Yoga Challenge (day 2) and FLOG

I decided to step up my yoga workout this evening a wee bit, and chose the "30-minute core workout" from Gaiam's Yoga Now series. I had purchased this set of three DVDs quite a while ago, but haven't ever really used them -- there is a lot of arm-swinging and random jumping around, since the instructors combine yoga and aerobics (I didn't realize this when I purchased the DVDs.) However, I chose to retry this DVD tonight, and although the jumping around and arm-swinging is still a little weird, it was a pretty good workout! My legs, arms, and abs all feel like I did a little more than usual, and my back feels all stretchy and happy.

And, we've had a last-minute participant join the yoga challenge:
A day late and about 19 minutes short of qualifying, but I bet he doesn't care. :)

Today's eats . . .

I'm going to try and pack healthier breakfasts, instead of eating cold cereal, pancakes, french toast, whatever with the kids. (All heavily processed.) Today, I filled a homemade pita with peanut butter and sliced bananas. Yum. Coffee and multivitamin not pictured.

Leftover rice and dal, and two chocolate-chip cookies.

Afternoon Snack:
Muffin and pear.

After Work Snack:

(I don't usually snack after work; I'd prefer to eat dinner right away, but with fitting in the yoga, I've had to change up my mealtimes a little bit so I'm not practicing on a full tummy.)

Chickpea and orzo soup, with half a leftover roll. (I would have had a whole roll, but there was only a half left! Rats.)

Off to fold the laundry and renew some library books online. Until tomorrow!

Don't you love how a cat will find exactly what you are ready to use/read to lie on top of!

Yay for yoga and flogs!

Your food looks great.. smart move about packing a breakfast. It is so sad what kids are fed. I don't understand why the food can't be healthier for our kids?

I can't wait for my video tape to get here.. I've been doing the 20 minute download thing.. which is great, but I want my dvd!!
