Good FREEZIN’ cold last day of January lovelies!
I just got in from gettin’ my downward dog on at The Yoga Outlet! Tonight Jay was all about opening the hips and stretching out the lower and upper back. I love taking yoga here because it isn’t taken SO SERIOUSLY. Some of these poses were HARD but people weren’t showing off. There were sounds of huffing and puffing and a few laughs here and there. We were are all in the same boat together and working our our kinks to the best of our abilities. It’s inspiring really. It takes away all the intimidating factors that yoga can sometimes have!
It inspired me to take on The Yoga Outlet’s 28 Day Yoga Challenge! You are challenged to practice yoga everyday, even if it is at home for five minutes. As a bonus Jay is offering unlimited yoga for the month (there will be classes everyday) for 50 bucks!
Tomorrow I begin!
TODAY though marks the beginning of the T4G Saint John Office SIT UP Waistline Challenge. This week we are challenged to do 50 sit-ups per day EVERYDAY. Next week is 75 per day and then 100 per day for the last two weeks. It is going to be intense but I am very excited to see what kind of results I see!
In honor of the yoga challenge I decided to whip up a healthy Indian dish that I have been dying to figure out a recipe for!
Butternut Squash Chana Masala!
Once the onion is browned up nicely, add 1/2 cup of crushed tomatoes, 1 tbs of the garam masala spice, 1 tsp of cumin, 1 tsp of coriander and fry until it forms a paste. It only takes about 4-5 minutes.
I was really pleased with how it turned out. I didn’t add more than a 1/2 tsp of salt to finish and I don’t even think it needed that. You could easily spice the recipe up quite easily. It is SUPER healthy and packs about 18g of protein per 1.5c serving! It is also totally, awesomely vegan!
Grilled Banana Sanni coming up tomorrow!!
NiteNite and many Savasanas and situps to you! ! xo!
