I started my Thursday with one of my presents from Kristina. A packet of Spark mixed in to a smoothie made with:
I'm out of spinach or that would have gone in there too. Wow, this was sweet tasting! I think next time I'd use only half the packet. I have to say- this stuff has a good dose of caffeine. I didn't need any coffee and I was pretty energized all day. I liked it.
Later on, in the afternoon at work, I also broke out a Skout Bar that Kristina sent me. It was blueberry almond flavored and kind of reminded me of a Larabar only with oatmeal in it. Yummy!
That held me over til my yoga class. I went to Hot Vinasya taught by Sarah! I met her a while back at the studio, but had yet to take one of her classes. It was great. I was a hot mess by the end as usual. It's probably been almost a month since I was last on the mat, so it felt really good to stretch out. I didn't know how tight I was. I think it'll help with up coming runs :)
I actually met Katie there for class. She suggested meeting for yoga and then wanted to treat me to dinner after to thank me for cat sitting for her a couple weeks ago. So sweet of her :)
We showered and then headed to Blu Basil for dinner.
I had a Napa Salad, which included:
Fresh spring greens, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts and gorgonzola cheese topped with our elegant champagne vinaigrette dressing. The description pretty much had me at the mention of gorganzola. Love that stuff! I topped it with grilled chicken.
It was quite delicious :)
Later on I got home to find Greg and Clyde hanging out.
Earlier between work and yoga I had made a quick stop in to Target for a couple things. I found Clyde a Halloween costume.
What do you think?
Um, Mom, why am I wearing this??
Is it wrong that I pretty much laughed hysterically for about 5 minutes watching him with this on??
I really can't wait to parade him around in public with it on either...
