Good morning and happy Friday! Hope you all have fun weekend plans ahead of you!
I’m looking forward to this weekend since Ankur is done with the bootcamp he’s been TA’ing for and we get to attend a friend’s wedding in Kentucky! This upcoming year is supposed to be pretty challenging for the medical students so I’m soaking up every minute I get with him right now because who knows how long it’s going to last?!
Getting to spend SO much time with Ankur is definitely the highlight of my week, but I wanted to share a few other things that I’ve been loving lately! As always, feel free to share what’s making you smile in the comments below! I love reading them! 🙂
I’ve been really sluggish and sleepy this week and my morning workouts have taken a backseat. BUT it’s really hard to avoid a workout all day when you have everything you need at home with you. It’s pretty crazy how quickly I can work up a sweat with the BBG workouts. And when they’re divided up into 7-minute increments, it seems totally do-able. I love doing these three times a week – knowing that I’m targeting all the different muscle groups and getting a combination of strength training and HIIT. I also love having a print-out of the workouts so I don’t have to switch between the workout and the timer on my phone.
Since I’ve started the BBG workouts, I’ve had to stop using my old headphones because the wire was always getting in the way. (Seriously – imagine trying to do 10 burpees while attempting to keep your earbuds in. A little tricky). These bluetooth headphones have been the best $35 investment. I can leave my phone on a bench nearby and bounce around the gym completing all the circuits. No annoying wire getting in my way.
One Hour of Chopping
While we were in Knoxville on Saturday, we stopped by Trader Joes to pick up some fresh produce. I set aside an hour on Sunday to wash, chop, and store for the week and it’s been so helpful. I eat so much more fruit when it’s already washed and put in individual containers to grab and go. I’ve been snacking on carrots and cherries all week long!
Liquor Store Humor
Bob’s Liquor Store in Knoxville is already a favorite place of ours – simply because they provide us what we can’t get in our dry county. But it won even more points after we saw this sign posted in the window. Oh Bob’s. We love you.
My Hydroflask Waterbottle
Gina sent me this incredible, insulated water bottle for my birthday and I’ve been toting it everywhere I go. It keeps my water cold for up to 24 hours. Seriously. I filled it with ice before I left for work in the morning around 7:30AM and when I got home at 5PM, the ice cubes were still in there! It’s M-A-G-I-C.
Questions of the Day:
- Do you listen to music while you workout?
