June was probably THE busiest month in 2021 thus far.
Started the month working a stretch of 6 days in a row. Went to the movies for the first time since 2020 and saw two movies (Cruella & In The Heights). Celebrated my friend Karen’s birthday by going to the movies and eating sushi. Celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary at Wahoo’s. Worked another stretch of 6 days. Went to Atlanta for the wedding of my freshman roommate from Samford University. Then we vacayed on the GA coast for some long overdue r+r.

ONE FEAR I CONQUERED
I rode a bike for the first time in a long time. I used to ride stationary bikes all the time in PA school to study and exercise simultaneously, but real bikes are another story. While we were visiting Jekyll Island, Cary and I decided to rent bikes to tour the island and do some more exploring. I was actually pretty nervous at first, but I quickly conquered my fear and began to really enjoy it. Sounds petty and small, but little victories can feel like major triumphs. Truthfully, I loved it, and it made me really want to get back into biking.
FAVORITE POSTS ON KITCHY LIVING
This month, I focused less on organized exercise but still did a lot of movement. I move a lot while at work (usually anywhere from 6-8,000 steps daily), and then when Cary and I were on vacation, we biked, walked, explored, and swam. I only had 10 organized exercise sessions this month, but I still felt like I was moving my body. It’s important to simply move your body and engage in daily movement. You don’t have to lift weights or go on a run everyday to be fit. Do what feels good for your body, but always try to engage in exercise when you can. Your body craves it because it needs movement.
