Yoga Challenge (day 6), FLOG

I did 20 minutes of Yoga Journal's "Step-by-Step: Session 1" tonight. (Garnered through Netflix! Woo!) This series is designed to teach novices how to do some basic yoga poses correctly, which I thought could be interesting! I didn't watch any of the introductory material or medical information regarding the benefits of yoga, but I did enjoy the 20 minutes of sun salutations! What a work out, by the way -- lots of relatively fast-paced up and down off the floor. I'll definitely be trying this workout a couple more times before I return the DVD!


First Breakfast:
Peanut butter and apple butter pita. This was just okay -- my pita is getting a little bit stale.

Second Breakfast:
Consumed with the kids while they were eating "Kix."

Leftover pizza and a salad. I also had a butterscotch-flavored "Dum Dums" sucker.

Minneola and cookies. I also had a little popcorn with the kids while they were watching their Friday afternoon movie treat.

I made Melody's Comfort Soup, which I enjoyed and was a HUGE hit with Dan. Anything spicy and citrusy is a big winner with him -- I'm sure this soup will be a frequent request! Thanks for posting your recipe, Mel! Homemade rolls and more salad on the side.

Dan and I went to an art show opening tonight, which was at a really cool coffee shop in downtown Saint Paul. Dan bought me a HUGE iced molasses cookie, which I ate part of -- I convinced him to eat the rest. :) It was awesome! Soft and chewy molasses cookies are the BEST.

Until tomorrow!
