This morning I couldn't wait to start my day with a Banana Mocha Hemp Smoothie. I was feeling tired from going to bed late the night before after helping my friends paint their new house. So I knew this new icy drink was the perfect boost for the day. I'll include the recipe in a separate post. That recipe can be found here. It was just the thing I needed to start my day!
Here is what I ate today:
Breakfast: Banana Mocha Hemp Smoothie and Udi's Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with cream cheese. I never thought I would eat a bagel again so I was excited to try these bagels when I found them. They are really good. Nice flavor and chewy texture like a regular bagel. Score!
Lunch: Leftover burger from the night before with a side of tortilla chips and a Wholly Guacamole Mini pack. We love these mini packs! So convenient for a tasty lunch or snack.
Dinner: This evening the kids had Jiu-Jitsu class, which means they needed a quick and nutritious dinner that wouldn't be heavy in their stomachs. I decided to make scrambled eggs with a side of mixed green and wax beans with baby carrots and mashed yams with a little butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Delicious and nutritious fast food!
Snack: Tonight I ended the day with a bowl of Moose Tracks Frozen Yogurt. Such a creamy bowl of wonderfulness. :)
How I exercised today:
Since today is Thursday that means it is Yoga with Adriene day! I love this girl so much; her vibe and the way she teaches yoga really resonate with me. She's all about finding what feels good in yoga, not seeking perfection in the poses. If you haven't tried any of her yoga videos yet, you HAVE to try them today! You are going to wish you tried them sooner. :) She has videos on her website plus a YouTube channel. Check it out!
For today's practice I chose Morning Yoga - Energizing Morning Sequence. This 24:06 video lives up to its name. It is a great way to start the day. I felt ready to go start the day after finishing this sequence. You can find this video here: http://youtu.be/K-Ina_WW4Yc. Try it out tomorrow and let me know what you think!
