It was a busy Tuesday! I kicked off the day by teaching a 7 a.m. yoga class followed by a yoga private and a training client. I had a little bit of downtime before my lunch class so I took a break from the gym and headed over to Sunflour Bakery to get some computer work done. I feel like I am never, ever caught up on emails and blog chores.
I love French press coffee so I ordered one immediately upon arrival. Sunflour has such a nice, bright ambiance and it was a needed change of scenery from Starbucks. In addition to great coffee, they feature delicious baked goods and offer sandwiches. They also serve beer and wine but it was 10:30 a.m. Just an FYI for my local readers.
I was able to hold off on lunch until about 11:30 and then hunger became unbearable. I have been so hungry this week! Grilled cheese on sourdough sounded perfect. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods. And of course I had a snickerdoodle cookie. If I’m at a bakery and there are cookies, I will never have the power to say no.
I was hungry again once I arrived home from teaching my lunch class. Teaching from 12:30-1:30 really puts a kink in my lunch eating. If I eat before, I’m starving by mid-afternoon. If I eat after, I’m starving during class. I am going to have to figure out an eating schedule that works ASAP because I just picked up two more lunch classes at Charlotte Athletic Club to cover for someone who is out on maternity leave. I will now be teaching the lunch class at CAC every day but Wednesday and on that day I agreed to cover for another instructor at the Y for the next month at 1. Yikes!
Snack was apple slices with peanut butter and a drizzle of honey. When faced with insatiable hunger, eat nut butter.
Val had some big news to share! She was featured in O Magazine this month in their “Six Word Memoirs” feature. I was so excited that she had a copy of the magazine with her so I could check it out. What a cool opportunity! Val is an amazing person with a great story. You should definitely check out her blog. She just moved from Charlotte to Charlottesville to open a Pure Barre!
We started out with bread and butter…which was pretty much a necessity once I decided to order a salad for my entree.
For dinner I had a salad with mixed greens, romaine, candied pecans, dried cranberries, green apple and grilled salmon. I have been terrible about gutting my vegetables in lately so this was a nice treat!
Hope it’s been a good week for you. Sorry I didn’t get this post up sooner but the Internet was down this morning. 🙁
