Happy Thursday blends! I love Thursdays….once Thursday hits, it pretty much seems like the weekend. Plus, I seem to always be super productive on Thursdays, both at home and at work.
This morning, I woke up early and finally cashed in a Living Social deal that I bought months ago for a month unlimited at a yoga studio. I love me some Bikram (read my top 10 tips for Bikram here), but I still find myself craving other types of yoga. When I was living in Utah, I attended a yoga class at the gym every week and got hooked. But I’ve been out of the flow yoga habit for a while.
The class this morning was a Power Flow class, and it was small – just 6 people, including me. I loved the personal attention the instructor gave and the small adjustments in poses he’d make on each person. Large yoga classes in the gym setting don’t allow for that. For me, the feeling after a Flow-type class is very different than post-Bikram. Maybe better, maybe not. Still deciding. But definitely different. I felt calm, but energized. Limber and strong. I can’t wait to go back. I wish they had early AM classes every day.
Dinner is just about ready – Tofu Saag with Brown Rice (a recipe from Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, which I highly recommend) and then I’m going to take Maizey on a walk in this beautiful 75 degree weather. I’m excited to try out the new kicks that ecco sent me. They’re from their BIOM line, which is their “natural motion” running shoe.
How stinkin’ cute are these?
I love the inside of them too.
I won’t be running in these – I’m pretty sure I’m a Vibram lifer. But, while I haven’t been getting bored on the elliptical, wearing Vibrams on the elliptical hurts my toes since they jam up against the foot pedal thingys. Plus, I have a groupon for CrossFit and don’t think I’ll want to wear Vibrams for that. Moral of the story, I’ve been wanting to get some cross-trainers and ecco offered these to me at just the right time. I’ll let you know what I think!
Have a good night and happy weekend! 🙂
