My new favorite thing is lunch-hour yoga! After working away at my desk for hours, it is such a nice break to step away for an hour and come back refreshed. Since the studio is only a couple minutes from my house, and the noon class in just an hour (instead of the usual 75 minutes), I am away from the house for less than an hour and a half – just like a long lunch.
I set the same intention pretty much every class – to push everything out of my mind and just be present in the class. All too often I find myself thinking about what I have to do after yoga rather than what I am doing at that moment. I find this especially important and challenging in the noon class. I am smack-dab in the middle of doing a million things, but stepping away leaves me energized and ready to get back to it.
After yoga I enjoyed a bowl of “faux” pasta. Roasted Spaghetti Squash topped with sauteed onions, garlic, asparagus, mushrooms and tomatoes. I had never tried spaghetti squash until a couple weeks ago and I really like it! The texture is so fun.
And check out the nutrition – hello potassium! So good after sweaty yoga!
Happy December! December goals coming soon!
