Yesterday I taught a 45-minute Yoga class at work. I tend to teach my Yoga classes mixing a bit of Vinyasa flow along with holding poses for a number of breaths. I typically end the class with some relaxation and meditation (You can see my sample Yoga Flow workouts here and here)
Today’s Yoga class was a bit different though. It was HOT. Unfortunately the air conditioning at work was having some issues and the repair men had been working on it all day. By noon (when I taught Yoga) the air conditioning was still out. So I told the participants that today’s class would be Hot Yoga!
By the time we were flowing through a Sun Salutation, I was dripping sweat. But I actually didn’t mind it and almost felt invigorated sweating so much. The class didn’t seem to mind either and mentioned that it was a challenging class and they enjoyed it. Perhaps the AC can kick off again and we can do another session of Hot Yoga here 😉
Another Hot Workout
Hot seemed to be the theme of the day yesterday! After work I took the dogs out for a 30-minute walk-run workout and they were pooped when we got back! It was nap time immediately for Boo and Sophia.
Good thing this tired them out because I took some time to finish up the second installment of the Hunger Games, Catching Fire. I can’t get enough of this series and will probably head out this weekend to buy the third installment, Mockingjay.
Last night I had serious craving for a Chipotle burrito bowl, so I persuaded Andy with my one-of-a-kind charm to pick us up some dinner there (what a gem he is!).
Into my bowl went:
- Black Beans
- Peppers and Onions
- Sour Cream
- Tomato Salsa
- Corn Salsa
(yes, this was roughly 10lbs of food!)
I ate about half of the bowl and had some of their chips and hot salsa on the side. It hit the spot!
I packed the remainder of the bowl for lunch today at work. Along with the rest of my Chipotle, I made a colorful salad to get in some much needed veggies and nutrition.
I topped the salad with Bolthouse Farms Honey Mustard Yogurt dressing that I got at Whole Foods. This was my first time trying this brand and I really like it! It’s super creamy, yet low calorie and low fat compared to standard honey mustard dressings. I definitely recommend this dressing if you’re a honey mustard kinda’ person. Andy seems to think honey mustard is only good on chicken fingers (which it is), but I think it’s great on salads too!
A No-Plan Weekend
This weekend Andy and I have no real big plans. I guess I have no excuse not to much my laundry away (which is still sitting on my bedroom floor!). Have a great weekend!
Have you ever taken a real Hot Yoga class? I’ve yet to take a ‘real’ one in a Yoga Studio, but I’d love to!
