I’m just a yoga lovin’ gal

Hi girls! Happy Monday :)

I was up bright and early to go babysit for a few hours. I will be doing these early morning jobs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for a while, which is fine by me…I need to make some dolla bills…especially after ordering some Amazing Grass!!! I finally gave up and ordered some…I can’t wait to try it out and review it!

After babysitting, I grabbed my yoga mat and did a mini yoga sesh from called A.M. Yoga. I really liked this one! I gotta give a shout-out to my girl, Jenny, because I found this awesome site through her blog. THANK YOU!! I am in love with this site now! :)

I have decided that I want to have more yoga in my life. It really makes me feel incredible every single time that I do it. I feel refreshed, calm, positive, and happy. I am slowly learning more poses but really am rather a yoga newbie. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Do you do yoga? What is your favorite thing about it?

After some yoga, I was feeling pretty good and energized so I decided to hop on the treadmill (because it’s already SO hot outside!) and do some incline walking. It was a great little workout and I happily sang along with my Ipod the whole time :)

For breakfast I was craving a yogurt mess…and here is what I came up with:


  • Greek yogurt
  • grapes
  • sliced bing cherries
  • sliced figs
  • kashi go lean crunch
  • a few Quaker oatmeal squares
  • a scoop of Naturally More


I have to show you my new plate that I found yesterday at Walgreens while I was waiting to pick up some picture prints:


A flower plate!!! I think it is so adorable. The best part is that each petal is like an individual space, so I can fit my veggies, crackers, hummus, etc all on there. Love it!

I have also gotten around to eating a few new bars that I receive a while back in a bar swap with the lovely Meg!

This pic was taken with my phone, so it is a bit fuzzy…the bar was absolutely delicious! It is a Luna cookie and cream bar:


And a Think Thin Brownie Crunch:


I really enjoyed both of these bars. I am especially a huge fan of Think products and absolutely love the Think Thin creamy peanut butter flavor, so I was excited to try a new flavor. I really liked this brownie crunch one and it will definitely take care of any chocolate craving you may be having. ;) My heart is still with the creamy peanut butter flavor, but this one is a close 2nd.

Do you want to see what prints I was picking up at Walgreens??? Here is my newest decoration in my room:


These are pictures that I have taken on various trips and vacations. I really love it in my room…it takes me away on a mini vacation in my mind every time I look at it. :)

And now I off to have some lunch and then leave for my post-surgery appointment. I hope everything goes well!!

I will leave you this a Jaci picture…when I came home from babysitting, I went to the back yard to let Jaci inside. Apparently she has found a new hobby for digging in the garden. She tried not to act suspicious but there was no hiding it:


BUSTED…by all the dirt that was clung to her nose. Oh, Jaci…

I hope you all have a terrific Monday! :D

Love, Kristi

    I agree, I need more yoga in my life, too! It'so calming. And it's like a detox.
