It was a rainy and chilly day in Charlotte and my mood was pretty blah to match it. It is crazy how much my mood is impacted by the weather. Even if I’m not having the best day, warm sunshine and blue skies can make me feel at ease. After many days of abundant sunshine, I was not prepared for today’s gross weather.
I planned on doing the evening CrossFit class at Metro but needed to come home and check on Sullie first. The next thing I knew I was nestled under the covers with my laptop and not going anywhere. Oops.
There was no guilt about that because yesterday’s class was SO hard and I was plenty tired from it and still in recovery mode.
We started class by warming up with dynamic stretching and burpees and then worked pistol squats (one leg) power snatches for our skill. Then it was Workout of the Day time…it didn’t look so bad on the board but good lord, the hang cleans nearly did me in. I was pretty slow on this WOD but I did the best I could.
I had to teach a yoga class at Metro after doing this WOD and then I came home to eat and collapse.
I sauteed eggplant and portobello mushrooms with leftover grilled chicken and caramelized onion marinara. I served it with brown rice pasta over some arugula. Then I slept…and slept hard.
Since I had such a long day yesterday and knew I had a late meeting tonight I went into work a little later today. I slept until 7 and then took about 45 minutes of a hot yoga class at Y2 before subbing another class.
Breakfast before yoga was goat milk yogurt with banana, granola, cinnamon, strawberries, dried cranberries and Barney Butter.
I had a lunch meeting and ordered a salad with pecans, apples, herbed goat cheese and grilled salmon.
Look more salad! We had a coach’s meeting at Brixx tonight so I started with a house salad. It’s just hardwired into me. Eating pizza, must have salad first. 😉
And then I ordered my most favorite Brixx pizza for dinner – the Artichoke. It has roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, basil pesto and mozzarella. Yum pizza.
Time for bed!
