Today was GO GO GO!
I slept in a little due to a late-ish night out with friends (pics on Insta!) and then started my day at a research meeting with my dean. He has become a really great mentor, so we always chat about everything, not just the research project. It’s about to ramp up with data collection starting this fall, so that’s good! But we also went over some plans for wellness activities at the start of the school year and even some curriculum ideas.
After the meeting I swang by to chat with the curriculum coordinator and student affairs administrator, then picked up a friend I was taking to the airport.
I grabbed a smoothie on the way home because I’m addicted to Smoothie King’s Nutty Super Grain (determined to come up with a good copy cat version at home!) while talking to bestie LB and Brittany on the phone. Once home I did a quick yoga flow and a meditation via HeadSpace. Gus tried to do some yoga with me!! My mat is full of hairs and paw prints and I sort of love it:)
Next on the agenda was a hair cut – It’d been 6 months! I’ve gone to the same lady since I was 11, and I totally trust her. I usually just give her an idea on length and let her do her thing. This time she created a “lob” type cut that’s longer in the front than the back. And the best part is that she thinned it a ton! I have so much hair.
I ran a bunch of errands after my hair cut then made it home just in time to put together a quick playlist. Three friends agreed to come over and let me practice teach them a yoga class!! It was my first time teaching a full hour class (so far we’ve only done chunks at a time in teacher training) and it was SO fun. They were total rockstars and it was really helpful to learn how to teach (and how not to teach!) people that aren’t familiar with the Journey Into Power sequence and True North Alignment like must of us at the studio are. I can’t WAIT to teach more!
They were sweaty messes by the end, and said they felt super lose and relaxed. Goal accomplished 🙂
Post yoga they decided they wanted to go out to dinner, so I joined them at Guerrilla Street Food. This place started as a food truck but got so popular that they opened a storefront. It has a really unique menu of Filipino inspired food. My bowl had rice and pork and some amazing sauces and it was awesome. Ian’s meal came with out a plate and was basically just Filipino “nachos” on a tray, which made him love it even more. SO much food!
Now I’m home, stuffed, and finally sitting down to get some work done. I start another weekend of teacher training and also have aunts and uncles in town visiting so I’m going to try to use my free time to spend with them. Then Monday I’m heading off for a long-overdue trip to Louisville.
Talk to y’all later!!!
