News at Home: Let Summer Break Commence!!!
Y’all my summer break officially began this week and I feel like it’s the FIRST summer break that I’ve really just decided to not work and to focus on me for the summer. And guess what? It’s been GREAT!!
Monday I spent at home, doing blog work and stuff around the house. I also started binge watching Jane the Virgin and I’m so addicted y’all!!
Tuesday was a busier day – I went to see Ocean’s 8 with a co-worker. I had this Groupon (bought without reading the fine print correctly) that was going to expire and could only be used Monday – Friday BEFORE 5pm. So it was a mid-day movie with someone who would be available… co-worker get-together! And then I had book club that night. A great day all around.
Wednesday I went to my podiatrist and got my boot off!! He told me to avoid the high impact – so no running, jumping, etc. It’s hard but until this weekend, I’ve been really good. He also told me it was okay to go to my fitness retreat (where I’m at as I type this!) but to ice my foot after every workout (which I’m doing right now – post Turbo Kick). I went to the gym that night and it was GREAT to be back. Felt like coming home, honestly. I missed it so much. I did a spin class and Hump Day (butt and legs!)
Thursday I started my day of with a workout at this gym called Rise Nation and I really enjoyed the workout. My legs are still sore from it though! It’s a vertical stair climber workout. You’ll have to google it to see what I mean, you have to see to understand. And then I had my weekly massage (yes, weekly! I work out too much to not take care of my muscles :)!) And then I started packing….
Which takes us to Friday where I repacked a million times. I had packing anxiety because I was afraid to bring too much. I think I brought the exact right amount though, so it worked out! I did a Target run and – NSV – bought clothes in a size L! It’s a crazy feeling being able to buy things at Target in such smaller sizes. And then I was off to my Fitness Retreat. Right now it’s Saturday afternoon and we’ve already had 4 workouts, 3 meals, some games and an amazing time. I’m being really good about icing my foot… but not so good about the not hopping. I just get so into it! I’m getting ready to hit the pool, then we have another workout, shower time, dinner, and we’re going on a sunset cruise!! Check out my Instagram for pictures if you’d like. Here’s one of many posts from before our turbo kick class!
I head home today after another workout, empowerment seminar and some time at the pool again. I also plan to take an amazing bath in the giant pool! It’s been a great week and I’m so glad I decided to take care of me this summer!
I haven’t done a whole lot with the blog the last couple days because of the retreat, but I was really good earlier in the week and I plan to be again when I get home. Loving the feeling of getting caught up!
I was really struggling at the beginning of this week. I just felt so hungry and just unmotivated. But I got my boot off, got back to Grit (my gym) and I’m feeling so motivated and amazing again. This retreat is going to really kick me back in gear… I feel like a different person than I was even a year ago. I never would have dreamed I’d be here doing something like this and loving every minute!
Oh and — my goal of doing a burpee? I did several half-burpees today!! I’m so excited and can’t believe how close I’m getting to that goal. Woo!
Weight has been kind of yo-yo up and down this month but hopefully I’ll get home from the retreat to find myself down a couple pounds and fully reset to keep loosing!
