I have so much thanks and gratitude for all of those who have served and are currently serving our country. Both of my grandfathers served in the military (one was a West Point grad!) and my mom has been a social worker for the V.A. for over 20 years now. She has worked in multiple capacities ranging from drug and alcohol counseling to running homeless programs to serving as a case worker and making home visits to vets to help them stay on track and with anything they need.
Here in Charlotte I am so proud to share that Y2 Yoga participates in Yoga for Vets year round. This program is meant to help vets combat returning home and war-related stress through yoga. What an amazing program.
So picking back up with the weekend updates…
I had pretty much the best Saturday night ever. I worked until about 6:30 and then made a cheese plate with this selection from Trader Joe’s.
I don’t think anything can top truffle cheese.
After cheese I had a glass of wine and an appetizer before an 8 p.m. massage. These are zucchini chips.
Going into the massage I was having a lot of tension in my neck and IT bands. The massage was everything I wanted it to be and more. My therapist was great and I left a little after 9 p.m. feeling relaxed and unknotted. I came home and watch We Are The Millers before passing out for the night. Highly recommend this movie. It was so funny and an easy watch.
I taught my 9:15 a.m. yoga class at Y2 on Sunday morning and then hit up Whole Foods for brunch which became more veggie plate lunch for me. I loved everything on my plate!
I spent the afternoon cleaning and working before heading out for a 4.25 mile run. The weather was awesome. We had a staff brand training meeting at the studio and then I came home and made dinner. Wild caught salmon salad with mixed greens, golden beets, toasted pecans, goat cheese, avocado, dried cranberries and homemade balsamic vinaigrette. I toasted a piece of sourdough on the side.
Lots to knock out this afternoon including a photo shoot! 😛 Off to be productive.
