Hello, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m feeling chatty today and have some things I
need want to tell you so I thought a “highs and lows” post fit the bill. But first, I want to thank you for your supportive and encouraging comments on last Thursday’s post about my post-graduation “plans.” It felt freeing to write and I’m very excited to start my next chapter in 31 (!!) days. Be prepared for frequent mentioning of days left until graduation.
Weekend Highs & Lows
High: Attending the opening of the women’s PUMA Shop at Finish Line in the Macy’s at my local mall (Dadeland Mall). That was a mouthful of a sentence. I went through a FitFluential campaign and got to meet the PUMA-loving celebrity trainer, Astrid Swan. She trains Julianne Hough…see this article for her workout tips!
In the interview she answered that push-ups are her favorite go-to workout move and asked if anyone in the audience wanted to do them with her (she said she does them everywhere) and because no one spoke up, crippled one-legged me volunteered. Not my best push-up form (arms are too wide I think) but not too bad for only using one leg. This photo is us at the top of the push-up.
P.S. Sorry, mom, for wearing the wrong sports bra with this shirt. I was too lazy to change (story of my life).
Low: Speaking of The Boot, it mentioned it before but it is NOT meant for rainy days. It poured on Saturday and I spent a decent amount of time drying it off after.
High: My sister turned 18 this weekend!
Low: I wasn’t with her to celebrate. She’s in college now and I haven’t seen her since August because our breaks didn’t overlap. This is the longest we’ve ever gone without seeing each other. Except for, you know, those three years before she was born when I ruled the house. Now we share the throne.
High: Friday was World Kindness Day and, as a campus rep for KIND snacks, it was the biggest holiday of my year. Slight exaggeration, but it WAS a big deal. To celebrate, I passed out KIND bars with a handwritten note to unsung heroes on campus such as maintenance staff, food service, custodians, administration and professors. Of course, the regular non-hero students got some loving too. People were thrilled!If you didn’t celebrate on Friday, your punishment is to celebrate every day for the rest of your life. Actually, let’s all do that.
Low: The absolutely horrific attacks in Paris that only re-emphasized the need for kindness across the world. There’s not anything I can say here hasn’t already been said and “low” is an extreme understatement. But I’m keeping those people in my prayers.
High: FOUR days until Thanksgiving break.
Low: The Eagles lost in an embarrassing game against the Dolphins. Not my favorite way to end a Sunday. Hey, there’s always next year…
