Hey Spark friends,
It's been a while since I've shared a couple updates about what's been UP in my life lately, so I thought I'd swing by and say HI and share!
First of all, this past month I redesigned my website and have been learning so much about the world of web-management -- I feel like I have Conquered All Things, if ya know what I mean! LOL. It's so incredibly satisfying to have a place that I know I've put my time, energy and thoughts into online for all to see.
Also, relating to the website updates, I'm going to start posting regular Vlogs where I answer reader/listener questions about health and nutrition. I'm pretty stoked, and hope that it goes over well. Posted my first one today (and it got a little longer than I planned... about 9 minutes. Whoops. I talk too much!).
In addition to staying busy with my health coaching biz, I started working PT at a local health food store in their supplements department a couple months ago! I'm only doing a few hours per week, but have been learning SO MUCH lately, and I really love answering customer's questions and shopping with them. I'm being consistent with taking a few standard supplements (multi, probiotic, omegas, etc) and have noticed a big difference in my energy. There is so much to learn!! I actually just had a training call this morning with Genesis Today and learned more about superfruits. It's great info to utilize in my coaching, AND at the health store!
I don't think I've shared this little tidbit here on Spark yet, either.... WE ADOPTED A PUPPY! If you follow me on facebook, you have probably already seen pics of her adorable face, but if not, here ya go:
Can I get an AWWWWWW???? She's friggen cute, I tell ya.
We adopted this girl back in February, when she was only 9 weeks. Of course, she's grown a ton, and is almost six months old now. Her name is Elenore (or Nori, as her nickname), and she is a humane society pup... they said she was a border collie mix - we think mixed with a sheepdog or Tibetan terrier. I got her hair cut a few weeks ago, but before then she looked SO SHAGGY and mangy! It was pretty funny.
Other new happenings: I'm running in the COLOR VIBE 5K RACE tomorrow morning with my husband! I've seen plenty of pics from color runs, and they look so fun! I hope it's a great time. I'm thrilled that my husband (begrudgingly) agreed to run with me. Will share a few pictures afterward.
This morning I tried a new exercise class at the yoga studio: Barre Sculpt. It kicked my @ss. Seriously. I'm a hurtin' unit. Hopefully I'll be able to pound out 3 miles tomorrow morning... The class incorporated some yoga-type moves + sculpting/weight lifting and body weight exercise + cardio bursts + barre (ballet/dance) moves at a bar by the wall. Seriously crazy. I was panting and dripping sweat all over like a nasty wet rag. Had to take a few breather breaks to keep from throwing up (the smoothie before class was a bad idea).
Anyway, that's a little sneak peak into my life as of late! I hope you enjoyed, and will continue to swing by to check in occasionally. I don't spend much time on Spark anymore, but am really active on facebook - find me there to keep in contact, or check out my other blog!
