I am a broken record on Tuesdays. I’m exhausted. That’s all going to change soon though as I get back on a more normal schedule. Although I love everything that I have done today, I’m definitely looking forward to being a bit more focused and not all over the place all day, every day.
The alarm went off at 5:45 a.m. I prepped for the day and then ate a whole wheat English muffin with cream cheese on my way to teach a 7 a.m. yoga class uptown. My 8 a.m. cancelled so I was able to get in three miles on the treadmill before training a client at 9. I did speed/hill intervals.
I rushed home to let Sullie out and made a quick smoothie. Banana, strawberries, blueberries, plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, ice cubes and a handful of ice cubes. All that was missing was the spinach – I was all out believe it or not! The sans-spinach smoothie made for the perfect Valentine’s day fuel with a purple straw.
I had a meeting at Metro and then headed back uptown to teach a lunch yoga class and a group private.
I had a quick break between class and my private and grabbed lunch at Energy Cafe (surprise, surprise!). Carrot ginger soup and build your own salad. Sadly, the staff is starting to know my order from memory now!
And then there were cupcakes…chocolate ones with Reese’s cups in the middle and cream cheese frosting. I ate one on the gym floor. It felt wrong…but so right! It was the pick-me-up I needed to make it through my fourth and final yoga class of the day at Y2. 😛
I was so glad that I ate the cupcake when I found myself back at Metro at 6:30 p.m. and participating in the CrossFit workout of the day. My original intention was to observe the potential instructor the was teaching but I have this problem where I get workout envy and it’s so hard for me to sit on the sidelines. So I ended up completing Helen. My first “real” CrossFit workout ever. It was fun!
I arrived home to find an Edible Arrangement from my grandmother. It was such a fun Valentine’s Day surprise and while I love chocolate and flowers, it’s so nice to have healthy and delicious fresh fruit on hand.
Dinner was ridiculously good. I roasted eggplant and asparagus and served it with the garlic gnocchi that I bought at the farmer’s market a few weeks ago. I topped the eggplant with a little bit of mozzarella cheese and then spooned marinara sauce over the gnocchi and eggplant. I loved this meal.
Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day dinner. Did you go out or stay in? I can’t handle the crowds and prixe-fixe menus at restaurants and much prefer to cook at home.
And now I am going to collapse into bed. Tomorrow is equally (if not even more) crazy and starts with a 5:30 a.m. alarm.
