Today was all off. It started out with me stumbling out of bed in a half-asleep stupor at 5 a.m. and slamming my toe into a door. Which resulted in a split toenail that left me walking around all day with a half the nail polished chipped off and a throbbing big toe.
And then midmorning I was hit by a wave of exhaustion that stuck with me for the rest of the day. Along with the exhaustion came hunger…and a lot of snacking! It was the kind of hunger that kind of made me feel nauseous. Weird. So as a result of this, along with the fact that I taught yoga before and after work, I ended up taking an unplanned rest day. Eh, it happens.
Breakfast at my desk after teaching a beautiful yoga class this morning was a cinnamon raisin bagel with peanut butter, honey and banana.
I came home for lunch and made a big salad (there’s something about eating a bagel that makes me crave greens). Spinach, apple slices, carrots, dried cranberries, apples, avocado, feta and chickpeas with honey dijon lemon vinaigrette.
We ate lunch outside and Sullie wanted nothing to do with us. Instead, she chose to sunbathe. I think it’s so funny how much she loves the sun.
Over the course of the afternoon I snacked on crackers, a peach and a small slice of birthday cake. Yep, told ya that I was feeling snacky. Does anyone else get hungry when you’re tired? Today was one of those cases where I would have been a little better off had I had healthier snack options on hand at work!
I subbed a yoga class after work and it totally recharged me. I was able to let go of the blahness of the day and really enjoy my time with them. When I got home we made an easy but healthy dinner. (That was waaaayyy “healthy living bloger-ific.”) Grilled chicken, millet and kale chips. Will you believe me when I tell you that Brandon requested the kale chips? Or when I say that Sullie loved them too? I think I loved them least out of the three of us. Have you jumped on the kale trip bandwagon? Do you like them?
And that’s all I’ve got for you. Bed time. Have a happy Wednesday!
