Sometimes I get so caught up with sharing delicious recipes I skip the life stuff so I’m popping in today say hey, give y’all a little life update + a few fun links.
1. Fun News: I’m becoming a NASM personal trainer! Getting my certification has been on my bucket list for at least four or five years so when I saw that a local gym (ACAC Short Pump) was offering an 8 week class, I jumped at the chance. I had already heard good things about NASM from Julie and Courtney and I liked the fact that I would have to go to a class rather than just studying on my own.
So far I’m 3 weeks in and loving it. I have until March to take the exam and I’m still not 100% sure what I plan to do with the certification, but if nothing else the knowledge will be good to have for my health coaching. I’ll be sure to do more updates with what I’m learning and, of course, once I’m certified I’ll be sharing more workouts on here as well! I’m excited.
4. Not so fun news: Isaac and I just found this week that we have to move from our current house. We love our house and this was sprung upon us so we’re a little bummed by trying to make the most of it. Hopefully we can find a new house with features we’re currently missing — like a backyard with a little shed to store all of Isaac’s tools and a kitchen with more natural lighting for food pictures. It would be lovely not to have to take all my food outside this winter for photo shoots.
5. Start your day with a laugh by watching this Bud Light commercial. It’s perfect for all of us who didn’t know how to pronounce quinoa when we first started using it. For the record, quinoa does not taste like a dirty ol’ tree branch. My Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes or Fall Harvest Spinach Salad definitely prove that wrong.
What’s new and good in your life?
