Not a whole lot new these last few days! I am trying something new in my workout routine (I use routine loosely, since I don’t have any specific routine at all). On days that I can’t go to CrossFit, I’m convincing myself to spend 20 minutes doing SOME sort of activity! Thursday I went for a short run with push ups, squats, and lunges. Yesterday I ran a mile on the treadmill and did a little bit of ab work in the morning. Today I woke up and ran about a mile and did some abs and some push ups after. I was sweating by the end of it. I made it 25 minutes today and that was it.
I tend not to think of a workout as something that only lasts 25 minutes unless I’m at CrossFit (or just running- 25 minutes is still a longer run for me). But it’s pretty easy to fit in 25 minutes of activity in my day so I just need to DO IT. Especially with such a busy schedule coming up, CrossFit won’t be happening nearly as much, which is fine. But I tend to get lazy and not do anything at all for a month at a time when that happens (although, working as an ER nurse is a physically active job). It was nice to get outside this morning before work too! I actually am really wanting to do a Body Pump class when I’m home, but I cancelled my gym membership at home since there isn’t an LA Fitness anywhere near me here. I think I can pay a daily fee and go, so I may do that.
Anyway, two work days down, three to go (till I see Jon). Last night I had THREE patients all night. THREE. The last time that happened to me was Christmas two years ago! I was loving every second of it. I’m sure either today or tomorrow will make up for it (and Friday was horrendous), but at least 1/5 of my shifts was a super calm day.
I have to go clean up my room and get ready for work! Have a good day, everybody!
