Daily Creativity: Yoga totally counts as a creative exercise, right? I went to a 90 minute vinyasa donation class today and I mostly follow along with the teacher, but do my own poses or variations when I need to. I think this stimulates my thinking/creative parts plenty. So I say it counts. I’m running out of ideas for creativity. Anyone have any ideas?
Yesterday’s very random drawing experiment.
Please excuse the hair. Rain makes my hair even more unmanageable than it usually is. No long run today; still pouring. Yoga was a good workout though. I think I did my best headstand and forearm stand ever today. I’m going to try and get out early to run tomorrow even though I know it will be pouring. I’m going to be travelling most of the day so I won’t have another chance. Oh Michigan, how I’ve missed your cold, flat greenness!
Funny story: at Trader Joe’s today, I was looking for the flax almond butter and like five employees told me they don’t have such a product. I kept insisting that they did, because I bought it a few weeks ago (picture evidence here), and they were like, no, we only have flax peanut butter. Finally someone came and said, “oh yeah, we do have that, but we’re out.” It wasn’t like I was angry or they were, it was just funny. Also, note: NEVER go to the NY Trader Joe’s on a Sunday afternoon. When I realized they didn’t even have the AB, I hightailed it out of there to the UWS WF instead. Much better choice. I ended up acquiring a perfectly tasty jar of AB there, although it wasn’t my favorite — Maranatha — because that stuff is so expensive. Seriously, 12-18 dollars for a jar????
Awesome oatmeal this morning:
That’s kashi creamy vanilla instant oats with a banana, lots of water (these oats absorb a ton of water and get very, well, creamy) 2 TBSP AB and 2 TBSP chocolate chips. So nom nom nom. I really want to think of a candy bar to name this after, but I can’t. Sort of like a Snickers maybe, only with a banana vanilla flavor too? Hmmmm…All that really matters is its degree of deliciousness. Which was a perfect 10. Clearly.
Alright, I have to clean, fold laundry, and pack for tomorrow. It’s going to be a pretty busy/exhausting day — run, work, therapy, lunch, travel to airport, fly (don’t ask me why my flight from NYC to Detroit must go through Philly), home at midnight. Ick. Oh well, my family, and the possibility of a new blender, is definitely worth it.
Question: What’s your favorite yoga pose? I like half-moon, pigeon, and headstand!
