This week was challenging in terms of workouts because I felt sick for a lot of it…but I managed to get some good walks and weights in to keep me going.
The interesting thing about me and migraines is that when I get a nice workout it actually relieves the migraine better than pain meds.
Believe me, working out is really the last thing I want to, but when I start breathing through my workouts it regulates my breath and blood flow to the brain.
I really enjoyed this second week of heavier weights in smaller reps for Best Body Bootcamp because my muscles were a little more used to the extra push from last week. It felt great to feel the strength continue to take shape, especially in my upper body.
During yoga class I am able to lower myself from plank to floor in chataranga without going to my knees and that feel amazing to be able to do.
Yesterday was also a great test of strength and endurance because my sister and I went on a 6 mile cross country jog, and my muscles were much better at enduring the strain of it. Having good company, good tunes, and a beach view from the bluffs didn’t hurt either though!
My sweet tooth was also put to the test this weekend when my sister and I made real French Macarons!
We had been talking about making them for awhile and finally did it.
We made literally melt in your mouth oh my gosh the sugar foment neopolitan ones where one side was vanilla, the other chocolate, and red berry frosting was sandwiched in between.
They were very labor intensive and very picky cookies to make but they were so worth the effort!
We modified a recipe we found on YouTube for a Kirby macarons so I will include the link below.
Also HAPPY MOTHERS DAY if you are a mom!!!
