Let Each Breath Change You

Yesterday my alarm went off at 5:30 am, which hasn't happened in a long time but I wanted to start my week of the best way possible... on the mat.

My yoga mat that is

 There is a great 7 am class at my gym but getting out of bed and out of the house by 6:45 am in freezing weather is one of the hardest tasks.
I did it.
It wasn't easy but I did it.

The instructor that teaches the class is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and that says a lot because this was only my second practice with her. I love the stories she tells before/after class and the quotes she shares. Yesterday she said something that really resonated with me but I couldn't remember it word for word so I came up with my own version.

No matter what you're doing: Working, Cooking, Yoga, Running, Playing, etc.  
Try and keep this with you.
Every moment is precious and things can change at any time, you just never know.

After work I planned on taking my usual Monday night total body weight class but since there was a sub teaching I decided to go home bake cookies and make dinner for Eddie and I instead. Making dinner [especially during the week] is almost unheard of for me, either he cooks or I have a protein shake, so to be able to bake and cook for him was a really nice change of pace.

For dinner I made grilled chicken, sauteed spinach topped with melted feta cheese.
Although the cheese sauce was time consuming because it required the double boiler method, 
  After dinner we settled in for The Voice final performances.

If you watch who do you think is going to win?
We both really want Jacquie Lee but I have a sneaking suspicion Tessanne will. As of now she her performances are #1 and #4 on the iTunes charts.

Fingers crossed for Team Christina!!
