It’s been one of those days…but I kind of just have to laugh about it. It culminated with my iPod dying 10 minutes before my yoga class started this evening and Brandon throwing his back out at his bowling league. Yes, you read that right. My husband is in a bowling league and he threw his back out bowling. Really?
I tried to take a picture of Brandon in his compromised state but he vetoed that going on the blog so you get sad Sullie instead. I do feel bad for Brandon though. He is in a lot of pain. I’m going to stay home with him tomorrow and get him to the doctor. I did hurt my back in yoga teacher training earlier this year but I’ve never totally “thrown my back out” so I can’t even relate to the amount of pain he seems to be in. It’s hard because I can’t really do anything to help.
The iPod situation is annoying because they just don’t last. This iPod is less than a year old! Ugh! I have to replace it ASAP because I am constantly using it for my classes.
So there were some bumps in the road but overall it was an awesome day. I started my day bright and early at Flex + Fit to teach a Buff Yoga (yoga with weights) class. This is only my second week teaching this class format but I’m having SO much fun with it!
Breakfast when I got to work was a slice of Emily’s Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread and a Cherry Fage Greek yogurt.
I had a meeting at 1:30 this afternoon but I wasn’t really hungry before. I decided to wait until after to have lunch. Big mistake. Our meeting went until almost 4 and I ended up having a seriously late lunch. I was famished!
It was the quintessential summer lunch. A tomato sandwich with avocado, spinach and havarti on whole wheat and a juicy, sweet peach. Yum!
I taught a hot vinyasa class at Y2 this evening. Luckily, I knew that my teacher was planning on attending my class tonight so I was able to send an “SOS I have no music!” message and use his. It was kind of fun to teach to someone else’s playlist. It was like a little surprise every time the next song came on. The highlight was back-to-back Katy Perry and Kesha. 😉
I rushed home from class to get Brandon in the house and comfortable. After I got him set up in a chair in the living room, I whipped up some dinner.
When desperate, make a quinoa bowl! I sauteed onions and garlic and then added 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 cup of water and some fresh diced tomatoes. Covered and simmered for 15ish minutes. Served on a bed of spinach and topped with leftover grilled eggplant and zucchini from last night’s dinner along with a dollop of Greek yogurt and parmesan.
My grandmother swears that bad things come in threes…I’m praying that I don’t get the third tomorrow! 😉
Do you believe in “bad things come in threes.” I have to admit that I do! When it rains, it pours!
