Change of Plans…Roll with it!
I woke up ridiculously early on Sunday morning after a horrible nights sleep; drank a lot of coffee; put my yoga clothes on; drove to the studio; and then GOSH DARN IT I totally showed up at the wrong time! I was pretty mad, because I was looking forward to the class and planned my day around it. Instead of being Miss Cranky Pants about the situation, I figured this is a sign that I should be outside on another beautiful NJ day…The weather this weekend has been breathtaking and lots of sunshine = Happy Katie! I decided instead to take the 4:00 PM yoga class to close the weekend off with a much needed detoxifying stretch session. And was it detoxifying….picture posted below. HA! For breakfast, I whipped up a delicious Mango and Strawberry Protein Pancake with Almond Butter…YUM! And had another cup of coffee…I did hydrate with a lot of water after all of this coffee consumption. HA!
- 1 scoop Whey Protein
- 1 whole egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 T unsweetened almond milk
- 2 T water
- 1 T chia seeds
- Handful of strawberries and sliced mango
- 1 “heaping” T of almond butter
I laid out in the backyard and tried to work on my tan before Memorial Day weekend, while Kala rolled around and did her thing…Picked up some beautiful herbs and flowers at The Farm! Fresh basil and mint, with lots of colorful flowers to add to the mix as well. I don’t have a green thumb, but I’m working on it. Excited to use the fresh mint this summer for mojitos as well…YUMMY!Hit up the yoga studio and actually made it to the right class! The sweat was pouring out of my pores and it was EXACTLY what I needed for my mood and my hips. Thanks Emma for an awesome sweat session #PROOF! Enjoyed a delicious dinner of super fresh lettuce from a friend’s garden…a quiet evening with Kala…and possibly some bad reality TV mixed in there as well. I hope everyone had a awesome weekend and was able to spend most of it in the sun. Oh and how could I forget this conversation with my Mom this afternoon as I was helping her move a table:
Mom: “Do you know that your veins and muscles are popping out? Your arms look like Madonna’s arms!”
Katie: “Yes Mom I know my veins and biceps are popping out!”
Mom: “Do you want them to look like that?”
Katie: “Yes Mom!” HA!
