So we made it through January!
What do you think?
Is 2013 all that you wanted it to be???
I hope so! If not, there is plenty of time to get started on your new year’s intentions! I woke up this morning to another sunny day with a fresh coat of snow covering my car. The first thought that ran through my head was…I wish I had snow shoes! I would go again this morning exploring the forest preserve by our house.
Instead, I headed off to my weekly Hot Yoga class. I stayed up late watching the Indiana Victory last night, so I didn’t make it to my usual 10am class. As I was walking in for the 11:30 class, I bumped into my Mom and a friend who had just finished their class. It was fun to chat about yoga and homemade energy bars, and my Mom mentioned that she was jealous that she missed yesterday’s snow shoeing adventure.
After class, the BOY and I made a quick run to the crazy crowded grocery store. Being that it is Superbowl Sunday, I was not in the least surprised. We are spending the evening at my best friend’s house and had a few last minute things to pick up. It is no secret that I am a huge fan of football, and even though I have no strong feelings about the winner of tonight’s game, I am looking forward to a good match. It is tough to talk Superbowl without bringing up food, so I want to refer you to THIS POST dedicated to football food and the 2012 Beer Bowl.
I did make hummus and a new dip for tonight (pictured above with recipe to come). However, we are doing something a little different. We are straying away from traditional football food and having Indian food for dinner. My best friend and I have been talking about getting together for Indian for weeks, so we thought it would be fun to combine the two events.
It occurred to me this morning that it is already February, and therefore, time to reflect on the previous month.
I spent a bunch of time in the kitchen whipping up some healthy recipes…
Along with a few sweet Treats…
I didn’t write any specific goals for January, but really just tried to find balance, stay centered and stress free, and return to a healthier lifestyle mentally and physically. So far, I’d say that I am on the right track, and look forward to carrying this good feeling on to February.
-Sign up for the Chicago Marathon
-Try some classes (ie Bikram yoga)
-Avoid added sugars, fake sugars, and high fructose corn sugar
-Maintain work/life balancec
