Last Week…I skipped running because I had been starting to feel a little tight and achy. I thought it was a good plan to take a week off and just rest those muscles preemptively. In the past I wasn’t always great at listening to my body and just pushing through and then ending up injured. I guess I am getting better at that with age.
Last Week…I tried yoga again. It’s been a year or more since I went to yoga class. I quit somewhere around 29 weeks pregnant because I was having to modify like every pose and it was just dumb at that point to keep going. Then postpartum I had too much back pain to do yoga. 🙁 It was disappointing but I did PT and tried to strengthen my core in the gym and I’ve finally felt like I was ready to go back. Well, Sunday I ran on the treadmill (after a week off) and then went to class only to find out the Sunday classes have apparently been cancelled. I’d been looking forward to it for several days and was really disappointed! But the good news is that I did my own yoga stretches instead and my body felt great! I am going to try and find another class!
Last Weekend…I did some food prep for lunches. I cooked three chicken breasts in the crockpot with green enchilada sauce and then shredded the chicken. If you follow my on Instagram you saw it! I also cooked some cauliflower rice to go with the chicken.
Last Week…I had a few days off from work so I was able to kind of change up my workouts. Instead of quickie lunchtime workouts, I was able to add in an extra day of weight lifting, which made me feel really good. And I went swimming on Friday night–my old routine! I’ve kind of missed my Friday night swims. They were super relaxing after a long week and put me in a good mood.
Last Friday…Michael surprised me by coming home from work with ice cream and flowers! The flowers were so beautiful. It was really nice and thoughtful of him and I loved them. In the past, I could never have fresh flowers in the house because Yggdrasil would eat them. Seriously, he’d find them no matter where I hid them, or how high up they were, he’d find them and eat them (and then puke, of course). So it was a little bitter sweet having flowers on the dining room table all weekend. I enjoyed seeing them, and I know it won’t always be a reminder of my kitty, but this time it was.
Last Friday…Logan and I packed up his bottles together and put them in the garage. It was a long time coming (we procrastinated because bottles were easier) but it was a bit sad at the same time. He’s growing up. He’s a little guy now, not a baby. But I do love having our counter space back in the kitchen!
This Week…I am recommitted to trying to be low carb, at least during the work week. I am really trying, even though I don’t like this diet and find it a struggle.
