It was back to reality today but I love my reality so it was a happy Monday! 🙂
I kicked off my day with a 4:55 a.m. wake up call to train clients. I ate half of a banana with almond butter and made a cup of Every Day Detox Tea to take to the gym with me. I gave up caffeine in the early morning again a month or so ago in favor of tea. It’s a vicious cycle! I usually do have a small snack when I get up this early because I can’t make it through multiple clients until breakfast without something to hold me over.
I trained clients at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30. I’ve been training my clients for so long that it’s like catching up with friends. The three hours flew by and they all left tired and sweaty! I came home at 8:30 a.m. to make coffee (finally…praise jesus!) and a green smoothie with peanut butter granola. I went five days without a smoothie so I was a little overly excited about breakfast this morning!
I spent the next couple of hours working on things for Charlotte Yoga. One of which was marketing support for our upcoming Valentine’s Day classes. We’re offering special classes for couples and singles and I can’t wait!
I trained a client at 11 a.m. at Metro and then headed to Charlotte Yoga for our weekly management team meeting.
I came home for lunch and made a salad with mixed greens, pears, walnuts, avocado, dried cranberries and deli herb roasted turkey. Carrot soup on the side. After lunch I ate the other half of this morning’s banana with some chocolate coconut peanut butter.
I spent the next two hours on the computer in a mad rush to answer as many emails as possible. I also took some pauses to appreciate the cuteness (and hugeness) of Zoey.
I had a yoga private at 4:30 p.m. and then taught my Monday night hot vinyasa at Charlotte Yoga at 5:45.
It was so amazing to walk into the studio and see all of my students after a week off of teaching. I had a sell-out crowd tonight of 50 yogis and sadly had to turn some away. 🙁
The energy was incredible and I was so fired up that I stayed to practice and took the class after mine. I was a sweaty mess after flour clients, one private, one hot class and practicing. It was such a great day back at it!
I got home around 8 and prepped dinner while I chatting with my grandmother. I didn’t really have a plan going into it but after opening the fridge, I settled on chicken with pepper jelly and goat cheese, rosemary roasted sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli. So good. Happy to be back in my kitchen.
Now I’m watching Suits and blogging before I turn in for the night. I have an early client tomorrow but the rest of my day is light and perfect for catching up on work and life! 🙂
Let’s be positive! What was the best thing about your Monday?
