Yoga Back-Up Plan

I had big plans for Day 2 of the 31-Day Yoga Challenge...I was going to go to my 90 minute Hot Yoga class! Plus this Hot Class (mon evening) is always hotter than the Saturday morning class so I like it even better!! I just love the heat and sweating :)

Well I rushed to get there, even ran a little through the icky snowy sidewalks, and because of the snow it was apparently moved up an hour...class was almost over :)
(guess I should of checked the website)! Lesson Learned.

I was SO bummed...but I came home, went into my room, shut the door, dimmed the lights, layed out my mat and did 30 min Power Yoga #1. This was definitely more challenging than anything I've done to date...worked my arms, legs, and core a lot more than normal, but I really liked it. Plus I think my frustration from not getting to my Hot class made me focus better on my breathing and I was a lot more focused than normal.

Day 2 - complete!

Not too exciting on the food front today...but still delicious as usual; I find it pointless to eat foods that you don't LOVE, which is why it takes me so long to pack my lunch sometimes haha...I have to have all the little components to make my meals and snacks complete.

Breakfast, I was a bit rushed to pack breakfast with the snow storm looming on my morning commute, so I packed a quick one:
  • Vanilla Chobani
  • Strawberries
  • Bare Naked Fruit and Nut granola sprinkle
  • ...perfect
No pics of lunch or snack...I'll just let you know it was left overs from Dinner last night at Mom's: Roast Chicken and Roast Veggies! Oh, and a little piece of Pie...and 2 rolly pollies I ate during the day :)

After Yoga tonight I had a finger food dinner
  • 1/2 Spinach Flat Out wrap with seafood salad
  • 1 sliced small tomato
  • 1 pickle spear
  • 1 slice prosciutto, 1 slice fresh mozzarella, 1/2 slice salami from my leftover antipasti I had for dinner the other night in the North End
  • a few of TJ's Roasted Gorgonzola crackers
Delicious!!For dessert I FINALLY opened up my box of Chocolate Vita-Top Muffin Tops!! I bought them like over a month ago and just opened them tonight!! I had one, with some Spread Cookies and Cream PB!!Ok, I LOVE these! They totally satisfy that craving for warm/chocolaty/baked good without tasting super rich or sweet!

mmmmmmmmm melty chocolate!

Now some bizzzzzzzzzzness!

Tomorrow will be the last day for the Yo-Plus Giveaway!!

Other Giveaways...
Krista is giving away an AWESOME gift pack!! I want that damn coconut spread!

One Frugal Foodie is giving away a TON of loot...I'd be happy with just 1 breakfast cookie!

Last but CERTAINLY not least, the amazing Heather at Hangry Pants gave me a Kreative Blogger Award!!! I was SO SO SO excited to see it on her site one day, and it felt so great to be recognized by such an awesome blogger!
Thank you SO SO much Heather!!
