Yesterday was day 1 of the DO what you DON’T challenge…and I did something I don’t do: yoga.
[My April goal was 30 minutes once a week]
I can officially say a few things about yoga: 1) I liked it, 2) it’s HARD, and 3) I’m sore. But most importantly, I did it. In fact, I did 51 minutes of yoga (Yogaworks Body Slim on Exercise TV, to be exact).
Cooking an artichoke…
Several of you had never steamed an artichoke before and wanted to know how. Good news, it’s easy breezy!
Directions: Cut any excess length off the stem of the artichoke. Splash the artichoke with water, place in a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap, venting slightly. Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes until the leaves turn to a dull, olive green and the heart (base) is soft. Serve with butter, butter + horseradish, mayonnaise, etc.
My dietitian friend from grad school posted about artichokes yesterday, too. Total coincidence! Erica’s method is a little fancier than mine, but it sounds delicious all the same!
Mr. Prevention and I are Vegas-bound today! We’re meeting some friends there and have lots of fun stuff planned! A bit non-traditional for Easter, but I can’t wait. 😀
Question: Do you practice yoga? If so, do you use yoga more so for fitness or pleasure?
