I was finally able to make it to yoga this week for my makeup class 🙂 I am much more calm now… i’m loving yoga’s effect on me. I’m really hoping that this weekend when I visit my boyfriend I can get to some yoga classes. His mom owns a fitness and yoga studio, and her partner who does all of the yoga is amazing. I’m hoping to at least be able to get to one class! She teaches the hardest strength training class everrrr… i took it once and was sore for almost a whole week. My entire body. I think its only during the week though, so i won’t be able to make it. I don’t know how she does it! shes awesome.
I snacked on a cool mint chocolate cliff bar this afternoon so I would be able to make it through until dinner around 8:30. It was AWESOME! A little while ago I wasn’t really a fan of cliff bars, and I didn’t like their texture. But i have grown to love them. They have some rocking flavors, and this is up there with them!
I was stuck in traffic for a while today after work, with the bad weather and all. It took about 3 times as long to get home as it should have. When I was just getting to my house, the sun was setting and you could finally see the sun for the first time today! it was so gray and dreary all day, and the sky looked so beautiful. Makes you thankful and appreciate everything a little more seeing something so pretty. I couldn’t snatch a great picture with my iphone, but i grabbed the best one i could take so I could show it to you guys 🙂
Dinner after yoga was some chinese soup! This had shrimp, poached tilapia fillet, spinach, scallions, some rice, and my FAVORITE asian ingredient… king oyster mushrooms!!! I don’t know if many of you know about these mushrooms, but if you like the taste of a mushroom please rush to the closest asian market and buy some NOW! These are absolutely huge and are the meatiest mushroom ever. They are amazing to stirfry with, and really to add to any type of broth based soup. You just chop them up and cook them! They are the beige looking thing in my soup by the shrimp haha. I don’t think you can get them at the regular grocery store, i’m not sure. But I know that you can get them at the asian store for cheap. I really could eat these mushrooms every day. Just a little something new to put out there!
Here’s a pic of them so you can have an idea of what they look like. Monsters!
I’m off to read more of Eat, Pray, Love. I get reallllllly tired when i start to read at night, and usually pass out. That was the story of my life in college. As soon as I would start studying, i would somehow lay down, then somehow fall asleep. My friends would always take pictures as proof that I was “studying”. Well, I’m not getting very far. I’m about half way done, but my girl Amber started the book around exactly the same time as me, and finished! i need to get my gears going!
This is the result of me trying to study. As you can see, this is why I’m only half way done with the book 😛 I think this picture was taken my junior year as I was studying for an art history exam. hahaaa
