If you saw last Friday’s post, you read that I had some bad luck. The good news is that it all got resolved. Bella is healing up nicely and by Sunday afternoon I think she was going stir-crazy. She started running laps in the yard (with her booties on). Her paws are healing up and she’s not limping anymore, so that’s good.
I’m just glad she’s feeling better. I hate it when she’s hurt. I feel so helpless. In other news, my car was fixed and covered under warranty so I just had to pay the $50 deductible. This is the first car I’ve ever had a warranty on (and honestly it’s the first issue I’ve had with the car needing to be fixed since I got it 5 years ago) so it was a nice surprise not having to pay an arm and a leg!
Unfortunately, we weren’t so lucky with Michael’s car. 🙁 Long story short, check out our new ride:
Subaru Outback! We’ve been talking about getting one for a few years now and almost bought one a few years ago (thankfully we didn’t because Michael got laid off a few months later). It was time. Michael’s car was too expensive to fix when it broke down and we needed something reliable. While I’m not unhappy that we have a new car, it came at the worst possible time. We’d planned on waiting until after the wedding/honeymoon to get it. The Universe decided differently!
In other news, I went back to The Warrior Room. I think the last time I was there was the beginning-ish of March. I ran out of my classes that I bought and decided to wait a bit to re-up. Besides, it’s good to rotate your workouts and change things up. Ashley generously gifted me some free classes as a wedding gift! YAY!
I went to the Kettlebell Endurance class Tuesday night. It was SO GOOD TO BE BACK! I forgot how much I missed going there. My friend Debby joined me, too. The Kettlebell Endurance class seemed to be a morph of the conditioning (training) class and the fundamental (boot camp) class. I was glad I’d worked on the kettlebell swings at the gym on my own because I picked it right back up.
There were a lot of plank jumps, squat jumps, burpees, v-ups, hill sprints outside, and various kettlebell swings (the snatch, high pull, etc). We also had to go outside and walk around the block holding two kettlebells above our head. It’s a lot harder than you think it would be!
Nice! So glad to be back! Class finished up and I stretched and then headed home. Biofreeze, compression tights, a hot bath with epsom salts and protein for dinner! I knew I was going to be really sore. Dinner was steak with bleu cheese, brussels sprouts and quinoa. I was famished.
Wednesday I woke up surprisingly NOT sore. That doesn’t bode well. I think that means I will be crippled on Thursday and Friday this week…Anyways, glad to be back at the Warrior Room and hoping I see some improvement in my strength. I’ve kind of slacked on the weight lifting as I’ve been amping up the running. Stay tuned!
