Here comes the sun, doo-dun-doo-doo. You sang that first line, didn’t you? I knew it because I totally did. As the title suggests, we finally saw the sun today!!! Yay! Can we get a hurrah for the natural provider of vitamin D? It seems like a year since we last saw the son in 2020. Mostly because each week of 2020 seems to be taking a year. Anyway, the sun has me in a Beatles inspired mood.
Speaking of which, my morning got off to a late start. I was going to wake up early to go for a walk, but my stomach was not feeling it. Clearly, I can’t afford to be non-compliant with a gluten free diet. Unfortunately, it means I really can’t eat it at all. Needless to say, I ended up sleeping later that anticipated, which means the dogs got taken out later than normal. Consequently, poor Anakin had a lake in his crate when I woke up.
I got him out of ASAP and wiped off his feet and body with a towel. Afterwards, I took him out for a walk. Naturally, he needed a bath, which the Mayor gave him after his walk. Together we cleaned up the mess while also taking care of our other two fur babies. All three of the puppies were in great moods this morning. They love to play all together. Honestly, there is not greater gift than a dog. They love unconditionally and are always happy to see you.
Despite the rocky start to the morning, I found my zen on my mat with Monica at 10. My muscles were tired today. Not sure if it was from the hard work I did in Monica’s vinyasa class Sunday or just old age. Nonetheless, it was a good class. My legs and hips definitely needed the gentle flow today as they were quite tight this morning. The gentle flow has been a great addition to my yoga practice.
Afterwards, I took a brief snack break before launching into my BBG leg workout. Significantly, these workouts have gotten a lot easier for me. Obviously, it means I’m making some great progress. Moreover, I see a lot progress in my yoga practice due to BBG. The BBG workouts have really made me strong as I’ve become more flexible. Consequently, I have a lot more mobility now than ever before. For example, in wheel I used to have discomfort in my lower back, now I only feel a great stretch on my belly.
This afternoon, I had my yoga teacher training focusing on anatomy. Fortunately, I have a pretty good understanding on anatomy courtesy of my house full of athletes (myself included.). Afterwards, I started cooking dinner, which was shiitake hoisin burgers courtesy of Blue Apron. It was very yummy. When the fridge shutoff in the middle of the night yesterday, I grieved all the meal kits that had been spoiled. Until I realized I had most of ingredients that were spoiled in the kits in my fridge. The only thing I had to buy was the meat. We also grilled some steaks since I accidentally got the meal kit for two this week. Whoops!
