Hey guys. Last night at yoga, I had a little scare. We were beginning our standing poses when my ears started burning and buzzing, and I saw the sides of the room closing in. I promptly (and carefully) left the room to grab some water. I was able to finish the rest of the class but I was very careful and went about 70% intensity.
A few things: I have low blood pressure on average and I am usually dehydrated. I drink more coffee than water and coffee is a diuretic. On top of that, my meal choices lately have been less than ideal. I spent Valentine's day and the day after feasting on candy. Kyle left for Massachusetts on Wednesday and since he's been gone, I've felt a little lost and sad consequently inducing my candy coma.
THE POINT IS, (IMO) the food you eat and the fuel you put into your body directly effect how you feel.
So, last night after my not-so-steady yoga class, I prepped a delicious/nutritious dinner and downed two bottles of water. Sometimes when school gets crazy my eating habits become less smart, but I have to remember that despite being fiance-less for a couple weeks and bogged down with homework and work, I need to take care of myself.
Indulge in some self-love this weekend by skipping dinner at a restaurant and make something healthy you will enjoy and take pride in creating.
Last night's recovery feast...
Kale Chips recipe here. The other ingredients are just a few of my faves: quinoa, shrimp, black beans, with some taco spices.
Happy Friday, make it a good [and healthy] one.
