Day 275: When I first purchased my unlimited month at Core Power Yoga, I made a goal to go to Sculpt everyday for thirty days, but after two days in a row, I tossed that one out the window. Although it is my favorite workout around, my body wanted something different…or maybe just not so sweaty (see super soaked bra, eek!).
Day 276: Yesterday a big group of lululemon friends went to Bonza Bodies for a 50 minute cardio circuit style class. The room was not as hot as the heated Core Power classes, however it’s quite possible that I sweated even more. Although I spent the entire 50 minutes catching my breath, it did not seem that bad since I had ten friends going through the same thing and laughing at our instructor, Jamie Atlas.
Day 277: This morning another group of lululemon friends went to Pura Vida for Billy Potocnik’s 6 a.m. power flow. He started off the class with a five-minute meditation that focused on gratitude. It helped me focus on what I wanted to emotionally dedicate my practice to and concentrate on how to stay more present in my life….normally, I would share this wisdom, but I’ve been up since 5 a.m. and now I can’t remember what the key to that was. I will ask him the next time I see him and make sure to put it in the blog 🙂
After an hour of some intense power yoga, I came home and made my new favorite smoothie and rode my bike into work:
-1/2 cup pineapple, 2 cups spinach, a handful of basil, half a banana, 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of cucumbers, ice and water*
*I don’t actually measure out any of my green smoothies, this is just an approximate guess. If you are trying to get into drinking them, just play around with ingredients that you like and you’ll find the right amount of servings of fruit/veggies to put in.
