Because sometimes Mondays can be one, and I hope this all made your Mondays off to a better start. I freakin’ love this guy.
Anywho, I got in a great workout Friday! Although, when I went inside I couldn’t feel my fingers or toes hahaha it was definitely a cold one! I took these pictures to mark some progress for myself. Yes I’ve lost some muscle, and yes I’m okay with that. When injuries are on the line, I like to scale back and take it easy. But I was pleased to see that I haven’t lost everything, my little one pack is still hanging in there (barely hahaha) and I’ve still got some muscle in my arms. Some is better than none, and that goes for working out too! You see, I ijured my shoulders 2 years ago in swimming, and they pop all the time now. And unfortunately lifting heavy makes them pop more, and with the popping comes pain. So, I’ve gone done in weight in almost all my workouts, some like leg press, I haven’t, because they don’t effect my shoulder at all. But from here, we will see what happens :). Plus I have 755+ miles on my shoes…..not good hahaha I need some new ones, but I’m waiting for the after Christmas sales to buy some, so my runs last week all turned into longer sorta easier runs. It was a nice change of pace to chill out on going hard all the time. But I definitely miss pushing myself!
And when I came home early on Friday, I decided I should pull my book out and just read my little heart out! It was so relaxing, and Little Miss curled up next to me and slept, I was a happy camper :)
My run on Saturday was a little confusing. I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I started out with a slow 1/2 mile which ended up being a warm up, and the rest of the 1.5 miles was HIIT. I always have a hard time when I don’t do it for a week!
After my run I got to do some hair :). Which is nice since I’ve been missing it lately! My aunt was tired of the blond and wanted some product that would make her hair soft. So I bought her some Super Skinny (I talked about it HERE) we dyed it a chocolately brown and I curled it for her since her perm has grown out so much. Total, it took me about 4 hours to do it, I’m slow and haven’t been doing it for a while so that was expected haha but my feet sure hurt afterward. I forgot what it was like to stand on your feet for 4 hours straight. But she LOVED IT, and that’s what matters! I wasn’t sure she would like the color, but she was thrilled with it, and she loved how soft the Super Skinny made her hair. And now I’m perming her hair next month, now that should be interesting haha.
All morning on Sunday I spent doing stupid math. Seriously, I’m so over that class, can’t wait to get it over with! And I’m crossing my fingers I keep my A, but this take home final, hasn’t been easy, so I know all break I will checking for my grades! I’m desperate to know!
Other than that, I’ve been on Pinterest pinning like crazy, I finally see why everyone was so addicted to it for a while! And of course I had my usual Skype Date with Taylor, that’s always my favorite part of the weekend.
