Happy Sunday, ya’ll!
This weekend was crazy.
As many of you know, I studied abroad for a year at Oxford (England), and have great friends from that journey. A friend of mine from that experience met up with two girls who had just returned from studying abroad, so it was two generations of Oxford!
Myself and Sabrina, the “old” generation…
… with Lauren and Dorothy, the “newest” generation. Cute! We enjoyed lunch at Bistro Francais in Georgetown. I had the Rachel salad, which consisted of spinach leaves, avocado, and crab meat. Delicious.
I was a member of the clean-plate club.
After, my best friend drove up to DC and we went to Adams Morgan, a very popular up-and-coming neighborhood in DC. We went to Madams Organ for dinner, and had delicious barbeque chicken with candied yams, fried okra and too many french fries.
Such strange restaurant décor… (don’t bring your kids here, folks).
This week is the very last week of my American Red Cross internship in DC. How time flies! I’ll be doing lots of exciting things, wrapping up my research, and saying the final goodbyes! Eeep. But, above all this, I’ll be trying to stay fit!
My hips have been struggling this past weekend, but I’m still going to make sure to get a few workouts in. When I get back to Ohio, I’m going to step up the pace and really start watching my clean eating. I’ve been off the wagon too long.
Monday – Walk 1 mile to PT, then 1+ miles to friend’s house for dinner. Potentially have a quick 15 minute arc trainer session pre-walk to PT.
Tuesday – Abs and upper body circuit, plus 30 minute arc trainer interval session (30 sec sprint, 30 sec moderate).
Wednesday – Abs and lower body circuit, plus 40 minute arc trainer interval session (10 minute moderate, 20 minute of 45-sec sprint and 90 sec moderate intervals, 10 minute moderate).
Thursday – Walk 1 mile to PT. Potentially have a quick 15 minute arc trainer session pre-walk to PT.
Friday – Abs and upper body circuit, plus 30 minute arc trainer interval session (30 sec sprint, 30 sec moderate).
Saturday – fly home!
