What I'm excited about... you are reading the blog of a CERTIFIED BODYPUMP INSTRUCTOR, friends! Yup, I DID IT! I received my email on MONDAY that I was officially certified in BODYPUMP, WOOOHOO! I'll post more about it tomorrow but I am too stoked to keep the news to myself any longer. #soexcited #imadeithappen
What I'm eating this week... well, last week actually. Eating healthy took a back burner this month, but I've been back at it for the past few days. Salads were starting to taste a bit bland so I switched it up to tuna/avocado on cucumbers. Super easy, super healthy and super filling, which is what I call a triple win. Give it a try, y'all.
What I'm reminiscing about… our Nashville trip, last August. We had SUCH a fun trip last year on a random team and winning was just the icing on the cake. Our new team is going again in September so it's going to be a much different experience this time around. Fingers crossed we bring home the championship again.
What I'm working on... trying to find a BODYPUMP class to teach. Now that I'm CERTIFIED [eek] I can reach out to gyms to teach a class hopefully once a week. I have a few emails out and I plan to pick the brain of my GGX instructor on Friday.
What I'm loving... Le Husband's lil random gestures. He's not normally a flowers guy, he's more of a 'do small things around the house' for me kind of guy, so my Sunday surprise flowers really made me smile. Relationships have their ebbs and flows but he's always SO good to me and I'm forever grateful he's mine. #luckylady #blessedwiththebest
What we've been up to... getting back into the healthy swing of life. My lil 113 Whole30 body is no more as vacations and stressful weeks at work have taken their toll. My healthy eating pretty non-existent and I can feel it in my body and in my clothes. I'm pretty bummed out at myself, but hey, life happens and now it's time to hit it hard again.
What I'm listening to... Carrie Underwood release her new single earlier this week and I've been listening to it nonstop. It took me two listens to really get into the song, but after that it was constantly played on youtube at work. I think we all could use a 'smoke break' every now and then, right? #carrieunderwooddoesitagain #smokebreak
What I'm dreading... dealing with my passport name change. I have a fabulous international trip in the future and I need my passport to match my license, bah. BTW, married ladies, if you change your name within the first year of marriage it's free. Guess who didn't know that until too late? Yeah, this girl. I'm hoping to get everything sent in this week and crossing my fingers for zero delays. #needthatnewlastname #onlytwoyearslater
What I'm wearing... this summer I've been all about bright lips and lots of colors. I LOVE my Sugar Lip set and have been rocking the Berry shade this month. I've also been dressing up more for work than I have in the past. There have been a lot more dresses, skirts and I've been loving mixing colors. #brightlips #greenandblue
What I'm doing this weekend... eating lots of food. I'm cooking for my family [homemade pasta, meatballs, spaghetti sauce and brushetta] as a thank you for "supporting me in my video assessment" class. They were all troopers attending my class and I wanted to do something they would enjoy as a thank you. Fingers crossed it tastes as delicious as I expect.
What I'm looking forward to next month... celebrating our TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Where did the time go?
What else is new… nothing too much. A lot of the same ol, same ol living. We have some fun things in the works [fingers crossed] but I won't be sharing those until things are more serious. I am really in shock we are done with August and that September is right around the corner. Where did the summer go?
What have you been up to this month?
