Hey everyone! Happy almost-Friday 🙂 How’s your morning been?
After Zumba and abs last night (which were a blasty as usual) Jeni and I celebrated Indian Food Wednesday 🙂
(dal, channa masala, cabbage and gajar halwa– my new obsession)
It was a two-plater kinda night 😉
Twas glorious 😀
This morning, I decided to spend a little quality time with an old friend- my yoga mat. It’s been almost 3 weeks since I’ve had a decent yoga practice!
I chose the 45-minute Solar Flow from YogaDownload.com and at first was alarmed with how tight my muscles felt. I felt like I had lost a TON of flexibility in the past few weeks from solely doing Insanity, Zumba and spinning — Stubborn Gina would have stopped the podcast and continued with her day. Instead, I decided to be patient and roll with it, and after warming up, my body went back into the flow like it used to, but I felt even stronger in the poses than before- I busted out flying crow like it was nobody’s biznazz.
I guess yoga is like riding a bike?
Or what I would imagine riding a bike to be like, as the only I ride doesn’t go anywhere 😉
It’s time to dive into some blueberry-banana Perfect Protein Pancakes:
and get the house and food ready for girls night 🙂
