I wish I could say that my weekend was full of fun and exciting things but about all I’ve got for you is book writing, avocados and a cute golden retriever. I received an 80 page word document full of tracked changes to review from my copy editor that was due by Sunday evening. It encompassed much of my time this weekend. I guess one exciting thing to share is that my BodyPump audition went well today and I will soon be teaching again! 🙂
Per usual, I spent Saturday and Sunday mornings teaching hot yoga. And was it ever hot! I had to laugh at this sweat angel made by a student and fellow teacher. She was in supta baddha konasana (laying on your back with feet together and knees apart) with her arms stretched over head. When she got up there was a perfect sweat outline of it.
Sullie was cute in full-force this weekend. She rolled around in the dirt after it rained so I had to give her a bath (her fault!). Clearly, she was thrilled about that.
But after she was fresh and clean we spent 20 minutes on the living room floor cuddling and playing with toys on Saturday night.
I ate this same exact meal for lunch both Saturday and Sunday. Open faced egg sandwich on sourdough with avocado and colby jack cheese. Watermelon on the side. The egg is from one of my friend’s backyard chickens and the sourdough was homemade by my dad. Love it!
On Saturday night I had dinner at a friends house. She served the most amazing taco soup with ground chicken. I am harassing her for the recipe to share with y’all. I made brownies and a keylime pie for the gathering but didn’t snap any pics.
Tonight’s dinner salad was EPIC! Spinach, greens, tomato, artichokes, kalamata olives, feta, sunflower seeds, avocado and a Trader Joe’s Salmon Burger. The thing that took it over the edge was homemade hummus dressing. So easy and so yum!
And I’ll leave you with some inspiration. Kathryn Budig is a well-known yoga teacher and Under Armour spokeswoman. She posted this photo on her facebook page today with the following text.
“I am a 31 woman (32 year-old tomorrow) who is strong and driven. I eat healthy but enjoy a decandent meal. I hydrate but enjoy shots of Fireball on fun occasions. I have cellulite (and have since the age if 11) and don’t feel turned off by it. I am 100% me and a woman. I pray that my confidence and honesty will inspire yours. We don’t empower each other by tearing ourselves apart. We empower by being real, honest and balanced. I so deeply wish love and acceptance and empowerment for all.”
Have an amazing week!
