Hello all. First of all thank you so much for my birthday greetings, means alot. Love, love coming your way.xxx
Today’s Raw Munchings
Well my hubby treated me this morning to a smoothie in bed (well futon). Orange juice, strawberries, maca and flaxseed oil. A simple combination yet really wakens your cells and muscles giving you that morning kick.
As I write this I’m drinking a green smoothie – is obviously smoothie day for me. maybe in my old age I’m getting too lazy to chew..hahaha!!! Again nothing to out of the ordinary for this smoothie, but hits that afternoon spot to get me through the rest of the day; lettuce, spinach, ashitaba, tomatoes and avocado.
Viola!!!! And look what’s sitting behind it!
The tomatoes really add sweetness to a green smoothie and the ashitaba gives it a kick similar to coriander.
I haven’t done a practice today, but I have a vinyasa and restorative class this evening. Restorative is such a devine way to end the day, letting your muscles relax, your body surrendering. If you get the chance to attend such a class near you I highly recommend it. It’s also a good way to get your body used to moving if you are recovery from an injury or operation.
I am happy to report that I have been accepted on the Yoga Thailand teacher training course later this year. I will be heading back to my sanctuary in November for 5 weeks to work towards my 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification. I received the news last Wednesday, a lovely, early birthday present. There is alot of preperation required for this course, but my current studies will obviously support this.
Just to finish off today, I went shopping this morning. Now, one of my birthday pressies was a wonderful shopping bag with an elephant and the word ‘Happy’ on it. Lovely and colorful. My yoga teacher got it me as she said I am always happy and I make her happy. She wrote a most touching message in her card that brought tears to my eyes.
Back to the bag, it got used this morning with all the produce I purchased and here’s a photo. You can see the bag in the back
Oh, and here’s a pic of my kitty cat eating her greens. Good kitty….
