Yoga Challenge (day 18), and pathetic FLOG

Twenty minutes of "Stress Relief Yoga for Beginners" again, tonight. It's been a long day, and it's not nearly over yet -- some stress relief was definitely in order!

I noticed another huge improvement in my flexibility tonight -- I can actually do standing forward bend with straight legs and the block (in the high position!) I've never even been able to reach the block before! Wooo!

I'm thinking wide-leg standing forward bend is one of my most recent favorite poses -- it must stretch the hips or something, because it feels great!

~~~~~~~~~~

Breakfast:
example
The last muffin. Thank god. (And a banana, obviously.)

Lunch:
I packed a lunch, and then ate only part of what I packed, so I have no picture for you. Mr. Dennis (our cook) made me cheesy "pizza burgers" when he was making the meaty ones for the kids. Thanks, Mr. Dennis! I did eat my beets and grapes that I had packed, too. And a Dum Dums pop.

Snack:
example
Hummus, crackers, and a pear. The kids kept asking me about my "funny peanut butter." I also had a handfull of Nilla wafers with the kids, and TWO more Dum Dums pops. I was having an attack of my sweet tooth!

Dinner:
example
I must admit, tonight I was thinking about dinner on my way home . . . and craving a gooey quesadilla! Two-cheese and kale quesadilla, with homemade guacamole for dipping, and a side salad of romaine, tomatoes, and green onions, drizzled with lime juice and olive oil.

Treat:
I'm going to eat the last sprinkle cookie before I head out to choir practice! (And take my vitamin, too.)

Until tomorrow!
