Narrative of Increase

Just kidding — still Tales of Expansion here. (That probably makes no sense unless you read last night’s post, so go read it!). Maybe I should come up with a different synonym title for every post this week …


I switched the exercise routine this morning since I’m planning on running club tonight. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical at the gym and then came home for 20 minutes of Yoga for Runners #1. This class was MUCH more manageable than the last time I attempted it! I still got confused in a couple of spots — especially since I couldn’t find the pose guide that came with the download — but I stuck it out until the end. I guess all the Gentle Hatha #1 is paying off … and there I was thinking all I was doing was stretching! Stats for jog to and from gym, elliptical, and yoga: 1 hour and 21 minutes, 341 calories, average heart rate 106, max 155.

Breakfast was another cup of my exciting new Almond-Infused Rosemary-Lemonade crockpot oats with 1/2 cup yogurt, unsweetened coconut, 2 crumbled basil-spice meringue kisses, 1 tsp homemade almond butter, and 1 tbsp vanilla-almond granola:


And more chocolate tea (black tea, unsweeteed cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne, splash unsweetened silk) on the side:


Back to blog title synonyms, Janet from Pretty Green Girl left a comment last night with a few synonyms for her own blog: “Based on a quick scan of, I’m thinking… Fairly Naive Damsel. Or Foxy Jade Lassie. Or Somewhat Youthful Lady. Ok, that one totally depresses me. ;)” Her comment got me laughing and thinking that this would be a fun activity. So, what’s YOUR blog title synonym?

    Hmmm…Nibbles of 24 hours? Eh, I’m not great with synonyms.

    The one time I did yoga for runners I kept getting lost at parts and had the sheet but I’ve been meaning to retry it. It seems like everytime I do one of those downloads it gets easier to understand.

    I thought it was just me that was so confused during Yoga for Runners! Sounds like the program is actually just confusing. πŸ™‚ It’s not us, it’s them!

    You are so creative w/ your oats!
