I had a pretty chill week. I spent a lot of time taking care of the home this week (cooking, cleaning, etc) because I had a minor IT band injury and chose to recover before I went back to the gym and made it worse, so I only worked out twice this week and we didn’t go hiking either. I did start a rehab and strengthening therapy for recovery and prevention of IT band and hip injuries caused by weak hips and gluteus medius muscles.
I suffer from recurring hip pain since my ballet hip injury 3 years ago and for the first time my IT band was affected (hurt). I keep reading that the culprit of my problems is this gluteus medius muscle, so I have decided to work specifically to strengthen it. I also read it is a common weak muscle in people, so if you are interested: these and these are the exercises I started doing everyday. It only takes like 10 minutes.
Anyway, here are my small pleasures of the week:
1. Wonderful weather this week. It was sunny and around the upper 60’s which is plenty warm for me!
2. Amazing landscapes surrounding me. From beautiful sunsets to stunning mountains. They’re on the way to the gym, and at home. I’m just loving living here and the beauty all around.
3. Rose lemonade. I love the rose flavour. I fell in love with it the first time I had rose ice cream at an Indian restaurant. So when I found rose lemonade I had to try it and it was every bit delightful.
4. Saturday brunch. We had no plans this weekend and we stayed near out home but we did go out to have some yummy brunch at a cool local bakery.
