This is certainly not an excuse but there are a few reasons why I haven’t been able to write in here for a while. I have been so very busy!
And it is all good things. First my studying for the Personal Trainer’s exam is going well. But it is really tough! There is so much to learn in a short time and it’s all science. With my leg feeling much better, my workouts are ramping up. I’m doing a whole lot more stretching, strength work along with my running. I’m teaching beginning runners as well, plus trying new sports, including kickboxing, yoga and weight lifting.
The weight is coming off and I’m losing inches. I’ve been eating much healthier, very little white flour or white sugar, with less whole wheat flour; I hardly ever have bread or pasta anymore. In fact, I had a chicken sandwich tonight for the first time in more than a week and it felt like a real treat. Vegetables and healthier proteins have replaced all the wheat products and I have much more energy. And maybe it’s just old age creeping up on me, but dairy hasn’t been feeling too great for me as of late, so I’ve cut back on that as well, replacing much of it with coconut milk and in other healthy ways that I can.
But I will be blogging more. And I will be adding more health-related information, including recipes, reviews, and anything else that may pique interest.
Tonight, I ran up the Filbert Steps to Coit Tower for the second week in a row. It’s really hard and I huffed and puffed most of the way. But I did do better than I had last week and that’s not a bad thing.
Wednesday has me going for my first deadlift session. I’ll tell you all about it!
