HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!
This weekend was an interesting one starting with our schools annual “Lock-In”. It’s an all night event which they open the school and 9th graders participate in activities, including scavenger hunts, bounce castles, capture the flag and frisbee at 2am and even a hypnotist show! It’s kind of AMAZING! I wish we had this when I was in high school. It’s an incredible bonding experience that keeps the kids active and makes for a ton of laughs!
I did do some reading this weekend on recovery and nutrition. It’s amazing how crucial it is for your body to receive whole, nutritious foods in order to repair. I’ll be upping my fish oil intake, adding green tea extract and more calcium to my usual vitamins (helps with inflammation and joint mobility). In order to avoid any weight gain my goal is to eat as if I’m on a rest day. For those of you who like numbers, I’ll try to keep it around 1200- 1300 calories of mostly clean foods. Boyfriend has agreed to keep me happy by having breakfast for dinner this week. HOORAY!! PICTURES TO COME!
The rest of the weekend was for resting my knee. As promised, I’m trying my best to stay positive. Even if it is quite boring to sit and rest. I started losing my mind just a tad, icing my knee and sitting on the couch… trying on clothes, accessories, looking for any excuse to get up and move. I MISS YOU GYM!
Make it a STRONG week!
