Ya know, since I've been soul searching and stuff. Not. I've been so busy, it's ridiculous. Don't ask what I've been doing...I don't really know either. But somehow, time flies. I guess I can't complain.
Realization #1: I really like yoga.
There was once a time when I didn't enjoy it. But I've changed, and boy, is it a workout! (If you do the right kind of class, that is). Yesterday, I did a yoga class that was on the Veria tv channel. Ever heard of Veria? It's a health and wellness channel--I recommend checking it out if you get the chance! Anyway, yoga never fails to work up my appetite to the extreme.
Remember my recent post about motivation? One reason I like yoga is because it really keeps my motivation going. Sure, I can do the above pose, and this one:
...but one thing I really need work in is the hamstring department. It's pretty bad.
They. are. so. tight. And the more I practice, the better it gets. No lie! There was a time I couldn't touch my toes. And after practicing yoga a few times a week, I was able to do it. So satisfying to see results, as small as they may be!!
Realization #2: Baking in the summer in AZ is a terrible idea.
I still haven't decided if it's because turning on the oven makes it hot, or because mixing the batter is hard work. Either way, I think I sweat so much today that I worked up an equally as ravenous an appetite as I did after my yoga sesh. Huh.
Realization #3: Kale chips. Make them.
These are the healthiest snack ever. I have quite a few kale chip recipes if you are new to the kale chip world! And just a warning...once you enter, there's no turning back. I know, it seems weird, but I've converted many a skeptic into a kale chip lover!! Plus, if you eat these, late night snacking = late night nutrition. YEAH!
