Happy Thursday! I feel like this week just flew by, anyone else? Have a great day 🙂
Wednesday morning started off like any other. I woke up to a text from my sister Megan saying she met someone who lives behind Alex’s parents house. She goes to school in South Carolina and Alex’s hometown is pretty small so we were both shocked by this! For breakfast, I made another smoothie and scrambled egg. Instead of a frozen banana I used one that’s been on the counter ripening. It was nice because the smoothie blended quicker but wasn’t very thick so I think I’ll add ice next time to (hopefully) thicken it up.
One of my goals for the past few weeks has been to include bodyweight strength training exercises. I always write my runs down in my planner and never don’t do them so I wrote down the strength training workouts I want to do. Since I do not belong to a gym or own any dumbbells, I have to rely solely on my body to gain strength. I decided to do Julie’s 21-15-9 workout. She put together 6 different exercises that work your whole body and decreases the amount of reps to do each time. I love workouts like this since I mentally feel like if I can get through the highest number of reps then it gets easier. My arms were getting sore about 15 minutes after I finished this workout.
When I finished, I decided to read a bit before dinner. I was pretty hungry and snacked on a peach while doing so. Well not during since I can’t seem to eat a peach without getting juice all over my face but you get what I mean 😉
Alex and I were talking about what we wanted to do last night. We decided to go see “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” 30 minutes before the movie began. Luckily the theater is close to our apartment and wasn’t crowded so we made it just in time. If you like action, comedy, love stories then go see this movie! I often find that movie trailers spoiler all of the funny portions of movies but not this one. I was laughing for so much. If you liked “Deadpool” then I think you would like Ryan Reynold’s character in this movie as well. Plus who doesn’t like Samuel L. Jackson? Alex and I have known each other a little over 11 months and this is the first time we’ve actually seen a movie in theaters which is crazy!
The good thing about seeing a movie at 6:30 pm (and having popcorn for dinner) is that we still had some time to relax at home before bed. I spent the hour or so before getting into bed foam rolling and getting ready for work.
Question of the day: What’s your favorite bodyweight exercise or workout? I’m in need of some ideas to incorporate into my routine!
