Ok, so I know that you're probably wondering how last night went, but I'm going to make you wait one more day for the recap. I have tons of fun pics to upload tonight!
Even though I sucked down several vodka-waters last night, I woke up this morning without a hangover. It must have been all that water I was drinking! I'm pretty proud of myself actually. I had a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of Tostitos for a late night snack instead of pizza and ice cream, and for breakfast today I had big bowl of Cheerios with a banana instead of a 500-calorie sausage and egg sandwich—I'm making progress! And I made it to yoga. I was so sore from my workout yesterday—yoga class, 50 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on the Stair Master, sit-ups, pushups and lots of lunges—but I needed to do something active, and I just wasn't motivated to do any cardio.
Anyway, I got some extra special treatment at yoga today. The instructor told us to raise our hands if we didn't want to be touched when she corrected our form—no one did, but I think I might next time! When I was in triangle pose, she ran her hand from my ribcage to my fingertip to help lengthen my arm, and grazed my boob. She moved my hip positioning in reverse triangle pose (it is so hard to keep them squared off!), and pushed my bum down forcefully when I was in child's pose. It was a bit much to say the least. Focus is important in yoga, but it's hard to maintain when the instructor is groping you in class! She's kind of a hippie and says things like "spread your wings like you're going to fly off into eternity" and "it's all about the journey, not the destination," so I suppose it's natural for her be touchy-feely, but I was not feeling it. Ahh well, I hate when instructors don't take the time to correct me at all, so I guess it's good that she was so attentive.
After yoga, I met my boyfriend for lunch at Supper in the East Village. It's one of my favorite restaurants!
The white bean/olive oil dip and bread is FREE and it is so delicious! I just had one small piece, but I could have easily eaten it all.
Look how cute my latte is! Whoever made it has serious skillz.
I got the vegetable platter—it is sooo yummy. I'm sure the olive oil the veggies are cooked with add a decent amount of calories, but veggies are veggies, man! Plus, I only ate half— I'll have the rest for lunch tomorrow!
I feel good about breaking my usual "I'm going to eat anything I want because I got drunk last night" habit. I hope I can keep it up!
Has anyone else broke any bad eating habits recently? And how do you guys feel about super touchy-feely yoga instructors? I'd love to hear some stories!
