Good evening and sorry for the late post!
I have been busy drinking [many bottles of] wine with Kath + Matt + Tate!
T’was a very lovely evening full of food and friends and lively conversation.
The evening started with best intentions and healthy endeavors. Kath met me at my house in the late afternoon to bike to a FREE yoga class! Unfortunately the class was only worth free :(. I suppose we shouldn’t have had great expectations, after all it was free because the teacher is going through the studios teacher training program and it was possibly the very first class she’s ever taught. The biggest issue for us is that it wasn’t our preferred style, which is vinyasa and the class was hatha (basicly that translates to s l o w e r to anyone not fluent in yoga talk). To her credit, she gave great adjustments. To her critique, she way over-explained poses!
We met the husbands back at the house for the mile walk downtown to Market Street Wineshop to do a little Christmas beer tasting. I love tasting with Matt and Kath because they are both really good at describing flavors, never something that has been my strong suit.
Back at home we got to work on dinner, which was a random assortment of what sounded good.
Roasted butternut squash
Twin Oaks Thai Tofu (Matt and Kath’s contribution, they visited the factory last week!)
And Matzo Ball soup!
Most random meal ever? Maybe…
We enjoyed it though :). We also enjoyed breaking into Tate and I’s swelling wine cabinet and chocolate stash ;).
Mid-afternoon I enjoyed a 4 mile walk with this cutie
Her lovely mom, Anna, walked also.
I love walking dates with friends! Even better than coffee dates! (Yoga dates are great too, just not as much time to talk!)
My morning strength training was this 20 minute workout from Exercise TV. This is one of my new favorites, so creative and full body!
Exercise plan fulfilled, yay!
How about you?
I completed my yoga for the day and it felt wonderful! I also survived mailing some packages at the post office 🙂
Nice work on the yoga! The post office must have been a madhouse!
Too bad you yoga class wasn’t better 🙁 But your dinner looks awesome!
I didn’t commit to my activity on your blog this morning, but I accomplished all my goals: 4 mile run, 30 minute walk with the dog, and yoga at home this evening. Now I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for an early swim in the morning…
Nice work with your workouts today and best of luck with your morning swim!
We are so good at drinking wine together!! 🙂 Chocolate was goooood!
SO good at the wine drinking! And the walking, and the yoga, and beer tasting, and the cooking of healthy dinners.
I would ask you to reconsider the phrase :only worth free, as many practitioners / businesses may apply that marketing technique with new business. Lots of snow this morning, so I will not be running. Just walking the dog.
I did it! I put on the Biggest Loser and then did my healthy back and yoga workout – granted, I might not have been as focussed as I could have been during my yoga!
But you did it, that’s great!
Aw…walk dates…I wish I had girlfriends to do that with…it sounds like such a great time.
Walk dates are the best. None of your friends are into it? If I don’t have a friend to walk with I sometimes phone a friend while I walk instead. I really need to get one of those bluetooth things though because my arm gets tired holding the phone for miles!
