What I Ate: September 28, 2010

I overslept this morning, but other than that, I feel like I'm beginning to formulate a routine that will make sense. I intended to get up at 5, but didn't roll out of bed until 6:30! I actually think it will be fine if I wake up at 5:30 or 5:45; I should still have an hour of cardio that way.
  • Cinnamon cappucino protein frosty (well, more like a slushie - Inspire cinnamon cappucino tastes great but isn't thick enough to create a real frosty base without SF/FF pudding mix)
  • About 3 T half and half in decaf coffees
  • About 1 oz. almonds and 1 oz. cashews
  • Another ounce of cashews
  • 1 small roasted delicata squash seasoned simply with salt and herbs de provence
  • Pistachio-chocolate protein frosty

It was a vegetarian day! Not even on purpose; I am just ambivalent about meat most days.

Exercise today was 33 minutes on the elliptical and a 75-minute beginner yoga class at Quiet Mind Yoga in Columbia Heights. The class was decent. It's no City Yoga, but I liked it better than some random classes I've attended in other places. The class was a little slow-paced for my tastes, but that was expected because it was a beginner class. I deliberately chose a beginner class so I could get a better sense of what the studio was about at its most basic level. The jury is still out; there are lots of other classes to try with my nifty 2 weeks of unlimited yoga for a meager $20. And there are other studios I want to try, including an Anusara studio in Takoma Park/Silver Spring. But so far, thumbs up on Quiet Mind.
