Hello there! how are you ? How was your week? Work has been busy and life has been busy too.
I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia this week.
Tuesday: Cardio Funk class x2
Wednesday: 3 easy miles with sprints at the end, + weights
Thursday: 2.5 miles of intervals + Weights
Friday: 7 miles easy
Sunday: 5 miles
Last Tuesday my legs were feeling really tired, so I didn't plan to run. The cardio Funk instructor was doing two classes, back to back, so I ended up staying for that instead of running on the treadmill. (each class is easily worth 3 slow miles)
Ouch! That hurt!
Can I just say intervals are really hard and exhausting? ok, that is out of the way now... Good thing I made tacos to recover from that.
Very Much Loving !
Friday I had an appointment with US Immigration and Naturalization Services, for my fingerprints. I was going to drag this out and make a big announcement, but I decided that was overly dramatic. So here it is, I am becoming a citizen of the United States. My current status is a Legal Resident, but after much consideration about fees, and my life, I made the choice to apply to become a citizen. The next step in the process will be to have an interview and a civics test with US Immigration and Naturalization, probably in the next 6 months. In the mean time, I'll be studying the 100 questions, and hoping they will not ask me who is President.
Friday I took a break from all social media, and I want to say to all of you, I'm sorry for not reading your blogs, or liking your post that day. I needed a small break from the inauguration stuff. I will go back and catch up.
Saturday was a restful day, I wen to see my mom for her Birthday. We went to get Crepes, and we ended up playing dress up and dancing in the living room. Well, it was mostly me dancing and dressing up, but it was still a lot of fun. We even did a recreation of Dirty Dancing I've Had The Time Of My Life, with the lifting of the Baby and all!
It was also very inspiring to see all the Women Marchers! What an amazing group of people!
Hitler's Furies By Wendy Lower. It has been very interesting to read about how women helped the Nazis during WWII, and how they were helping a cause that was also against them. What has struck me the most so far, is how citizens of Germany were encouraged to allow Hitler to "unify them" and encouraged to "give him a chance". It sounded eerily familiar.
How much do intervals hurt for you?
What do you put inside your Crepe? I'm either Nutella or strawberries and cream.
Do you play dress up with your family?
Could you pass the USA Citizenship test? Quickly, without looking on Google, who is your State Representative, and your Senator?
