Update: May Fitness Challenge (05/23-05/31)

About a year ago, these conversations happened. If you hone in on that very last conversation, we’ll have my current situation now (except that I did not in fact kick Scott out of his room :O ). I didn’t get Lewisburg as my rotation site, but I have in fact officially moved in (as of yesterday!). Linda got me a mango as a housewarming/”welcome home” gift. <3! Life has been pretty awesome in that respect! Not so much in the realm of school, but I’m working to remedy that, and would very much appreciate good thoughts/prayers/etc. for the next month or so. ._.

My brother sent me this to cheer me up. Ninja’s a little on the tubby side because my mom equates food to love, so we affectionately refer to as “the battle tank.” We’re fans of GoT, if you couldn’t tell.

May 23

  • 1 hour + 30 minutes on ellipticals (intervals) while studying (235 questions)

May 24

The test did not go well. At all. I was definitely not in the right state of mind to be studying afterward, so instead, I went back to my apartment to clean and pack everything up. (There is something to be said about productive depression. It did make me feel better to get stuff done despite how upset I was.)

  • 3 hours of cleaning + packing up everything in my apartment and loading it in/out of my car

Speaking of Cordelia (my car, she is so named because she’s an Accord), I’m really, really impressed by just how much she’s capable of holding. :O

May 25

I allowed myself a couple hours of self-loathing the evening before and decided to come back to tackle another chunk of my apartment (kitchen + study room).

  • 2.5 hours of cleaning/packing up my apartment

May 26

  • 1 hour of cleaning/packing
  • 4×10 push-ups

May 27

  • 46 minutes of ellipticals at 6% resistance (did about 80 questions)

Chilean sea bass tacos + grilled chicken over fried rice!

May 28

  • 5 hours of packing and cleaning :[

We lead rather busy lives, so sometimes communication happens through the post-it on the door. :O …Or just post-its throughout the house. Sometimes, we get to eat dinner together though! :D They are glorious.

May 29

  • 5×50 glute bridges
  • 3×10 pushups
  • 20 min. pilates

May 30
Not so sure I did much of anything today other than study. :x I’m sure I walked around a little.

May 31

  • 10 min. hula/Tahitian
  • 25 min. final packing/cleaning!

Total: 1230
(For the record, it feels really weird to count packing/cleaning as exercise/activity, but I guess it did require a lot of box-moving? :x ) I have bruised biceps because the boxes are too ginormous to balance normally.
Running Total: 3962 minutes!
(Start, Week 1, Week 2, Week 3)

The #20×31 fitness challenge is hosted by Jen, Samantha, Carley and Anna. We made it! :D

  1. Sending Positive thoughts your way. Battle Tank is super cute! Cant wait for GOT tonight! I still smile when I remember that King Joffrey is dead, aftereffects still make me happy.

    • Many thanks! :] I can’t wait for GoT tonight either! :D My friends and I have weekly Sunday evening gatherings for it, but I’ve missed out on the last two because of school (sigh). I’m super glad Joffrey’s gone too, hahaha. I remember reading about it but it took so long for him to get killed off in the show (or at least it seemed that way) that I thought maybe I’d just wishfully imagined it. :O

      • Ohhhhhh I hope that I didnt spoil anything if you are behind in episodes. ;{ Im an avid reader, but skipped reading GoT. Although Im sure that Im missing out on juicy details in the book, I love the show for what it is. I like the suspense of not knowing whats going to happen next. Hbo did a great job casting. Whos your favorite character?

      • Nope, not at all! :] I read everything up til A Dance with Dragons (that came out while I was in grad school and med school followed right after, so free time kinda went out the window :[ ). I’ve forgotten a lot, so it’s still kindasorta a surprise. :P I think they’re doing an awesome job with the show too!

        I’m extremely wary of having favorite characters because I don’t want to get too attached to them. NO ONE IS SAFE. :'( (coughcough one has dragons and the other is a tomboy/total badass. I said nothing. :x ) Who’s your favorite? :D

  2. Yay! So glad you stuck with us the whole month!! And moving definitely counts as fitness. Thanks for being so awesome this past month! And so glad we’ve crossed paths :)

  3. you totally killed it girl!!! Congrats!

  4. Yea, you’re not kidding about getting attached to the GoT characters…geez. Nearly all of my favorites are the protagonist female characters. My favorite male character is John Snow. I also like Tyrion but after last night episode…I should just hope for John Snow. :)

    • Those are the male characters that I root for as well! But yeah, I’m usually very afraid for pretty much any character I show any inkling of vested interest towards. ;_; No one’s future looks all that bright right now, hahaha.

  5. Congrats on completing the challenge! I’d count moving! That stuff can be awkward and heavy- much harder than lifting dumbbells :-)

    • Thanks! You raise a good point! There were so many times where I wished I could just make everything in my apartment into the shape of a barbell. It would’ve taken far fewer trips. ;_;
