Thursday Thoughts

Happy Thursday! Lately, I’ve been eating a ton of seafood and loving it. I tend to eat too much red meat so this has been a welcome change. Last night, I did a super easy sauted shrimp dish. It tasted awesome and was really quick for a weeknight dinner. I used a half pound of extra large cleaned shrimp that I picked up from my local seafood store. Then, I grabbed a handful of flat leaf parsley, cilantro, and three pieces of garlic. I just did a rough chop, added a little salt/pepper, then mixed well with some extra virgin olive oil.   The shrimps sauted up pretty quickly. And, I finished the whole dish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

I am pleased to announce that I also shucked my own oysters this week. I pretty much sweet talked a guy at the Whole Foods in order to get a whole lesson on shucking plus some free oysters. I’m not one to ask questions but I’m so glad I did! It was super easy and now I can eat oysters whenever I want. I ate these little guys with a some mignonette sauce.

As far as my workouts have gone, I’ve been a bad girl the last two weeks. Hurumph. I shall get into a groove soon I hope?! Though, I did try a bikrim yoga class at Bikram Yoga NYC in Hell’s Kitchen last week with one of my friends. It was great to have a pal to go to class with. I didn’t mind the heat either.

The class was packed though but the instructor was encouraging especially for beginners. Don’t get me wrong. The poses are tough. And, there are so many to remember! I can’t say that I was great at it or that I was super meditative. But, I did find it challenging and it did loosen up my body which gets very tight from running. It’s definitely a workout I would like to incorporate into any groove I get into.

The details for the studio are below.  I will add that they offer excellent rates to try out the studio.  So, it’s worth just going to check out.
