So Monday morning I taught spinning. I was really, REALLY tired. Like, all day.
I got home at 5:45 p.m. and ate a small snack of some cottage cheese and pita bread. Then I was like "well, I'll take a nap before Anna's 7 p.m. yoga class."
I laid down at 6 p.m....and woke up at 7 A.M.!!!!!!!!!!
How's that for rest?
Anyway, then last night I went to yoga, and afterward made this Lemony Chickpea Stir-fry from 101 Cookbooks.com:
No, this was not MY creation, this is a picture of Heidi's creation. I didn't have the energy to take a picture. And mine didn't look as pretty anyway. I didn't have kale, but I DID have eggplant (lots of it), so I cut up the eggplant, put it in the microwave for 1:30, and then added it into the stir-fry before the zucchini for about 2 minutes. Then I added some soba noodles to the mix since it was my main course. Yum! I had it with a glass of the 2006 Trentadue Sauvignon Blanc and it made for a nice meal. (I went to Trentadue on Saturday when I got back from SF because they were having this HUGE Harvest Sale - basically when you bought a case of wine - mix 'n match - they'd give you 50% off. WHOA. Needless to say, I had some fun and came home with more wine and less money...)
I would DEFINITELY make it again. I might even add some garlic to it.
Anyway, by the time I was done with that and all cleaned up, I was ready for bed. In yoga we did one of my favorite poses, the Bird of Paradise.
I can't quite get my leg up that far, but it is by FAR one of the best hip openers for me and I always feel soooooooo much better after! However, between that and the arm balances and the handstands (or my halfway attempts to getting to feel comfortable with handstands...), I was TIRED!
So now it's Wednesday and I still haven't written my race report. I'll be sure to get on that ASAP.
