Just do it.

That was my attitude today.  It felt great!

I opened my morning (after sleeping in to the ripe hour of 7AM) with a yogurt bowl comprised of:
Wallaby Bartlett Pear Yogurt
1/3 c Nature’s Path Pumpkin Granola
1/3 c Great Harvest Groovy Granola
4 strawberries
handful of blueberries

Refreshing, cold, and super filling.  That granola held me over until around 1:00!  I also loved the yogurt, it was my first time trying it!  Whole Foods supplied me with a bunch of new products to try (and by ‘supplied’ I mean ‘i bought’).

For lunch, I was craving cheddar with apple slices.  I sliced a Fuji apple and placed half of it on top of a Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin, topping that with two slices of Cabot Light Cheddar cheese.  I broiled it at 375 for about 10 minutes, until it browned on top and the cheese got melty.

While it baked, I gnawed on two gigantic sliced carrots.

Then it came time to eat!

Cheesy, sweet, and sharp.

Paired with a beautiful cup of watermelon.

For my workout today, I had a bit of elliptical plus yoga, so I pushed my snack until after the elliptical.  I ended up having a Chocolate Coffee Larabar Jocalat, that I had stuck in the freezer.

As good as these bars are, I had no idea how amazing they could be once you freeze them! It was like eating a frozen candy bar!

I headed to yoga with some new reading material…

it’s so good!

Dinner was a great take on my previous peanut tofu stirfry.  I had found a pack of stir-fry veggies at my grocery store.  It came with a huge amount, including onion, mushroom, mini corn, broccoli, and peppers.  It was a giant pack and it all rang in at around 90 calories.  I sauteed it in 1 tsp of sesame oil, then added 2/3 c cellophane noodles.  When it was all cooked through I added in my marinated baked lite tofu that I had drenched in peanut sauce before baking in the oven.  I also added a liberal tbsp of the sauce to the veggies to soften them up.  Unfortunately I had to eat it very quickly due to cleaning that had to be done at the studio, but it was delicious while it lasted.
Class was amazing! I get my title from a  mindset I had near the end of the practice, where he told us we could assume any prone position we wanted.  I was dying to get into full bridge expression (‘wheel’), but I had all of these doubts running through my head.  I finally thought to myself “JUST DO IT, NO REGRETS, DON’T THINK” and pushed myself up into the wheel.  I held it for three breaths, and felt fantastic as I unwound from the stance.  
Post-dinner I enjoyed a bunch of cherries.

Man, my eyes are closing.  Time to head to bed if I want to get a run in before work! I want a green monster tomorrow!!!
