I could not sleep Wednesday night. I don’t know if it was my run, all the sugar in my frozen yogurt dinner or that I “slept in” until 7:15 a.m. the two mornings prior. I was just not tired. I finally fell asleep around 1 a.m. and popped out of bed at 5:15 a.m. when my alarm went off. I don’t think this is necessarily a good thing? Eek! Sleep body, sleep.
I headed to my second ashtanga class of the week. I was determined to get another ashtanga practice in since Tuesday night’s felt so terrible. I got to the studio around 6:10, rolled out my mat and got to work. There were only a few of us there practicing and it was just so blissful. Definitely a reminder that I am a morning yogi.
Breakfast at my desk was banana bread (baked last night after the blogger get together) with cinnamon peanut butter and grapes, blueberries and peaches.
No overnight oats (my typical post-yoga breakfast) because there was just no way I could put anything that semi resembled yogurt in my body this morning.
Over the course of the morning I developed a killer sinus headache. I was feeling pretty miserable on my drive home for lunch.
Like really miserable. I thought that maybe lunch would help my headache but no such luck.
I had a leftover garden veggie enchilada. On the side was quinoa and black beans, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and salsa on a bed of spinach.
When I arrived back at work I decided that it was finally time to take something for my headache. I was so very thrilled to find an Advil Cold & Sinus in my purse (and I just switched purses this morning!!!). My headache dissipated within 30 minutes. Ahh…
Although she may never come back because we made the class do push ups in chest, triceps and shoulders today. It was pretty intense/awesome. I was ready to work since my class got canceled on Monday. Gotta get that strength training in! 😉
After work I stopped by the store to pick up a few toiletry items and was thrilled to find Sam Adam’s Octoberfest.
This is one of our favorite Fall seasonal beers!
Dinner tonight was a random mixture of roasted things. Surprisingly, Brandon was totally on board with this.
Roasted eggplant, broccoli, zucchini and tofu. I also sautéed a chicken breast for Brandon. On the side I made a yogurt sauce with plain nonfat Greek yogurt, cumin, basil, lemon juice and salt. Simple but satisfying dinner.
And I’m out…meeting a friend for yoga at Charlotte Yoga tomorrow morning – it’s free yoga day there!!! 😀
Please tell me about your fabulous Labor Day weekend plans!!! You all know that we are so excited to stay home and hang in Charlotte but I want to know what you’re doing!
