Tonight,per usual, I was running around gathering all of my things for yoga and struggling to get out the door in time. As it turned out I made it in time but with only minutes to spare, as per usual. In an effort to make small talk I mentioned how I was late and unprepared.
One of the yoga instructors told me I needed to be nicer to myself and that in the grand scheme of things it wasnt a big deal. That thought stuck with me throughout class, and even now Im still kind of taken by it.
You mean I dont need to be my own biggest critic? I dont need to stand in yoga class and compare my poses to everyone elses? I dont have to be the best at everything?
It sounds so easy to not compare or to cut yourself a break, but sometimes you really need a reminder to bring you back to Earth. Are you your biggest critic? Do you constantly play the compare and contrast game? Do you get down on yourself when you make petty mistakes?
Yesterday for breakfast, I had one of the best bowls of cereal ever. Yes, I said ever. It contained:
- Kashi Go Lean Crunch
- Vanilla Soy Milk
- A green anjou pear
- TJs Almond Butter
Do you measure out a serving size for your cereal? Cereal is one of the only things that I actually pull out a measuring spoon for, mostly becasue its so easy to go overboard on (hello, GrapeNuts!?) and because it prevents me from grabbing a casual handful. Do you measure your cereal, or anything else for that matter? I do have a scale on my counter, but it rarely gets used.
Snack & Lunch
I took a picture of my snack before I headed to work, but only ended up eating the Fage. It may not be Chobani, but it is still tasty!
I had a quickly lunch consisting of a Cara Cara Orange. Am I new to life, or are these grapefruit colored inside? And a WW sandwich thin with a slice of pepperjack & some roasted red peppers & zucchini.
I ended up having the most boring dinner ever, it consisted of a slice of leftover Potato & Rosemary Pizza & a side salad.
Romaine, red onion, red pepper. Dressed with:
Note the mentioned scale in back & some 2 year old artwork.
Slice o’ pie:
Dessert made up for a leftover meal though. I had another Go Lean Cluster. If you havent made these yet…you should!
Dog lovers, this is for you.
And a weekly dose of Ollie:
