Yoga is all about what you put into it.
You can make each and every yoga class a walk in the park. You can day dream your way through it and do the bare minimum.
Or you can push yourself further into every pose, stretching your muscles and making your body work.
Today I pushed myself and it was definitely a workout.
I’ll be 100 percent honest when I say that I used to think yoga was not a work out. I now know I wasn’t pushing myself and I wasn’t immersing myself in the stretches and sun salutations. Yoga is not the same kind of workout as a BodyPump class or intervals on the treadmill, but it is a workout.
After yoga and a long walk with Sadie, I was more than ready for a cold breakfast!
I made myself an apple yogurt bowl by combining the following:
- Vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 sliced Granny Smith apple (the other half went into my mouth)
- 1 c. cooked Flax-Z-Snax butter pecan hot cereal
- Three dashes nutmeg
I love the serious staying power that I get from a breakfast that combines high-protein Greek yogurt, whole grains and fresh fruit.
Question of the Morning
It’s an open-ended one…
What are your thoughts on yoga? Love it? Hate it? Think it’s a bunch of boo-hockey? Think it’s life-changing?
