A first...

I am usually sore the first week of a new set of workouts. By the second week the soreness has subsided and it is smooth sailing.  That was all before I met workout 10.  Weighted jumping lunges, jumping squats, weighted rockstars..... you get the picture.  They are all tough on the glutes, so I am sore again today.....very, very sore.  Cardio 3 was tough today- the soreness coupled with a higher than normal temperature in the house made it tough, but I pushed through.

I did not want to go to yoga today, but I did.  When I got there I could tell I wasn't the only one who wasn't feeling it tonight by the vibe in the air.  We went through a very stretching intensive workout tonight and it was heaven.  Afterwards our instructor said she could pick on the energy and tailored the workout to the vibe.  I LOVE that about yoga.  I got exactly what I needed.


Today I poached my very first egg and topped it with a little hot sauce.  Not bad for the first attempt.  I also had the goat cheese spread on top of toast with kiwi.

Lunch was just leftover falafel from last night, not pictured.

Snack- more yogurt!  This time with raspberry and pecans.  The novelty has worn off, I'll have something different tomorrow.

Dinner-cajun chicken pasta (I used brown rice pasta).  This was really good!  It had just the right amount of kick.  Here is the recipe from Prevention RD-

Have a great night everyone!


  1. Way to keep on with the workouts in the face of soreness & "not feeling it." I've had to remind myself a lot lately that we can't go on feelings, because they are fickle. We just have to Nike-up and do it! Thanks for leading us by example.

    You food looks delish. I want to try the pasta!

  2. Ok, the picture of your breakfast seals it; I'm definitely getting kiwi on my next grocery trip. I've been craving it like mad lately, becuase it looks so delicious in all your pictures!

    I'm so glad you're enjoying your yoga exeperience more and more! I attended classes regularly for a few years, and had to stop recently due to time and financial restraints, but I'm counting the days until I can go back. It sounds like you have a reall awesome instructor if she's willing and able to cater routines to the vibe in the room. I wish I could have been there for all that stretching!

  3. I miss yoga too. I wish it weren't so expensive and my schedule wasn't so ridiculous. It's been on my radar lately as something to treat myself to when this 90 days is over though.
