Gym Days and a Sock Giveaway

Hey friends, Happy Thursday to you all!

I was super busy at work all day yesterday, holy patient load!ย So Iย was a pretty happy lady to leave at 430 ๐Ÿ™‚

Lately, Iย  haven’t been posting many gym selfies like I used to. The reason? It’s really hard to take a selfie in my new gym. No, I don’t care if people witness it—please, I proudly take a selfie. But there are always tons of people around photobombing it, and then the locker room is even worse. The mirrors are in front of the changing area, instead of behind it. So I’d rather not take a picture of me with someone changing in the background. My gym needs to re-think this for the people who need to selfie ๐Ÿ˜‰


I hope you know I am being super sarcastic.

Anyway, my workouts have been pretty tough lately. On work days since the newย gym is closer to the hospital, I’m able to squeeze in an additional 20 minutes. Hey I’m just pre-burning off those biscuits I plan on eating Thanksgiving day ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are my favorite part of the meal.

Homemade Biscuits

But by the third day or so, my body feels that 20 minutes a little more. I’m exhausted. The past 2 nights I flopped on the bed and didn’t move for a half hour- the time that Phoebe goes stir crazy and says “please get up, you haven’t seen me all day!”.

On Tuesday I hit biceps and wore these colorful socks I posted yesterday.


Comfy and adorable! My friends over at Sock Guy sent them to me and they would like to give away a pair to a lucky reader.
