Thursday Latelies 10.27.2011 [not a video!]

Thursday Latelies used to be posts where I shared, via video, a few things I was loving for the week. This week I’m not feeling a video but I wanted to share some things anyway. I’ve been alluding to various changes in my life these last few posts so here we go!

I mentioned this once before, but never really talked about it again – Bobby and I moved across town to a bigger, newer apartment and we couldn’t be happier. Things were shaky at first (aren’t they always) but I have gotten to love my new space. Here are some pics. I haven’t quite finished arranging so maybe these will be “before” pictures.

(I think I can mostly fix what he did – stupid cat thought the chair was a new scratching post. Also, I just noticed in this picture – he is certainly looking slimmer than he used to!)

Pose of the Week – Utkatasa; Dig INN!

Yoga teacher training is going well. It sure is exhausting though, to have no break between the workweek, training, another workweek, another training… whew. I am thankful for the break I’ll get this coming weekend. In the meantime, I took it easy today.

I’ve been meaning to share this yummy lunch that I had my first weekend of training. It was from the newly re-named Dig Inn (formerly known as The Pump Energy Food). So this is:

dig inn Pose of the Week   Utkatasa; Dig INN!

1) choice protein: lemon chicken

2) grains or greens: mixed greens

3) fresh sides: balsamic mushrooms, red cabbage slaw, indian spiced carrots

And I believe the sauce I got was the roasted red pepper, which has almonds (or some other nut) in it.

Delicious. I got a full size and finished it but I think I could have made do with less – I was way too full afterwards! (I’m still working on this “moderation” thing.)
