Thursday 8/11

Wow was yoga awesome last night. We worked hard, got sweaty, and man, did I feel it this morning. My legs are sore, my arms are sore, my back is sore, my abs are sore.... and you know what


It was the hey, I-worked-out-and-I-am-sore-today, but-I-like-it-and-want-to-do-it-again, kinda feeling! YAY! it is what I call good-sore. So I did some gentle stretches today. Don't want to hurt myself or make myself NOT want to exercise.

Oh and I reached a milestone that I meant to mention earlier, but wasn't blogging... I can do downward facing dog! Like really! I popped into dog the other night. I have been doing wall dog for awhile and I just went for it. Actually my body went for it before my brain had a chance to think it over and doubt I could do it! YESSSS! Jessica said she looked up and I was in down-dog and it surprised her (she knew I started out with an injured shoulder & hadn't done it before). She said I looked great! Great form and everything! WHAAAT! YES!

Anyway, it was cool & I have done it once more since then! :)

Tonight's challenge is to make a healthy choice when meeting friends out at a local bar & grill for a birthday celebration. I have taken a cue from my friend Shelli (who has lost 40+ lbs so far) and have scoped out the menu to see what lies ahead. I have decided to go for the Warm Bacon Spinach Salad with the dressing on the side:

Baby spinach, sliced egg,
bacon, bleu cheese, red
onions, seasoned green beans,
mushrooms, tomatoes, red
bell peppers, and warm bacon
balsamic vinaigrette.

Sounds yummy (sans tomatoes, of course!)

Enjoy your evening!

  1. I love that kind of sore :-)

    Good job on the planning. I do that before we eat anywhere.
