Back at the end of June, I joined a yoga studio in my neighborhood. It’s a beautiful studio – Pure Yoga , owned and operated by Equinox – and I go fairly regularly. The studio is in the basement levels of a building on 86th street, but the lack of natural light is not even noticeable. The facilities are absolutely beautiful and the showers…
…Are to die for. This photo doesn’t do them justice.
Anyway, I wanted to highlight the studio because it’s included in some of my November goals. Here we go:
Go to 15 yoga classes this month. (I wanted to make it 20, but I am going to be traveling for 1 week and I don’t think 20 is doable.)
Floss once a day (night). I floss but sometimes I miss a day.
Try 3 new restaurants. Bobby and I eat out a lot – but we tend to go to the same places over and over again. So I want to try 3 new places in our neighborhood this month.
Try 3 new dishes at restaurants I already go to. Self-explanatory. I need some more variety in my life.
Go to a yoga class on my business trip (to… India! More later.).
Stay healthy during holiday/family gatherings. For me this means making the difficult decision – bread, wine, or dessert? Can’t have all three at the same meal.
Test and then make a new recipe for Thanksgiving dinner (this year it’s sort of potluck-style).
Read 2 books. I will write a post soon about 1 that I just finished and 1 that I am in the middle of now.
These goals don’t seem too difficult to achieve. So far I have already gone to 1 yoga class. I took restorative yoga today on my lunch hour. 14 more to go. I wish I could count yesterday in this – I took a double in the morning (couldn’t sleep) of Vinyasa and then Hot Yoga.
I also tried a new dish at dinner tonight. We went to Sabor A Mexico , which is a new favorite. I got the Ensalada De Nopalitos salad with cactus, mixed fresh vegetables, tomatoes, onions, (no) jalapenos, cilantro and (sour cream instead of ) cheese. I had never had cactus before – pretty good! I usually get the quesadillas.
