Yoga Challenge (day 16) and FLOG

Today is really the first day since I've started this challenge that I truly considered skipping the yoga -- I did get some exercise (walking) earlier in the day, and we ate dinner kind of late, so I'm still pretty full. HOWEVER, I will do yoga! I slept in this morning, (almost until 10:00!!), so I'll stay up a little later and do 25 minutes of "PM Yoga for Beginners" right before bed.

I'm sure glad I set "prizes" for myself if I complete this challenge, because if it wasn't for that, I bet I'd skip tonight! :)


No breakfast today, since I woke up so late! (I did drink coffee, of course.)

I loosely followed this recipe for black bean soup, but changed things up a little bit . . . more veggies, slightly fewer beans, adding a chipotle chili in adobo and some tomato paste, etc. This was delicious topped with a little queso fresco and green onions, with a side salad of romaine, avocado, and tomato, (topped with lime juice and olive oil,) and some homemade "Broa" (Portuguese Corn Bread,) from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

No pictures, sorry! I had a cookie at home, a Tootsie Pop while I was waiting for Dan to have his beard trimmed at Fantastic Sam's, and THEN Dan bought me an ice cream cone! It was a sugary afternoon, and my gut let me know later -- that ice cream cone sat like a ROCK in my tummy for quite a while. Ugh. (But it was delicious!)


Dan and I shared this big plate of sushi and edamame. Sometimes I use white rice, sometimes brown, in my sushi -- this week it was brown rice. The brown rice doesn't stick together quite as well as the white rice, but it is definitely nutritionally superior, so there you go. :)


Ugh -- back to work for me tomorrow! At least it's only four more days until Friday, right?

YUM! I want that sushi..

Good job doing yoga even if you didn't want to.. I've found it very challenging this week as I've been at my old house and it's not as comfortable... but I've done it!
