I’ve been meaning to look into paddle boarding since last summer and I finally put in the two second effort required to Google “Chicago Paddle Boarding” and I happily found Great Lakes Board Company. Lessons aren’t very expensive and after reading this REI Guide to SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) I’m more eager than ever to give it a try! Although, with our move just three weeks away I think I’ll wait until then to take a lesson. Speaking of, I’m going to get back to packing up our apartment now…
After practicing yoga on and off from middle school through college, I abruptly stopped upon graduation. There was no good reason; I just found myself with less free time and I cut out yoga and other exercise to make time for less healthy activities like t.v. and Pinterest. Obviously, that was not the smartest decision and I’m now very much ready to get back into it. I’m going to use these free, online yoga videos to refresh my memory and this pose guide should come in handy as well. Does anyone else practice yoga regularly? Any tips for me?

I’ve got a busy day ahead of me – especially for a Saturday – so I’m starting it off the right way with a healthy breakfast. I just made this Green Monster Spinach Smoothie from Iowa Girl Eats. It tastes great and is an easy way to get a lot of greens. I used gigantic spinach leaves I got from Green City Market.

Steel cut oats are one of my favorite workday breakfasts. They’re super easy to make and keep you full for hours. Another perk is you can dress them up so many different ways that it’s hard to get sick of them. This morning we’re trying these Steel Cut Oats with Banana, Almonds & Coconut. And next time I want to try these Raw Oats, also from The Little Red House.
