Good morning everyone!
I hope you guys are had a good start to your week. Mine has been pretty good. I’ve been on track when it comes to balancing work, school, and other healthy habits which is good. I haven’t been stressing and been trying to easy heart with what comes my way.
Breakfast: After waking up a bit later, I had a light breakfast as pre-yoga sustenance.
Lunch: After yoga, I came home to get ready and start my school work. As I got ready, I had a mango. As I worked, I ate lunch.
Dessert: Because I had time.
Snack: I ended up kind of rushing to get to work. So I wasn’t prepared with anything spectacular (read – I was hungry at 11pm)
Talk intermission: I took the early morning yoga class yesterday. I was having my doubts after getting out late and hungry the night before, but I just sucked it up and went to bed. I was able to wake up and enjoy a little quiet time. I thought yoga would be hard and I would be sleepy, with a little dedication to others and positive energy through out the room, it seemed almost effortless. Yes I stumbled and struggled with my breath some of the time. But the fact that I did it for others, made it easier. Difficult times and tasks requires you to push forward and experience a better side. Being able to do my practice while the skies turned from dark to light, in a room full of loving dedicated people, it was just that.
Breakfast: I wasn’t in the mood for anything complicated. Actually, I was in the mood for cereal. I’ve been waiting to make my own nut-milk though, but since that never really happens, I kind of just took what I could get.
Lunch: I was able to do my school work and catch up with stuff straight through. With little time to make lunch, I had some leftovers. Now, usually I wouldn’t be having something like this if it was just me. My grandparents are away for a little bit, and she made this yesterday. I know she makes things in hopes that I would eat it if I can, so this one is for her. Simple, delicious, and made with love. I know she would be happy seeing me eat this.
Dinner: Snacking at work.
Trying something new.I figured I didn’t really eat my greens for lunch. Easy way to get something right? Wasn’t too bad. Not something I would eat every day, but for on the go extra nutrients, it was pretty good. It’s raw, organic, and gluten-free too!
In between meals and before bed I also try and have some ginger tea. Ginger and a little warmth do the digestion good. Enjoy your mid-week peeps!
