This morning I woke up feeling super tight from yesterday’s Flywheel class so I was extra happy for my morning practice. Hurray for Yoga Vida on-line. Today I tried the Rise and Shine: Quick Morning Practice. A basic vinyasa flow that built to headstand. My body needed it – when we got to head to knee I could JUST ABOUT touch my toes – which is crazy for me as I am super flexible. Thank you morning practice.
Today was day one of my 30-day squat challenge. I did 20 counterbalance box squats. Going in, I thought – this is going to be easy, why are we starting with such a low number. Well – by 15 I was thanking God I only had five to go. Maybe my legs are tired from Flywheel yesterday, or maybe I just want to believe that. But I felt it in my arms as well. So I am now all the more jazzed about this challenge. Will I be able to do 50 prisoner air squats on day 27? I guess we’ll find out.
After dropping my daughter at school (dressed as Super Why) and my son (who is a dinosaur) with my mom I treated myself to a pumpkin doughnut at Dough. I honestly wish they would make a plain doughnut with nothing on it – not to take away from the glaze, but looking at the doughnut sitting next to me I can tell you that the pastry itself is beautifully fluffy and perfectly balanced with a slightly crisp outside. I want to taste that by itself. But my word if this pumpkin glaze isn’t amazing. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice is just a pile of chemicals. THIS is like eating a pumpkin pie but as a doughnut and yes please I am in heaven!
It’s 9:35a and I already feel the day has been a success. Happy Halloween, y’all!
