Almost Heaven

My Tuesday/Thursday routine is a bit wack. Twice a week I attend yoga at high noon and since eating before contorting your body isn’t the wisest, my day of eats starts a little later then usual.

7 a.m.

I purposefully linger over coffee and occupy myself with work, keeping breakfast at bay until 9:30.

Out the door and on the road. At the parking lot, the aroma of freshly baked pie wafts through the air and follows me into the studio. As fate would have it, right next door to the studio is The Upper Crust, a bakery that specializes in pie!

I sit in virasana, mentally preparing myself for practice and deep breathing, indulging through osmosis. It’s a little bit of heaven/hell for a few minutes, but soon all is forgotten as I make my way through my first sun salutation.

1:30 p.m.

I get back home, good and hungry. It pays to plan ahead and only takes a minute to grab a handful of grapes, heat up a leftover pork burger and slap it on a bun.

Thank God for leftovers!

For a snack I polish off a handful of dry-roasted peanuts and down my newest guiltless pleasure, Honest Tea’s Pomegranate Red Tea with Goji Berry.

You’ve got to be careful with nuts; a serving is only ¼ cup or a handful.

The day has been sadly void of veggies, so I sauté a bunch of red and green bell peppers, onions and flank steak for fajitas, top it off with a clementine and call it good.

8:30 p.m.

Well, almost good! My sweet tooth kicks in, so I have a few pieces of dark chocolate and lament the fact that instead of this …
I could have been eating this chocolate pie instead. I vow to indulge come Thursday!


Man, just look at that meringue! Beautiful.

How often do you really indulge? Usually a few pieces of chocolate cut it, but. man. a girl can only take so much!  —Karen

    I’m in for the pie, and can’t imagine having the will power to do yoga next door to a bakery.
