yoga girl wants chicken salad

Brandon and I had takeout delivered for dinner Sunday night. 

I had nothing to cook at my place and we I didn’t feel like getting dressed to go to a restaurant because I was in my sweats from studying all day.

I’m sure I looked as if I had just seen the real deal Santa Claus when I remembered that one of our favorite restaurants delivers.

The Kickin’ Chicken

This restaurant is nothing fancy, as you can probably tell from its name.

I think it’s a chain, but I haven’t seen it in places other than Charleston.

It’s where we go when we want a causal atmosphere and the greasiest, most delicious food ever. 

I usually order the same thing every time but decided to try their chicken salad wrap that night.

This isn’t KC’s wrap, but I wanted y’all to have a visual!

 Well since that night, I’ve been craaaving chicken salad!

I went to the store to look for a good chicken salad the next night and had Brandon take me back to Kickin’ Chicken last night so that I could get another wrap. 

I even saved half of my wrap from last night & had it as brunch this morning.

mmm, I just can’t get enough!

As I sit here with Sex & the City 2 playing in the background for the 18th time and as I’m looking at the murky water in the vase of flowers Brandon gave me last Thursday, I can’t help but be reminded about my aching knee.

I hurt it in yoga yesterday. 

How did I do that?

I didn’t know that yoga provided a high risk of injury, but I managed to hurt myself. 

 Aside from this little injury, I have to tell y’all how much I LOVE the practice of yoga.

I only do it twice a week, but would very much like to add more days into the mix.

It makes you feel so good, and I can definitely feel a difference in my body & soul if I miss a class.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t do hardly any advanced positions…

…unlike this man

ouch.

But I love all of the benefits I’ve experienced.

The benefits of yoga are a mile-long, but some that I’ve recognized in my body are:

Increased flexibility

Increased endurance

Improved posture

Better balance

More arm strength & definition

Improved mood and self-actualization

Decreased stress and anxiety

Improved concentration

I’ve definitely experienced these results from yoga and can’t wait to amp up my yoga practice to keep these benefits coming! 

A 105 year old woman on The Today Show said her secret to living a long life is practicing yoga.

I recommend that all of you find a good class in your area.

With all of these added advantages, we might, too, live long lives and be able to do yoga when we’re old women!

xo.
