I mentioned on Monday that this was going to be a big week in the exercise department for me because of how many classes I needed to cover for other instructors on vacation.
Welp. Yesterday, I taught 3 classes, starting with BODYCOMBAT at 5:45 AM. The members said that they got a little scared when they saw me coming. Let’s just say I’m not very, ahem, low-key in my teaching style (y’all saw my expressions here, right?). But, much to my delight, I managed to contract some sort of crud on Wednesday, which almost completely robbed me of my voice—especially the high registers. #SARCASM. If I tried to holler like I normally do, I ended up sounding like a yodeler who’d gotten goosed right in the middle of a performance. So, basically my partial-laryngitis forced me to tone it down…which was probably a good thing for me and for the participants of 5:45 AM Combat.
As you can see from this post’s existence, I survived. But I got home at about 7:30 last night so hungry that I’m not sure I tasted one bite of the large plate of chicken and rice I inhaled. And I still wanted more. I also smelled (and looked, perhaps?) like a water-buffalo who hadn’t actually encountered any water in 6 months.
Which means that my #30daystohappyhubby (Husband Encouragement Challenge) update should probably have gone something like: “I’m so grateful for a husband who still gives me hugs when I am reeking with essence of unbathed water buffalo and shoveling my food in like a field hand with a five minute lunch break.”
Instead, I didn’t even do one because the graphic I tried to upload to Instagram was too big for their tiny little box, and then I got distracted and forgot to fix it, and then I got reeeeeeeally sleepy (gee, I wonder why) and went to bed instead.
So, I’ll put it on here:
This is my husband. He’s a good listener, and he has great advice. Which was especially awesome this week as I was stressing about (and therefore trying to ignore…because that’s what mature, balanced people do, right?) an issue that needed addressing. Ultimately, I followed his suggestion, and everything turned out great. But I’m just glad to have a husband who takes the time to hear me out and give wise counsel.
So, how are you guys?
Because, my goodness, I’m chatty today!
And hungry, too (yes, still).
Which is why I decided to feature a some yummy-looking recipes from last week’s party. With summer fast approaching, I can’t wait to give these a try:
Especially these Mini-Raspberry Pies from Sweet Southern Blue:
and this Strawberry Spritzer from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom
and these Lemon Blueberry Pancakes from Natasha in Oz
And, even though I don’t much care for coconut, I’d be willing to give this delicious-looking Coconut Fudge Poke Cake from Inside BruCrew Life a try!
I do love some good Mac, though, so this Four Cheese Macaroni from Night Owl Corner? I’m all over that.
And this Avocado and Black Bean Chicken Salad from Domestic Bliss Squared.
Alrighty then. I best get myself to the kitchen before I start licking my computer screen.
