Josh Groban is Amazing and All Day Concert

This morning I woke up and decided to do another 3ish (slightly more) mile run.  I followed up with 20 minutes of yoga.

I actually slept in until almost 10:30 today… yikes!  So by the time I finished the run and yoga, it was time for lunch.  I wanted something big and veggieful, so I went for a salad – I sauteed some veggies (eggplant, celery, carrot, and peppers in a little sesame oil; later added rice vinegar and soy sauce) and threw them on top of romaine.  For my protein I added turkey bacon – and I had a piece plain on the side too!  I love this stuff.  It’s from Whole Foods and was on sale this week (2 for $7).

We went to this humongous concert today for the Bridge School Benefit – Niel Young, Cat Power, Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Smashing Pumpkins, Josh Groban, Norah Jones, and Jack Johnson (in that order)!  What I did NOT know was that it was going to last almost 7 hours!  Right before we left our friend told us that’s what he’d heard, so I pulled together a giant snack pack filled with wraps, veggies, and fruit for us to have throughout the show (ampitheatre food is awful and expensive, and so not worth it for me).  I used my snack pack a lot.  We actually walked to and from the concert (2+ miles each way), so this event took up most of our day!

  • 3 whole wheat la tortilla factory wraps (unpictured)
  • 2 apples
  • a bunch of baby carrots

When we finally got home I made dinner – fried rice for Bobby and our friend that came with us, and a nice stirfry (onion, organic chicken-gouda sausage, eggplant, pumpkin, peppers, carrots, cabbage, celery, 1 whole apple, all topped with bacon bits) for me.  I also prepped a bunch of raw veggies (red and yellow peppers, carrots) and had them with BBQ sauce (again).  The chicken-gouda sausage is really yummy – but I get sick of it because we bought 21 links from Costco at one point!  I try to use it every once in a while so that we don’t overdo it icon smile Josh Groban is Amazing and All Day Concert

    Wow, that’s a lot of bands! Glad you had snacks on hand – I hate that when you go to concerts or a ball game, your food/beer costs almost more than the tickets themselves!

    Happy Monday!

    Oh my gosh, what a fun mix of bands/artists. I love when concerts have more than one band I like instead of just a bad opener that nobody really listens to.

    Divya – I do Vinyasa yoga normally, but I’ll do other kinds occasionally. Vinyasa is definitely my favorite though :) Thanks for asking!

    Oh I adore those fruit crisps (except the strawberry ones, for some reason).

    CCV – I don’t like the strawberry ones either! I always pick them out and give them to Bobby when I have the strawberry banana kind.
