Spring breakin'!


Phew. I felt like I was really forcing myself to get through the rest of this week. I am totally ready for some R & R and not worrying about school for a while.

Before I headed to class today, I made a Honey Oikos with a little bit of TJ's Chocolate Decadence cereal on top:

I also brought an apple and a Cherry Pie Lara Bar with me. I was kinda hungry during my workout and yoga, but I think maybe cutting out my usual sandwich wasn't horrible today, especially since I ate breakfast later.

Speaking of yoga, it was AWESOME today! I had thought about not going because I'm ridiculously burnt out, but then I thought about the fact that I wouldn't be going for over a week. I'm so glad I did. We did some really fun poses: one was a hand stand type with feet against the wall to make an upside down 'L'. Also did headstands against the wall. I was unsure about whether I'd be able to do them, but I did! Not only that, but my instructor commented on my flexibility and skill level earlier in class, and had me help her demonstrate spotting in the head stand. Sometimes some recognition can really boost the mood, especially if it's something that you're proud of :)

Dinner tonight was for using up some of my food so it doesn't go to waste before break. I based it on this recipe, but used whole wheat spaghetti and smart balance instead of egg noodles and butter. In case you can't see them, there's also shrimp, asparagus (grilled instead of steamed), and mushrooms in there.

Yummy :) After some chores and such, I was ready for the last of my Cherry Garcia. I threw in about 1/2 an oz. of cocoa almonds, too. Mmmmm, awesome addition.

Alright, all. I need to resuming my lounging. Have a great night!
