Morning Yoga and Parm-Crusted Flounder

I needed an energizing yoga session this morning. mrC had an oh dark thirty pick up for his trip today and that interruption in my sleep left me feeling sort of blah when I woke up later.

When I want to do yoga at home, I always go to Yoga with Adriene. She has the best at home yoga video options and the best voice. Today I did the Energizing Morning Sequence and Yoga To Get The Juices Flowing.

It's been awhile since I've done yoga because my achilles was firing up when I went into downward dog, but today it felt ok. I didn't force the pose like I would have a month ago. Instead I focused on how my legs were feeling. They were a little tight.

The whole session felt really good on my muscles that were feeling a bit sore from yesterday's full body workout. 

The weather was not as soothing as my yoga session. This rolled in very quickly mid-morning and then hung around most of the day.

What I ate on low calorie day

Breakfast: the usual

Lunch: I wasn't that hungry (and didn't even eat all of the turkey), but felt like I should eat something. I always seem to have less of an appetite on rest days...unless it's fast day. Then I want all the food because I can't have it!

Dinner: parm-crusted flounder. This is such an easy recipe (see below) and I could eat it every other day.

Parm-crusted {fill-in-the-blank with your favorite fish} Recipe:

Drizzle each fillet with coconut oil
Cover with shredded Parmesan cheese
Sprinkle some Cajun seasoning, paprika, parsley flakes

Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees on a cooking sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray.

Snacks: I snacked on some strawberries and dry Honey Nut Cheerios, too.

Macros: Low calorie day always makes me nervous, but then it turns out to be easier than I thought. I had room for more carbs and a few more calories, but I was content.

Do you use yoga for more than just a workout?
Do you eat more or less on your rest days?
