Guess what? I got a job teaching yoga at the Gold's Gym a few minutes from my house! I'm so excited!
It's been about a year since I've taught any sort of fitness classes like I used to in college and I was really missing it. I had looked briefly at the gym in York, but they weren't hiring at the time. I hadn't even really started looking for real back in D.C., but when I took that yoga class last Monday on a whim, the instructor mentioned they were looking for a new yoga instructor to replace one who was about to have a baby.
He recommended me to the director of fitness programs and I met with her last night and she offered me the job. I start Thursday night!!!! For now I'll just be teaching one hour-long yoga class once a week, but I think that's the perfect way to break back into teaching easily.
Plus the best part, is that one of the perks of being an instructor at Gold's is that they give you a free membership! So I can go whenever I want for free now! How awesome is that!
In knee news, it wasn't as bad today as it was yesterday. I think resting it is definitely helping. All I've been doing is my commute to work, which is only about 1.5 miles round trip. I'm registered for a Valentine's Day 5K on Saturday and I think with a few more days rest I'll be OK to run it. I just won't race it. I don't want to risk making things worth for my half marathon in March.
In nutrition news, I've kind of been all over the place lately. For the last few months, I had wanted nothing to do with sweets, like not even at the holidays. But lately the past few weeks, I've been really wanting them again. Maybe it's just because people have been bringing all kinds of food to the office lately and so I see it and "want" it. Maybe it's because I haven't been able to run or really workout a ton lately. I've also been really bad about eating at home lately. I've been eating a lot of Subway (which isn't horrible because I always get the veggie on whole wheat) and other take out food. Some of it is the BF's fault. He doesn't keep food in his house so when I'm with him, we almost always go out to eat. The rest of it is just my laziness.
I'm kind of getting sick of it though, so at the grocery store tonight, I picked up some easier dinner stuff. Yes, I grabbed a couple Kashi frozen dinners, but sometimes that's what I have energy for. But I also picked up some oatmeal and all kinds of fun toppings. After reading Caitlin's blog and seeing all her yummy oatmeals, I got a little inspired. I don't have time to make it in the morning, but it's a quick, easy and healthy dinner.
Tonight I made it with strawberries, some berry trail mix and granola sprinkled on the top. It was delicious.
That's it for tonight, I'm off to finish watching the Biggest Loser!
