Happy National Chocolate Day and a Great Yoga Class.

Today is National Chocolate Day! Any excuse to eat chocolate is good for me. Eric and I celebrated with our favorite dark chocolate peanut butter cups after we made tacos for dinner, which is our go to dinner. Easy and delicious!
Did you know I used to hate chocolate? Well I thought I hated it but then I discovered real, dark chocolate and I changed my mind. Now I'm obsessed. I crave it way too much. I crave it almost as much as I do kombucha. :)

This morning I woke up early to get a short run in before work. I hate waking up early these days but I always have a better day when I exercise first thing, so it's worth it. Even if it's a short sesh. This morning I ran for 25 minutes and finished off with some stretching, planking, and foam rolling. After a busy Monday at work, I was able to make it to my favorite primary series yoga class. I was 10 minutes late but it was still was a great hour and 20 minutes and I totally fell asleep in savasana. Sigh...

I felt very tight in my legs in the class. I even had to use a yoga block and modify a few postures. Usually when I feel weak in a yoga class, I don't have as good of an experience when I'm feeling strong but today's practice was awesome! I think it was because I was feeling mentally strong and focused on the breath and postures instead of what I was gonna eat for dinner or what I was gonna be for Halloween (which I still can't decide) and that focus allowed for me to get closer to the purpose of yoga - unite mind, body and spirit, and that's the whole reason I practice!
Oh hey pretty red tree! This is my view each morning when I make my protein shake or eggs. The fall colors this year are amazing!

Happy Fitnessing!
