Hey, hey! How’s November starting off for everyone today? Super awesome, hopefully!?
So by around 10:30 this morning, my stomach was growwwwwling. Apparently breakfast didn’t do as well today as it did yesterday, so I fixed myself a quick snack.
Another bowl of cottage cheese with fresh pineapple and strawberries. Mmmm, love it.
Shortly after that, I broke up the morning with a nice and easy, 3-mile treadmill walk.
Today happens to be one of my slower days, in terms of client training plans and blog stuff, so I made sure to get myself away from the monotony of sitting at the computer all morning and got up and moving.
A little bit later, I fixed myself a little something for lunch…errrr, breakfast?
I couldn’t help it. A corn English muffin with pumpkin + PB + pumpkin butter + banana + chia seeds just sounded better than anything else I could have come up with.
Hey, when the craving strikes, right?
I’ll try to work on getting some veggies in this afternoon (they haven’t quite been on top of the priority list the past couple of days for some reason), but I’m not making any promises.
I am, however, suddenly reeeeeeally in the mood to hit up Starbucks today, for no other reason except for the fact that I keep seeing the red holiday cups are back…

Why, oh why, do I get so sucked in to marketing ploys like this? Please tell me I’m not the only one?!
Alright, my friends. We are no longer in October, so you know what that means…
October Yoga Challenge – Final Recap!
Can you believe it? The October Yoga Challenge has officially come to a close. Compared to my challenge in June, I wouldn’t say that I had my best showing this month. Here’s a quick rundown…
My Challenge (final week and a half): Do 3 yoga sessions for the week
Actual: 2 yoga sessions complete
- 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme Yoga DVD – 40 minutes
- 10lb. Slimdown Yoga DVD – 20 minutes
Even after giving myself a week and a half to complete my final challenge, I still fell short. I don’t know what happened, but my desire and motivation to do yoga this month sort of trailed off. I suppose I could chalk it up to a few up and down weeks, or from the quick re-introduction to running that took over for a bit. But honestly, I just wasn’t feelin’ it.
But hey, you know what? It totally happens to the best of us, so I’m really not worried about it how things went. I still plan to do yoga when I feel like it…not because I feel like I have to do it, and I still really need to get my butt to a yoga class and use that Groupon a bought (still haven’t made it out).
I’m sure a few weeks from now, I’ll probably wind up all “OMG I love yoga and want to do it all the tiiiiime” again. But for now, I’m content with a few sessions here or there.
I’m really excited to see how all of you did with the completion of your challenge (hopefully a bit better than me!) so feel free to link up and share!
