A picture is worth…
at least the $23.99 I spent yesterday on a new card reader!
Green Potato Soup. Leftover mashed potatoes and leftover chard turned into pure green goodness.
The scenic drive home on Sunday.
Pom Balsamic. Yum.
And yesterday’s creation…
I made bread! With yeast and everything!
And it turned out pretty good! The texture is great, the flavor is lacking…salt. I put salt, rosemary, sunflower seeds, and buckwheat groats into the 100% whole wheat dough so I thought it would be tasty but it’s kinda bland. But bland I can fix, I am just pleased that it rose and didn’t come out of the oven a 5 pound brick! Tate gobbled it up! He’s not that hard to please but I still love it when food passes the Tate Test.
The last two days have been “rest days” for me (read: NO exercise ;)) but today I am ready to get moving.
Now that my MISSION: Yoga 5 for 5 is successfully completed it’s time for a new mission.
MISSION: Balance (Or A Little Bit of Everything)
Duration: 5 weeks
Dates: November 29-January 3
- 3-4 yoga session per week
- 3-4 runs per week
- 3 strength training sessions per week
- 1 Pilates session per week
This sounds like a lot of working out. And it will be but remember, sometimes my yoga, strength, and Pilates sessions are only 10-15 minutes each, which makes it very feasible to double or triple up on the workouts and still have 1-2 days “off” per week.
I love the idea of setting end of the year goals for myself rather than waiting until January. This plan will be just the kick in the pants I need to keep moving through the darkest time of the year. It will help energize and focus me plus keep some holiday weight off. Speaking of “holiday weight”, I lost a pound over Thanksgiving week! I guess I really did “make good choices”!
Other end-of-the-year resolutions I am making are; finish decorating the office and bedroom, make albums of Peru and the big trip, and to start blogging daily.
Better get going on my Mission! Today will feature a 20-30 minute strength training session and 30-40 minutes of yogatime.
Do you have a fitness goal or plan to carry you through the holidays and into the new year?
