Hey! Today is FLYING by. I loved reading all your comments on today’s Yoga Pose May post about your favorite types of yoga/positions. One funny little story is that my friend Kara read it, and she saw the first picture and said “That looks SO easy. I could totally do that!” before scrolling down and realizing giving yourself a yoga hug isn’t the WHOLE posture, just step 1. Ha!
Today’s lunch was leftovers from Wednesday night’s Chinese food plus a little office leftovers mixed in! I had the rest of the Mooshi Veggies with the hoisin sauce on two of the pancakes.
These are so good. I have no idea what the nutritionals are but they can’t be TOO bad since its mostly veggies and a little egg. They are kind of doused in the sauce but I’m going to pretend its really good for me. 🙂 My boyfriend had ordered Schezuan Jumbo Shrimp with Veggies and had some leftover veggies, so I added in 1/2 cup of black beans and threw it over a bed of spinach on the side.
It felt good to use all the leftovers because a lot of times we don’t use them all before they go bad, and I hate wasting food! This was really delicious – the Schezuan sauce was spicy but it was evened out by the beans + spinach.
For dessert I had the rest of the Farmer’s Market strawberries.
But then I was told there were leftovers in the conference room from a work lunch, so I had to check it out! I grabbed all the fruit that was garnishing the cookie and sandwich plates, and added it to my strawberries.
Some starfruit and kiwi, and one strawberry. The strawberry was not good compared to the fresh ones from the farmer’s market! It was firm and not sweet at all. I also had to snag one of the cute little cookies:
How cute is that!? Yum.
Now I’m off to wrap up the day so I can get ready for this long weekend!! Does anyone have any fun plans? I’m just laying low and lounging by the pool if weather permits, but cannot wait to just relax and hopefully get a little less pasty!
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!
