Hello folks! So as I’m typing this my arms are INSANELY sore! Every summer at Mississippi State, my office hosts a camp called LeaderSTATE camp where 60 JROTC students come during each week of June and learn leadership skills, complete a STEM activity and do PT every morning. A few years back I was a counselor for the camp and then the next year I actually coordinated the first year that we teamed up with the Army and so leaderSTATE holds a special place in my heart! Since I work in this office again and have been since August, I’m lucky enough to be here this summer to participate in some of the LeaderSTATE activities and my absolute favorite one is PT! So I’ve been at PT last week and this week and y’all I’m hurting! It consists of an hour of yoga on Tuesday nights, and 3 mornings (5:05AM!) of full activity with a 1.3 mile run to the gym, a 30 minute plyometrics workout, and 1.3 mile run back.
Am I the only one that feels weird not writing an “It’s OK” post anymore?
Maybe you saw this tweet….
True Story. That was my life at work yesterday.
I really shouldn’t complain though because I’m thankful that I have the ability to participate in vigorous physical activity and build a better me and I know I’m sore because I worked my tail off and I’ll benefit from it in the end – but that does make me a little slower throughout the day because it hurts. No pain, No gain? Is that really the case? I haven’t decided yet!
I’m hoping by the end of the month I’ll see huge improvements!
Wish me luck as I make my way out for another 5:05AM workout.
FYI… I started this post intending to update y’all on my 101 in 1001, how in the world I ended up with this, I’m not sure? Guess y’all can wait for the 101 in 1001 until next time.
Have you signed up for the Bloggers Helping Bloggers opportunity I posted about this week!? I have 16 people signed up so far and I’m super excited about it! I love the fact that it’s focused on praying for each other and sharing encouragement with each other and buying gifts is optional, and if you choose to buy a gift, there isn’t a price you have to commit too. [Being honest… I came up with that particular idea because my piggy bank is hurting over some of the boxes I’ve participated with (don’t get me wrong, I love them and they’re great!), once you buy stuff and mail, it’s about $30 and this VISTA makes pennies… like less than minimum wage for 40hours a week] So I hope this helps others too who aren’t ready to spend that much money or just need a month or two break from the bigger box exchanges, but still want to meet a new blogger and receive and give encouragement!
Have a wonderful Thursday sweet friends!
