I have been doing something special for the last 21 days…
YOGAAAA[recycled photo from when I did yoga outside… when it wasn’t 90 degrees out]AAAAA!
I’ve been using the 30 Day Yoga Challenge videos on Youtube to get myself to do some yoga every day. I love that most of them are easy (just hip openers) and they’re all around 15 minutes long, more or less.
After the first week, I started incorporating other yoga videos (longer, more intense ones). LOVING IT.
What’s been great is that I am doing it to get the benefits of the mind-body connection, as well as think about my breathing. I often do a lot of shallow breathing (except when running), and getting in these slow, deep breaths has been awesome!
Not sure if it’s the 3 weeks of yoga or not… but I have been a lot more conscious of when I am hungry or full. SWIT.
In addition to yoga, I have been trying to prepare my own lunches/dinners when I go to school:
I certainly know that eating real food is better than eating packaged/instant foods (which is what I’ll end up eating if I don’t pack anything), so I am really making an effort to make it happen.
As you can see, I love colorful dishes, and I love mixing random stuff together. If I like it, it goes in the container… chicken apple sausage, cilantro, corn salsa, quinoa, goat cheese, squash, you name it! Whatever ingredients I like on its own, I figure, will taste good when all mixed together.
That’s why bibimbop is my favorite (Korean mixed side-dish-with-rice dish… and a fried egg on top!).
How long is your commute to work/school everyday? [Mornings going to SFSU takes one hour. 45 minutes on the way back (no traffic and turbo-boost down 280)].
Do you pack your lunch/dinner? What is your favorite dish to pack?
Who loves yoga? Do you take a class or do yoga videos?
