On The Move Again
We’ve officially been in Seattle now for 1 month and we are in are third and final Airbnb that we had booked ahead of time. We have been on the hunt for a permanent place, but let’s just say that it hasn’t been easy. Some days we feel like we are getting closer to finding something and some days we talk about just buying an RV and taking off. Tune in next week for an update on the saga.
On Monday, I released a podcast episode all about organization. It is full of tips and tricks from the OT 4 Lyfe community sharing their best advice for getting and staying organized. I also asked a new “Question of the Month”- What’s your best advice for OT and OTA students? To answer, leave a comment in the community and also a voicemail so I can feature you in an upcoming podcast episode.
We’re also just about halfway done with the #30daylungechallenge. That’s 50 lunges (25 a side) for 30 days. And we even threw in a burnout challenge the other day, doing every movement challenge exercise to date, including 50 burpees, 50 squats, and a 1 minute plank on top of the lunges. If you wanna join in, post a video on your Instagram story, tag me @ot.4.lyfe, and use the #lunges4lyfe so we can hold each other accountable #accountabilOT. Check out my IG stories everyday to see all the lungers in action.
