An Object in Motion Stays in Motion… Life Updates! 8.29.16

Hellooooooo!! Longest hiatus ever I know. Therefore… I definitely have plenty to update you with!  We have been zooming around to various races/events, enjoying our perfect little puppy growing up and growing HUGE already, and of course I am still completely grateful and loving my personal training gig, with my yoga practice peppered in still.

 

We completed a triathlon two weeks ago in Oconomowoc, WI and it was a blast!! We had some rainy weather during our swim which led to pretty choppy waves but we finished strong and Patrick and I BOTH had personal records!! Pretty proud there. The sad part… The race didn’t give out medals… WHAT! I was pretty sad. They gave them out last year so I’ll have to reevaluate this race before signing up next year 😉 the medal is SO IMPORTANT! I mean right??

And just two days ago, we completed a half marathon, with my great friend Sarah and my dad too! Although I haven’t run…much…at…all… Since our marathon in May. We pushed through, had fun, and are so happy we finished upright and no injuries!

Isn’t it refreshing to sometimes joins race with no aspirations or expectations? Just to do it for fun and to finish? The course was wonderful and we relaxed with family and friends after to celebrate!

Baymax is already 6 months old. WHAT. Yeah, he’s the most happy and playful puppy but still makes time to cuddle with mama 🙂 he’s over 60 lbs too… That just proves to us he will get close to 100 lbs when he’s full grown. SO EXCITED but we love watching him grow up in the meantime 🙂

I have still been working on my yoga practice although sadly I haven’t been to an actual class in over a month. BUT my sister got me a gift card to a wonderful studio near my apartment so I can now use that to get my butt into a studio! Thanks sista 🙂

We also got to spend a lot of awesome family time at Irish Fest this year! And got to watch my little sister dance. This is only her… 5th year I think – and she’s already advanced to one of the top classes 🙂 #irishpride

On top of ALLLLL of that, I have finally found my path in terms of my scheduling. My days were 13+ hours away from home, constantly driving back and forth between home, the gym, and my other day time desk job… it was getting to be a LOT. BUT I finally figured out what works best for me, my body, my time and ability, and my employers have been amazing at letting me factor everything in so it all makes sense.

Being myself. Staying true. Focusing on my real goals. And helping others every single day. That’s my calling and that’s how I keep flowing and keep moving. #inertia

 

Happy  Monday everybody ❤ Hope you all are happy and healthy!

Message me if you have any personal training questions – I’m on a ROLL and would love to help anyone who has questions about diet or training in the gym 🙂

Mwah!! xoxo,
