Since this week is busy (a cappella Tuesday, work late Wednesday, book club Thursday) I haven’t gotten to the gym as much as I would have liked.
After working late last night though, I wanted to do some kind of exercise. I am now a little scary to be around when I don’t have my endorphin fix, I think.
I wasn’t feeling running in my nasty one-treadmilled apartment gym, so I settled for some yoga. When I say I’m doing yoga, it most likely means I am doing:
I started doing the Sunrise episode of this DVD in the Fall when it was on my Comcast On Demand. I loved Sarah Ivanhoe’s calm voice telling me “Anddd if youuu topple outt of ittt….just be gladdd you are doing it at allll.”
Ahhhh. Sarah Ivanhoe, please make a goodnight/lullaby talk tape. I’ll spearhead that endeavor for you, if you’d like.
Anyway, it was especially nice to unwind to the Sunset episode at night after a long day of work. Yes, I turn off the lights and light vanilla and lavender scented candles and sometimes do yoga in my underwear. Hashtag…overshare.
I try to do yoga about once a week, and I have gotten so much more flexible from doing it in the past few months. But since I haven’t done yoga lately, my joints were a little tighter than usual.
After I got stretchified, I promptly did not make my sleep challenge. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow night.
I lucked out for lunches this week – we had extra sandwiches from Brown Bag available at work both yesterday and today.
My delectable concoction consisted of turkey on multigrain bread with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onions, and pickles.
I think the best part of having lunch provided at work is that I didn’t have to make my bag lunch last night, and I won’t have to tonight. Sine I made my Wednesday lunch on Tuesday night and haven’t eaten it yet, I get to use it for tomorrow’s lunch.
For some reason, I loathe making my lunch/overnight oats the night before work. I’m too lazy to make it right when I get home from work, so I make it right before I go to bed. But then the whole night I feel like I have some annoying chore hanging over my head.
I’m bringing organic sweet potato chips to my once-a-month girls’ book club tonight. I’m excited to nosh on yummy snacks all evening and catch up on some girly gossip. I’ll let you know what book we choose for next month!
