I’m working really hard to put on the brakes!
It finally got cold here–21 degrees when I got up this morning 😦 I think one of my ultimate life goals is going to be moving somewhere warmer–but not too warm 🙂
As evidenced by the fact that I have once again not blogged for a month, things have been kind of crazy. However, it is slowly getting better. I’m looking forward to the time I am going to spend with my family over the holidays. I also have two really fun trips planned with my girlfriend, both to see bands that we love. We also have some plans to rearrange the apartment which I think will be a nice reset for creativity in the things we are both doing.
A big change, and something I am super excited about is that I went back to school. It was a bit of a scary change (I have spent far too much time in school already and I currently work at one), but I already feel invigorated and ready to charge forward with all of the ideas I have. I am enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am only 3 weeks into classes and it has already made a big difference in my life. In about 6 months I will be able to start working with clients, helping them transform their lives. So, if you or anyone you know is interested in a Health Coach, let me know!
One of my class assignments this week is to have a positive attitude. Wish me luck, especially today. I am on my way to the dentist, eek!
One photo for today. Here a picture of my breakfast buddy who likes to hang out while I have coffee.
Sometimes life happens.
And sometimes it all happens at once.
The last half of August was a crazy storm of life. In a three week period I was traveling for work, my grandmother passed away, and my girlfriend had major surgery on her knee. Hello, cortisol rush. I somehow missed all of September and nearly all of October. I think things are finally calming down…just in time for the holidays!
I just want to end with a few photos of what I’ve been up to.
My new love of sardines
My new obsession
Also an obsession!
Love you, grandma.
Sorry for the missed week, guys. It has been super crazy town around these parts. I am getting ready to travel for another work trip, and I seem to keep eating things I am allergic too 😦 and I don’t know what they are 😦 including today 😦 😦
Breakfast today was some leftover veggies with barbecue beef and a side of bacon 🙂
Crazy town led us to Chipotle for lunch. I had a barbacoa taco salad. It was super delish, but I tried the salad dressing for the first time today, and it did not agree with my insides 😦 I am extra sad because it was really good salad dressing.
Dinner was steak with asparagus and broccoli… Super yum
Breakfast this week has been a very delicious bowl of beef heart with bacon, onion, and mushrooms. Today I had it with a nectarine.
Curry-spiced sweet potatoes and broccoli for lunch.
And, by the time we got around to dinner, we decided to just grab a (gluten free, dairy free) pizza.
Now to fill my crockpot with a 4-lb grass-fed chuck roast 🙂
