I woke up at 5:45am (and I use the term woke up loosely as I had a really hard time sleeping), put on my spandex and hit up my first Bikram yoga class in almost a year.  Let me make on thing clear: I hate every single solitary second of Bikram yoga, but when I leave my body feels amazing and I can see a huge difference in my body very quickly when I take classes regularly.  As, I haven’t been there for what seems like a lifetime I felt like vomiting pretty much the whole time.  I really like the intense heat, but my body is obviously not accustomed to it anymore.  I survived though.  I had to sit through a couple of poses, but I made it through the entire 90 minutes without tossing my bile and in now I feel kind of amazing.

That’s not the end of my working out for the day though.  I’m scheduled to hit the gym for a run and some strength training at 12:30.  Part of my new and improved work from home schedule is to break up my workouts into two parts.  One in the AM to wake me up and one around lunch to energize me for the rest of the day.  This is my first week of this new schedule I’ve put together.  Let’s see how it works.

Here’s breakfast:
