Last night as I was going to bed, I said a little prayer. “If I don’t get called in tonight, I promise I will workout in the morning.”
And lucky me- I didn’t get a single call all night, so that meant I had to hop on the treadmill as soon as I woke up. Win-win!
Making last minute workout deals with the universe is definitely a benefit of having a treadmill in your room 🙂
Ever since OKAPs ended, it became painfully obvious how out of shape I am, and how little I have worked out this year of residency. The painfully obvious part is quite literal because I am now so stinking sore! Sometimes we fall behind on our workout routines and so we just have to get right back to it as soon as we can, and that’s what I’m doing.
This weekend was productive, relaxing, and fun- everything you want in a weekend! Sadly, Kyle was out of town, but it did make for a fun weekend all to myself.
Friday night, I was too lazy to do anything after work, so I treated myself to some frozen yogurt, took a bubble bath, and went to bed as early as possible. Isn’t that what everyone does when their husband is away?
Saturday I spent some quality time on my treadmill and made a shopping trip to Home Depot to pick up seeds for our vegetable garden this summer (more on that coming soon.)
Saturday night, 2 of my co-residents came over to my house for an impromptu dinner. We had so much fun chatting away from a work setting.
Sunday, my chief resident and her husband invited me to brunch at a local restaurant called Zzest.
Saranya ordered ginger french toast which came out as a crispy and delicate french toast with just a subtle warm ginger flavor, topped with fresh cream and berries- divine!!
I got eggs benedict, which looks like it’s swimming in sauce in this picture, but really it was incredible- so flavorful and satisfying! What a treat!
I spent the rest of Sunday doing some meal-prep for the week. I made this healthy pad-thai recipe from the cook book Eating in the Middle (recipe shared on Iowa Girl Eats) and I think it’s going to make for some delicious lunches this week!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
