Home For The Weekend

Hello from Traverse City!

I’m back home for the weekend, but unfortunately not for anything too exciting. I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday, but it’s still nice to be home for a couple of days. Since I’ve got a ten hour shift tomorrow, I’m probably not too far from bed right now; but in the meantime I’ve been enjoying my mom’s home cooked meals

Ah, the life of a college student.


Today was a pretty typical day other than the road trip back home. Started out with a hearty breakfast:

And as the day went on I did a little of this:


Plus some research on hormone replacement therapy. Pretty exciting stuff Winking smile. I actually started researching it because a guest came to the counter and asked for my opinion about herbal estrogen products. She was pretty young, so I asked what she was using them for and she told me about how she has premature ovarian failure. Her doctor prescribed her some prescription hormones, but she was concerned about long term side effects and wanted to look into more “natural” options first. I’m really not all that familiar with the herbal options, or hormone replacement therapy in general, so it was a good opportunity to read up on it.


I also squeezed in a quick at home workout this morning before frantically packing up my things for the weekend. I did a 20 minute Turbo Jam workout

And finished up with this short cardio/legs circuit:

Exercise

Reps

Jumping jacks

25

Sumo squats

20

Mountain climbers

20

Jumping jacks

25

Lunges

20

Wall sit

60 seconds

I repeated the circuit twice (so two times total) and it took me about ten minutes. I actually really liked this little circuit and I wish I would have ran through it a third time!


Time to relax with the fam for a little while before calling it an early night. Have a great weekend everyone!
