That was followed by breakfast, hoovering, laundry, cleaning and packing before i set off for the gym. Not sure how it would go and i didnt want to do too much, but once i got there i was completely pain free (and no painkillers/medication for the past 48 hours, so i know that its not that i am covering up pain or anything like that. No pain at the moment) and i had so much energy!! And as i had no time pressure or anywhere to be i could spend as much time there as i wanted!! It felt so good to be back, its felt so strange not going to the gym the past few days but i know that my body has needed rest and well, ive gotten alot of studying done so thats a positive, but i am glad to be back now!!
I know many panic about resting and not working out, thinking that you will lose your progress or lose all your muscles or become weak or lose your conditioning etc That is not the case. Your body needs rest, and even if this was a sort of involuntary rest i still rested and usually after a period of lots of working out i try to take a few days off so that my body can fully recover. And that was what my body did now, so now i had lots of energy and was so much stronger than a week ago despite not actually working out this week. So that felt pretty good and now i am high on endorphines and just want to smile and am longing until tomorrow when i will workout with my sister, as i am heading back to Stockholm this evening.
I really dont want to travel to Stockholm, i moved here so that i wouldnt have to travel and could avoid all of that... but nope, im still travelling back and forth :( If there is one thing i dislike alot, that is public transport and having to spend alot of time travelling... i am so tired of it, and after this weekend i just want to spend a few weeks where i dont have to travel back to Stockholm.
I am going to travel back on Sunday morning as i have school work/group work to do so it's just a short visit but thats ok. Ill get to see my boyfriend, workout with my sister and hopefully get a chance to head home so i can visit Daisy as well as pick up some packages :)

I hope you have all had a great day and have a great weekend, Do you have any weekend plans? :)
