I will let the pictures speak for themselves:
And then along came snOMG 2009
Sigh I suddenly feel old.
Finals week is not a week of model eating. There may have been take out orders for pizza, wings, subs and yeah…….
Thankfully my mom packed a delish and veggie filled lunch
I am officially done for the semester as of the 22nd and I don’t start up again till the 27th of January.
1 WHOLE month of freedom!
What will I ever do with all this time?
In exactly 1 year I will be applying to graduate school for a masters in Public Health- so I am going to start studying for the GRE which I will most likely take in the summer
I will still be teaching ab crunch at the UMBC gym twice a week- I still need to order new music. Any fitness instructors out there with good music sites? I use John Sines – they are great except I like to custom make my CD’s with the songs I like. But I am not too sure where I would get that done.
So in good news I feel 89% better from my lower spine injury. I can defiantly feel my injury spot- I don’t think it will ever be 100% better but this is sooo much better.
So what is my game plan?
Well this is what Mr. Elliptical Machine had to say:
I stuck with the Gluteal Program:
Minutes 1-7 I was at crossramp 4 and resistance 1
7-12 I moved the resistance to level 2
12-15 I cranked it up to level 3
I stopped to stretch out my hamstrings and quads.
I hopped back on for another 15 minutes repeating the format.
I also wanted to work on some abs and I grabbed my favorite buddy and crunched away for a set of 10!
I wrapped up my light workout with a 30 sec plank and some weights (5lbs) I really did not want to over do it after being out of the gym for so long.
So far everything feels good I am going to pretty much add gradually as I go along.
It sounds like a great plan to me.
I am just happy to be out sweating. Speaking of which I am taking my first Bikram yoga class on the 7th I plan on hydrating well and figuring out what to wear in the time being. The studio near my house has a 10 consecutive day trial pass for $25 I plan on trying it out with some of my friends.
I have never done any sort of yoga before and I plan on letting the instructor know about my injury- so I won’t do anything to hurt it.
I am also working on applying to several internships and on that I am really excited for takes place in Switzerland!
The application along with a 500 word essay about why I plan on having a future in the health and aging field is due on the 15th. I am super nervous about applying but it will be an exciting opportunity. Even if I don’t get in I am still happy to apply- I am not the type of person that does new things like traveling ect. I am happy staying at home. But I don’t want to miss out on an amazing opportunity.
*WHEW* Stay tuned for part 2 of what I have been up too!
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday 🙂
