Good morning and happy Wednesday!
I am happy to report that after my post yesterday morning about busy days getting in the way of working out that I was able to get in a yoga practice and a 3 mile run on the treadmill. I teach a group private yoga class on Tuesday afternoons and two of the four didn’t attend so I ended up practicing with the other two. I think it was the first time I’ve ever taught and practiced at the same time. I definitely don’t prefer it but it felt good since I was so desperate to practice.
I had a meeting last night at Metro and stayed after to run on the treadmill. I was tempted to bail and go home but when you work in a gym, there’s really no making excuses. Especially when you announce that you might skip cardio and receive instant responses of, “it’s only 25 minutes of your life” and “you won’t regret doing it, you’ll regret skipping it.” Gah, twist my arm!
I had a late breakfast on Tuesday after teaching a 7 a.m. yoga class, teaching an 8 a.m. private and training a client at 9. I knew I couldn’t make it through all of that without a little something in my stomach so I ate half of one of Emily’s Hungry Bars (grabbed one out of the freezer – they freeze so well!) on the way to the gym. When I got home I made a Greek yogurt bowl with granola, fruit, chia seeds and sunflower butter.
Since I ate breakfast so late, my eating schedule was out of whack yesterday. I ended up not eating lunch until 3:30 when I got home from teaching another yoga class and private. I had to pretty much inhale this before running off to Y2 to teach a power mixed class (my very last Tuesday afternoon class…sad!). Spinach topped with leftover Trader Joe’s Harvest Blend with avocado, hummus and Greek yogurt. Sweet potato tortilla chips on the side.
And finally, a late post-gym dinner of apricot preserves, spinach, tempeh and brie on Great Harvest Whole Grain Goodness. I am on a major tempeh kick right now and craving it. It’s a great vegetarian protein source and I love the texture and flavor. I am planning on doing a whole post about tempeh – nutrition info and preparation – but not today!
My dinner looks kind of small but don’t worry…I finished it off with the last of the banana pudding. I didn’t take a photo because it never actually made it out of the tupperware and into a bowl.
Have a great day!
