It’s almost time for the weekend, and I’m lucky to be home again visiting my parents. I got in yesterday afternoon in time to meet my mom for a bite at our favorite local grocery store in the west end.
Look who I caught sneaking a sample.
You know she wasn’t the only one. I always enjoy perusing and sampling the aisles of health food stores.
I tried to talk her into an exotic tofu wrap, but she wasn’t having it, so we sat down to feast on a curry chicken salad wrap.
After a fun evening last night, I hit the gym this morning for Body Flow (a combination of Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates) and Ultimate Fitness (an ACAC class taught by Vicki that kicks your butt).
I be up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness, you’re my witness.
Would you believe this cool shot was me falling out of a headstand?
I like combining hard physical workouts with challenging mental workouts. Body Flow allowed me time today to check in, pause and practice mindfulness.
Even though I love an intense sweaty workout, I always try to leave time for meditation, savasana and being a child, or sitting like one anyway.
When my mind races in a flexibility class, I attempt to reach for more rigorous poses, like crow.
It’s important to always balance out our exercise routines.
After a re-energizing workout, I met my mom for lunch at Caffe Espresso.
We didn’t have any fun.
My mother is a fan of consistency, so we went with our favorite Genovese panini, a freshly baked focaccia filled with oven roasted turkey, pesto and provolone, served with a side of sea salt chips.
…in moderation of course.
Have a great weekend!
