This week has been busy, with tons of meetings, events and fun, but busy, busy, busy. My running buddy sent me this quote the other day and it’s so true, and so perfect for the busy, hectic, lives we lead. ( PS she is super mom, balances work, family, fitness, healthy eating, and fun!).
So true right? Were all busy, we just need to prioritize what matters. My dear friend is moving to NYC, and NYC is so lucky to be getting her. S and I went to college together and have monthly date nights together and it means the world to me to have such an amazing friend as her. Now I will just be visiting NYC a lot more 🙂 We have been trying to go HERE and use the FIRE PITS for s’mores. For $12 they give you all you need for a fantastic night: Marshmallow, reese’s peanut Butter cups, hershey’s chocolate, sliced Banana, graham crackers! Reservations are recommended for the fire pits. Seating are at 5,7, and 9.
This week I also took a CPR class and got a good refresher in some basic’s.
CPR is the same for everyone, its 30 compressions to the chest and 2 breaths. For adults you can interlock your hands ( two hands to the chest), for children (1-8 years only) one hand to the chest ( two if you get tired) and Infants ( under 1) two fingers to the chest. With adults and children, make sure to pinch the nose closed, with infants put your mouth over their mouth and nose with the breaths. Breather only enough into the chest to have it rise slightly and fall. Too harsh of breaths will go right to the stomach ( causing them to throw up) and not get air in their lungs. A basic and great explanation can be found here. No matter what you do call 9-1-1. If you call 9-1-1 your doing more then 90% of people out there. The class also covered the Heimlich maneuver . For adults ask the chocking person where their belly button is, make a fist about one inch up from belly button, thumb of fist facing in, thrust in and up. This is the same for adults and children. With infants ( under one) lay them over your leg, head down ( feet are higher then head) and 5 open palm hits to the back, flip them over ( head still lower then feet) and 5 2 finger compressions to the chest.
Also I saw this article and was reminded how great these basic exercises are.
Single Arm Overhead Press
Pull Over with Weights
Single Leg Work ( single leg box jumps, jumping/ landing one foot).
Single Leg Lateral Work ( Boy Bands).
and if you rather just get a fantastic workout with me in inperson for FREE then show up tomorrow at Christopher Columbus Park in Boston ( by Marriott Long Wharf) and come to the LAST free Bootcamp of the summer. It’s a great group of people, a hard workout, and free! So don’t miss out on the last class for free of the summer.
Also one utterly perfect sunset for you, it was the pinks and blues that got me. Have you been seeing some good sunsets/ sunrises. I feel like this summer has been amazing with the beautiful colors in the sky.
Any fun Thursday/ Weekend Plans?
Do you love s’mores too?
Favorite kid dessert!
