Where did the weekend go!? Why do they pass so quickly!? The highlight of my weekend was definitely seeing my favorite band…again. We counted on the way to the show and it was our eighth time seeing The Avett Brothers! Read previous show recaps here and here. We even met them last fall!
Unfortunately, the weather took a bad turn right before we left for dinner but the Avett’s are worth battling severe thunderstorms.
We donned our rain gear and headed over to Kickstand Burger Bar for pre-show burgers and beer.
I had a black bean burger with chipotle ranch, guacamole and pepper jack cheese on a whole wheat bun with a side salad. And a large Sweetwater 420!
The concert was awesome, as always. The Avett Brothers are from the Charlotte area so anytime they come home it’s always a super high energy but heartfelt show. Love these guys!
Sadly, we came home to find a sick dog. Sullie had an upset tummy and you could tell she felt terrible and guilty that she was sick. It broke my heart. We were up with her several times last night.
How can you be upset with this? (I took this after her bath today!)
I was up and at ‘em at 7 a.m. to prep for my first Sunday class at Y2 Yoga. I’m taking over the 90-minute hot class. Hot classes feature longer holds in all of the poses and no chaturangas – more low-key than vinyasa classes but challenging in a different way. Since it was my first time teaching this format, I wanted to have a clear class plan outlined before I went in.
The class went SO well! I received really positive feedback after and I’m finally starting to believe that I can do this yoga teacher thing! It’s been a struggle because I feel like I’m on autopilot. Yes, I’m saying the right things and yes, the class is hard but I don’t feel like my normal teaching personality is there. Today was a small breakthrough!
The best part about class was having reader Caroline there. She lives in Charleston but was visiting her parents here in Charlotte this weekend and came to my class! Caroline, it was GREAT to meet you!
I stayed for part of an ashtanga class after mine, I was dying to practice, but I had to cut out early because my belly was growling!
I made an open-faced egg sandwich with sliced tomato and cheddar. A really sweet orange, strawberries and pineapple on the side.
After I ate I had to quickly write out another class plan and head to the Y to teach total strength. That tough class wrapped up my marathon week of teaching – SEVEN classes! I am TIRED! With that, I am off to bed. We have clean sheets and I’m ready to collapse.
One last thing. Because I love y’all…I posted the Lemon Coconut Pound Cake recipe on Bakin’ and Eggs.
Make it an amazing week everyone!
