One of the best things about yoga (if not THE best), is that after each practice, you really do grow and you really do transcend into a higher self. You become enlightened by your own abilities and the miracles of your amazing body. You learn, you discover a lot about yourself, and you gain a great deal of humility. When all of this radiates from ourselves, we put peace into our lives and into the lives of those around us.
1) Pull-up bars with the beau.
The things he does with that bar, ugh…I hate him, haha. It is such a great tool for increasing upper-body strength!
2) Yoga, too.
He’s a jiu-jitsu ninja, my love. He’s practiced martial arts since the age of seven and he is currently a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. So it’s safe to say, he’s a BAMF. I’m so proud of him. He is such a source of inspiration for me in many ways, especially when it comes to keeping active and eating healthy. Not to mention, he is the most zen freaking person ever. I don’t understand how he does it sometimes! But anywho, last night marked the beginning of his yoga journey :) I am so excited for him. He finally asked me to teach him yoga. He’s never done yoga before, and so we started off very slowly and very basic. We worked on the breath, and the union of breath and movement. I took him through an easy and simplified Surya Namaskara. In the end, he loved it so much and was so impressed by how “cool” it was. How lucky of him to have his own private yoga instructor, pshhhh…haha :P
Went for a short coffee and green tea latte run…iced for me! I love matcha, mmmm :9 Baked some Triscuits with almond pepperjack cheese, to snack on during the movie. Made some frozen smoothies (because he was craving ice cream), strawberries, blueberries, vanilla almond milk, and vanilla soy protein powder.
4) The Grey
Good ass movie and Liam Neeson is the shit. That’s it.
The weekend is young, y’all! Please have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend :) And if it’s okay with you, take the time to remember a fallen solider or even thank one.
