Weekend Recap!

Well, I made it through the Prana 12 day yoga challenge! I had such a blast participating in this challenge and  I am looking forward to continuing with yoga regularly to become a better, faster runner!

Let's catch up on the last 3 poses (and the weekend!), shall we?

Wednesday's pose was the Anjaneya Variation Twist (Hold opposite side leg)...

Thursday's pose was the Camatkarasana (better known as wild thing!)....

Whoa! This was quite a stretch and I am looking forward to eventually getting both hands on the ground for a full back bend. This is where I am now, so... baby steps!! :)

Friday's pose was the very last one! It was so relaxing and easy. This is called the Tadasana pose (Mountain pose) with hands in Lotus Mudra. Love this!!

Friday was also a fun food day! I went to Whole Foods and bought the most beautiful purple cauliflower...

The kiddos and I were so excited about it and I decided to make a yummy stir fry for our Friday night dinner! Here is the quick and easy recipe:

Shrimp Stir Fry with Purple Cauliflower

  Author: Natrunsfar
  Prep Time: 10 minutes
  Cook time: 18-20 minutes
  Total time: 28-30 minutes
  Serves: 3-5


  ~ 1 head of purple cauliflower
  ~ 1 bag of frozen shrimp from Trader Joe's (cooked with tail                removed)
  ~ 1 organic yellow bell pepper
  ~ 2 organic broccoli crowns
  ~ 2 organic carrots
  ~ 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  ~ 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  ~ 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper 
  ~ 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Start cooking brown rice. I use Trader Joe's organic quick cook           brown rice (cooks in 12 minutes).
  2. Wash broccoli and cauliflower and cut into medium sized                   pieces.
  3. In a large wok or skillet, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to                         the pan over medium heat. Heat oil for 30 seconds.
  4. Add broccoli and cauliflower to the wok. 
  5. Cook on medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until cooked, but             not over done (the broccoli should still be bright green).
  6. Add bell pepper to the wok and cook for two                                       minutes.
  7. Add shrimp (thawed) and cook  for another 2-3                                 minutes.
  8. Serve hot over brown rice.


Lots of core work and a P90x workout today! A great workout!!

Also, Jerold found this beautiful flower in our yard and picked it for me (so sweet!). A sign that spring is near?

Josh and I had a lot of fun making a video cheering all of our runner friends on for their long runs on Sunday morning! NOTE: Click the video to start and then click it again to stop (otherwise it will keep playing!!) :)

Sunday was a lot of lazy fun with the family and a big 2 hour NAP for me!!!

I enjoyed watching the Academy Awards - Love Julianne Moore, so that was definitely a highlight...

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Do you like to watch the Academy Awards? Do you watch the show with friends in a party type atmosphere or at home?
I was in my jammies at home!

Happiness Is Running Life!
