I woke up this morning planning to go for a run first thing but was met by rain! So I did 100 crunches and 20 lifts with my dumbells and then did some email checking before I had my breakfast.
10:30am Breakfast was my standard, the exact same thing as yesterday: a bowl of fruit (1 apple, 1 kiwi, 1/2 cup strawberries and raspberries), 2 whole wheat quinoa rice crackers with about 1 tbs hummus and some arugula and a cup of organic green tea.
The rain had slowed to a drizzle so I bundled up and headed in to town to check out a Bikram Yoga place I just discovered. I speedwalked through town and stopped by the magazine store as well, to pick up some health and fitness magazines.
I was hoping they would have Self but they didn’t, so i got Women’s Health and Fitness.
On the way home I picked up a package I’d got from a friend who lives in Australia. Another magazine – Russh!
2:45pm I whipped up a wonderful bowl of oatmeal for lunch: about 1 cup oatmeal (after cooking), 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 tbs Trader Joe’s vegan carob chips (that I bought when I was in the US last time) and a dollop of organic peanut butter. Oh, and a cup of organic green tea, of course. I polished this bowl off while reading my Fitness magazine.
A closeup was in order. I was trying to show the strawberries.
The weather had finally cleared up, the sky was blue and the sun was beaming. Perfect for a run! I went for about 40 minutes and was able to clear my mind a little bit. Today has been one of those “up and down” days.
6.10pm Dinner was a portion of organic brown rice and wakame noodles, with a bunch of stirfry veggies, a half teaspoon of thai red curry for flavor and a drizzle of organic tamari. Sorry about the bad picture, bad lighting and I was in a hurry to eat before the food got cold!

I’ve signed up to try out Bikram Yoga for the first time ever tomorrow morning at ten! Wish me luck! I’m really nervous about it. The class is 90 minutes long, i.e. one and a half hours! I’m scared I’m going to pass out or throw up or something, but I’m excited to try it too because it does sound interesting and I hear you burn a lot of calories doing it.
Have you ever tried Bikram Yoga, what did you think?
