It’s been a while since I’ve done 20 min of HIIT but tonight I decided to give it a go with what I’ve got! 20 min✅ one leg to bear most of my weight through✅ tiny corridor✅ a set of 5 lb. dumbbells✅ brunch foods running through my vessels✅ 🙂 . . 20 min AMRAP: 10 single leg burpees • 12 v-ups • 20 Bulgarian split squats • 8 push-up to front and side raise #justmove
Less pressure. Because I have limited options with what I can do for my workout, I feel less pressure to choose the “perfect” workout each day. It’s very literally a matter of, “whatever I can do, I will do, and I’m happy with that.” It’s freeing, and I’ve found it to be a blessing in disguise with this femur fiasco.
MRI. I got one on Friday morning at 6am and I swear I was falling asleep in that large, loud tube they put you through. It was my first MRI ever, and what an interesting experience it was! They gave me a blanket to stay warm, large headphones to block out the noise (with the option to play music for you but I declined because I wanted to try to nap for the 30 min I was in there), and the machine is a painless, loud as heck, gentle giant. I’m glad I went in feet first though, because I think my slight claustrophobia would have freaked me out a little bit. Results will come back tomorrow I hope!
Spontaneity. I made a spontaneous trip to Providence, RI this weekend to visit my friend Zoe, who was hosting essentially a Catholic women’s brunch at her apartment. It was totally off brand for me to make a decision like that so last minute, but I was feeling good about the amount of work I had to do, and how often do I get to do spontaneous things like this? Making plans also helps me to actually get work done rather than derp around because “I have soooo much timeeee.”
Brunch was a blast! It was a super girly Pinterest-y thing to start, but then we started talking about farts and that’s when the real party started. I made little ham and cheese crescent rolls, and boy do I love pillsbury crescent rolls. Buttery, pillowy goodness.
Also spontaneous? Getting burgers, fries and shakes last night with my friends Abby and Joy. It was good for the soul.
Monday, here we come!
So tell me:
What was the best spontaneous thing you’ve done recently?
Have you ever gotten an MRI before? Did you enjoy the experience?
What did you do this weekend?
