My New Initials
OK, maybe not too secret. Honestly I’ve just forgotten to tell ya’ll about my new adventure!
For the past couple weeks, I’ve been taking about an hour a day to do some reading, writing, and
arithmetic note-taking. What am I studying for, you ask?
I’m studying to get my group fitness certification! I’m not certified in group fitness, but I figured I’ll likely want to teach a class sometime here in the future, and it will be helpful for my boot camp. Plus, who doesn’t like more initials to put after your name?
I get to add GFI to my list!
A lot of it is review – stuff I already know from personal training – so far, but it looks like it will be a lot of fun to read once we get into the thick of it. The best part?
I ordered my own flash cards. I love using flash cards to study, but hate making the flash cards themselves. Problem solved
Apart from an hour of study time, today’s been a pretty busy one so far. After finishing this morning’s blog post, I put together a playlist (coming atcha tomorrow!) and headed out for a 4+ ish mile run.
It was GORGEOUS during the entire run. That combined with a bumpin’ new playlist made the run super enjoyable. My legs are still a little sore from this workout, but the run seemed to loosen them up a tad.
After a quick shower (seriously, like 5 minutes) I changed and headed out the door to train an in-home client, breakfast in tote:
Chocolate cherry kiss smoothie: 1 c. coconut milk + vanilla pp + cocoa powder + chia seeds + instant coffee + almond meal + frozen cherries + ice. Yums.
Then I came home, walked Niko, and headed into the gym to put in a few hours.
Whenever I’m at the gym, I always eat my lunch at the desk. There’s some down time around lunch time, so it’s typically uninterrupted, but today, I was reading an article in Fitness magazine that interrupted it a bit:
Uhhh. Yeah, hearing desks are dirtier than toilet seats is not the best thing to read while you’re chowing down on some kidney bean + egg salad:
Regardless, it was delicious. I used my recipe for kidney bean salad, and then added in one HB egg + one HB egg white, over a bed of greens.
Apple and an uber larabar on the side – but not the bar in the picture. Instead, I had the cherry pie uber bar. I liked the roasted nut one way better, which surprised me because the cherry pie regular larabar is one of my favorites. I love dried cherries – and really cherries in any form – if you couldn’t tell
Time to go live the rest of the day. Hope it’s a good one for you!
What was the last thing you studied for?
Where do you usually eat your lunch?
