology drink.

Since it was a cozy sort of night, I decided to make soup once again, this time courtesy of the Whole Foods 28 Day Healthy Eating Challenge that I’m taking part in.  The Healthy Eating Specialist emailed us a fantastic chicken and brown rice soup recipe, which I of course modified to be vegan friendly by adding a little tofu.  I had all of the ingredients on hand except for the celery, and decided to add a little bit of miso to give it a little extra kick, which I think made it taste even better.

Time for some relaxation and meditation before bed!
