I went to bed last night to the sound of rain and thought it was going to continue into the morning (that’s what I get for trusting the weather man). I was so sad to wake up at 7:15 and discover sunny skies and warm (relatively) temperatures. There just wasn’t enough time to squeeze in a run before work and I had plans after work so I missed out on running on the one nice day we had. Sadly, the 10-day forecast is calling for a lot of rain and cold. Boo. I am so ready for longer days and warmer temperatures. Who’s with me!?
So today was an unplanned rest day but I’m okay with that. I would have liked to have worked out it’s okay that it didn’t happen. Honestly, I’m pretty tired and I know that the rest is good for me. How do you guys deal with unplanned rest days? Do you roll with it or stress out about missing your workout?
I had banana oatmeal at my desk this morning and then came home for lunch.
Trader Joe’s masala veggie burger on a bagel thin with mashed avocado, spinach and provolone.
This was my first time trying the masala burgers and they were pretty good for the very affordable price. They were more potato-heavy than I anticipated but I like the spice level and flavor. I dipped my sandwich in ketchup.Pears and carrots on the side.
I had plans to see one of my favorite people in Charlotte after work today. I headed over to Varji & Varji for a brow wax with Ariana. Seriously, seeing her is one of the highlights of my month. Not only is she insanely talented, but she is also beautiful and personable. It’s always fun to catch up with her!
After my brow wax I met a long lost friend for a glass of wine at Yn.
I worked with Megan at Camp Wayfarer many, many summers ago. Although we both live in Charlotte, this is the first time that we’ve gotten together. She is an amazing triathlete and spinning instructor. We had fun discussing all things fitness, racing and Charlotte. I asked if she’d be willing to write an intro to triathlons post and share a race recap from an upcoming half-Ironman and she’s definitely interested. Be on the lookout for that! 😀
I made a quick salad for dinner when I got home.
Spinach, mixed greens, olives, sundried tomatoes, carrots, dried cranberries, almonds, feta and roasted chick peas with homemade balsamic vinaigrette. A slice of ciabatta toast on the side.
Bed time. Meeting a friend who is also going through yoga teacher training at a different studio in Charlotte for ashtanga in the morning! Can’t wait to hear how it’s going for her!
