Bikram

Frozen Smoothie

Hello! Today has been a really good day, but far too fast if you ask me. I ended up wandering through the Farmer’s Market by my apartment after work, and before I even got to the market, I spotted this truck:

A frozen yogurt truck! I knew I needed a snack because my stomach was grumbling, so this was an exciting discovery. I just ended up getting plain tart fro yo, and I actually ordered it in a cone but they were out and gave it to me in a cup instead.

The cone (with no toppings) was $2, and the small (with 3 toppings) was $5, and I”m cheap. So, plain it was. “Twas delicious though, and perfect for the hot, hot weather today. I made my way through the farmer’s market and am noticing such a change now because great stuff is coming out of the farms! There’s tons of fruit, greens, squash, beets, etc., and way more than there has been earlier this season. I ended up just getting  a little bit because I have the farm share coming on Thursday, but I picked up a few things that I knew wouldn’t be in there.

2 pink lady apples, baby cucumbers, cherries, cilantro, and goat cheese. I got all this stuff $17, the biggest splurge being the goat cheese which was $7, but I sampled some and it is SO good.

After my farmer’s market adventure, I decided to go to Bikram! I already worked out this morning, but it was just a quick run, and I haven’t been to Bikram in over a week, so I decided to just do it. It felt awesome. I’ve said this before, but for some reason, when I take some time off from Bikram, my first class back is always the best. I really enjoyed it and got deep into a lot of the postures, and held a few of them the whole time for the first time, which was very exciting for me.

Before I went to Bikram, I made myself a smoothie with:

  • 1 cup light soy milk (1 pt)
  • 1 large frozen banana (2 pts)
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries (.5 pts)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (.5 pts)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1 pt)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (.5 pts)

I poured it into a bowl:

I actually threw it in the freezer for 2.5 hours while I went to Bikram. I’d seen frozen smoothies on a few other blogs and wanted to see what it was all about. Here it is out of the freezer.

I couldn’t resist poking my finger in it immediately when I pulled it out of the freezer… thus the indent in there. Freezing it was such a great idea!! It made it take a lot longer to eat, and it was more slushy like and almost like a bowl of ice cream. It was SO satisfying and the perfect treat for after Bikram.

I am off to catch up on Treme from Sunday night (the New Orleans show on HBO!) Does anyone watch it? Awesome show!

It’s OK to Cheat (Sometimes)

Hey! Whew this day has flown by even though I got out of work early. I ended up making the 5:30pm Bikram class and it was amazing. I think after taking a few days/over a week off, my body craves it and I have such a good time. At first I thought my body would be angry for taking the time off/in shock from the heat, but as soon as I got in the room I was just happy. I found myself actually looking forward to some of the postures and surprised when the standing series was over. I go back and forth with that – sometimes I can’t believe it’s over, and sometimes I can’t believe it’s not time to lie down yet!

After Bikram, I headed to the grocery store for a much needed trip. I got a bunch of produce and some other random things so I can make it through the week making all my meals. I had gotten out of cooking for a bit leading up to my trip and I have been missing it! When I got home from the store, it was already after 8 and my boyfriend actually beat me home so we just decided to whip up something quick. I bought a pound of deveined shrimp, so we boiled them with some white wine, water, blackening seasoning and some bay leaves.

 Then I whipped up a salad with spinach, shredded carrots, roasted red peppers, and garlic sprouts.

And we pan fried some polenta with a little romano cheese for a starch with the meal.

This meal was delicious and SO easy. It’s OK to cheat sometimes… For one, we used bottled dressing (which we never do).

And the polenta was in a tube so we just had to cut it up and pan fry it. Plus, the shrimp were Easy Peel, so they were already deveined so all we had to do was cook them. We usually do most things from scratch but sometimes its nice to just have to take a few minutes to heat things up rather than take the time to do it all – – especially when you’re famished from Bikram!

I’m off to watch a little TV and get to bed early. Be back in the morning!

What’s your favorite cooking shortcut? I looooove canned beans and use them almost exclusively. It cuts hours of soaking and boiling the dried kind, even though I know those are better for me because they don’t add as much salt/preservatives.

Gorgeous

Today is amazing outside!! Oh my gosh. It is almost 90 degrees but dry, sunny, and amazing. Take a look at the view from my balcony. First, our pool:

And next, Reagan airport and the Potomac:

Ahh I can’t wait to get out there to enjoy this weather!

Today started with a 9am Bikram class that felt SO good. I really think the 2x a week idea is perfect for me. I woke up at 8am and went right away without eating, because they tell you not to eat right before you go and I wasn’t about to wake up too much before 8am on a Sunday! 🙂 I did drink a big glass of water before I went and then drank 2 bottles of ice water during the class. I had a new instructor today and he was amazing. He explained a few of the postures and did demonstrations of one’s I’ve never had broken down before so I got some awesome pointers from him. It was a great way to start the day and left me feeling cleansed, energized, and HUNGRY.

I got home and immediately ate a piece of toast with some Crofter’s Europe.

Then the boyfriend made us breakfast while I took a shower and cleaned up a little bit. There was an awesome ingredient today that I’ve never heard of before – Garlic Sprouts. Here is what they look like:

Garlic sprouts, also known as green garlic, spring garlic, young garlic, and baby garlic is immature garlic that hasn’t yet developed the garlic bulb that we typically think of when picturing garlic. They are about the thickness of green beans, but a lot longer and curly, as you can see. They are crisp and very similar to texture to green beans, but have a very potent garlic taste. I saw them at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday and had never seen them before, so I picked up a bag of them after having a taste. Just a tiny little bite BURSTS with garlic flavor, so these are definitely not for people who don’t love love love garlic like I do!

To use these today, we just chopped up a few since they’re so strong and added them to the white potatoes (also from the Farmer’s Market) to make a hash. I requested an egg white omelet (he had regular eggs) and we used corn (cut off the cob, not frozen for once), green onion, and a little more of the garlic sprouts for filling in the omelets, plus he had provolone but I did mine cheese-free.

Garnished with some of the veggie filling and some microgreens. He also had some toast but since I had the bread right after Bikram, I didn’t have more. I added some Sriracha to my omelet.

I also sliced up an apple that was meant for sharing, but I ended up eating it all.

An awesome meal and start to the day! I haven’t had an omelet in ages even though I eat eggs a lot, and this one was delicious.

We are having a Memorial Day gathering tomorrow (I’d say party but there aren’t too many people coming…) so we have to do some errands today to get ready as well as clean up the apartment. Hopefully I’ll still be able to soak up some sun and get everything done.

Have you ever tried garlic sprouts? What is the most unique ingredient you’ve ever found and cooked with? Or do you shy away from that stuff and just stick to what you know?

Busy Day!

Hi! Today has been really busy, but pretty fun too. At 5, my coworker (and friend) Kelly and I did a trip to the grocery store to stock up on some breakfast foods for tomorrow. We are both on our company social committee so we plan monthly gatherings for the staff, and this month instead of happy hour, we are doing an office breakfast. It’s scheduled for tomorrow and we’re getting it half catered, and half cooking in the office on griddles and George Formans. Kelly and I picked up a bunch of eggs, breakfast meat, OJ, and some other random breakfast items that you’ll get to see tomorrow. Should be fun and I’m pretty excited that I don’t have to think about packing breakfast tomorrow, too!

After our grocery trip, I went to a Bikram class at my favorite studio in Alexandria, VA. The studio has a great deal where you can purchase a 12 class package for $125, so just slightly above $10 per class. This is such a great deal considering most places are $15-20 per class for a drop in, so I took the plunge and bought the 12 package class tonight. For me this is the best type of package because I’ve decided I want to practice Bikram 2ish times a week and not more because thats just what works best for my body right now. Tonight’s class was awesome! I felt so good during the class and held some of the postures for the full time that I hadn’t been able to hold before! It’s so cool to see myself change and be able to handle more and more each class.

After I got home from Bikram, the boyfriend and I ordered Chinese food delivery. We’ve been really bad about cooking this week and have gone out to way more meals than normal. That said, the Chinese food was good tonight and it was nice having it here to eat when I got home from class. I started with a cup of egg drop soup:

And then had Mooshi Vegetable for my main dish, which is a lot of shredded veggies with eggs and it comes with pancakes and hoisin sauce.

I had two of these and they were really good, but the veggies were super saucy and pretty salty so now my mouth feels a little weird. While I was eating them though they were quite tasty. 🙂

I’m off to catch up on the Biggest Loser finale from last night even though I found out the winner today because I couldn’t stay away from it on Facebook/Twitter. For those of you who watch it, what do you think about the outcome? I’ll give my full opinion tomorrow once I actually see the whole episode!

Overdone

Hey guys! After I posted yesterday I was out all day zooming from place to place and didn’t have time to come back! My first stop was The Washington Sports Club in Columbia Heights, DC for a workout party sponsored by Dove. Liz, another DC blogger, was the host of the party and there were about 10 people, mostly bloggers, who came to the event. It was intense! It was a one hour long workout, 30 minutes were cardio kickboxing and 30 minutes were spent in “bootcamp.”

During the first half, there was lots of punching and kicking and complex moves combining several steps. I am a little lacking in the coordination department so I just had a smile on my face most of the time laughing at how hard it was to figure out what was going on. The moves changed frequently so by the time I nailed down one, it was already time to move onto the next. Then the next part was the actual bootcamp, and that was intense. We were doing minute intervals of different moves and then randomly the instructor would point to 2 people and have them do something different, like knee kicks with a medicine ball, or weighted squats with a bar bell against the wall with a stability ball. Whew! It was super fun and I actually really enjoyed it. I don’t usually do classes since I’m not a member of a gym, but it was so fun and it took so long to figure out what I was supposed to be doing that I almost forgot I was working out.

Then came the overdone part. I did not take my own advice, and decided to accompany my friend Amber to a Bikram class after the bootcamp. Now, in my defense, the reason I felt compelled to go is because yesterday was the last day of Yoga Week in DC and I hadn’t attended any of the events or tried any free/reduced classes. Yesterday’s 4pm Bikram class was free, my friend was going, and it was at a new-to-me Bikram studio. I made it through the whole class, but I felt pretty famished afterwards. I didn’t eat anything since having the eggs in the morning because I was rushing from one class the the next, and it just kind of shot my day. My back was really sore afterwards and I felt a little too sore.

After the Bikram class, my friend Amber and I went to grab some food at Booeymonger. It was rainy and chilly out, so I wanted to go with something warm and ordered the Veggie Special. It was a sandwich with grilled mushrooms, spinach, tomato, salad veggies, alfalfa sprouts, onions and melted provolone cheese with mayonnaise on a French baguette, but I ordered it without the mayo.

And it was just OK. It was a little bland because there was no sauce on it and the cheese and bread were pretty mild in flavor. I did inhale the whole thing because I was sooo hungry, but I’ll probably try something different next time I go.

After that, it was already somehow almost 7pm and the rest of my day was kind of shot. I stopped by my friend Jess’s to say hello to her and Rachel, but then I came home and took it easy because my back was so shot. I snacked a bunch on random things (think pretzels, baked tortilla chips, dark chocolate chips) and just laid low.

Today I woke up, and this probably won’t be a shocker, but I am sore. My arms, my calves, my whole body… wow. That’s what two back to back intense classes will do to you, I guess. 🙂 I woke up really hungry, and though we’re stocked with a lot of veggies, we are out of the essentials like milk, eggs, fruit, bread, etc, so a grocery trip is definitely in order later today. I found some frozen mini waffles so I threw them in the toaster, and then took some frozen fruit (mix of cherries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries) and microwaved it for 1 minute to melt it and make it saucy. I added some agave nectar to sweeten it, and then chopped half a banana and used those for the sauce on the waffles.

I may have ended up adding 1 tbsp of almond butter half way through. These waffles were fine and worked in a pinch, but I much prefer fresh waffles or pancakes – – though I don’t think that makes me stick out from the crowd. 🙂

Hope your weekends are going well! I will be back later, promise. 🙂

Back to Bikram

Happy Weekend to you! Disappearing on Friday nights seems to be a trend for me lately, sorry about that! I ended up spontaneously going to a Bikram class at 6 after work yesterday and it was awesome. I tend to get really into things when I get into them, and I think I burned myself out a little bit from going to Bikram for almost a week straight when I first started. I loved it, but getting the week unlimited of Bikram at the new studio made me overdo it a bit because I wanted to get my money’s worth (even though it was only $20).

I haven’t gone since that week, so it’s been almost 3 weeks, and when I went last night, it felt GREAT. I was a little concerned because I hadn’t planned to go, so I hadn’t been drinking that much water throughout the day and I wasn’t sure if I’d be mentally ready since its so intense, but when I got there, it just felt right. In the previous times I’d gone I was sort of counting down until the class was over (“Only 20 minutes left”) because I was so hot, but this time I could barely believe when the class was wrapping up and I just felt good the whole time. Lesson to me is that Bikram is good for me, but I should only go a few times a week max so I don’t get burned out on it.

After Bikram, I went into DC and hung out with my friend Lianne for a while. On the way there, I ate a Luna Bar that I had packed.

I really liked this flavor and to be honest I kind of thought I wasn’t going to like it. It was pretty refreshing and perfect for after Bikram. Lianne and I drank some wine and had some snacks (Garden Sunchips and toasted bread with hummus) but no pics. I had about 3 glasses of wine over the course of 3 hours so I didn’t overdo it too much. And our friends Amber and Mike came over for a bit to hang out too, which was fun. I didn’t end up getting home until almost 1am so just went to sleep pretty quickly after getting home.

And I slept hard – I don’t think I moved all night. I love that about Bikram. When I woke up this morning around 10:30am, I was starving since I didn’t have anything too significant after Bikram last night. I had some veggies in the fridge I wanted to use up, so I decided to do a farm fresh egg scramble.

I caramelized some onions, added in Mediterranean squash (which looks a lot like avocado to me!), and then added 4 eggs (for me and my boyfriend). Towards the end I added some crumbled goat cheese which was the perfect finish.

Doesn’t that squash look like avocado?? I served the scramble alongside a toasted english muffin (the only bread we have left in the house!) and 1/2 a mango. For the mango, I just sliced it along both sides of the big seed in the middle to separate the two halves. Then, for each half, I just sliced it (but not through the skin) and you can eat it like that with a spoon, a fork, or use a knife to cut those off the skin for perfect mango chunks.

Today I am going to a bootcamp style workout party with some other bloggers and friends in the DC area. It’s sponsored by Dove and apparently we’re getting free shirts and dove samples! I love me some free stuff, plus I’m sure this workout with kick my butt. Assuming I make it through alive, I’ll be back afterwards.

Have a good day!

Poached Eggs with Avocado? Yes, Please!

Hey! This week is seriously flying by.. I feel like I say that every week but this time I really mean it! I’m going to make this pretty quick because, and I know I say this every night lately, I am TIRED and want to really make an effort to get to bed early. Check up on me tomorrow to hold me to it. 🙂

I did Bikram after work today and it was HARD. There weren’t too many people there even though this class is usually busy, but I’m guessing that’s because they were out celebrating Cinco de Mayo. For some reason today, I felt like I could barely breath! After the first few standing postures I had to sit down for a little bit – it was strange because I took yesterday off and it wasn’t humid at all today. I am going to take tomorrow off too and go for a nice long bikeride because I still haven’t tried my new seat even though its installed. I’ll go back to Bikram on Friday, which concludes my week pass, then I’m going to take a bit of time off from it because its expensive and I’ve really been neglecting biking, running, and weight training. Also, it is such a huge time commitment with the workout itself plus getting there early and showering after, so I’m looking forward to having a little more free time most evenings.

After my lunch, I ran out and got some gummy bears because I wanted them. Good reason, right? 🙂

Afternoon snacks included an apple

And a Chobani 2% Strawberry Banana

I am loving the 2% flavors recently. I think they taste great, are a little thicker than the 0%, and really stick with me longer.

When I got home, I was REALLY hungry, so I wanted to make something fast. I quickly decided on eggs, my favorite quick meal.

This is two poached eggs, served over 1/2 a medium sized avocado, with two slices of toasted whole wheat potato bread. Poaching can seem intimidating – i know it did for me before I learned the right way, but its really so quick, easy, and its great that you don’t have to add any butter or oil to cook them in.  Jenna did a post on it here, but my method is a little less precise. I usually do it in a pan, as long as its deep enough for the water to cover the eggs, and the three secrets to poaching perfect eggs are:

1.) Add vinegar to the poaching water

2.) Bring the water to a boil and then down to a simmer before putting the eggs in

3.) Crack the eggs in a dish and then pour into the water, don’t crack them directly into the water

I leave it for about 3-4 minutes and don’t cover it, and then use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pan. They turned out exactly how I like them, with the yolk oozing all over once I broke it.

Mmmm. This was exactly what I wanted and was in my belly 15 minutes after I came up with the idea. 🙂

Night!

Community Book Room

Whew what a day! I am feeling so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open – it’s going to be an early night! I don’t even know if I’ll make it through Nurse Jackie… one of my favorite shows right now, so that says something!

One of the reasons I’m so tired is because I stayed up too late last night because I’ve was reading this book. There is a community book room in my apartment complex and it is such an awesome thing to have. Basically, its a room on the lobby level full of books. You can go in there any time you’re looking for a new read and take it with you. I always put a lot of good books in there when I’m done reading, and sometimes find some really great books I never would have discovered otherwise. The book I’m currently reading was in there and it says on the front, “Highly recommended for fans of authors like Jodi Picoult and Jacequelyn Michard.” It had me right there – Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read almost all of her novels and loved each one. This book is a little sad but its the kind you read where you cannot put it down. I’ve been reading it on the metro to/from work and I’ve definitely missed my stop more than once! 🙂

My afternoon snack today was a Pineapple Chobani with the last of the Fiber One in my desk.

I had it around 4pm and it held me over really well. I never would have tried the 2% yogurt had Chobani not sent me the samples, and I’m so glad I did. It has the same number of WW Points as the nonfat kinds (3 pts) but keeps me full for a lot longer.

After work, I took the 6pm Bikram tonight. It was hard! It’s day 3 in a row for me and since it was so humid outside, the class itself was really hot and sweaty, even more than normal. Not to mention, 6pm is the time of choice for a lot of people who go after work, so it was packed. People were practically on top of each other, and when you’re that sweaty, the last thing you want is someone else who’s equally sweaty touching you! I can definitely tell that I’m getting better at the postures and really enjoy it, but tomorrow I’m going to take the day off from it.

When I got home, I was starving and I opened my fridge and saw the leftover pizza from Saturday night. I heated it up for 45 seconds and devoured it.

Two sliced of wild mushroom pizza with 4 types of cheese… yum! It was delish. After my pizza, I was craving some fruit, so I had three mandarins.

And then as I sat down to write this I realized I wanted something else, so I had a huge banana.

I had to take a bite before I could snap a pic. 😉

I’m off to relax and hopefully get to bed early tonight.

Be back tomorrow!

Biking and Bikram

Weekends go by so fast, don’t they? I can’t believe it’s Sunday night already! This weekend has been very relaxing and enjoyable so I’m especially sad to see it come to an end, though I don’t think I’m ever thrilled when Monday morning rolls around…

I ended up going for a bike ride today even though I didn’t get to put my new seat on. We didn’t have an Allen wrench so couldn’t get the old seat off, but I was already decked out in my bike gear so I figured why not. I ended up doing 8 miles in just under 36 minutes, which means I’m getting faster! It used to take me 40 minutes to do the same ride, and I’m definitely feeling a bit more confident on the bike each time I ride. I think just testing out the gears and finding the ones I’m comfortable with for hills has been what’s helped me improve my speed.

After my bike ride I had a banana:

I didn’t want to eat anything too heavy because Bikram was in less than 2 hours and the last thing on Earth you want to feel during Bikram is full. I did drink a TON of water after my bike ride. It was about 90 degrees outside so I was sweating and got really thirsty. I made my water more fun to drink by adding some frozen Very Cherry blend from Trader Joe’s instead of ice.

It’s a mix of cherries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries and made me feel so fancy while drinking it. 🙂

Bikram went SO much better today than yesterday. I really enjoyed myself and can already notice improvements in my abilities to do the different postures. It’s amazing to me just how much you sweat during the class though because your clothes are seriously so wet that you could wring them out after. Everyone always told me that before I ever tried it, but I never really “got it” until I tried it and its crazy. Very cleansing, though.

After Bikram I was starving, and luckily had a PURE Bar in my bag that I munched on during the drive home.

Love these things. I also had a piece of the whole wheat potato bread with some Peanut Butter and Crofters when I got home but ate it too quickly to take a picture. Oops.

After that I had to run a few errands, and then decided to stop at this Kabob place by my apartment that I’ve never tried. There was an awesome Afgan Kabob restaurant by my old apartment that we used to eat about once a week and loved, so I figured I should give this one a shot. Unfortunately they don’t have any veggie/shrimp/fish kabobs, but they did a vegetarian plate with their two veggie sides, rice, and salad, which is what I ordered.

Though it doesn’t look that pretty, it was really delicious. The two veggies were chickpeas and spinach with potatoes. There was also some unpictured bread that came with it and I ate everything on my plate and the bread. The other kabob place had veggie kabobs with tomatoes, onions, and peppers, and also had about 10 different vegetarian sides to choose from to go with your dish. They also had 3 different kinds of rice, fresh hummus, and a bunch of different sauces. I like having options, but this new kabob place is just so close to my apartment that it’ll have to do in a pinch.

I’m off to savor the last few minutes of the weekend but plan to get to bed early tonight. Be back tomorrow!

Happy Hour and Bikram Are Not A Good Combo

This is the first and last post you will see that talks about both Happy Hour and Bikram because this combo will never happen again for me!

Happy hour last night turned into quite a late night (for me). Several coworkers and I went to Cafe Asia after work. The night started innocently enough with some sake.

And I got a bowl of miso soup

and some sushi.

A spicy tuna roll and one piece each of octopus, salmon, yellowtail, and eel to be exact. The sushi and soup were both delicious, and the sake kept flowing. I ended up overdoing it bigtime with Sake because we were all sharing the bottles of it so it was hard to tell how much I was drinking. Towards the end of the night, I ordered a large bowl of udon noodle soup because I needed something more in my stomach.

This was incredible. There two two tempura fried shrimp in the soup and lots of udon noodles in a delicious broth. I’m glad I got that bowl of soup because I couldn’t imagine how I would have felt this morning without it.

I woke up at 7am and could not go back to sleep. My body tends to do that to me if I drink, and so I just decided to get up and go on my way. I went to Target at 8 to pick up a few things, and I was not feeling so hot while there, so I got some gingerale. I came home and decided to make a Grilled Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich, which was delicious.

I have seen peanut butter banana sandwiches all around the blogsphere but I was out of bananas so decided to try it with an apple and it was awesome! I sliced up the apple and microwaved it for 1 minute with a little of water at the bottom of the bowl. Then I took 2 sliced of whole wheat toast and spread 1 tbsp peanut butter on each piece. I placed all the cooked apples on top of the peanut butter on one piece and then the other piece of bread on top. Then I grilled it in a pan to brown the bread for about 1-2 minutes per side. The apples were soft so worked great in this sandwich and you can never go wrong with peanut butter.

It was sooo good and definitely made me feel a lot better. I also drank a lot of water all morning (and throughout the night). I met up with my friend Lianne to go to Bikram at 11 like we had planned. Once I got in the room, I started sweating almost immediately. This was a different studio than I’d been to before, and this was Lianne’s first time doing Bikram! I did the first few postures and then just started feeling awful. I had to sit down through many of the poses, which I didn’t have to do either of the first two times I went. I felt nauseous and uncomfortable but managed to stay in the room for the whole 90 minutes. I was definitely the first person to leave once we were done and practically ran over the teacher on the way up the stairs to the locker room so I could get more cold water. They gave us pineapple after the class which was juicy and delicious. I love that you get fruit or a popsicle after the class is done because it really replenishes you.

Moral of the story, never go to Bikram if you’re hungover. Drinking dehydrates you anyways and you need to be super hydrated since you sweat so much in the 105 degree room. Both the other times I did it I was loving the whole series and this time it was just so hard to even stay in the room and not throw up. 🙁 Lesson learned.

When I got home, I wanted something cold and filling, so I made a Green Monster.

Not the greenest monster I’ve ever made but it sure was delicious.

My GM had:

  • 1/2 frozen banana (all i had left!)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • frozen strawberries, pineapple, and honeydew (end of that 6 pound bag from Costco!)
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • last packet of Amazing Grass
  • 2 big handfuls of spinach

I haven’t had a GM in a few days so it really hit the spot. I keep drinking lots of water and will continue to throughout the day. I’m going to Bikram again tomorrow, so will not be drinking today even a sip! 🙂 I have to go grocery shopping and clean my apartment and maybe take a nap since I was up so early. It’s gorgeous outside, 90 degrees and sunny, so I’d like to spend some time outside, too!

I’ll be back!
