Talk about MIA! All week, Lauren has been asking me when I am going to update the blog and today is the day :)
Not much has been going on in terms of fun/fitness/cooking, but there’s a good reason for that!
This was the first week at my internship, and I absolutely loved it. The team I am working with is very fun, everyone is nice and helpful, and I am learning a lot……. and I even got some red velvet cake. Costco does it so so well.
My nights have been pretty laid back… working all day is actually pretty tiring haha.
One thing that has been bothering me this past week is not being able to run. My left hip/butt area has been hurting since the hill run two weekends ago, and I literally haven’t run in 7 full days. It’s killing me.
According to the chiropractor, my right L5 was out of place and it was inflaming my left piriformis muscle, which upsets the sciatica. Uuhhhhhh ya. Translation—
It hasn’t been fun, but I’ve still been able to bike without pain. I’ve been icing, rolling on a tennis ball (hurts so good), and taking anti-inflammatory meds. Slowly but surely, I’ll be back and running.
Last night, I flew to Chicago with my mom for Memorial Day weekend. We stayed the night at my Aunt Cindy’s house (the one with the supercute twin daughters) and drove down into Southern Illinois this morning.
Today we are relaxing by the pool, enjoying the sunshine (and humidity), and having a cookout. Speaking of… I should get back to tanning.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend :)
