Before: Freezing my butt off.
Ok guys. Sorry for the hiatus. I had every intention of keeping up with things even through exam weeks, but I just had to put everything on hold and focus on the essentials… and no, working out didn’t even make the cut. I lost weight… here’s my latest stats, but I’m kind of worried it’s more from muscle atrophy then anything else.
Hip: 91 (-1.0)
Quad: 52.5 (+2.0)
Calf: 32 (-1.0)
Bicep: 27 (+0.5)
Total Measurement Change since last week: +2.5 cm (Ugh at least my biceps and quads got bigger)
Weight: 139.4lbs (-2.4 from last time)
But who cares!? The first semester of nursing school is over (with good grades TAH BOOT!)! And during all the craziness of those last 2 weeks of the semester, I got a new job! I will be working as a unit secretary (mostly night shift) in the ER at RCH. I couldn’t be happier 🙂
Besides studying and drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee, I did make time for 2 races (Color Me Rad, and Rugged Maniac) AND a day at Kings Dominion – I got season passes for my man’s birthday.
After: Can’t wait to shower!
Sometimes you just gotta know when to say NO. Today is the first day I can truly say I feel like a burnt out nursing student. I woke up late (4:30 AM) and went to teach my TRX class. Normally I workout more afterwards, but I just needed a day of R&R. I’ve been going hard so I went to my parents house to work on school work, then after a nice home-cooked meal I’m gonna go home and have a long shower. Since I’m feel burnt out and my shoulder is acting up today (shoulder and abs split) I’m just going to focus on learning those tracks from the new Body Pump release.
Moral of the story. Just listen to your body. Don’t let one off day be your excuse to be a bum, but know when to tone it back a bit. This is a marathon not a sprint, and we want to develop a gorgeous well oiled machine, not a used and abused piece of equipment.
But on the plus side… I just got my #SweatPink swag! I can’t wait to don this baby for Rugged Maniac on May 4th… and did you guys hear????
In RVA on August 24th! I can’t wait! This and a giant tomato fight!
