Hello Blog World! 🙂
Phew, where has the time gone?! Let’s catch up!
Last week I finished up my job at the supplement store and started my new job as a full time Fitness Specialist. This week is my first full week at my new job so it’s been taking me a little while to get into a groove with things. I don’t know about you, but it takes me a good couple of months to really feel comfortable at a new job, so this time period is always a bit awkard! But, everyone’s gotta be new at some point 😉
So far I really enjoy the job. My co-workers are great and have a ton of experience in the field so I am learning a lot from them. I’m also back to teaching a full schedule of classes and wow, is my body hurtin’…and it’s only Tuesday! I teach 7 classes per week right now and have also been attending other ones to get ideas and to get a feel for the class participants. It’s been fun, but exhausting. It takes me a little while to get used to so much activity, but i’ll get there. My appetite also changes…I’ve been extra hungry so I make sure to pack lots of snacks for the day so I can stay fueled and energized.
My running has taken a back seat at the moment until I figure out a way to fit in a day or two with my teaching schedule. But I am in no hurry to do so, as I don’t want to get burnt out. I am hoping though to at least run once a week to keep my running endurance up and to run occasional races.
Last weekend I went to BGSU for my college’s homecoming with friends. It was an absolute blast and I pretended as if I were a freshman again…ahh, the glory days! It was a great time, but each year it becomes more and more exhausting to party! Am I getting old and boring or what?!
As of late I’ve been a teaching machine, teaching Pilates, Cardio classes, and Total Body weight training. I’ve also been doing a workout DVD here and there when the weather has been crappy. Last week I did a Yoga video, which was actually pretty challenging. It was a workout by Karen Voight. She’s tough!
As you know my pup, Boo, injured the pads on his feet. I am happy to say he recovered SO quickly and is back to his old crazy, happy self! Thanks for the well-wishes, he really appreciated it 😉
Well I pooped and so I am off to bed! I hope you all have a great night!
Do you like workout DVDs? If so, which ones are your favorite?
