Let me start off by saying I am SO inspired by the goals that you want to achieve in the next 300 days. Keep them coming, please! I’m going to do a round up tomorrow when I post the giveaway winner. You guys are doing AMAZING things!
I hope everyone has had a happy Easter! I started my day with a personal practice before teaching a 90 minute hot class. It was a beautiful morning. I practiced ashtanga with the door open, birds were chirping and a cool breeze was blowing in. The students in my hot class were awesome today. Sunlight was streaming in the windows and the vibe in the room was wonderful. I am so grateful to have this studio to practice and teach.
After class I came home to put the finishing touches on my contribution to our Easter lunch.
Macaroni and cheese! Featuring a mix of white cheddar and emmentaler cheese and topped with breadcrumbs. Yum!
We had an Easter celebration at my in law’s – egg hunting and a feast!
We kicked off the festivities with mimosas while we watched the little ones egg hunt.
And then moved inside for our Easter lunch.
My mother in law always does a great job with festive decor. 😛
We had a great spread – roasted lamb, ham, roasted new potatoes, English peas, deviled eggs, mac and cheese, salad, asparagus and biscuits.
My plate + more salad.
And of course, dessert. Carrot cake and raspberry almond tart. I LOVE carrot cake. It’s a toss up whether carrot or strawberry cake is my most favorite!
So I have to admit that I struggle a little bit with holiday eating. I really, really dislike eating a large meal in the middle of the afternoon. I like lunch food for lunch and a larger meal with dinner food for dinner. When I eat a big meal like this in the middle of the day, it really throws me off. I’m sitting here blogging at 9:45 p.m. and I’m not hungry but feel like I should eat something. Does anyone else struggle with this or am I just crazy?
Updated to add that I decided to have a toasted bagel thin. One half with pb and honey and the other with almond butter and jam. When in doubt, turn to nut butter! 😉
Hope you have a great start to the week! Don’t forget to enter the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bar giveaway!
