When I was in college and I guess for a while afterward, a common question between my friends and I was, “What are you doing late night? Let’s meet up late night.” Late night would usually consist of pizza and chicken wings in someone’s dorm room. At least in college, it would.
Things have changed a lot since then and late night doesn’t really exist for me anymore. Once in a blue moon, I’ll stay out until 1 or 2 am, but typically I’m ready for bed at 11pm, even on the weekends.
Eating an early dinner usually goes along with going to bed early. I’m typically very hungry when I get home from work and end up eating dinner by 6:15 or 6:30. Except when I have a yoga class at 7:30, like tonight.
I made what’s become my typical pre-yoga drink – fresh juice. Mr. Breville’s been getting some action lately.
This was one yellow apple, two carrots, half a cucumber, some romaine lettuce leaves and a quarter of a lemon in a Sweetwater glass. ATL represent.
Yoga was hard tonight. The class was pretty crowded which made the room feel hotter. I had to rest in child’s pose during one of the poses towards the end. The class was over at a little bit after nine and Kristy, Laura, Alayna and I stood around chatting for a while. I had to stop at Rite Aid and get Jason some sinus medicine after class and I didn’t get home until 10pm! Did I mention that the yoga studio is a 25 minute drive from my house? Pretty much everything is a 25 minute drive from my house. Well, everything but Applebee’s.
Fortunately, I’d set my rice cooker to cook some Basmati Brown Rice while I was at yoga. I like the Basmati variety but it takes forever to cook so I normally just do the quick cooking rice. But I figured I had the time, so why not. I’m glad that I did because when I got home, I was freakin’ starving.
I basically shoved a cookbook in Jason’s face and asked him to make Cuban Style Black Beans and Rice from the PDQ Vegetarian Cookbook while I showered.
And then I inhaled it. At 10:30. This is the new late night.
