You guys always seem to love day in the life style posts so I made an effort to take more photos than usual to document my Wednesday. It was a good day. 🙂
7:30 a.m. – wake up naturally but decide to close my eyes and snooze a bit longer. I am still feeling wiped out from last weekend’s travel and workshop + jumping back into full steam ahead this week. Zoey jumps into bed to try to tell us it’s “wiggle time” but resorts to snoozing with us when she realizes it ain’t happening.
8:15 a.m. – make my way out of bed. Tanner and I have made Wednesdays our little mid-week break where neither of us teaches at 6 a.m. and we can get a little extra sleep and a low-key morning together.
8:30 a.m. – Tanner feeds the pups while I make breakfast. Two scrambled eggs and a sweet potato breakfast bowl with almond butter.
8:45-10 a.m. – drink coffee, check email and news, respond to emails and make a playlist and class plan for Y2 Strength.
10-10:15 a.m. – get ready for class, pack a bag and leave.
10:30-11:15 a.m. – teach Y2 Strength. I am so, so excited that we’re getting such a great response to the class! 🙂 It was an awesome workout today!
11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. – take hot class.
Day 3, DONE! 27 more to go! Quick shower and change after class.
12:35-1:30 p.m. – meeting to chat with someone who’s interested in signing up for our summer teacher training at Namastay Kitchen. I had a Hibiscus Updog Kombucha on draft. It was the perfect post-hot yoga refresher. We are loving Updog Kombucha over here!
1:30-2 p.m. – see a table with three of our teachers having lunch and sit and chat with them. Many laughs in a short amount of time.
2:15 p.m. – home and make lunch. I am starving! Salad with arugula, carrots, radishes, couscous, leftover panko crusted snapper, dried cranberries, pine nuts and balsamic. Our avocados were still hard as rocks and my salad felt so incomplete without it.
2:30 p.m. – hang out outside with the pups and throw the ball to Zoey…over and over again.
2:45-3:30 p.m. – headphones in and time to clean. Our dishwasher is broken so there has been a lot of hand washing going on over here. I tackled this mountain of dishes and also picked up around the house.
I am listening to Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant’s new book, Option B. I love listening to an audio book or podcast while doing chores. It makes them about 1,000x more enjoyable.
I also cut up some fresh fruit while I’m cleaning.
3:30-5:40 p.m. – computer time. I do emails, send out an email newsletter for the studio, answer blog comments and more.
4:45 p.m. – break for a snack. I couldn’t tell if I was hungry or dehydrated so I decided to tackle both. I drank a big glass of water and had half a piece of sourdough toast with cashew butter and salted honey.
5:45-7:30 p.m. – drive to the studio, teach hot yoga, clean the room and shower.
Pick up two new pairs of shorts on the way out. I do most of the ordering for the studio. We are a strategic partner for Lululemon so I usually order some things for myself. It’s getting to be that time of the year where I am shorts all day, every day so I got a new Hottie Hot and Speed Shorts.
7:50 p.m. – get home and head outside with Tanner for another ball throwing session. Zoey needs a couple every day! I haven’t walked the girls since I got home because Sullie has been limping a bit and I don’t want her to overdo it.
Sullie has no interest in balls and prefers to chew sticks while outside instead.
8:15 p.m. – snack on chips and hummus while I prep dinner. This is an every night thing around here. And if you can find Roots hummus where you are, buy it! It’s so good. While dinner is cooking I edit the photos for this post.
9 p.m. – eat dinner. Dinner tonight was apple balsamic glazed meatloaf, roasted root veggies and green beans with almonds. All courtesy of 80Fresh. We are loving these meals. Check out this post for more details on 80Fresh and a discount code for PBR readers.
9:15-9:45 p.m. – finish this post while Tanner does dinner dishes and we start evening TV. We’re watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and I’m so torn about it. I like the show but my immediate reaction was that it glorifies teen suicide. I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts if you’re watching it. Two of my close friends with kids and teens have watched it and thought it was great/helpful/relevant for them as parents but my red flags are up. This was a good read from the New York Times.
We’ll head to bed around 10:30 p.m. I teach at 6 a.m. tomorrow so it will be an early morning.
What did you eat for dinner on Wednesday night?
Are you watching/have you watched 13 Reasons Why? Thoughts?
