This morning I decided to change things up from my usual yoga practice and put in the Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown DVD that came from Netflix. Wow! That girl really knows how to make you feel the burn! Good thing cause it is chilly today. I really needed something to warm me up since I had the pleasure of waking up to this right outside my door:
Typical Montana Spring! As soon as my flowers start to bloom they get buried, poor little things.
My breakfast that followed was all about warm comfort food. I mixed 2 Tbsp of cranberry ginger Chia Goodness cereal with 1 Tbsp scottish oats, 1/3 cup of vanilla hemp milk then topped it off with cranberries and my new ginger syrup to sweeten the deal.
The only thing I’d do different next time is add some cinnamon. I think this is the first breakfast in forever that didn’t get sprinkle with the stuff. I’ve even been known to add it to my scrambled eggs 🙂 (hey, I never claimed to be normal).
Between the power yoga class I taught last night and the Yoga Meltdown DVD I decided on the perfect pose of the day. A little challenging but fun!
Yoga Pose of the Day: Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana (Standing Split) This pose stretches the entire leg while strengthening the calves and ankles and improving balance. And don’t worry if your leg isn’t up above your head, anywhere off the floor is great!
