Last semester started with elderberry syrup and in-person classes. This semester I’m taking it a step further by adding in Rae Wellness’s vitamin c and zinc immunity shots. To read more about my experience with Rae supplements check out my Instagram post @baileykmarshall.
Supplements aren’t for everyone. I probably don’t need extra vitamin c. But here’s the thing: positive thinking (e.g. thinking that you won’t get sick) boosts your immune system! It’s probably the only time wishful thinking might actually work…and I’m going to take it!
(side note: my best friend told me that taking extra vitamin D helps prevent Covid so I might give that a try too just to be on the safe side)
Another sneaky way to get more greens in my diet that I’ve been eyeballing for a while is using “super greens” powder. I’ve seen fitness bloggers talk about it before, and I’ve always been skeptical because, ya know, it’s a powder you buy off the internet. Plenty of things could go wrong when you ingest powders from the internet. But I got an Amazon gift card for my birthday so I figured I’d give it a go. Here’s the brand I’m going to get, and I’ll link a blogpost reviewing it once it gets here!
My classes are going to be mostly in person again this semester. Vaccinations have been distributed to the medical school, but most of the undergrad and law school campus will not receive a vaccine until much later on. Everyone in my building will be asked to wear a mask and stay six feet apart, especially when we are seated for class. It worked last semester, with less than fifty people catching COVID in the undergrad and graduate campus for the whole semester. Fingers crossed it works again this semester!
I’m doing my best to stay healthy and not catch anything, which translates into staying in as much as possible. I’ve been to the gym one time since quarantine started in March, and that one time was in early January where I had the whole barre room to myself. I honestly felt like a fitness influencer working out in a fully mirrored room all by myself! It was a fun moment, but probably not something I’ll be doing again any time soon as I’ve gotten into the routine of doing home workouts.
Here is my go to workout video for working out from home: 30 min FULL BODY SCULPT
I’ve also been binge watching Mari Fitness Youtube videos…I’m gonna fudge and say it’s for inspiration and motivation, but really I just like her personality and how hype she is about everything. I need more of that right now.
Speaking of needing things…I put these workout tanks into my cart as soon as I saw them. Nothing gets me more excited to workout than new fitness gear!
