broken wing

I’m hoping I’m not making the wrong impression with this fly situation. It’s not like I have fleas or that my room is swarmed with bugs. I’m a clean person. There isn’t food lying around or mass amounts of trash. There was (is) one fly zooming around, haunting me. Just so we’re clear.

Probably looks like this:

On another note, I’m starting to age. Well, yes, as this is a fact of life, but I’m starting to feel it. I put myself through grueling workouts six days a week and yet, I bust my shoulder PICKING UP MY BAG IN MY CAR. I must have twisted the wrong way and twinged the muscle in my wing because it was bothering me a little when it first happened and a lot later that afternoon. I found a makeshift foam roller to apply pressure to it, as well as someone willing to massage the area (don’t judge me) and it seemed to help a lot. I can still feel it right now, but it’s not anything damaging.

I know that it’s one of those cases where I pay close attention to every movement during a workout and not so much when I’m living every day life, but still. It’s almost offensive.

Feels like this:

But I just enjoy being dramatic from time to time.

Side note: I don’t know what’s up with the animations, except I get more views when there’s pictures and I don’t have actual pictures, so. I got them from Google. I did not make them, nor am I taking credit for them. But I am accepting your laughs.

Because I was nursing my sore wing, when my friend suggested Happy Hour after work, I decided a rest day from the gym was in order. Felt like a Friday night, still just a Thursday. Regardless, it was a fun night chatting away with a friend, sipping a margarita, chomping on chips and queso, and eating a salad I didn’t have to prepare.

It’s Friday now, which means the weekend is near! Lots of adventuring, writing, and relaxing is in store for this girl.

What are your weekend plans?

Cheesy Business

We’ve made it to Thursday! The weekend is upon us, but hopefully, you’re still rocking this week. I had myself a pretty good Wednesday, what with nailing down a job, but the other parts of the day were pretty sweet too.

Especially this syrupy waffle from the morning. Paired with some fruit, it was perfection.

For lunch, I dug into more of my quinoa dish, chock full of black beans, corn, broccoli, orange pepper, feta, and soyaki.

I made myself a fancy dinner to celebrate last night. Not nearly as good as my mom’s, but I don’t make a terrible chicken parmesan. Vegetable medley and pasta on the side. One might say with too much cheese. But one would be wrong.

Exercise was a run, walk combination totaling 4.5 miles! I ran for a mile at a medium-fast pace, walked the difference between my mileage and 15 minutes, ran another mile at a faster pace, walked, then did it a third time. I ended up continuing on to complete more than 4 miles with running, and finishing off with a walk. A quick yoga session ended my workout and left me dripping in sweat, the way I love it!

Lots of writing occurred in the hours after and we finally installed wi-fi! Things are continuing to fall into place and though I still suspect challenges ahead, I’m keeping a positive mindset.

Crush your Thursday!
