To the Top Times 6
Hello there, HAPPY Thursday!
I’m definitely happy it’s time for the weekend for me, but I have to say work this week was good! I spent all my days this week doing stuff in the OR. Time goes by much faster and I’m a happy PA.
A couple of days ago one of the PAs told me she once said to someone “I live for weekends” and in reply a lady said to her “I enjoy weekends too, but I’m not wishing my life away”. This stuck with me! Yes, I obviously love days off, but I should enjoy every day, enjoy my youth, and be grateful I have a job 🙂
However, I really am looking forward to 3 days off in a row. I plan on working on my cookbook a little bit and doing a little research. Plus my apartment floors are due for a good old fashioned scrubbing! I don’t mind cleaning actually because I always get a good workout 😉
After work I got dressed for the gym, but I actually went home. I was worried about my girl and didn’t want to leave her more than I needed to. After I made sure she was okay, I ran the stairs again. I’m telling you it’s the best workout there is! I decided to do 6 times this go around, but since it was cold (even though I was indoors), my lungs were hurting. I alternated between running up and down the 15 floors and then skipping 2-3 steps and jogging down. I did 3 sets of each kind. Boy was I tired. And this time I wore my heart rate monitor!
Each set took me about 5 minutes to complete, although I ran up them faster than I went down. Next time I am going to have to time myself to see how long it takes me to get to the top!
After some cardio I went to my apartment gym and did some minor tricep work and abs. Just enough to feel the burn.
I also hopped on a machine for 15 minutes of the elliptical. It felt weird getting on one again! And ya know some classic gym shoulder selfies 😉
Back upstairs I chugged some water, Fiji waters are seriously the best and so smooth and taste like liquid velvet (if that makes sense).
I also was happy to see what I burned this workout. Not bad for being at home.
For dinner I had a salad and some chicken! I was telling a friend about my carrot fries yesterday and it made me crave that seasoning. So I mixed some up and plopped it on some chicken breast! So good. No dipping sauces needed.
Before I knew it I was dozing in my chair at 9pm. What happen to the days when I would stay up till 1 am doing stuff? Geez. LONG GONE!
Have a great Thursday, and don’t forget to enter to win a tank!
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
