I’m late getting to my blog tonight because I’ve been working on a fun project for lululemon. Look out for an update with all the details Wednesday!
I got yesterday’s blog post done early so that Brandon and I could finally spend some time together after I spent all weekend in yoga teacher training. We made plans to go out for pizza but the weather did not cooperate. I was winding up my day at work around 6 p.m. when several people came rushing down the halls saying a big storm was coming and we needed to leave immediately. The next thing I knew, rain was beating down, wind was roaring and we were in the midst of a serious thunderstorm. I made it to my car but got soaking wet in the process.
Once I finally made it home, we debated just ordering pizza but decided to brave the weather and go out anyway. We are pretty serious about our love for pizza and we weren’t going to let a storm get in our way!
We headed to Brixx. It’s one of our favorite places for wood-fired pizza and they have $1.95 microbrews on Mondays. Awesome!
We split a Brixx salad to start. Baby greens, goat cheese, pistachios and croutons.
One of my favorite things about Brixx is that the pizzas are personal sized so Brandon and I don’t have to compromise on pizza.
I went with the wood-roasted veggie pizza on whole wheat crust. I left two pieces of this that I’m planning on enjoying for lunch.
I started this morning with an ashtanga practice. I’ve said this many times before but I love that there is always something new to work on with my ashtanga practice. Today it was lengthening through my upper back because I was looking a little like a turtle in some of the poses (which I was oblivious to until my teacher pointed it out). It’s amazing how much difference being aware and setting an intention can make. I’m also back in the groove with my backbend series and hoping to make a video of the full series for you guys soon!
I had breakfast at my desk.
It was an insane day at work packed with meetings. I had a lunch meeting so no pictures but I had a veggie sandwich with avocado, provolone, sprouts, tomato and lettuce on seven-grain whole wheat.
Hold on to your hats for tonight’s dinner…
Yes, I ate steak. The last time that happened was in October. Crazy! I grew up with a dad who is a very talented griller and we had steak often for dinner. Over the last few years I have cut back on my meat consumption and never really want red meat.
Brandon mentioned that he would like to grill steaks for dinner and I just went with it. He does such a great job with steaks on his Big Green Egg. Here’s the link to his favorite method. We had leftover mac and cheese and roasted broccoli on the side.
Catching up on last night’s Bachelor on DVR and then off to bed!
Two questions – what foods do you guys enjoy but not eat often? And what foods are you willing to brave the elements for?
