5 Monday Updates!
Happy Monday! Let’s jump right into today’s updates, shall we? :).
1. Figuring Out My Calves. On the weekends my calves barely bother me. After I do my stretches I could easily forget that I even have calves. However, on week nights they are super tight every single night.
I’m glad I’ve discovered this pattern but I’m not 100% sure what to do about it.
I get up and walk around a lot during work because I drink water all the time and go to the bathroom about 10X an hour. I wear dresses to work pretty often so I can’t really wear compression socks.
I’m thinking about bringing a little footstool to see if elevating my legs help. We’ll see if that works!
2. Treadmill Running. This weekend there was a music festival down at the beach on Saturday and Sunday so I decided to stick to the gym to avoid the crowds/parking situation.
Saturday night I didn’t get down to the gym until after 8pm, but I got in four miles on the treadmill and then a great full body lifting session.
^ Can you see little flecks of white paint all over me? Oy.
Sunday I got in nine miles on the treadmill. It was my longest treadmill run since the summer… and I hated it. I really go in phases with the treadmill. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I can’t stand it.
3. Bathroom Update. We’re moving in this coming Saturday and I cannot wait. On Saturday we finished up the master bedroom and bathroom which feels great.
Here’s what the master bathroom looked like BEFORE:
And here’s a (crappy) picture of what it looks like now.
Obviously there are cabinet doors… I just forgot to take a nice AFTER picture when we were at the house on Saturday. I’ll definitely take a better pic soon :).
I think the dark wood and white sink basins really give the bathroom a much more modern vibe, even if this bad in-progress photo may give the impression that this was a downgrade. (I promise it’s not!!) I just need to find some cute bathroom decorations to spruce up the area.
4. Kitchen Update. Two weekends ago we had our new fridge delivered but we weren’t able to set it up until last weekend because there was an adapter part we needed to buy first. Well it’s up and running now and Adam and I are in LOVE!
We’ve always dreamed about having a giant fridge but never could because we’ve always been renters, plus apartment kitchens are usually pretty small.
When we bought the house one of the first things we talked about buying was the biggest fridge we could afford! haha
When the Home Depot guys delivered this fridge I exclaimed “OMG it’s beautiful!” and they laughed, but honestly isn’t it beautiful?
5. Cecil Update.
This little boy continues to be perfect. ?
Every one keeps asking if we’ve brought him to the house yet or not. We have not. This Saturday when we move in will be the first time he sees the house that we bought him! 😉
The house will have several special touches designed just for him.
For instance, we’re putting a bird feeder in a tree he can see from inside the bedroom windows so that he always has little birdies to watch. His favorite cat perch will sit right in front of the windows so that he can watch them all day.
I think he’s going to really like his new house! 🙂
How was your weekend?
Do you ever do late workouts on the weekend or do you prefer to get them out of the way early?
