I slept very well last night, but oddly enough less than my usual. As a result, I was up much earlier than I planned, but I went with it. I had a bowl of plain Greek yogurt with applesauce and some walnuts and got some work done before working out.
I had won a DVD from Health Magazine a month or two ago and never got around to using it; since I ran a half-marathon yesterday, I figured a restorative yoga session was definitely in order, so I popped the DVD in!
I was pleasantly surprised with this video; I have had other yoga videos and find them to be pretty easy and more relaxation focused (which is fine if I want a stretch/relax session that day), but this got a sweat going! It reminded me of some of the outdoor yoga classes I have attended recently. It was faster-paced and much more challenging (I definitely have lots of room for improvement).
Let me tell you Kristin McGee is definitely called the “Bendy Girl” for a reason! (Definitely put me to shame!) Since I don’t have weights in my dorm room, I opted to complete the warm-up, pilates-based segment, and yoga-based segment for a 50 minute workout.
After I quick shower, I made myself some pancakes using some of the leftover black rice, banana, and blueberries. Off to get some work done before the last full week of classes!
