Wow, this week has just been non-stop! I’m still exhausted from all the holiday parties, work and trying to cram some workouts in between.
Yesterday I headed over to Lululemon Greenville for a WOD hosted by Jenn of Crossfit Greer. I don’t remember the exact workout, but there were kettlebell swing and burpees and I’m sore! I also went for a run with my friend M. (we’re doing the Charleston Half together). I was a little pathetic because I was tired and my hip still hurts, so I only did a little over 8 miles, but M. did the whole 9!
A note on the hip issue, I did go to the doctor this week to have it looked at. She said it didn’t look like a stress fracture but because I’ve had one before (in my right tibia), I’m at risk, so I need to be careful and if the pain gets worse I need to come back. She said it was probably just a muscle strain, so big relief there!
The rest of this post is going to be pretty random.
Some things this week I didn’t like:
2. I tried Kombucha for the first time ever…
After I spilled it all over myself and my car (DO NOT SHAKE, SERIOUSLY), I drank it. DID NOT LIKE. The flavor wasn’t bad, but the texture was downright nasty, and for a $4 price tag, will probably not buy again unless someone tells me it will make me awesome.
3. Cookie Fail!
4. I almost died (not really) twice this week! South Carolina drivers are crazy. And that’s all I have to say about that!
Onto some good things from this week!
1. Finished all my Christmas shopping!
4. Cookie Exchange Party at Katie’s house!
Yea, that’s a lot of cookies. I might die of sugar overload. Everything was so good! We also did an ornament exchange, which was so cute =) We mentioned that it would be a good idea for Katie to post all the recipes on her blog, but here’s the recipe I used.
