GYM: Gym time started out with a new class called CXWORX. I wanted to try it because I was told it was a core conditioning class. It was exactly that and it kicked my
Then it was YOGA. I heart yoga! Something I have noticed about the poses is that alot of them are named after animals. Anyone know why that is??
Today we did the Pigeon pose which is excellent for stretching the back, thighs, groin and psoas. Something that I certainly need. Its funny how it hurts and feels good at the same time. And I love when Andrea comes around and helps to adjust you ever so slightly to square your hips or loosen your shoulders. Good stuff.
FOOD: I actually took some time to make Oatmeal Pancakes for breakfast this morning. I usually make a bunch so that I have them available to eat for several days. Easy Peasy!
I steamed 1 bunch of kale. Save 1/2 cup of the green water from steaming.
Let the kale cool for about 15mins.
|Then I threw it into the food processor with 1/2 cup walnuts.|
|Add the 1/2 cup green water.|
|Process it. And process it some more.|
|Until it is smooth like butter.|
|Then it is ready to add to some baked Sweet Potatoes!|
|And you know me...add some more veggies to make it a complete meal.|
My back is already sore from core class (Im guessing that is because my core is so weak that the back muscles were picking up the slack big time). Im hoping that my knee feels good tomorrow so I can run. If not, I may need to think about making a doctors appointment. Bleh...
