I hope you are having a lovely afternoon.
My afternoon was as lovely as it can be when you have an annual women’s exam on the agenda. I like my doctor a lot but I am still waiting for the day when I feel even 10 percent more comfortable once I slip into that paper gown. It’s never a fun experience, but everything seemed to check out okay and I was on my way a little more than an hour later. (There was a serious wait time before I was brought back to an exam room and I entertained myself by catching up on some emails on my phone.)
Work + Workout
Work today went well! My TRX class was the highlight of the day for me since I put some time into planning a new shakeup workout for the class.
As for my own workout (I don’t do the TRX workout with the class which I explain further in this post), I kept things short and sweet since I wanted to have time to shower before my appointment. After 10 minutes on the elliptical, I rounded out my workout with a 15-minute Nike Training Club (NTC) workout and some additional leg exercises in the weight room.
Today’s NTC workout was the Beach Legs workout, which is quickly becoming a go-to workout for me on days when I want to work my legs but I’m not in the mood to pound out tons of heavy squats, deadlifts or lunges. It’s awesome and if you’re looking for a quality leg workout that doesn’t require weights and keeps things moving, I highly recommend it!
Before I headed out to my doctor’s appointment, I grabbed lunch in the break room. (<—I accidentally typed “weight room” at first. Now that would be a treat.)
My salad was enjoyed out of a Tupperware container, but since I made the same salad for dinner last night, I’ll share last night’s photo with you instead since it looks slightly more appealing.
Feta + Watermelon + Arugula + Olive Oil + Salt + Pepper
I’m pretty sure that is my all-time favorite salad. It’s so simple but so, so good. A summertime staple for sure!
Since I am done with work for the day, I am planning to run a few errands before heading home. I’m hoping to swing by Ulta to pick up a heat protectant for my hair. When I had my hair done for my sister’s wedding, the woman who did my hair seriously stressed the importance of a heat protectant, especially since my hair is so thin. I should’ve asked her for brand recommendations because I have no idea what I should buy, so if any of you have any recommendations for heat protectants you use and love, please let me know.
See ya later!
