Before I write about Day 11 of my challenge, I just wanted to say what a wonderful day I had. I worked from 6 AM to 2:30 PM. My shift went smoothly and I got to work with people I like. My stress levels are surprisingly low and, because it was quite uncharacteristically warm out earlier, I drove home with the top down on my convertible. It was glorious.
Anyway, I did the 11th day of the DO YOU YOGA 30 Day Challenge. It was called “Yoga for Open Shoulders.” Matt came over after work, so we did this video together. The poses were great for my shoulders and back after a long day at work. Having Matt with me so we can laugh at each other was fun, too.
After the video, we went to the gym together and did some exercises with weights. I have next to no upper body strength and that’s something I really want to work on. Then, we took a nice walk up to the lake in my community.
When we got back to my house, I made dinner for Matt and my mom (which never happens because Matt’s a chef and I’m really self-conscious about cooking for him.). I made garlic and basil quinoa with steamed broccoli, tofu (marinated in something Matt whipped up), and mushrooms with garlic. It was delicious and much better than I was expecting it to be.
After dinner, we watched Rush Hour and just hung out together until Matt had to go home.
