This is post number 550 on PBR! I somehow managed to blow right past 500 so I felt like I had to acknowledge 550. It feels like a huge milestone. I can’t believe that I’m approaching my second blog anniversary in April. I just love the direction that the blog has taken and I’m so excited about future potential!
This has been a really busy week but it’s flown by. Thursdays are usually pretty quiet for me but today was an exception. I started it with a massage (who can complain about that!?) and it was the best one I’ve ever had. One of my personal training clients recommended her massage therapist to me but warned me that it would be more bodywork-style rather than relaxing. Exactly what I’ve been looking for. I tend to manifest stress physically and recently I’ve had a lot of neck, back and hip pain. My massage today was incredible! The therapist focused on neuromuscular therapy and although there were many moments that required yoga breathing and flailing of limbs, I feel so much better now. I am surprisingly sore and she warned me that I may even bruise. Intense.
I had to rush uptown to teach yoga after my massage. My therapist gave me a bit of a lecture that next time I get a massage, I need to relax and rest afterwards rather than have a jam-packed day. Lounging on the couch and taking a hot shower certainly sounded like an appealing way to spend the day but wasn’t realistic. I grabbed a cup of carrot ginger soup (my favorite!) and half of a hummus sandwich from Energy Cafe after teaching.
The rest of my afternoon was spent teaching a yoga private and BodyPump and in an appointment. I finally arrived home at 8 p.m. and was so ready for dinner.
I have been craving veggie curry so I made green coconut curry with eggplant, tofu and stir fry veggies.
I love this dinner so much. I served it over brown rice with a healthy dose of soy sauce and Sriracha. Can’t wait for leftovers!
Again, thank you so much for the entries in the Ghandi Giveaway and let me state again how much I had enjoyed reading all of the responses. I mean it when I say that this will be my “go to” on bad days to remind me that life is good and happiness abounds!
THE WINNER! I wish I could bake for every single one of you.
Comment #26, Laura! Congratulations on crushing your first half!!!
This cute furry thing is demanding my attention. Hope everyone has a great Friday! Mine is actually going to be pretty chill. I only have to teach one class and then I’m going to devote the rest of the day to practicing, getting a hair cut and catching up on email!
And about that hair cut…I’m a little undecided about the direction I’m going to take. Part of me wants a change. I want to stay long but I’m thinking about going back to a side-swept bang. But it’s such a pain to pin back for yoga. Decisions, decision.
Thoughts? Tell me I’ll regret it! 😉
