12/27: Thankful Thursday
It's Christmas holidays, I've been home for a lovely ten days, and I'm constantly surrounded by my amazing family and friends. The list could go on and on about all that I am thankful for, but why don't we just carry on with my weekly Thankful Thursday post? 🙂
Friday, Dec. 21st – On Friday I was thankful for meeting up with two friends in a single day! I met up with one friend for lunch and the other for an evening tea date! 🙂
Saturday, Dec. 22nd – On Saturday I was thankful for seeing friends whom I hadn't seen in nearly four years! It was like a big high school reunion! 🙂
Sunday, Dec. 23rd – On Sunday I was thankful for FaceTiming my "sister" Sara 🙂
Monday, Dec. 24th – On Monday I was thankful for visitng with some family members, such as my second cousins, whom I rarely see.
Tuesday, Dec. 25th – On Tuesday I was thankful for having so many fun family traditions! 🙂 One of my favourites being the crab feast which takes place every Christmas Day.
Wednesday, Dec. 26th – On Wednesday I was thankful for having my ideal boxing day. As much as I love to shop, I always receive so much for Christmas, so I really don't like taking part in the crazy Boxing Day shopping. On Wednesday, I spent the entire morning at home with my family. I baked some more sweet potato biscuits and simply enjoyed being home for the holidays! 🙂 I was also able to get to the gym for a shoulder, biceps, and core workout which made me feel great, too 🙂 This is what I did:
Boxing Day Upper Body Workout
DB shoulder press 1 warm up set of 12 reps followed by 3 x 8 – 10 with a heavier weight
Upright barbell row 3 x 10
DB lateral raise 3 x 8 – 10
Seated rear delt DB raise 3 x 8 – 10
Barbell curl 3 x 8 – 10
Cable rope curl 3 x 8 – 10
Alternating DB curl 3 x 8 – 10
Cable crunch 3 x 20
V-ups on bench 3 x 15 – 20
Thursday, Dec. 27th – Today I am thankful for knowing my boyfriend will be waiting at the airport for me in London 🙂 I always arrive to the airport without anyone awaiting me, so this is really exciting for me to have someone pick me up! 🙂
What are you thankful for today?
