You know you’re an addict when…

… 60 minutes of power yoga feels like a short session.

Yesterday’s free yoga podcast was a 90-minute class with Philip Urso (Salt Pond Yoga) but I only had time to do the first 60 minutes.  I did my own ending (headstand to savasana).  The class I took was called “High Power SPY Vinyasa” and can be found by searching “Yoga classes – Baptiste Power Vinyasa” in iTunes.

Yesterday’s oatmeal was the usual heart-healthy serving of oats:



  • 3/4 cup dry oats, 1.5 cups water
  • salt, cinnamon, stevia
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (added at the end)
  • sliced Asian pear
  • blueberries


I decided to take a break from power yoga this morning and instead I just walked to the grocery store to pick up some necessities (yogurt, lime and lemon juice, syrup).  I will probably do some Ashtanga on my own this afternoon.

I made a great find at Trader Joe’s the other day – vanilla mini meringue cookies.  There is 1 calorie per meringue.  One serving is 100 minis!  The tub comes with 5 servings, and it was gone in two days.


This afternoon I have to go out looking for the last component to my Secret Cupid present, but that’s the only thing I have planned so far.  What is the weather like where you are?  Here in Mountain View it’s a cloudy and cool 57 degrees, but the forecast for today claims that it will get up to 70F.  I don’t believe it though!

    You’re going to regret asking about the weather in NJ. Yesterday it was in the 50s and I had my sunroof open and no coat on. I went out at 5 am this morning and there was 3 inches of snow on the ground…at least it wasn’t the typical Jersey mix — snow, ice, sleet, slush and I made it to Yoga OK. Btw, I love the way you artfully arranged your oats and fruit (and much admired wooden spoon)

    I’ve got to try that bigger serving of oats!!!

    I love the mini meringues! I treat ’em like mini marshmallows and put them in cocoa or on top of chocolate pudding, or mix ’em with chocolate chips and graham crackers for a little smores mix. Yum, I need to get some!!!

    Your oats look so pretty!

    It’s cold here in Winnipeg. Just cold.

    I feel the same way about walking as you do about yoga 🙂

    It was cold and sunny here in New Jersey!

    I’ve had those meringues. I thought they would make perfect hot choclate toppers.

    I know exactly what you’re talking about! My yoga classes at home are 90 minutes, at school they’re 75, so whenever I do a 60 minute class it feels like nothing! Once I tried one of the 20 minute free downloads and have no idea how that is enough yoga for anyone!
