I’m emerging after a long (but completely awesome) weekend of teacher training. Saturday was a crazy busy day so I took a break from blogging and taking pictures. I started training at 7:30 a.m. and we went through to 5:30 p.m. When I got home from training we had to head straight to an engagement party for one of Brandon’s friends. I finally collapsed into bed around 11 p.m. but had the time change to contend with so I lost an hour of sleep. Luckily, I was able to sleep until about 7:15 this morning so I felt pretty good going into today.
The hardest part of the “clean eating challenge” so far has been giving up coffee…as anticipated. I had a killer headache yesterday but today was much better.
I packed breakfast to eat after the morning ashtanga practice.
Plain 2% Greek yogurt with Bob’s Red Mill Muesli, banana, blueberries and chia seeds.
We had a 90-minute break for lunch today so I took advantage of it to come home and visit with Brandon and Sullie and enjoy the beautiful day.
I quickly changed into shorts and a tank, assembled a salad and took my lunch outside to soak up the sun.
Giant delicious salad with spinach, mixed greens, tofu, apple, dried cranberries, carrots, celery, green pepper, almonds and colby-jack cheese. Toast on the side.
Our afternoon session of teacher training was so much fun. We sat outside of the bookstore that is in the same shopping center as the studio and reviewed everyone’s class sequences that we did for homework. I think we were all happy to get a change of scenery and some fresh air.
It was especially entertaining when we parts of sequences got demoed – there were other people on the patio laughing at us and taking pictures with their phones.
It was great to leave training at 6 p.m. with the sun still shining. I LOVE daylight savings time and can’t wait to take advantage of the extra daylight to go on walks with Sullie, run more, grill and eat outside! What do you guys love most about the longer days?
I was starving when I got home so I made an old school snack.
Ants on a log!!!
We met Brandon’s parents for dinner at Brixx.
I have been so busy lately that I haven’t even seen my in law’s since we hosted the Super Bowl party! That is crazy given that they live right here in Charlotte. It was so good to catch up with them!
Brandon and I split the Brixx Salad – mixed greens, pistachios, goat cheese and croutons.
I ordered my all-time favorite, the Artichoke Pizza on wheat crust. I love this pizza – pesto, mozz, artichokes, sundried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. I ate the whole thing! I’m not sure that it fit perfectly into my clean eating plan but it was meatless and I’ve been doing good with the sugar, coffee and alcohol so I’m okay with it!
Off to figure out what I’m teaching for BodyPump tomorrow morning. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
