You’d think that while Brooke is away I would want to sleep in but nope… I love the 6 a.m. pump classes too much to miss out. After pump I did the stair climber for 20 minutes because for some strange reason I thought that would be a good idea after a million squats and lunges at pump.
While the girls ran I jumped on their treadmills in the middle to talk to them.
And all of that greenage goes into my one smoothie.
My whole day just feels better when I start with one of these beauties for breakfast. It helps to satisfy my sweets cravings (because of the fruit) and it gives me a ton of energy so I don’t even think about needing caffeine later on. The craziest things happen when you actually put good food into your body;)
Saw Dr. Bennett (people keep asking for his number so I will just include it in each post that I talk about going in to see him —> 801-513-1078) and we worked on the muscle behind my knees today, the popliteus.
We did performance muscle reactivation (working on where the muscle connects to the bone rather than just the muscle body) to continue to make my muscles work properly. This will make it so that I am not longer overcompensating with the wrong muscles/joints when I run and then getting injured every other day (okay, a little dramatic but I have had a ton of injuries over the years).
This week’s exercise—> One legged squat thrusters. My form isn’t great in the video because this was my first time trying it. Give me a few weeks and I am sure my knee won’t pop-in as I am trying to come up like it does in the video. I also need to squat a little more rather than hinging so much at the hip in order to touch my toes:)
Do 10 of the one-legged squats on each leg and repeat 3 times!
My mom and salad = a good afternoon. I had to take some things back to Ikea and then go to a store in SLC to look for bedding and so my mom joined me.
While we were up north we had to restock me and Brooke’s addiction—> almond butter (it is turning into an expensive addiction but neither of us are at a point where we want to stop so we won’t). They had these chips for samples and I fell in love. So good.
Tell me a random fact about yourself (I am really looking forward to reading these ones:)!!!
