I was so excited to receive so much positive feedback on my Stress Less post. Unfortunately, I know that stress is something that most of us can relate to so I think it’s important to focus on dealing with it in healthy ways.
So no photos from my day yesterday because I was on a shoot all day for work and I didn’t really feel that it was necessary or appropriate to photograph my meals while surrounded by clients and crew. 😉
One thing I can share from my day is that I got told for the second time this month that I look like this actress + two other people asked about my ethnicity…which I have been asked pretty much my whole life. Random.
It’s Famke Janssen from the X-Men movies and she was in Taken. It’s always so weird to me when people tell me that I look like someone else…is that weird for anyone else? Who do you hear that you look like?
Fast forward to today.
Breakfast at my desk after teaching yoga with weights was overnight oats in a nearly empty sunflower seed butter jar. It took me a solid 30 minutes to eat this jar of delicousness…not a drop of sunflower seed butter remained when I was done with it!
I had a lunch meeting downtown and grabbed a salad from one of my favorite lunch spots, Energy Cafe. They offer a “build your own” salad for $6.99 with unlimited toppings…and they are generous with them! Such a good deal.
Today’s salad featured mixed greens, apples, black beans, roasted red peppers, corn, cucumbers, feta, walnuts, golden raisins and mushrooms with balsamic vinaigrette. I snagged a piece of baguette and fruit salad from the kitchen at work that was leftover from a meeting.
I love salads with tons of good toppings. This kept me satisfied all afternoon with no snacking.
What are your favorite salad toppings?
Teaching hot vinyasa at Y2 tonight! Can’t wait!
If you’re in town this weekend be sure to check out the Concert for Kids benefiting Communities in Schools. It’s an awesome benefit concert at The Chop Shop in NoDa featuring a Cast Iron Filter reunion show! All of the details are on the Facebook page!
