Time to R.E.L.A.X! This crazy week has finally come to an end.
The past 3 days have been a whirlwind and exhausting. If I am this tired I can’t imagine how my husband is doing!
The past few days have included:
1. 2 pre-residency dinners
2. 2 interviews
3. 2 hospital tours
4. 400 miles
5. One flat tire
6. Both of cell phone chargers dying
7. Spending 2+ hours sitting in traffic
8. Wes getting lost on his run which resulted in him running 15 miles instead of 11, a huge amount of panic and worry for me, and 20 minutes to shower get dressed and get him to is interview.
Now do you see why I am exhausted?
There have been a ton of ups and downs over the past couple days. I am happy to report that we made it through and we are finally able to rest for a few days.
We spent last night and tonight with my family and then Sunday we head to spend a day with Wes’ family.
Backing up to yesterday, I got up and headed down to the hotel gym as Wes was heading to his interview.
I really wanted to get something in, even though I knew I had to take it easy after a lot of walking the night before.
I started off with 30 minutes of walking at 3.5 mph at a 1% incline. I am easing back into walking slowly and keeping the speed and incline lower than I did before when I got myself in trouble.
I also did some weights: squats, tricep extension, bicep curl, tricep dips, and sit ups.
Overall the workout only lasted about 45 minutes, but I was happy to get something in before the weekend starts.
The hotel we stayed at had a pretty awesome breakfast that included just about everything I could ask for.
I opted for oatmeal with dried fruit, oranges, grapes, grapefruit, and OF COURSE coffee!
I am pretty proud of myself for sticking to healthy food options during our travels.
Last night we had a residency dinner and we went to a super fancy restaurant in downtown Charlotte, NC. The foods all seemed way too much for me and I was trying so hard to stay healthy.
I got one of their small salads but requested that they put some grilled salmon on top, which they were more than happy to do.
I wish I could have gotten a picture, but I didn’t want too many questions for snapping pictures 🙂
Just goes to show you – never be scared to asked for substations or changes to the menu.
Since this post has ended up being crazy random, I will leave you with this last picture.
I had my first attempt at curling my hair since I cut it a few months back.
It turned out OK. I am so used to straight hair (even though my hair is naturally curly) it felt so strange all day.
What are your weekend plans? Relaxing or do you have big plans?
We will be taking it pretty easy and relaxing most of the weekend.
