Yoga Monday

Ah….why don’t I do yoga more often?

I really wanted to go for a run today, but it was 30 degrees when we got home and windy – no thanks. Instead, I got dinner started then went downstairs and did an hour of a full class download. This one was free to try and the whole thing was about 1 hr and 20 minutes. I needed to check on dinner so I stopped right around an hour, but it was starting to wind down at that point, so it was a good place to stop.

I feel so good! I know I love yoga, but it’s hard for me to find the motivation to do it on my own at home. I really liked this podcast, so I’ll definitely have to try some more. My arms are so sore! Lots of downward facing dog, plank, and chatarunga (is that how you spell it?).


Dinner tonight started with this soup mix



This is from the awesome Dayton market near Nick’s parents house – they sell tons of cool stuff and it’s so affordable! I always buy stuff when we go there, and this is one of my favorite soup mixes yet.



For this soup, I used:

  • 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1.5 cups soup mix
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt, pepper


Pretty easy to make, too! I just cooked the veggies, added the turkey, and then added everything else and let it simmer while I was doing yoga.

I came upstairs, stirred it and ate!

With a slice of my homemade whole wheat bread  :)
