The Salad Case: Case-less

Workout: 20 min run + 25 min Yufit yoga flow

I got myself to sleep early, but then the BB started crying in these weird outbursts. When I went to check on her, my poor munchkin's arm was hanging through the slots of her crib. She couldn't turn herself around and kept waking herself up. She looked too cute and the problem was quickly remedied!

I woke up somewhat refreshed and ready to start my new February 2012 Challenge!

I think the new challenge will help fight off the boredom *I hope* because if you can’t tell from that last week of my January one, I was getting a bit bored!

I'm also hoping taking different yufit classes will help fight off the boredom. Today's Yufit yoga was good. Again, definitely not as "yogi" as yogaglo, but still a good workout. I enjoyed that the instructor kept bringing me back to one flow, then she'd branch off to separate poses. It made me feel strong!

I did notice that the streaming of the video was a bit blockier than yogaglo, but it didn't impact my workout at all so it won't be a deciding factor on which site I choose to stay with.

Back  to my February Challenge, you may notice I also added a fourth no-sugar added day. I had to. The weekends have been all-out sugar consumption and yesterday was no exception.

That Sugar is a tricky little one and last week I was ok, but then started having some graham crackers each night. Then added some chocolate on my "no-sugar" days, then a second coffee on those same days, then... See a pattern?

Today, I'm making another stand and am going to really focus. How do you deal with sugar?

The salad cases help me some, but today's salad case was a no-show. I had leftovers from last Friday and still have one case left from last week, so I won't be making any more cases until Wednesday.

Tonight’s dinner was another one-pot wonder, luv those!
