Happy Tuesday ❤
There are a few things that I am so excited for:
Foodbuzz Festival. NEXT FRIDAY! I have never been to the west coast before and have always wanted to. I am so happy that I decided to make the big step and go. Now I get to meet all my blog friends in real life and couldn’t be more excited! We’ve all gotten together and figured out our schedules, and runs and yoga to add into the weekend. I’m going to need to empty out my camera, i’ll be taking lots of pics.
Fitbloggin’ ’10 conference. Right smack dab in my hometown 🙂 The hotel the conference is actually going to be held in is the hotel that we had my senior prom in. It’s about 1/4 of a mile from my work! There are tons of ladies going to this one, and I feel like more will keep on piling in.
POTM Challenge. Bobbi and Caitlin’s pile on the miles challenge ’09. This starts Nov 1 and is a way to motivate us to keep moving in the months that are well known for feasting. I tend to become a wimp when it gets colder, but I just need to layer and get myself out there.
There’s so much blog love lately, its been amazing!
So last night I went to my fav hot vinyasa class at the studio. It’s held by Camille, and she knows how to kick your ass. I love how she pushes you when you don’t think you can do it. Right near the end of the class she told everyone to go ahead and go into headstand, handstand or nothing if you don’t want to do them. Everyone got into their positions and I sat their kind of clueless. She asked if anyone needed help and I raised my hand. She swore that I had done one before, and believed that I had the strength to do it. I’ve only once ever gone into a headstand and it was against a wall, with the instructor holding me. I was scared to do it in the middle of a room where I could easily tumble over. She stood by me and showed me the proper positioning so I didn’t get hurt, and then told me to try it. I got up! I thanked her for helping me up, but she said she didn’t hold me, she just stood there just in case. It was a crazy feeling being able to do something that I thought was so far advanced that I’d never be able to accomplish it. It still makes me nervous, but at least I know now how to practice so that I can keep getting better. My muscles are screaming at me today, so I know that I worked them well 🙂
So yesterday I came home for lunch and wasn’t exactly sure of what to eat. I ended up throwing some random ingredients together and came up with a delicious combo! Tofu, chickpeas and bbq sauce went into the pan. I got them nice and heated up. I toasted a pita and put a slice of pepperjack cheese into it, added some hummus then threw in the mix in the pan. Added a few slices of banana peppers and it was delicious! I’ll be making it again today for sure.
Well today i’m planning on either a yoga class or a run outside depending on the weather. If i go for a run i’m going to try and take Eden and see how she does. I’ve run with her a few times for a block or two and she seems to enjoy it, but she always loves to sniff and wander so we’ll see. I’d love it if we could run together. get both my run in, and tire her out and get her walk in. Crossing my fingers!
