So, you may have been wondering, "Jess...I thought this was a food AND fitness blog. All you've been talking about lately is Food and Beer or Wine....what gives?"

Well, you are absolutely correct, I have been slacking on the fitness department as of late, both in reporting what little I've been doing in addition to actually getting my hiney in gear. I do some very basic yoga at home, mostly as muscle prevention these days than anything else. Also, even though I haven't been running much lately I do walk at least a mile everyday after dinner with the mutts.

I've really been missing my yoga classes though. I'm just not advanced in my practice to have a meaningful session in my own home yet and get bored with the DVD's very VERY quickly. So, I was pumped to find myself with an open Saturday morning, in which I would already be in Gville (after sleeping off a night at Stubbies at my home away from home- Love you Christine!) and could finally check out the yoga studio, The Sanctuary, I've been eying online since I decided to make the move back to NorCenFLA. I forgot one small (and by small I mean, HUGE) detail in my flawless plan....A Gator Home Game! (dun-duh-duh). I had already planned to give myself twice the time to get to the studio, (it would usually take me 15mins to get downtown from Christine's townhouse) but 1/2 an hour did nothing for the traffic of 70,000 people trying to get to the stadium and tailgate. A stadium that stood between me and 90mins of beautiful hatha flow. Needless to say the score stands, Jess-0, Ben Hill Griffith-1.

What's a girl to do when she can't make it to a yoga class? Well, go grocery shopping of course!

Check out the loot:

I know there is a lot going on in this let me break it down for you:
Pita Chips
Whole Grain Tortilla Chips
Lemon Hummus
Red Pepper Hummus
Yogurt Galore!
Annie's Cowgirl Ranch
Brie Cheese
Water Crackers
70% Chocolate Biscuits
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
Whipped Cream (for the pie on Thanksgiving...oh and because I love the stuff!)
Annie's Shells and Cheese
Black Beans
Various Soups
White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter (my crack, seriously)
Coconut Tempeh (really excited to try this)

2 Avocados

Plus the "Bread Basket"

Garlic Naan
Potato Bread (I love this stuff and haven't had it in a while)
Honey Wheat English Muffins
Arnold's Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins (the white bread in the background is for the turkey stuffing on Thursday!)

And a few "green things" for school

Split Green Peas for DNA extraction
Mints (I walk around and hand these out to students that are on like a dream for classroom management!)

So, overall a rather successful day, even if it was yoga less. Hope you enjoyed seeing my shopping spree. :D

Love to all,
~a girl with a kitchen full of possibilities, Jess

I'll be honest, the Sanctuary is not my favorite yoga place. In my opinion, you didn't miss much.
