So I’m really trying to enjoy these days of unemployment between school and getting a job. I’m currently filling my time with running, working out, yoga, play time with my niece and nephews, and watching tons of baseball.
This morning started with another smoothie. This one had almond milk, frozen strawberries, frozen banana, walnuts, and vanilla whey protein powder. I’d have to say strawberry banana is my favorite smoothie combo ever. Classic.
After breakfast, I headed to a deep stretch class at Darling Yoga. I bought a Groupon when I moved here for five classes. Over the weekend, when I went to Gary Gribble’s Running Store to buy a knee brace, one of the employees thought the pain in my knee might be partially caused by tight hamstrings. I was hoping a good yoga stretch would help with that.
We used tons of props in this class which was awesome and allowed me to stretch pretty deep in the poses. During shavasana, they pass out scented eye pillows. Aww, so relaxing.
Back at home, I hung out with my buddy, Charlie.
And hard-boiled some eggs for lunch.
Lunch plate – 2 hard-boiled eggs, simple salad with greens and a honey mustard vinaigrette with a side of apple and PB. The vinaigrette was made with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, dijon, and S&P.
For the cardio, I stuck to the elliptical for low impact.
Dinner included these local chickens that my dad cooked in the smoker on Monday. We had the leftovers tonight with asparagus and sweet potatoes.
Now I’m sipping some cinnamon spice tea before bed. Lovely fall evening.
