I’m so glad so many of you are up for the 25 Days of Push-Ups challenge! I actually have two tips to share today….
First, if you can’t do a full push-up, check out the comments section on yesterday’s post…there are lots of great suggestions to working up to them!
Secondly, I have decided to change the exercise frequency to 3-5 times/week. I’ve received contrasting information from different trainers, with some saying that 3 times a week is best for muscle recovery (which I have also read elsewhere), and others saying that 5x/week should be fine. So listen to your body and figure out what is best for you!
Today seems like a good day for a Little Things post, don’t you agree?
- Today is my last day of classes. One week from today, I will be done with college!
- Dan and I will be married in 24 days. That is SUCH a small number.
- My grandpa made me the sweetest birthday gift, and I’ve cried both times that I’ve watched it. He pulled together all the home video clips he had of me and compiled them into one DVD for me, and sent me another CD with a bunch of photos from throughout the past 23 years. Thank you, grampa!
- New Glo bars came in the mail! I’m excited to try the Chi flavor.
- I ordered some gardening books with my Barnes and Noble gift card, so I’ll get to plan out my vegetable/herb garden after finals!
- Thai leftovers. Enough said.
- Yoga has been my go-to workout lately, what with all the stress of the past two weeks. I’m loving the sore, shaking, but relaxed feeling I have after a good Power Yoga session.
- Soon, I will have plenty of time for long bike rides, which I haven’t been able to squeeze in lately.
- We turned in our senior design project reports yesterday. Ironically, the topic of our project was sustainability, but we each had two binders worth of documentation to turn in…
- I met up with Maleah of Cha Cha tea at Brasserie V the other day for a late lunch. I was buying a teapot from her, and since she lives in Madison, she offered to bring it to me in person so I wouldn’t have to pay shipping. She also gave me some samples of her tea, and we chatted for a good hour and a half about tea and being a small local business.
I learned SO much and was so inspired, that I decided to have a Tea Week on Savvy Eats towards the end of May, including the science and history behind tea, and some unique recipes. Stay tuned!
What little things are making YOU happy today?
