We had a birthday to celebrate amongst my friends today which called for our first trail run of the season! Every time we head east, 2 minutes away from our homes and run up the mountain and above the city, we are always truly grateful that we live so close to such a beautiful place. It was the perfect temperature too! It’s 7 miles up and down. Only one of us crashed on the way down this time. Battle scars rock!
It’s such a great time of year to get active and moving! I have my first client set up to personal train too! Do I have any idea where to start? Not really. I called a friend of mine who is a personal trainer and who’s done a fitness competition too and I’ll have her give me a few pointers. I know what I want, but I think my challenge will be devising a plan that someone else wants. It’ll be fun of course. The teaching part of my fit life might be on hold for a bit right now too. Changes to the gym are not making me too happy and my favorite class has been cancelled. Not a big deal. Monday I’m going to get back into my Jamie Eason weight training and get very serious about my diet. I looked up the fitness competition I want to do and it’s on October 19th!!! 5 months. Next week I’m hoping to meet with trainers from Team Huegly and then I’ll get rolling. It’ll be a fun challenge and I’m looking forward to learning a lot.
Life is too short. Do what you love and go after every dream! I need to get working on my yard and adding more plants and flowers. Next week I’ll share my before and after shots of the front of my house that I want to work on. We picked up a bunch of potted plants and hanging baskets this week and they are perfectly calming to me. Here are a few from my yard.
Chocolate chip cookies are perfectly calming to me too!! Yum!
