A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday!! Holy heck what a crazy week it was. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, then you missed that I got engaged last week! HOLY CRAP!!!! I still feels so surreal. I won’t get into too many details now since I plan on doing a separate post on it. But let’s just say last week was full of not so much working out and lots of celebrating. It’s all about balance though right?
The week started off with my friend’s wedding and then traveling back home on Monday. Then on Thursday we got engaged and we did tons of celebrating with consisted of lots of food and alcohol over the next few days. So last week was made up of a little more rest days than planned, but I am totally okay with that.
I’m sure I have said this before, but being healthy isn’t just about eating right and working out. Those are obviously two huge factors, but health and wellness encompass so much more. Being happy, getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, less stress – it’s about being a good place with a bunch of things.
And I mean you only get engaged once!! You sure as hell know we are going to be celebrating with champagne that night, along with going to the bar. And then going out to dinner and drinks with our friends, eating birthday cake ice cream sandwiches, going out for tex mex…just to name a few. Life is about enjoying yourself and celebrating those special moments – don’t pass them up because you might miss the gym the next day, it “doesn’t fit in your macros”, or you said you weren’t going to drink over the weekend (my intention but definitely strayed far from that).
I also have a competition coming up this weekend so I think the extra rest is definitely helpful! Stay tuned for a recap on the engagement later this week or next!
