The first official week of being stuck in our apartment is over. I still cannot believe how crazy life has gotten over the past month. Since I have so much time on my hands now, I am going to be sharing more of our life in these little weekly recap posts. I used to write in journals EVERYDAY as a kid….and since I’ve grown up, I no longer write as much. So i’m hoping to use these posts as a way to keep writing…and documenting my life through the crazy time of Coronavirus, medical school and wedding planning/postponing/cancelling (still up in the air what we will have to do)!!
After I dropped my mom & sister off at the airport on Wednesday morning…(THANKFULLY THEY MADE IT HOME TO HAWAII)
I drove to Milwaukee and got to work. I had so many hours of lecture to catch up on!
It’s crazy having ALL of our classes online….I feel like I have a ton of free time…while still having that constant “I have so much to do and can never get caught up” feeling that all medical students live with.
In order to keep ourselves active during the day, Josh and I have been doing 2 walks a day…one in the morning and one in the evening…as well as doing our @home workouts!!! It feels so nice to get some fresh air and walk on trails near our apartment that we never even knew existed. Our walks are something that i look SO forward to everyday!
I’m sure that you’ve seen all the posts about how US Weekly told people to stop posting their online workouts. I couldn’t believe that they would publish something like that!!! I’m sorry, but have you seen the obesity statistics for this country?! THEY ARE INSANE. So I encourage EVERYONE to share what they are doing to stay healthy. IT IS SO IMPORTANT. US Weekly—- whoever approved that article is an IDIOT. KEEP SHOWING YOUR HOME WORKOUTS PEEPS.
I found one of my “before” pictures on my phone and compared it to one from Saturday…i can’t believe how much muscle I have gained since starting these programs. I wish i could go back in time and start these programs sooner. It breaks my heart to think of all the years I wasted hating my body.
Saturday was another day spent at home, catching up on lectures and coach work. Now, more than ever, I am so thankful to run an online business where all I need is my phone and wifi. My heart truly goes out to all of the people and families out of work and struggling financially. Hopefully the government does something to truly help people who are struggling!
To fill our time a little bit, we watched Tiger King on Netflix…Josh and I saw so many thing about it online, we had to see what all the fuss was about!! It was probably one of the weirdest shows i’ve ever seen…I don’t know if i would recommend it…it’s just plain weird.
***CAROL TOTALLY FED HER HUSBAND TO THE TIGERS.
Speaking of food, Josh and I tried @OmahaSteaks this week for dinner. My parents bought Josh a HUGE gift box from Omaha Steaks for Christmas and we are just getting around to trying the meat!!! We used a cast iron pan to fry the pork chops and HOLY CANNOLI, they were delicious. Super juicy and tender! We also cooked the potatoes au gratin…YUM YUM & YUM. I can’t wait to try the rest of the stuff we have in the freezer!!!
Sunday was another LAZY day at home (SHOCKER) We did watch a super INCREDIBLE, FREAKY, SCARY, AMAZING, THRILLING movie called The Invisible Man. It was such a suspenseful movie!!! 10/10 recommend!!!! Since it was super windy and cold all day, we couldn’t go on our two walks…so instead we went on a long drive through the country. It was relaxing to just drive through the hills…listen to good music and talk!
I can’t stand to watch the news anymore…but i do check up on the COVID-19 stats daily. My heart is breaking for all those families who are mourning. Stay home. Stay safe. Practice social-distancing. Let’s kick this virus.
