Good morning! It is cold and pouring down rain again here in Charlotte but I’m determined not to let the weather get me down today! This has to be the last push of cold weather…April is just around the corner.
I didn’t get my post up last night because Brandon picked up Love and Other Drugs from the Red Box. I have mentioned this before but I am terrible about sitting through movies. I usually blog during them and end up having no idea what happened. I decided that I would actually turn my computer off and watch the movie (which admittedly was made easier due to Jake Gyllenhaall’s starring role 😉 ).
Love and Other Drugs wasn’t amazing but it was easy to watch and entertaining. I thought Ann Hathaway was great and there were some really funny scenes. Note that this is NOT something you’d want to watch with your parents or kids! Has anyone else seen it? What did you think?
We had leftovers from the taco fiesta for dinner.
I made a quesadilla with chicken, black beans, spinach, tomatoes and cheese. Topped with plain Greek yogurt and salsa. Quesadillas are kind of like omelets in my book…you can just throw in whatever you have in the fridge! Great for using left overs.
I subbed another yoga class after work (the same one as last Tuesday) and it went really well. Brandon has been sweet to come the past two weeks and has given me great feedback. He said that last night’s class was a 100% improvement over the previous week’s. I even had several people ask after class when I teach regularly so I think that’s a good sign! I am encouraged that I’m going to get this yoga teacher thing down! It is certainly very different from teaching my normal strength training classes…although last night I did challenge them quite a bit with abdominal work! 😛
I wanted to get my own workout in after class (I do not participate with them – I just walk around the room as I teach and assist) so I took advantage of sunny skies and mild temperatures and ran. I knocked out four miles and they felt easy and fast. I love runs like that!
I packed a salad to eat at my desk for lunch.
Spinach, mushrooms, strawberries, blue cheese, apples and dried cranberries. Dressed with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. I love the combination of strawberries and balsamic. I had a piece of toast on the side and a mini PB&J Larabar for a snack.
And wrapping up yesterday’s eats with breakfast.
Banana coconut oatmeal. I am loving this new combination! Recipe is here.
I leave you with the tea tag from my Yogi Green Tea Kombucha (best tea ever and the tags always brighten my day!).
“If you don’t love where you came from, you can’t love where you are going.” Life is a beautiful journey!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
