I’m happy to report that my Tuesday outlook has been much sunnier than my Monday mood. The day started off on a good note when I decided to sleep until 7 a.m. rather than get up in the five o’clock hour to practice yoga. I love yoga, immensely, but right now my practice has taken a back seat to my schedule and I’m really okay with that. I have to cut myself some slack in some areas and it’s okay if I don’t get to practice every day (and I did end up getting to practice a little later on so it was all good!).
I pulled ingredients out of the fridge to make pumpkin oatmeal. Then I put them all back in the fridge and made eggs, toast and fruit instead. On a related note, is anyone interested in a tutorial on my fail-proof egg cooking method? No flipping required!
Then I looked at the coffeemaker and decided on tea instead. Not sure what was up with me this morning. This is all very uncharacteristic of me!
I subbed the morning hot vinyasa class at Y2. I’ve been helping out with it for the past few weeks and it’s been nice to be with the morning crowd. They are a fun group because you can throw anything at them and they are game for it. Today we worked on dropping back to backbends. Backbends are my favorite! Tuesdays are my late nights at Metro and I’m usually here until about 8 p.m. so I don’t come in until 11:30 or noon. It’s nice to be able to have the morning free (although I usually end up doing email/computer work, but from home!). I love my flexible schedule.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a playlist. This is my playlist from my Sunday morning class (click to make it bigger). I was feeling a little more low-key and less “in the club” and got pretty good feedback on this one. Sometimes I just cannot do Rhianna at 9:15 a.m. on a Sunday. 😉
Okay, back to the food. I trained clients over lunch and then came home for a late lunch around 2 p.m. I was famished but luckily I had a soy latte and a Kind Bar after teaching yoga to hold me over!
I made a panini with apricot preserves, spinach, manchego and tempeh on sourdough. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet with salted butter. Chips, pears and veggies on the side. And then I ate two oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Yep.
Hope it’s been a sunny and cheery Tuesday for you too! Stay tuned for another Under Amour “What’s Beautiful Challenge” post tomorrow AND another giveaway!
