Happy 4th everyone! I am heading back to Texas in the morning but I had a wonderful time at my friend's wedding and catching up with all of my friends from high school. Seriously #blessed for real
Eating was fine again. I need to get back into eating more veggies as I have definitely fallen off the 2 veggies per meal rule I had earlier in the year. In Texas, I made the best choices I could but had 3 meals of BBQ and 2 meals of Tex Mex and it was all WORTH IT!! But I can't wait to get home and get back on the healthy eating train.
I slept pretty well all week! My knee has gotten much better so that made sleep so much easier. In Texas, I slept as much as I could. The A/C felt great compared to the heat index between 105-110! crazy!! My goal for this week is to sleep as much as I can. Adjusting to having class on Tuesday after working all day will be a bit rough but I'll manage! I am trying to make sure to put away time for completing final class assignments and dissertation time too.
Good news: my knee is okay! I went to the orthopedic doctor and got x-rays and I just have a swollen bursae sac which should take 2-3 weeks to completely heal. The doctor said I can do whatever I want and I tried to run on Friday and got in a few 30 second segments at a 10:33 pace. I am trying to ease back into it so we will see how this week goes.
Last week: I was able to go walking on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Wednesday I did a short weight workout. Saturday I walked around the mall with my aunt for an hour, which was great before being at the wedding all afternoon.
My goal for this week is to try and run a bit (short 30 sec segments) to see how my knee does. I would love to get some running on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. I also want to incorporate some weights on Wednesday and Friday but I will of course listen to my body.
One class down and one more to go! My cohort decided to switch classes so now I have a nice week off in between the classes which will be much appreciated! I start my final class of graduate school on Tuesday! eek!
The wedding I went to this weekend was beyond incredible-just the best! Don't we look so cute?
How was your week? Any fun 4th of July weekend plans?
