I started my morning around 4:30AM with a strawberry, almond milk, and whey protein smoothie. It was quite filling. After that I hopped on my recumbent bike for a 30 minute all out ride. Followed that with 45 minutes of a yoga DVD I’ve been trying to finish without stopping for a rest. Only one rest break today – yay.

I'm hooked on Davidson's Tea. My favorite flavor is Rooibos Spiced Chai. There's something so relaxing about holding the warm cup in your hands and slowly sipping the warm spicy brew. That's what I've asked for for Christmas - a box of tea bags in that flavor. Before I eat dinner in the evening I have a cup and drink it slowly over about half an hour. It helps me to slow down my eating and fills me up, too.

I’ve got to get a camera so I can put pictures up here. My daughter is supposed to be bringing me one on Friday. Can’t wait to try it out.

Goals for 2011

Today I want to share a post with you from Caitlin's blog Healthy Tipping Point. Today she shared her list of non-mileage related goals. I love her list. Many of them are also on my list of goals for 2011.
In 2011 I want to:
Learn to hold a full plank for 60 seconds.
Do 25 squats without a rest
Work on hamstring flexibility to a plus 3 - 4
Walk around Washburn's (a local university) campus again
Walk 3.o mph at a 2.0 or greater elevation for 30 minutes
Meditate every day for 30 days working up to 20 minutes per session
Finish a 60 minute yoga DVD without resting
Walk the Shunga trail from Washburn to Fairlawn and back
These are just a start. I'll add to the list as I come up with ideas.
Ya'll check out Caitlin's post and blog. You'll love it as much as I do. The photo is of Caitlin from her blog. I hope she doesn't mind me using it to introduce her to my readers.
