Today was a much better day. Eight hours of sleep was just what I needed to get my day started right. Sometimes it’s nice to give myself a break from the 5 a.m. wake up calls and sleep in a bit.I finally rolled out of bed and got ready for work at 7:45 this morning. It was fabulous.
Breakfast at my desk was hot oatmeal…which I have been eating very little of since our temperatures have been in the upper 90s every day. I put a summer spin on it by featuring blueberries and peaches in the mix.
I came home for lunch and enjoyed my meal outside.
A slice of Great Harvest Whole Grain Goodness with hummus, avocado, spinach and cheese. Pita chips, carrots and a nectarine on the side.
After my rest day yesterday, I was eager to get to the gym after work. I ran 2.5 miles (with ZERO hamstring pain) on the treadmill before teaching BodyPump with one of my favorite co-instructors, Andre.
Class was great although I was having one of those days where what I think and what comes out of my mouth were two totally different things. Oh well! My legs are very happy that today was the last time I have to teach BodyPump 78 for a while. Killer squat and lunge tracks!!!
I met up with my yoga teacher training group after class for a little get together. I enjoyed some delicious red wine and great conversation. It was great to see everyone – they are my yoga family!
My sweet husband had dinner waiting when I got home. He made all the fixings for tacos but I decided to turn mine into taco salad. Lettuce, refried black beans, chicken, avocado, salsa and light sour cream on top of tortilla chips.
And my BIG news…I was featured as a “Fit Blogger We Love” on Fitness Magazine’s website today!!!
I am so excited and honored! I put so much time into my blog and LOVE sharing my life with you guys!
