And I’m watching the Rachel Zoe Project again. This is seriously a problem – I’m obsessed. She’s trying to cook in this episode and she’s clueless. I’m loving it! It makes me feel less bad about having no fashion sense! 😉
I went to ashtanga this morning for all of 20 minutes…and then I rolled up my mat and left. My left upper hamstring is not in a good place right now. I’m going for a chiropractic/physical therapy consult tomorrow so please, please, please pray that it’s nothing too serious. I’ve already given myself a Google diagnosis that drove me to tears. This has come out of nowhere and I’m really upset about it. I’ve been a big ball of nerves all day with a terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Let’s talk about happier things. Like food, fun workout clothes and BodyPump!
Lunch today was another veggie sandwich.
Hummus, tomatoes, spinach, red peppers, cucumbers and avocado on Great Harvest Dakota. Cantaloupe on the side.
I taught BodyPump after work. I was really worried about how my hamstring would hold up but it felt okay. The only time I felt discomfort was during squats so I took it easy. I was so excited that Nicole showed up for class today. LOVE having friends in class! 😀
I was also so excited to sport my new workout gear. The ladies from Lululemon Charlotte were so sweet to attend my 6 a.m. class Monday and bring me clothes to test. Although I’ve seen their amazing clothes all over the gym and yoga studio, I have never purchased Lululemon. I am officially a convert. The clothes are so high quality and feel great on.
I am especially loving their famous Power Y Tank. I’ve worn it to a yoga class and BodyPump. It’s the perfect length, feels very supportive and the built-in cups are a godsend. I will definitely be getting several more of these.
I have a habit of buying cheap workout clothes from Target and Old Navy but this is a great reminder that sometimes it’s totally worth it to splurge (especially if you live in workout clothes the way that I do). The quality is just unbeatable. THANK YOU LULULEMON! You have a new fan!
Dinner tonight was not exciting but delicious.
You’ve already seen a very similar dinner this week but I had to recreate it since my fridge is still overflowing with farmer’s markets veggies. I roasted eggplant, zucchini and okra with a drizzle of olive oil and Dizzy Pig rubs. I switched up my side item and made millet for the first time. I cooked it the same way that I do most grains – first I sauteed onion and garlic in a little olive oil and then added a half a cup of millet and a little over a full cup of water. I seasoned it with Kosher salt and then stirred in some chopped parsley at the end. I topped it all with a blob of plain Greek yogurt. Sorry for the unoriginal meals. I promise you’ll see more variety next week!
Have you tried any new “trendy” health foods lately? In my last two posts I’ve blogged about a new Larabar flavor, quinoa and millet. Yum!
