Hello and happy Thursday!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared any Sullie shots on the blog and she’s been extra cute as always so here are two pictures I posted to Facebook and Instagram today. I have been obsessed with Instagram lately. I am also pretty obsessed with Sullie’s frog legs. The girl has loved to lay like this since she was a baby puppy.
It’s been business as usual over here…minus my workouts. I don’t know what’s going on with me but I’ve taken four complete rest days in the last 10 days. I mean, part of it was definitely due to having a cold but in general I’ve just needed a physical and mental break from everyday workouts. The workouts I have gotten in have been really quality (like the BEAR!) but in general I haven’t been motivated to run or keep up with my yoga practice the way I usually do. I’m not especially worried about it…it is what it is. I am sure that I’ll get back in my groove soon enough. Maybe it has something to do with adding early mornings back into my schedule and I’m going through an adjustment period? Who knows.
It should come as no surprise that nothing’s changed with my appetite. I can always eat! Grilled pork chop, grilled plantains and baked kale chips with cheese.
Lunches have centered around leftovers and salads. Carrot butternut ginger soup and a salad with spinach, chick peas, avocado, artichokes, pecans and goat cheese.
I was trying to talk myself into going to a yoga class last night when a friend texted and asked if I wanted to grab tapas and drinks at Good Food on Montford. YES was the answer to that. Mussels + wine + a great friend = middle of the week perfection. We shared mussels with green curry and coconut sauce (dipping bread in the broth is one of life’s greatest joys…I swear), gnocchi with mushrooms, chicken, arugula and parmesan and we each got the arugula salad with maple poached pears, hazlenuts, goat cheese and pear butter.
Annnnddd then we decided to order a second glass of wine and dessert. Apple cobbler with homemade rum raisin ice cream. I’m not sure that a random Wednesday night can get much better than this. I slept like a baby last night.
I had clients at 6 and 7:30 this morning. It’s been really great to have the opportunity to start my days early and doing something I love. I kind of got out of the groove with training for a while and only had a couple clients but I have been SO happy since I’ve added a few new clients. Everyone has been amazing to work with and it has been a huge reminder of why I do what I do and why I love it so much. While I enjoy my day-to-day responsibilities of managing the gym, my heart still loves to be out on the floor teaching, training and talking with everyone. I’m super lucky that I get to do both and call it my job. Pretty amazing.
If you could do any job in the world (BIG dreams here, even if you think it’s never gonna happen), what would it be? Something to think about, huh?
