I’ve had a good week this week both in terms of my eating and exercising. I’ve been really concentrating on eliminating dairy products from my diet (you can read this post for the back story on that), and on eating a lot of greens and mushrooms, With the exception of last night, I’ve done well!
Last night I had a wonderful dinner at Grissini Italian Bistro in Kennebunkport, Maine. It was very rich (butter) and wasn’t within my new diet plan, but it was good, it included mushrooms (in the butter sauce) and I didn’t eat too much nor did I have dessert!
I also managed to get in two runs and two yoga classes this week. The runs were great. It is a bit painful to get back into running, but it feels good. Running makes me feel strong and I feel like I am strengthening my heart and increasing my lung capacity.
Yoga makes me feel powerful. It strengthens my body and calms my “inner voice” — you know that annoying internal dialogue that holds us back. Plus the physical stretching of yoga is a great compliment to running. It stretches out all the things that running tightens — hamstrings, hip flexors, lower back and glutes!
