Dozing off (LiveFit Day 62 & 64 + 3 On Thursday)

I eat 2 egg whites every morning. I just switch up the carb to make it interesting/exciting: Van's Lite waffles! Two days in a row.

I only slept 6 hours or less yesterday. I needed coffee to power me through.

And boy, it got me through!

I went to the gym immediately after work for LiveFit Day 62. The exercises went well, but I was mostly itching to sprint. 

Part of my workout was done the night before when I spent 30 minutes at the gym, in search of weights. I decided not to post my workout weights today because I'm not using my own computer and because my weights aren't increasing now with more reps.

I got nice and sweaty before I went to my friend/co-worker's yoga class.

She subbed a couple of classes at a new studio, Harmony HB. The studio is large and offers yoga, barre, and wait for it, hoop dancing. Hoop dancing brings me back to Asheville. Unfortunately, that's where my hoop is too. :/

The class is a yin yoga class, which focuses on deep stretching of the muscles around the hip. I totally needed it. I found out that my hips are not as open as they once were. More stretching needed...

I received a coupon from Zone Perfect in the mail the other day so I bought their blueberry flavored one at Whole Foods on my way home. I ate 1/4 of it and saved the rest for last - I do this all the time.

Some music before bed...

Today is pictureless. Oops. I got my Foodie Penpal package and did take pictures. Of course, that won't be revealed until the end of the month! 

Here's a quick recap of my day:
  • Taught half of a math class when the teacher had a meeting and a sub failed to show up.
  • Went to the gym for LiveFit Day 64, a leg day. I worked hard on my hamstrings, did the lateral bound and long jumps, and felt pain in my knees. Gah, must give them a break.
  • Picked up my "The Color Run" packet! :)
  • Helped my cousin buy a thank you card for his internship.
  • Studying. What??! 
And now, here's a new feature: 3 On Thursday.

3 on Thursday

What three books are most important to you? What books do you re-read most frequently?

1) You should probably know that I don't reread books. Except maybe ONE: The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm.


I read this in a geography for teachers class. I loved it. It's not a book I would typically read, but I love the fantasy of it.

2) Since I don't have other books to report on, I thought I'd just tell you what books I'm looking forward to. I finished Catching Fire and it's a cliff hanger so I can't wait to read Mockingjay!

3) Bill Bryson. I have two of his books on my shelf, In A Sunburned Country and At Home. I'm so glad he wrote the latter.

Your turn!
What books are you reading?
Do you re-read books? Why or why not?
There's a yoga for everyone so what's yours?


  1. Stopping by from 3 on Thursday link up :) That book looks very interesting and the title catches me! Plus usually Newberry winners are good choices. Have a great weekend!

    1. It's an easy book to read too - not too short and not too long. Of course, that's because it's for teens. But what good books aren't?

  2. I'm constantly reading Nora Roberts books. Almost my whole bookshelf is full of her books. I finished The Hunger Games series and I'm thinking of rereading them already. I do reread certain books, like all my Nora Roberts books. If it can catch me and suck me in then I'll definitely reread it.

    1. I don't think I've ever read a Nora Roberts book. I see them all the time. Do you have a particular favorite?
