Its so fascinating and inspiring to see that life can change in just a few minutes, hours, days, weeks. I have had so many incredible updates to share with you all! And I hope you are all doing well too and staying warm and happy in these colder months.
The best and most recent exciting news for me is… this Monday, I passed my exam to obtain my ACE Personal Training Certification! I am THRILLED. Guys, I was studying…and studying…and studying. Anatomy is NOT easy (duh) and I had never studied it before. I did have to study for my group fitness certification that I received last year, but nowhere near in as much detail. Knowing Anatomy is crucial to helping clients of all ages, backgrounds, injuries they may have experienced, and creating programs very clearly focus around what specific issues the clients come to the table with.
That being said! I passed! I’m certified! And I can’t wait to get involved with a gym; family and friends; and get the fun started with dipping my feet in the water!
Last weekend was so busy. We had two holiday parties, lots of finger food, marathon training build-up runs, and allllll the Criminal Minds we could throw in there, in addition to final studying hours before my exam. Yes, Criminal Minds is my absolute new favorite Netflix show, and we cannot get enough of it!
Our holiday parties were fantastic, and it was great to see friends from our various social groups, as always 🙂 Holiday parties in January? Yeah, I’ll take it!
Patrick and I have started a new tradition, where we find recipes (or in our case, Tasty video recipes from Facebook) to make together on Sundays (or Saturdays). Sunday, we made parmesan pretzel chicken bites and mini cheddar dog pretzels! DANG were they all so freaking good. We couldn’t stop eating them! Stay tuned for more of them in my weekly posts. #nomz.
My yoga has been pretty exciting lately; I’ve been kickboxing, running, lifting weights, and still maintaining my yoga practice as best as I can. It’s tiring, and I’m sore all the time, but it feels really good to feel good. 🙂 Patrick and I really want to NAIL our training for our marathon, so there will be no slacking for these marathon trainers!
I have also had some great movement with my job hunting, so stay tuned on that… 🙂
Any awesome updates with you guys? ❤ Thanks for the read!
