Back in the Habits

So I apparently published this post yesterday without knowing it. It was just me uploading my yoga mat picture, so I’m sure that was all confusing fun. Whoops.

I haven’t been posting lately because I’ve been in a funk that’s been hard to kick off. I find I have a hard time writing when I’m not happy. So I feel a bit out of practice with posting. But yesterday I resolved to get back into the habits I let slide the past few months, so I’m back, grumpy pants and all.

Anyway, how are you?

In happy news, Hulk and I saw “A Million Ways to Die in the West” Saturday night.


OMG, it was hilarious. It has been so long since I laughed that hard at a movie. It’s written, directed, produced, and stars Seth MacFarlane, the creator behind “Family Guy” so that gives you an idea of the inappropriate humor level the film has. But since my sense of humor is random, inappropriate, and sort of “dude-like” then it was a winner for me. Instant family classic right there.

So I let some habits go that I’m trying to get back into. Like exercise. And eating healthy food. And blogging. And blogging about exercise and eating healthy food. So yesterday was a “Day 1” of sorts for getting back on the where-I-want-to-be bandwagon.

It started out with me actually waking up in time to go to yoga.



You guys, it’s been about 3 months since I’ve been to a class. I was so out of shape. I picked a Hatha yoga class because I thought it would be less intense than my usual beloved Vinyasa flow. That was a good call, because I still had to modify stuff. My hamstrings are worlds better after my PT, but they’re still a bit weak. Plus, I wasn’t too sure about what mods I needed being all pregnant and stuff, so I sat out some of the crazy twisting and floor work that didn’t seem to be working for me. Gotta listen to your body, and I’m glad I did because I was still sore this morning.

I made breakfast before yoga of some quick nuked eggs, apple, and almond butter. Slammed a coffee with almond milk, too.


After yoga I felt a might peckish, but not really super hungry. We had all of these veggies that were slowing fading to oblivion in the fridge, so I cut them all up and made a salad bar of sorts.


For all you “where’s your PROTEIN??” nazis out there, I did have some unpictured frozen boneless chicken wings as well. But they looked lousy and tasted worse. This is what happens when I don’t go shopping in over a week.

I ran errands in the afternoon, and even stopped for my first Pinkberry. I don’t know what inspired me to stop, but it just sounded good so I rolled with it. Strawberry banana and original tart swirl with almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips.


When I got home, it was nearly 80 degrees and most definitely pool time.


So much sun.

After my early lunch and all the activities, I was feeling pretty hungry around late afternoon. It was too early for dinner, and Squish was getting a bit hungry too. So I found some tortillas in the back of the cupboard and fix him up an almond butter and jelly wrap, and myself a quickie cheese quesadilla.


Which we enjoyed while jumping on the couch watching Netflix.

As soon as our beloved Indian restaurant Mehfil’s Indian Cuisine opened, I ordered delivery for dinner. Chicken tikka masala, rice, and some fancy naan with a bunch of crap on it. Get in my belly.


I think the naan was mint, coriander, and jalapeño. Normally we rock the garlic naan or none at all, but I like having something to dip in the curry after I’ve eaten all the chicken. I could practically drink that stuff.

Now I’m off for a fun and exciting week of work travel. I’ve packed a healthy snack for the plane, my workout clothes are packed, and I’m looking forward to a great week. I’ll see you later on the East Coast!

Make it a great day!
