Well. We survived the weekend. It was not one of my favorites. I had plans with a friend and her kids yesterday afternoon, but they had to cancel due to hand / foot / mouth (and I am quite glad they kept that particular bug out of the house).
I really shouldn’t complain; I got to work out both days, G napped well on both days (and I fell asleep for a short stint during both of those naps!), and the big kids were generally well-behaved until they sort of broke down last night a little bit.
Objectively things were fine. It was just kind of lonely. Also, I seem to have injured my left shoulder and it hurts when I do pretty much anything, so that’s a downer. It feels like some sort of tendon irritation or nerve entrapment or something – and I am not sure if it is Beachbody related or more about carrying G (I almost always bear most of her weight on that side when carrying her).
WELL. It’s a new week! And it promises to be an action-packed one. I’m gong to a conference, speaking on a panel, have a bunch of quarterly resident check-in meetings, and today is my only clinical day. (I had a nightmare that I was holding clinic in some bizarre building and managed to get THREE HOURS behind and people started leaving. Hmm, anxiety much?).
Per my new Monday tradition – here are last week’s workouts and this week’s dinner plans!
M – Rest
T – AM run, 9:51/mi, 3.55 miles
W – BB 21DF Dirty 30 (8 and 12 lb weight / 10 lb triceps as per usual)
R – In Strava I wrote “Not really in the mood. But done.” I do not really like running in the afternoon, but knew I needed the mood boost. I ran 3 miles and walked part of the 4th. 10:46/mi, 4 mi. It was hot.
F – BB 21DF Pilates
S – Weekend “long” run, slightly cooler with some light rain, 10:13/mi, 5 miles. This felt really nice because the weather feels like it is turning around a bit here (which is actually nice & early for that to be happening!)
S – BB 21DF Extreme Plyo. Yes! I tried the extreme. It was @$*@# tough And then my shoulder pain worsened, but honestly I’m not sure I can blame this workout because there isn’t really all that much upper body work in it at all! My legs/butt are so sore today.
This week’s dinner plan:
Another not-terribly-ambitious one 🙂
M – chicken sausages (with some kind of carb, pita bread or whole wheat buns), green beans
T – Greek salad with chicken (requested by Annabel), hummus, pita
(I feel like unfortunately the kids seem to be getting pickier by the week; Annabel told me yesterday that the ONLY meals she likes are Chicken Kitchen, sushi, and salad. Uh, great.)
W – leftovers
R – Fartlek chili from RFES (someone posted the recipe here – we usually use ground turkey instead of beef)
F – leftover chili
S – out
S – Erev Rosh Hashanah dinner in MIA (like Rosh Hashanah Eve)
