Have you ever seen the movie Office Space? One of my favorite lines from that film is “It looks like you’ve got a case of the Mondays”. I was definitely having a tough time transitioning back into the work week yesterday, but I tried to have a productive day nonetheless. I started off with the usual coffee, an entire plastic container of organic raspberries (why do raspberries come in such little boxes??), an Oikos vanilla greek yogurt with a Tbs of PB2 mixed in, and a handful of Nate’s olive oil granola.
At 5:30pm I busted loose from the office and headed to 38th street to meet Katie for hot yoga. I was one sweaty mess today! I think doing yoga regularly is very good for my muscles/tendons, but I was definitely feeling the effects of doing heated yoga on the hottest day of the year. During the Warrior sequence, the sweat was dripping off my arms like a waterfall. Too much information? On the walk to my gym (for a much needed shower!), I bought a Powerade and drank that along with my 2 bottles of plain water. I also had some baby carrots as a snack on the subway ride home.
I spent the rest of the evening in my air-conditioned bedroom (ahhhh) with a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream and ice water.
Around 10pm I started to feel better (hydration success!) and my hunger kicked in. I ended the night with a bowl of Kashi GLC Honey Almond Flax with skim milk.
