Good afternoon! I hope you’re all having a nice day – it’s rainy and dreary here so I’ve been hunkered down getting things done, though I did give myself a lunchtime yoga break over at Edge Yoga. I was feeling strong and balanced today so I attempted headstand with the help of the instructor, and I did it! Proud. :) Now to work on balancing in it on my own!
As for yesterday’s workout, I spent one last morning with the beautiful Cherry Blossoms. They are sadly on their way out and are probably all gone by today, especially with the rain. Too short!
My friend Kathleen and I met up early at the Smithsonian metro for the adventure. It was so pretty out!
From the mall, we headed over to the tidal basin and ran two laps around it, enjoying our last views of the flowering trees until next year.
Great way to start the day – beautiful views and great company. :)
We ended up covering about 5 miles!
On the food front, today my day began with a Flour Free Breakfast Pancake. This breakfast never fails. So delicious!
Lunch was a ginormous vegan Mexican-ish salad: greens + black beans + cilantro + salsa + green pepper + avocado + 90 second brown rice. Hit the spot!
On the snack front, I’m planning to bust out our juicer a little bit later – I’ve been loving fresh juice lately as a snack, paired with something that has some healthy fat and protein like one of my Nutty Protein Granola Bars or just some plain nuts. Last week I whipped up a few variations of my favorite concoction – carrots + apple + greens + celery. I need to buy some fresh ginger to toss in there, too! Eat the rainbow. :)
And now, it’s back to work! I’m catching up on emails and some AnneTheRD client work + some client meetings, and also putting together some discussion prompts for Thursday morning’s class at GW. I had my students watch the documentary “Food, Inc.” and we’re going to discuss it on Thursday! Should be interesting. :)
Have a good one, my friends!
