Happy Friday! I hope you all had a fabulous week! This week was pretty good except Tuesday which happened to be the longest most Monday-est (yes I made that word up) Tuesday I’ve ever experienced. A few people in my office said the same thing. Did anyone else feel that way? This weekend I’m getting a haircut for the first time in an embarrassingly long time. Let’s not judge people! Plus Alex and I have a dinner date so I’m pumped! Have a great day 🙂
Let’s round up the few things I’ve been obsessing over before the weekend kicks off though.
Since I don’t own any workout equipment due to lack of storage space, I have been relying on workout videos that don’t require any equipment. With just my bodyweight, I have gotten some tough workouts in. I do the videos after my runs and vary what part of my body I’m working on.. Blogilates has been my favorite this week! Cassey has a ton of videos at varying lengths. It’s awesome because I can either do a long one or play a few shorter ones right after one another. I use Chromecast to stream from my phone which is super helpful so I don’t have to stare at my phone screen. The one I linked above is a short video to Shape of You by Ed Sheeran that’s all squats…my legs were actually shaking midway through!
Why yes it is the middle of February and I just typed out that I’ve been loving shorts weather. I know the warm weather now just means we’ll get another snowstorm but I’m going to savor it anyways. I was able to wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt for my tempo run yesterday. It felt hot and for a bit I contemplated pausing to just run in a sports bra for a while but that seemed a little much. It was amazing! My legs got to breath and get some sun. Now I’m so excited for spring and summer running.
Valentine’s Gifts from Our Parents
When I checked the mail last night, I saw a card from my parents for Valentine’s Day which was super cute. They even included a Starbucks gift card. Woohoo!! Who doesn’t love free coffee? I love stopping for coffee and realizing I don’t have to spend my money since a gift card is in my wallet. Alex’s mom also dropped off a little gift for the two of us – chocolate covered strawberries and some fancy soap that is too pretty to use. It was so sweet of both our families to think of us and make us feel extra love yesterday.
I love the Olympics. Earlier this week, I told Alex that I am an expert for whatever sport we are watching for the next two weeks. Kidding but seriously I feel like I learn so much every year about the sports and then carry that knowledge over to the next games. All of the athletes are crazy talented! For every event I see, I am just amazed at how effortless everything looks. This week has been a good one for Team USA between Shaun White and Chloe Kim on the half pipe for snowboarding and Mikaela Shiffrin winning gold for giant slalom (plus more!) it’s been an entertaining week for sure.
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessing with this week?
