Raw Cookies and Yoga

2 02 2010

Hey all! I hope you are having a great start to your week! I had today off (due to the snow) and I also have tomorrow off. I also would not be surprised if Wednesday was taken off. There will at least be a delay!! I just love the south when it snows!

I have been LOVING the yoga lately. It is my favorite form of exercise, with strength training as a close second. Today I did a lovely 60 minutes of Heart Opening Flow #1. It was glorious, to say the least 😉

Today, I worked on my year-long research paper, and got over 6 pages done, or around half. I am VERY glad and feel really good to have this much done. I plan on doing another 3-4 tomorrow. I like being ahead. Tomorrow’s agenda:

  • Work on paper
  • finish Beowulf/notes
  • study Biology (dissection test…EEK!)

I don’t know about you, but my closet had gotten out of control. So I decided to tackle it and be brutally honest with what I don’t wear or use anymore. It feels so much better!

Before: 100_9932After: 100_9933  100_9934 I had good intentions of making raw cookies/babies a month or so ago, but just never had the time. So, I thought this afternoon was the perfect opportunity. I decided to make Averie’s Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls and Katie’s Cashew Cookie Babies. Oh my, so, so, so good! I’ve only tried the balls so far, but I had a little taste of the cashew cookies…I never knew raw desserts could taste so yummy! I highly suggest these. And they are SO EASY. 100_9995

Sorry I’m so slow in commenting. But your closet is sbeautifully organized! I need to be MUCH more self-disciplined in organizational areas!

And I still haven’t made Averie’s balls, but they do look healthy and delicious and they are definitely a project on my to do list.
