Despite the deceiving title, this post is in no way workout or Nike related. In fact, I haven’t gotten my sweat on much lately. I strained my hip carrying furniture up the stairs on Tuesday night, which allowed me to do a little upper-body lifting and light yoga but not much else.
After not being able to run again until Saturday (a short test run), I can tell you this – if you’re considering carrying heavy furniture upstairs by yourself… just don’t do it. Now that the negatives are out of the way, let’s get to what you should do instead.
If you’re not working out in the morning and have time to cook a hot breakfast, just do it. (Bonus points for freshly brewed coffee.)
If you’re picking up your mom from the airport kind of late, and you want to get a couple beers despite the time, just do it. (We definitely stayed up until 3 a.m. chatting, but it was worth it.)
If you have time to give one of your best friends a massage, just do it. (On Saturday, my house guests and I got massages of our own during our day at the spa. That’s girl time at its best!)
If you see a Groupon or other deal for a BYOB painting class, just do it. We had a blast at Wine & Design!
If one of your house guests feels sickly Sunday morning, and you want to make her breakfast in bed, just do it. These are Katie’s apple pancakes, and they were a-friggin-mazing.
If you want to turn on beast mode after feeling slack about your recent workouts, just do it. Today I’m hitting the gym with a whole new routine, so check back throughout the week if you want more info on that.
- Do you love massages as much as I do?
- Did you have a fun weekend too?
