Thursdays are pretty much the opposite of Tuesdays for me. I actually kind of consider it a day “off” because as of now only have a couple of commitments on Thursdays. Did you know that it’s actually one of the slowest days of the week in the fitness world? I think that people start out the week with a lot of resolve and then kind of lose it as work becomes crazy and happy hour or vegging on the couch become more appealing than the gym.
For those of you who were asking about my early morning pre-workout eats (or lack there of)…I actually did eat half of a banana with peanut butter before yoga this morning. Thursday mornings are my favorite because I get to practice ashtanga at Y2. My practice felt so good this morning. Ashtanga is a huge check in for me on how my body is feeling and today it felt amazing.
After practice I grabbed coffee at Starbucks and then headed over to Fight Gone Mad to check out their new facilities. Really fun news for my Charlotte readers…Y2 Yoga is partnering with Fight Gone Mad to offer bootcamps in November!
We’re going to be using their facilities to host our FIRST EVER off-site (out of the studio) fitness bootcamps that will be 90 minute workouts combining strength training, functional training, cardio, yoga and whatever else we want to throw in! 😉
The owner of studio, Tanner, and I will alternate weekends leading the bootcamps. If you’re interested in participating, sign up here! It’s the second event if you scroll down a bit. Come work out with us!
The daily eats…
Lunch when I got home was a big quinoa bowl. I cooked quinoa with vegetable broth and sundried tomatoes and then placed it over a bed of spinach and topped it with kalamata olives, feta, avocado, plain greek yogurt and hummus.
Late afternoon snack before teaching a yoga basics class was a cinnamon raisin English muffin with peanut butter, honey, banana and cinnamon and a cup of hot tea. I needed a big snack because dinner was going to be late.
Dinner was sooo good and worth the 9:15 p.m. meal time. I didn’t get home from teaching until 7:30 and Brandon didn’t get home until 9 so dinner was late! Yes, that would be meatloaf that you see above but trust me, it’s delicious. Ground chicken as the base and stuffed with spinach and mozzarella. Topped with marinara and more cheese. I will be posting the recipe shortly. I discovered this recipe many years ago but I only make it once a year or so.
