Yoga Challenge (day 10) and FLOG

Again tonight, I had thought I'd be up for 45 minutes of "Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss," but it was not to be . . . I think winter's dragging on is dragging me down! Anyhow, I did Gaiam's "Yoga Now 30-minute Core Workout." This practice is indeed a workout! My muscles felt used by the end of the 30 minutes, and tonight was the first time I've noticed some improvement in my flexibility since the beginning of the challenge -- I'm closer to being able to straighten my legs in standing forward bend, and I think I may have eliminated my extra bend in downward dog! Woo!

~~~~~~~~~~

Breakfast:
example
I added some soymilk to my granola at work. Coffee not pictured. I have GOT to figure out a vitamin routine, because I couldn't remember whether I took one this morning, so I just took one now. Maybe I should take it with lunch every day??

Lunch:
example
Leftover chili with a little shredded cheddar, leftover cornbread, and a cookie.

Snack:
example
Muffin and pear. I also had a banana-flavored "Dum-Dums" pop. Why? Because the kids were having Fritos for snack, and I needed something to distract me away from salty, chippy, greasiness. (I can't believe Fritos count as a snack! Ugh.) The pop worked wonders, by the way! (That, and all of my knowledge of scary GMO corn.)

Second Snack:
example
I had to eat a little something before yoga, and dates did the trick!

Dinner:
example
Leftover tofu scramble, and "panfried mashed potatoes" -- I patted out a few leftover mashed potatoes into a patty, coated it in panko, and panfried the whole thing for a couple of minutes. Heavenly!

Treat:
example
Mmmm . . . cookie!

~~~~~~~~~~

I better get to bed here pretty fast -- I have to set the alarm early tomorrow morning to fit the yoga in. 'Night!
