Are you exhausted?

Me too apparently!  Last night I went into CVS after the gym.  I picked up a few things, batteries, a birthday card, extra tights…  Well, when I got in my car, the package of tights fell onto my center console.  I had them tucked in my arm, and didn’t pay for them, I paid for everything out and walked right out.  I had to run back into the store,  in my true, definitely not dramatic fashion. **place exaggerated wink emoji here ** Needless to say, first week at a new job is exhausting.  If you can’t get enough sleep, try to get better sleep.  Here are a few links to get you started:

Skip day

After skiing two days over the weekend, followed by a HIIT and step class after work, it hurts to sit stand and walk. So today I took an off day from the gym.  I still got some steps in at Target while I picked up cleaning supplies.  I also took time when I got home to do a long stretch, including a few yoga poses.  If you take a day off, try to do a long stretch or take a walk!

While I was at work today, I had pork loin cooking low and slow in the crock pot.  And I served it with rolls and coleslaw.   Yummy!

Fitness Friday

Brewed while making breakfast because I’m running a little late this morning 

Here is a super fast, full body workout that requires no equipment and very little space.  I do this at the gym and run a few warm up laps, stretch, run a few laps at 1/2 way, and then cool down laps and stretch, and it takes about a 1/2 hour.  If you just do what’s below it could be lone in under 20 minutes, and everyone has 20 minutes!  Oh! And Happy Friday!
